Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2011

Bad news if you were hoping to play some Killzone 3 in the next 11 hours. Sony has announced that the Playstation Network will be down for 11 hours due to required maintenance. It seems like a long time compared to how long it usually is, but maybe they have a surprise for us.

You will not be able to sign into PSN, Play games online or use the PSN store. Other than that, we don’t have any details, but if you get the message “The PlayStation Network has been suspended.” when trying to login, don’t sweat it. It doesn’t mean your account has been banned.

Cadillac WTF: Zero maintenance with 24 wheels

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on January 14th, 2009

Cadillac WTF: Zero maintenance with 24 wheelsHere’s one hell of a conceptual design: the Cadillac World Thorium Fuel concept. Otherwise known as the Cadillac WTF. It was created by Loren Kulesus. Everything about the aptly named WTF has been created to last for 100 years without maintenance. That’s the reason for the element number ninety, thorium: to act as a nuclear fuel powering batteries that would power this beast.

Also, every major system is redundant just in case of a failure. Even the wheels are covered and shouldn’t give you much trouble. The wheels don’t have individual tires. In fact, what you get is one combined unit made up of six individual wheels. That gives you 24 wheels in all, and each wheel has its own induction motor just for good measure. According to the creator, “The vehicle would require the tires to be adjusted every five years, but no material would need to be added or subtracted.”
