Recently a design team composed of Artem Smirnov and Vladimir Panchenko took on the task of designing a new autonomously driving semi tractor for German automobile company Audi. During the early process of their design efforts, the two decided to keep a couple of options, which they developed into the images you see here.
“[The plan failed,” the team stated, in that they were unable to pick the best of their two designs. They presented both of their #TruckForAudi ideas to the internet world for feedback.
Which of the two designs is most to your liking?
Option A: An silver-finished electric truck for highways, which is autonomously driving.
Option B: An black and red electric truck show car.
So in terms of functionality, the team saw their first design as one that would be more likely to be employed in the transportation industry, and more likely to be purchased by owner-operators and large freight companies.
The second design, meanwhile, was not envisioned as a likely working truck. The open cockpit on top of the cabover tractor might have tipped you off.

The company ZF Friedrichshafen made the presentation of its products through a transparent car.
The Consumer Electronics Show is the world’s largest consumer electronics trade fair, which every year is held in January in Las Vegas. In recent years, more and more space in the exhibition halls has been used to occupy exhibitions for automotive companies.
General Motors CEO Mary Barra: “We will see more change in the industry in the next 5 to 10 years than we have in the last 50.”
So does that mean we’re going to see transparent cars on the roads?
Apparently, manufacturers are targeting Asia with these, and maybe Pakistan as well.

On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams calls in all his friends to help put his 1986 Chevy Army truck back together for a big adventure to a big state. They add a big-block engine, big portal axles, and a big new suspension to clear really big 42-inch Maxxis tires. Then Fred and Mark from Daystar Products head to Alaska where they take their two army trucks on a four-wheeling adventure and see the highlights of Alaska, the biggest state in the nation. Fred puts his freshly revamped truck to the test and renames it the Alaskan Army Truck, while Mark shows off his 720hp Dodge Power Wagon—all while attempting to get their trucks onto a frozen glacier.

A vacuum attachment that cleans everything.
Dirt is to be found everywhere, so naturally also on delicate objects or in areas that are difficult, if not impossible to clean.
We also had that problem. So we began to think of ways to solve it! How can one construct a vacuum cleaner attachment that has the advantage of combining several methods of cleaning?
And then we had the idea: “What is not possible to do alone will be possible to do by many together.”

“When I got out of high school I was driving truck. I was just a poor boy from Memphis, Memphis,” Elvis Presley was quoted as saying.
Elvis also worked doing lawn work, operating a spindle drill press at Precision Tool (at $27 per week), a theater usher, at an upholsery company (making $109 for the one month he worked there), doing assembly at a furniture manufacturer called MARL Metal Products.
These were all while he was in high school.
Then he worked more doing assembly at M.B. Parker ($36 per week), then returned to Precision Tool, then at Crown Electric as a truck driver until he recorded his first album with Sun Records. During that time, he played some local gigs and auditioned as a vocalist, but the band-man turned Presley down, saying he should stick to truck driving “because you’re never going to make it as a singer.”
That year, 1955, he reported $25K, and the next year just under $300K. In 1958 he was making over a million a year.
