Rap artists’ new love for Teslas is a good thing for the planet

Whether you like or not, celebrities can have a major influence on what the public takes a liking to. That’s why it’s good news that famous hip-hop artists like Kanye West are buying and bringing publicity to Teslas. Hip-hop artists have long been impressed by Ferraris, Benzes, and other outrageously expensive cars, but now we’re seeing more artists showing off their eco-friendly Tesla.

New wireless charging systems represent a bright future for electric cars

Electric plugs aren’t the only way to charge electric cars. In fact, young engineers have come up with wireless charging panels that can provide power to an electric car parked above it. Even if there are nearly six inches of empty space between the charger and the car, power can be transmitted through an electromagnetic field. The implications of such a charger are as huge as suburban driveways, public spaces, parking lots, and interstate rest stops could all be tricked out with wireless ports to serve the tens of millions of electric cars that are expected to hit the roads…
