Motorcyclists can park for free in Sydney for a 12-month trial. During the trial, motorcyclists and scooter riders will no longer need to buy or display a ticket in parking meter zones within the City of Sydney local government area, which includes the CBD, Pyrmont, Redfern, Ultimo, Darlinghurst, Paddington and Kings Cross.

Here's an interesting weekend project.. a guy has built his own F-35 fighter jet (kinda). Sure, it is a scaled version and it doesn't come with a demonic helmet, but you can actually drive the thing like a car and the level of detail is absolutely amazing. Also on the plane front, there's an electronic warfare variant of the Super Hornet now. Now finishing its testing phase as it gets ready to enter action next (year), the EA-18G will replace the current and aging EA-6B Prowler.

Embedding a GPS display in a rear-view mirror is a fairly neat idea. By integrating the carís rear-view mirror with an a fully functioning GPS and camera mode, drivers will have everything they need in map data, Bluetooth and car cameras in one single easy-to-view area of the vehicle.
