Thrustme | Lets the small satellite space revolution begin
Uses a gridded ion thruster with solid iodine fuel, but fuel vacuum sublimation may put upper limits on lifetime? Though the size does look interesting for cubesats

Airbus Group and Siemens Sign Long-Term Cooperation Agreement in the Field of Hybrid Electric Propulsion Systems - Siemens Global Website
Siemens has been doing aircraft propulsion electric motors recently, guess they felt it was better to cooperate with the Airbus E-Fan group rather than compete. Wonder how the turboelectric work will shake out though?

Interesting that parking area interior navigation is achieved not by RF or visual beaconing, but using a vehicle's intrinsic object avoidance sensor visual imagery to match with a path given by the parking area's management server via a series of stored photos.

TOSA buses power up for less
Interesting arm mechanism and bus stop overhead design for the flash charger system. Overhead fast recharge is somewhat attractive from an installation standpoint (no road ripping for a embedded inductive charger), but like any flash system, requires high power delivery equipment. Also, paired flywheels sound like a better mechanism for the bus energy storage, and perhaps the bus stop's buffer bank

SOLAR-JET - Zero-carbon jet fuel from sunlight
Apparently they demoed a working solar thermal CO2 cracker to make syngas, a precursor for synthetic fuels. Single chamber, not obvious but previous methods that used a rotating medium are replaced by a single porous ceria medium (so solid state/non-rotating then).
