Mitsubishi eX Concept brings augmented reality to the windshield

Mitsubishi isn't waiting until the Tokyo Motor Show later this month to announce it newest crossover SUV concept, the eX. While it may feature a somewhat edgy, futuristic exterior design that will surely be reeled-in before ever hitting a consumer vehicle, it's actually the technology on the inside that Mitsubishi is showing off. Instead of using a heads-up display that we're seeing more often in cars these days, the eX Concept features a windshield enhanced with augmented reality (AR).

Mitsubishi EMIRAI 3 xDAS concept can sense drivers’ condition

Not all car makers have completely jumped aboard the self-driving train. Some have preferred to stay on the periphery, slowly adding features that make cars smarter while still putting the driver in complete control. Mitsubishi's latest concept car is one such example of the latter.

Japanese scientists are making special plastic beer bottles

Beer, you may have noticed, never comes in a plastic bottle (excepting certain circumstances).

It'll go flat too soon, the flavor will be affected, and depending on how it is stored, the bottles may leech chemicals into the beer, raising health concerns. All those issues, though, will soon be behind us.

Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV eyes-on

With the Mitsubishi Motors Concept XR-PHEV, the LA Auto Show 2014 sees a slick plug-in-hybrid electric vehicle drivetrain paired with high-end, bold styling - in bright red, of course.
