Review: The 2016 Toyota Prius Is a Marvel of Modern Engineering
Toyota recently invited me out to southern California to take some time getting to know the new 2016 Prius. While the Prius is known for its exceptional fuel economy and eco-consciousness, it doesn’t exactly have a reputation for being a fun or dynamic car.

Some new cars have a built-in Wi-Fi connection over cellular data. But unless you’re willing to buy an entire car just for that feature, you’re better off with Alcatel Onetouch’s upcoming 4G Car WiFi mobile hotspot, which plugs into your car’s cigarette lighter.

DM Blade Supercar has 3D Printed Chassis: The Arduino of Cars
Last year we saw Local Motors’ Strati, a compact car with a 3D printed body, seats, windshield and support structures. Divergent Microfactories’ (DM) Blade prototype supercar looks much better – and is apparently much more powerful – than the Strati, but DM’s pride and joy is what’s inside the car.

As soon as my daughter had enough coordination to operate a Power Wheels car, I bought her a sweet pink Mustang. She loved that thing and drove the crap out of it. She drove the thing off curbs, into kids, cars, houses, dogs, bikes, and anything else that didn’t get out of her way.
