    This is a 1965 Volkswagen microbus that's been meticulously restored and stretched into a limo. It's up for sale on eBay now for $220,000, which could probably get you just about any other car you've ever dreamed of. Maybe two. Maybe even with enough left over for a decent p... / Continue →

    This is a video from the Super-Fan Builds webseries (previously: a Hobbit-hole litter box and Bioshock aquarium) documenting the construction of a custom Batmobile stroller for young Collin and his father Josh. It turns out pretty amazing. Sure it'll take up the whole sidewal... / Continue →

    This is a video of Howe and Howe's Minirip all terrain vehicle. My God, what I wouldn't give to run over a pile of my enemies with that thing. The looks on their faces when they see me coming, now that -- that's the sort of thing I daydream about. Also, that I'm tiny and swi... / Continue →

    This is artist Rebekah Stieg Knuth's custom Boba Fett wrapped Hyundai Veloster. That way she can tell her Veloster from all the other Velosters in the mall parking lot. You know how I locate my car in a crowded parking lot? Look for the nicest car I can find, then hot-wire i... / Continue →

    This is the 'Upside Down Truck' built by mechanic Rick Sullivan. The truck, which took Rick six months and $6,000 to build, is actually a 1991 Ford Ranger with a 1995 Ford F-150 body placed on top, upside-down. Impressive work. I just wish the video didn't feature so many ot... / Continue →

    This is the Back to the Future Hoverboard edition of Zboard's electric skateboard. The boards have pressure-sensitive pads above the wheels, so you press the forward pad to go forward, and the rear one to stop. They reach a top speed of 17MPH (not bad!) with a range of 5-10 m... / Continue →

    This is the 'zombie proof bicycle' built by UK-based bike insurance company ETA for Halloween. It has everything you need to provide just enough false sense of security to confidently ride headlong into a horde of the undead and get torn limb from limb, including: an electric ... / Continue →

    This is the Stained Glass Driverless Sleeper Car of the Future designed and built by British artist Dominic Wilcox. It has a bed inside, is covered with an egg-shaped stained glass exterior, and is Dominic's idea of what cars might look like in 2059. Cool design, but I couldn... / Continue →

    This is a fly-by of J.J. Abram's Millennium Falcon for the new Star Wars movie. Apparently J.J. and Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder like poking fun at each other via Twitter (I guess that's how you get your kicks when you're a rich, successful director instead of huntin... / Continue →

    Remember the story of HitchBOT, the robot that was going to attempt to hitchhike the 6,000km across Canada from Halifax to Victoria? Well, despite my best efforts (I texted a friend in Canada and told him if he happened to see HitchBOT to tear it's head off), he successfully m... / Continue →

    Note: Higher-res version HERE. This is a shot posted by director Zack Snyder of the new Batmobile from the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman movie. As you can see, it looks like one of Michael Bay's Transformers. That sucks too because I bet a friend they were going to bring back... / Continue →

    Originally a ThinkGeek April Fools' product, the company will be selling real Flux Capacitor USB Car Chargers later this month for $25. The unit has two USB ports, each capable of providing 2.1-amps to charge your electronics. Hmm, that sounds like a far cry from the 1.21-jig... / Continue →

    This is a video of what it sounds like to rev your car after jamming a bunch of party blowouts up the exhaust pipe. SPOILER: Like you just walked into a surprise party. Oh my God, everyone's here! My parents and my brother and sisters and their significant others -- and all ... / Continue →

    18-year old Skyler Connor has been charged with disorderly conduct after waving a rubber dildo out the window of a friend's car while traveling on Route 30 near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (today must be your lucky day, Florida). For reference, you should never wave a rubber dild... / Continue →

    These are a couple shots and a video of Batman cruising a highway in Japan on his custom trike. What's he doing in Japan? No clue. Maybe he cleaned up all the crime in Gotham already. Or maybe Gotham is such a shithole he just gave up and decided fighting crime in Japan wou... / Continue →

    This is some (presumably Russian) dashcam footage of exactly what the title says: a speeding motorcyclist crashing into the back of a car and managing to land on his feet on the roof of the vehicle. Now I know I called him a ninja in the title, but in reality ninjas don't cras... / Continue →

    This is the raptor bicycle (technically a tricycle) built by Norwegian artist Markus Moestue. I would ride that. I would ride that ALL NIGHT LONG. Not in the street though, it doesn't have a bike light. Could you imagine getting rear-ended by that thing? HEAVEN. I got the... / Continue →
