A few months ago we gave you a hands-on first look at Toyota’s upcoming fuel cell vehicle – and yesterday the automaker pulled out all the stops and unveiled the car’s official name, performance specs, interior, and pricing for the first time. The Toyota Mirai can travel 300 miles on a single tank of compressed hydrogen, it has 153 horsepower with 247 lb-ft of torque, and it can go from 0-60 mph in 9 seconds. The hydrogen car will be available in California in fall 2015 for under $45,000 after incentives, and it’s coming to the East Cost shortly thereafter. But the automaker is promising much more than a sleekly styled zero emission vehicle; Mirai translates to “the future” in Japanese, and Toyota’s goal is to pave the way to a hydrogen-based society. Read on for everything you need to know about the company’s first production fuel cell vehicle.

French Artisan Takes Recycled Metal to the Dark Side with this Awesome Darth Vader Bust

French artisan Alain Bellino took his craft to the dark side when he welded a number of leftover metal pieces together to create this surprisingly realistic Darth Vader bust. Bellino saves and restores a variety of items – from chandeliers to sculptures to tea sets to door knockers – and his handmade Vader sculpture is made of everything but the kitchen sink (including two recycled spoons for the eyes and an entire helmet of decorative ornaments). If you’re impressed with Bellino’s Star Wars tribute, check out his online portfolio for a look at his other creations – which include a chrome skull, a lamp made of out forks and spoons, and even a model of the Statue of Liberty!
