In 2003 Popular Science asked readers: "Will most Americans be driving hydrogen-powered cars by 2015?" The results to that poll are lost to time, but we already know the answer, even if 2015 isn't over yet. Unfortunately, the green technology hasn't been adopted in the past 12 years--but the next decade looks promising.
When I was a kid, I always coveted those slot-car racetracks, where you could face off with miniature motorized cars on a scale track. Technology has progressed over the years, but that's done little to diminish my desire; when Anki Drive showed off its 21st-century take on slot racers back in 2013, I may have needed a napkin to wipe up the drool. Now the company has announced its next-generation offering, aptly titled Anki Overdrive, and my inner child is pretty psyched.
One of the better improvements of newer cars has been the addition of advanced safety features--including things like collision detection, lane change alerts, and more. But if you've got an older car, you've been missing out on these new improvements. That's where the crowdfunded CarVi hopes to come in, by bringing safer driving options, as well as driving assessment features, to older or less high-end automobiles.
