Kubo: an electric scooter to carry all your stuff

You may remember Lit Motors from C-1 vehicles, but authors have got another vehicle that they’re introducing you to. It is their new electric scooter KUBO.
Being big fans of two-wheeled vehicles, they found existing motor scooters lacking – they make carrying anything a hassle, and it was hard to find a good quality electric scooter anywhere. So as a side project during their free time, the guys decided to make their own.
Among the main parameters of KUBO there are: 45 mph top speed, up to 50 miles per charge, 300 lbs capacity, cargo + rider, 22″ square cargo space with tie-down hooks, loops, and rails for a wide variety of ways to secure your stuff, on-board charger—charge in a few hours from any wall outlet, adjustable-height seat (for riders from 5’0″ to 6’5″), small lockable stow compartment, perfect for extra bungee cords, phone, etc. And many others.
Kubo is the bee’s knees, it’s a fun way to get around the city, regardless of the terrain or how much you’re carrying with you. Though it looks unique, it’s just as easy as riding a regular scooter. It is the new form of urban transportation.

Reactive Grip™ – Touch Feedback for VR & Video Games

Reactive Grip touch feedback is a revolutionary new touch feedback technology to virtual reality and video games that blows the doors off traditional “rumble” vibration feedback. It works by mimicking the friction and shear forces that we feel in the real world when holding an object or touching a surface. This is accomplished by measuring the movements of the player’s hand and actuating small sliding plates in the grip of the controller to recreate the friction and shear forces you expect when holding an actual object such as a sword, slingshot, gun, or fishing rod. It is called Reactive Grip feedback because it reacts to your actions and motions in the virtual world.
