    Porsche Passport Program: Like Netflix for Porsches

    Netflix for _____ is a common-enough shorthand for startups and other tech ventures these days, but I think Porsche has pretty much put the concept to bed with their latest project. It’s called the Porsche Passport Program, and believe it or not it’s more or less Netflix for Porsches. The Porsche Passport Program is currently […]

    Spa Car: Inventor Colin Furze Made a Driveable Hot Tub

    YouTube inventor Colin Furze (that’s an inventor who puts his inventions on YouTube, not a guy who invented YouTube) has been called a “mad scientist” by the media, but hopefully he will never decide to use his abilities for evil.

    Imagine this: Instead of owning a car, you only own a steering wheel. At the present, such a device would be more or less useless, unless you’re a toddler who enjoys pretending to drive and making “vroom vroom” sounds. But in the future, a smart steering wheel might be what you own instead of a […]

    Life Size LEGO Ferrari SF70H: Watch it Built in Timelapse (Video)

    One of the advantages to working at LEGO is sometimes you get to build a life size supercar replica completely out of LEGO building bricks (employees at Hostess never get to do this with their products, I have it on good authority).

    2015 has come and gone, which means that DeLorean has only so many promotional options outside of the always dependable Back to the Future crutch. Their latest project is another staple of imagined future technology going back into the early part of the last century – flying cars. It’s the DeLorean DR-7, which the company […]

    1966 Amphicar 770 Going Up for Auction

    A car that drives on land and in the water is pretty much the ultimate dream of transportation. And like most dreams, it actually came true in the 1960s before failing to really take hold definitively – but now, you can own a real 1966 Amphicar 770 when it goes up for auction later this […]

    NASA Mars Rover Unveiled at Kennedy Space Center

    If humanity reaches Mars in the next few decades, how are they going to drive around once they get there?

The NASA Mars Rover concept […]
