Uber Has Helicopters In Australia Now

Ordering a fancy Uber car with your phone and starting out at the plebs on in their normal cabs is already a pretty #firstworld experience, but Melbourne Uber users are about to take it to the next level on the weekend: you can order a helicopter with your phone to take you to the races.


This Is What Happens When You Put Smart Brakes In Bumper Cars

Here’s one of those ads that make you go, “those damn consumerism pimping bastards actually came up with an annoyingly clever idea.” Volkswagen outfitted bumper cars with its City Emergency Brake technology so that when you try and bump another car, the ultrasonic sensors would force the bumper car to brake and stop itself.


The New Ariel Atom Looks Bonkers

The Ariel Atom is insane. It corners on a knife’s edge and gets up to speed like nothing we’ve ever seen before. It’s built for tearing track records to pieces and putting a giant smile on your face while turning it inside out. Now the road-going go kart of myth and legend has a new model, and somehow it’s faster than ever before. Meet the Atom 3S.

Tesla's New Model S Can Out-Accelerate A Ferrari

The ‘D’ teased by Tesla Motors boss Elon Musk is finally official. It’s the D variant of the Model S sedan, with twin electric motors and all-wheel drive. It’s an especially high-tech car, but one particular number in the specifications caught my eye — hitting 100km/h in 3.2 seconds, the Model S P85D can out-pace a Ferrari F430 or a V10 Dodge Viper.


Ford Sync AppLink Brings Safe Driving And Your Smartphone Together

A big problem with drivers on the road in Australia, at least in my own anecdotal experience, is everyone sneakily looking down at their smartphones when they’re driving and tapping away. They’re usually changing tracks on Spotify, choosing new podcasts, or checking the quickest directions to their lunchtime date.

Who doesn’t like a maths pop quiz when driving down to the Mexican border?
