Creating the world’s most rugged Bluetooth speaker was no easy task, and in order to do so we had to think outside the box to find materials that would let you to take your music anywhere. Say hello to neodymium – this rare Earth element packs a punch and allowed us to build a huge speaker inside a small space. The high powered neodymium magnets for the tweeters and woofers act as a type of protection in the form of a voice coil – a hollow cylinder that moves up and down in relation to the neodymium magnet. From there, the magnetic ferrofluid in the tweeters creates a physical connection between the speaker and the permanent neodymium magnet and surrounding structure act as a heat sink. Additionally, it also provides a slight damping effect on the voice coil to minimize unwanted acoustic resonance.
Individual profile reports graphically display an individual’s level of fitness on seven dimensions of Self-Reflection and Empathy. This is followed by a brief narrative description of what is measured and the implications for an individual in work relationships. Individuals are encouraged to consider how this information fits with their own experience and to interpret this in terms of their life experience in different situations. The information provides a valuable tool for noticing and practicing self-awareness. It is also useful for engaging family members, colleagues, and friends in a discussion on the degree to which this data fits their experience of them. The profile summary can be used as a rich resource for further exploration.
The battery, which has a total capacity of over 70 kWh, is charged quickly and efficiently thanks to state-of-the-art charging technologies. The EQ show car can be charged at home by means of induction or a wallbox and is suitable for fast charging with the combined charging system (CCS). The charging capacity currently ranges from 50 kW to sometimes 150 kW. The goal is for the European charging standard to reach up to 300 kW in the medium to long term. This would mean that it would take ten minutes to recharge sufficient electricity for 100 km.
It is also helpful for the driver to receive notifications of nearby charging points. As soon as the EQ notices that it will not be able to reach its destination with the available battery power, it informs the driver about suitable charging options by displaying them on the navigation map, which has a highly detailed 3D city view.
