A few years ago we featured a couple of rear-view mirrors that doubled as monitors and supported Bluetooth integration for hands-free calling. It seems as if not enough morons have died on the road, because the distraction-packed rear-view mirror is back, packed with more distraction than ever before.
I’ve certainly seen my share of homebrew hacks to make remote-controlled cars that can be driven by an iPhone or iPad, but soon you’ll be able to buy one without need for hacking or jailbreaking your iOS device.
Here’s a fun casemod for fans of off-road vehicles. This PC got its humble beginnings in one of those modern IN WIN cases, but once the modder was done with it, the thing turned into a serious off-road (or is that off-desk) truck.
The iRobot 110 FirstLook is built to serve the military and law enforcement. From the looks if things, that’s pretty obvious from the get-go. Usually, you don’t need a robotic spy cam unless you are defusing bombs or conducting surveillance.
If you walk up to a bunch of automotive enthusiasts and start talking about the virtues of a hybrid we might listen if only because we need someone to buy the Prius and Focus Hybrids, so the V8’s we really like can continue on thanks to CAFE.
If Doc Brown even needed to travel to another time with extra clothes and flux capacitors in tow, this is the DeLorean he would use. The DeLorean was the stuff of car lust for me before I discovered Cannonball Run and the Lamborghini in my youth.
Car wrecks aren’t much fun, unless you’re watching them on TV. After the collision is over and you’ve made sure that everyone is alright, there’s something else that goes through your head. Whose fault was it?
Has anyone else had enough of the snow? Possibly one of the most annoying things winter has to offer us is the several layers of snow and ice that accumulates on our cars overnight. An ice scraper has FINALLY been created that will combat this nasty part of winter, and give you a lot less cold work to deal with.
I’m not quite sure how I missed this thing at CES. It must have been shown behind closed doors, or maybe some doors I just didn’t bother to peek through. At least the guys at Mashable shot some footage of this goofy looking two-seater, the GM EN-V.
I know that there are a bunch of geeks out there that strip out the factory audio gear in their new car as soon at its parked in the drive way. I can understand that, the factory stuff tends to not sound that great for the most part, and is often feature limited.
Think back a number of years ago when OnStar first launched. The ability to talk on your cell phone without actually having to hold a cell phone was really novel. Of course, this was back in the days before Bluetooth was as common as it is in cars today.
How smart is your car stereo? I’m happy that my stereo can interface with my iPhone and let me sort through my music efficiently. However, if you want something that does more than just play music and display the time, you might want to have a gander at what Parrot is cooking up with their Asteroid.
I am a major car guy. I lean more towards the Mustang, but I can appreciate sweet cars for other brands like Chevy and the Camaro and the Corvette. I like the looks of the Corvette and once I am 60 and own a few more gold chains, I might buy one.
