Way back in 2009, when Syfy was spelled "Sci Fi" and DVICE was spelled "device," Tesla Motors promised us all that their forthcoming Model S electric sedan would cost $49,900 after federal tax credits. Now, it's nearly 2012, and the final price might shock you.
It was rainy in the Middle East last summer. Like, super rainy, which is unusual for a desert. A company called Meteo Systems is boasting that they caused all that rain, using a secret weather control system based on technology first developed by Nikola Tesla in 1890.
The future is definitely going to be wireless, and not just when it comes to data. eCoupled has been figuring out ways to power and charge all of your stuff without wires, from cell phones to laptops to Tesla Roadsters.
Tesla Motors today unveiled an update to its famous Roadster sports car, the Roadster 2.5. The changes are fairly minor, including a new front fascia, better seats, an optional touchscreen navigator, better sound in the cabin and improved wheels.

We particularly like this death mask of Nikola Tesla, just because it's incredibly creepy. If you want to see it in person, it's on display at the Tesla Museum in Belgrade.
I got the chance to drive the 2010 Tesla Roadster Sport earlier this week. Sitting behind the wheel, feeling the power of the all-electric motor, it was hard not to get caught up in the potential of electric vehicles (EVs)....
Ever since DVICE first heard about the luxurious all-electric Tesla Roadster, I've been dying to get behind the wheel of one. Today I finally got my wish, taking the 2010 Roadster Sport for a spin on the streets of NYC...
Last summer we talked about how the Tesla people were tapped to supply batteries for Mercedes-Benz's electric car program, and now we get a sneak peek at the fruits of this collaboration. The Tesla Motors Club held an event recently...
