Lexus Car has a Unique new Paintjob

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Imagine seeing this thing cruising down the road at you. Pretty sweet if you ask me!

You’ve heard of wearing your heart on your sleeve, but now, you can wear it on your car.

Lexus recently teamed up with an Australian agency called Tricky Jigsaw to create the first vehicle with a real-time heartbeat, giving the outside world a unique perspective of the driver’s condition inside.

It all started with Lexus’ RC F coupe, a 467-horsepower V8 dynamo that’s pretty exciting in its own right. Then Tricky Jigsaw — a technological innovation sector of Australian firm M&C Saatchi — got a hold of some Lumilor paint, a unique material that responds to an electric current. With the occupant wearing a wireless heart rate monitor, the vehicle’s shell reacts, pulses, and glows in tune with the driver’s cardiac cycle. The lucky dogs over at Techly were invited to test the technology, and clearly, they didn’t skip a beat.

The process was not easy. The whole endeavor took six months, and involved scads of custom work and engineering knowhow. First, the car’s body was disassembled into its individual sections and slathered in Lumilor. Then, each panel was assigned a specific animation sequence — governed by a bespoke circuit board — and connected to an Arduino processor. With the heartbeat monitor hooked up, you’re left with a vehicle that seems alive.

Lexus made a Hoverboard

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Don’t get too excited. I know the image looks cool, and their teaser video is very dramatic, but there IS a bit of trickery going on behind the scenes.

It’s not a hoverboard in the sense that we imagine from Back to The Future. You won’t be gliding around on the streets with one of these anytime in the near future, but if Lexus decided to make an indoor track made out of magnetic material … then we’d be talking. The board uses superconductors cooled with liquid nitrogen to levitate off of the ground if a magnetic current is present. Because of how ridiculously expensive and dangerous liquid nitrogen is, I don’t think we can expect this on the commercial market anytime soon.

One can always dream.

Official: US Market Getting 245 HP Lexus IS 200t In 2016

By | Lexus News | No Comments

According to our friends over at Autoblog on their piece that they dropped earlier yesterday (June. 30, 2015), it looks like Lexus will either axe the Lexus IS250 altogether or add in a variant of the IS with the 2016 Lexus IS 200t. This is good news all around for fans of the IS as we’ve all grown to love or hate the paltry V6 that Lexus threw our way in the base model Lexus IS 250. What dropping 2 cylinders and adding in a turbo does is add about 37 HP and 73 lbs-ft of torque to the 3,500 lb sedan. This is a big deal people.
