Oh, Look, Someone Actually Made A Custom Car In The Likeness Of A Dick

Dickhead is a vulgar slang defined by “a stupid, irritating, or ridiculous man.” Now, if Batman’s ride is a Batmobile, wouldn’t the aforementioned person’s ride called Dickmobile? And Dickmobile this is. I mean, seriously, we don’t even need to tell you this, do we? Not that the person who created it is a dickhead or anything. Just that it is too obvious what it is. The intention however is not as vulgar as it seems. As it turns out, this car was created way back in 1969 by one Steve Paige and it was meant to be an “art car”, but really what was its purpose is unclear to us. Perhaps if you know something about this rolling willy, you can point us to the right direction. Continue reading Oh, Look, Someone Actually Made A Custom Car In The Likeness Of A Dick

This Product That Adds Lateral Support To Car Seat May Well Be A Genius Invention

I am sure you are familiar with racing seat, or bucket seat. The body-hugging car seat designed to keep you in place as you and the car twists and turns through winding roads or race track. It seems like racing car seat is the solution to you from “body-swishing” when pulling corners in a car, but there is just a couple of problem: it is never comfortable for everyday driving and it mars the beautiful stock look of your car. Factory car seats, on the other hand, are usually the most comfy, but they lack the lateral support a racing seat have. Just when it seems like the only solution is to put up with uncomfortable seat, or putting up with the body-swishing, one dude by the name of Ted Heys came with a brilliant and exceedingly simple solution called The Bolster Boost.

While aesthetically fabulous, it is, however, secondary. What’s impressive here is what it can really do.

With Stark Mobility’s Electric Skateboard, You Are The Remote

Electric skateboard is a norm today, but 99.9 percent of them requires the use of a remote, or an app for control. Now, lets take a step back and think about it: do we really need that (the remote)?

Unholy Car Mashups: Abomination Or Awesomeness, You Decide
