Fisker Super Battery

Fisker may not be in the electric car spotlight right now, thanks to Tesla, but if this new car battery comes installed on any of their future vehicles, that could quickly change.

SpotMini Robot


Google-owned Boston Dynamics has unveiled their latest creation, SpotMini, and it moves more fluidly than ever.
