The gang's all here (fine, mostly here) for our inaugural episode of RoundAbout. This week with the Frankfurt Auto Show on the horizon and with an eye toward more enlightening things to come we bring you the 'Better Driving Through Technology' episode. Come economic meltdown, come animal-borne plague, come celebrity deaths, despite it all, technology never only sometimes fails us.
On today's show we have a car that looks like the successor to the storied EV-1, the auto industry's answer to Velcro and roadways that will solve the energy crisis. Plus, our features this week: In the Garage with the Ford Raptor, a supercar AutoGadget that only a supertool could love, the Blind Spot story of the week and more!
