The American Honda Motor Co. Inc. has introduced a Honda Civic hybrid custom-designed and autographed by the pop act Panic at the Disco. The green car will hit the road with the band during its spring and summer tour and will be given away on July 31. Fans can register for free at concert appearances or at the website: hondacivictour.com. Entrants must be 18.
The band personalized the car with custom interior and exterior designs, making the hybrid the ultimate fan memorabilia. Custom choices by the band include a “time machine” interior with burgundy leather door panels and armrests, diamond-patterned leather seats and luxe buttoned headrests. The car also features a futuristic sound system tied to a satellite-linked navigation system. The hybrid gets 40 mpg in the city and 45 mpg on the highway.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
