New smaller version of revolutionary surf generator for urban areas

Australia: Australian company Surf Lakes have created a smaller version of their amazing wave generator suitable for urban areas. The firm behind unique concentric wave making technology has launched a new product model designed to suit reduced-sized footprints and with a view to targeting the beginner to intermediate surfing market. While still producing up to 2000 waves per hour (like its „larger sibling” formerly 5 Waves now known as the Surf Lakes XL model) the new Surf Lakes model requires only two hectares (five acres) of land for construction, therefore has the potential to be built in areas closer to higher population densities where larger land holdings may be limited. This new standard Surf Lakes model will boast waves suited to three levels of surfing ability - beginner, intermediate and advanced - and will be suited for body boards, body surfing, short boarding, longboarding and knee boarding. The Surf Lakes model will also have a lower price tag with a turn key solution being delivered in the order of US$20 million.

Hyundai's new Horizon Studio is developing the 'Transformers'-like elevate walking car

***EXCLUSIVE*** Hyundai isn't just pushing boundaries when it comes to electrified performance, it is going one step further — literally — with the New Horizon Studio's Elevate walking car. This is not the first time we have seen the Hyundai Elevate. In fact, it was first shown at last year's CES event. However, Hyundai has announced its New Horizon Studio, an off-branch that looks to create extreme vehicles for the future. They'll be “building vehicles to traverse off-road terrains with unprecedented mobility through a combination of robotics and wheeled locomotion technology.” A car with robotic legs could tend to someone in a natural disaster where normal vehicles would struggle to reach them.

Dad discovers Harry Potter first edition worth thousands on own book shelf after 21 years

A dad was stunned to discover a book he brought to help his children learn English more than 20 years ago was a „seriously scarce” hardback Harry Potter first edition worth thousands of pounds. A newly-discovered copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J K Rowling, unearthed by Hansons Auctioneers books expert Jim Spencer, is set to be sold at Hansons’ Staffordshire Library Auction on October 13 with an estimate of £20,000 to £30,000. However, it could fetch as much as £50,000 thanks to its good condition and the fact it is one of only 500. It had been sitting on a book shelf for around 21 years when the owner randomly decided to check it - but never in his wildest dreams did he expect it to be a first edition. The retired British expat, who worked in aviation and lives in Luxembourg, said: „A couple of months ago when JKR bounced into the main news I decided to re-read the Potter series. I knew there had been a few first editions sold recently and Hansons was featured on the BBC website so, just to be safe, I checked the criteria. I did not think mine would be valuable as it was certainly not purchased when first published. I was very surprised and shocked to see that it did in fact tick all the boxes, but still could not quite believe it until I checked with Jim Spencer.”
