The AWIRE keeps two-way radio communications at the ready

Mobile phones are great, but they're not ideal for every communications needs. When you're skiing down a mountain, the last thing you want to do is carve to a stop, dig around your triple-layer winterwear for your phone, and answer just to hear your buddy tell you he's waiting in the lodge – which is where you were skiing down to to meet him. The AWIRE wearable two-way radio promises to deliver that type of conversation in mere seconds so you can get on with your life. It also pairs with your smartphone to route calls and music directly to your ears.  Read More

The Lincoln Continental debuts at the 2015 NY Auto Show

All eyes may have been on the Cadillac CT6 at this year's New York Auto Show, but next year the luxury market will likely be more focused on its rival, the new Lincoln Continental. Lincoln previewed the type of "quiet luxury" it has in mind for its forthcoming flagship at this year's NY show. The simply named Continental Concept departs sharply from Lincoln's current design language and promises to bring some past cachet back to the Continental nameplate with a slew of luxury and technology amenities.  Read More

The Horizon MCV includes an outdoor awning and pop-up roof sleeping area

The all-new Horizon Multi Concept Vehicle isn't the first camper van based on the new Mercedes Vito – we've already seen the Terra Camper Tecamp, for one – but it is purportedly the first such camper made in the UK. The new camper van is designed to adeptly straddle the fence between everyday family van and holiday camper. A host of quick-converting interior amenities help it achieve that duality.  Read More

The Aircross has a floating roof with glass panel

Whether it's the compressed air of Peugeot Citroën's Hybrid Air powertrain, or the raft of air channeling aerodynamic upgrades on concepts like the C4 Cactus Airflow, air mixes freely with concept car design at Citroën. The all-new Aircross Concept keeps the trend alive and packages air friendly-design into a larger utility vehicle. The concept also highlights some interesting new interior entertainment and communication technologies.  Read More

The new 70D trim combines front and rear motors with a 70-kWh battery pack

Since launching back in 2012, the Tesla Model S has gotten more powerful, more capable and more expensive. That trend continues with the all-new 70D all-wheel-drive trim, which replaces the rear-wheel-drive 60 trim as the entry-level model in the lineup, adding US$5,000 to the lowest price of Tesla ownership while increasing performance across the board.  Read More

The Endure has everything you need to start a flame: ferro rod, striker and tinder

Multi-tool pens may not be quite as popular as multi-tool pocket knives or even multifunctional smartphone cases, but there is a small yet lively market of pens that can also save your hide in dicey situations. The Endure Survival Pen is one of the latest, putting a tiny flare launcher, fire starter and other emergency tools inside your shirt pocket.  Read More

Tailgating with the folding GoBQ

There are many portable tailgating grills on the market, but not many of them are compact enough to fold into a backpack or shoulder bag and carry by foot. The all-new GoBQ uses a foldable fabric construction to offer just that type of light, ultra-portable transport. You can use the grill to cook up lunch or dinner anywhere your feet can take you.  Read More

Revology shows its Mustang that blends old and new at the Amelia Island Concours d'Eleganc...

We've seen a lot of boutique revivalists in the auto industry in recent years, companies that revive true-to-original or retro-inspired car bodies with advanced modern powertrain and cabin technologies. Over the course of 2014 and 2015, we've taken a look at the classic-Mustang-inspired Equus Bass, the all-electric Shelby-based Renovo Coupe, and now the Revology Mustang. This post-modern reinterpretation of the iconic first-generation Mustang includes a full suite of the latest features.  Read More

Buddy Boxes mounted inside a van

In recent years, we've seen many modular camper conversions and camper-in-a-box kits. The hardware can transform an average, everyday vehicle into an overnight recreational vehicle, then be removed when the road trip is over, leaving the base vehicle ready to drop the kids off at school and make the commute to work. Designed by German architect, carpenter and all-around garage tinkerer Gerhard Euchenhofer, the BuddyBox represents an even smaller, more flexible modular conversion option. Not only can BuddyBoxes convert your van into a full camper, they can make it a tailgating party wagon, a picnic in the park, a sports support vehicle and more. When the trip's over, remove the BuddyBoxes and you have your standard-spec van back.  Read More
