Audi skysphere concept EV literally stretches and shrinks

Audi is no stranger to bedazzling concept cars, but few stretch the imagination quite like the new Audi skysphere.

Why is this weird iPhone 13 M1 concept so compelling?

There's an iPhone 13 M1 concept phone making the rounds this week with a design that's quite odd. The design sits on the edge of a nightmare, pushing the top of the phone up on one half, while the other stays down, making room for a set of front-facing cameras and/or sensors. If this concept were done with less finesse, it would be pretty easy to dismiss. But for some reason, it looks amazing.

Audi A6 e-tron Concept barely hides its all-electric production future

Audi has revealed its latest vision of electrification, the Audi A6 e-tron Concept, and once again we're seeing a very thinly-veiled tease of an important production model in the not-too-distant future.
