$1 Million Street Legal Tumbler Batmobile


1-Million-Street-Legal-Batman-Tumbler

When it comes to supercars, we’re not sure there’s anything out there that even compares to Batman’s Tumbler. For the first time ever, fans of the Dark Knight can own their very own street legal Tumbler. Although it’s equipped with a V8 LS1 motor, the RWD Batmobile probably won’t compete with a similarly priced supercar. But, what it lacks in performance, it makes up in sheer awesomeness. The vehicle has been outfitted with everything Bruce Wayne would need to fight crime including five driver-assisted cameras, GPS, and 44″ swamper tires to tackle rough terrain. The 2-seater definitely requires a Bruce Wayne size bank account though, as this Tumbler is currently on the market for a cool $1 million.

Garmin have announced the D2 Pilot watch, an ultra-slick, wrist-friendly GPS watch designed for pilots. It includes all the basic features on other old-school aviator watches, but offers other features gadget-hungry pilots will appreciate. You can load a flight plan on it and check GPS ground speed, GPS track, distance, estimated route time, bearing, glide ratio, and more. The wrist-sized GPS also finds the nearest airport if you need to land quickly and allows you to remotely control Garmin’s HD action camera, VIRB.

Mercedes-Benz experimenting with Google Glass

Mercedes-Benz’s North American R&D chief claims the ultimate goal is to use Google’s head-worn computer to create a seamless GPS system. Despite the fact that Gary C. Howell, a member of the West Virginia House of Delegates, is currently trying to pass a bill that would make them illegal while driving, Mercedes-Benz’s US research and development arm is hard at work developing in-car applications for Google Glass. In an interview with Business Journal this week, Johann Jungwirth, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America, says that the company’s ultimate goal is to create a “seamless” door-to-door transition between pedestrian directions and in-car GPS. The idea being that the information displayed via the headset automatically switches from in-car navigation to on-foot directions the moment the driver kills the engine and alights from his or her luxury German sedan. The contextual awareness of Google Glass would mean that a destination would only have to be entered once to cover the journey, no matter how many different forms of transport were required to arrive at a destination. As a device, Google Glass is still also very much in its own R&D phase. Only a handful of the headsets are ‘in the wild’ and they mostly belong to developers who are busy getting to grips with what the wearable computer can do and how they can best exploit its features via specially created apps. Google is yet to confirm when a consumer-ready Google Glass will hit the shops other than to say some time in late 2014.

With all this great features the Watch The Future concept also keeps some basic functions of a watch, like keeping you updated with the current time.  Theinnovative watch concept would keep the application you use most at easy access, and would even change the icons location on the strap according to the position of your wrist. Some of the other features available on this innovative concept are the possibility to track your pulse and even your emotions. Depending on how you wear the bracelet the icons location on the strap changes. This concept sounds really interesting. Watch the Future smartphone wrist control concept is exactly what you need.
