Graham Warwick on Twitter: "⁦e-Ipanema! @embraer⁩ electric propulsion demonstrator"
Electric motor crop duster is actually an interesting fit, as the crop duster has to maneuver very aggressively at low altitudes so desires fast throttle response and high power on-demand

So the "innovation" here is that this is not a direct wired cockpit data recorder, but rather a well positioned conventional 4K video camera in an armored box, with machine vision algorithms on the analysis computer retrieving cockpit gauge readings. No wiring means cheap to install, but will the FAA really allow this?

Air Race E
New aviation racing event/league, similar to Reno air races and in theme to Formula-E, to promote electric aviation and provide a stage for technology innovation. It would be an interesting take, if it's like RedBull's pylon racing stuff, though somewhat quiet...

Scalewings – Willkommen in der Welt von ScaleWings
Trying to build a hybrid engine block for airplanes, consisting of an electric motor/generator and two independent reciprocating engines (looks like V type). In theory, with a shared shaft, you can knock out one motor and two others should still cover you.

Hybrid geared-fan and piston concept could slash fuel-burn
Like old combined cycle aviation diesel designs, this appears to be either a diamond D-16, or perhaps even a deltic triangular configuration. Difference is LP turbine drives geared turbofan, while pistons drive HP compressor with no HP turbine. Makes for a supercharged diesel turboprop of sorts.
