Mercedes Now Has a Baby Stroller and, Believe it or Not, It has Mini C-Class Wheels
As if building some of the world’s most refined cars isn’t enough, Mercedes is jumping into the baby mobility business with the launch of the Avantgarde baby stroller. Developed in collaboration with German stroller company Hartan, the Avantgarde is the kind of stroller you’d want your baby to ride in you want to introduce him or her to a life of luxury before they even have a chance to walk on their own two feet. Neither Mercedes nor Hartan have indicated the price for the stroller, but a Russian site called Kinderpram is taking orders for a tidy sum of 82,400 руб. That’s around $1,300 based on current exchange rates.
The LY 650 is a 65-Foot Luxury Yacht that Lexus is Really Building
Lexus has a new flagship called the LY 650, and if I did not know any better, I’d say that Lexus has a new ship. Literally. This is a 65-foot luxury yacht that Lexus revealed only days ago. It is the company’s effort in the maritime business where it has partnered with Marquis-Larson Boat Group, a company based in Pulaski, Wisconsin, to build and sell a true luxury yacht. Following an overwhelmingly positive response it received last year after the introduction of the stunning 42-foot Lexus Sport Yacht Concept, the Japanese company continued with the development of the full-fledged yacht. This one carries over some design elements from the last year’s concept. More importantly, Lexus was so brazen to say that the new yacht will become the fourth flagship in the lineup - just after the LS sedan, the LX SUV, and the LC coupe.
Think Having a Kid Means Giving Up Sports Cars Forever? Not with these Compact Booster Seats from MiFold
As someone who’s looking to start a family in the near future, I’ve noticed that there’s a whole new world of craziness awaiting me. It’s bad enough that I’ll soon be trading off my first baby – a very-well-maintained 1991 Acura Legend – for a safer, more family-friendly car like a Volvo or Subaru. I just came to terms with that when I realized that I’m in over my head when it comes to finding a car seat that I trust enough to actually use. That’s when I stumbled across the company Mifold and its range of booster seats. Sure, it’ll be a few years before I have to worry about booster seats, but holy crap are these things awesome. They are compact, light, safe, and some of them even look cool.
After browsing the MiFold webpage a bit, I got to thinking about giving up my Legend, and the fact that I may not be able to have a truly fun car anytime in the foreseeable future – at least not if I want to take my mini-me with me, anyway. Then it hit me – with something like this, I may not have to give up my Legend after all. With a booster seat so compact, parking my little car for a few years might actually be an option. Think about it – a four-year-old can easily fit in the back of a small sports coupe. With a booster seat small enough, there’s no real reason to give up your sports car as long as it actually has a back seat. Sure, you can’t haul your infant around in it but, once they are old enough for a booster seat, why not introduce them to the wonderful world of sports cars a little earlier? The point is that, for those of us who thought that starting a family meant trading off our beloved sports cars forever, there may be a solution. That is, assuming you can get the wife to agree and that you can afford a new family car without selling your other pride and joy, of course.
Either way, I’ve listed all of MiFold’s products below because I think they are cool and wanted to share them with you. If it convinces even a few of you to start using a booster seat for your little one, or helps you hang on to your four-wheeled love, then I’ll consider this mission accomplished.

Video: You Don’t Need Waves to Surf Anymore!
There’s no denying it, EVs are taking over the streets little by little. And now, they are about to take over the water too. What you’re about to watch is a promotional video for the Radinn G2X, an electric surfboard that pretty much eliminates the need for waves. It’s currently offered by the company in two different colors, and it doesn’t come cheap. We’re talking about €9,900 here, and that’s just for the board, a standard power pack and a standard charger. If you want a fast charger that brings charging time down to 2 hours, you’re going to pay another €1,490. An extra power pack is €2,990 while the XL pack, with 900 more Watt hours, is €4,490. And then there’s a Tesla-like “Radical Upgrade” what will boost top speed from 50 kph to 59 kph.
With that in mind, it’s a relatively new device on the market, and it’s the only one we’ve seen of the type. We’re sure there’s more out there, but this is the first we’re hearing of them. It just goes to show how far EV technology can really go. Yesterday it was electric cars; now it’s electric surfboards. What will we come up with next?
EV Demand is Forcing Companies Like Apple to Source Battery Supplies Directly from Mining Companies
The explosion in electric vehicles with even more demand in the near future is putting cobalt supplies at its max. Cobalt, an important metal ingredient in lithium-ion batteries, has tech companies scrambling to secure large, multi-year contracts directly with cobalt mining companies, skipping the traditional route of a middleman company brokering the deal. Apple is one such high-profile company pulling up a chair at the negotiation table to secure its future access to battery supplies.
