What’s more, because parallel parking skills are rarely stressed during driver’s ed, most drivers are forced to learn on their own through trial and error.

Lexus is Building a Real-Life Hoverboard

Over the past several months, hoverboards have inexplicably become a regular topic of conversation. It started with a Back to the Future-inspired prank from Tony Hawk early last year. Before long, a Kickstarter for a real hoverboard started making the rounds and now, over a year after the original prank video, Lexus is building its own rideable hoverboard. More →

Samsung’s Insane New See-Through Truck Will Blow Your Mind

Samsung’s Insane New See-Through Truck Will Blow Your Mind

Well this is downright clever. Samsung is developing a ‘see through’ truck that will enable vehicles traveling behind large trucks to see what the traffic in the opposite lane is like in real-time. This is accomplished by fitting trucks with a night-vision enabled and wireless video camera in the front and transmitting the footage to a large display on the back. The underlying goal is to help drivers keen on passing slow moving trucks make more informed decisions in moments where a rash decision could prove deadly.

Slow Left Lane Driving Fines

Slow left lane drivers, it’s time to speed up or pay the dawdle tax

A study of road rage conducted by GfK on behalf of Expedia revealed that left lane drivers who are driving below the speed limit are the third top reason to get other drivers’ blood boiling, right after texting while driving and tailgating. It’s not surprising that more U.S. states are coming up with legislation to fine left lane hogs. More →

Tesla Model 3 Range

Tesla Model 3 may have more range than anyone imagined

Tesla Model 3 may have more range than anyone imagined

Tesla in recent years has done an impressive job of quelling the notion that driving an electric car is a risky proposition. This is largely due to the Tesla Model S (which sports an impressive range of approximately 250 miles) and Tesla’s ever expanding fleet of Supercharger stations. As a result, Tesla owners these days can drive their vehicles across the country with ease, stopping at strategically positioned charging stations along the way.

Nonetheless, electric cars are still something of a niche product. But Tesla CEO Elon Musk, always one to dream big, has grand visions of bringing electric cars into the mainstream in the next few years. His secret weapon in this regard is the Tesla Model 3.

Apple Car Rumors

What Apple’s failed HDTV plans tell us about an Apple Car

What Apple’s failed HDTV plans tell us about an Apple Car

For anyone who thinks that Apple releasing a car is all but a sure thing, the lessons from Apple’s now-abandoned efforts at developing an HDTV should not be ignored. The Wall Street Journal this week detailed how Apple spent nearly a decade researching and prototyping HDTV sets before opting to abandon the idea altogether. While Apple could have undoubtedly released a branded HDTV if it wanted to, it decided not to after struggling to come up with compelling features that would have differentiated its own HDTV from rival sets.

The arc of this story is not wholly surprising or even unique; Apple spent a few years and a whole lot of money researching a product before realizing it wasn’t worth pursuing. As Steve Jobs once said, ” I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.”

And yet, people still seem to be looking at the mythical Apple Car as all but a sure thing, all the while ignoring the fact that Apple constantly researches new technologies and products that, more often than not, never see the light of day.
