HP Slate gets installed in vehicle dashboard

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on January 26th, 2011

Sure, we’ve seen the iPad fitted into a vehicle’s dashboard before, but it’s still not a very common occurrence. Besides, how often do you see a Windows 7 tablet installed in a vehicle? This is the first time as far as we know.

When HP decided to open its Vancouver store, it customized a GMC Yukon Denali truck with an HP Slate embedded in the dash. I guess they want you to get a spare tablet to integrate into your vehicle so they can double sales.

Beverage Buggy

Posted in R/C Toys by Conner Flynn on May 3rd, 2010

Beer + Buggy = You getting drunk without having to move your ass off the couch. Let’s face it, it’s 2010 and by now we should be able to go to Walmart and buy a robot butler who will bring us beer, but that isn’t the case. So we will just have to work with what we have.

And what we have is RC vehicles. They will have to do. Like this fully functional Beverage Buggy, which delivers two cans or bottles of your favorite drink(beer) in a radio-control dune buggy. But who is going to load that beer into the buggy?

Supermarket Electric Vehicle concept makes shopping easier, shoppers fatter

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on April 20th, 2010

Remember in the Wall-E movie where all of the future humans were lethargic and fat, riding around in hover chairs. Well, this is where it starts. Right here with this concept. Some future fatty may need to put down the soda and chips long enough to time-travel back to 2010 and fight this thing.

A designer has come up with a nice leisurely way to pick up the groceries with this Supermarket Electric Vehicle. The battery-powered vehicle will allow you to zip around the aisles without having to burn a single calorie.

Kettquad Pedal-Powered ATV

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on February 18th, 2010

Your little one deserves a quality ATV right? Why not buy your little rugrats the Kettquad from Kettler? The German company recently unveiled this four wheeler that features pneumatic tires for off-road terrain and even a protected enclosed chain drive. Looks like a ton of fun.

Expect it to hit the US sometime this year, with your kid hitting a tree soon after. It will retail for between $800 and $1000. It’s for kids 5 to 12 years of age, so don’t let your toddler ride this thing.

Art Lebedev’s Transparentius makes roads safer

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2009

Transparentius is a simple and great idea. Just put a camera on the front of a large truck, then project that image onto the back of the truck. This makes the truck “transparent” for the driver behind, who now has much more information about what lies on the road ahead.

If you know what’s coming, you won’t get flattened like a pancake on the road when you try to pass. We don’t know how the rear projection is achieved or how sunlight glare factors in, but Art Lebedev usually has it all thought out. The real question is, how expensive would this be?

Air Board lets humans ride UFOs

Posted in Personal Transport by Conner Flynn on October 28th, 2009

Air Board lets humans ride UFOsThe Segway is fine if you’re a mall cop or something, but what I really want is a UFO that hovers just above ground. That I can stand on and ride. The Air Board is just that thing. A $14,000 personal hovercraft that floats 8″ above the ground and reaches a maximum speed of 15 mph.

It will give you an hour or so on just 1.3 gallons of gas. Not bad. Not bad. But can it abduct smaller lifeforms? Like ants and insects maybe? I sure hope so. This thing steers by using levers and shifting your weight.

Wilcraft amphibious ice-fishing vehicle

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on August 13th, 2009

Wilcraft amphibious ice-fishing vehicleThis is the Wilcraft amphibious mobile ice-fishing cabin. It’s for serious ice fishermen. It will carry up to 600 pounds of fish, with a top speed of 20mph. The best feature is that if you are on thin ice, you won’t sink in and freeze to death as the Wilcraft will float. That not only saves you, but all of the fish you’ve caught.

The Wilcraft can also be used as a hunting or even an ice rescue vehicle. It gets about 20 miles per gallon and should you decide you need an outdoor fortress, it will cost you $10,495. This might just be the new all purpose camping/fishing/hunting type vehicle.


