    Android Auto Brings Google’s Mobile Platform To Your Dashboard

    With Apple having previously announced its intentions of being in everyone’s vehicles with Carplay, we all had a feeling Google will be announcing their own take on in-car infotainment sooner than later.  And that’s exactly what they did with the official unveiling of Android Auto, which brings the company’s mobile OS into automobile dashboards. Similar to Carplay, the system will hook up your Android phone via cable, essentially using the vehicle’s display as a screen casting accessory.  Rather than put [...]

    Project Livewire: Yes, Harley-Davidson Just Made An Electric Motorcycle

    Iconic motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson has announced their first ever electric motorcycle.  Called Project Livewire, it’s not a full-fledged commercial product just yet.  Instead, the company will be touring it around, giving potential customers a chance to test-ride the bike, then using feedback from that campaign to determine how it moves forward with the product. The campaign, called “The Project LiveWire Experience,” will be a cross-country tour along Route 66 that starts in New York and continues to 29 other US [...]

  • Bentley Continental GT3-R Turns The Luxury Grand Tourer Into A Sports Beast

    Bentley Continental GT3-R Turns The Luxury Grand Tourer Into A Sports Beast

    Bentleys aren’t exactly slow-running cars, but they’re far from being known as race-focused spitfires either.  That changes soon with the Bentley Continental GT3-R, a limited-edition driver-focused version of its race-winning Continental GT3. Limited to just 300 examples, the vehicle will be hand-built in Crewe just like the rest of its luxury-focused Continental brethren.  Before shipping to showrooms, though, it will pass by Bentley’s Motorsport division, where it gets tweaked and fine-tuned to effect serious improvements in performance. Powered by a [...]

  • Quadski XL: The Half-Jetski, Half-Quadcycle Can Now Ride Two People At A Time

    Quadski XL: The Half-Jetski, Half-Quadcycle Can Now Ride Two People At A Time

    We’re huge fans of the Quadski and its double-duty talents, ripping through bodies of water as capably as it does on rugged terrains.  Except it only had enough space to sit one, which ruled out meeting a girl at the beach and spending the day impressing her with your amphibious driving skills.  Not the case with the new Quadski XL, a two-seater version of the versatile recreational ride. Like its single-seat brother, the vehicle can transform from ATV to watercraft [...]

    Nimble Is A Cargo-Hauling Kick Scooter Capable Of Carrying 300 Pound Loads

    Chances are, you’d scoff at the prospect of getting a cargo kick scooter when you can get a cargo bike – the latter just seems a lot easier to use when ferrying heavy goods. The Nimble Cargo Scooter, however, makes a strong case for serving as your load-hauling ride of choice. Designed for short distance cargo trips, it boasts a more compact size compared to cargo bikes, all while managing to carry cargo up to 300 pounds. While that weight includes the [...]

    Ducati Monster 821 Brings Beastly Looks And Performance In Mid-Size Package

    You love the Ducati Monster 1200 and its Herculean physique, but aren’t quite ready to handle the responsibilities of a 1200cc beast between your legs. Maybe the new Ducati Monster 821, which brings similar brawny aesthetics while packing a more manageable 821cc powertrain, will be more along your speed. Powered by a water-cooled, 821-cubic-centimeter Testastretta 11° V-twin engine, Ducati’s new naked model pushes out 112 horsepower and 65.9 pound-feet of torque. Sure, that’s not exactly the kind of numbers that will make [...]

  • Google Made A Self-Driving Car From Scratch And It Has No Steering Wheel

    Google Made A Self-Driving Car From Scratch And It Has No Steering Wheel

    For years, Google has retrofitted existing cars with their self-driving system to test viability of the technology on the road. This time, they’re taking the next step: putting together a self-driving vehicle from scratch. Unveiled at Re/code by Sergey Brin, the self-driving car prototype is purpose-built for ferrying passengers autonomously. As such, they took out all the parts that people use when they drive, churning out a car that has no steering wheel, pedals, mirrors, gauges, and other vehicle staples. [...]

  • Doona: This Infant Car Seat Folds Out Into A Functional Stroller

    Doona: This Infant Car Seat Folds Out Into A Functional Stroller

    Unlike other car seat and stroller combos, the Doona doesn’t require parents to remove the legs and wheels when strapping it to the car. Instead, it uses a folding mechanism that cleverly tucks those parts in, allowing the whole stroller to strap into the vehicle like any regular rearward-facing car seat. Made by Simple Parenting, it’s described as “the world’s first infant car seat with a complete and fully integrated mobility solution.” When going from stroller to car seat, you simply retract [...]

