    This is the 500,000+ piece LEGO car that was built by 20-year-old Romanian Raul Oaida. Obviously it's not 100% LEGO (chassis, axles, wheels), but it is fueled by compressed air powering 256 LEGO pistons and can allegedly reach speeds up to 20MPH. For reference, that's faster ... / Continue →

    This is the $45,000 conference table made from a retired 747's General Electrics engine. Only the nacelle of the engine though, so it's not like you could use it to build your own plane if you bought one. WHICH FOR $45,000 YOU SHOULD. Man, could you imagine investing your ha... / Continue →

    Sometimes life hands you lemons, and you can make lemonade. But other times life puts a pillowcase over your head and pummels you with cantaloupes. I hate cantaloupe. Or is it honeydew? My point is the bruises are healing and I'll be back to embarrassing myself later today ... / Continue →

    This is a 152,455-piece, 677-pound, cross-section, cross-legged, wonk-eyed, 1:2 scale LEGO model of a Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 airplane engine. That's the same engine that powers Boeing's 787 but NOT choo-choo trains. Choo-choo trains run on the imaginations of children. It's t... / Continue →

    Casey Putsch built a Batmobile powered by a turbine engine from a naval helicopter (allegedly the only tubine-powered Batmobile to date so I don't know what this is) because he's a firm believer IN GOING BIG OR NOT GOING AT ALL. Hey, I'm with you bro. *finishing off second 20... / Continue →

    Spark plugs are used to ignite the gas and oxygen mixture in your vehicle's engine and are NOT to be confused with butt plugs, which are used to reignite the passion in your bedroom. Me? I tried once but just shit the sheets. So romantic. Enter laser plugs: way less intimid... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like some sort of Pagan sun talisman, a shock-wave generator may prove to be the future of engines, pushing traditional internal-combustion joints to the wayside. Ooooooor being all bullshit. Oooooor having its patent rights bought up by engine ... / Continue →

    Yesterday we took a peep at CryTek's CryEngine 3 and today, the latest version of Unreal's gaming engine. As you'll see, it looks pretty good, even more so considering IT'S A HANDHELD RECORDING A PROJECTOR SCREEN. Just amazing. The bootleg I tried filming at the adult theate... / Continue →

    Chewbacca I trust, Boba not so much. He seems like the kind of mechanic that'd charge you for a new transmission when he didn't do anything but cut your brakes. Which, fun fact: pedestrians are a poor substitute. Aim for a tree. Not your average mechanics [zanypickle] Than... / Continue →
