Car racing in Cuba
The 1959 Cuban revolution triggered a trade embargo by the US. Car imports, besides a few Ladas and Moskvitches from the Soviet Union, were virtually impossible, forcing Cubans to make do with what they had. It?s the reason Cuba has so many Buicks, Chevys, Oldsmobiles and Fords from the Fifties. Cubans have become masters in repairing these cars and now they're able to race them again, as they did before the revolution. http://www.topgear.com/car-news/adventures/road-havanas-street-racers#2

London tests driverless shuttle service
The UK?s Transport Research Laboratory is testing a driverless shuttle service in the London borough of Greenwich. The vehicle will ferry participants up and down a preset route. It can travel at speeds of up to 10 mph and is capable of seating four. The UK government is hoping these sorts of autonomous shuttles will play a big part in the country?s public transport, especially in areas not served by bus, train, or tram routes. http://www.theverge.com/2017/4/5/15188650/london-driverless-shuttle-service-pod-greenwich

A robot that can deal with lawn, leaves and snow
The world's first 3-in-1 autonomous robot can mow the lawn, clean up leaves, and remove snow. It cuts and mulches the lawn a fraction of an inch every time, picks up the leaves before they pile up, and removes snow a few inches at a time while it's still falling. It has a rechargeable battery and will automatically dock itself in its charging station when it needs a power boost. www.thekobi.com

A TV that only appears when you want to watch it

When you want to watch TV you pull the bottom of the TV mount away from the wall and gas springs will rotate the TV 180 degrees for viewing. When you're done watching TV, you flip the mount back around to completely conceal the TV. Adjustable brackets allow you to install any 30 to 65 inch flat-screen TV and extendable versions are available. www.hvtvmounts.com
