At the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), Volkswagen unveiled a new I.D. BUZZ Concept Bus, their autonomous version of the classic big family van. If the modern microbus looks familiar, that’s because it’s based on the original Type 2 (aka Kombi/Transporter/Microbus/Camper/VW Bus) that’s been popular since the ’60s. This iteration is an all-electric vehicle with a range up to 270 miles, convertible seating for up to eight people, luggage compartments, electric all-wheel drive, 369 horsepower and plenty of tech. There’s a heads up display that projects information via augmented reality, a flexible center console and an autonomous driving mode that will allow you to rest on the way to your next destination. We’ll probably never see this exact version of the concept hit the market, but we wouldn’t mind taking a ride in something similar if VW ever produces it.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
