1hr video (keynote addrs) speaking about the project and their Agile

Won't get 100mpg @ 200kph :-)
uses a 1.8L Honda engine. They reckon, "just change it to electric".
"modular"... Can fit other bodies to frame, change sub-assembles.

Really, really basic. More like a race car.

One design iteration they've open-sourced (for all the 'makers' on-list
wanting to DIY)

Website - includes 'Join the Team' (No idea on how to find people in Aus)

They compare themselves to 'Maker Plane', but not as quite open source.

Reference+pic made to an open-source tractor as well.