McDonalds to offer electric vehicle recharging at restaurants

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on July 6th, 2009

McDonalds to offer electric vehicle recharging at restaurantsFirst they offered their customers WiFi, now McDonalds is installing electric vehicle charging stations for the handful of you with electric cars. They are starting in Cary North Carolina, where McDonalds will be the first to offer car recharging via the ChargePoint Networked Charging Stations.

One of the barriers to electric vehicle is the lack of charging infrastructure. So this is bigger news than it might seem like at first. and I suppose this is one way to improve things. Mickey D may not be the most ideal place to charge your car, but this will lead to better options for sure.

Rock: Nissan mystery vehicle

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on June 14th, 2009

Rock: Nissan mystery vehicleThe folks over at Yanko Design came across this mysterious miniature vehicle named ROCK. Sure, it looks like Darth Helmet’s head on wheels. Very little is known about the device except the obvious: It is dark and ominous and possibly how cats will take over the world.

It was created by designer Alberico J. Camacho and sports a tiny Nissan logo. That’s Really all we know, but it seems to be some kind of music player, like a more robust Sony Rolly. The ROCK could also be a scale model prototype for a concept car that Camacho worked up for Nissan.

XR3 plug-in hybrid trike heads for production Are you ready for a futuristic ride that actually looks futuristic? The XR3 plug-in 3-wheeled hybrid was specially constructed to be as light as possible. It’s just a bonus that it also ended up looking as cool as possible.

It’s ready to enter production phase, and we can’t wait for it to hit the streets. The XR3’s “through-the-road hybrid system” allows for 200mpg. When it reverts to its 23 hp diesel engine it will achieve 125 mpg, which is pretty good too. If you run out of fuel, the li-ion battery pack will provide 40 miles.

GildeCycle lets the handicapped run

Posted in Exercise Gadgets by Conner Flynn on March 30th, 2009

GildeCycle lets the handicapped runThose of us not handicapped take running and bike riding for granted. Sadly, handicapped individuals can not participate in either activity. But the GlideCycle might let them do what they’ve only dreamed about. Check out a video below.

The GlideCycle can be powered with just one leg, or even two disabled legs. It was developed in Oregon and is great for those who are overweight, disabled, amputees, and even non-disabled people. It’s basically a large U with wheels and a seat that lets anyone exercise outdoors.

Horse training vehicle monitors race horses

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on March 4th, 2009

Horse training vehicle monitors race horsesIf you’ve been journeying far and wide across the interwebz, you may already know what this vehicle is all about. We covered it last July and it’s making the rounds again. If you haven’t seen it, here’s a refresher. This isn’t the Amish discovering Hot Rods, it trains horses.

And we still think Batman may have had something to do with it. I mean, look at the design. Bruce Wayne has his hands in everything. Why not race horses? It allows trainers to be close to the animals while training them and monitoring their vital signs. It has very precise and controlled speeds ranging from walking to 60kph.

iMo is like a tiny Apple car

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2009

iMo is like a tiny Apple carYou have your iPhone, iMac and your iPod, but you’re really looking forward to the next iProduct. What we have here is a car that’s based on the popular brand. The iMo. This little pod of a car consists of very few parts, making it a simple and reliable mode of geek transport.

It’s powered by electricity and charges itself through a socket at the back or by using electric induction from the floor, when available. It even boasts an artificial intelligence system, soft wheel and soft seat technology, even Segway gyroscopic technology, which is why you only see two wheels. The parts are fully recyclable as well.

Helios Off-Roader inspired by the Jurassic era

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on November 6th, 2008

Helios Off-Roader inspired by the Jurassic eraHelios was clearly inspired by the Jurassic era, when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. Helios is a concept design for an off-road electric solar-powered vehicle. When you take a break from your off-roading and stop the vehicle, the car will spread its “wings” which are made of photovolatic panels, in order to capture the sun’s rays and charge up the battery.

You’ve seen the concept in nature, where some animals have stretchable skin that absorb heat and light. A lizard might stop on a rock to take a breather and as he does, he opens up his extra skin and recharges. Same thing here. The Helios Concept won the Best Use of Technology at the Interior Motives Design Awards 2008. Pretty awesome.
