Elon Musk Photographs the Tesla Roadster His SpaceX Rocket Will Send Past Mars

Published

Elon Musk took to Instagram recently to unveil photos of his personal Tesla Roadster that he plans to send to space.

As the SpaceX founder announced several weeks ago, the company’s Falcon Heavy rocket will include a payload consisting of Musk’s 250mph Tesla Roadster once the rocket is ready to launch — which could be very soon.

The Roadster, which has left other super cars in the dust, going from 0 to 60mph in 1.9 seconds, is pictured here between two halves of the Falcon Heavy rocket.

The SpaceX rocket is supposed to be the most powerful in the world, as it flaunts three combined boosters. Such a construction has led Musk to admit that the rocket could explode due to the sheer power of its boosters.

So, instead of sending humans or valuable payloads in the rocket, Musk intends to send his Tesla Roadster into space and past Mars. Conventional dummy payloads are “too boring,” according to the Tesla and SpaceX founder.

PUMA Unveils Game-Changing Fit Intelligence Technology

Published

on

PUMA today announced its latest footwear technology. Dubbed Fit Intelligence (Fi), it is the successor to AutoDisc, which launched just two years prior.

According to the German sportswear giant Fi “is designed to automate, fine tune, and adjust performance fit for PUMA footwear.”

With Nike building on its auto-lacing technology with the Adapt BB and adidas forging ahead with its accelerated footwear production at its SPEEDFACTORY locations, PUMA looks to bring its own, game-changing technology to market.

The first Fi footwear to launch is a running shoe that employs a micromotor that powers a cable lacing system. Simply gesturing up or down on the forefoot Fi module tightens or loosens the lacing system. Additionally, it comes with a smart sensing capability that adapts to the shape of the foot of each wearer.

Using an app, sneakerheads can monitor, adjust, and fine tune their Fi-equipped footwear.

“We have created a product that speaks to the future of sport which is life in motion. It’s fast and changing all the time,” said Charles Johnson, PUMA’s Global Director of Innovation.

Fi is the latest step in PUMA’s continued attempt to push the boundaries of performance and lifestyle product. In 1968 PUMA debuted the first laceless sports shoe with Velcro™ straps and followed that up in 1991 with the first cable closure, seen on the PUMA Disc.
