There still aren’t that many cars on the road that are using LEDs for headlights though LED taillights are common today. BMW doesn’t care that LED headlights are still uncommon. It has been using them for a while now and is looking to the next thing in automotive lighting.
We here at Technabob aren’t exactly known for our automotive reporting, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like cool cars. Now, Ford is showing off a new car that combines sporty performance with the type of geeky technology we love to write about here.
There have been several versions of Mario Kart racers and most range from okay to pretty decent, but these Super Deluxe versions put the rest to shame. They are larger than the rest and they zip around super fast.
Yes, that is a giant brain in the back of the car you see here. The car is called Braincar (surprising right) and was designed by an artist names Olaf Mooij. The artist drives the car around during the day and the little black thing on top of the brain is a camera that records his travels.
Even though I saw Star Wars Episode I: Phantom Menace a few times, it remains my everyone’s least favorite Star Wars movie. That being said, it had some redeeming qualities, like Darth Maul and the pod racers.
If you’ve got a fancy high-end car, you might already have heated or even air-conditioned seats. But for those of us slumming it without such schmancy features in our rides, there’s now a way to keep our butts cool on even the hottest Summer days.
The Chevy Volt is a cool car if you are into the green vehicle movement. You can charge the batteries in the car up at night for full EV driving for short drives. The cool part is that you don’t have to worry about being stranded because the Volt has a gasoline motor that recharges the batteries when the driving range exceeds the charge.
If you’re a fan of toys like remote controlled cars and smartphones like I am, this BlueDrone toy will catch your attention. It’s like the rolling, wheeled version of the AR.Drone smartphone-controlled flying toy.
I will admit that while I have seen all of the Batman flicks they have all been crazy cheesy until Christian Bale took over in the recent Christopher Nolan-helmed films. Bale and Nolan took Batman and made it much more real and gritty.
I think you can agree with me, people are generally stupid. Put stupid behind the wheel and you get an idiot driver that will text, eat, and read all while doing 80 MPH down the highway in bumper-to-bumper traffic.
There are hobbyists, and then there are people like Nic Case. His obsession with remote-controlled toy cars has led him to create the Schumacher Mi3, a record-breaking toy car that can easily outrace even the one you have in your garage.
I recently got a new puppy (I named her Remy Martin, but of course I’m not going to let her grow up to be an alcoholic, no sirrie!) and I just adore my little furball.
I rarely leave her at home alone, given that she’s still 8 weeks-old and all, but sometimes, there’s just no one left at home to care for the little tyke.
When I saw this amazing X-Wing soapbox derby car, I was really surprised that it can be made for around 75 bucks. You’d expect something like this to cost at least $100. Then again, when we were younger, we didn’t have detailed instructions via Instructables to help us out.
