Remember the achievement unlocked: left the house shirt? Someone has found a cheat for that achievement: he or she stuffed 2 Xbox 360s, 2 projectors and 2 flat screen monitors inside a Suzuki. One of the two 360s appears to be embedded into the car’s dash.Why?

This amazing new advertisement for MINI uses augmented reality (AR) technology to create a truly interactive media piece out of a 2-dimensional magazine ad.

While I’d rather have a lifesize Optimus Prime, I might just have to settle for this R/C robot that can transform itself into a car, truck or tank. The RCRC Transforming Robot from AOK can go from ‘bot to vehicle with a quick flick of two joysticks on the included remote control.

Race Car USB Memory Card Reader has Flat Tires
Most of the USB memory card readers I come across are rather pedestrian. Conversely, this one is rather automotive. ElectroJoe’s Motor Maniac is a 16-in-1 memory card reader that looks like a (slightly deformed) little red race car.

Dream Car 123: Electric Car Gets Pyramid Power
While this pyramid-shaped car might look pretty goofy, it’s actually an energy-efficient electric vehicle which laughs in the face of today’s gas guzzlers. And with gasoline costing upwards of $4 bucks a gallon these days, anything that runs on alternative energy seems like a welcome change.

Hack: Control an R/C Car With Your iPhone
A couple of young Czech whippersnappers have figured out how to use the iPhone’s accelerometer to control remote controlled cars. They say, “Controlling is very easy with the iPhone 3G.
