    RETROACTIVE WARNING: Spider in car picture. In news that almost makes me glad to have a ten-year old car that's ready to explode any minute, Toyota has recalled 870,000 Camrys, Venzas and Avalons built in 2012 and 2013 because spider webs can cause a blockage that makes the dr... / Continue →

    This is a series of Pokemon character cars created by Toyota and Japanese toy maker Takara Tomy as some kind of weird-ass cross promotion. And speaking of cross promotions: hot sauce and extra-absorbent toilet paper. It just makes sense. Japanese toy maker Takara Tomy is run... / Continue →

    You're riding it wrong. Toyota teamed up with bicycle-maker Parlee to develop a bike with gears you change with your mind. The future is now! Jk jk, if the future were now our transportation wouldn't even have wheels. Before riding while using its mind-reading capabilities,... / Continue →

    This is a 3-minute video mock-up of Toyota's futuristic 'Window to the World' concept. Basically it's a "smart" car window that allows a passenger to draw on it, display information (name, distance, etc.) about objects you're passing, and even zoom in on them. Admittedly, it ... / Continue →

    This is allegedly a television ad for the new Toyota Corolla. It has a bunch of weird ninja cats in it and doesn't make an ATM lick of sense. And then, to make matters worse, one of the ninja cats steals a car at the end. Now what is this teaching the nation's cat population... / Continue →

    I don't really have any more information on this robotic suit except the i-foot is a terrible name, it was made by Toyota, and appears to be the lovechild of a MechWarrior that stuck it to a Tyrannasaurus Rex (wish I could have been there). Oh, and two thumbs up on the choreog... / Continue →

    Yep, somebody pimped out a Prius. To the max. The thing has 20" rims, inverted Koenigsegg doors, what appears to be an ion cannon, a billion speakers, a couple computers, alien technology, an engine, and seats. Allegedly, the powertrain is the only thing left unmodified. W... / Continue →

    The Winglet Advanced Scooter is Toyota's attempt at a smaller, more agile Segway. I wouldn't be caught dead on one, but I would ride it until I got hit by a car and launched clear off. Then I'd be caught dead on the pavement. Win-win. Skip to the second half of the video to... / Continue →
