Striving to reduce vehicle weight in order to increase fuel economy, Honda focused on Friction Stir Welding (FSW) and developed a new technology for the continuous welding of steel and aluminum. This technology generates a new and stable metallic bonding between steel and aluminum by moving a rotating tool on the top of the aluminum which is lapped over the steel with high pressure. As a result, the welding strength becomes equal to or beyond conventional Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding

This new technology contributes to an improvement in fuel economy by reducing body weight by 25% compared to a conventional steel sub frame. In addition, electricity consumption during the welding process is reduced by approximately 50%. It also enabled a change in the structure of the sub frame and the mounting point of suspension, which increased the rigidity of the mounting point by 20% and also contributed to the vehicle’s dynamic performance.


Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today announced that it has newly developed a technology for the continuous welding of the dissimilar metals of steel and aluminum and applied it for the first time in the world to the sub frame of a mass-production vehicle, a key component of a vehicle body frame.


Audi nanuk quattro concept

What do you get when you combine a mid-engined sports car with and off-road vehicle? This is Audi’s idea of a “crossover.”
The nanuk quattro’s styling looks like a combination of an R8 and a Dakar racer, and Audi says the nanuk quattro is just as capable off-road as a normal supercar is on it.
Power comes from a 5.0-liter turbodiesel V10, which produces 544 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque. That prodigious power gets the nanuk quattro to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 189.52 mph. Yet it still gets 30.16 mpg on the U.S. test cycle. Talk about the best of both worlds.

the Samsung Galaxy Aurora smartphone concept is more likely a futuristic phablet, something like Galaxy Note IV, if you want. It’s supposed to feature a new type of battery, much stronger than Li-Ion and this one is called L-Lion, with a power of 820k mAh, that’s

just crazy.Image

The battery has the same size of Li-Ion, but it can get very hot, so it’s surrounded by 11 extremely powerful nano fans, cooling the CPU inside and the battery. The GPU here is a PowerVR Series 5XT SGXMX20 with 12 cores and the Samsung Aurora seems to run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, although I expected something more futuristic. I expect technology from the future 10 or maybe 20 years to be inside this device, so a 16 core processor wouldn’t surprise me at all.

Also 128GB of storage, 5G connectivity and a 21MP camera are all specifications that come to my mind and I associated them to this model. I hope the designer likes my ideas regarding his creation, but anyway frankly speaking I prefer this design to the real Galaxy Note II, that’s so predictable. Do you like this one more?

How It Works: 3-D TV Without Glasses

One hitch in bringing 3-D motion pictures to home theaters has been the glasses—people hate them. Yet viewers have been enjoying motionless 3-D images unassisted since at least the 1960s. At that time, VariVue was printing postcards covered with a lenticular array that sent each eye a slightly different view.
hiw-teaser-3dtvThis year Toshiba demonstrated a similar kind of glasses-free 3-D display, and Nintendo released its 3DS. Instead of a lens, the 3DS uses a barrier to produce the stereoscopic effect.
