Scare Away Intruders With This Home Security Concept That’s Literally Just a Shadow

Taking a page from Kevin McCallister’s playbook in Home Alone, a landlord in Tokyo has developed a novel way for residents who live alone to feel safer.

Supercar concept runs on electrolyte fluids

Alternative fuel cars are rarely pulse pounding thrill rides, but NanoFlowcell might have created an exception to the rule. It’s teasing the Quant 48Volt, a supercar concept that runs on a combination of positive and negative electrolyte fluids.

BMW 3.0 CSL HOMMAGE CONCEPT

The covers came off the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage concept at the 2015 Concorso d’Elegance Villa d’Este over the weekend, and there’s much more to the lime green two-door than that oversized rear wing. There’s a smaller, roof-mounted spoiler, also lime green. Plus more swoops and curves than we can count. Most of those are lime green as well. Add in a racing-inspired interior that manages to make room for a luxuriant swath of hardwood on the dash and you’ve got a very striking concept fueled by some serious performance heritage.
