Speed is a thread that runs through the fabric of human history to date. Somewhat synonymous with efficiency, the hunger for it has ushered in far-reaching advancement to our world. 

Today, high velocity in dealing with certain tasks (personal or professional) occupy a prominent place in human affairs and this is more palpable in the technological arena. Phones, mobile data, robots, construction/farming equipment, multi-functional televisions, etcetera, all reflect this culture of speed.

That of vehicles continue to defy belief, as the transition from fuel-powered automobiles to electric-powered ones is already underway. Climate preservation protagonists’ contention that the former to an extent erodes the ozone layer has been critical to this process. With an array of electric cars now on display, the latest Faraday Future FF91 which made an appearance at the 2017 CES event proves to be the special one setting the pace in the detour of the automobile industry.

Manufactured by Faraday Future automobile company, FF 91 is an electric production car that boasts of several features that make it both driver and passenger friendly. It is an epitome of the rising self-driven vehicle technology that saves owners any driving hassle. 
With an aero-shaped front view that is crucial to the range it can go after being charged and front lights that beautifully indicate its mode at a particular point in time, this sports utility vehicle (SUV) echoes the absence of the word “impossible” in the technology dictionary.

The FF 91 is littered with sensors and lasers that enable it function distinctly, thereby eclipsing other electric cars. Richard Kim, the design chief in Faraday Future, during its recent presentation in the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, disclosed that the SUV can go 608 km per charge. More so, it can reach 60 mph in 2.39 seconds, the fastest amongst electric-powered vehicles. This reeks of speed and a remarkable automobile experience.

Furthermore, the interior is out of this world, as it is adroitly designed with seats enclosed in fine leather that automatically recline as prompted by the posture of one sitting on it. The sophistication of the FF 91 is underscored by its external sensitive-to-touch capability. Like a touch-screen smart phone, you can open its doors by merely touching it to gain access to another world that oozes luxury and connectivity.

Owner security is guaranteed with the personal security system in place to forestall unpermitted access and theft. 
The often unforeseen stress that comes with packing a car is obliterated, as it does that by itself. FF 91 embodies an open charging system that makes means through which it can be charged numerous. Estimated at a $100,000 to $290,000, mass production of it is scheduled to start in 2018.

Since the advent of automobiles, it has become an integral part of our day-to-day living, seen in the instrumental role it continually plays to dismantle the distance barrier. Speed as well as efficiency in doing so is noticeable in the increasing enthusiasm toward electric cars.

The FF 91 is a constellation of comfort, sophistication, speed, and a sellf-driving system that bedazzles. It is the vehicle to beat in the surging electric automobiles market. With it on the road and you in either the driving or back seat, your car dreams are sure to come true.

concepts or art projects that combine their vehicles with unusual materials of late.
Car manufacturers, Lexus had previously made a car entirely out of cardboard and also made a vehicle with wheels made of ice.
Nissan, on its part decided to go with a life-size origami model.
Not to be left out, car makers Toyota has joined the fray with its own art concept innovation.


Japanese car makers, Toyota have announced a new vehicle concept ; the Setsuna.
The Setsuna is a car made from wood, and is set to be unveil at the Milan Design Week in April.
The Setsuna means “moment” in Japanese and vehicle company Toyota says the Setsuna is meant to serve as a reflection of the fleeting
moments people have with their cars. The Setsuna is made using different types of
woods in making the various parts of the car.

These wooden materials would change colors
and textures with time and age, quite like how cars undergo gradual transformations.
The Setsuna features an electric motor.
Manufacturers, Toyota did not at time of publication provide specific information on details about battery range or powertrain. The exterior panels of the Setsuna are made with Japanese cedar, Japanese birch were used in making the Setsuna's frame.

When it comes to automobile design, our french friends don’t carry last. To confirm this, Renault’s all-electric Trezor concept has just been crowned the “Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year award“. The award was presented at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy.

This is not the first time the Trezor is getting an award. It also won the “Concept Car of the Year” at the International Automobile Festival in Paris, and at the Geneva Car Design Awards.

This award testifies to the fine judgment of great car collectors, who consider automobiles to be works of art. It recognizes the work of our designers who were part of this fantastic project,” said Renault Concept Design boss, Stephane Janin.

In order to claim this latest accolade, the Trezor had to meet a set of steep criteria, as both a working concept as well as a car with original styling. The Trezor is powered by a Formula E-derived electric motor, putting down 350 HP (260 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque.

