LEGO Technic Bugatti Veyron Can Actually Drive, has Real Working Transmission

3rd Person Driving in Real Life: a Panoramic View of Failure

3rd Person Driving in Real Life: a Panoramic View of Failure
A lot of gamers – myself included – prefer to use the third-person point of view when driving vehicles in video games. I just find it easier to steer if I can see how far my vehicle is from a turn; in first-person I always end up steering too late.

Snaefell Hybrid Car-Motorcycle: Why? Why Not?

Snaefell Hybrid Car-Motorcycle: Why? Why Not?
What’s red, shiny, goes fast, and looks like a vehicular accident? The Pontiac Aztek, that’s what. I’d rather have the Snaefell, François Knorreck’s lovingly handcrafted car-motorcycle hybrid. It’s easier to think of it as a motorcycle with a car-like sidecar, because I don’t think that you can drive – or steer – with the car half.

Aero Spider Laser Cars Drive on Walls, Follow Laser Beams, Confuse Cats
Takara Tomy’s latest remote-control car is definitely unique. Not only does the Aero Spider Laser drive on walls or ceilings, it goes where you tell it to using a light gun.
