Considering that cameras are just about everywhere to keep us accountable and hopefully not to begin a Big Brother society. I figure that most people might want a car on their dashboard to record the road, because you might get in an accident and you could use the footage. This is what the CDR 825E from Cobra Electronics is made for. The CDR 825E has an extra wide 140 … [Read more...] about The CDR 825 (825E) Drive HD Dash Cam from Cobra Electronics
I remember a friend of mine told me that the term "Post Modern" doesn't really make sense. In fact, to apply the term "modernism" implies that this is the last art movement period, or it is going to look pretty stupid that we called it that in the future. Yet by saying "Post Modern" implies that we are now living in the future, or something. Still, this doesn't mean that … [Read more...] about Post Modern Skateboard is a new way to thrash
Okay, who wants a hovering bike? Everyone in the entire world should have their hand raised. Surely all of us have longed for the days of personal hovering technology since before the first Star Wars movie. Just to let you know, this isn't some concept vehicle that I often report on. This Aero-X by Aerofex (don't get those mixed up) is real, and it could be around as … [Read more...] about Aero-X hoverbike from Aerofex
I believe that man has been attempting to imitate the birds for years. First with the hot air balloon, then the airplane, and now the First Flying Bicycle. Available on the famed Hammacher Schlemmer catalog, it is sadly not one where you pump the pedals and into the air you go. It is actually an ultralight para-trike aircraft, with a para-wing to provide lift. It has "a … [Read more...] about First Flying Bicycle, now available on Hammacher Schlemmer
I think we all know that oil reserves are just going to go dry, and it really is just a matter of time. I'm not certain how long our fossil fuels will last, but it is possible to have very large gas mileages. Apparently, Shell has Eco-marathon Americas competition, which allows student teams to race against each other with energy-efficient vehicles that they build. This … [Read more...] about Gas mileage: Just give us more already!
In case you haven't realized it, pretty much everything that I have done for the month of January is related to CES and everyone that I talked to afterwards, and this probably won't change in this year. In other words, I haven't really been probing my usual tech blogs for source material, but I have been trying more hands-on approaches with tech. Therefore, I have been … [Read more...] about RYNO Cycle is a Segway with one wheel
Well, I seem to have two things that attract me to this subject matter. First, it is from Swann, and I have had the opportunity to review two of their products very recent. The first was the SwannEye HD and the Doorphone Video Intercom. Then there was announcement that Amazon made the other day that drones could be delivering your stuff. Swann has made this Quad Starship … [Read more...] about Swann Quad Starship
Every year, the L.A. Auto Show loves to show off some pretty awesome vehicles, and a lot of them are concept. Most of these concept cars never see the light of a mass-manufacturing, made simply because it can be made. This is the Mobiliant, which is a winning design by China's SAIC. It has the ability to literally drive up the wall. Oh yeah. I am seriously having … [Read more...] about Mobiliant is a car that can literally climb walls
Toyota has recently unveiled the FV2, and it is one of those concept cars that will hopefully see the light of day. I'm not certain if I should be calling the Toyota FV2 a "car", but in its defense, it does have four wheels. I suppose that I could define it as a Segway times two, for its controls are very similar. You have to actually stand at the center and lean in the … [Read more...] about The Toyota FV2 concept car
For a while, Heathrow Airport in London has been using these ULTra PRT transport pod in order to take travelers from place to place. I have never been there, but it seems rather futuristic. The next step is clearly driverless cars on the road. Apparently, the city of Milton Keynes wants to create a lot of these podcars to transport the 200,000 citizens around. It may be … [Read more...] about Driverless Podcars coming to England?
I have seen some interesting set-ups for vehicles of the future, and this particular one is quite interesting for a society that insists on one person-per-car, no matter how inefficient it may be for society as a whole. This is the n-Three, and it has a single built-in electric engine that only powers the rear wheel. The steering is done with the two front wheels, and the … [Read more...] about nThree is the motorized trike of the future
Just to let you know, I don't exactly get inspiration for articles with a fax by God. I will be honest when I say that most of the time, I just talk about whatever the heck seems interesting when I read it. In this case, I saw something that I thought looked interesting, and so I did a search on "Atlas". I found my last two articles had "Atlas" in the title, so I just sort … [Read more...] about Atlas human powered helicopter breaks an aviation record
I think we are seeing a gradual turning away from gas-powered cars, but it may take years before we end our addiction to "Big Oil". I have seen enough hybrid and electric cars to prove that one. A group of students in the Netherlands have come up with another Eco-efficient solution, solar power. This isn't just some solar-powered vehicle made for one person, but this is … [Read more...] about Solar car developed by students of the Netherlands
I always like to see any innovations in transportation, and I will have to say this one created by Gustavo Brenck is very cool. As you can see, it is a foldable kick scooter integrated in a nylon backpack. Now, you might be wondering why in the world someone would make this when you can just wear a backpack and go on a scooter? I'm not certain. Perhaps putting the … [Read more...] about Backpack can transform into a scooter
There is apparently a group of Czech designers known as Technodat that has been working on a flying bike. That's right, a flying bike. This group wanted to have this flying bike, or FBike, done by August. Yes, they actually call it a FBike, and I have no idea how to pronounce this, and yes, it should have been done by now. You can watch the video above and you will see … [Read more...] about Czech group Technodat creates a flying bike
