    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 →

    Because Florida, this is a video of a boy getting a baby tooth pulled with the help of a Chevrolet Camaro. I did something similar with one of my son's teeth, except instead of a Camaro it was a monster truck. It was also the wrong tooth. Now I have to save up to get him a f... / 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 →

    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 →

    This is the Master Chief motorcycle helmet coming soon from NECA (National Entertainment Collectibles Association). It ships this June for an undisclosed amount of money (I suspect around a shit-ton) and meets or exceeds all Department of Transportation safety standards, which... / 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 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 →

    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 the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Wagon toy that pro modder Platinumfungi fitted with a functional Nintendo system. The controllers were painted by Custom NES Guy. They both did amazing jobs. So good, in fact, that I'm willing to offer my firstborn son for the sy... / Continue →

    Hot Wheels unveiled this full-size Darth Vader mask inspired car at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con. The car was built to promote the teensy $40 version they'll be releasing this fall. Damn, $40 for a Hot Wheels car? TIMES HAVE CHANGED. And so have I. Just kidding, I'm ... / 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 →

    Remember the Aerofex hoverbike from back in 2012? Well the company has been hard at work fine-tuning the design and says models could be available for sale to the public as early as 2017. You can even already put down a $5,000 deposit towards one of the $85,000 deathtraps. A... / Continue →

    This is the Turbospoke exhaust system for bicycles from Vat19 ($24). It consists of a durable plastic card that gets hit by your wheel's spokes (like kids used to do with baseball cards), the sound of which is amplified through the plastic exhaust pipe. The system comes with ... / Continue →

    This is a video shot above Meskel Square in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It's a massive free-for-all traffic intersection. From what I gathered, you just drive until you almost hit somebody, wait for them to move, then speed off again. The pedestrians though -- they're the real wa... / Continue →

    Note: Volume change halfway through the video, keep it low. This is a video from I'm not sure where (it doesn't look like my block though) of a guy driving a scooter who hasn't noticed his girlfriend has fallen off the back but is still holding on. That is some pretty irrespo... / Continue →

    This is the $185,000 Onyx Sofa from Peugeot. It measures 3-meters (~10-feet) long, 800-pounds, and is made from a chunk of volcanic rock and carbon fiber. It does not look like the sort of sofa I'd want to throw myself down on. Or make love on. Make love TO? Maybe. Regar... / Continue →

    This is 'If They Could Transform', a series of digital paintings by artist Darren Rawlings imagining famous pop culture vehicles as Transformers. Which one is your favorite? I liked them all equally. Except for the Ninja Turtle's Party Wagon, ECTO-1, KITT from Knight Rider, ... / Continue →

    This is the Little Tikes Coze Couple that was transformed into a mini Ghostbusters Ecto-1 by Redditor tabres for his nephew (previously: this Ecto-1 pushcart). Lucky kid. When I was growing up my uncle didn't build me anything, he would just squeeze my leg right above the kne... / Continue →
