We Can’t Help But To Cringe At This Over-modded Elantra With Iron Man-inspired Paint Job

You know we have a tag called “Weird Stuff”? Yea. We do. Under normal circumstances, custom cars will never fall under this category. It is almost impossible to brand a custom ride as “Weird Stuff” unless it was one that looks like a dick, or to be precise, one that was intentionally modeled after a man’s penis. Unfortunately, this is the day we stumbled upon one that fits squarely into this “Weird Stuff” tag and the custom ride in question is this not-so-tastefully-done third-generation Hyundai Elantra. I mean, as if modding an Elantra isn’t bad enough; to make it look like this is borderline blasphemy. Man, it sure takes a unique mindset to even dream up with this.

This Is The BMW P63/1, The Heart Of BMW’s WEC Contender, The BMW M8 GTE

Adoration for cars is beyond aesthetic. A true car lover will learn to adore the motor as much as the power it pumps out. I am not sure about you, but I, for one, is a person who love marveling at the engine as much as driving the car, or admiring its bodywork. This is the very reason why when I saw the press text from BMW, detailing the heart of the BMW M8 GTE, I get all wet with excitement and I felt compelled to share it with you folks.

Hyundai Fuel Cell Electric Cars Drove Itself From Seoul To Pyeongchang

If you have not been keeping abreast with car innovations, you may want to know that South Korean automaker Hyundai has been working diligently in the area of fuel cell-powered electric vehicles and it has made some serious progress in this area. To showcase the company’s fuel cell development, the company has commissioned a head-turning, very black pavilion that is part art installation, part education center that aims to entertain and at the same time, educate visitors about its fuel cell technology. But the darkest building in the world is not the only thing the company had going; the automaker also announced, on February 4, a fleet of Hyundai next generation fuel cell electric vehicles had successfully completed an autonomous journey from Seoul to PyeongChang.

This Inflatable Raft Actually Rolls Up To The Size Of Paper Towels

There are rafts that you bring to a lake and then there are rafts that you bring to a lake located off the beaten paths. Obviously, a regular raft or kayak, for that matter, is not going to make it to the latter. In such instance, you will need a raft like the Rogue Packraft. Rogue Packraft is the latest inflatable raft from Denver-based Kokopelli Packraft that packs up into a size a little bigger than a roll of paper towel. This means, it can be brought along even if you trail biking. ATV not required, neither is trailer necessary, and that is awesome in our books.

About KIA “Muscle Car” Stinger And Upcoming KIA Rio GT-Line Hatchback

KIA is last name one would expect to go all out about performance, but here it is, the company’s image of performance is forever imprint with the much lauded and I dare say, most anticipated, “muscle car,” Stinger. When we first saw the concept last year, we were did not think it will make it to production, but it clearly did. I know. I may be late on this, but still, it will be a sin not to mention this monster machine from the South Korean car maker. The thing is, there are not rules in naming a car, but to have a car with a moniker like ‘Stinger’, it has an unspoken expectations Continue reading About KIA “Muscle Car” Stinger And Upcoming KIA Rio GT-Line Hatchback

Is This Tesla Hearse A Fitting Display Of The Death Of Gas Automobile?

I have no idea how did we missed this. This particular dark custom Tesla Model S went viral when it surfaced back in 2016. Notwithstanding that it is over a year old, we thought it will be a good idea to mention it since there may be folks like me who aren’t aware and also because, Zachary Shahan of CleanTechnica had the opportunity to see it in person and thus, wrote an article on the backstory of this one-of-a-kind Tesla hearse (and there’s a video too).

Airbus Successfully Demoed Parcel Delivery Drone With NUS

The future of small parcel delivery is no doubt from up above. Amazon has been working hard to realize this and even go as far as pushing a pilot in UK. Several other companies, including DHL, has also embarked on the same path and in the case of DHL, an unmanned drone was used to delivery of medicines and such across great length. However, we have yet to see one that is truly adapted to dense urban environment, until now. Meet Skyways, a collaborative project between the National University of Singapore (NUS) and France’s multinational aerospace giant Airbus that differs from the majority in that it is a complete system featuring automatically loading and unloading via a robotic arm. Now that, my friends, is what we call futuristic! Continue reading Airbus Successfully Demoed Parcel Delivery Drone With NUS

Kiddie ride comes in a myriad of designs.
