Ford Max Motor Dreams

For many new parents, there is only one guaranteed solution to putting their baby down at the end of the day – a night-time drive that soothes, calms and eventually helps the little one nod off.

To help, Ford Spain has developed a cot that could simulate – in the comfort of your own home – the motion, engine noise, and even the street lighting of those night‑time drives. To all appearances a regular cot, the Max Motor Dreams, comes to life using a smartphone app. This enables it to record and then reproduce the comforting movement, lights and sounds of a particular journey.

For now, the Max Motor Dreams is a one-off pilot. But following numerous enquiries, the company is considering putting the unique cot into full‑scale production.

Lexus Hoverboard

The Lexus Hoverboard has been the talk of the town for the last couple of weeks as it represents true innovation and imagination, while pushing the boundaries of technology even further.

The below official reveal of the Lexus Hoverboard in action, marks the culmination of 18 months of design and technology planning and weeks of testing at a specially constructed "hoverpark" near Barcelona.

The task of putting the hoverboard through its paces fell to international pro-skateboard star Ross McGouran who helped demonstrate tricks that no skateboard could ever perform i.e. including travelling across water. 😎

St. Pauli pinkelt zurück

St. Pauli is one of Hamburg's top entertainment destinations, attracting as many as 20 million visitors a year with its popular nightclubs and legal prostitution. However the steady stream of visitors has many residents and merchants angry as the visitors often relieve themselves against walls which leaves the whole place smelling like a latrine.

So to combat this, St. Pauli merchants association is fighting back by coating the most frequented walls with Ultra Ever Dry, a hyper-hydrophobic nano paint originally developed by Nissan. Now when urine hits this paint, it splashes back, soaking the offender's pants and shoes with his own urine.

UPDATE: Pee-repellant walls commissioned by San Franciso Public Works
