The Daily Slash: April 5th 2010

Welcome to the Daily Slash. If this is your first time 'round these parts, doubly welcome! We're happy to bring you the latest and greatest in the tech news every day, but some times we can't fit it all in the normal flow of the work day. So, here's our friendly wrap-up, where we even manage to wrap it up in a bow tie (if you wish hard enough). Tonight, we've got The Best of R3 Media to start off the night (a brand new feature that we're adding to the Daily Slash from here on out). And then, as we jump into the meat and bones, we'll take a look at a website that makes picking your seats for your next Major League Baseball game so much easier. Next, a jacket that's made for your iPad, a car of the future, and we finally have some good news for the company that brought us webOS. So, let's get crackin'.

Nissan makes GPS navigation a cheap option on popular cars

Nissan makes GPS navigation a cheap option on popular cars

We can all add GPS to our cars if we want by schlepping down to the local electronics store and paying anywhere from $70 to $500 depending on the features and brand you choose. Add on GPS systems work just fine for the most part, but there is no denying the fact that any add on GPS device is nowhere near as visually appealing as one built-in from the factory.

Nissan Land Glider leaning electric car concept [Video]

After Shane flagged up a couple of interesting and definitely distinctive electric cars yesterday, it only seemed fair to counter with this: Nissan's Land Glider concept.  Reminiscent of the VentureOne tilting trike, the twin-seater Land Glider leans into turns to avoid falling over, and is blessed with one of the coolest cockpits we've seen in some time (you can see it in the gallery after the cut).

Nissan dealers to use ICP Solar Battery Chargers

Nissan dealers to use ICP Solar Battery Chargers

Cars, especially new ones that sit on the lot have a tendency to kill batteries.  Which is due to all of the embedded electronics that suck juice even when the car isn't in use.  Well for car dealers it can become a bit of a nuisance to have to replace batteries all the time.

Therefore Nissan has decided to use ICP solar chargers just for that purpose.  They will be sending them to the Nissan dealers in North American and Europe.

When it comes to cars I’m pretty happy as long as it runs. However, I’ve always been a bit partial to minivans over other vehicles because I have a big family. Nissan has given me yet another reason to add to my list of why minivans rule.

Nissan’s Paramagnetic paint

The days of "car color envy" are gone. Nissan has developed a new type of paint that allows you to change the color of your car with the flip of a switch. An electric current runs through the Paramagnetic paint changing the color to your desired shade, or mood.

Nissan 2007 Mobile Office

Nissan 2007 Mobile Office

Somehow I don’t think this is what Luda’ had in mind when he said “Roll Out”. The back of this fairly appealing vehicle rolls out to expose a lot of underwater photography gear, as well as a mobile office on the inside.

Speaking of niche markets, anyways, the downside is the two are exclusive, you can’t keep the scuba gear tucked away and just use the office, you have to roll the back out in order to gain access to the office part. Overall it looks pretty amazing for a concept, or more likely proof-of-concept car.
