Little kid falls asleep in his toy car and ends up driving in circles

Yep, we totally understand you kid. Sometimes when the sun is beating down too hard and the day of fun has gone on a little too long and you're oddly comfortable in an uncomfortable position, you just fade away without a care in the world. It is a hammock's rest. It is ice melting in an umbrella drink. It is this kid… » 5/31/14 3:39pm 5/31/14 3:39pm

This Modular Toy Car Has Steering and Suspension Like the Real Thing

Toy cars are a compromise: the simple ones "drive" like a roller skate, and the really serious ones are too intricate (and expensive) to just hand over to a mere child. Modarri Cars wants to change that with fun, customizable, modular toy cars with spring suspension and steering just like the real thing. » 2/19/14 10:16pm 2/19/14 10:16pm

Every R/C Vette Really Needs A Rocket Motor

I'm pretty sure rocket motors and fireworks and other pyrotechnics have been duct-taped to R/C cars since kids have had access to both items. And I'm sure a good, if possibly finger-losing time was had by all.

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… » 3/13/12 2:00pm 3/13/12 2:00pm

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

The small details of this music video featuring a recreation of the 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans with slot cars are staggering. There's Porsche's "psychedelic" 917LH of Martini Racing. 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… » 11/29/11 12:00pm 11/29/11 12:00pm
