Car-Parking Tech Could Unearth the Ocean's Hidden Resources

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.

Crazy people put car inside giant inflatable ball, roll it down a hill

This is fun and I don't care it was made by the car manufacturer.

Spotify Will Stream its First Live Gig in April

Here's a money-making idea for music-streaming apps—accept a big chunk of change from corporate sponsors (in this case, Nissan), to stream a live broadcast.
