If you thought the Mini Cooper was small enough already, get a load of these Mini Mini Cooper flash memory devices.
The Mini drives are the latest wacky USB devices to hit the streets. Each one is a 1:48 scale replica of an actual Mini.
When I think of airbags, I picture them inside the car. But what if we equipped cars with outer airbags to protect pedestrians?
That’s exactly what Toyoda Gosei (an offshoot of Toyota) has done with these prototypes: they’ve equipped cars with camera and radar sensors to detect pedestrians and (presumably) activate the outer airbags to protect anyone within range of the car.
This cool new remote-controlled car puts you right in the heart of the action, thanks to a tiny wireless camera and a pair of POV goggles.
The VTS (Vision Tracking System) R/C car uses a VGA resolution digital camera to transmit a real-time image from the driver’s perspective to a head-mounted display device.
Do we really need any more distractions we need while we drive down the road? This over-the-top replacement sun visor for your vehicle manages to cram in just about everything but the kitchen sink.
Not only can the visor play DVDs, audio and video files, it can play retro video games on its 7-inch LCD 16×9 widescreen display.
Can’t afford to spend your next couple of paychecks on that Italian sports car you’ve been dreaming about? Why not live vicariously through these miniature motorized Ferarris that just hit the streets? These tiny 1/58th scale Ferraris measure just about 3-inches long and fit in the palm of your hand.
These officially-licensed RealDrive Nano mini racers include Testarossa, F430, 512BB and Enzo models.
This isn’t the first time I’ve seen a computer designed to fit inside your car, but it’s definitely the first one I’ve seen which can fit entirely in the space of your old car stereo.
The Navisurfer II occupies a single DIN slot in your car’s dashboard, and manages to cram in an entire PC with a flip-out touchscreen 7-inch color display.
Remember the Robosaurus? Let me refresh your memory. The gigantic robotic dinosaur looks like a metal, fire-breathing Tyrannosaurus Rex, and might be just about as fierce. Capable of picking up cars, then crushing them with its razor-sharp jaws, I certainly wouldn’t want to run into one in a back alley.
So it’s with much glee that I report that the Robosaurus is up for auction.
This automotive-inspired casemod embeds a complete high-end PC built inside an alloy wheel from an SUV.
The liquid cooled SLI-Machine Wheel PC is loaded into an 18-inch wheel from a Porsche Cayenne, then wrapped up in a Bridgestone Dueler H/P radial tire to round things out.
An intense green neon backlighting system gives the computer a bright glow as soon as the lights go out.
The system was sponsored by nVidia to show off their SLI video performance platform.
If you’ve got a really cruel streak, here’s a new prank for your arsenal of practical jokes. This may look like an ordinary car keychain remote, but it won’t actually open any vehicle. Instead, it lets out a tiny jolt of electricity when your unsuspecting victim presses the wrong button.
The thing that makes me a bit nervous about this gag is that the company who makes them says there’s a laser pointer built into it, but it’s broken out of the box.
Let me start by saying this — I need one of these. A new technology is in the works that can stop moving vehicles cars dead from a distance.
Pasadena’s Eureka Aerospace has developed high-power microwave-based system that can be fired at a specific car and kill its electrical system in an instant.
What fun are toy cars if you can’t smash them together and cause little car crashes? These new r/c cars encourage reckless driving by sending their occupants into the sky when they hit. No airbags here, just flying little men, spiraling through the air to an untimely demise.
Buttons on the sides of each car automatically trigger ejector seats that make its passengers and driver go airborne on contact.
The police department in Osaka, Japan is about to get a whole lot wackier. Apparently, they’ve ordered these goofy rabbit-shaped lights for about 800 of their cars.
The bunny strobe lights are designed for use on vehicles patrolling the neighborhoods around schools, presumably so the kids can point and laugh at the cops.
This new display technology from Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology Co., Ltd. has created a full-color LCD that’s truly unique. It’s round.
The panels are designed for use in vehicular instrument panels. The initial module measures in at about 75mm (2.95″)
Who needs an LCD headrest screen and an Xbox 360 for each passenger in their car anyway? Here’s the proper way to outfit your ride with gaming tech.
This 1979 Buick Riviera has all the style and class you’d expect from a pimped out vehicle.
The latest in Bizarre Creations’ critically-acclaimed racing series is officially “in the can”. Project Gotham Racing 4 has gone gold, and is off to production for us to get our grubby little hands on in the very near future.
In addition to announcing this major milestone, Bizarre also released the (massive) final list of vehicles in the game, and it doesn’t disappoint.
