Samsung envisions a Smart Windshield for motorcycles

Samsung envisions a Smart Windshield for motorcycles

We are becoming more and more connected to the Internet and, by extension, to our smartphones. In practice, this usually means we often keep our eyes on or devices. But now where is this habit more dangerous than when driving down the road, whether on four wheels or two. Most major car makers these days have employed several technologies, like projection and HUDs, to keep drivers' eyes on the road. Samsung is trying to do the same, but this time for motorbikes instead of cars.

Jeep concept features the 707HP V8 engine from Dodge Hellcat

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Easter Jeep Safari event, where Jeep and off-road enthusiasts gather in the desert in Moab, Utah, the car maker will be showing off a handful of special concept Jeep models. While Jeep has presented concepts to the thousands of participants in the past, this year they've pulled out all the stops on one particular vehicle. Dubbed the Trailcat, it's a Jeep Wrangler that has been outfitted with the 707hp 6.2-liter V8 engine from Dodge's Challenger SRT Hellcat.

BMW Vision Next 100 concept promises driving and autonomy balance

BMW Vision Next 100 concept promises driving and autonomy balance

BMW may be embracing self-driving cars, but it's not giving up on its "Ultimate Driving Machine" heritage with a new concept coupe that promises a future where both are on offer. The BMW Vision Next 100 helps mark the German automaker's centenary in 2016, a "highly customized vehicle" which, so BMW says, would be "perfectly tailored" to individual drivers and the various stages of their journey.

Toyota all-wood Setsuna concept to appear at Milan Design Week

Japanese car makers have been on a roll lately with concepts or art projects that combine their vehicles with unusual materials — Lexus made a car entirely out of cardboard, then another had wheels made of ice, while Nissan went with a life-size origami model. Now it's Toyota's turn, and they're not coming up short. They've just announced their Setsuna concept, a car made from wood, which will be revealed at Milan Design Week in April.

Goodyear unveils spherical concept tires for autonomous cars

Goodyear unveils spherical concept tires for autonomous cars

Goodyear has taken the wraps off two new concept tires designed specifically for autonomous vehicles. The most interesting of the two is the Eagle-360, a spherical concept tire that can move in any direction using, in part, a magnetic levitation system. As exciting as the Eagle-360 is, it isn’t reasonable for the upcoming fleet of self-driving cars. To meet present-day needs, Goodyear has also introduced its new IntelliGrip concept tires.

FlexEnable’s sci-fi wearable previews a flexible display future

FlexEnable’s sci-fi wearable previews a flexible display future

Flexible displays may be a mainstay of science-fiction, but it's only recently that they've started to filter through into production. FlexEnable hopes to overshadow Samsung's curved OLED with its own technology, relying on cheaper LCD panels that use plastic substrates rather than glass so as to be both more imaginatively-shaped and more resilient to impacts and other damage.

This is Renault’s stunning Alpine Vision Concept

This is Renault’s stunning Alpine Vision Concept

As halo cars go, the Renault Alpine Vision Concept is certainly striking, but can resurrecting the storied nameplate really drive the French automaker back into success? To give Renault its dues, it's certainly committed: back in late 2012, when the company said it would bring Alpine back from the dead as the go-to car for driving enthusiasts, the skepticism was palpable.

Scion’s most interesting car will survive Toyota’s axe

Scion’s most interesting car will survive Toyota’s axe

Scion may be dead, but the company's most interesting car - and potentially the most important - of recent years will live on. Toyota's axe falls heavy on the youth-centric brand, folding it back into its behemoth parent amid mediocre sales and an audience less swayed by a brash badge and more by cost-effectiveness, imaginative models, and reliability and resale value.

Opel GT Concept is as red hot as its tires

Opel GT Concept is as red hot as its tires

Germany's Opel has officially unveiled its new GT Concept, a modern re-imagining of the original Opel GT, a sport car legend produced from 1968 to 1973. The new version stays true to its roots, with rear-wheel drive, a low-slung profile, and a long hood that flows into a fastback rear end. But completely modern design details include a windshield that stretches from the front of the car to the back in a single piece of panorama glass, the appearance of no side windows, and, of course, those bright red front tires.

The X-Wing vs TIE-Fighter game reboot you wish we had

The X-Wing vs TIE-Fighter game reboot you wish we had

Today we're having a peek at a game that we'd love to see come to fruition: X-Wing vs TIE-Fighter (modern). This new game would be one that builds on the excellence that were the first X-Wing and TIE-fighter games, coming correct with not only new graphics, but fully updated gaming models, including multi-screen interaction and the possibility of virtual reality gameplay. Now that you can get the original games after 20 years (now released through GOG, completely DRM-free and offline if you wish), we've got a hankering to get back in the cockpit.
