Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on October 28th, 2009

2010 Cosmos 4RW V8 Muscle Bike When a motorcycle has four wheels, is it even a motorcycle anymore? We have no idea. This beast has left us dazed and confused, but mostly we just can’t stop staring. This thing looks like it kicks some serious ass.

What you are looking at is the 2010 Cosmos 4RW V8 Muscle Bike. Those wheels are 17-inchers and all four support a 350 cubic inch engine with 350 horsepower. It looks like it came straight out of a Sci-Fi flick.

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on October 13th, 2009

Start your car with your iPhoneCar keys are so last century. They’re only good for scratching other people’s cars out of revenge or scratching instant lottery tickets. We have the iPhone, who needs keys? More cars are starting with just the push of a button these days anyway. More will follow. Viper is creating a keyless future with their new iPhone app that unlocks and starts your car for you.

The app is free and connects to a Viper SmartStart hardware module inside of your car, letting you start your car, get the heat going, unlock doors or turn the alarm on or off. Also, you don’t need to be physically near your car to do those things since it works using cell networks.

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on October 11th, 2009

Red Light Camera Detector could save you from ticketsThis device may have the look of a child’s toy, but it can come in very handy. At any given intersection it will let you know if its being monitored by a red light camera or a speed trap. Like I said, very handy. The 1.6″ OLED display shows your car’s current location and alerts you to presence of a red light camera based upon an internal database of 6,000 red light and speed camera locations.

It will notify you using either audio or visual alerts. The database can even be updated by connecting it to your computer and downloading them for free for a year. After that it’s $19.95 per month.

Car Cam Voyager is a Black Box for your car

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on October 4th, 2009

Car Cam Voyager is a Black Box for your carIt would be pretty handy to have a black box for your car, just like airplanes have. That way if you got into an accident, saw a crime being committed or got beaten up by a cop for no good reason, you would have a record of the event.

That’s basically what the Car Cam Voyager does. It acts like a black box. It’s the first video camera for the car that allows you to record what is happening in real time while you’re driving. The device can display captured video on the 2-inch 320×240 screen and can record up to 48 hours of video on the road to a 32GB microSD card.

LED Jumper Cables from the future

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on September 20th, 2009

LED Jumper Cables from the futureMost of us have had trouble with a dead battery in our car. It usually happens at the worst possible times. It might be dark or snowing, or raining, or all of the above. Well with these jumper cables, the dark won’t be a problem.

That’s because they have LED lights built in. It’s such a simple solution, we wonder why we haven’t seen more like this. And since every clamp has a light built into it, you won’t have any problems matching the positive and negative. The lights kick on whenever you squeeze the clamps open.

Laptop Steering Wheel Table

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on September 1st, 2009

Laptop Steering Wheel Table is a bad ideaUsing your laptop while driving a car is pretty difficult and not very safe for you or your victims. Now this Laptop table for your steering wheel is obviously not meant to be used while driving, but there are always a few idiots out there who will do it. As for those morons, we can only hope that they crash into a tree as they twitter about typing while behind the wheel.

Idiots aside, this is actually great for the traveling businessperson who always has to stay connected. It’s also handy for parking your food and eating in the car. Hell, if you had to you could probably change a kids diaper on this thing instead of driving to a restaurant rest room. So for $23 it’s pretty useful as long as you aren’t an idiot.

Asia’s largest race car made from bread

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on August 30th, 2009

Asia’s largest race car made from breadWe all know that if you want to get into the racing game, it takes a lot of cash. Scratch. Benjamins. Dough. Bread. Oh yes, it takes a lot of bread. Actual bread made by bakers in this case. A bunch of crazy chefs got together and created a Formula One racing car with 22 different types of bread.

The Culinary Executive Chef from the Royal Plaza On Scotts in Singapore led a team of six chefs, two artists, two technicians, two culinary staff members and five volunteers to create this bread-winner. They call ‘Asia’s Largest Race Car Made From Bread’. It took 33 pounds of yeast alone, 14 liters of water, 4.4 pounds of salt and around three gallons of varnish.

The Beer Trike

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on August 26th, 2009

The Beer TrikeForget drunk driving. The Beer Trike drives your drinks. It is essentially a mobile pub. And perhaps one of mankind’s finest inventions. It could be as big as the ice cream truck, only for adults. The beer trike was built for the British Biker Build-Off.

You have your usual bike along with a sidecar, and a completely operational mobile bar. It also sports air suspension on all three wheels. The only concern is how to keep all of that beer cold. If I could, I would buy this and travel the country filling mugs everywhere and becoming a legend.

Land Meter dashboard inclinometer from UxSightUxSight has a new device called the Land Meter that will let you know exactly how your car or truck is tilting. It gets power straight from your cigarette lighter and the Land Meter sits on your dashboard so that you will always know what kind of incline you are on.

The Land Meter measures just 124mm x 57mm x 80mm and sticks to your dashboard using a self-adhesive bottom, so it won’t off on a steep incline. It costs £12 and is probably great for off-roaders.
