Project ONE: SlashGear interviews AMG Head Tobias Moers

Almost all car makers have made promises about putting a street-legal race car on the road, by which they really mean a road car with race car power and speed. AMG, on the other hand, intends to put a literal one in consumer’s hands. At least that was the big splash it made in Frankfurt last September when it unveiled the Project ONE hypercar, which not only leave other road cars in its dust but even looked like an F1 speed demon. At the North America International Auto Show (NAIAS), Vincent Nguyen, SlashGear's Editor-in-Chief got a chance to sit with Tobias Moers, Chief Executive of AMG, to get his insight on Project ONE, electrifying the future, and, of course, the MBUX.

Lamborghini Urus: making a Super SUV possible

Lamborghini Urus: making a Super SUV possible

Lamborghini is a name mostly associated with sports cars. Or to be more specific, “super” sports cars. But once in a while, the marque decides to venture outside of its comfort zone, giving birth to vehicles like the LM002 “Lamborghini truck”. It is doing so once again, but, this time, it is pulling in all its history, its lessons, its heritage, what Lamborghini loves to call its “DNA”, to create a new car, even a new classification, for the modern market. That is the Urus, the world’s first ever, and so far only, “super” SUV.

Bitcoin is a gold rush: Profit short-term or go broke [Opinion]

Bitcoin is a gold rush: Profit short-term or go broke [Opinion]

Several opinion articles on Bitcoin this week compare the most popular cryptocurrency to Tulips. More specifically, Bitcoin was compared to Dutch Tulip Mania, an early example of a speculative bubble. Bitcoin value may end up in a decline like tulip bulbs were in 1637, but the takeaway is not just that Bitcoin and tulip bulbs are going to rise and fall for the same socioeconomic reasons. The most important takeaway is profit in the short-term - or so I've been told.

Trucks and SUVs give Detroit Auto Show 2018 its mojo

Trucks and SUVs give Detroit Auto Show 2018 its mojo

It should probably come as no surprise that in a city like Detroit, trucks dominated the auto show. All the same, with CES increasingly counting car news among its gadget pageantry just a week prior, there were questions from some quarters as to whether the North American International Auto Show 2018 would have any news left. Turns out, Detroit still had some aces up its sleeve, both domestic and foreign.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado adds tech, drops weight, snarks F-150

Chevrolet has whipped the covers off the new 2019 Silverado 1500, the company's latest pickup and arguably the most important truck in the American automaker's line-up. An eight-strong line-up, spanning work-focused through to performance, with premium features and advanced driver-assistance along the way, it's Chevy's retort to the F-150 and the product of more than 7m miles of testing by the time it arrives in dealerships.

Interview with Starkey’s Achin Bhowmik: technology that saves lives

SlashGear was invited to join Starkey's Hearing Innovation Expo, prior to this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is always a time to show off the latest innovations, the latest products, and the latest technologies for consumers and opportunities for potential business partners as well. But technology isn’t just about self-driving cars, talking speakers, or even the latest smartphones and connected televisions.

Lumus’ AR glasses are a vision even Apple could approve of

Lumus’ AR glasses are a vision even Apple could approve of

If the mass market is going to be successfully sold on the idea of wearing augmented reality glasses, it could do worse than look to Lumus for design inspiration. The transparent display firm is showing off its latest hardware at CES 2018 this week, flush from a recent deal with Taiwanese manufacturing heavyweight - and, conspicuously, Apple partner - Quanta. If you've been waiting (semi) patiently for consumer AR to arrive in a less geeky form-factor, there's some good news.

Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream hands-on: VR and the camera to shoot it

Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream hands-on: VR and the camera to shoot it

Right now there are two main types of virtual reality headsets, ones that are tethered to PCs and ones that need a smartphone to work. Either way, such headsets are beholden to another device running the show, which also prevents users from accessing said devices normally. Standalone VR headsets have long been a dream but, as far as Google’s Daydream platform is concerned, that almost failed to take shape. Lenovo has, fortunately, come to the rescue with the new Mirage Solo with Daydream standalone headset that promises freedom in more ways than one.
