Florida Mall Crowd Riots Over Glow-In-The-Dark Nikes [Wtf]

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

The tips of our fingers are numb from typing, we’re seeing 55-inch OLEDs in our sleep (when we can get it) and we haven’t eaten a green vegetable in over a week, all in the interest of bringing you the biggest news from the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show. If you haven’t been glued here since Sunday afternoon, we’ve put a Distro-flavored bow on our coverage for you. Following up on our first CES special edition, issue 23 collects the biggest breakouts from days four and five, and pulls together a collection of our favorite photos of the robots, autos and crapgadgets we peeped on the floor. Also in this issue, Box Brown brings you a cautionary comic, Ross Rubin talks app stores and Don Melanson recaps the week’s best writing from around the web. We’re going to submerge ourselves in an isolation tank now, but we’d recommend you download this very special edition, published live from a parking lot at the LVCC.

Geely McCar comes with an electric scooter for people who hate walking

Monday, April 25th, 2011
Find the use of your legs inconvenient? Behold the Geely McCar, an ultra compact, two-door car that still manages to tuck an electric scooter in the back. Geely, the Chinese company that now owns Volvo, is hoping you’ll use it for everything from golfing to navigating urban sprawl to traversing the Mall of America parking lot (and then escorting yourself to the Cinnabon once you’re inside). The car itself comes in two versions: an all-electric one with a 12kWh battery that claims up to 93 miles on a charge, and a hybrid iteration that promises up to 31 miles on just electric power and 373 on a mix of gas and electricity. The scooter, meanwhile, can last up to 18 miles — and be swapped out for a wheelchair for people with disabilities. Since debuting at the Shanghai Auto Show, there’s been no word on whether the McCar will ship stateside, why this arrangement beats packing your own scooter — or how much McDonald’s loathes that name.

Imperia plug-in hybrid does 0 – 60 in four seconds, looks classy while doing it

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

If you’re tired of hybrids like the Prius or Volt, cars that could easily get lost in a Hertz parking lot, check out the GP. It’s the first and only product from resurrected Belgian auto maker Imperia, which previously operated in the early 20th century, but other than the pronounced front grille offers little resemblance to its forbears either above or below that pronounced bonnet. It has an inline four cylinder turbo engine offering 212hp that’s paired with a 134hp electric engine, itself backed by a Li-polymer battery pack. It’ll do about 45 miles on batteries alone but, more importantly, will roll the 0 – 60mph sprint in under four seconds. Or, at least, it will if it ever hits production. A concept of the car was unveiled at the Brussels Auto Show, but it’s anyone’s guess when it might actually hit the road for reals.
