Racing Toy Cars on a Treadmill Looks Like More Fun Than NASCAR

Racing Toy Cars on a Treadmill Looks Like More Fun Than NASCAR
Check out these toy cars racing their hearts out. This race looks pretty intense, but these cars aren’t even technically racing. They are on a treadmill, and the belt is moving, not the cars. Still, if you look at the footage in Diego Jesus Asim’s treadmill racing videos for a little while it almost looks like a real race with the ground moving by fast underneath them.

Extreme Barbie Jeep Racing: Fisher-Price Goes Off-Road

Extreme Barbie Jeep Racing: Fisher-Price Goes Off-Road
Wow. This is a real sport. Extreme Barbie Jeep Racing is basically off-roading, but without the huge heavily modified and super horsepower 4x4s. Instead you use cheap, fast, toy plastic cars that grown men barely fit in, and remove the speed limiters.

Course of the Force: A Relay Race with Lightsabers!

Course of the Force: A Relay Race with Lightsabers!
Let’s be honest, not much will get your average geek to run. I mean, the typical things such as free smartphones, hot chicks in skimpy Comic-Con costumes, and obviously nachos will do the trick. You might be inclined to take a run for charity but lack the motivation.

Turtle Shell Robot Races Bring Mario Kart One Step Closer to Reality
When driving down the road, you never stop to think that a Koopa shell could slam into you and knock you off course, but it might be time to start worrying about this possibility. Why? Because Turtle Shell robots are now having real life races.

OutRun: Augmented Reality Driving Video Game Actually Drives

OutRun: Augmented Reality Driving Video Game Actually Drives
It’s been a while since I went down over to the local arcade, but I went crazy with the racing games the last time I was there. I’m a really bad driver, so crashing and veering off the road without any real consequences was a welcome change for me.

Robovie-PC Wins First Robot Marathon (At a Very Slow Pace)
Ah, marathons. It seems that robots are now taking up the task of running them for us. The winner of the first robot marathon is a small robot called Robovie-PC.

Totally Unscientific Test Determines Fastest Toy Robot in the UK
British gadget show “The Gadget Show” – see how sensible and proper they are – wanted to find out which toy robot is the fastest among the ones available in the United Kingdom. Common sense dictates that a race would be a good way to get their answer.

Racer: Wipeout Goes Analog

Racer: Wipeout Goes Analog
While I always thought WipEout was about dizzying 3D computer-generated graphics, the guys working on this project have taken a decidedly low-tech approach to the game. Devised by Malte Jehmlich and Matthes Mikysec of sputnic.tv, RACER is an analog variant of video game racers, using an old arcade cabinet, an R/C car, a wireless camera and a racetrack created entirely out of cardboard.

Is This Hp Webcam Racist?
Meet Desi. He’s in front of an HP MediaSmart computer, which has a fancy face tracking software that allows its webcam to follow your face within the confines of the frame. Desi may look like a happy guy, but he’s definitely not.

Sparkfun’S Autonomous Vehicle Race: Autobots,Rollout! No, Not There! Get Back Here!

Sparkfun’S Autonomous Vehicle Race: Autobots,Rollout! No, Not There! Get Back Here!
Modder-friendly electronics company SparkFun Electronics recently held what they hope will be an annual event called the Autonomous Vehicle Competition, which is basically a race of proto-Autobots around one of SparkFun’s buildings. The contest was initially employees-only, but SparkFun realized it would be much more fun to have their customers join so that was what they did.

Formula One Race Car USB Memory: Vroom, Vroom

Formula One Race Car USB Memory: Vroom, Vroom
Unlike a real race car, you really don’t want to see this one hit the wall and blow up in a fiery crash. That’s because this one could be holding all of your precious digital files.

Burnout 5 Looking Oh So Sweet

Burnout 5 Looking Oh So Sweet
The folks over at Destructoid got their hands on some new screens from a recent issue of PSM magazine. From what I understand, these are from the PS3 version of the game. I especially dig the shot with the car jumping between the train cars.

The World’s Smallest Race Track

The World’s Smallest Race Track
Ever wonder what’s inside those “top secret”-looking aluminum briefcases you see in spy movies? Designed by famous German model maker Faller, this case is filled with a tiny little slot car track, complete with 1/87th scale racers and two remotes for controlling your cars.
