The Jaguar I-PACE got loose, and even British weather can’t overshadow it

Somebody let the big electric cat off its leash. The Jaguar I-PACE isn't expected to roll into dealerships until the second half of 2018, but the British car company couldn't resist taking it for a spin - in prototype form, at least - on the public roads on its home turf. Turns out, even grim, overcast London can't cast too much of a shadow on what's set to be Jaguar's most important car in decades.

Behold, an “iPhone 8 Edition” with Google Goggles inside

Behold, an “iPhone 8 Edition” with Google Goggles inside

An iPhone 8 Edition without a border and with augmented reality abilities never seen before on an Apple device would make a great device. Further, it'd allow sense to come of the comments Tim Cook has made in the past about augmented reality. Not that they didn't make sense on their own, but here in a concept iPhone X (X representing the unknown) without a visible bezel, Siri can shine, and the possibilities can create a whole new value proposition for the end consumer.

Audi Q8 sport concept teases world-first hybrid tech

What if I told you that you could have the luxury of a big SUV, the performance of a V8, but the economy of a four-cylinder?

And, while they may be saying "mild", this is no shy, retiring truck for the school run.

Ford ‘Autolivery’ concept: an autonomous van with a delivery drone

Ford ‘Autolivery’ concept: an autonomous van with a delivery drone

Ford envisions a future in which autonomous electric vans will work alongside drones to deliver items to people located in urban areas. Calling it the ‘autolivery’ concept, the idea here is that self-driving cars could be used to deliver packages, but it would require a little something extra — something to get the package to where it needs to go, places a van isn’t likely able to access, and without the use of a human.

Samsung C-Lab to bring four VR/AR ideas to MWC 2017

Another tech show, another chance for Samsung to boast about how it fosters and cultivates innovation among its employees through incubation programs like its C-Lab, formerly Creative Lab. At MWC 2017, with less attention paid to its absent Galaxy S8, Samsung could put more focus on four concepts that aim to push the envelope of virtual reality as well as augmented reality.
