Watch this awesome Lego monster truck dominate stacks of books

Sariel makes the coolest custom Lego Technic models and this one is no different than the dozens that came before it. This all custom 4x4 crawler is jacked up with some mid-2000s Technic shocks that he designed to be adjustable and custom RC off road tires.

The BlueDrone R/C Racer Is Probably the Closest You'll Ever Get to…

The 2012 Nissan GT-R is a $90,000, 530Hp street rocket. The BlueDrone R/C car... not so much. But at least it'll hurt less when you wrap it around a tree. » 7/19/11 3:20pm 7/19/11 3:20pm

IR Car Chases Beams of Light Like an Angry Cat

Most R/C cars are controlled by radio frequencies and a miniature steering wheel, but this car follows a dot of infrared light wherever you want it to go (similar to a cat chasing a laser). The only catches are that the car doesn't look to read throttle commands and it can only recognize light up to 5 feet away, so… » 9/24/08 4:40pm 9/24/08 4:40pm
