SEGWAY APEX ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLE

With 0-60 in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 125 it’s almost more of a crazy scooter. No details on range from the now Chinese (Ninebot) owned Segway. https://uncrate.com/segway-apex-electric-motorcycle/

400 mile range @ 200mph with 1000hp. Seems reasonable. Supposedly all of this can be yours for only $60k. Lucid took in over $1B in funding from a group in Saudi so it’s certainly possible this could happen.

Food made from electricity (and air)

A new protein called “Solein” is created user solar power and air.. and some sort of magical fermentation process. If it can be economically scaled it up it could revolutionize how we feed the world.
