Watch A 3D Nanoprinter Create The Smallest Car In the Universe

I'm a big fan of small cars, and, like many small-car aficionados, I'm frankly tired of not having a car that can be mostly obscured by a grain of sand. Thankfully, that problem has been solved by researchers at the Vienna Institute of Technology, who have used a new 3D printing method to produce a racecar about 285 µm… » 3/13/12 2:00pm 3/13/12 2:00pm

This Steampunk Model Car Is Powered By A Beautiful 19th Century Air…

German medical and precision parts manufacturer Böhm just released two new model cars, both powered by an engine that's seriously old school — a Stirling air engine.

Watch the 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans recreated with slot cars

Is that a miniature Sam Posey starting that Ferrari 512S? Or is it Nino Vaccarella? (Ok, so the numbers don't match.) Still, it's an amazing … » 11/29/11 12:00pm 11/29/11 12:00pm
