A new report on a fatal Tesla crash looks grim

A new report from the National Transportation Safety Board reveals that a Tesla crash in March marked the fourth person to die in an Autopilot-related incident. The car hit a truck on the highway while driving itself, sheering the roof off the car and killing the driver—a crash that was eerily similar to an earlier one in May 2016. Yet Tesla CEO Elon Musk continues to promise that Tesla cars will be fully autonomous next year.

WIRED Recommends: Dyson V11 Vacuum

According to our reviewer, the Dyson V11 totally sucks. No, really. It has powerful suction capabilities, is super light, and has intelligent sensors that calibrate power based on what surface you're on. The rub? Its $700 price tag is pretty expensive, but you get what you pay for these days.
