Sorry To Disappoint…But Diamond-encrusted Emirates Isn’t Real

Recently, Dubai-based airliner Emirates have created quite some attention when it posted an image, on Twitter, of an Emirates Boeing 777 that appeared to be covered in diamonds with the caption “Presenting the Emirates ‘Bling’ 777. Image created by Sara Shakeel.” It appears that some people has taken the image at face value (and failing to note the “image created by Sara Shakeel”) and got all excited about it. However, Emirates have since clarify it is not real. Continue reading Sorry To Disappoint…But Diamond-encrusted Emirates Isn’t Real

Future Autonomous Taxi Is A Car That Is Also A Drone, But Not A Flying Car

Now this something we considered thinking out-of-the-box. When we think autonomous public transport, we often think self-driving car, self-driving bus, and autonomous drone. But Airbus, together with design studio Italdesign and Audi have come together to dream up a concept that is definitely not inside the box. The concept, called Pop.Up Next, can travel on regular roads and also take to the skies, but no, it is not quite a flying car.

Alphabet’s Drone Delivery Service To Go On Trial In Finland Next Year

If you are wondering what Google’s parent company Alphabet is or has been doing, well, this is one of the many things the company is doing: delivery using drone. The idea is not new, though. Amazon is among the the first to propose this seemingly audacious idea, but soon the idea caught up with the rest, including the likes of Swiss Post, Domino’s, and more recently, Flytrex – just to name a few. In fact, Alphabet has already started trialing delivery of a range of food and convenience items to customers in Australia for more than year now.

This Semi-Submersible Lets You Enjoy Views Above And Below The Water

If diving deep underwater – even in a luxury submarine like the supercar of submarine, the U-Boat Worx HiPer Sub – cannot quell your fear of the deep blue sea, then perhaps, the MSV Explorer Amphibious Semi-Submersible could be the perfect in-between solution. As the name implies, it is a partially submersible watercraft that offers both above- and underwater viewing options. While that alone is a major selling point of this unique vessel, MSV Explorer Amphibious Semi-Submersible does not stop there; it is also an amphibious vehicle too.

This Is The Audi e-tron Concept That Will Go Into Production In 2020

Audi has taken the wrap off its latest all-electric vehicle, the superlative Audi e-tron GT Concept at the recent LA Auto Show. For some e-tron is closely associated to two-door sports car (or SUV) from the German marque, but the Audi e-tron GT Concept is in fact an electric sports sedan. It sports an aggressive, I-mean-business front end that tails off a coupe-ish rear end (AKA sportback fastback). I know, it is odd to say this, but it was actually quite a sight to behold. Continue reading This Is The Audi e-tron Concept That Will Go Into Production In 2020

Russia’s TechnoImpulse Rocket Z SUV Gets You Ready For Zombie Apocalypse

When it comes to no-holds barred and eccentric off-roading vehicles, no one knows it better than the Russians. We have seen pretty mind-blowing contraptions from the amphibious bike to the monster truck-like SUV that is capable of pedaling across water to the 8×8 ATV monstrosity, and today, we saw this: the Rocket Z SUV (designated КРЕЧЕТ Z 210-91 in Russian) from TechnoImpulse, a Russian company that specializes in extreme exploration vehicles.

Like, Who Knew A Jeep Wrangler Looks This Awesome As A Hod Rod?

You see all sorts of custom Jeep, but I pretty damn sure hot rod isn’t in anyone’s dream, like ever. Yeah, yeah, I know. There are pretty crazy Jeep mods out there, including a drag racing monstrosity. However, nothing come close to this monstrosity created by French car customizer Danton Arts Kustoms for Harley-Davidson Valence France.

This Is It. The 8th Generation Porsche 911 Finally Shows Its Face (And Pricing)

This is it. The 8th-generation Porsche 911 finally shows its face and boy, it is the beauty you have known up to this point, but felt somewhat a little on the plumb side. At least, that’s my first impression. The ride was unveiled on the 28 in California, in Petree Hall at the LA Auto Show. I know. Many people are excited, but lets not let things get carried away. In other words, lets not get suck into the marketing mambo jambo and hit straight into what it has to offer. Continue reading This Is It.

Meet The Truly Hands-free Electric Skateboard, The Zenboard

Skateboard is old news and electric skateboard isn’t exactly new either, but most electric skateboard we have seen thus far threaded cautiously in the area of control. Almost all of them comes with an external control, a remote of sort, or at least, controllable via an app on your smartphone. Not the Australia’s Zenboard Handsfree Electric Skateboard. Zenboard boldly goes where no skateboard makers dare to go, by going absolutely hands free. Continue reading Meet The Truly Hands-free Electric Skateboard, The Zenboard
