11/18/2013, Mitsubishi has just announced that they will be offering a multi-modal character-input interface for Chinese language car navigation systems, targeting such next generation systems. This human-machine interface (HMI) is able to accepts not only QuanPin but ShuangPin input as well through the use of PinYin phonetic symbols. Apart from that, it is also able to recognize handwriting and audible commands, giving you a grand total of four input modes. With […]
11/18/2013, Have you ever watched science fiction movies, where the future featured flying vehicles where everyone seemed to be able to keep to the right of way without any accident happening? That is a true miracle, especially when you take into consideration how on our normal roads alone, one would be able to find at least an impatient driver who weaves in and out of traffic, wedging his or her car […]
11/18/2013, Nearly a couple of years ago, we were treated to a look at the EMIRAI conceptual car interface from Mitsubishi. Well, it has been two years since, and we are pleased to announce that Mitsubishi themselves have come up with some progress concerning this concept. In fact, the EMIRAI 2 will be a whole concept car by itself, and if you happen to make your way to the Tokyo Motor […]
11/15/2013, Electric cars are great for the environment as they don’t need to consume gas in order to keep moving. They are, however, rather inconvenient as they will need to be charged and charging stations are not only not as common as gas stations, but charging and electric car also takes much longer than filling up a tank of gas. Scientists at the North Carolina State University might have come up […]
11/14/2013, Prior to Google Maps, MapQuest was the king of direction giving, although we’re sure if you used the service, you ended up with directions that were actually less accurate than Apple Maps. Either way, people trusted MapQuest back in the day and the service is now attempting to win back its old users by completely redesigning its mobile apps on iOS and Android.
11/13/2013, If you live in a major metropolitan city, you’ll know how important having designated areas for pedestrians to walk around is. Bridges are also equally as important as they certainly make it easier to travel from one side to another as showing up to work drenched from a river or lake is something none of us want. With that said, we’re not quite sure if this latest pedestrian bridge design […]
11/12/2013, If your commute to work is just a few blocks down the road, driving does not make much sense, and walking would take a whole lot more time than it is worth, making the bicycle one of the most cost effective modes of transport to get around. This is even more pronounced if you live in a suburb, and most shops and stores are close by. The thing is, riding […]
11/11/2013, We’ve seen drones that are able to become food servers as well as fly a fresh pizza pie to residents in the past, but we haven’t seen a drone quite like the one featured in this story. Let’s just say this drone is pretty much as close to a Transformer as we’re going to get.
11/10/2013, They say that beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder, but when it comes to the Nissan BladeGlider, I think that it is pretty safe to assume that just about everyone would behold it to be a beauty. This is a streamlined and futuristic ride from Japanese company Nissan, where they have called this particular ride the Nissan BladeGlider which recently debuted at the Tokyo Motor Show. The […]
11/08/2013, The FAA may have lifted regulations that originally stopped people from being able to use their personal electronic devices during an aircraft’s takeoff and landings, but one thing they haven’t authorized is the ability to still use our cell phones in order to make phone calls or text somebody. Evem though that still holds true as of this writing, Gogo is attempting to make it possible for passengers to perform […]
11/07/2013, Humans have been dreaming of taking flight in personal flying vehicles, like hover cars or jetpacks, for a very long time. We’ve seen some impressive advancements in jetpack technology over the years, but they all pale in comparison to Yves Rossy’s jetpack.
11/07/2013, The economy hasn’t been doing so great lately, which means you’ll probably want to keep an eye on your spending habits for the next couple of months. One luxury you may not be able to afford is purchasing a new vehicle, although you might be able to afford this one, that is, if you have no plans to transport other people or large amounts of cargo.
11/06/2013, If there’s one thing we know people don’t need wen they’re driving around is a bathtub in the backseat as making abrupt stops could certainly cause a burn or two to the back of your neck if the water is as hot as we’d expect it to be. But that’s exactly what Volkswagen Group Japan have built as they have built a Volkswagen Beetle that replaces its backseat with a […]
11/06/2013, Being able to share your current location at any time is the reason why services like Foursquare have been doing so well as not only can you let your followers know what you’re doing, but you can also receive recommendations based on where you are and what you’re doing. But there are some of us who want to share our location when we’re flying above the clouds, and today, Glympse […]
