According to the crew of Duke Engineering (the company, NOT the university with the recently impressive football program and detestable basketball fan base), their axial engine is the most efficient and lightest engine you can install in boats, small aircrafts, and power generators. In fact, this new axial engine can become THE mechanical engine of the future; a future that could truly be nigh! Now, you can take that with a grain of salt (because it’s the internet) or you can get 1000% percent behind this claim (ALSO because it’s the internet), so here’s a GIF above this text and there’s a video to watch after the break. ENJOY! Continue reading “Thanks Duke Engineering for this Weird, Yet Efficient & Light, Engine…”
If you can declare a single flaw with mechanical watches, it’d be that they can very often be inaccurate. Due to the number of gears and springs, they will always be incorrect on the exact time every now and then, despite how carefully put together. While quartz offer a solution to accuracy, they can be a bit uninteresting, so how about combining the best of both worlds. You know, like how VCXO did with their new Ox One watch, which features a mechanical movement that automatically syncs with GPS satellites with the press of a button — or “Magic Button” as they call it — on the side of the watch.
