Is Drone Racing the High-Speed Sport of the Future?

Images courtesy of the Drone Racing League Competitive drone racing feels like a video game come to life. Flying robots zoom through space at speeds pushing 80 miles per hour, navigating enormous courses laid out in subway tunnels, abandoned buildings, and NFL stadiums. Drone pilots have the reflexes of seasoned gamers and the technical know-how of aerospace engineers. They fly via remote control, using virtual reality goggles that stream video live from onboard cameras. On January 26, the  ...

Startup’s self-driving test car crashes after driver takes control

A test vehicle for Cruise Automation, a California startup that wants to build an autonomous driving "kit" that can be installed on existing cars, was involved in a minor car accident in San Francisco earlier this month. It’s not entirely clear if it was caused by a malfunction of the self-driving system or driver error, but it seems likely that the accident isn’t one that would occur in a production-quality autonomous car. It happened just after an emergency takeover  ...

The Cutting-Edge of Cool: 2016 Range Rover Evoque

There’s some kind of aura that comes into play while you’re commanding a new Range Rover. Actually, I take that back. The prestige factor is deafeningly apparent, but it’s more than just the name that makes the Range Rover a high end make. You can sense the hundreds of thousands of hours spent defining its visually captivating design, and presumably more building the advanced technology that compliments it. You can notably feel the confidence slipping off every curve. This  ...

I’ve always admired Volkswagen’s advertising though, but I think the allure has more to do with their premier German engineering that really sets the bar high for nearly every other auto manufacturer on the block. With all that magic and expectation that Volkswagen has put me on, I’m happy to say that the 2014  ...

The New 2014 Toyota Corolla: Why It Isn’t Your Father’s Car Anymore

A few weeks ago I was invited to catch a preview of the new 2014 Toyota Corolla. Like most people, I had a ton of concern regarding how new, exciting, and sexy this car could be. I mean, it’s a Corolla. We grew up to boring parents driving us to church in it. Those beige colours gleaming proudly as they park in front of our schools among all the other nondescript cars. In case it has never occurred to you, Corolla’s cache of non-descript automobiles in the past two decades is  ...
