The Project

For Rookies, Spying Is A Dangerous Game

Project Black Hungarian is a spy novel and the first book to showcase a new concept by Capscovil:

Facts on information gathering techniques by NSA & Co, real events and visited locations from WAVE 2013 are woven into a suspense-packed spy story that also takes current global developments into account. Many participants, all pioneers and dyed-in-the wool enthusiasts, served as role models for characters in the spy novel. The described electric vehicle is no new model by Tesla Motors; however, it is based on a real electric car that features a range of 700 kilometers on one charge.


A major focus is on topics around electric vehicles and IT security. A special delicacy, if you will, is that through the eyes of the spy characters, the reader can take a clandestine peek at how today’s intelligence agencies operate while gathering information. Suffice to say, it’s a good thing there are responsible agents working against them.

Hear what WAVE participants and role models for characters think about the project:

Several partners of Capscovil support the project.
