Super Deluxe Mario R/C Cars Are the Best Yet

Braincar Splatters its Grey Matter All Over the Road
Yes, that is a giant brain in the back of the car you see here. The car is called Braincar (surprising right) and was designed by an artist names Olaf Mooij. The artist drives the car around during the day and the little black thing on top of the brain is a camera that records his travels.

Michael Jelinek’s Vehicle Concepts: Are Pod Racers the Future of Transportation?

Water-Cooled Seat Cushion Might Make You Think You Peed Yourself
If you’ve got a fancy high-end car, you might already have heated or even air-conditioned seats. But for those of us slumming it without such schmancy features in our rides, there’s now a way to keep our butts cool on even the hottest Summer days.

Chevy Volt Plugless Power Charger Needs No Wires

Chevy Volt Plugless Power Charger Needs No Wires
The Chevy Volt is a cool car if you are into the green vehicle movement. You can charge the batteries in the car up at night for full EV driving for short drives. The cool part is that you don’t have to worry about being stranded because the Volt has a gasoline motor that recharges the batteries when the driving range exceeds the charge.

BlueDrone: An Android Controlled R/C Car

BlueDrone: An Android Controlled R/C Car
If you’re a fan of toys like remote controlled cars and smartphones like I am, this BlueDrone toy will catch your attention. It’s like the rolling, wheeled version of the AR.Drone smartphone-controlled  flying toy.

Turbine-Powered Batmobile Hits the Streets

Turbine-Powered Batmobile Hits the Streets
I will admit that while I have seen all of the Batman flicks they have all been crazy cheesy until Christian Bale took over in the recent Christopher Nolan-helmed films. Bale and Nolan took Batman and made it much more real and gritty.

If you are a geek, be a geek dammit. Just look at this dude named Shawn. He has embraced his inner Star Wars geek and turned his Honda into his own H-Wing Carfighter – and its epic.

Nevada Passes Legislation Allowing Google’s Driverless Cars to Cruise State Highways

Nevada Passes Legislation Allowing Google’s Driverless Cars to Cruise State Highways
I think you can agree with me, people are generally stupid. Put stupid behind the wheel and you get an idiot driver that will text, eat, and read all while doing 80 MPH down the highway in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

It’s Not Too Hot for Spot in the Car, is It?

It’s Not Too Hot for Spot in the Car, is It?
I recently got a new puppy (I named her Remy Martin, but of course I’m not going to let her grow up to be an alcoholic, no sirrie!) and I just adore my little furball. I rarely leave her at home alone, given that she’s still 8 weeks-old and all, but sometimes, there’s just no one left at home to care for the little tyke.

The 75-Dollar X-Wing Soapbox Derby Car: The Force Is Strong in This One

The 75-Dollar X-Wing Soapbox Derby Car: The Force Is Strong in This One
When I saw this amazing X-Wing soapbox derby car, I was really surprised that it can be made for around 75 bucks. You’d expect something like this to cost at least $100. Then again, when we were younger, we didn’t have detailed instructions via Instructables to help us out.
