mercedes benz ledTesla might be the big name at the moment when it comes to electric vehicles, but our capitalist market would see that there will be decent competition in this aspect, and Mercedes-Benz looks as though they are up to the task. In fact, we have received whispers that Mercedes-Benz would be working on an electric vehicle that will carry a range of up to 311 miles on a full charge, and other than the rather impressive range (although far from the record set by the Tesla Model S P85D), the modular nature of the EV platform that Mercedes-Benz is taking is also of great interest, since the automobile maker can easily adapt it to multiple vehicles.

Earlier this year we reported that a screen protector called the Halo Back gave your iPhone a back button. It was an intriguing idea and if you want to give your iPhone additional touch capabilities, you might be interested in a Kickstarter project for an iPhone called the HandyCase which will give the back of your iPhone touch capabilities.

What this means is that users will be able to perform touch gestures via the back of their phone. This will come in handy if your hands are a bit too small for the phone and you want to use it with one hand. By introducing touch capabilities, users will be able to use the phone with one hand to browse websites, user the camera, pinch to zoom, and so on.
