Blindfolded Bird Box Challenger crashes car

Remember, way back on January 2 when Netflix issued a warning to its customers over the viral meme to “PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE?” That warning wasn’t heard or followed by at least one 17-year-old in Utah who decided to give the challenge — which involves a blindfold — a whirl while driving. The result was what one might expect. There was a crash (hat tip CNN, which spotted the tweet from Layton Police). Bird Box Challenge while driving…predictable result...

Car Design Curiosities: This Oddball 1970s Porsche Station Wagon Looks Like Your Kid Drew It

Every classic car brand has their undesirable models, and for Porsche it's got to be the unloved 924 (or arguably, the similar 944). Intended as an entry-level Porsche--the gateway drug to get you into the brand--the 924 debuted in 1976 with Porsche's first automatic transmission and an aesthetically unfortunate beltline. We've just learned that in the 1980s, an aftermarket company called DP Motorsport took several 924s and converted them into "Porsche 924 DP Cargo" station wagons: ...

The Novus Electric Motorbike redefines the term ‘sleek’

One’s general perception of a motorbike is usually of two wheels, a headlamp, a large fuel tank behind it and an engine below the tank. There’s also a seat, a taillight, and while we’re on the subject of general perception, a chain. Shift to an e-motorcycle and some of those components may adapt to the change in technology. The fuel tank is replaced by a battery, and the motorcycle’s form gets revisited to make it look ‘electric’, but all in all, it still looks like a motorcycle. The Novus e-mot...

Nissan's "Invisible to Visible" AR Driving Safety System

I love having an all-wheel-drive turbo stickshift, but due to a recent close call, I've completely changed the way I drive. To explain, the roads where I live are all twisty country two-lanes. There's never any traffic nor kids in the road. I rarely even see other cars. So I've been driving like I'm in a car commercial, accelerating madly through curves, pushing the grip coefficient while the engine sings. But two months ago I came around a corner and spotted a tan flash of fur moving perpendicu...

A Bosozoku-inspired mini bike from Malaysia

When the Malaysian outfit FNG Works landed an entry in a local custom bike build-off, lead builder Irwann Cheng had a decision to make. Would he play it safe, or would he throw common sense to the wind, and go all-out? Looking at this bizarre little machine, it’s clear which way he went. The competition was the ‘Superb Mod Challenge,’ organized by Modenas and MotoNation. Never heard of Modenas? It’s a Malaysian bike brand, and they supplied their V15 model as a donor.
