    Yesterday we featured a first person point of view from a LEGO train. And today? Hot Wheels cars barreling down a track built on the beach. I thought the coolest shot was the last one from the camera facing backwards on the front car (the one I used for the screenshot). The... / Continue →

    This is a video of a hero traffic cop in China casually setting up road cones to divert traffic around a collapsing sink hole after he notices the ground begin to crack. Based on the way traffic is behaving, I'm surprised drivers even went around the cones instead of taking th... / Continue →

    This is a video of KTRK Houston news reporter Steve Campion rescuing an older gentleman who drove his car right into a heavily flooded street. The people in the white car ahead of him? I'm pretty sure they drowned. I'm kidding, I'm sure they're fine. This guy though -- what ... / Continue →

    This is the BB-8 tire cover spotted by Redditor dubsallday on a road in California. Pretty clever. There's a video of BB-8 in action after the jump which doesn't play right in Firefox but does in Chrome and I don't know about Safari because I didn't test that. I'm going to m... / Continue →

    This is a video of KTVU San Francisco Bay Area reporter Alex Savidge almost getting hit by a car during a live news report. Thankfully, Alex's cameraman Chip Vaughan yelled at him to get out of the way, which he managed to do just in the nick of time. This is exactly why news... / Continue →

    This is a Smart Car with a photographic wrap to make it look like the driver is riding a motorcycle. I think it's real, but it could be a Photoshop job. At first I thought the front fork of the motorcycle extended past the fender of the car, but I think the bottom of the fend... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Nissan Murano crossover SUV with gigantic 34-inch Amani wheels. It looks like a toy. It's not a toy though, it's a real car and will still hurt if it hits you, even if it does look like a Hot Wheels banged a golf cart. You know I had a friend try to run ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a private outdoor parking garage in China. Apparently they're all the rage right now. Although I'm a little skeptical from the video since it never actually shows the thing fully closing. I imagine because it never actually did and just kept trying to clos... / Continue →

    Seen here on what appears to be a 4,000-lane highway, a checkpoint on the other side of a tollbooth causes a bottleneck and massive traffic jam outside of Beijing. Honestly, if I had been stuck in this I probably would have spontaneously human combusted. I do not cope well wi... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Hammel Red Giant Car Shredder eating a bunch of engine blocks (previously: a shredder eating a whole car before crunching on a bunch of engine blocks for dessert). Do you know how tough engine blocks are? You can't bend them with your hands, I can tell yo... / Continue →
