Electric planes were once thought to be a futuristic pipe-dream, however, they will become part of mainstream air travel sooner than you think.

Airlines have always been so dependent on the price of oil, but if we switch to electric planes, they will be less susceptible to changes in fuel prices. Electric planes have been in development for more than a decade now, but they’re finally reaching an age where they could be practical for commercial use.

What is an Electric Plane?

Electric planes are not to be confused with their gas-powered counterparts and are instead powered by batteries or fuel cells that power the electric motors. They offer a variety of benefits over gas-powered planes, such as reduced noise pollution, zero emissions at take-off and landing, and much longer flight times.

Benefits of Electric Planes

Electric planes have several advantages over gas-powered planes such as:

  1. They’re quieter and much cheaper to operate, with no need for oil changes or fickle jet engine parts.
  2. Since electric planes are powered by electricity, the engines are quieter and they don’t produce greenhouse gases as traditional aircraft do. They also don’t use a propeller which means less noise pollution for the environment in general.
  3. Traditional aircraft create so much turbulence that it causes them to have an unpleasant ride for passengers. However, electric planes produce very little turbulence which means it gives passengers a smoother ride and a better experience overall.
  4. Airports will also be able to take advantage of this technology because it will lower their operating costs due to electric planes being more efficient in terms of fuel consumption.

The only downside for the passengers is that the battery life in these planes would be much shorter than traditional planes. However, that may not be a downside at all since it could mean cheaper and more frequent flights for passengers.

Currently, research is being undertaken into what it would take to make them mainstream, including estimates of when the first flight may occur.

Wendover created a very interesting video making the case for electric planes to go mainstream. Definitely worth check it out above!

iPhone 13 Date and Price Leak

As we head into August, the long-awaited release of the brand new iPhone 13 is on the horizon.



New iPhone 13 Release details

As we head into August, the long-awaited release of the brand new iPhone 13 is on the horizon. While the global chip shortage is still causing manufacturing challenges for many companies across industries, Apple still seems to be un-phased and is expected to announce new smartphones in September.

So what’s the big hype about the new iPhone 13? 

  • LTPO displays with 120Hz refresh rates for Pro model displays
  • Improved 5G modem
  • Faster A15 Bionic chip
  • Improved ultrawide lens on the Pro models
  • Touch ID in the display
  • Smaller notch

Note: 120Hz LTPO displays are the next generation of LCD screens. They have been implemented in digital devices like gaming consoles and televisions for years now. This means that the iPhone 13 will be able to display a higher refresh rate with less ghosting than ever before.

In general, these displays have a higher contrast ratio because they are more capable of displaying deep blacks and whites without distortion or compromise. This means that the user experience is much more immersive than it would be on a standard LCD screen.

Will the new iPhone 13 be more expensive?

Some analysts predict that the iPhone 13 might be a little more expensive than the previous generation, but overall, we think Apple will keep the existing price range of $699, $799, $999, and $1,099, respectively.

There is a really good video from Matt Talks Tech which summarizes all the new features and release date worth checking out. See video above.
