    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 →

    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 →

    This is the Motoped Survival Bike Black Ops Edition. It's the perfect vehicle for getting around during the zombie apocalypse. I mean, provided you can't score a tank. Or a hot air balloon. Or a boat. If you're in the woods hunting zombies though, it's perfect. If you're ... / Continue →

    Get down from there, bike -- you're not a plane! WARNING: A VERY solid "OH F*** OFF!" from the cyclist right before he gets hit. This is a video of a London cyclist who gets hit by a car, catches air, then slides down the hood of the car and lands on his feet. If I were t... / Continue →

    This is a video of Italian police officers performing a synchronized motorcycle routine in Rome in the 1950's. They do a great job. Way better than the guy who was trying to split lanes when I was waiting at a stop light the other day. It's cool bro, I didn't even like that ... / Continue →

    This is a video from the 2013 Texas Heat Wave custom car show of two lowriders doing battle. They're not REAL cars though -- they're just shells of cars that have had their engines and other heavy parts removed so they can achieve MAXIMUM BOUNCE. Just check out the red, white... / Continue →

    Note: Dude drops a solid f-bomb at 0:20. I recommend yelling it with him like the world's shittiest sing-a-long. This is a brief video of a 2006 Chevy Equinox that can create and blow snow out of the A/C vents. Yaaaay, let's go skiing! "You mean like, slang for doing coke... / Continue →
