Fisker Inc. has plenty of experience teasing and detailing its debut car ... more than a year of it, in fact. But before 2018, the all-electric EMotion had yet to be properly introduced to the world at a formal premiere. That's all changed at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, where Fisker is showing off a devilishly red EMotion, its compelling interior and the cutting edge battery techno

To promote the new F90-series M5, BMW took its flagship performance sedan to the BMW Performance Centre skid pad in South Carolina and smashed the recor

You probably know him best as the straight-faced, beret-topped half of the Mythbusters duo, but Jamie Hyneman has been very busy since the show ended last year. Leading a team of engineers and designers, he's now concocted a prototype that sounds like something you'd see in an ACME catalog: electric shoes.

The eScooter from Allocacoc (the folks behind 2014's PowerCube) is claimed to have riders rolling along from folded up to travel-ready in 3 seconds, and features a chunky bike seat and integrated shock absorb
Around 4,500 miles (8,300 km) separate the Pacific coasts of Japan and Silicon Valley, a distance beyond the reach of current non-military drones. But a new event called the Pacific Drone Challenge has thrown down the gauntlet to those in the business of driving the technology forward, tasking competing teams with making the massive crossing using an unmanned aircraft without stopping to re-f
The electric buses from Proterra keep going from strength to strength. We first heard of its vehicles in 2015, when its Catalyst XR logged more than 250 mi (402 km) on a single charge. Less than two years have passed, and the company is now reporting its 40-ft (12-m) Catalyst E2 max has managed a run of 1,101.2 mi (1,772 km), which is a record-breaking drive for any electric vehicle...Continu
Asteroids whizz past Earth on a regular basis, and thankfully they're usually only a few meters wide. But next month we're due for a close encounter with a monster space rock measuring 4.4 km (2.7 mi) across, making it the largest near-Earth object (NEO) to come this close to the planet since NASA began tracking them almost 20 years ago...Continue Reading 3-mile asteroid is the largest Earth-

The idea of a solar-powered car has been floated a number of times over the last few years, but past attempts have generally fallen into the basket of good ideas that just don't work in the real world. According to the Netherlands-based Lightyear, that's all set to change. The company says its first car, called the One, will be an electric four-wheel drive with a range of 800 km (497 mi) ...C is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
