Tesla Demands Return to Obama Fueling Restrictions, Reasons Obvious

Tesla is demanding the reinstatement of a 2016 Obama regulation that more than doubles penalties for manufacturers who fail to adhere to fuel efficiency requirements. Gee, I wonder why it would do such a thing.

Tool Time: A Yamaha SR500 built by a machine tool company

There’s nothing unusual about building a custom motorcycle with the primary purpose of taking it to a show. But what if the show in question has absolutely nothing to do with custom motorcycles? That’s a cool twist. This sharply styled Yamaha SR500 flat tracker is the pet project of 27-year-old Maxime Fontvielle. He’s an application engineer at the French operation of the US machine tool company, Hurco—a career he got into thanks to a love of two wheelers. “When I was a teenager,” he tells...

Safety-glass windshields offer a new opportunity for suppliers, manufacturers and startups that are starting to adapt this technology: AR overlays digital information or images on what a user sees in the real world, while VR creates a seemingly real experience that changes as they move through it. The potential for monetizing AR/VR is hamstrung ...

Baton raises $10.5M to create ‘drop zones,’ where truckers can hand off freight

In the trucking industry, “dwell and detention” times are the enemies of efficiency, profits and drivers. More than two billion hours are lost each year due to dwell —the time spent at a distribution yard or facility — and detention — the gap between when unloading or loading is supposed to begin and when it actually does. Baton, a San Francisco-based startup developed out of 8VC’s incubator program, has developed a business that it believes will solve these long-standing problems truckers. The ...

Ultimate Level Up: Inside The Futuristic Lexus Gamers’ IS

What you see here is the Lexus Gamers’ IS. It is a one-off, custom show car. Lexus will not be putting this thing into production. To which, we, the gearheads, can be eternally thankful.
