    Just killing some time, during the monsoon and emergence of toads, and crafting some fun stuff about Aptera for my six grandsons.. OK this will take a little explaining for the youngest four…. It segways to nature… Which Aptera mimics….

      Ha! From 43 years of corporate life and too many hours flying working internationally during those years… A way I kept what I think is my sanity.

      Right self? Righty-Oh !????

      I am not sure a career in comedy would have resulted in this heavy service award and a “ That a Boy “ that came with it.????

        Like my first child…. I may have given her more attention, taking many more pictures of her early steps, etc…..

        We saw many “first steps/components” with Noir the 1st Development vehicle in the Alpha series…. I wonder if we we will see the same with the 1st in the Beta ?

        Just say’in They are only young once!????

    Aptera’s newly announced fleet of delivery vans for Oscar Mayer. Aerodynamic with lots of room for solar panels.

      What do your kids/ grandkids think of your interest ( craze?) in Aptera?

    In a recent video, Chris A. mentioned the Aptera body shape (specifically the curved underbelly) was similar to or inspired by the shape marine life assumes to move through the water more easily. I assume he was speaking of a dolphin or a porpoise. It got me to thinking of the wide 88 inch stance of the front wheels and lo and behold, insects called “water striders” popped into my brain:

    “Water striders are able to walk on top of water due to a combination of several factors. Water striders use the high surface tension of water and long, hydrophobic legs to help them stay above water. Gerridae species use this surface tension to their advantage through their highly adapted legs and distributed weight.” Sounds Aptera-like, doesn’t it? Check out the side-by-side comparison below. So once again, Mother Nature got there first;)

    Really looking forward to using my kayak paddles again😋. Sold my kayak 2 years ago and had the Paddles in storage.

    Can’t wait to see how well my Aptera floats 🙃

      LOL. I live close to Lake Erie so I have plenty of watery real estate in which to test the seaworthiness of my Aptera! I understand water striders have little filaments on the legs that contribute to their ability to stay on the surface of the water. Maybe gluing some 70s shag carpeting on the Aptera’s wheel pants would help? JK

        Man why didn’t I think of that😲? I was just going to try overinflating the tires for extra buoyancy.

        Worse comes to worse I can remove the wheel pants for wider tires. Hoping I can get away with a little extra displacement on the surface.

        Ha! Or cover the wheel pants with curb feelers

          I’ve heard, and even repeated the stories about Aptera floating going way back.

          Now you’re talking over-inflating the tires for buoyancy and wondering out loud if it’s spindly appearance will give it the attributes of water strider.

          I say this to say I’ve been thinking about Aptera’s adaptation to water and I think you go all in BIG!

          First, you need to rig a hydrofoil to the rear suspension to balance the monster truck 35-inch tires mounted without pants that gives it a very-effective paddle-wheel setup. Torque vectoring on water would be a new driving experience.

    Finally we get an external gama reveal! I do think an orca themed Aptera with a dorsal fin would be tight (super easy, hardly an inconvenience).
