TF-X™ is Terrafugia’s vision for the future of personal transportation. A four-seat, plug-in hybrid electric flying car with fly-by-wire vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capabilities, TF-X™ is designed to bring personal aviation to the world. The design will make use of the high power density and reliability of modern electric motors in combination with parallel power and control system architectures to achieve a higher level of safety than modern automobiles. TF-X™ will provide true door-to-door transportation combined with the freedom of vertical takeoff and landing — creating a new dimension of personal mobility.
High in the mountains of southern Africa, 15 swimmers compete in one of the most extreme—and chilling—races on earth. With no wet suits or protection, they swim one kilometer in water that is cold enough to be fatal. For these athletes it’s not just a battle to the finish, every stroke is a battle to stay alive with the biggest fight immediately after the race.
