    These are some renderings of the Spaceballs Eagle 5 LEGO set proposed by LEGO Ideas member NvdK. Why he didn't actually build a real one is beyond me. Will the set ever reach production? I doubt it. If it does though it should come with the necessary pieces to convert the sh... / Continue →

    This is the Tim Burton inspired Batmobile motorcycle trike built by Game Over Cycles in Portland, Oregon. They did a great job. Now Batman needs to get a custom t-shirt with "IF YOU CAN READ THIS, ROBIN FELL OFF' printed on the back. He should probably get a Catwoman version... / Continue →

    This is a video of Dale Walter and his Mad Max Interceptor. Dale spent $5,000 on a 1972 Australian Ford Falcon, then sent the piece of rusting junk to the vehicle customizers at Mad Max Cars, who, five years and $120,000 later, returned to him with this. If he had sent it to ... / Continue →

    This is a Samsung 'Safety Truck', an 18-wheeler with a live feed of what's in front of the truck being displayed on four screens in the rear so you know whether or not you're going to die trying to pass it. Not a bad idea. I'm all for increased road safety, but I'm also all f... / Continue →

    This is a game of match the custom Star Wars license plate with the vehicle it belongs to. Can you match them all? I matched zero. H4N S0L0? What the hell kind of clue is that? "It's Han Solo spelled with a 4 and 0's." Well I'll be snookered! Okay so which one does that ... / Continue →

    This is a parody video created by the folks at Rooster Teeth imagining if Microsoft's Bing developed a self-driving car. It was cute enough for a watch. I liked the last minute. The last minute is always the best. Take sex for example. You can't argue with that. Keep goin... / Continue →

    "Hey McFly you bojo, those boards don't work on water!" "Unless you've got POWER!" This is a video of Catalina Alexandru Duru traveling 275.9 meters (905-feet, 2 inches) on a hoverboard. Except not the kind of hoverboard you imagined, this is more like a quadrocopter you can ... / Continue →

    This is the custom R2-D2 wrap that Instructables user mimaki cg60 created for an old VW bus. He spent over 50 hours in CorelDraw and Photoshop perfecting the design and adhering it to the vehicle. You can use the same process to make an R2-D2 wrap for any car though, provided... / Continue →

    The GolfBoard is the $6,500 cross between a golf cart and an electric skateboard. It carries your golf bag as you ride between shots. Obviously, I'm going to ride mine off the high dive and into the country club's swimming pool. Also, I get the feeling some snobby golf cours... / Continue →

    These are closeups of ten (of more than 150) of the jerry-rigged vehicles created for the new Mad Max movie. What's your favorite? I like the muscle car one on treads. I've always dreamed of owning a vehicle with treads. Specifically, a tank. I want a tank. You know what ... / Continue →

    In an effort to increase efficiency, Ford has just filed a patent for an automatic gearbox with 11 forward gears. For reference, most new cars have eight or nine. Me? I just filed a patent for a car with two hundred gears. "No you didn't." Yes, I did. "No, you drew a pict... / Continue →

    It's not actually towing the other car, it's pushing it. The BMW in front is the car with the trouble, the car behind it just taps it a little bit to keep it up to speed. It's the guy in the trunk's job to hold the tire to cushion the pushin'. Plus smoke that cigarette. Su... / Continue →

    This is a short video of skier Erik Sunnerheim pulling himself around on a frozen lake with the help of a chainsaw. It looks dangerous. Like hunting great white sharks and using yourself as bait. Which I have done before because I am tough as nails. Just kidding, I lost a ... / Continue →

    This is the Boneshaker Big Wheel, the brainchild of Ron Schroer. Pedaling powers a bunch of Theo Jansen kinetic motion sculpture inspired walking legs in the rear that push the bike forward. It is probably not the bike you want to be riding if you're trying to get away from t... / Continue →

    This are several videos of Mercedes Benz's vision of the future: the F015 concept car. It can drive itself autonomously, has four chairs that can swivel in any direction, a manual steering wheel that folds out Flight Of The Navigator style in case you're really bored of having... / Continue →

    These are the Sidewinding Circular Skates available from (who else?) Hammacher Schlemmer. They move similar to acaster board, but with nothing actually connecting the two wheels. I don't know about being a post modern skateboard though, because you can't even perform any tric... / Continue →

    This is a video of the scout trooper on speeder bike quadrocopter made and flown by copter hobbyist and Star Wars fan Adam Woodworth. It is one of the most impressive quadrocopter mods I've seen, which is saying a lot because I've seen them all, including a full scale naked la... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for the Skoda Fabia in which they argue the car is so attention stealing that you won't notice the scenery changing. Obviously, the fact you don't notice the scenery changing has nothing to do with the car, and everything to do with the constant cuts in th... / Continue →

    Note: First video has tons of cussing on account of being launched like a rocket. Second video has all the cuss words edited out. Don't watch that one. This is a video of Brooks from DragTimes demonstrating the Tesla P85D's 'Insane Mode' on unsuspecting passengers. After co... / Continue →

    Because a lot of businesses are worried the New England Patriots will steal their Super Bowl commercials before the big game, some companies have decided to take a proactive approach and begin releasing their ads early (previously: Bud Light's Pac-Man commercial). This is Merc... / Continue →
