Kiwi Bluetooth Android Phone Car Diagnostic Kit

Check Engine? WTF does that mean?

  • Connect your Android phone to your car wirelessly
  • Run diagnostics, check fuel economy, tons more
  • Works on any car model 1996 or newer

If you’re not a car geek, the light that says “CHECK ENGINE” might as well say “PC LOAD LETTER.” Sure, we can open the hood and verify that indeed, the engine is still present, but beyond that, we’re a little lost. Best we can do is drive it to the garage and hope that we don’t get totally bamboozled by the mechanic again. We already bought the anti-unicorn disinfectant treatment once! It’s supposed to protect the air filter from glitter for life, right?

Biofuel Skycar headed for production in 2010

silver parajet skycar

skycar



Earlier this year, the Parajet Skycar Expedition, featuring the “World’s First Bio-fuelled Flying Car,” flew from London, England to Timbuktu in Mali, Africa. If you lusted over something so incredibly cool – a car that can transform from ground to air mode in about three minutes and actually works in both areas, then we’ve got good news for you: Parajet International Ltd has struck a deal to produce road-legal SkyCars with Rage Motorsport Ltd.

Rage will build the vehicle and Parajet will add all the parts that make it fly. A mock-up of the vehicle is pictured here, but Parajet says a “totally new chassis is being designed for the SkyCar which accommodates the rear fan system into the tubular chassis work.” This will reduce weight by about 80 kg (176 lbs). Other changes are to include a re-positioned rear parachute, more legroom and a three-cylinder, 140 horsepower fuel-injected Yamaha engine. How long will you have to wait for one? Parajet says test flights of the skycar should happen this September and the release date could be early 2010.

This cell phone amplifier is dual band (800 MHZ and 1900 MHZ), which means it is compatible with all of the cellular networks (except iDEN and Nextel).

The increased signal will help to ensure that you will receive all those important calls and emails being sent to your cell phone.

It also works with your smartphone, PDA and wireless data card. The best part is that your phone stays wireless, there is no direct wiring, so multiple users can enjoy the added benefits of this signal amplifier.

Tesla Motor Electric Car 244 Mile Range 0-60 in 2.7 seconds

teslacar  Tesla Motor Electric Car 244 Mile Range 0-60 in 2.7 seconds

Acceleration & Torque

Instant Freedom

The first time you drive the Tesla Roadster, prepare to be surprised. You’re at freeway speed in seconds without even thinking about it. There is no clutch pedal to contend with and no race-car driving techniques to perform. Just the touch of your foot and you’re off, without any of the sluggishness of an automatic.

How powerful is the acceleration? A quick story to illustrate. A favorite trick here at Tesla Motors is to invite a passenger along and ask him to turn on the radio. At the precise moment we ask, we accelerate. Our passenger simply can’t sit forward enough to reach the dials. But who needs music when you’re experiencing such a symphony of motion.

Rest assured that this responsiveness works at all speeds, as noticeable when you’re inching your way through parking lots as when flying along freeways.

100% Torque, 100% of the Time

The Tesla Roadster delivers full availability of performance every moment you are in the car, even while at a stoplight. Its peak torque begins at 0 rpm and stays powerful at 14,000 rpm.

This is the precise opposite of what you experience with a gasoline engine, which has very little torque at a low rpm and only reaches peak torque in a narrow rpm range. This forces you to make frequent gear changes to maintain optimal torque. With the Tesla Roadster, you get great acceleration and the highest energy efficiency at the same time. All while requiring no special driving skills to enjoy it. This makes the Tesla Roadster six times as efficient as the best sports cars while producing one-tenth of the pollution.
