Ecological Climber Motocycle?

In an article about “The Most Amazing Inventions” published in a recent issue of Time magazine (Canadian edition, Nov. 21 2005: 34), I've seen a news bit talking about a motocycle of the future that runs on hydrogene canister. That reminded me of the Mospeada Ride Armor seen in the Genesis Climber Mospeada anime (the bike was called Cyclone in the Robotech adaptation). Both bikes slighly look similar and run on hydrogene canister (althought in Robotech, Macek changed that for Protoculture).

The 90-kgs ENV bike is made of aluminum, has a top speed of 80 km/h and can drive up to 160 km on a $4 US 140 g hydrogene canister. The fuel-cell engine is silent and clean. Too bad this bike cannot transform into a power armor!

The ENV bike was created by Intelligent Energy and should be available in 2007 for less than $10,000 US. You can find more details on its web site:

Apple on Kamataki

Apple has recently posted on its web site an article on Kamataki, a Canadian-Japanese movie directed by Claude Gagnon who just received several awards at the Montreal World Film Festival.

Apple often post articles on people who are using their computers and softwares. Director Claude Gagnon used a Power Mac G5 and Final Cut Pro to edit his award-winning movie.

New Blog?

I am experimenting with this new blog.

I'll wait a little to see how well it looks and how easy it is to work with and I might eventually change. We'll see.

Let me know what you think of it.

JET Looking For Candidates

If you are a Japan-lover living in the Montreal area and have dreams of going to Japan, you might be interested to know that the Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme is looking for candidates to become Assistant English Teachers in Japan. No better way to discover Japan than by working there (they say the salary is good, with benefits and they even pay the airplane ticket)!

You can apply online (; click on "Exchange Programs") until November 18, 2005 for a departure in July 2006.
