Okay, this EV charging robot is wicked!

Have you ever dreamed of a mobile robot that would independently charge your EV with the tap of a button on your phone? Well, Envision Group has made it happen, and the firm says we will see its new device on the streets in June 2021. Last week, the Chinese green tech company launched what it claims to be the word’s first mass-produced charging robot, powered by 100% green electricity. “Mochi”, as it’s called, uses Envision Group’s EnOSTM intelligent operating system, which connects and manages ...

Student-led accelerator Envision reaches demo week for class one, looks to class two

Back in early July, TechCrunch covered the Envision Accelerator. The program was put together by a group of students and recent graduates, often with some early venture capital experience, to help give some young startups a boost, and to shake up industry diversity metrics at the same time. Now on the other side of their first batch’s official program and into its investor week, Envision shared a number of statistics regarding that first cohort, and talked about plans for its second. What I appr...

Student-led accelerator Envision is shaking up which startups get funded

Meet Envision, a new startup accelerator. The group, built and run by a collection of students and recent graduates, just closed the application process for its first cohort of startups. Its goal isn’t merely to find some companies and give them a boost, however. According to Annabel Strauss and Eliana Berger, two co-founders of Envision, it’s to shake up the diversity stats that we’ve all come to know. “We started Envision because we believe in a future where womxn, Black, and Latinx founder...

2021 Buick Envision: Let’s Try This Again

A seldom-mentioned player in the compact crossover arena, the Chinese-built Buick Envision had a complicated introduction to the U.S. market, landing in the middle of the 2016 model year with only pricey uplevel trims in tow. Buick quickly rectified the problem, adding lower-tier fare and sinking the Envision’s entry price to a more palatable level. […] The post 2021 Buick Envision: Let’s Try This Again appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

St. Petersburg is Bold in Mandating Envision

The City of St. Petersburg, Florida passed a progressive ordinance last week mandating that City infrastructure projects and newly constructed and renovated City building be third party certified as green.

Detroit Metro Bribery Scandal? Again? (Whistleblower Reward Post)

Airport construction contracts can involve billions of dollars. Much of that money comes from taxpayers. As I write this post from LaGuardia Airport, a billboard boldly claims that the new LGA makeover is estimated to cost more than $1,000,000,000.00 – that’s right over $1 billion! We previously successfully prosecuted a corrupt contractor who supplied non-compliant steel components used in the construction of the Miami Airport intermodal center. The Justice Department announced this week that f...

Buick Refreshes Its Logo to Appear More Refined and Modern

Buick new badge , no name Now consumers who really believe “That’s Not a Buick,” in line with the brand’s long-running marketing campaign, may have a point: Buicks won’t say “Buick” on them for much longer.

Traveling through Central America

A spell of insubordination at the beer bar I was working at had left me jobless. It was the busy season in Flagstaff, AZ, so my bartending gig had paid out nicely for the three or so months that I had been pouring pints. But the prospect of spending winter in a small town gave me serious anxiety, so with snow on the horizon, no desire to job hunt, and about five thousand dollars under the mattress, I bought a one-way ticket to Mexico City. I signed up for a WorkAway in a beachside hostel in Pu...

5 transformative festivals for experimenting with alternative lifestyles

Photo: Igor Domsac Ever since Woodstock, festivals have represented an escape from reality, a few days break from the grind of work and responsibility. And while I can walk (well, stumble) out of Coachella feeling totally refreshed about the choices I make in life, it’s never the kind of event that inspires me to change the way I act on a scale broader than my musical proclivities. But some festivals do strive for more. As festival culture becomes more mainstream, their potential to improve a p...

Meet the man behind Envision Festival

Photo: Claudio Toledo Last summer, I went to fifteen different music festivals, from Glastonbury in England to Sziget in Budapest. The story was always the same, stumbling out with a headache bigger than the main stage. I’d walk past tattered tents and piles of garbage spilling from their vessels onto what used to be grass, before it was trampled to death by 20,000 revelers. Two shirtless teenagers with dirt-stained skin and ratty shorts would kick an empty Gatorade bottle past the derelict Gre...
