Google engineer Max Braun created a smart mirror unlike many other that you've seen, as it's designed to be a giant smartphone, or so we'd like to think. Starting with a two-way mirror, a display panel and main board were added. After countless hours of work, Max unveils his new creation, a smart mirror that tells time, weather, and even the latest news headlines. This Android-powered creation can also be programmed to display other things. Continue reading to see the brains of this operation.
A pulse jet engine is basically a type of jet engine in which combustion occurs in pulses. It can be made with few, or no moving parts, and is capable of running statically (i.e. it does not need to have air forced into its inlet typically by forward motion). Colin Furze decided to add a pulse jet engine system onto his motorized drift trike, and insane speeds ensued. Continue reading to see a video on how Colin built his drift trike.
Swiss rocket man Francois Gissy wasn't satisfied with a supercar, so he built a rocket bike that can achieve 207 mph in a mere 4.8 seconds. This isn't a fancy model either, as it's completely stripped of everything that causes drag. There aren't any sophisticated aerodynamic bits, just a rocket, saddle, and an extreme brake system to ensure that Gissy is able to safely stop after breaking the world speed record.

Not everyone can afford to buy a real tank, so this Russian decided to build his own, using an old Lada Samara chassis. While the body remained largely untouched, giant tracks, powered by the front wheels, were added to turn the two sets of wheels that sit aft of the driven ones. Inside, the steering wheel has been replaced with a set of controls we can only assume are sourced from retired war machines.

When the roads get icy or filled with snow, tire chains are usually required to safely traverse the terrain, that is unless...you're driving the Nissan Rogue Warrior. It's fitted with the Dominator track system, which is comprised of four triangular tank tracks that each measure 30 inches in height, 48 inches in length, and 15 inches wide. Aside from the track system, it uses Nissan's standard Xtronic transmission and all-wheel drivetrain. Continue reading for two more videos and information.
Have a broken Nintendo DS just collecting dust? Then it may be time to transform it into a Game Boy Macro. It's essentially a DS modded to run without a top screen, and when paired with a nice looking outer shell, it becomes a whole new console, similar to the Game Boy Advance. For those wondering why there's a black border, the modded console creates this to maintain the same aspect ratio/resolution of a Game Boy Advance. Click here for more pictures.

Chopping the tops off vehicles goes back to the early days of the hot rod scene, and is essentially an attempt to reduce the front profile while increasing its speed potential. To start the process, the vehicle's pillars and windows are cut down, lowering the overall roof line. Some dry lake racers chop the tops in extreme fashion, so the windows are mere inches tall, making them "mail slot" windows. In the example above, we have a chopped Volkwsagen Beetle, complete with a wide fender kit. Click here to view the first image in this week's things that look like other things gallery.

Auto enthusiast Dean Loucks purchased an IndyCar chassis a few years back - Eddie Cheever's backup car from the 2000 season, and after 1,000 hours spent on the operating table at his firm, The Art of Design, it became a street-legal beast. It now features a custom front splitter, key-start ignition, and is powered by a small block Chevrolet engine. The V8 is good for a top speed of 120 mph, and while it may not sound too impressive, you have to remember that this vehicle only weighs 1,200-pounds.
