I’ve always wondered exactly how modern concept cars are actually designed. In years past, artists went to work with clay and molded the shape of a car by hand. I assumed that most of this process was now done with computers.
Nissan is on its home turf at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, and has used the occasion to unveil some very cool concept cars. One of the coolest cars to turn up at the show is called the IDx Nismo.
The IDx Nismo is also accompanied by a very similar concept car called the IDx Freeflow.
Learning how to sign takes time and a whole lot of effort. Others get the hang of it fairly quickly, while some find that practice makes perfect. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have something like the Sign Language Ring to help you throughout the entire process.
It’s annoying and wasteful at the same time to open your fridge and see spoiling food and produce. Sometimes you just don’t notice when something is spoiling until they’re already past the expiration date. Other times, you’re just too busy to check and find that it’s beyond edible when you do.
I find that receiving too much information while I’m driving can be a major distraction, but I guess that Nissan thinks that Japanese drivers can handle it. They’ve just unveiled their own augmented reality glasses which appear to compete directly with Google Glass.
This awesome sunscreen looks like it would be at home in deep space, but it’s actually designed for the arts district in Dallas, Texas. The sculpture/sunscreen was commissioned by the police to protect us from brain scans by aliens (NOT!).
The touchscreen and app combo of today’s mobile devices makes one gadget act as many. Different apps display different interfaces, and the touchscreen lets you interact with those interfaces in a natural manner. But what if, aside from changing what you can see, your gadget’s display could also change its shape?
Nissan has unveiled a very interesting new concept car that will make its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show. The car is called the BladeGlider and it has a unique three seat design. Nissan says that the BladeGlider is a proposal for the future direction of Nissan electric vehicle development and an exploratory prototype for an upcoming production vehicle.
Some people spend like there’s no tomorrow, even though they might not have the means to pay for all of their purchases. It’s only when they’re neck-deep in debt that they realize the importance of saving.
One of the most important things to keep track of when you’re mountain climbing is the time. More specifically, the time when the sun’s going to set, because visibility gets increasingly limited as the sun goes down.
Are you looking for a rug and coffee table that can channel spirits from the great beyond? If so, check out this conceptual Ouija board rug and coffee table from the mind of Dave Delisle of Dave’s Geek Ideas.
There are a lot of emergency situations that call for the use of rope. Unfortunately, rope pulley systems aren’t the safest way to go sometimes due to external conditions. Like, say, when there are floods or overflowing rivers and people are trapped on one end.
Noise cancelling headphones are nothing new, but wouldn’t it be neat if there was a device that could provide an entire room with silence? You could soundproof your room, but that would be time-consuming and expensive.
Before the invention of timepieces, our ancestors aligned their schedules with the rising and setting of the Sun. Mammoth hunting when the Sun goes up, then chill at Hairy Guy 34’s cave when the Sun goes down.
I tried working as a cashier at a friend’s store once, and I have to say, it was tough. You would think that it’s all fun and games, pointing the scanning gun at the barcodes of items that people have bought, but it’s harder than you think.
