Translogic visits Georgia Tech for a glimpse at the future of parking. First, we demo Ford's remote parking program by driving a golf cart around campus from the comfort of an off-site lab; think of remote parking as a virtual valet.

We don't usually cover things like rocket engines, as they cannot really be classified as being "green" in any sense of the word. This one is really no different, but it is 40 percent better than the engines currently in use, so I decided to go ahead and share it with all of you. I can't give too much commentary on how this works, but the article mentions that the engine can use solar power in space, and operators on the ground can control the exhaust thrust, sort of like how one might "shift ge
