Tesla Charges Up New Model X SUV with Impressive Performance, Falcon-Wing Doors

Tesla Charges Up New Model X SUV with Impressive Performance, Falcon-Wing Doors
I’ll admit that generally I’m not a big fan of most green vehicles such as hybrids or EVs. I don’t have anything against the technology or saving the environment, I just think most of the green vehicles out there are butt-ugly.

BMW Highly-Automated Car Barely Needs You

BMW Highly-Automated Car Barely Needs You
It never ceases to amaze me when I drive somewhere just how many idiot drivers I see reading, texting, and doing anything other than keeping their eyes on the road. The government is trying to combat distracted drivers but what they really need to be doing is combating idiots.

Scrubbing Wiper Blade Gets the Gunk off Your Windshield

Scrubbing Wiper Blade Gets the Gunk off Your Windshield
It’s not the bird droppings and random, muddy-looking gunk on the windshield that’s annoying. What’s annoying is when you make the mistake of using your windshield wipers to clean it up–and all you get is one huge mess in the end.

BASF and Philips Whip Up Clear OLED Light/Solar Panel for Cars

BASF and Philips Whip Up Clear OLED Light/Solar Panel for Cars
I would love one day for solar panels to be efficient enough that they could power electric vehicles, and maybe save me some money on my house electric bill in the Texas summer heat with solar power.

Car with Dual Power Windows: Now it’s Tinted, Now it’s Not

Car with Dual Power Windows: Now it’s Tinted, Now it’s Not
I don’t often post about automotive technology, hacks or mods because I don’t know a lot about cars, but this one is too neat to pass up: a car with two sets of front windows, a pair that’s transparent and another pair that’s tinted.

LEGO Fifth Element Taxi, Perfect for Those With No Points on their License

LEGO Fifth Element Taxi, Perfect for Those With No Points on their License
I really liked the flick The Fifth Element, and have seen the movie several times. One of the things I remember most about the movie was Bruce Willis driving that flying taxi like a mad man.

Car Compass: Helps Dudes Find Their Cars

Car Compass: Helps Dudes Find Their Cars
So you park your car, go to the mall/watch a movie/eat at the restaurant, and have a generally good time. Then you go back to the parking lot and realize, with a sinking feeling, that you’ve forgotten where you’ve parked your ride.

Carcapsule: The Car in the Plastic Bubble

Carcapsule: The Car in the Plastic Bubble
You know how geeks protect their action figures with those clear protective cases? The Carcapsule is like that, but for cars. It’s a plastic bubble that you put your classic car in to protect it from the ravages of time.

Dual Lens Camera DVR Records Your Comings and Goings

Dual Lens Camera DVR Records Your Comings and Goings
Cameras in vehicles have started to catch on in parts of the world as a way of documenting traffic accidents. While this particular camera is designed for just that purpose, I could see it being used to stitch together some other interesting video content as well.

LanZilla RC Casemod: Off-Road Computing

LanZilla RC Casemod: Off-Road Computing
Having a moveable computer case won’t come in handy in daily use, but it would save you a lot of time and back pain when you do need to move or transport it. Which is why I envy Stephen Popa – not only does his PC case have wheels, it’s actually a remote controlled car, so he can have fun with it even when the PC is turned off.

Porsche 996 TV Entertainment Center, for Those Who Want a Third of a Porsche

Porsche 996 TV Entertainment Center, for Those Who Want a Third of a Porsche
Looks like Carlsen has done it again. He has crashed his Porsche into his living room wall. May as well use the thing as an entertainment center now. Well, at least this butt end of a 2005 Porsche 996 will hold a 42″ flat panel TV.

Fully Functioning Batmobile Replica Lets You Ride Home In Style

Fully Functioning Batmobile Replica Lets You Ride Home In Style
This officially-licensed 1966 Batmobile replica isn’t as destructive as the 21st century Batman’s Tumbler, but at least you can drive this one on the streets. Imagine riding this home for the holidays this year. You’ll be a smash, but only if you live some place warm because even if it has a flamethrower, you’ll get a bit cold and wet if you’re not careful enough.

Flash Rods Mercedes SLS AMG Hard Drive is Way Cheaper Than the Real Car

Flash Rods Mercedes SLS AMG Hard Drive is Way Cheaper Than the Real Car
I think one of the coolest cars to ever roll out of a manufacturing plant anywhere is the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. This car has power and loads of style to set it apart from the normal Mercedes cars.

Find My Car Smart Helps You Find Your Car, Stupid

Find My Car Smart Helps You Find Your Car, Stupid
I used to get so mad at people I was with who would park their car and then forget where they parked. But I can understand it in some instances. I once lost my car at a NHRA national’s event.

Mitsubishi EMIRAI Dashboard: When Can I Have it in My Car?

Mitsubishi EMIRAI Dashboard: When Can I Have it in My Car?
I’m pretty excited about the design of Mitsubishi’s futuristic EMIRAI dashboard concept. Although I have a few problems with the way that they designed the new steering wheel – for me a steering wheel needs to be an oval or a complete circle – the rest of the design looks pretty cool.

Rinspeed Dock + Go Makes Mini-Cars More Useful

Rinspeed Dock + Go Makes Mini-Cars More Useful
For a moment, I thought that this dock for your super mini-car would make it into a mini-pickup, but that’s not the case. Once attached, the resulting car looks kind of cool, albeit strange and wrong in so many ways.
