    Translogic tries out water-jet-powered Flyboard
    1349819100

    The crew from Translogic seem to be on a water power kick. Not too long ago, host Bradley Hasemeyer tried his hand at a water-powered jet pack, and while cool, the machine's ridiculous price tag seems a bit out of the realm of reality for common folk. Now Translogic has turned its attention to ...

    1344099420

    Translogic: How BMW is helping long jumpers leap farther
    1343148360

    You'd think the only partnership between BMW and Olympic athletes would come in sales and marketing. Make some appearances, shake some hands and sign a few autographs, appear in TV commercials and other advertising – that sort of stuff. But BMW's commitment to the U.S. Olympic Team ...

    Translogic looks at Detroit's transportation infrastructure
    1336074240

    Sometimes it seems that the rest of the country takes some sort of not-so-secret delight from Detroit's slow but steady decay. The truth is, the sprawling municipality faces a swath of unique challenges that are only compounded by a dearth of resources. Look no further than the city's ...

    Translogic celebrates 100 episodes, goes to Disney World
    1335457800

    So, we think the crew at our sister site Translogic have lost their minds. Either that or they're trying to steal our jobs.

    1332880080

    Most gearheads know the Opel Ampera is the European near-twin of the Chevy Volt.

    Translogic circles back to check out the YikeBike
    1329343020

    We've seen a lot of motorized bicycles over the years, but none look quite like the YikeBike. It looks like a miniature nineteenth century Penny Farthing bike that has no pedals and a backwards handle bar. But once you go beyond the looks of the YikeBike, the engineering is pretty ...
