    Introducing The Aeromobil – The Worlds First Flying Car (VIDEO)

    Finally – a real flying car!

    Throughout our childhoods we’ve been exposed to flying cars. Sure, they weren’t real but rather a part of some of favorite television shows (think The Jetsons, Wacky Races…). Well, now finally, after what seems like forever, someone has successfully managed to build a flying car that really works and looks really good.

    Stefan Klein of Slovakia has spent the past 20 years of his life, designing, developing and finally constructing a flying car. It is called the AeroMobil and can drive on the road as a normal car and transfigure into a flying car – with wings and all.

    The car itself has a steel framework and is powered by a Rotax 912 engine.

    Check out the video and images below and visit Carblog for the full article.

    Honda Eliminated The Driver’s Blind Spot With A Really Simple Technology

    These days, most advances in car safety come from newly minted technology: Cameras, sensors, radars, and computers let cars warn us of danger and even discuss it amongst themselves.

    These new technologies are good for automakers. They make driving safer, justify higher prices, and allow brands to distinguish themselves from the competition.

    Still, it’s refreshing to hear that Honda is taking a different approach.

    Rather than bolt a potentially expensive blind spot detection system to its new cars, it just made the side view mirror better.

    The result is the Expanded-View Driver’s Mirror, with a convex outer edge that provides a wider view. Consider the blind spot a thing of the past.

    Honda didn’t invent this idea; it’s not ground-breaking. What’s new is that in the past two years, the automaker has made the improved mirror a standard feature on most cars in its lineup, including all Accord, Civic, Odyssey, CR-V, and CR-Z models. It will be included on the all-new 2015 Fit.

    For Honda buyers who insist on shelling out more cash for high-tech features, there’s still hope. The LaneWatch system uses a camera in the passenger side door to show the view of the right side of the car in the center display. It’s a standard feature, but only on fancier Civic models, starting with the EX trim level (base price is $24,880).

    Here’s the 2014 Civic Hybrid, which comes with the Extended-View Driver’s Mirror, and starts for $24,635:
