You Can Now Buy a Painfully Accurate 1:18 Scale Diecast Model of the 2021 Tesla Roadster
The Tesla Roadster is one of the most anticipated vehicles for 2020. Not because the American firm is reviving the nameplate, but because the Roadster 2.0 promises outstanding performance, like more than 7,000 pound-feet of torque, a 0-to-60 mph sprint of 1.9 seconds, and a top speed of more than 250 mph. But all these spectacular figures will come at a cost - an estimated $250,000. Obviously not many will be able to afford the Roadster 2.0, but now you can buy a scale model for just 0.1-percent of the price.
The New Michael Keaton Lego DC Batman Car is Two-Foot of Childhood Dreams Come True
One of the most important Hollywood cars is about to get the LEGO treatment. In what could be the best LEGO car of all time, the iconic Batmobile from the 1989 Batman movie has now been immortalized in bricks. Otherwise known as the 1989 Tim Burton Batmobile, this LEGO car is a showstopper when fully built and a huge challenge to actually build. It’s made up of 3,306 pieces, which is around 200 fewer pieces than the LEGO Bugatti Chiron. The LEGO Batmobile, which arrives in time for the Tim Burton film’s 30th anniversary and the 80th anniversary of the Batman character, will be released on November 29 (Black Friday) at a price of $250.
Plan Early and Buy These Lego Cars for Christmas
It’s that time of the year again. No, not quite Christmas, but that time when adults need to start figuring out their Christmas shopping lists. So, if you happen to have a gearhead or two in the family, know that we’ve come up, as always, with the best Lego car sets you can buy right now. They’re suited to almost all ages and who knows, you might end up getting a cool Lego car for yourself. Let’s check them out.
Meet the Colide Sprint - a Supercar Lego Concept That You Need To Support Right Now
Concept supercars don’t just grow on trees, but every so often, they take the form of a LEGO creation. This is the Colide Sprint. Misspelled first name notwithstanding, it’s the creation of Vibor Cabor and he needs our help to turn the Sprint into a full-blown LEGO product that could find its way into our homes in the not-too-distant future. From the looks of it, the Colide Sprint takes the form of a mid-engine, two-seater supercar with two independent cockpits, presumably for the driver and the passenger. It also has a quad exhaust setup, though the tips are located on both sides of the car. While I’d love to see what the Sprint could look like in real life, Cabor’s creation is intriguing enough on its own to warrant a chance at coming to life as legitimate LEGO product. It’s already reached 630 supporters and still has 277 days to get to 1,000 supporters. I’m willing to bet Cabor reaches his goal before June 2020.
The Best LEGO Creator and Technic Sets You Must Have in 2019
Calling all dads, mothers, sisters, brothers, coworkers, and bosses out there: we’ve put together the definitive list of LEGO sets you must have in 2019. So whether you’re buying one for yourself or looking to make a gift out of it, you’ve come to the right place. But before we get to the point, here’s one for you: did you know that LEGO makes more tires every year than Goodyear, Bridgestone, and Michelin? Yes, it sounds utterly outrageous because it is. But it’s also true. In fact, as of 2012, the company churned out around 318 million tires each year, about 870,000 mini-tires every day. And guess what: some of those tires will help the following sets get that extra grip as they decorate your room or office. On that note, it’s time to see what 2019 has in store for us. The LEGO Store, that is.
The Best Car Dash Cams You Can Buy on Amazon
Car dashboard cameras are not a novelty anymore, which is why you can literally browse through an ocean of offers of dash cams of all shapes, sizes, and levels of technology. It’s that abundance of products that can often mislead the customer and leave him scratching to top of his head while being bombarded with all sorts of offers. So to make things easier for you, we’ve done the legwork, combed through Amazon’s vast number of car dash cameras, and came up with six winners split into three price brackets: dash cameras priced under $50, between $50 and $100, and over $100. This way, you’ll be able to stay within your budget’s limits but also make the choice that brings the most value for money. With that said, let’s check out the proposals.
8 Chevrolet Corvette Items You’ll Love To Buy From Amazon
Let’s face it, America has been in love with the Chevrolet Corvette since day one. But with the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 out of the bag, the love affair has all the chances in the world of getting more effervescent. After all, a mid-engined Vette has been somewhat of a wet dream for Chevy and with that finally turning into reality, the Corvette fanbase is in for an ego boost. Truth is, however, that not all of us will afford the new Corvette C8, even if it’s priced at under $60,000, which is way cheaper than its most notable rivals. Yes, McLarens and Porsches, I am looking at you. So why not celebrate America’s greatest sports car with these cool items you can find on Amazon?
Nintendo Switch Lite Handheld Console
We’re taking our music with us everywhere we go, just as we take our podcasts, our favorite TV shows, and so on. So we can’t think of a good reason why we shouldn’t enjoy our favorite games on the go. Sure, you can’t take your Xbox One or PS4 wherever you go since, well, size is the obvious reason, but there’s also the fact that TVs don’t grow in trees. Luckily, there are some handheld options out there, with the latest coming from Nintendo, a company that is not wasting any time when it comes to its portable gaming devices. Here’s everything we know about the Nintendo Switch Lite.
Nomad Tesla Model 3 Wireless Phone Charger
Finding aftermarket bits and bobs that fit your car perfectly is, at times, a tough task. And we’re not talking solely about the tuning scene, with its aero parts and custom wheel designs. So, consider this: how long have you been searching for, let’s say, a decent car phone charger that doesn’t break after the first use or doesn’t mess up your smartphone’s battery? California-based Nomad has been selling high-quality chargers, cables, phone cases, and other such contraptions since 2012, and it is now exploring the in-car charging gear avenue with a dual, wireless phone charger designed specifically for the Tesla Model 3.

