Mercedes has revealed their very own concept of self-driving cars. They call it the “F 015”. When in autonomous mode, the grille lights up. It also displays the words “Stop” and “Slow Down” to badass drivers behind you. Because this is still a concept car, this isn’t expected to hit the road any time soon.

LG’s Twin Wash System is probably the future of washing machines. It allows you to wash two loads at the same time – one regular load and one mini-load. As of now, the price is still TBD.
