Japan’s Epsilon rocket with onboard AI successfully launches, leaves plenty of change

Epsilon rocket with onboard AI successfully launches from Japan, doesn't break the bank

Affordable is a relative term, but in the world of rocket science Japan’s recently launched Epsilon qualifies as such. Costing just $ 37-million (NASA claims a typical launch costs around $ 450-million) to send off, Jaxa — Japan’s space agency — rightly considers it a steal. Epsilon launched from the south-west of the country at 2pm local time. Its mission? To deploy a telescope that Jaxa advises will observe our neighboring planets from its position in Earth’s orbit. The cost efficiency is being put down to the rocket’s artificial intelligence, something that slashes the man-power needed from 150 to 8. Let’s just hope the thriftiness wasn’t just to fund that other recent launch.

Japan’s Terra Motors to introduce electric scooter with iPhone connection

Japan's Terra Motors to introduce electric scooter with iPhone connection

The Apple Maps fiasco excepted, we have it pretty good where location-based services are concerned. But in areas like South East Asia, that’s not entirely the case. Which is why Japan-based Terra Motors is prepping to launch the A4000i, an electric scooter that also features an iPhone connector (compatible with the 3GS and up) for big data collection. The company’s positioning the A4000i as a means of gathering location data — useful for mapping — as well as mileage and battery performance (a lithium cell rated for 50,000km) for that region of the world. There’s no word on exactly when Terra plans to launch this scooter overseas, but when it eventually does, expect to see the A4000i retail for around ¥450,000 (about $ 4,500 USD).

Japan's Resident Evil 6 bundle costs $  1,300: nets you a leather jacket, doesn't make you cool

Engadget has seen plenty of limited edition items looking to lighten the wallets of oil barons and hedge fund managers alike. Now Capcom’s readying its bundle for Resident Evil 6′s Japan launch and it includes protagonist Leon’s leather jacket — available in sizes S, M, L and XL. A complete set of as-yet unrevealed “tablet cases”, supposedly emblazoned with character designs will also arrive in the set, as those wealthy enough to afford the 104,000 yen ($ 1,300) set presumably have at least four devices to garnish with Resident Evil livery. Japanese one-percenters can hit up the preorder site — with their choice of jacket size — at the source below.

Japan’s ‘Dream Project’ will use robots to tend disaster-stricken farmland

Flooded Fields in Miyagi Prefecture

Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture is planning an experimental farm to help revive some of the land devastated by the March 11th earthquake and tsunami — and it’s going to use robots to do it. Approximately 618 acres in the Miyagi Prefecture have been set aside for the plan — dubbed the “Dream Project” — which will see unmanned tractors and robots tending, harvesting, and boxing rice, wheat, soybeans, and various fruits and vegetables. The project also aims to create a sort of self-sustaining ecosystem unto itself, with the carbon dioxide emissions from the robotic machinery being channeled back into the crops to promote growth in lieu of chemical fertilizers.

Northern Japan was hit hard by the disasters earlier this year, with…

Inhabitat’s Week in Green: LA Auto Show, tidal energy farm and Japan’s futuristic eco-city

Each week our friends at Inhabitat recap the week’s most interesting green developments and clean tech news for us — it’s the Week in Green.

It was a big week for green cars, as Inhabitat scoured the floors of the LA Auto Show to search for the latest and greatest in green auto design and innovation. We were excited to check out Audi’s hybrid-diesel E-Tron Spyder concept car, Croatia’s first electric vehicle prototype the DOK-ING XD, and Honda’s hotly anticipated 2013 electric version of their popular Fit. Honda also made waves at the west coast auto show with their Civic Natural Gas car, which took home the title of ‘Green Car of the Year’ — the Civic is the cleanest running internal combustion car certified by the EPS. Meanwhile, Ford announced that their EVOS plug-in hybrid will be hitting the market next year, FlyKly’s ultra-modern electric bikes have become a choice ride in New York City, a German museum decided to recreate an operable version the world’s oldest electric car, and the US Navy successfully sent a test-ship out on a 117 hour voyage using a 50 percent algae-derived fuel.

There were also some exciting announcements in clean energy technology this week, including a recent report completed by leading scientists that predict giant orbiting solar power plants could supply all the earth’s energy needs by 2041. We also learned that France will open the world’s largest tidal energy farm in 2012, and GE will provide the turbines for a $ 100 million wind farm in Mongolia. Also for Mongolia, a local geo-engineering firm is making plans to battle the capital’s scorching hot summers by cooling it down with gigantic manmade chunks of ice that mimic naleds. London’s audacious mayor came up with an equally ambitious idea — his plan is to curb pollution by spraying the city’s roads with a sticky calcium-based adhesive able to catch airborne pollutants. We also got the inside scoop from Panasonic’s Energy Solution Business Director, Haruyuki Ishio, on the futuristic eco-city that is being planned for Fujisawa, Japan.
