    This is the WalkCar, a personal electric transportation device that looks like a laptop on wheels. It can support 265-pounds and travel up to 7.2 miles on a single charge at a breakneck speed of 6.2MPH. At speeds like that my mom would almost certainly make me wear a helmet. ... / Continue →

    This is the cordless drill powered walking machine built by Izzy Swan of Think Woodworks (previously: his all-in-one folding table and chairs) and inspired by the kinetic sculptures of Theo Jansen. I wish I was better at making things out of wood. I tried to build a birdhouse... / Continue →

    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 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 →

    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 →
