Leveraging the same auto-follow ProPILOT technology that allows its vehicles to autonomously navigate traffic, Nissan has created a bunch of self-driving chairs that promise to make it a lot easier the next time you’re forced to wait in line.
With all the criticism recently surrounding self-driving cars, you might think it’s a strange move for Nissan to announce some news regarding its own system. Well, it is, but the company is aware.
Drone racing is exciting in its own right, but for spectators the sport still can’t quite match the horsepower and top speeds of auto racing—or can it? Nissan’s GT-R drone, designed and built by Tornado XBlades Racing, can hit a top speed of 115 miles per hour. It can accelerate from zero to sixty in under 1.3 seconds.
Seats, headrests, the entire dashboard—these are just some of the surfaces Nissan is covering with screen displays in their new concept car. We’re already glued to phones and computers already, so why not fry our eyes in front of pixels as car passengers, as well?
Against all odds, the Nissan NV-200 will rule the streets of New York. As of today, the vast majority of cab drivers must buy the so-called Taxi of Tomorrow when they retire their old yellow cabs.
Sometimes the best ideas come from thinking far, far outside the box. That’s what Nissan and Japan’s marine science agency did with their new deep sea rover. To build it, engineers used the same tech as a park-assisting car—which is now helping to give scientists a 360-degree view of the ocean floor.
Australia is filled with poisonous shit that’s constantly trying to kill you. But it’s also filled with the world’s best four-wheel drive vehicles. Yeah, basically everything the little off-road enthusiast inside of you has ever wanted is here. And I just moved here in order to drive it.
NASA and Nissan just announced a five-year partnership in the development of a self-driving car that will not only tackle city streets but also alien planets. Most of the research will take place in Silicon Valley, where both organizations already have research facilities. And believe it or not, NASA wants to learn…
This is fun and I don't care it was made by the car manufacturer. I care that someone was crazy enough to think about putting a freaking car inside one of those giant inflatable balls—called Zorbs, apparently, perhaps the biggest ever made—and then pushed it down a hill. I only wish they put people inside.
In the aftermath of Google's unexpected unveiling of its very own steering wheel-free cutemobile, the internet is dripping again with opinions about self-driving cars. Some say they'll save us. Some say they're doomed. But really, we're all after the same thing: a better way to get around. And right now, self-driving…
Have you ever been hesitant to over-pack a vehicle with luggage or passengers because it would obscure the sightline for your rearview mirror? Nissan's Smart rearview mirror solves that problem by alternately displaying a live video feed from a camera mounted on the back of the vehicle.
An engine this small should, by conventional logic, not be this powerful. But, somehow, it is. And at this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans, Nissan plans to see just how well its under-sized, over-powered hybrid engine prototype handles auto racings's most grueling challenge.
Amazon is well-known for its habit of delivering small items in gigantic packages. But this parcel has to be perhaps the biggest that Bezos & Co. have ever had to ship.
It's easy to see how self-driving cars would benefit society. Traffic jams gone. Accidents reduced. Leisure time increased!
Self-driving cars stand to be the next piece of technology that shakes the foundations of modern life. It's not hard to see why—it's basically science fiction come to life. Since it seems like everybody wants to be involved, news that Mercedes and Nokia were teaming up didn't come as a huge surprise.
Car maker Nissan has joined the burgeoning smartwatch scene, announcing that it’s created a biometric reader to combine personal health stats with those of your… car. So you can track man and machine from the same device.
In the west, we generally buy Star Wars things. In Japan, they use Star Wars to sell things. The Galactic Empire has shilled plenty of Japanese products over the years, and their newest campaign is this shockingly cool commercial series for the Nissan Juke mini-SUV.
If you're a clumsy, phone-dropping fool, you either have a very scratched phone or a very scratched phone case. But this scratch-proof case from Nissan (yes, that Nissan) saves the klutzes of this world from their fumbling.
