    Investigation::Car #40

  • Microsoft: Their Live Search for Devices is a system, that will allow drivers to search for nearby businesses using information gathered from their vehicle’s satellite navigation system. This sounds familiar.

    Investigation::Car #41

  • Porsche Design: Designed ship, and building.
  • VAG: VAG→Audi shows travolution system. The point we want to mention here is their choice of the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) system as the basis.
  • FortuneSport VES: We only quote: "Inspired by Group C prototypes, the chassis of this road and track car will feature an aluminum semi-monocoque with a mid-mounted V8 and a pushrod suspension. Key weight-saving features are full composite bodywork [...]", "takes its influence from former Group C prototypes", "Specializing in composites and aerospace-derived technology, FortuneSport’s new car was designed around an obsession for low weight.", "Especially given the green movement, the best way to engage the driver was to reduce vehicle mass.", "obsession with lightweight", "techniques passed down from aerospace", "a beast to boot", "The Rt.S on steroids", and "this will work well if we are open with our clients".
    The engine is from Audi (our guess) and the concept with marketing is stolen from us (SOS Raptor and SOS 962 ST, announced in April and May). Btw.: Without FXX (minimally 3 Computers and Sensors to the maximum) there is no supercar status anymore. We have it, you and the others not.

    © Well done E.H.. So, the teaser, as said by the Motor UnAuthority, is not new, and it is not designed and also not engineered by FortuneSport.
    We thought, that Gumpert would take this design for the Apollo 2.0.

    The final ranking in the first olympic disciplin 'Capture the flame':
    1. place Gold: France
    2. place Silver: Great Britain
    3. place Bronze: Australia, and Japan
    Every attendee gave it all, and there were only very tiny differences.

    There are rumors that a Great Britain based architecture office has built a nest like building somewhere in Asia. Maybe it was in China.

Said that, we are building up a Roboticle™→Lego® robot customizer™, so you can compose your own macrofig exterior. Actually two different materials are offered, one is based on synthetic material and the other is a soft fabric material.

  • Daimler: There is a new picture on the titelpage of a car magazin showing a prototyp of a red AMG Gullwing (SLC, W197, ...) with headlamps that we are sketching since 4 or 5 years. We looked at this special case since we saw the headlamps of the new SL (see also our pictures of the Powerset Design).

    Investigations::AI, and Knowledge management

  • Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Remko Ricanek: Wir zitieren aus einer Masterarbeit: "Das Wort OntoScope setzt sich aus dem Präfix Onto- als Kurzform von Ontologie und dem Suffix -Scope aus dem Englischen für ein Instrument zum Beobachten zusammen. Das englische -scope leitet sich wiederum vom griechischen skopein (=betrachten) ab." Die Arbeit enthält Informationen, die unter ande- rem die Funktionalität der Anwendung ProViz exakt widerspiegeln. ProViz basiert auf der von OntoLinux verwendeten Tulip Software-Bibliothek und sollte auch deshalb im Rahmen dieser Masterarbeit bekannt sein. Zudem wurden nicht alle Quellen genannt, wie zum Beispiel OntoLinux, und unser Markenschutz vorsätzlich missachtet.
  • Ontology-Partners: The corporation tries to do the well-known Wild West business strategy. The described technology was not developed by this corporation. Also, the corporation has our trademark Ontoscope™ registered in the United Kingdom despite the fact, that we are using it since years. With this note, we are disagreeing the registration.

    Comment of the Day #3
    "After the electroscope, endoscope, gyroscope, horoscope, kaleidoscope, microscope, oscilloscope, periscope, spectroscope, stethoscope, telescope, and ... comes the Ontoscope." [Christian Stroetmann, October/November 2006]

    Bullfight III (2008)

    For us the interesting theme is not only the interplay between light, body/form, and shadow. What else us affects are the cortical mechanisms of sound and form processing in the brain (see for example visual and auditory perception and illusion, and random dot stereogram), and how minimal an abstraction can be (made) to deliver an information.
    An other interesting point in conjunction with this image is the abstraction of star constellations with objects (eg. animals).

  • General: Rims suddenly have to have 5 spokes.
  • Peugeot: We quote: "Peugeot Style". It is some kind of striking, that many of the 29 finalist of their 5.th design contest have some dependances on our work. There were better design studies presented (eg. the design concept e-mu), which haven't made their way into the finals.
  • VAG→Audi: Kaum haben wir den SOS J! angekündigt, da werden neue Fotos des Audi R8 Spider lanciert. Auffällig hier sind die Lufteinlässe anstatt der R8-kennzeichnenden Seitenschilde (siehe RSQ Bild vom 10. August 2008) und der veränderte Kühlergrill. Um das nicht neue Kühlergrilldesign bekannter zu machen wurde zudem ein S5 Evo Journalisten vorgestellt.
  • Porsche: Erste Fotos eines Boxster RS werden gezeigt. Natürlich hat der Prototyp einen grösseren Heckspoiler und einen neu geformten Diffusor (und ein Hardtop).
  • Tesla Motors: Speculates about a Model S based SUV.

    Our Space Shuttle NG X-3033/MagicStar is a 3rd (projected to the year 2025) and 4th (projected to the year 2040) generation Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV). We don't do 2rd generation technology research and actually we're looking at MagnetoHydro- Dynamics (MHD) for shock wave handling, MagnetoGasDynamics for power extraction, heat management, and flow conditioning, ElectroDynamics for drag modulation, as well as our own developed Multi Mode In-Atmosphere and In-Space Variable Thrust and Specific Impulse MagnetoPlasma Engines (function without vacuum). The technology will than be further developed and used for our Style of Speed (SOS) 5th generation RLV/Spaceship Twin Ion Engine Royal (TIE R)/LightSwift.
