Tesla Model S vs. Twin-Turbo BMW M5

VIDEO: Drifting Remote Control Cars… Way cooler than it sounds

One of the best things about this job is that I have to flip through tech news and watch YouTube videos. This one is pretty slick: You wouldn’t think that someone could pick up remote control car driving skills like this, but it seems they can. Each part of the car is hand picked and [...]

A real go-kart made of legos

As you can see from the video it doesn’t drive fast. In fact, I would say it rolls, rather than drives at all. The build process was documented by the creator Eric Steenstra’s with quite a few photos. It may not be the winner of the next WKA Divisionals, but it’s definitely cool. Wouldn’t you [...]

Volvo SARTRE Driverless Train: 53MPH at 20 feet apart

One of the coolest tech projects out there is Volvo’s SARTRE (Safe Road Trains for the Environment). Volvo gave the project a boost of public awareness, and maybe trust. The 124-mile Spanish test both proved that the cars could stay driverless without posing a threat and upped the ante for what the cars could do: [...]

770-pound car may signal creation of new class of vehicle: The micro-mini

In today’s age of energy-consciousness and high gas prices, we’ve seen innovations in vehicles that range from more efficient engines, to hybrids and all-electrics, to cars that just get smaller and smaller and smaller. I’m talking about cars like the Mini, then the Fiat 500, and then the Smart Car. The trend of smaller vehicles [...]

Starting in 2015 All New Cars Will Have Their Own ‘Black Box’

A new bill that has passed the Senate requires all new cars in the USA to be made with airplane-like black box data recorders starting in 2015.
