Trapdoor commitments in the SwissPost e-voting shuffle proof
So that SwissPost/Scytl voting system that looked like a hot mess according to various infosec twitter hot takes, turns out to be a hot mess...

Barbecue: Le roi de la grillade, c'est lui - Suisse -
A wheel, a wheel of meat! So this thing apparently perfectly grills 200 sausages an hour automatically, with almost no smoke.

World premiere - TOSA2013 - Flash mobility. Clean city. Smart Bus
EV bus using bus stop flash chargers. Though for flash charging, the power infrastructure for the bus stop and bus are non-trivial for a 15 seconds transfer. You need a buffer system, probably supercaps or flywheels. Interface seems to be a press fit inverted V pantograph rising from the bus, interfacing with a parallel rail DC socket on the underside of the overhead mount, to allow some forward/backward slop in positioning and preventing a DC short by forcing the plug point to correct skew on insertion.

TOSA buses power up for less
Interesting arm mechanism and bus stop overhead design for the flash charger system. Overhead fast recharge is somewhat attractive from an installation standpoint (no road ripping for a embedded inductive charger), but like any flash system, requires high power delivery equipment. Also, paired flywheels sound like a better mechanism for the bus energy storage, and perhaps the bus stop's buffer bank

TrueCrypt - organizing a future
Allegedly the gathering place of of people who intend to continue/fork/rewrite TrueCrypt. Though that would involve a flat out license violation, though the only people with a right to complain are the E4M guys and the real TrueCrypt devs, and the devs are not about to come out of hiding now. Though this might also be a giant honeypot...

Encrypted email, based in Switzerland.
Eh, if they don't make this a host-proof hosting type situation, then it doesn't pass the smell test. Also, browser javascript crypto is asking to get owned, because you are loading external software. Did we also mention unencrypted metadata due to public SMTP, public ledger bitcoin payment providing user tracking, and the Swiss not being so private these days? I can appreciate making integrated PGP more usable to mere mortals, but if this isn't Snowden-grade, it isn't enough.

S3 is partnering with EPFL for launching a space junk retrieval sat. Air launch on an A300, lifting body first stage, rocket second stage, then sat with deorbit capability.

SwissKitePower | a collaborative research and development project
Interesting lightweight approach to a jerking kite style wind power generator. The inflatable wing spar technique should in theory be applicable to flying wind turbine kites too, in theory anyways. Using a jerking system keeps the generator components on the ground, and uses a lighter tether, but nothing is really stopping them from using a carousel type spinning generator on the ground for continuous power output, provided they had multiple kites.

Cleaning up Earth's orbit: A Swiss satellite tackles space debris
Basically a dedicated deorbit bus for dead satellites. Does nothing for the bulk of real space debris, the paint flecks and nuts. But for satellite operators wanting to avoid insurance claims, this might be cheap enough. LEO only, but you really only need fuel for orbit raising and chase, going down you could use an electrodynamic tether as a braking propulsion method. Any LEO sat going up now really should have a deorbit EDT installed.

MOUNT10 · Guarenteed Backup · Swiss Made
Yet another underground nuclear bunker datacenter (?YAUNBD?) that likes to claim it's the swiss fort knox, and offers an online data backup service. Apparently also holds a physical time capsule of digital data formats for archival retrieval/conversion purposes.
