  1. Things We Saw Today: Chris Pratt’s Totally Sweet Jurassic World Raptor Bros

    No Indomitus Rex here. I checked. I think... maybe?

    It really threw a lot of people for a loop when the first Jurassic World trailer showed Chris Pratt as Owen Grady riding his motorcycle with a bunch of raptors. When you think about it, and when you check out this rad new poster that the studio released today, it all just seems... right.

  2. Up Is Down, Black Is White: Google Starts Work on Car Service While Uber Has Plans For Self-Driving Cars

  3. For $85 on Airbnb, You Can Be the Junk in Elon Musk’s Trunk

    OK, on a technicality, but still.

    A guy from Phoenix, Arizona noticed his Tesla Model S had enough back to fit an air mattress back there, and after using it as his own portable, environmentally friendly hotel several times, he's opening up the opportunity to everyone on Airbnb. $85 might seem like a steep asking price to sleep in a trunk, but the Model S probably cost him more than some people's homes you could stay in.

  4. Conan Highlights the Kitten-Trampling Dangers of Google Driverless Cars

    Did you mean "electrocute us?"

    We all saw that impressive video from Google last week that highlighted the safety and comfort of their self-driving cars. If they can carry a bunch of old people and children without killing any of them in a fiery crash, that's a win, right? Wrong -- according to Conan O'Brien, Google only showed you what they wanted you to see in that first cut.

  5. Will You Watch a 2.5 Minute Car Commercial to Hear Tom Hiddleston Recite Shakespeare?

    i'll just leave this here

    That is the question that Jaguar is asking with its latest installment in its dubiously connected but totally Tumblr ready ad campaign that pairs Great Britain with great villains. Let us know in the comments if their gamble paid off. Previously in Tom Hiddleston

  6. Teach Your Kids About Ghostbusters With This Custom Made Ecto-1 Cozy Coupe

    But wait until they're older to tell them about the keymasters and the gatekeepers—er, birds and bees.

    We're all still in mourning of the passing of fallen Ghostbuster Harold Ramis, but maybe we can channel that grief into something productive and worthwhile. You know, like modifying a Little Tykes Cozy Coupe car to look like the car Egon Spengler drove around in while chasing down the supernatural forces that threaten our city.

  7. Attention Very Rich People, You Can Now Spend Your $$$ On Swarovski Crystal Headlights

    Sorry, children of developing countries, I've got useless ornamental crystals to buy!

    If you are really rich (like bought all of the Hammacher Schlemmer catalogue, substitute toilet paper with shredded legal documents, Beyonce and Jay-Z rich) then lucky you! The headlights on the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe are made from Swarovski crystals. Because owning a Mercedes Benz isn't a sufficient enough status symbol alone.

  8. Tina Fey Wants To Be In Charge of Issuing Twitter Licenses.

    #onlyforyouLiz

    With one exception (the Batmobile) I don't like cars, so I never considered watching Jerry Seinfeld's web series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee before. But Tina Fey was on this week, and after watching her and Jerry go get coffee and something called a cereal smoothie, I think I'm hooked.

  9. This Wonder Woman Car Isn’t Invisible, What the Hell?!

    Faster than a speeding bullet!

    ...but it's cool and it's for a good cause, so I'll let that little detail slide. This is the Wonder Woman Kia Sportage, made to support DC Entertainment's We Can Be Heroes charity campaign. The car made its debut back in March, which is like ten thousand years in Internet time, we know, we know. But this is the first time we're seeing it, so... nyah. You can see detail shots at Motor Trend. (Thanks, tipster Mike!) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  10. You Can Buy A S.H.I.E.L.D. Vehicle From The Avengers On Ebay

    Excelsior!

    How would you like to wake up Christmas day to find this pretty thing wrapped in a giant red bow in your driveway? The dream could become a reality as the Scottsdale Motor Company is selling it on Ebay. They write, "This 2011 Acura MDX is a true collector car! This beast is from the movie The Avengers! This S.H.I.E.L.D MDX was custom built especially for this movie. There were only 10 made! Not only is this SUV loaded with factory options but it also comes equipped with the S.H.I.E.L.D build options." I'll be honest, if I was in the market for a new car, I'd seriously consider this. Because seriously, it's a relatively new car, filled with good stuff, and painted to make you look like a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent. You could roll up anywhere and not get a ticket. Ok, that's probably not true, but you will look like a boss. The "buy it now" price is $42,900 and bids are up to $22,100 with their reserve not yet met.

  11. Pew Pew! BMW Puts Lasers in Headlights

    We're one step closer to a working Mach 5!

