DeLorean Aerospace DR-7 VTOL makes good on Doc Brown’s promise

One of the most iconic movies from the '80s was "Back to the Future" and in that original film, just when we think all is well with McFly and his hottie, Doc Brown comes back in a much more futuristic DeLorean time machine and famously tells Marty that where they are going, they don't need roads. DeLorean Aerospace has now made good on Doc's promise and had unveiled the DR-7 VTOL (DR-7? I see what you did there) and it is a flying machine.

Kitty Hawk’s flying car flies, floats, but doesn’t roll

Silicon Valley is often credited for defining and redefining many things, and it seems it is set to redefine what a "car" is. One that can fly in air, float on water, but not drive on land.

Ford SmartDeviceLink poised to become industry standard for car apps

Ford SmartDeviceLink poised to become industry standard for car apps

Vehicle infotainment systems pretty much experience that same somewhat isolated and dispersed situation that the IoT industry is experiencing. With cars, however, the problem is less pronounced, perhaps because of fewer but stronger players. Still, standardization can still go a long way in pushing new technologies and new lifestyles forward, which is why Ford is offering its SmartDeviceLink software even to its rivals, with Toyota as one of the first to commit to it.

Target joins Amazon in pulling hoverboards from shelves
