    As the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, New York City residents will be waiting to see the famous Times Square Ball drop. However, this year, a brand new motor racing series will make its debut in the city. Well, a virtual one at least. Hyundai has launched an interactive racing game called “HYUNDAI RACE” on its prominent Times Square video billboard, which allows visitors the chance to drive the new 2012 Hyundai Veloster on the big screen in front of thousands. The car in the game is controlled by tilting a smartphone, just like turning the steering wheel when driving a...

  • Find My Car Smart app for iPhone 4S
    Find My Car Smart App Could Be The Errand-Runner's Best Friend

    Let's be honest: Bluetooth isn't the most beloved product on the market. As communications technologies go, it's a huge battery hog, it's notoriously buggy, any many folks would rather listen to radio static and miss calls than try to pair their phone with an in-dash system. However, a new version...

    After Two Years, Apple Pulls Fake Driver's License App

    If you heard the sound of a thousand distant screams yesterday, it wasn't an ebbing in The Force, it was the anguished moans of college freshmen, learning that Apple had pulled DriversEd.com's free "Driver's License" app from the company's App Store. In an instant, fake IDs became minimally more...

    Car Crime Classic GTA III To Hit Apple iOS, Android December 15

    When Rockstar games released the first trailer for Grand Theft Auto 5 last month, we accepted that when it finally hits the shelves some time next year, it might be difficult to tear ourselves away and do some work. With the new announcement (via Gamespot) that Grand Theft Auto 3 will be coming to...

  • Siri becomes voice-activated ignition key

    Technology you can talk to has been around in films for years, but the Siri voice-activated software assistant really has turned the iPhone 4S into a little robot personal assistant. Still, there's unexplored territory as far as talking to tech is concerned. How about a Knight Rider-style car that you can start with a voice command? Oh, looks like we've been beaten to it. According to TechCrunch, developer Brandon Fiquett has developed a hack that allows him to start his Acura TL via his Siri-equipped iPhone 4S. He created a plugin that uses the Siri proxy server to interact with a PHP script...

    Bring Nissan's World To Your Apple iPad With Global App

    In recent years, Nissan and Apple have gone together like macaroni and cheese. The Japanese carmaker was one of the first to launch an iPhone app and the late Steve Jobs even used Nissan's Leaf to demonstrate the iAd serviced when it was launched last year. Nissan's boffins have been hard at work...

    Ferrari Enzo Toy Car Now Under iPhone App Control

    Don't say we didn't call it. The old-school radio control handset is dead. Back in March we showed a Mini Cooper radio control car being directed via smartphone.

    iPhone 4S Hitches Its Wagon To The 2012 Nissan Leaf

    As everyone knows by now, Apple did not launch the iPhone 5 at yesterday's press event.

The trouble with all this is that it's very much...
