5 Of The Best Cars For Tech Lovers

shutterstock_197510807

Written by Sophie Davidson in collaboration with Top Tests. -Ed.

It’s remarkable how much technical equipment and gadgetry cars possess now, even compared to ten years ago. Even lower level model ranges usually provide features such as ESC (Electronic Stability Control) and sockets for iPods and USB connectivity as standard.

The forecast that driverless cars are imminent is certainly believable – after all, some provide degrees of driverless technology in the form of self-parking and collision avoidance systems right now.

Here are five high tech offerings you can already enjoy…

1. Mercedes-Benz S-Class
Bristling with high tech advances, this huge Mercedes offers such innovations as ‘virtual’ LED instrumentation and, with parking and a unique steering assistance system, the closest yet to a car that that drives itself. There’s even a scent container in the glove compartment if you fancy a bit of aromatherapy in the cabin.

Think Of Pico As The Keurig For Beer

pico-brew-1

Making your own beer at home can be fun, but it can also be challenging. It’s a multi-step process that requires a fair amount of know-how and equipment. The Pico brewer however takes all the legwork out of the equation, and can make an entire 5 litre batch for you from start to finish. All you have to do is pick an ingredient pack, add water, and wait. The company has already signed up dozens of craft brewers, so you’ll be able to make your own Rogue, Dieu Du Ciel, or Flying Monkeys beer right at home. PicoBrew, the company behind the device, will also open up a marketplace where brewers will be able to sell their own PicoPaks, creating what they call “an app store for beer”.

It’s a cool idea, and given the advantages, is totally worth the $599 asking price.

Outer Space Vodka Is Filtered Through Meteorites

outer-space-vodka

Vodka is vodka is vodka; as far as we’re concerned, they’re all pretty much the same. Oh sure, some are smoother than others, but at the end of the day we rarely sit down and sip on a snifter of vodka; that pleasure is reserved for more aromatic spirits like Whiskey. So in order to stand out amongst the other commodity-like brands of vodka, you have to come up with some gimmick or other. Outer Space Vodka’s idea is to filter the liquid through meteorites and to package it in a bottle that looks like what we seem to think aliens resemble. They make no claim of out-of-this-world taste (get it?) or any other drinking benefits beyond the knowledge that it’s been in contact with material that literally comes from space. It’s as good a gimmick as any, we suppose, and it’s $30.

The Ember Mug Will Keep Your Drink Warm For You All Day

ember-1

Drinking coffee at the exact temperature you enjoy is like trying to hit a moving target; first it’s scalding, then it ends up lukewarm or cold within minutes. Ember is a pretty brilliant smart connected mug that first cools down your beverage quickly to your preferred temperature, then keeps it there all day. You set the temp by twisting the base, or by connecting the mug to your smartphone. If you do that, you’ll have the added benefit of being notified when your drink has cooled down to its optimal temp. The internal battery will then warm your liquids for up to two hours, or all day if you set Ember down on the wireless charging coaster that it comes bundled with. It’ll pair with an Apple Watch as well, or any iOS or Android device with Bluetooth 4.0 or later. It’s a $129 pledge, down from its expected $149 retail cost.

Finally: Kellogg’s To Release Maple Bacon Pop Tarts (And Other Flavours)

pop-tarts-flavors

Everyone knows one of the most fantastic flavour combinations known to man is Maple-Bacon. If we had our way, there’d be Maple-Bacon pie, cheese, candies, edible underwear, lube… Heck, everything would be that flavour! So we’re happy that everyone’s favourite breakfast is finally being released in that particular flavour combination. As a matter of fact, Kellogg’s has announced the release of five limited edition varieties, including maple-bacon.

Maple Bacon: Mid-December 2015
-Watermelon: Mid-December 2015
-Chocolatey Caramel: Mid-December 2015
-Frosted Spring Strawberry: Early 2016
-Pink Lemonade: Mid-April 2016

Yeah, sure, the others sound decent too. But they’re a little vanilla as far as we’re concerned. We’re not sure which markets these are for, but if they don’t come to Quebec (where Yours Truly is sitting), we’ll be shocked.
