    This is some dash-cam footage from Russia (where else?) of a guy in a Toyota Camry constantly trying to get in front of and stop another Ruskie in a Nissan MPV, presumably to stab him with the the knife he has. He finally gets the guy to swerve off the road into a ditch, then ... / Continue →

    This is a video from Audi of two R4 Avants outfitted with hood-mounted paintball guns and cameras, dueling it out in a warehouse. It looks like fun and I'm more than a little disappointed they didn't ask me to participate. Plus if I was about to lose I would just ditch the pa... / Continue →

    This is a terrible, butt-ass quality video of some lunatic trying to drive his Mazda off a tow truck's crane. Presumably because he's wasted and wants the police to shoot him. Also, I've never seen a tow-truck like that -- it kind of reminds me of one of those claw machines f... / Continue →

    I didn't know you could drive in heaven! Driving by mind. It's a scary thought(!!!1) because most people are just texting anyways and I'm not sure how a car's gonna interpret that kind of input. You (texting): 'BOOTY CALL!' Car: drive on sidewalk. Freie Universität Berl... / Continue →

    Geekologists, I'm leaving today to drive 2,100 miles cross country to Los Angeles, which I will be calling home until it chews me up and spits me out and tries to urinates on me before I roundhouse kick it in the pecker (I may be down, but I'm never out). That's my actual set... / Continue →

    Lara Croft (seen here) is best known for raiding tombs and being the relic hunting alter-ego of Angelina Jolie. And now, the town of her origin is honoring her with a road, Lara Croft Way. Hey, that's cool, but I've had a road named after me for years. GW Parkway, anybody? ... / Continue →

    This isn't the first time a programmable roadsign has been hacked, and it probably won't be the last. How do I know? I'm blogging from the keypad of one of the things right now! Now how do you spell "handsomest"? Is that right -- it looks funny. At least two Florida Depart... / Continue →

    Laser Crosswalks are the crosswalks of the future. You can tell because it has 'laser' in the name. Pretty much anything with 'laser' in it is gonna be a huge hit in the future (including cereal). Don't believe me? Just stare at this laser eye-toy for a minute. Aaaaand now... / Continue →

    Raytheon, a company best known for my brother and I both swearing we saw an airplane land on top of one of their buildings in Huntsville, Alabama, has received a Navy contract to draw up the initial design of a powerful burning 100-kW Fee Electron Laser (which may or may not lo... / Continue →

    This is what the world's smallest (but not the lowest) street-legal car looks like. Because this is the world's smallest street-legal car. I don't know if you understand logic, but my argument is infallible. The car, which measures a scant 39" high x 26" wide, is allegedly t... / Continue →

    Zapatag is a user submitted database of bad/inconsiderate/female/rude/raging drivers' license plate numbers and their alleged infractions. I have no idea of the legality of such a system, but quite frankly, I don't care -- I think this is a great idea. Provided, of course, I ... / Continue →

    A Google Street View car in France spotted these high-brow citizens pissing in the middle of the highway together (I'll hold yours if you hold mine). I guess they don't have rest stops in France. Still, you've got to commend them on their technique. It's similar to what I do... / Continue →

    Let's face it, every motorcyclist wishes they could cruise down the street looking like Pac-Man is eating their face. Well loyal Geekologist MMach made the dream a reality when he painted his helmet to look like the icon character. But instead of munching dots, now he munches... / Continue →

    That's right folks, apparently a truckload of raptors got loose in Hamilton County, Indiana, and drivers are being unsurprisingly stupid. "It's kind of crazy. I'm totally confused," said one motorist. "I'm kind of expecting ... dinosaurs to run down the road, or something." ... / Continue →

    A Google Maps van hit a deer while out on the prowl -- and recorded and uploaded the whole damn thing to the live version of Google Maps! WTF!? The Google employee had to have known that they hit the deer but the more interesting thought is why did they proceed to upload the ... / Continue →

    Are you surprised? Of course not. What's there to be surprised about? You post an article about how to hack something, and people try it. Simple as that. (Traffic Controller Bruce) Jones, who has one of only two keys to the locked access panels on the portable signs, sai... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to put your own message on one of those portable road signs along the highway? Well now you can with just a little tampering and a whole lot of illegal! Unfortunately, because many children read this website, you'll have to follow the link after the jump to find o... / Continue →

    The A-10 Thunderbolt II (aka Warthog) is a plane that never fails to make me swoon. I don't know if it's the styling or the 30mm Gatling gun in it's mouth, but my god does that plane do something to me. And now the guys over at ICON Motorsports have gone and made an A-10 insp... / Continue →

    A group of sickos at Carnegie Mellon have decided to automate the world's largest truck, a 3,550-horsepower, 700-ton behemoth designed to haul 240-ton loads. Autonomous vehicle technology is pretty much in its infancy," said Tony Stentz, a professor at CMU involved in the proj... / Continue →

    This picture (and the others after the jump) were created by Dutch architecture firm NL as a creative exercise in design and were recently presented at the Venice Architecture Biennale. I have no idea what this has to do with anything, but now I want to be an architect. And a... / Continue →
