04/07/2010, Motionlite has come up with retractable LED lights for your wheels to pimp your ride, where you will mount it right behind your wheels. Using a remote control, you will be able to extend the six-inch arm and activate the LED throwing light directly onto your rims for a glowing effect. There are seven colors to choose from, depending on your mood as well as budget. The kit will cost […]
03/31/2010, It seems that Novaled is working with a European car maker to develop OLED lighting for cars, which can be used as interior lighting, as well as backlights in the future. The goal is to have a car that uses these new panels on the market in the next two years. Apparently they’re already beyond the concept phase, and are now planning on starting production. There wasn’t any mention of […]
01/31/2010, Have you seen those Wi-Fi detecting T-shirts before? Well, the folks over at Instructables have come up with a way for you to turn that into a Wi-Fi detecting bumper sticker. It would certainly be more practical to keep it inside your car (so that you know when there is a Wi-fi signal), but you could always stick it facing outwards at the back of your car (as pictured), so […]
01/31/2010, Do you think that your Bluetooth headset’s volume is way too low? Well, the Jupiter Jack might be able to do something about that. It can plug into any cell phone headphone jack, and after you tune your car radio to 99.3 FM, you’ll be able to start yakking away. Volume shouldn’t be a problem anymore, as the sound will be transmitted through your car speakers. At $9.98, it’s certainly […]
12/03/2009, While battery technology certainly hasn’t progressed as far as we’d like, which is just yet, amagriom! The good news is that Nissan is working on a new type of battery cells. If the estimations are correct, then Nissan’s Leaf will be able to travel a good 200 miles on a single charge. Not too shabby eh?
11/25/2009, If you’re paranoid about people tracking you via GPS and such, you’ll probably want to pick up a GPS jammer. If some of them might seem big, you’ll probably want to check out the In Car GPS Jammer, which is powered by your car’s power socket, and is fairly small. It’ll, set you back $45 if you decide you want one.
09/20/2009, By that, we don’t mean a video game vehicle but a real life one – especially when the Xbox 360 controller has been integrated right smack in the middle of a steering wheel, complete with buttons and all. Oh and wait – what is that we see at the middle of the dashboard? It is actually an Xbox 360 faceplate! Meant for really, really hardcore fans of Microsoft’s console only. […]
07/27/2009, I remember one of those older comedies from Eddie Murphy who was taking a dig at Stevie Wonder, asking the latter to impress Eddie the man himself by taking over the wheel while they were having a conversation in the car. Well, this scenario might be plausible in the near future as Virginia Tech undergrads have managed to build a car that the blind can drive. This semi-autonomous vehicle comes […]
06/25/2009, Check out the Porta-Pizza oven that lets the budding chef in you get to work while you put all the good time spent in a traffic gridlock to good use by baking your own pizza in the process. This 12-volt pizza oven would probably do a number on your car’s battery faster than you expect, but at least you don’t have to arrive at the office hungry as you munch […]
