That's Sir Ed in the middle and there's more info on the mural and the portraits here: [Author: Andrew Thomson]

Elon Musk argues comments on Twitter are protected speech in request to dismiss ‘pedo guy’ lawsuit

Elon Musk has filed a motion to dismiss a defamation lawsuit filed against him by the British cave rescuer who sued the billionaire entrepreneur for calling him a pedophile. Musk’s motion presents numerous reasons to dismiss the defamation lawsuit, all of which come back to a two main points: Twitter is “ infamous for invective and hyperbole,” and therefore should not be considered fact and these “imaginative attacks,” even if offensive, “ are by their nature opinion and protected by the First ...

Goodbye Keys! Hello Hyundai’s Fingerprint Technology

Hyundai’s technology allows drivers to unlock and start their vehicle with their fingerprints. An on-board security system helps determine the driver’s actual prints to prevent theft. The technology is another example of how consumers want a vehicle to fit their lifestyle.   It sounds like something out of science fiction. Like those movies where the crew, in order to open the hatch to the spaceship’s next corridor, place their hands on a blue-lit screen. Hyundai is now using that Hollywood ma...

Double Trouble: Hot Chop’s twin-engined Harley drag bike

Squeezing two Harley engines into one chassis is a special form of lunacy, most commonly found in the drag racing scene in the USA. In the glory days of the mid-70s, Bonnie Truett linked a pair of Sportster motors and nitro-injected them. A decade later, Elmer Trett built an even faster twin-engined bike: the ‘Freight Train,’ which ran the quarter mile in under seven seconds. Despite the wealth of tuning talent in Japan, no double-engined Harley has been built there—until now. Kentaro Na...

2018 Volkswagen Golf S Review – Make Commuting Fun Again

Commuting sucks. It’s especially bad at speeds below “parking lot.” Foot off brake, crawl, foot on brake, repeat. It’s even worse when you’re piloting a stick – shift to first, release clutch pedal, roll, brake, clutch in, shift to neutral. And repeat. Not all commuting is that slow, of course. There’s also the block-to-block drag […] The post 2018 Volkswagen Golf S Review – Make Commuting Fun Again appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Bugatti’s 3D Printed Brake Caliper and Its Implications

The Future of Automotive and Motorcycle Manufacturing? I grew up around tool and die makers, machinists, and other people working in the trades. When I think of building or manufacturing things, I think of taking a piece of raw material, reducing it down, bending, and crafting it into the desired item. Additive manufacturing, which is exactly what 3D printing is, isn’t my first thought when it comes to manufacturing. Instead of removing material to make a piece you add material slowly to create...
