Nissan Propilot Golf Ball Will Make You One-putt Every Single Green

Nissan ProPilot golf ball will make you one-putt every single green

Attention golfers: Put down that $5 Titleist. You don't want it anymore. At least on the green, it's not the best you can do. Nissan has your back with a brand new golf ball that finds the hole all on its own, so long as you're putting. It's called the ProPilot golf ball, and the video provided is really something (watch above). How does it work? First, you need an overhead camera. This camera detects the position of the ball and cup in real time. We're thinking we could play this one off as wanting to vlog our golf game with our buddies. Pay no mind to the floating camera above, we say. Once the ball starts moving, a monitoring system calculates the correct route needed based on the ball's movement. It then adjusts the trajectory accordingly. We're sure all the computer hardware will fit in your golf cart. Maybe you're worried you didn't hit the ball hard enough? It doesn't matter. There's an internal electric motor in the golf ball that can provide enough force to move the ball on its own. Sure, that's creepy, but it'll also save you the embarrassment of coming up inches short on that next 20-foot birdie putt. At this point, we're sure you all want to be the kid in the video absolutely shredding it on the green. It's now that we have to break your heart, and tell you that this golf ball is only a concept. Nissan hasn't shown any intention to sell a commercial version of its entire setup, which would likely cost thousands if it did. Honestly, though, that may be less than what you'd pay in a lifetime of golfing lessons. The company is going to let folks try it out, so long as you're in Yokohama, Japan. Visitors to the company HQ from Aug. 29 through Sept. 1 will be allowed to feel like a putting god for a short time. Nissan is selling it as ProPilot Assist (its driver assistance system), but for golf. Now if only Nissan could figure out a way to make sure our drives landed in the fairway, too ...

2020 Toyota Supra: Here's What It Looks Like In Every Color Offered

2020 Toyota Supra: Here's what it looks like in every color offered

It would be an understatement to say that there are strong feelings on both sides of the Toyota Supra argument. Most either love it, or abhor it. This one is for the former, because Toyota has given us the full color palette for the 2020 model year car. If you were thinking about hopping on the Supra bandwagon when it came out, here's your chance to begin formulating the configuration you want.

The first Supras built will all be the Launch Editions, available in Absolute Zero White, Nocturnal Black and Renaissance Red 2.0. All of those feature the red mirror cap accents and black wheels. In fall of this year the rest of the color options become available. Nitro Yellow has to be a front runner on many folks' lists — this one is only a $400 option. But Downshift Blue looks like it could be another popular way to spec the Supra.

Lisa's In and Around Tokyo: Tomigaya--For chocolate, it hits the sweet spot every time

Such mysterious names! Bamboo Shoot's Village, Mushroom's Rural Settlement and Small Branch? And, English names that give no hint of the product, like Look, Black Thunder and Koala's March?

Well, Choco Baby, Pocky, and Toppo lend a little connection to its naming as you might be able to imagine the outline of the product. Tirol chocolate? Now we're getting somewhere--finally, a name that conjures up a connection. The Swiss are famous for consuming about 10 kilograms of chocolate per person each year. Wait, the Tirol Alps are in Austria. Well, close enough.
