Jaguar’s latest concept car, FUTURE-TYPE (they seem to want it shouted in all-caps) looks a lot like other deep-future concept cars we’ve seen before, though there is one key difference here. Instead of just making a concept car, Jaguar has also made you a life partner, in the form of an artificially intelligent…
Formula One steering wheels have colorful knobs and buttons for everything under the sun. Here’s a close-up shot of Max Verstappen’s Red Bull steering wheel from this year’s United States Grand Prix.
Google’s self-driving koala car doesn’t have one. Recent concepts from Mercedes-Benz and Volvo have ones that retract when they aren’t needed. But for now, nothing is more intrinsically tied to the act of driving than the steering wheel. Does it have a long-term future?
Dale Earnhardt Jr. has had a series of unfortunate events at today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Talladega. After getting back on track after a hard hit, Earnhardt’s steering wheel came off the hub. No big deal; Dale’s got hands.

Imagine you're the police. Imagine you're in your police car. Imagine eating a donut. Imagine complaining about life to your partner. Imagine seeing a car with two obviously blown tires drive by. Imagine pulling that car over. Imagine seeing that the driver driving the car was using a makeshift steering wheel made…
You can prepare for a lot of things, but how does a driver prepare for his steering wheel popping off in the middle of a race? But, that's exactly what happened at Saturday's Porsche GT3 Cup sprint race at Sebring.
The owner of a 2011 Chevy Cruze that had its steering wheel fall off while driving at 65 mph posted this video to prove his point. It's a case study in how one person can sway a giant corporation.
What do you do when you've got a project car that lacks good junkyard parts availability, yet you want to keep the budget within reach of 24 Hours Of LeMons qualification? Parts interchange!
The normally stuffy suits at IBM must've raided the ex-Xerox PARC labs for their latest project, as it's a bit out of left field. IBM is working on a steering wheel that has the ability to read a driver's lips and also serve as a drum machine. It does have some practical uses, as well — as if anything could be more…
We've been seeing GPS navigation veer away from the traditional dash- or windshield-mounted form factor, like with the rear-view mirror, but now we have the Takara CSW steering wheel that includes the navigation built directly into the steering wheel. Unfortunately, it's not a big, pretty LCD screen, but rather a…