  • Segway, Now On Three Wheels

    Segway, Now On Three Wheels

    The best Segway will always be the Segway that looks like a Vespa. But for people who actually use the personal transport device for utilitarian purposes, we have a feeling the Segway SE-3 Patroller might prove to be the best Segway to help get their jobs done. Unlike previous versions of the self-balancing one-person ride, the new Segway comes with an extra wheel, making it a full-fledged tricycle instead of the original two-wheeled oddity it used to be. Sure, this [...]

    2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat: This Car Wants To Murder Your Roads With 600-Plus Horsepower

    Described as “the most powerful muscle car in Chrysler history,” the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat brings a whopping 600-plus horsepower. Packing performance-enhancing technologies inside and out, it’s definitely one of the most exciting muscle coupes we’ve seen in recent times. That massive power comes courtesy of the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8, which boasts a forged-steel crankshaft with induction-hardened bearing surfaces, high-strength forged alloy pistons, heat-treated aluminum-alloy cylinder heads, and die-cast aluminum rocker covers. The engine can be mated to [...]

    Skylock Solar Powered Key Less Bike Lock Alerts You In Case It Is being Moved

    We’re almost certain future bike locks are going to resemble the Skylock, which updates the traditional U-lock with a whole load of smart and connected technologies. Sure, maybe they won’t look the same, but the feature set is exactly what suits these modern connected times. Unlike traditional bike locks, it’s impossible to pick. No, they didn’t put a genius locking system into it — it just doesn’t open with a traditional key, so there’s no way to access the lock [...]

    Daymak Beast: This Adorable-Looking Solar Battery Electric Bike Is A Serious Off-Road Machine

    While it looks more like a burly children’s scooter than a serious off-road toy, the latter is certainly what the Daymak Beast aspires to be. Combining elements from bicycles, motorcycles, and scooters with the off-road talents of an ATV, it’s one unique ride that combines tough performance with an unassuming appearance. Made by the same guys behind the Shadow Ebike, the electric two-wheeler brings a chunky, low-profile aesthetic that’s equal parts rugged and cute. Like a dirty Ryan Gosling. Suffice to [...]

  • Stemlock Can Make A Bicycle Impossible To Steer

    Stemlock Can Make A Bicycle Impossible To Steer

    The Stemlock is a permanent bike add-on that renders the handlebar useless until unlocked. That means, whoever is riding can’t steer the bike properly, potentially resulting in a few minutes of entertaining bike accident videos. Get your cameras ready. Despite the potential for pranks (and the occassional injury), the Stemlock is actually intended as an extra layer of security for bikes. While a thief can obviously still pick it up and run with your bike after he manages to get [...]

    With more and more people using bike computers, fitness monitors, and smartphone apps to add tracking and GPS functions to their bicycle rides, it only makes sense to start producing bicycles with sensors, radio chips, and all sorts of connected hardware. That’s exactly what we get with the Vanhawks Valour. No need to buy any extra hardware or software to get a variety of software services on your bike. Paired with a downloadable smartphone app, you can use it to record ride [...]

  • Verrado Brings Motorized Drift Triking To Flat Grounds

    Verrado Brings Motorized Drift Triking To Flat Grounds

    Drift triking, which has become a recognized sport (at least in New Zealand, where it originated), has been growing in popularity over the years, finding enthusiasts taking their slippery rear wheels to the hillsides and counter-steering the loss of traction when negotiating corners.  (Infact, we have been building our electric drift trike in the garage and would be posting a complete write up soon) Problem is, unless you live around sloping roads and hillsides, it’s a pretty inaccessible sport.  That’s [...]

    Helicat Catamaran Can Fly Through Rough Seas At 45 MPH

    The Helicat looks like a helicopter that landed in the middle of the ocean, then somehow managed to keep moving even while floating on water. It looks awesome. Rather than a boat and chopper hybrid, though, it’s actually just a seafaring catamaran that, for some reason, was fashioned to look like it came straight out of a 60s-era James Bond movie. While it won’t be taking off to send riders soaring through the skies, the boat will let you ride through harsh [...]

    Axe Kevlar Shirt Adds A Layer Of Safety During Your Motorcycle Excursions In Summer

    Warm weather is a great time to take out the motorcycle. Unless you enjoy the feeling of being in a sauna the whole day, however, it is a horrible time to ride around town while wearing your Dark Knight Motorcycle Suit. How do you keep yourself adequately protected while zipping through traffic on a two-wheeled crotch rocket? Maybe the Ace Kevlar Shirt can help. Made by Crave, it’s styled to look like a normal work shirt — the kind you wear [...]
