    This is a video of a goldfish in a little aquarium on wheels who can steer the thing by swimming in different directions (which is captured by a webcam). It's basically exactly like Finding Nemo, provided you've never seen the movie and thought it was about a fish who owned a ... / Continue →

    British man John Bitmead spent over 1,000 hours and £4,000 (~$6,500) building a street-legal version of a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe car. Why? I'm not sure, apparently he doesn't share the same dream as you and I. "Which is?" A Flintstones-mobile! Allegedly the gas-powered ca... / Continue →

    Well folks, your dreams of local news broadcasts filled with reports of flying car crashes may soon be reality, with Terrafugia hoping to be selling its Transition model of hybrid car-plane (starting around $280,000) as early as 2015. The company has also announced a concept f... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Knight Rider KITT replica that Chris Palmer built out of a 1991 Pontiac Trans Am (the original KITT was an '82). It looks pretty impressive. Now I'm usually a pretty traditional dater, but if Chris picked me up in this thing I'd probably make an excepti... / Continue →

    Jesus, Optimus, WTF did you eat?! Note: Turn the volume down on your speakers, this thing sounds like a tornado. This is a video of a jet-powered rocket truck unleashing what can only be described as the gates of hell before blasting off to 210MPH. I felt the heat THROUGH MY... / Continue →

    Razor, best known for reinventing the scooter (or at least making a shit-ton of cash money selling the things), has just unveiled the $400 Crazy Cart, an electric go-kart that can drive and drift in any direction. It looks like it goes pretty fast too. The bad news: a full ba... / Continue →

    This is the 1984 Dodge Colt Turbo that was turned into a bumper car lookalike and put up for auction on eBay. I kind of want it. Only kind of though, I'm not in love with it like I would be a short school bus for sale. Everything works on this car. The body is custom one pie... / Continue →

    This is a short video of French bicyclist François Gissy setting a new world record by hitting 263km/h (~163mph) on a hydrogen peroxide powered rocket bike. That seems dangerous. I've probably hit 25mph on my bike before and I felt like my face was going to melt off. Then I ... / Continue →

    This is the Lamborghini Egoista, a 5.2-liter V10, 600-horsepower supercar that can hit 0-60 in under two seconds. It was designed as a one-of-a-kind to celebrate the carmaker's 50th birthday. For my 50th? I dunno, maybe somebody will come scatter flower petals at the site of... / Continue →

    This is the 33-year old Subaru that two friends decided to jazz up with a Jurassic Park paint job, making it infinitely cooler than it was and something I would be proud to ride around shotgun in. I'd never drive it myself though, but only because I lost my license and OBEY TH... / Continue →

    This is the Torq Roadster from electric vehicle company Epic EV. The all-electric trike can hit 0-60MPH in four seconds and handle turns at 1.3-G's. For reference, that's 0.3 more G's than a solo rap album. The Tumbler-esque design is state of the art. A carbon fiber body,... / Continue →

    Because they're all the rage right now, Ferrari is going to manufacturer a million-dollar, 963-horsepower gas/electric hybrid supercar called the *drumroll please* LaFerrari. *womp womp* Wow, and I was this close to putting my name on the waiting list. The car generates ele... / Continue →

    This is allegedly a real video recorded by some Ruskie's car cameras from when that meteor tried to decimate the world's vodka supply earlier this month. It's only ten seconds, so just watch it. I'm convinced dude was either already on his way to kill himself or just hadn't ha... / Continue →

    Because building your own scrap metal Batpod is like THE THING to do in Vietnam, here comes another one. No clue if this is the same guy as before, but I doubt it because this guy actually wears a helmet. The smarter Batpod builder we'll call him. This is a fully functiona... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Batpod inspired motorcycle some engineering genius managed to piece together in Vietnam. It's pretty damn impressive considering it looks like it was built entirely out of parts that had fallen off other cars. Granted it's not something I'd risk MY life... / Continue →
