Car Hood Airbags Protect Pedestrians From Bad Drivers
When I think of airbags, I picture them inside the car. But what if we equipped cars with outer airbags to protect pedestrians? That’s exactly what Toyoda Gosei (an offshoot of Toyota) has done with these prototypes: they’ve equipped cars with camera and radar sensors to detect pedestrians and (presumably) activate the outer airbags to protect anyone within range of the car.

A Fire Breathing, Car Killing Robot of Your Very Own

A Fire Breathing, Car Killing Robot of Your Very Own
Remember the Robosaurus? Let me refresh your memory. The gigantic robotic dinosaur looks like a metal, fire-breathing Tyrannosaurus Rex, and might be just about as fierce. Capable of picking up cars, then crushing them with its razor-sharp jaws, I certainly wouldn’t want to run into one in a back alley. So it’s with much glee that I report that the Robosaurus is up for auction.

Instead, it lets out a tiny jolt of electricity when your unsuspecting victim presses the wrong button. The thing that makes me a bit nervous about this gag is that the company who makes them says there’s a laser pointer built into it, but it’s broken out of the box.
