09/18/2013, Tesla has decided to enter into the self-driving car race, after various companies such as Google and Nissan have already detailed their plans. The company is going to produce a car that is capable of running on “auto-pilot” within the next three years.

09/05/2013, Just how far can the all electric Tesla Model S go on a full battery? Well, earlier this year, Tesla Motors founder and CEO, Elon Musk, did reiterate his intentions to perform a cross country trip – not on a fossil fuel powered ride, but rather, in a Tesla Model S. In the past, such a trip would have required a fair amount of planning, many hours of charging as […]
08/25/2013, The Tesla Model S did make our headlines more than a week ago, bumping into an utility pole and causing a blackout of the area along the way. This time around, here we are with additional details concerning the Tesla Model S – it could very well be hacked. The Model S allegedly has a weak spot, which would be the security of its API (application programming interface) authentication.
08/16/2013, Ah, the irony of a situation – an electric sports car actually ran and kissed a utility pole, and this particular accident resulted in a blackout in that area. The car in question? A Tesla Model S, whose driver has been charged with DUI, rammed his ride into a utility pole in Murfreesboro, TN, and that particular action of his ended up with the local power station experiencing a blackout […]

02/18/2013, We’ve seen tesla coils used for some pretty neat things recently like being used as a Nerf gun, but being able to bend electricity to your will in order to play the main theme song for Super Mario Bros. is probably one of the coolest things we’ve seen a tesla be used for. Tampa’s University of South Florida X-Labs decided it was time to use their monster Tesla at full power […]
10/10/2012, My first experience with how a Tesla coil works was not entirely scientific, as it was set in the battlefields of Command & Conquer, the unbelievable world where tanks are stopped by the presence of sandbags. Well, hacker Rob Flickenger sure has a better way of implementing the wonders of Tesla in the form of a Tesla coil gun which uses the Nerf gun as its starting point. Obviously, the […]

The technology relies on a solar system from SolarCity, and even better news for Tesla’s Model S owners – using those will be free. Calling it […]
09/13/2012, When it comes to electric vehicles, you do not simply drive up to a gas station and “fill ‘er up”, so to speak, as there is this rather lengthy charging process that you need to go through in the first place. Well, Tesla Motors might have come across a rather innovative approach in the form of the Tesla Supercharger network. It should be more than just a simple charging post […]
