With a turbocharged engine and a new set of cat track tires, the Subaru-based TRAX STI provides pure rally power in alpine conditions. Based on a race ready Subaru WRX STI rally car, ... Read More »

Pimp My Pac: Pac-Man Pimps Out Yet Another Ride

There’s something about Pac-Man that draws car owners to paste him all over their vehicles. This car might not have the gullwing doors have the last Pac car we posted about, but what it does have is an additional dose of Packy flair. Everything down to the rims is adorned with Pac-love, and I’m simply loving the custom leather upholstery. ... Read More »

NYC Subways Install LCD Screens to Track Train Locations

While I’m not a New Yorker, I live in close enough proximity to the city that this is pretty exciting. New York City has installed an LCD screen at the Bedford Ave L station subway stop, testing a system that could one day allow patrons to see exactly where their train is. Updating every 15 seconds, the screen accompanies boards ... Read More »

I’m not driving with you anymore. No way. I’ve had enough bruises to last me a lifetime, thank you very much. Nope, I’d like you to meet AIDA, short for Affective Intelligent Driving Assistant.

Shingled Skateboard Reminds You of Home

Ahh, it’s nice to be reminded of home. Unfortunately this skateboard reminds me of my roof, rather than my cozy couch. How awesome would it be to build a roof using only skateboard? Designer Devin Barette created several artsy skateboards, including the Shingled Skateboard, for an art show and auction to raise money for charity. Link [via] Read More »

Pac-Man Car with Gullwing Doors

I don’t recall how many Pac-Man-themed cars I might have seen in my life, but this is no doubt the coolest, even if it’s only for the totally rad gullwing doors. Flickr user CarlaDallas took a shot of the awesome vehicle and uploaded it for your viewing pleasure. The details are scant so the owner is nowhere to be found, ... Read More »
