If the latest Tesla Gen2 Roadster makes it to market (slated for 2020) it will be the fastest production car to date, with a 0-60 mph time of 1.9 seconds. That is insanely fast but will cost you around $200,000. 0-100 mph is expected to be just 4.2 seconds and the quarter mile would be under 9 seconds! Top speed wasn’t officially posted but Elon Musk hinted at 250 mph+. The specs are almost too good to be true. The battery is a massive 200kWh pack with a 620-mile range per charge. Video of the Tesla Second Generation Roadster after...

If the Honda Grom is too lowbrow or isn’t fast enough for you, check out BMW’s latest Scooter. The BMW C400X is the little brother to the C650 GT and C650 Sport scooters. The C400X has plenty of power for city and highway use and has some cool electronic bits and storage. The BMW C400X starts off with a new 350-cc single-cylinder engine with a single overhead cam and a balancing shaft. Single cylinder engines can often have vibrations and a thumping sensation, maybe this balancing shaft will smooth things out. Horsepower...

Having recently spent too much time traveling internationally I can attest to the fact that there are many levels of quality when it comes to airline seats. Everything from age, to seat comfort, to legroom, shoulder room, and more. Some airlines haven’t a clue about ergonomics or comfort while others seem to have it figured out. I won’t go in to the best and worst airlines at this juncture. This post is about the latest Emirates Airlines commercial showing off their awesome Boeing 777 First Class Suites. First things first....

SpotMini

The ever creepy Boston Dynamics robots continue to evolve. Their latest 24-second video shows off the SpotMini Robot. Video of this robotic nightmare after the break. (more…)

Why not get your bikes LED head light to do some double duty as an HD camera. That is the idea behind the Cycliq Fly12 (and the Fly6 rear bike camera). The Cycliq Fly12 ($299) sports a 1080P camera with a 10-hour battery life, a built-in bike alarm, Strava integration, an LED 400 lumen light, and it is even weatherproof.    ...

While perusing Costco this past weekend I noticed a large insole kiosk. The kiosk was named “resa” and they were busy scanning folks feet and 3d printing insoles. Pretty cool idea. Surprisingly there are almost zero reviews of the RESA custom insoles. I will try and swing back over there later today and try a pair out. Update to come. ...

The ATHENA laser weapon can take down aircrafts, and just about anything else, in just a few quite seconds. This futuristic Star Wars like weapon was developed for the US military by Lockheed Martin. As long as there is a power source the weapon can continue to fire. In other words, it is a gun that never runs out of ammunition. The Lockheed Martin ATHENA (Advanced Test High Energy Asset) can be mounted on boats, vehicles, and more. How does it work? On the most basic level, ATHENA destroys threats with heat. It is similar to when folks...

If you drive a car, it is only a matter of time before a rock gets kicked up and leaves a nice chip or crack on your windshield. Such is life I suppose. Normally when you get a chip in the windshield glass (often called a bullseye, star, or crack) it is an expensive repair or a call to the insurance company. That is no longer the case with this inexpensive windshield chip repair kit at just $8. Read the instructions first and watch a couple of videos before...

BioLite FirePit In Action

We are big fans of the BioLite CampStove 2 and have used it on several trips with great results. The BioLite FirePit $199 (currently on Kickstarter with May 2018 shipping) continues on the tradition of air injected conbustion. This is BioLite’s biggest oven/stove system yet, perfect for sitting around as a campfire or cooking with wood or charcoal. All this goodness with less smoke and a more efficient fire. Sign me up. More after the break. (more…)

François Gissy had a dream. He built that dream. His trike is powered by 35 gallons of water in a carbon fiber wrapped tank with a pressure of 6,000PSI. Uncork this bad boy and it gets to 62MPH in 0.55 seconds. Top speed on the water pressure trike is 162.2MPH before it runs out of pressure. Keep going for video. ...
