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

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...

Sadly, this was to be the generator for the XV-24A LightningStrike eVTOL demonstrator, to be paired with a turboshaft engine.

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.

Bell Air Taxi Concept Experience at CES 2018
Pod design for a VTOL air taxi, but absolutely no shots of the pod carrier or propulsion. Likely a multicopter, possibly a tiltrotor.

Interesting move for Cessna, moving the 182 line to Jet A burning aviation turbodiesel powerplants. Is the cost of AvGas for GA civilian use looking bleak? If I remember correctly, AvGas is made at only one refinery in the US in a single batch for the whole year.
