Sometimes, we need to take a look back (possibly to the beginning of the internet), to see how creative computer modders were back in the day. Not only did they want the fastest desktop computer around, but having a unique case was just as important, and these five ultra creative (yet strange) examples are perfect examples.

Telekinesis is best known as a psychic ability allowing a person to influence a physical system without physical interaction.

He is able to perceive the thoughts of others or project his own thoughts within a radius of approximately 250 miles (400 km). Continue reading for the video demonstration.

Mechanic and Kathy's Collision owner Rick Sullivan stumbled upon his latest project in the most unexpected way. He received a call last winter to transport an overturned Ford Ranger to his shop, but when he saw the vehicle with its roof and four wheels sticking up in the air, a big idea came to him. Simply put, it's a 1991 Ford Ranger pickup truck with an upside down 1995 F-150 placed over the top, complete with spinning tires. After spending 6-months and $6,000, the vehicle you see above became a reality. It recently won the WTF award and the Innovation Award at the Car Craft Street Machine Nationals in Du Quoin, Illinois.
