A recent patent application details how its R1 self-driving vehicle could carry smaller robots to cross lawns or climb stairs to drop off packages. The company has even taken the step of trademarking the name “Fido” for delivery services. “We think there’s something neat about that name,” Nuro founder Dave Ferguson told TechCrunch. “It’s friendly, neigh...

Bull-it SP120 LITE Jeans Review: A Slim Fit for the Ride

Introduction It appears I have become the “riding jeans” guys over the past several years here at WebBikeWorld.com. I’m not certain how this happened but I’m here today with yet another review of, you guessed it, motorcycle riding jeans.

Meet the tiny startup that helped build Amazon’s Scout robot

When Amazon unveiled a six-wheeled urban delivery robot called Scout a couple of weeks ago, its website was pretty definitive about who was behind it. “These devices were created by Amazon,” the page reads . “We developed Amazon Scout at our research and development lab in Seattle.” But that is only part of the story, TechCrunch has discovered. Some of the intellectual property and technology behind Scout likely came from farther afield – a small San Francisco startup called Dispatch ...

Alpinestars Apex Drystar Gloves Hands-On Review

It’s easy enough to make a cheap motorbike glove. There are plenty of them already on the market. Take some cheap leather, or polyester fabric, add some plastic armor at the knuckles, some Velcro at the cuff, and you’re almost there to having a ready-made motorbike glove. It’s a lot tougher to make a quality motorbike glove that actually goes some way to keeping a rider comfortable, warm, dry, and protected in the event of a crash. Quality Design On a good quality glove the fabric mix is diffe...

The Shark Spartan Helmet Review

Introduction It’s been a while since webBikeWorld reviewed a helmet from Shark. In fact, it looks like it has been nearly five years since we reviewed the “Raw” helmet. Maybe part of the reason was that Shark went through some changes in USA distribution? Maybe it was just simply that Shark was never quite the “household” name in helmets here in the USA like other brands such as Shoei, HJC, and Arai. Whatever the case, I feel like the riders in the United States have largely missed out on one o...

2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe: Just Call Me “Mercedes”
