World Takeover Continues: Robotic Gas Pump

For those of us who don’t live in Oregon and have to pump our own gas, isn’t it a pain? You have to find a gas station that you trust, where the prices won’t make you cry, and see that the truck isn’t there stirring up the silt in the tank. Then you have to …

It’s Called a Turn Signal Idiot: Truck Pushes Car for Half a Mile After Crash

Multiple Choice: Who Does Your Automatic Car Hit

Picture this, you’re driving along in your robotic car and the front tire blows. The first thing you do is spill coffee on yourself and drop the Game Boy you’ve been playing with and now you’re probably going to die. You just knew it was going to be one of those days. Whether or not …

Want: Helicopter Truck Hybrid

What is the coolest way to get to work? “By jet pack.” Ok, what’s the second coolest way? “Hoverboard.” Fine.

Glad I’m not There: Baltimore Sinkhole Eats a Street Full of Cars

I hope you’re all having a Feliz Cinco de Mayo and that you’ve inadvertently offended at least one person with your misinterpretation of that this day means in Mexican history. That being said… Sinkholes are Mother Natures way of reminding you that you are nothing more than a tiny, hairy finger food to her. Every …

Want: Self Cleaning Car

I’ll break it to you early. This car doesn’t really clean itself. Especially not on the inside. What it does do is it doesn’t get dirty. So instead of being self-cleaning, it’s actually self not-dirtying. If you follow me. Scientists took one of those new hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings and sprayed it on half of this car and …

Fooom, You Just Blew My Mind: Balloon in a Car Breaks Physics

So physics, amiright? It’s pretty much the most confusing thing in this world. Aside from trying to set up email on an iPad.

Okay, that was Impressive: Formula 1 Pit Stops 1950 and Today

Let me preface this post with this, I have no interest in auto racing. I don’t think it’s a sport and all the best parts I will see on one of those Amazing Crashes shows. That being said, after this video I think I have new respect for one aspect of auto racing, the pit …

Okay, That’s Cool: Landrover’s New “Transparent Bonnet”

Landrover is currently working on a new idea that will display an augmented reality heads up display on the windshield to show the ground under your vehicle and the placement of your wheels. I know, you’re wondering in what case that would ever be useful. It’s like a glass bottom car, who cares what the …
