From Brazil, the bike-based projectionists who bring their super-high lumen light shows to life by treating entire landscapes as a canvas. The time-lapsed results are pretty marvelous. Using long exposure photographs, we created short videos of stop motion combining traditional animation, technology and nature. We spent long nights capturing each scene. Read all about vjsuave […]

Your wait is important to you. No, really, it is. I didn’t know this, but some online services actually make us wait for their response. I learned this via Mark Wilson, who revealed as much in his latest post. The fact is that returning a search result usually takes micro-seconds, but we’re suspicious creatures. Anything […]

It’s great fun to speculate on the future of this or that, and let’s face it, no-one ever got famous (or in the case of those usually engaged in the daily grind of business, tried to generate sales) saying thing’s would broadly stay the same. So here’s a prediction about what the future holds for […]

Spotted this today, the Riversimple hydrogen-powered car manufacturers ‘sale of service’ ownership model – ‘We’re not selling products. We’ll retain ownership of the cars and sell mobility as a service.’ With a product platform and business culture designed around sustainability, it’s good to see how that philosophy has been neatly and clearly integrated into a full-scale […]

…on this car, please. Used to be that I thought vending a business card from a machine at motorway service stations was a (briefly distracting) novelty. But here’s the thing, what about coin-op for collecting your next car? The story here is rather more to do with fulfillment than show-rooming and sales – it’s intended […]

The pain of trying to align strategies from the digital domain into real estate continues to preoccupy automotive brand owners, doubly compounded with demands at both a product and dealership level. With apologies to TU Automotive, who have been busy providing plenty of good guidance and help in the space, here’s a screen grab of […]

*Ok, so it’s not a real headline, I made it up. But before you level accusations of click-bait tactics, looking at the way the conversations around connected cars are building, all that data they’ll generate is being hungrily eyed-up. It’s only a matter of time before someone sees beyond the hack-threat stories abounding and to […]

Google Auto was formed as a limited liability company in late 2011. Who knew? Not me at least, as the information came to light through an FOI request by the Guardian.
