Detachable RV May Be the Next Step in Recreational Technology

It's been a little while since we have seen anything on the RV side of the house, but after a little searching, something turned up that could easily be the future of recreational vehicle production. Of particular interest is the attention that was placed on keeping it as environmentally friendly as possible.

New Kind of Shock Could Extend the Range of Electric Vehicles

In the never ending search for ways to make vehicles more efficient, any component large or small can become the next big step in automotive technology. Such is the case with a new suspension system that uses the vertical motion of the vehicle to recapture energy.

Breath Into the Eco-box And Make Fuel

These days it seems everything can be turned into fuel: cooking oil, garbage, corn, algae, etc. I never imaged an airport full of people's breaths could be converted into fuel too. If the idea seems a little far-fetched, it isn't. The breaths we exhale could one day be recycled into fuel. Liverpool John Lennon Airport, in Liverpool, U.K will be the first to test the idea this year, with the Eco-box.

Back in 2002 Audi released an in car multimedia system called MMI that, at the time, was considered by many to be one of the most user friendly in car systems on the market.

Mitsubishi Will Join the Electric Sports Car Race

While electric vehicles have become an everyday topic for most automakers, all electric sports cars have yet to become mainstream. Dodge recently unveiled the Circuit to the world and Mitsubishi may be next, with a sportier version of the i MiEV slated to be introduced at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

Nissan Developing New Safety System to Keep Traffic Flowing in the Right Direction

Automakers have been spending millions of dollars developing ways to make everyday driving safer and more enjoyable. However, in most cases new vehicles can only be equipped with features that monitor how you drive and what is around you. This ultimately leaves it up to the other motorist to pay attention to what is around them, which we know doesn't always happen. The good news is, Nissan is developing a system that should help you to avoid those drivers that are "lacking in skill" behind the wheel and hopefully an expensive repair bill.
