Apple is allegedly planning to revolutionize the car industry just as it did with music, phones, tablets, high-end designer computers, and, possibly, with watches and TVs. Remember that van we showed you the other day, with the laser mapping contraption on top that turned out to be rented by Apple? Well, it might be a much more taking-on-Tesla project than improving-Apple-Maps-with-Street-View-style-shots endeavor as initially thought. Also, the work might really be on a van of sorts, the sources revealed.That mysterious car project is called "Titan," tip insiders, and already has the green light by Apple's CEO Tim Cook to be staffed with a thousand-strong army of engineers, designers, and the like. With this kind of manpower, Titan is definitely not a one-off whim for a few prototypes of something that will be left gathering dust in the basement, as Apple often does, but rather a deliberate push to enter a new market. Of course, Apple has its CarPlay vehicle infotainment ecosystem … [Read more...] about Who killed the electric car? Not Apple, as it’s working on a ‘Titan’ one

I will love to see apple making carbon less cars. Can we expect samsung as well to work on electric cars soon? posted on 15 Feb 2015, 04:27 2 2. vincelongman (Posts: 5283; Member since: 10 Feb 2013) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renault_Samsung_Motors posted on 15 Feb 2015, 04:40 2 3. Felix_Gatto (Posts: 942; Member since: 03 Jul 2013) Apple copied Renault, not Samsung. Renault owns that company. 15. Macready (Posts: 1637; Member since: 08 Dec 2014) Samsung started the company 21 years ago and while it sold the majority of shares off, it still partially owns (Renault) Samsung Motors. 24. nctx77 (Posts: 2540; Member since: 03 Sep 2013) Apple copied neither as renault is a typical combustion engine car and has nothing to do with electric car tech. Also, how do you tie Apple to this company when … [Read more...] about Comments for : Who killed the electric car? Not Apple, as it’s working on a ‘Titan’ one
The “Project Titan” initiative, under which Apple is supposedly working on a driverless car, may actually have a much larger scale than previously thought. According to information received by Business Insider, Cupertino may be looking not just at autonomous cars, but at a more comprehensive transportation platform based on such.“something bigger than a car”, considering both the recent trends in the transportation industry and Cupertino’s investments. According to analysts’ most rough estimates, the global volume of this market is between $5 and $15 trillion, which is several times more than the volume of the IT sector. Besides, Apple is already investing in what could be key areas of development for the cars of the future, such as entertainment, communications and software. So it would be quite natural for the company to look for further growth opportunities in the transportation industry. And Cupertino has all the means, including financial ones, … [Read more...] about Apple is working on something more than a car under its “Project Titan” initiative?

Finalflash (Posts: 3712; Member since: 23 Jul 2013) If it is even worth having, because it probably isn't a car. The fact is that it isn't "more" than a car, it is now "less" car than it used to be. The project was in disarray the last anyone with any insight heard about it with engineers being removed all over the place. Now it is probably whatever is left of the tech they came away with being used for whatever they can. Kind of like Blizzard's project "Titan" which eventually became Overwatch after it failed. posted on 15 May 2017, 07:09 4 5. matix73 (Posts: 25; Member since: 10 Apr 2017) You forgot posted on 15 May 2017, 08:53 0 … [Read more...] about Comments for : Apple is working on something more than a car under its “Project Titan” initiative?
You could fly on Titan, just by flapping your arms. So what are we waiting for? Let's move to Saturn's largest moon! The solar system’s second-largest moon has an atmosphere, it has weather, seasons, it has water and lakes, there are plentiful energy resources and, well, there's that flying thing. Living in 14% gravity would be fun. What's not to like? "It's the most Earth-like place in the solar system," says Amanda Hendrix, a planetary scientist who worked for 12 years at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and co-wrote the recent book Beyond Earth: Our Path To A New Home In The Planets."The number one reason why Titan is exciting is that it has an atmosphere that provides one and a half times the surface pressure that we feel on Earth – there's no other moon or planet in the solar system that gives us such a nice atmosphere," says Hendrix. What that means is that humans wouldn't have to wear pressure suits like on our Moon, or on Mars. Scientists also … [Read more...] about The tech we need to build a colony on Titan