    Unless you're a Bond villain or a member of Cobra, your car probably doesn't shoot lasers, but BMW wants to change that. Their new laser headlights promise to be brighter than any other headlight on the market. That has obvious safety benefits, but you'll also get to brag that your car has frickin' laserbeams attached to its frickin' headlights.

  12. New Virtual Windshield Lets You See Through Vehicles

    Q would so love this for the next Bond car.

    We've all been there: stuck on the highway, trapped by a giant 18-wheeler, not sure if you should attempt to pass or just stay safe, in truck hell, for what seems like all of eternity. Lucky for us, researchers at the University of Porto feel our pain, and invented a See-Through System for car windshields. Zip past that annoying trucker with ease!

  13. Pixar Businesses Get Beautiful Advertisements

    To infinity and beyond!

    Over the course of their history, Pixar has created some incredibly memorable worlds-- and with those worlds, the fictional establishments that inhabit them. Any kid who's seen Toy Story could identify Pizza Planet, or Al's Toy Barn. Artist Mario Graciotti paid homage to these places with this series of posters based on all of the best Pixar businesses. Remember these? Check out the gallery to see!

  14. Man Building Aston Martin via 3D Printer, Rest of Us Feeling Inadequate

    Coming up: Specifically watered-down martini, seductive femme fatale, or exploding pen?

    There are more or less two kinds of people in the world: People whose first impulse upon buying a 3D printer is to build James Bond's car, and everyone else. New Zealand resident and programmer Ivan Sentch? Yeah, he's the first kind.

  15. Things We Saw Today: When Piloting A Jaeger, It’s Important To Have Priorities

    Things We Saw Today

    Artist Kelly Turnbull makes a fair point in her newest comic. Pacific Rim's Mako Mori finally got to pilot a Jaeger, she wasn't about to let Raleigh Becket have all the fun. (via Manly Guys Doing Manly Things)

  16. Garmin Reveals Windshield Navigation Heads-Up Display

    It's not flying cars, but it will do. For now.

    GPS navigation device and app maker Garmin has announced its first portable heads-up display for vehicle windshields. The heads-up display, known by the incredibly original name HUD, connects to smartphones running Garmin navigation apps and projects information on a transparent film on the windshield, enabling you to follow directions without holding your phone in front of you at all times.

  17. Motorsports Team Builds the Worst Car in Cartoon History: The Homer

    This monstrosity costs...well, you can't actually buy it. This reporter would totally pay $82,000 for it, though.

    File under BUY ME THIS NOW: The team at Porcubimmer Motors has lovingly crafted a mostly accurate recreation of The Homer -- a car designed by Homer Simpson that single-handedly brought the empire of his half-brother, the Danny Devito-voiced Herb, crashing down around him. The bright green monstrosity boasted an $82,000 price tag, which, if you ask us, is actually rather low for a car billed as being "powerful like a gorilla, but soft and yielding like a Nerf ball."

  18. Speed Sisters Shows Us The Middle East’s First Female Car Racing Team

    Firsts

      The documentary Speed Sisters from SocDoc Studios gives us a look at the lives of Noor, Mona, Maysoon, Betty, and Marah, the five women who make up the Middle East's first female car racing team.  Watch as they cooly drift and race through obstacles on the road, discuss societal expectations and racing, and navigate their lives. I'm looking forward to this documentary. It focuses on five amazing women pursuing their passion and living their lives in an area that we usually see through conflict, and all five women look like truly hardcore, awesome ladies.

  19. You’re Doing It Wrong: Man Turns Plane Into Street-Legal Car Instead of Building Flying Car

    A police officer built a plane that's really a car, but what he should have done is built a car that's really a plane.

    What do you do when you have an abandoned airplane and a van? If you're officer Jeff Bloch you get some buddies together and weld them together into the a plane that's also a car and call it The Spirit of LeMons. I'm not saying that this street-legal plane/car isn't cool to look at it, but a car that flies is cooler than a plane that drives. That should be your next project, officer Bloch.

  20. Driver Brags About Hitting Cyclist on Twitter, Finds Out the Police Know About the Internet

    If you do hit someone with your car, don't drive away. And if you do drive away, don't tweet about hitting someone with your car and then driving away.

    Emma Way, billed as a human being but likely some sort of malevolent hate monster with a blonde wig, had a Twitter account once. Presumably, in her efforts to pass as a human, she tweeted about things she ate and what her friends were up to and many trivial things. A couple of days ago, though, Way tweeted about knocking a bicyclist down with her car and then driving off, because hilarious, right? Sorry, that joke really only lands if you're a sadistic nightmare demon. Police in the English city of Norwich, though, didn't share Way's dark sense of humor, though, and the young woman is now facing legal trouble, which is what happens when you hit someone with a car.
