25 Bold Technology Ideas

okay let’s talk about twenty-five bold ideas this was from out of the other day
0:07
i was waiting for my car for an oil change and i was picked up a popular
0:11
mechanics and i saw an interesting article twenty five bold idea ideas for
0:15
the future a lot of these have to do with interesting ways to and increase
0:19
efficiency so on and so forth let’s go through some of these i think some of
0:21
these are really great
0:23
vehicle start stop by twenty twelve manufacturing giant bosch estimates half
0:27
the new vehicles in europe
0:29
will be able to shut down their engines whenever they begin to idle mike already
0:32
does that side of a civic
0:35
and you want and n unless in unless there’s certain situations like where my
0:38
a c is turn of the very high
0:40
when i come to a red light
0:42
the engine just shuts off completely the the heating a c stay on my radio stays
0:47
on everything works the same
0:48
does the engine shut off
0:50
and apparently this will increase but phil connelly by eight percent which if
0:53
you extrapolate out out it’s a pretty big difference interesting we’ll see if
0:58
is get scheduled for introduction and the u_s_ as of now it’s not scheduled to
1:02
be
1:03
driving on a high level
1:05
well road congestion gets worse all the time there’s thousands of miles of
1:09
highway the medians to be precise
1:11
that are unused and there’s a bridge engineer linda fig who says a gap just
1:15
six feet across in the mean in the middle of of highway lanes and support
1:19
elevated roadway three lanes wide
1:22
and um… they’ve they’ve tested this out
1:25
this can reduce in certain areas where the where they’ve done it adding
1:28
reversible lanes
1:29
reducing commutes that we’re going with forty five minutes to twenty i think
1:32
that’s an extraordinary idea doesn’t require
1:35
new real estate radio land permits it’s on the existing space that the highways
1:40
already have i think it’s a great idea
1:43
sure i guess so you know in certain areas it would be of the construction
1:46
prospered so i’m sure be pretty hard but you know if it’s necessary it’s
1:49
necessary absolutely and
1:51
they could be offset in many cases because a lot of these bridges can also
1:54
carry a light rail
1:56
so you can have a ta radio tower as people outside of massachusetts may not
1:59
know the tears
2:01
assembly a commuter rail whatever you want to call it
2:03
great idea ok swapping out mpg fuel ratings for gallons per hundred miles so
2:09
lewis if i ask you real quick
2:11
if you go from eighteen to twenty eight mpg how does that compare with going
2:15
from thirty four
2:16
two fifty mpg can you tell me which one is actually a better percentage change
2:22
no i guess not it takes a little while so the idea here is that we would
2:25
replace the mpg efficiency with miles
2:30
gallons per hundred miles so that it’s very clear
2:33
week we can compare we’re going from five point five gallons per hundred
2:36
miles to three point six gallons per hundred miles that’s a savings
2:39
of two gallons every hundred miles and i guess in europe a lot of ratings are
2:43
already coming i think it’s a good idea
2:45
if this is and i think that’s really going to
2:47
make a big change for the environment but it always make it much clear when we
2:51
talk about efficiency standards
2:53
to talk about how much of a changes there really an efficiency
2:56
right i don’t think it’ll be too hard too
2:58
we’re just a a small meter like that in every cars computer that you can see on
3:02
your dashboard no and many cars already have a mpg meter doesn’t seem like a bt
3:07
difficult to change it
3:08
two gallons per hundred miles okay better airlines we talked a couple of
3:11
times off air lewis about how
3:14
the speed that we can travel out right now by airplane
3:17
is in great part limited or at least that the practical speed by how much
3:24
by how much fuel is wasted once you go above this kind of five hundred thirty
3:27
mile mile-per-hour limit
3:30
changing planes from the tube with wings to more of a
3:34
uh… one big weighing in the wings are kind of larger and connected to the
3:37
fuselage i guess is the next thing in aviation
3:40
and that to me would be an interesting thing to see especially if we can start
3:43
to travel faster
3:44
wasting even less phelan analyst here big traveler
3:47
that would probably be a big advantage to you
3:50
yes it also be interesting to see how they deal with
3:53
turbulence
3:54
it would be interesting and i barely the seats that would have to be on the wing
3:58
would feel a lot of g force during turns according to this article very
4:02
interesting
4:03
polaroid those all the time we have this week thanks for listening mid-week
4:06
politics dot com is the website
4:07
and we’ll be back with more next week
