Reboot Buggy, a car built for itself

“A car that can do 150Mph and go over rocks at the same time, to pull up at a valet and have it parked” – Joey Ruiter.

This car was built for perfection, for the car, to be the best it could be. It looks like a real beast!

Toyota’s new concept car is more like a touchpad computer on wheels

Gotta love Toyota’s innovation, even if it is a bit out there for reality.

The latest offering in a concept car called the Fun-Vii, has huge touch screen sides instead of doors that drivers can reportedly use to surf the net while sitting or standing next to their car.
The car is quite impractical of course, as are most concept cars, but I for one would love to have one so i can have my own cusomt animated paint job and then watch movies with mates on the side o fmy car parked at the beach on a summer afternoon 🙂

Standardization is a good thing – Electric cars get standard plug

“seven vehicle manufacturers have agreed to adopt a standardised charging system in Europe and the US. Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford, General Motors, Porsche and Volkswagen have all signed up to the scheme.”

Finally we see manufacturers joining up to form a standard. You will soon be able to buy an electric car safe in the knowledge that the plug will be common between your first car and the second, your car and your wifes, the family car and the weekly run about.

Gadget makers have been working towards this for years in the micro-USB cable that you will find in just about any device (that is not an Apple device!) you can buy now.
