The Air Vinyl Airpod Cases ($17) come in a few different stylish colors and have an exterior that is made of top grain Napa leather....

McDonald's Self-Ordering Kiosk

I probably shouldn’t be eating at McDonald’s in the first place, but on occasion, it hits the spot. With that said, I typically worry about the healthiness and quality of the food. Guess I should be worried about the LCD ordering touchscreens. Yikes. In every McDonald’s tested, these self-ordering LCD screens had fecal bacteria on them. Read on for the details. (more…)

Last night Tesla unveiled their latest creation – the Tesla Model Y. In what looks like an offspring of the Model 3 and X, the Y is aimed at the mid-sized crossover SUV market. The interior is similar to the Model 3 with clean and elegant lines and few distractions outside of the single 15-inch screen. There is seating for up to seven people, 66 cubic feet of cargo space, and range options from 230 to 300 miles depending on the specific model. The 0-60 times...

lazareth-lm-847-v8-motorcycle

This insanely beautiful brut of a motorcycle is built in the least likely of places – France. No offense to the French but you have to admit this is more US type of nonsense than FR. Either way, it is quite impressive and a work of engineering magic.

Lazareth has been making one-off motorcycles for quite a while, like this V8-powered LM 847 which uses an engine from a Maserati GranTurismo. That means you get a 4.7-liter engine that makes 470 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque – in a motorcycle. The Lazareth LM 847 can get to 90 mph in just a few seconds. Video of this bad boy after the break. (more…)

Sure, technically it is a “coin purse” that has a couple of snaps so you can clip it on to your backpack or belt. But the EASYANT Coin Purse ($39) is also a “skull thumper” or self defense weapon similar to the old soap in the sock trick. You get the idea. ...

Volkswagen - Autosalon Genf 2019

Apparently Tesla put the entrenched car makers on notice and they all woke up from a deep slumber. Now, just about every car manufacturer is working on an EV. In Volkswagen’s case they are working on quite a few.  Most will be… boring. This one, however, isn’t boring at all and is dubbed the ID. BUGGY.

This electric VW dune buggy will be based on their new modular electric vehicle platform called MEB. This electric buggy is inspired by the VW-powered buggies of the 60’s and 80’s. The ID. BUGGY will be a rear wheel drive with a 62 KwH battery with a 155 mile range. More pictures of this electric VW buggy after the break. (more…)
