This College Student Turned His Honda Civic Into a Self-Driving Car for $700

Apparently you don’t need to fork out for a brand new Tesla model if you want the benefits of a self-driving car, because a college student from the University of Nebraska, Omaha, has figured out how to transform his Honda Civic into a self-driving car for only $700. Brevan Jorgenson used open source plans and software that he downloaded from the Internet to build a self-driving car kit that’s capable of controlling his vehicle’s brakes, steering, and accelerator, and can sense obstructions and other cars on the road around it….

Deal of the year? Used Fiat 500e electric cars at $6,500?

It’s well known by now that the used-car prices of low-range electric cars are low. Any 2011 through 2016 electric car not made by Tesla is likely to be cheap on a used-car lot due to worries about battery degradation and its effect on range. Used Nissan Leafs, for instance, can often be found for around $9,000, even with only 30,000 or 40,000 miles—thousands of dollars less than a used gasoline Nissan of the same age and mileage. Now, it appears that the earliest of several thousand Fiat 500e electric…

Faraday Future’s vision of tomorrow is not the future we were expecting. Based on the company’s utopian teaser video, we were prepared for a sexier take on Google’s koala pod. A Tesla Model S fighter wouldn’t have surprised us, either, given all of the hype comparing Faraday Future with Silicon Valley’s darling Tesla. Or maybe the company would launch with a sleek-but-sensible sports car. Among the long list of possibilities, though, we never predicted something as radical as the Faraday Future FFZERO1 concept, a fully electric, single-seat supercar with no…

RESEARCHERS ACCIDENTALLY MAKE BATTERIES LAST 400 TIMES LONGER

The gel surrounding the gold nanowires with manganese oxide coating protects from corrosion, allowing the battery to last 400 times more cycles. Smartphones, tablets, and most other electronics rely on rechargeable batteries, but after a few thousand uses the batteries start to lose their ability to hold a charge. The batteries of today are mainly lithium, and over time that lithium corrodes inside the battery. Instead of lithium, researchers at UC Irvine have used gold nanowires to store electricity, and have found that their system is able to far outlast…
