This completely redesigned Audi TT Clubsport Turbo Concept ($TBA) will have you wishing it was an official release. The turbo is powered by an electric bitubo 2.5l 5 cylinder engine featuring Quattro's renowned AWD Technology. With a list of mods longer than your arm this Audi TT has also seen a bit of a face lift with a streamlined grill, adjustable rear wing and a titanium roll cage to hold it all in place. Boasting 600 horses, 480 lb-ft of torque, 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 192mph this concept certainly kicks ass, at least on paper.
Owen & Fred are known for providing high-quality, well designed products and this remote control indoor airplane ($160) is no different. Their indoor flyer weighs in at just 3 grams, but is made to withstand any punishment you can throw at it. The frame is made from carbon fiber and can be flown in a room as small as 12 feet by 16 feet. The plane comes completely assembled and all you need to add is 4-AA batteries for the transmitter/charger and you are good to go. This [video_lightbox_youtube video_id=3dRxDMU0py4 width=640 height=480 anchor=video] has setup instructions and shows the plane in action.
The original Robocop took place in a crime-ridden Detroit and a Peter Weller (RoboCop) is killed when he takes what seems like a hundred bullets plus a final one to the dome. He is then turned into the RoboCop to fight crime. In the new RoboCop Movie Trailer ($TBA) it looks like he gets blown up and doesn't die, just gets really messed up which is a little disappointing. The brutality of the origInal kill scene really sets the stage in the first movie about the morality of using extreme violence to fight violence. Take a look at the video and let me know what you think of the new flick.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBeSfnIT_Bw
Tesla has just announced they'll be releasing the New Tesla Model S Dual Motor P85D ($121). The new S models will feature a motor on each axle, that independently controls torque to the front and rear wheels. You end up with unparalleled traction control, while the instantaneous response of the motors gives you controlled performance in any condition. Tesla says the, "Dual Motor Model S has the most capable road holding and handling of any vehicle ever produced". It also has the best performance beating all gasoline cars in its class. And they backed this up by beating the Mclaren F1's 0 to 60 mph time when the P85D marked a 3.2 second 0 to 60 mph split.But that's not all, the new model also comes with all the hardware needed for autopilot functionality. The package includes, forward radar, 12 long range ultrasonic sensors, a forward looking, and a high precision, digitally controlled electric assist braking system. In the near future they foresee the Model S being able to steer to keep you in your lane, change lanes with a tap of the turn signal, braking and steering to avoid collisions, and manage speed by reading road signs. For autonomous control is still a long way off but the Model S should be upgradable when the firmware comes out.
