Technology on the move

Much as I lament, at times, the end of the internal combustion engine, the recent electric-vehicle advances are pretty cool.

For example, last week Tesla showed the prototype for its battery-powered, nearly self-driving semi that they say can go up to 500 miles on a charge—not good enough for long-distance trucking but terrific for many routes, especially as the truck is exhaust-free and cheaper to run than diesels.

Equally interesting is the development of wireless charging. It's already available for smaller items, but soon vehicles will be able to recharge without plugs, & eventually, without even stopping.
