Volkswagen's New Phone Cases are Made From Sheet Metal That Come From Texting-And-Driving Crashes

Volkswagen’s New Phone Cases are Made From Sheet Metal That Come From Texting-And-Driving Crashes

Message aside, there’s something creepy about these phone cases

Volkswagen has a new product it wants to sell. It’s not a car. It’s not a clothing line. It’s a line of iPhone 8 phone cases, each with a story to tell. The cases, called “crashed cases,” are made from the sheet metal of cars that were involved in texting-and-driving car crashes in Sweden. If for nothing else, they should serve as a reminder of what happens when drivers in Sweden don’t pay attention to the road.

Shopping Rush: Useful Items You Can Buy For Your Car On Black Friday

Shopping Rush: Useful Items You Can Buy For Your Car On Black Friday

Now may be the time to start drawing up your car shopping list

As recently as a decade ago, Mapquest was the go-to source for all of our navigation needs. We’d go to the site, type in our destinations, print the pages, and be on our way. Fortunately, we don’t have to do that anymore. The rise of the digital age has given our cars a smorgasbord of built-in tech features that enhance our daily driving experience and streamlines the efficiency by which we go about our daily routines. A lot of today’s automakers offer a lot of these standard-issue gadgets and accessories, but why settle when you can have so much more at your disposal.

From practical devices designed to assist us in our daily drives to unnecessary gadgets that are still pretty cool to own, we’ve compiled a list of extra accessories that you can look into and see if they’re worth your hard-earned money. I’m not going to force any of you to buy the items on this list. It’s just that shopping season is fast approaching, and there’s no better way to prepare for the incoming rush of Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Christmas than by streamlining your shopping list. Who knows, one of the items you’ll see here could end up on that list. Perhaps an high-definition dash cam? Maybe a coffeemaker for your car?

Now you know what to ask Santa Claus for Christmas

Tesla has thrown its weight to the power bank market - yes, power bank - with the introduction of the Power bank, a portable battery charger that should satiate your thirst for anything Tesla without actually buying any one of the automaker’s electric cars. The Powerbank takes the shape of the company’s supercharger monument that’s resting at the Tesla Design Studio. It features a single 18650 cell with a 3350 mAh capacity, enough juice to charge all recent iPhone models and micro-USB-equipped smartphones. The Powerbank also retails for $45, cheap enough for those wishing for one this Christmas to actually get one, provided they were able to before it sold out.

LEGO Should Green Light This LEGO Ideas Proposal ASAP!

LEGO Should Green Light This LEGO Ideas Proposal ASAP!

Care for a Lego kit of the AC Cobra?

LEGO has come up with some pretty incredible ideas in the past, one of which is creating a space for fans and enthusiasts alike to propose projects. In the past, we’ve seen proposals like a BMW E30 M3, a Fiat 500 F, a Military M151 MUTT, a NASA Mars Rover, and a Caterham Super Seven. Now, another enterprising LEGO builder, shimon430, is proposing a LEGO build that will undoubtedly gain some traction. Ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes on this 1:14 scale LEGO 1947 AC Cobra.

It’s not the first Shelby Cobra proposal to come out of LEGO Ideas - past offerings from builders Eugenio and Mathieub have failed to get any traction - but for what it’s worth, shimon430’s proposal may very well be the most detailed LEGO version of the iconic AC Cobra I’ve ever seen. The builder says that it’s the most complex LEGO project he’s ever done, and it’s hard not to disagree because the finished product looks exceptional, right down to the remarkable details on the car’s body and interior. Even better, shimon430’s AC Cobra has plenty of working features, a goal the builder accomplished by combing the best elements of LEGO’s Technic and System lines. The end result is something that’s certainly worth voting for. As it stands, it’s already garnered 422 supports, leaving it just a little more than halfway to its goal of garnering 1,000 supports. Even better the proposal will be live for another 421 days so there should be enough time for LEGO fans all over the world to help shimon430 bring his LEGO 1947 AC Cobra proposal to life.

Keep Your Beer Chilled with the Volkswagen Microbus-Inspired Fridge

Keep Your Beer Chilled with the Volkswagen Microbus-Inspired Fridge

Is this fridge cool or what?

First launched in 1949, the Microbus is now one of Volkswagen’s most legendary creations, alongside the equally iconic Beetle. So it’s far from surprising that the German firm is planning to offer a new retro-looking van under the same name by 2022. Just like it’s not surprising that many people got really excited at the thought of being able to buy a modern Microbus in the near future. The only downside is that we’re almost five years away from seeing it in the metal. So just in case, you can’t handle the long wait, here’s a cool fridge you can buy.

"Did you say fridge?!" Yup, that’s what I said. You’re probably wondering what a fridge got to do with the Volkswagen Microbus. Well, Gorenje’s latest Retro Special Edition is inspired by the Volkswagen Microbus. More specifically, its design resembles that of the 1960s Microbus’ front fascia. Both the two-tone finish separated by the big V-shaped chrome trim and the "VW" emblem are there, while the handle that looks as if borrowed from the van adds to the effect. Oh, and the one used in all the commercial is painted is a gorgeous aqua blue that’s as vintage as they get. Obviously, you can also have it in red.