This Lego DeLorean Is The Ultimate Back To The Future Ode
Car guy or not, you probably know what a DeLorean DMC-12 is. And we’re willing to bet you’ve seen Back to the Future, where the DMC-12 takes up the time machine role, so you have a pretty good picture of how it looks as well. Now, the DeLorean was meant to be a prolific sports car. Except it never reached that height. Although its fiberglass body structure and stainless steel body panels were designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and had gullwing doors, the amount of power and performance it actually offered on the road was not that impressive. But do you know what’s impressive? A Lego version of the DeLorean built with extreme attention to detail. And no, this is not an official Lego set, which makes it even more enticing.
Sony WF-1000XM3 Wireless Earbuds
For some of us, the daily commute can be a pretty noisy affair, especially in the big city. Luckily, modern times have blessed us with noise-canceling technology that sits right in the headphones we put into or over our ears. Of course, a pair of headphones capable of kicking noise in the face are useful in a variety of scenarios, not just when you’re looking to focus in an overcrowded bus, for example. So, if you happen to be searching for a pair of wireless, noise-canceling earbuds, then you might want to check out Sony’s latest offering. The company is expanding its 1000X range with the WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds which are fitted with noise cancellation technology that gets a boost from the QN1e chip as well as a pair of dual noise sensors.
Lanmodo Vast Night Vision Camera
While some luxury carmakers have been offering customers the option of specifying night vision cameras for their new cars - BMW was been doing this and Mercedes-Benz as well - those who own older cars or models from carmakers that simply don’t offer such a gimmick can get access to a similar technology by getting a Lanmodo car night vision camera. If you’re anything like us, then you find driving on a poorly illuminated road more of a hassle than a pleasure-inducing activity, so bear with us to discover how can the Lanmodo camera change that.

Mojipic Lets You "Talk" To Other Drivers Through Emojis
In a world where emojis are dictating our writing and communication habits whether it’s WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram or any other social media platform or chat app, the last thing we expected to see was an in-car system that displays emojis, allowing the driver to communicate with other traffic participants. That’s right, folks, the year is 2019, and someone thought of such a contraption. Even more, it was turned into a business idea that quickly popped up on Indiegogo. Where, we must say, it enjoyed bucketloads of success, raising more than $300,000 from 3,452 backers. Not impressed? Well, considering the campaign’s goal was to initially raise $20,000, we think you should be impressed after all. Let’s see what Mojipic is all about.
Naim Audio Mu-so 2 Wireless Music System
You might or might now know this, Naim was founded by Julian Vereker, who was actually a racing car driver and self-thought engineer that had a big crush on music. Naim Audio was officially launched in 1973, with Vereker and co-founder Shirley Clarke as directors. The brand’s first HQ was located in Salisbury, England, which lies just nine miles south of the Stonehenge monument. Naim grew quickly and in 1985 it received the Queen’s Award. In 2008, Naim signed a partnership with Bentley on an 18-month development program for an in-car audio system: that’s how the "Naim for Bentley" setup was born.
Keeping up with the times and customer habits, Naim went on to develop a wide range of audio setups and speakers. It’s one of the latter that got our attention: back in 2014, Naim launched the extremely exquisite Mu-so wireless music system. The year is now 2019, and the company has just introduced the second-generation Mu-so.

Secondly, it’s here to shut down the toxicity of social media, the fatigue your brain suffers from being constantly bombarded with notifications on a daily basis, and ultimately, smartphone addiction.

For the moment, in the shape of a Kickstarter project, but nonetheless an enticing and promising one.
