The ORIGOSafe both has a frustrating name to type and will stop you from texting while driving.
Dogs can do all sorts of amazing things from leading the blind, to sniffing out drugs, but now it looks like they may soon take over behind the wheel too. Best of all, unlike those robotic Google drivers, these guys will shower you with doggie kisses when you get to your destination.
We all know about the dangers of texting while driving, but most young drivers still think they can get away with it. In Belgium, a safety group called Responsible Young Drivers decided to drive the danger home, by asking them to send texts while taking their driving test.
This post will never serve as an excuse for you to drive drunk, but it could make you think about not going anywhere when you're feeling under the weather (which could also be a pretty good excuse to just game all day).

It sounds like the kind of technology you'd see on The Jetsons (well, you know, if the Jetsons drove on roads), but a group of researchers in Germany "Air Clean" slabs that help reduce the detrimental impact of cars and trucks.

Rather than simply display your plate number on a sweet, scrolling marquee, the plates would display ads. Ads for other drivers to read.
This is the Uni-Signal, or Universal Sign Light. It's here to address a major problem with our old traffic lights: if everyone is supposed to know what a traffic light is trying to tell them, then why isn't it designed so that everyone will be able to read it?
LED traffic lights may use a fraction of the energy their incandescent predecessors used, but there's a problem emerging as we enter these colder months: LED bulbs don't give off a substantial amount of heat. When things got cold in...
