Another mash up that I am not sure makes a bunch of sense.  This time it is a projector and a Smart Car (Forstars).  While this idea is still just in concept phase, the idea is that you can create your own drive-in theater experience in front of any flat wall.  The video projector is integrated into the front hood and the audio plays through...

At one time I wanted to buy a SMART car, but considering all I would have to give up to drive this thing, it better get significantly better MPG's than a Prius, and it doesn't.  In fact the SMART car only gets 33MPG city and 41MPG highway.  That sucks considering, I will fear for my life, I won't have a dating life,...

  One of my least favorite cars in the world, the Smart Car is the center of attention as 19 Pakistani girls stuffed themselves inside to break a world record.  The last world record was set when 18 Australian girls fit in to the Smart Car with all windows and doors closed for ten seconds. You can watch news footage of the 19 girls fitting in to the tiny...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MA7oADAI9lo Again… more crafty folks with more money and time than I can comprehend.  These folks took a Smart Car and made it into a mini monster truck.  After I saw this I ended up finding a bunch of other too much time/money modifications to other types of cars.  See them after the break.  ...

I am obsessed with dashboard car cameras. I have a camera in every car I own and love the peace of mind they provide should something go awry. Dashcams have provided me with some entertaining videos and have also helped to keep a dishonest person honest during a fender bender. After trying several brands of dashcams I have been loyal to BlackVue for the last 5+ years. The BlackVue cameras are made in Korea, they are high quality, and have rarely failed me. Most dashboard...

Flexible EO Smart Connecting Car 2. Yep, that is the name. Horrible right? More about that later. Well, outside of the awful name, this little car has some pretty cool features. For example, the Flexible EO Smart Connecting Car 2 can change shape and can turn its independently-powered wheels up to 90-degrees. This mean the car can turn on a dime and drive sideways for some pretty cool parking tricks. More about the name. Apparently the “connecting” portion has do with the fact these cars can virtually connected together....

Sure our government runs huge deficits and has an unsustainable debt load.  But we always find money for weapons.  One of the scary ones coming out of DARPA is the exact thing that was portrayed in Angelina Jolie's movie, Wanted.  Yep, bullets that can turn in mid-air. DARPA's Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO) program recently...

This clever idea, unfortunately still at the Kickstarter phase, is pretty cool.  It is basically a credit card shaped backup battery for charging your USB or Apple lightning port gadgets.  It should fit in wallets and purses with ease and will provide approximately 5 hours of additional talk time.  Priced at

Earlier this year at CES, Eclipse showed us the DREC20000, an in-car video recorder that saves its last 20 seconds of footage if it senses a car accident. Unfortunately, the Eclipse device is only available in Japan. But if you want that kind of device in...
