Applied research specialist SCRA (Charleston, S.C., USA) announced on Sept. 11 that it hs awarded racing yacht manufacturer and America's Cup winner Oracle Team USA an ReXC award. Together with MIT-RCF (Lake City, S.C., USA), SCRA recognized Oracle Team USA for its intelligent design and commercial integration of reclaimed carbon fiber from composites. The award is designed to honor the leaders in innovative reuse of recycled carbon-fiber composite materials.
Oracle Team USA recycled two of its racing yachts, recovering carbon from the boats and repurposing that recycled material into a mold for the next-generation watercraft. The carbon was recovered using a closed-loop process in a geothermal plant and was then shipped to Team Oracle USA's supplier, Core Composites (Bristol, R.I.,USA), for repurposing. The reclaimed material is more economically efficient and is becoming a standardized raw material used to make the molds for composites. The unused, recycled carbon fiber was sent to MIT-RCF.

Still can't figure out what the killer app is that'd make the Apple Watch special, so this would make a much nicer wrist piece if it were as affordable:

Maybe answers the question of whether or not OB2 was 'cut up' or not.

Nice enough piece:

MEET PHILIPPE PRESTI, COACH EXTRAORDINAIRE AND PSYCHOLOGIST TO AMERICA'S CUP ROCK STARS.

The Oracle Racing Team was outat least thats how it appeared when they trailed Emirates Team New Zealand eight races to one during the 34th Americas Cup in San Francisco. Heads were hung low, says Philippe Presti, who had 20 minutes onboard the giant catamaran between races to somehow redirect his team toward a miracle, while Emirates Team New Zealand needed only one more win to take the Cup from the rich and powerful defender.

Eheman has apparently commissioned a '24/7 everything TUSA does is brilliant and must never be questioned' app and a 'disparaging the worthy opposition to the point it is written up as unsportsmanlike in sailing publications' app.

 

Are those the killer apps you hope for - or must you now fear redundancy? :(
