I break my 700 post streak of Star Wars-less posts today. This hysterical new advert for the 2012 Passat is too good to pass up.

Metropolis II: What to do with 1,200 Hot Wheels

November 26, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Metropolis II is a kinetic art installation by Chris Burden featuring 1,200 Hot Wheels. It includes 1,200 custom-designed cars and 18 lanes; 13 toy trains and tracks; and, dotting the landscape, buildings made of wood block, tiles, Legos and Lincoln Logs. Burden estimates that every hour about 100,000 cars circulate the system. Soon to be on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, or as my friend Gregg will refer to it, “Mecca”.

Holy amazing, check out this Back to the Future Delorean hard drive from Flash Rods. The stainless steel hard drive took four years to engineer and comes complete with functional gull-wing doors, a Mr. Fusion reactor, and an embedded 500gb Seagate hard drive. (via iain claridge)
