The U.S. Military Just Attached a Laser Weapon to an Apache Gunship | Outbreaks of Futurity | Scoop.it
The thrust of the U.S. military’s laser weapon tests have focused on the sea, on land and aboard fixed-wing aircraft. You need a lot of power to generate a beam capable of burning through a target, which limits where you can stick a laser. But they can work on helicopters

I Was The First American Journalist To Visit This Unreal Hidden Car Museum

I Was The First American Journalist To Visit This Unreal Hidden Car Museum | Outbreaks of Futurity | Scoop.it
SEAT may be one of the biggest carmakers that’s almost unknown in America. They’re sold pretty much everywhere but America, and as a result even American gearheads who are aware of Citroëns and Skodas often forget all about Spain’s biggest carmaker. That’s probably why no American automotive journalists have ever visited SEAT’s wonderful historic collection. Until now, bitches.

This '50s Era Cartoon About Cars In The Year 2000 Is A Record Of A Forgotten Future

This '50s Era Cartoon About Cars In The Year 2000 Is A Record Of A Forgotten Future | Outbreaks of Futurity | Scoop.it
This charming little 1956 cartoon commissioned by the Automobile Manufacturers Association is interesting because it seems to have, at least according to some sources, lead to the development of the famous mid-century-future cartoon series the Jetsons six years later. The similarities are pretty striking, and the voice of George Jetson himself is even in this cartoon. Mostly, though, I’m interested in the cars here.
