    BMW was one of the biggest corporate supporters of the 2012 London Olympics, earning the right to be its official car sponsor. But it wasn't just ponying up a few dozen 7 Series for the IOC that got it this plum gig. BMW made a commitment to meet specific CO2 emissions targets for the vehicles it ...

    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 ...

    So, we think the crew at our sister site Translogic have lost their minds. Either that or they're trying to steal our jobs. While nominally a show and blog about mobility, most weeks Translogic is discovering all manner of geeky automotive technology, while driving alternative-fuel vehicles ...

    Translogic identifies differences of Opel Ampera
    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 ...

    Translogic explores GM's rapid prototyping lab
    1313009700

    Rapid prototyping is the process of turning math and chemistry into a physical item. Well, that is our extremely dumbed-down explanation, because the real explanation is soaring hundreds of feet over our heads. Still, it's a process that is used rather extensively in the automotive industry ...
