Quadrofoil is the First Electric Personal Watercraft

Employing a team of engineers and nautical enthusiasts, tech development company Quadrofoil has designed and manufactured the world’s first fully electric and completely environmentally friendly personal watercraft. The watercraft is operated by battery, while being propelled by curved blades underneath the surface, allowing for enhanced buoyancy that lifts the vessel above the surface and allows it to travel with minimum water resistance at up to 20 knots. The vehicle also clocks in at an expense of 1€ per hour, with hardly any maintenance costs to consider. The steering wheel incorporates a simple touchscreen display, informing the driver about battery, range, speed and consumption statistics; the wheel itself doubles as the key, so when you’re finished jetting along, take the wheel with you and no one but you can start the engine. What’s more, owners will enjoy the ability to ride on lakes, rivers, seas & eco-zones where some motorized vessels are not allowed, due to the silent motor and zero emissions.

Apple Watch Set for Spring 2015 Release

Since Tim Cook’s announcement of the Apple Watch last month, the tech company has remained hush about a specific release date outside of Cook’s “early 2015″ tease. Recent news development suggests that eager fans will have to wait a little longer before they can get their hands on one.

Tech site 9to5mac recently obtained a transcript of a video from an unamed source, in which Apple’s Senior Vice President of Retail and Online stores Angela Ahrendts revealed a spring 2015 launch in her address to company employees. While the new timeline is just as vague as the old one, it would put us somewhere between March and June to see the much-anticipated smartwatch hit stores. Hopefully Apple will come out with an official statement soon, so stay tuned and check back for more updates.
