The Tesla is the only electric car company that is addressing the charging issue head-on. What other car company has a massive global quick charging network? This is more about the United States even though Tesla is growing the Supercharger network worldwide. Currently Tesla has 2,636 Supercharger stations at 373 locations in North America. Impressive right? Well Tesla now plans to double this number by the end of 2017. Smart move considering the number of Model 3’s that will be hitting the road in the next few years. ...

The delivery via drone dream is a cool idea but has many hurdles to overcome. The biggest one is the range of said drones. I don’t imagine we will see drones delivery from warehouse to homes/businesses anytime soon. With that said, UPS’ latest approach seems like a great idea. The plan is to have a drone mounted on the roof of the UPS truck that does out-of-the-way deliveries while the driver continues doing their normal route. When the drone has delivered the package it comes back to the truck and lands for new packages...

IKEA, the inexpensive Swedish furniture company, is now making a bicycle. Let’s get right to the important parts. The IKEA SLADDA will set you back $499, it comes with a belt-drive (no rusty chain), an automatic two-gear system, has an aluminum frame, rear coaster brake , and front disc brake. There are also some accessories you can add on to the bike (shown in the pictures) like a front rack, rear rack, or  a trailer. ...

  Update as of 1/12/2017. After raising nearly $34-million in funding and pre-orders the Lily Drone Project is dead. Refunds to come for those who placed pre-orders. As much fun as it is flying/controlling your own quadcopter/drone there are times when “follow me” technology is the way to go. I think that is one of the biggest downfalls of the other quadcopter in the market that don’t offer this tech, like the new DJI Phantom 3. The Lily...

Honda showed off their latest motorcycle tech dubbed Riding Assist. Honda Riding Assist has a self-balancing technology that greatly reduces the chance of falling over while the motorcycle is at rest. AKA getting on/off while stopped. It can also articulate the front fork to raise and lower the front of the motorcycle. I assume this is for easier mount/dismounts. If that isn’t enough to impress you, the bike can even follow you around with the touch of a button. Seriously. This self-balancing motorcycle will follow you perfectly...

Not sure what it is that draws me to bikes with fat tires. You know, like the Mongoose Beast, Dolomite, and Hitch style bikes. Yes, I know that they are horribly inefficient and have extra weight and rolling resistance. But they just look so cool. So, why not take it up a notch by using your old car tires and pop them on your bike? Well that is just what Mr-Mash did with his instructable....

Amazing time lapse video of a Chrysler Hemi FirePower engine from start to finish. The rebuild took 10-months, a ton of work, and over 40,000 photos. Very cool. ...

If last years hover boards are starting to collect dust and aren’t getting used much, it may be time for a chair conversion. The HoverSeat ($89) is not only practical and fun but it is also safer than the standing model. We have all seen the videos of people falling on hover boards and many of us have actually experienced it first hand. Some of us even received injuries. Shout out to Margie. The HoverSeat...

Alfa Romeo is making a statement in the SUV market with their Stelvio, named after a winding pass in the Italian Alps. There are two power options, a turbo 2.0-liter four cylinder that makes 280hp (with an 8-speed automatic and all-wheel drive) and a 505hp 2.9-liter turbo V-6. The bigger engine option, the only option in my opinion, gets from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds. State-of-the-art engines are the beating hearts of each and every Alfa Romeo. Every Stelvio, Stelvio Ti and Stelvio Quadrifoglio are powered by class-leading engines that embody...
