KleenSpeed Technologies today announced Scrambls as the primary 2012 sponsor of its EV-X11 Electric Race Car.
Scrambls is a free social media privacy service that lets you retain complete control over content you post online and who can access it.
KleenSpeed is a developer of New Energy technology intellectual property and a member of the NASA Ames Research Center.
The 2012 EV-X11 electric race car will debut at ReFuel 2012, July 1 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, in Monterey, Calif. ReFuel is described as the preeminent annual event showcasing the state of the art in electric vehicles.
KleenSpeed's EV-X11 shattered the ReFuel Electric Vehicle lap record on the Mazda Raceway circuit last year, its sponsors say, affirming it as the fastest electric track race car in the world. The lap of 1:38:9 broke the 2010 record of 1:42.5, also set by KleenSpeed in its prior generation car.
According to Scrambls, its product is a simple, yet secure Web browser plug-in that empowers users to control and protect messages they post to the web and social networking sites. Scrambls encodes selected content with the flip of a switch -- from e-mails and Tweets to posts on any Web site. You choose who may read your social network posts, selecting individuals or sharing with a group. Friends just need to add scrambls to their own browser to read your messages normally, while those not approved can only see a "scramble" of encoded text and symbols. Advanced scrambls control options include the ability to retract (delete) messages after publishing, or choose when a post will appear or expire. Scrambls is free for consumer use.
KleenSpeed says the EV-X11 is a symbol of its vision for a smart and clean energy future, as well as a vital R&D tool for developing advanced electric technologies.
