Blast has a story about the cars of the future, a collection of kickass concept vehicles from all over the world – well, mostly Europe and Japan but there is one Buick. American makers are busy figuring out how to get a cup holder next to the gas pedal.

One interesting little car is the Mini SUV with Center Globe. The Globe is a glowing orb that shows most of your GPS and read-out functions and you can also use to surf the web. Instead of a key, you put a little ball next to the globe which rolls down into place and triggers the engine.

The Buick Invicta has 250-horsepower engine and, ummm, not much else. Power is king, people.
