New McLaren high-performance hybrid supercar enters final testing

After more or less ten months of announcing it, McLaren reports that its new high-performance hybrid supercar is now in its final round of development, which includes running the car on public roads.

Due to launch in the middle of next year, the hybrid supercar represents a new era of electrification for the popular British sports car marque, as production on its Sports Series range nears its end.

The High-Performance Hybrid powertrain is propelled by an all-new V6 internal combustion engine, and will provide medium-range EV-only drive capability. This new, lighter V6 engine, possessing a front axle electric configuration, will reportedly have a 0 to 100kmph acceleration time of 2.38secs.

Bose enters gaming market with QuietComfort 35 II Gaming Headset

Bose’s QuietComfort 35 II headphones are among the most comfortable noise-canceling headphones ever made, so it’s not surprising that Bose has converted them into a gaming headset , with the addition of a “noise-rejecting” boom microphone and PC desktop controller.
