Citymapper, a popular app used to navigate around London, is trialling a “smart bus” for two days around the city.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, the app’s CMX1 green bus will run on “the Circulator,” described as an “experimental popup route” in central London, starting at Southwark through Blackfriars Bridge, Somerset House and South Bank.

The “smartbuses” have a smart display that tells you where you are and what’s coming next. They also have USB charging for smartphones and tracking software for real-time integration with the app, which can count passengers, for example. They’re also smaller than regular buses.  Read more…

Radinn’s second-gen electric wakeboard is faster and cheaper

Nearly three years after we first saw Radinn's prototype electric wakeboard, the Swedish outfit is back with a redesigned version. The G2X will be on display at the Boot Düsseldorf show this week, showing off its capabilities like a swappable battery so owners don't have to wait for a two-hour charge between 25-minute rides. Those rides will be even more exciting though, since it's capable of 36 mph, up from 28 on the Wakejet Cruise. Better yet, the G2X is cheaper than its predecessor, with a price (before accessories like an add-on foil, "radical" upgrade to max out its top speed or additional battery packs) of 9,900 euros, or about $12,101 US.

It's going on sale later this year, however, there will be plenty of competition. E-Surfer Magazine lists 17 different models in the segment, and there will be new hardware shown at the Boot show from Lampuga and Elektrisches Jet Surfboard.
