Countless states have laws preventing you from using a smartphone while driving, but trying to find a button on an in-dash navigation system is just as distracting. To remedy this, Bosch has created an automotive touch screen with buttons that feel real so they’re easy to find without taking your eyes off the road.
Bosch has announced that it’s been working on a system that can detect and help avoid pedestrians that step out in front of cars, and it hopes to fit it to production vehicles as soon as 2018.
Companies like Google are racing ahead on driverless cars development, and technovisionary Elon Musk claims one day manual driving will be illegal. But after watching the concept video for a Bosch driverless car above, I’m curious if what we want isn’t a car that’s part driverless and part old-fashioned.
Close to a decade ago a clever inventor came up with a safety feature for power tools that could detect when a blade made contact with human flesh and instantly retract it to prevent injury. Unfortunately, it destroyed the tool in the process.
We've known for months now that Bosch would be the first power tool company to offer inductive batteries and wireless charging technology. Well, now it's actually up for offer. The first of Bosch's wireless chargers and batteries are finally for sale online. And more are on the way!
Mixing and kneading dough for bread can be a back-breaking process. It's a chore best left to a grandparent who's been doing it all their life—or a machine like Bosch's new MaxxiMUM mixer, which actually looks like a robotic arm from an automotive factory that was laid off but has since found other work.
Despite being small enough to fit in your pocket, a tape measure is one of those tools that is almost impossible to use by yourself. Laser measuring devices are far easier to wrangle if you don't have an assistant—even with just one hand—but it's taken decades for a company like Bosch to finally create a version…
It's almost impossible to think of a time when you had to wrangle a long cord while working with power tools. But as convenient as cordless tools are, they're useless if their batteries are dead. So this fall, Bosch will be introducing batteries with inductive charging that simply need to be placed on a base station…
A new television series set in Los Angeles just got the green light—but don't look for it on NBC, AMC, or even HBO. No, Bosch—an hourlong drama about a Los Angeles homicide detective—will stream to TV sets, laptops, and mobile devices via Amazon Prime.
How many times have you had to pass up a spot in a crowded parking lot because there wasn't enough room to squeeze your car in and get your doors open? In 2015 Bosch will debut its Automatic Parking Assistant which will allow vehicles to automatically pull into a tight parking spot with or without the driver at the…
Sure, that laser rangefinder made short work of measuring every dimension in that room you plan to renovate. It's just too bad you jotted all those measurements down on the back of an old receipt that promptly went missing. That's why Bosch has given its new GLM 100 C laser rangefinder Bluetooth capabilities and an…
The microwave is an appliance without glory. You throw in your bag of un-popped kernels, some leftover Chinese food, whatever. Your slop is reanimated by The Power of the Atom, and you save time. But this microwave is different.
A cordless drill used to be a poor choice as a power tool—too heavy to take up a ladder and too weak to do the job. Then batteries got better, drills got smaller, and everything got cheaper. Cordless went from just a decent alternate to a viable replacement.
You know what your darling wrencher truly wants this year: gold-plated O2 sensors and diamond-encrusted CV boots. But since it's always best to surprise, buy them one of these tools for the home mechanic instead.
It's not even lunchtime yet, but already I'm dreaming of that first glass of vino collapso. What? It's practically the holidays. Let me get on with my boozehound ways—preferably with this Bosch power drill-corkscrew-hybrid.
He smells of sawdust and never needs sandpaper because his palms are so rough. He builds a Mission-style TV stand instead of hitting Ikea. And he's the guy who always helps you move. You owe him something rad this holiday.
Mercedes has announced plans to implement what they call a Splitview Command display in new S-Class models—a means for the passenger and driver to see different images on the same surface.
What the heck is the deal with this Bosch Power Box iPod dock? Deflecting onlookers from its intended purpose, this contraption looks like it could be used to trigger 50s-era nuclear weapons rather than just power and protect a stoopid iPod. But then, we're fed up with iPods anyway, so anything that would vaporize…
