Ring is mostly known for its home security systems like its smart doorbell and more recently its home security camera that comes with a built-in sentry drone. However, it seems that the company has decided to expand on their portfolio where they’ll be moving beyond the home and into automobiles.
For a while, Tesla’s electric cars were viewed as premium vehicles due to their high price tags. However, in recent years, the company has started to offer more affordable models, like the Tesla Model 3 which is priced starting at $35,000. This is by no means cheap, but it is more affordable compared to some of the company’s other electric cars.
A lot of car makers have set themselves deadlines in which they eventually plan to make the shift to fully-electric vehicles. However, for those who might be holding out, they might have some trouble over in California because the state’s governor, Gavin Newsom, has announced that he will be signing an executive order that will ban the sale of new gas-powered cars starting in 2035.
Tesla has always been pretty careful when marketing its Autopilot feature, which they have insisted in the past does not turn their vehicles into self-driving cars, even though for the most part it does have certain autonomous capabilities. However, it has not stopped Tesla owners from treating it as such.
It seems that pilots don’t only have to worry about other planes in the sky, birds, or drones, but it looks like a new worry can be added to the list in the form of people flying jetpacks. This is because according to a recent report, pilots flying over LAX have reported to have seen someone flying a jetpack near the airport.
One of the features of Tesla’s cars is its Autopilot feature, which the company has insisted is not a self-driving feature. However, it does more or less function like a self-driving car, where it can detect obstacles, make turns, and also speed up or slow down. However, there have been some wondering about the latter feature.
We’ve all seen the TV shows and movies where everyone seems to be driving a flying car. It always felt like the stuff of science fiction, but it looks like it’s slowly becoming a reality. In fact, over in Japan, they are inching towards such a future thanks to Japan’s SkyDrive who recently successfully tested a flying car which got off the ground with a human pilot in the seat.
Every year, we hear stories about kids who have been left in cars while it’s parked outside. Sometimes these kids are lucky where passersby see them and get help, but sometimes it’s tragic and the kids die as a result of being stuck in a hot car. There are many reasons for this happening in the first place.
While we do welcome the technology that makes our cars smarter and better than they ever were, it in turn creates a new set of problems, namely security issues where they can be hacked. However, if you own a Tesla car, you might be pleased to learn that the iOS version of the app is about to get a lot more secure.
Before there were CDs and DVDs, many computers relied on floppy disks to store data. You would assume that such technology would have died out already, especially given in this day and age where everything is becoming more digital, but it turns out that might not be the case, at least for Boeing’s 747-400 aircrafts.
The majority of cars these days tend to be sold in somewhat plain and almost boring colors. Part of the reason is because these colors are more generally accepted and makes the car easier to be resold, but at the same time, the downside is that it lacks a bit of personality.
One of the reasons for creating electric cars is to help reduce the negative impact of mining for fossil fuels that power more traditional cars. Combine that with solar panels that can generate energy to charge our electric cars and it seems like a winning scenario, but now Audi wants to take things one step further with bi-directional charging.
Remember the good old days when you would buy something and it was essentially yours, no strings attached? Unfortunately, for BMW car owners, it seems that the company has announced a new initiative that will undoubtedly draw a lot of criticism, and this comes in the form of an expansion of its ConnectedDrive Store.
Back in the early days of the automobile, there was no such thing as onboard computers and cars were pretty much purely mechanical. For the most part, cars these days are still largely mechanical, but now come with computers built into them that have software to better control and fine tune the car in a myriad of ways.
