Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2010

The Ace Antenna A DR-200 car black box will come in handy for a variety of situations, like spying on your kid who just got his/her driver’s license for instance. It will keep on eye on them and make sure that they aren’t texting or on the phone.

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.

Pyramid shaped Dream Car 123 on eBay

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on June 17th, 2009

Dream Car 123: Pyramid power is backYou might remember the Dream car 123 from a while back. Well, it looks like the father and sons project has hit eBay. You might remember that they were trying to raise money because they needed like $40,000 to build a Mark 2 prototype. So they put the pyramid shaped car on ebay.

Currently it’s at $100, it’s reserve not yet met. What, nobody wants a pyramid car? What’s wrong with you people. Bid. Keep the dream alive. I personally would like to be driving a pyramid by no later than 2015.

Customizable car designs

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2009

Customizable car designsWe customize many things in our lives, whether it’s faceplates for phones or skins for computers. But cars haven’t been all that customizable. At least there’s been no easy way to do it. Sure, in the 80s people were putting bras on their cars. Sickos. And you can see some awesome paint jobs, but those are permanent.

This concept is all about the car’s surface displaying an image. We’re talking your car as a giant display. There would be many templates available for various car models, plus you’ll be able to make some yourself. Your car’s design can be updated wirelessly and even shared on the web. We’ll likely never see it since it would make bank robberies easier for the getaway car.

Touch Screen Audi & BMW cell phones

Touch Screen Audi & BMW cell phones
We loved the Ferrari cell phone and we knew that it was just a matter of time until more cars joined in on the fun. If you’re not the Ferrari type, or just need a new car to use as a cell phone, you might want to try an Audi or even a BMW.

You’re gonna look silly talking on it, that’s a given, but if you’re brave enough to buy it, you’re probably brave enough to use it in public. You can get the Audi in white and the BMW in black. Both sport touch screens, a 1.3 megapixel camera, MP3 player, 3GP and Mp4 support, Bluetooth and 1GB of memory. They’ll cost you $160 each and unlike the real deal are electric powered. Try not to get caught playing with them on your desk.

Rear view GPS mirror
Shenzhen MCD Electronics has rolled out this so far unnamed rear view mirror that shows you more then the cars you’re leaving in the dust. Some features include : GPS navigation system, SD/MMC memory card slot, Stylus pen, LED backlight, 1300mAh Li-Ion battery, Reverse gear sensor, Camera, Bluetooth connectivity.

No word on cost yet, and anyway coming from a Chinese wholesaler, this probably won’t be headed to the US anytime soon officially.

The XO Move concept bike moves us

The XO Move concept bike moves us
It looks like a cross between a transformer and a weird futuristic pod on wheels. The idea is that when parked, it will transform and lock up easily for security. Another great selling point is that it’s adaptable to user needs, capable of carrying one or two people and even has a variable wheel base for more road stability.

Who knows when we’ll see something like this on the roads, but it’s a great idea and more importantly it looks awesome. I’m all for anything that makes the world look more like a Sci-Fi flick. It beats the hell out of a moped.

Smart brake lights designed by students

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on March 27th, 2008

Smart brake lights
The students at Virginia Tech are a pretty intelligent bunch. They’ve come up with a new system for automobile braking lights that will indicate whether you are stopping, or just slowing down, based on how quickly you put your foot down on the brake. The solution for a better brake, as it turns out is really pretty simple.

The concept uses an array of horizontal LED lights. When you start to slow down, the center lights will glow orange and after a pre-programmed time, the side lights will turn red. If you slam on the emergency brake, then all the lights turn red instantly. If we could just get it to flash the finger for those people who stay way too close behind you, I’d be happy. They think these will be easier to add as additional indicators on commercial vehicles at first, but who knows, one day soon all cars may sport these.

Chrysler to offer in-car Internet this year

Chrysler to offer in-car Internet this year
Chrysler, the third largest US automaker, will be the first car company to offer in-car Internet access. Web service will be via subscription from a wireless carrier and dealers will add the feature to existing cars this year. Upcoming fleets will come off the assembly line already Internet-ready.

Get ready to see a rise in accidents as drivers get distracted by their favorite blog and subsequently wake up in the hospital missing a testicle or two, smelling of chicken feathers and looking like they shaved with a bulldozer that morning, while some fat nurse picks the windshield out of their face one fragment at a time.

Porta Jump will jump start your car

Porta Jump will jump start your car
Let’s say you drive around in an old heap and your battery dies. You need a jump, but you don’t have jumper cables and no one wants to help. With the Porta Jump, you won’t need any help at all. It doesn’t require jumper cables or helpful strangers.

Just plug it in your cigarette lighter and wait for the green light to turn on. It’s that easy. Done. You are back in the business of driving around in a heap. As an added bonus, it will recharge while you are driving. This is a good $20 spent. Ideal for damsels in distress as it’s much safer then asking a stranger for help and possibly running into a nutjob.

TeleType GPS unit targets RVers, Hazmat drivers

Posted in GPS by Nino Marchetti on March 10th, 2008

TeleType WorldNavApparently if you are, say, driving a big rig loaded down with some mysterious WMD you probably can’t get onto normal roads with your cargo. TeleType has unveiled therefore the WorldNav Portable GPS solution, available in both 3.5- and 7-inch screen sizes.

TeleType’s WorldNav system isn’t the type of GPS you put into your car unless you carry huge payloads or drive RVs. It is designed to help you choose roads which are best suited for your larger vehicle, allowing you to enter information such as your truck’s height, weight and length. It then takes into account commercial truck restrictions such as bridge heights and clearances, load limits, one-way road designations, left-hand and dangerous turn restrictions, and allowances when offering routing choices for you to drive.

Volvo adds HD Radio to in-car entertainment

Posted in Automotive,HD Radio,Volvo by Nino Marchetti on November 27th, 2007

volvo-hd.jpgHD Radio is looking more and more like it’s here to stay as consumer companies slowly develop products which pick up the radio industry’s answer to satellite radio. The latest of these, and apparently also the first auto manufacturer putting out cars in the United States with this technology, is Volvo.

Volvo said today it will begin offering HD Radio on almost all of its models in fall of 2008. Volvo Cars of North America will specifically be offering factory installed HD Radio receivers as standard and optional equipment in a variety of models, including the S40 T5, V50 T5, C30, C70, S80, V70, XC70 and XC90.
