Yes, really.</p> <p>On the outside the eagle-eyed Mini fan may notice elliptical LED headlights, the old Mini-inspired hexagonal grille and a few tweaks to improve aerodynamics - all of which are welcome additions in the aesthetical department.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/ben-griffin" title="View user profile.">Ben Griffin</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Disco inferno </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>But it's the interior that rocks our boat, mainly thanks to a "Mini Disco" floor, Union Jack elastic straps in the door cards for holding bits and bobs, ambient lighting and a clever digital version of the central circular display that lets you check your speed in either analogue, digital or even 3D formats.</p> <p>For days when you need to chill, you can use the Driving Control Experience switch to jump between 'pure and focused' and 'interconnected' modes, both which adjust the car's ambient lighting to improve your mood. Interconnected mode also happens to be where the disco floor comes into play, bringing your footwell to life in a wall of changing colour. Just remember to look where you're going.</p> <p>The Mini Vision concept is in itself a bit special. It was created using a clever virtual 3D hologram system that BMW uses to test and fine-tune any ideas on top of the more typical sketch and clay methods.</p> <p>Although it's only a concept, BMW will reveal what the actual production Mini will look like in November – so we'll get to see then just how much of the Vision makes it to production intact.</p> <p>If you prefer a mellow trip in the countryside to a nightclub on wheels, you could always go for one of three <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/how-much-can-you-fit-mini-more-youd-think/news">Mini Campervan concepts</a> instead and head to a beach at your earliest convenience.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Mini Vision" alt="Mini Vision" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/mini-vision.jpg?1375063822" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Mini Vision" alt="Mini Vision" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/mini-vision-02.jpg?1375063822" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/bmw/minis-next-car-will-be-mobile-disco-possibly/news#comments BMW Cars Mini Fri, 26 Jul 2013 12:14:07 +0000 Ben Griffin 1425125 at http://www.stuff.tv LG Mini announced – mini by name, mini by nature http://www.stuff.tv/lg/lg-mini-announced-%E2%80%93%C2%A0mini-name-mini-nature/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> LG has unveiled what it is claiming to be the smallest, slimmest 3.2-inch touchscreen handset on the market, fittingly called the LG Mini.More specs a </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="356" height="236" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/168820bd9mn.jpg?1364406530" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>LG has unveiled what it is claiming to be the smallest, slimmest 3.2-inch touchscreen handset on the market, fittingly called the LG Mini.</p> <p>More specs are expected closer to launch, but we do know that the Mini will pack a 5 megapixel camera, 3G and Wi-fi connectivity, A-GPS, video capability and FM radio into its skinny metal shell.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/phone/stuff/lg-mini-announced-%E2%80%93%C2%A0mini-name-mini-nature </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/lg/lg-mini-announced-%E2%80%93%C2%A0mini-name-mini-nature/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/lg/lg-mini-announced-%E2%80%93%C2%A0mini-name-mini-nature/news#comments LG Mini Tue, 09 Feb 2010 06:00:00 +0000 admin 14029 at http://www.stuff.tv
