Forget about trying to cram your way onto an already packed subway car when it’s snowy and you need to get to work. Motorcycle maker Christini has applied its expertise in building two-wheel drive bikes to a new snow-thrashing machine called the II-Track Snow Bike system that promises to make wintery commutes actually…
With modern cars becoming more connected, with smarter features, hacking is a real danger. It’s rare, but it’s already happening. We’re not in the “stop your engine” world yet, but it’s easy to break into a car with keyless entry and steal everything inside without the owner ever knowing the car was unlocked.
If you avoid trips to the beach because you don’t want your car getting filled with sand, or won’t buy a real Christmas tree because you don’t want to spend weeks cleaning up pine needles, this giant car condom will keep the inside of your vehicle looking as clean and new as the day it rolled off the lot.
The iconic vehicles of film and TV—your Ecto-1s, your Deloreans, your Batmobiles and what have you—are already pretty cool. Kit them out for the Mad Max post-apocalypse though? Infinitely cooler.
In 2010, DARPA announced it was creating an autonomous, submarine-hunting war machine that would be manned with exactly zero people. Now, that vehicle is ready for action.
Artist Scott Park managed to do the incredible: he drew nearly all the identifiable spaceships and vehicles and animals used in the original Star Wars trilogy and laid them out in one awesome poster you can buy. There’s basically everything you love and know here: the Millennium Falcon, both Death Stars, TIE Fighters,…
The wheel. It’s the greatest invention ever made. Especially when four of ‘em are popped on a Porsche. Here are your tributes to 360 degrees of roundness.
Heading off to sleep with a bed full of plastic pointy space ships is a recipe for an uncomfortable (and unsafe) slumber. So if your kid will only doze off after a space battle, these plush versions of ships from the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens are a better alternative.
I grew up with James Bond. That’s not a huge exaggeration. I remember proudly telling my babysitter I’d been watching the films for years. My favorite parts: the chase scenes. So when I went to London last month and discovered Bond in Motion, a museum exhibit filled with actual Bond vehicles, I drooled a bit. And then…
One of the things that sets Star Wars apart from all of the other space operas that have come and gone are its wonderful ships and vehicles. The iconic X-wing is easily as recognizable as Darth Vader is, so of course The Force Awakens is going to usher in a whole hanger full of new rides.
Cops on Segways are so 1993 and no one takes them seriously. That’s why San Francisco now has cops on quadskis, the ATV that turns into a jet ski that turns whoever’s riding it into a kind of poor man’s James Bond. And at least one of them is being used to patrol the San Francisco Bay during baseball games.
Driving off-road doesn’t have to be scary. Yet most people that spend serious cash on 4WDs never even put them in low range, much less take them off the pavement. Let’s try to fix that with a few basic skills everyone can master.
Cars, motorcycles, trucks, airplanes, mopeds, tanks, fighter jets, ships, trains, big rigs and so on. We’ve figured out that those are the vehicles that work out best for our purposes and our world and our needs. But we had a lot of missteps and weird ass experimental vehicles along the way. Here are 8 crazy vehicles…
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.
The new Mad Max movie is going to be filled with such crazy explosions and gnarly stunts that your eyes will pop but that’s just the beauty of being able to sprinkle movie effects onto a summer blockbuster. Not all of that badassery will be real. What is real is this awesome Mad Max Peacemaker car, this thing just…
NASA’s new Modular Robotic Vehicle prototype is a new type of rover developed in conjunction with the car industry—and it looks like a hell of a lot of fun to drive, on this planet or any other.
Before autonomous smart cars hit the roads, we're going to be seeing regular cars upgraded with the smarter technologies that will eventually make self-driving vehicles possible. In the UK Ford is introducing what it calls Intelligent Speed Limiter technology on its new S-MAX that enhances the vehicle's cruise control…
This week, engineers working on the Bloodhound Supersonic Car installed its EJ200 jet engine into the chassis for the first time. Good news: it fits. Bad news: they now have to install kilometers of cabling into the small gaps that are left. [Bloodhound Project]
