Nissan wants to cut the rate of accidents by 50% by the year 2015. And in order to do that, they have developed an accident-avoiding robot called the BR23C, which stands for Biomimetic Car Robot Drive. And the company's inspiration for the bots? Bees.
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.
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.
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.