This ride is simply amazing. It’s even difficult to tell the difference between the front and the rear in some of the photos. Let’s see your hand if you feel like riding this ride.

The annual Consumer Electronics Show for 2017 has concluded and since it was the 50th anniversary of the tech event, it was a grand stage to make announcements.

Image result for ces 2017 images

Speaking of which, this year saw some highly anticipated and over the top announcements. Of course, we can’t mention all, but here are some of the most exciting and eye-catching products showcased this year.


Faraday Future FF91

The highly anticipated car from Faraday Future finally rolled out its promised production vehicle (almost) debunking the rumours around the company’s fallout.

The FF91 is claimed to be a super-fast electric vehicle which can go head-to-head with the likes of Ferrari, Bentley and its biggest rival, Tesla. 

The company showcased its potential with acceleration speeds of 0 to 100 kmph in just 2.39 seconds. Specs include a 130-kWh battery, a range of 378 miles. 

Cruise at a steady 55 mph and range goes up to 482 miles. Sounds like the electric car to go for? Not likely as the company is still not sure as to when exactly will one be available to buy. On top of that it could end up with a $180,000 (about N81,000,000) price tag. 

Although it wasn’t a bed of roses all the way. At a critical juncture of the demo, when it was supposed to show its self-parking chops, the car stopped working

Media outlets abroad claim that there was a human element involved in steering the car, while its self-driving capabilities were being showcased.

Samsung FlexWash and FlexDry

If you thought laptops were the only 2-in-1s in the business, then you should check out Samsung’s new washing machine that is the next-level of cleaning clothes. 

It features a superior four-in-one washer and dryer system. Why have one when you can have two washing machines and dryers? Not only that, it also offers four Wi-Fi controlled laundry devices, which means anyone in your household can control the machine with their personal smartphones and tablets.

Dell’s 8K Monitor

Now we know that there is still a deficiency of good 4K content, but Dell’s new 8K monitor is drool-worthy. 

It is a 31.5-inch display offering a 7680×4320 at 60Hz with a pixel density of 280 ppi. Dell is offering 100 percent Adobe RGB, a 1,300:1 contrast ratio, 9.7mm bezel along with two DisplayPorts, four USB 3.0 and an audio line-out. The price is a whooping $4,999 (about N2,250,000) but that’s 33MP of resolution at your disposal.

LG OLED Wallpaper TV

Part of LG Signature 4K OLED W series, the latest product from the company is said to offer a 65-inch or even bigger 4K image on a super-slim panel which is also flexible. 

The LED TV is so slim that it can hang onto a wall like a wallpaper. It features a magnetic mounting system which means you can just pull it off the wall, quite literary. 

Being flexible, one can even bend it without causing any damage. If we talk about the price, it is worth $8,000 (about N3,600,000), now that’s one expensive wallpaper for your wall.

Samsung H7 Wireless Speaker

Samsung announced a bunch of new products including new laptops. 
However its H7 Wireless Speaker was the one product that really stood out. It features UHQ audio capabilities which pumps up audio to 32bits from a source that offers anything between 8 to 24-bit sound. 

Samsung said that is uses an algorithm to create sound which is much closer to the original recording than existing HD audio. 
It also looks great with its industrial metal design, and has been given a 2017 CES Innovation Award.

Razer Project Valerie

Why have one laptop display, when you can have three. That’s what Razer believes. 

It showcased a concept laptop which is called the Razer Blade Pro but with three 17-inch displays. Each display is a 4K IGZO panel managed by Nvidia’s G-Sync monitor technology to ensure that everything runs smooth. 

Kingston 2TB pen drive

As storage needs are growing, memory maker Kingston announced a pen-drive. 

Now this means you have as much storage as two decent laptops or well about 4,00,000 high-resolution images and yes it supports USB 3.1. 

The Kingston Data Traveler Ultimate GT will feature compatibility with both Windows 10 and older OS versions as well as Chrome OS, Mac OS X and Linux will also be compatible. 

The company is offering a warranty for five years. There is no information about the pricing but expect $700-800 (N315,000 - N360,000).

Withings Hair Coach

A hairbrush? Yes, CES 2017 saw the announcement of the first ever Bluetooth hair brush. 

Launched by a collaboration between Withings, Kerastase, and L’Oreal it listens how you have been brushing your hair and offers suggestions on how to improve your strokes. 

It can also detect if you’re brushing wet or dry hair and reminds you not to do the latter. It can count your total brush strokes per session and supposedly gauges the health of your hair.

There goes a list of craziest tech gadgets and devices at the CES 2017 tech event.
