Aeroscraft Rigid Variable Buoyancy Air Vehicle | TRANSLOGIC
Watch Next Ep. Here: http://goo.gl/EBUqeC Don't call it a blimp. The Aeroscraft is a Rigid Variable Buoyancy Air Vehicle. This advanced airship's internal ballast system allows it to hover, ascend and descend without a runway takeoff, and can offload cargo without re-ballsting. Possible applications range from entertainment travel to military missions. We head to a historic hangar in Tustin, Calif. to check out the latest Aeroscraft prototype.

Brammo Empulse R Electric Motorcycle | TRANSLOGIC
Watch Next Ep. Here: http://goo.gl/ib3Mwj We head to Ashland, Oregon for a chance to test drive the Brammo Empulse R electric motorcycle. The Empulse R has a unique 6-speed transmission setup to provide plenty of push off the line and a top speed of over 100 miles per hour. But can the eerily silent, gas-free Empulse R really keep up with its gas-burning sportbike rivals? We interview Brammo CEO Craig Bramscher and take the Empulse R for a spin to find out.

Kenguru Wheelchair-Accessible EV | Translogic
Watch Next Ep. Here: http://goo.gl/T9YPk3 One major issue facing transportation is accessibility, especially for those in wheelchairs. From public to personal transit, a wheelchair presents unique mobility challenges. Sure, it's possible to outfit existing vehicles for wheelchair accessibility, but the process is expensive and doesn't always yield a complete, integrated solution. That's where Kenguru changes things. The Kenguru is an electric vehicle with no seats, that allows drivers to control the car from their wheelchair. We went to Pflugerville, Texas to try it out.
