During media days for the 2008 New York auto show, Mitsubishi drove its electric iMiEV up and down the hall, because it could. While gas-powered cars were prohibited from driving in the hall, the iMiEV was allowed to troll by the booths of its automotive competitors.
The perfect birthday gift for the aspiring megalomaniac: a "video wall cube" that every command and control center needs.
Mitsubishi's new "MegaView Wall" has an 80-inch with 1,400 x 1,050 resolution, but that's not what sets it apart from the rest of the Dr. Strangelove war-room equipment on the market. The secret ingredient, according to Slippery Brick, is a "proprietary, high-powered projection engine" that gives it brightness levels that are a vast improvement over the "notoriously dim" cubes of the past. It sure beats Stratego and Battleship. But … Read more
If you're tired of the boring facades on average Blu-ray players, the mirror finishes of the new Mitsubishi Electric recorders is guaranteed to get your attention. And pretty faces aside, the DVR-BZ100 and BZ200 also combine versatile DVD Blu-ray recording with hard drive capacities of 250GB and 500GB, respectively, according to Akihabara News. Another notable feature is their touch-screen remotes, which have color displays and flexible softkeys tailored for specific functions. But alas, this is another Japan-only release.

We've gathered photos from our Car Tech reviews of every major automaker's software interface. These interfaces are what you see on a car's LCD, and we've covered manufacturers from Mercedes-Benz to GM. Many of the interfaces are poorly designed, probably taken straight from the original equipment manufacturer who built the car's navigation system and stereo interface. For our comparison, we concentrated on music screens, as these show on-screen buttons and fonts. Take a look and tell us which company you think offers the best and worst interface.
At the Geneva auto show in March, Mitsubishi shows off a concept car that looks like a hatchback version of the Lancer Evolution X. The concept, dubbed Prototype-S, follows a consistent line of new concepts displayed by the company at recent auto shows. At the Detroit auto show, we saw the sporty, diesel-powered Concept-RA. The Prototype-S builds on Mitsubishi's new design language and power train technology, offering a variation on the current theme. For its power train, the Prototype-S gets Mitsubishi's intercooled and turbocharged inline four mated to a new dual-clutch transmission, similar to that used in the … Read more
Mitsubishi brings turbodiesel religion to the drift crowd. We take a first look from the 2008 Detroit auto show.
The MacBook Air, unfurled today, might be the thinnest notebook on the market today, but it's not the thinnest of all time.
That distinction belongs to the Pedion, an ill-fated notebook developed by Mitsubishi and Hewlett-Packard back in 1997.The Pedion measured 18.4 millimeters thick, which comes out to 0.7244 inch thick. Although the Air gets to 0.16 inch at the thinnest point, the Air is 0.76 inch thick at the beefiest portion, making it minutely thicker. Mitsubishi released the Pedion in early 1998.
The Pedion, however, wasn't exactly the paragon of quality or … Read more
At the 2008 Detroit Auto Show, diesel cars grabbed their share of the limelight, as manufacturers such as Audi, Mercedes-Benz, and BMW prepare to import new diesel vehicles to the U.S. New diesel engines promise performance equivalent to gasoline cars but much better mileage, and new technology means cleaner emissions.
For the last year, we eagerly followed the development of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X, lapping up every new detail like a thirsty dog. With the launch date rapidly approaching, we considered trying suspended animation to make the time go by faster, but Mitsubishi just threw us for a loop, showing off the Lancer Ralliart at the 2008 Detroit auto show. Ralliart is Mitsubishi's tuner brand, delivering hopped-up versions of its existing models. The Lancer Ralliart unveiled in Detroit seems identical to the Evo X, spinning us out as we try and figure out which one we want more. … Read more
While rear-projection seems to be losing steam, Mitsubishi is doing its best to breathe new life into non-flat HDTVs with its introduction of the world's first model with a picture powered by a laser-based light engine. Unfortunately, the product's smoke-and-hyperbole-filled introduction at the Palms hotel's Rain nightclub, while long on lighting effects, was short on details. Pricing and available screen sizes were not announced -- only that the product will hit the market this year.
