The $2 Million Supercharged Electric Ferrari – ProClip Roundup Recap
ProClip Roundup Recap Blog: Season 2 Episode 5
Hey everybody, welcome back to this week’s edition of the ProClip Roundup! We’re bringing you all the latest news on mobile and car tech news that’s actually worth talking about. Here are the stories we talked about this week.
The Future is Here with Flying Cars
We were promised flying cars in the future, and the future is getting a lot closer. A startup backed by Google co-founder Larry Page called Opener has revealed the BlackFly, a flying car that they intend to sell for the price of an SUV. The vehicle carries just the operator and has no wheels, so it cannot be operated on roads. It uses four propellers on the front wing and four propellers on the rear wing. It has been approved for flight in the US and Canada. Owners in the US will be required to pass the FAA’s Private Pilot Program. You can check out the BlackFly in person at the 2018 EAA AirVenture Convention in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
The End (of 3G) is Near
Verizon has announced that it will no longer be activating new 3G phones. Verizon has committed to shutting down their 3G CDMA network entirely by the end of 2019. The announcement brings a wave of nostalgia as another part of tech that was once the best disappears forever.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Rumors
The announcement for the Samsung Note 9 is still weeks away, but we’re already getting rumors about the Galaxy S10. The lineup is expected to have three models, including a 5.8-inch screen, a 6.1-inch screen and a 6.4-inch screen. The two larger devices are rumored to include an in-screen fingerprint reader, which is a feature that not even Apple has pursued lately. The next iteration of flagship devices from Samsung are expected to be released in spring of 2019.
The Supercharged Electric Ferrari
The need for speed is ramping up with the Italian brand behind Ferrari. Automobili Pininfarina is the new brand that will focus on fully electric super sports cars. This week, they unveiled the PFO, which will be a 250-mph battery-powered hyper car. The car will be able to charge in just 15 minutes, and can hit 0-60 mph in under two seconds. This stunning electric car will be on display at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019, and you can order your very own later this year for the low cost of $2 Million!
