Mammoth CT scanner to analyze Car Wrecks

CT scan wrecked car

We know that if you have an internal problem with your body your doctor would recommend either an X-Ray or a CT scan. And now it seems the same technology will be used on crashed cars to help analyze and determine what caused them to crash.

Computed Tomography (CT scan to you and me) has long since helped many a human, and now the Fraunhofer Development Center would like to do the same for crashed cars.

The center is using the biggest CT scanner they can get their hands on to analyze the wrecks. Naturally, a standard, hospital-sized one will not cover an SUV…

Fraunhofer has said that the CT scan will provide analysts with an in-depth, 3D view of the wreckage without hamoering or disrupting anything. Thus leaving the wreckage in it’s ‘original’ state.  (more…)

Don't be rude… Press a button!

I have to admit I suffer from increadible road rage. It probably has something to do with the fact I pee petrol when I wake up.Unfortunatly my bad road-rage means Im forever sticking my fingers up at people who cut me off or flash me cos I over take them at twice the speed limit (Disclaimer: catch me if you can coppers…)

Well, now there is a gadget that can stop you sticking your hand out the window at 160kph. Its called a Drivemocion from au-my. This little sign is placed in the rear window and using a control in the front you can display pre-set icons/words to drivers behind you. Everything from a smiley face to an angry face and even the words ‘thanks’ and ‘idiot’.

Check out the Drivemocion website for more information.
