Here's What Those Weird Black Tubes In The Road Are For

  Here's What Those Weird Black Tubes In The Road Are For I’ve been thinking about tubes. Specifically, the weird black tubes that you often find stretched across a roadway. What are those tubes for? What are they tracking? How do they work? The official name for these ominous road snakes is just “pneumatic road tube,” and if you guessed that they probably just take a traffic count, you are mostly correct. But they also do so much more!Here’s a good description of the actual operation of the tube setup from the U.S. Department of Transportation:Pneumatic road tube sensors send a burst of air pressure along a rubber tube when a vehicle’s tires pass over the tube.

Once in the air, the firm's sports car could then travel over terrain that normal vehicles can't, like water , thin ice, swamps, and deep snow. The company doesn't offer any info about when this machine might be available. Yagalet showed a completely different looking concept for a hovering

It works as a traditional car, too.

The Russian startup Yagalet has a bizarre, new idea about how to make an amphibious car – turn it into a hovercraft. If a floating sports car isn't odd enough, then Yagalet has some even weirder goals because if the first model is a success, then the firm wants to build similar tech into an SUV, minivan, and for some reason even a house.

The company doesn't provide many specifics about how the hovering system would work. Drivers pull a lever inside the cabin to deploy a flexible skirt around the vehicle. Yagalet doesn't explain how the powertrain then directs air underneath the car to cause it to hover.

  Audi recalls 342K vehicles for defective water pumps Audi A4, A5, A6 and Q5 models are all affected.A potential fire in a car is never a good thing, which is why Audi is recalling 1.16 million vehicles worldwide for coolant pump issues. Of those, 342,867 units are in the US that include the 2013-2017 A4 sedan and Allroad, 2013-2017 A5 coupe and cabriolet, 2012-2015 A6 and 2013-2017 Q5 crossover SUV equipped with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

The company believes that by building a hovercraft it solves a common problem with flying cars because drivers wouldn't need a special license to pilot the model. Yagalet even suggests that owners in cities could use the machine to avoid traffic jams by taking waterways into town.

Yagalet also doesn't yet explain how the driver maneuvers its vehicle but promises to reveal more info later. Since the vehicle is in the air, there needs to be some sort of rudder or way to direct the propulsion, but there's nothing evident on the body to make this possible. Slowing down might be a challenge, too. There's also the question of whether the firm is using separate drivetrains for wheeled and hovering travel or if the company has a clever way of using a single powerplant to drive both systems.

Yagalet showed a completely different looking concept (above) for a hovering sports car in 2017. That vehicle was a roadster with a composite body, and power came from an electric motor. The firm didn't provide many other details, though.

The Mid-Engine Ferrari Is Now 50 Years Old .
In 1968, a legend hit the road for the first time—the Dino 206 GT.Looking at the Dino today gives us a good reminder of how far the mid-engine Ferrari has come in the last 50 years. Well, 51 years, sort of—the Dino 206 GT debuted in 1967, but it didn't hit the road until 1968. Ferrari admits that it probably should've celebrated the 50th anniversary last year, but it had too much going on heralding the 70th anniversary of the brand. But that's besides the point.
