Nissan Juke NISMO RS

This one-of-a-kind Nissan Juke NISMO RS was spotted in Lapland, Sweden sporting tank treads, perfect for the snowy winter landscape there. The company says that it's capable of hitting 100 km/h (62 mph), and thanks to its variable transmission, standard gearing shouldn't be an issue since having such a transmission makes it more similar to standard cars rather than snowmobiles.

Pagani Zonda Replica

Auto enthusiast Nick Truman has always wanted a Pagani Zonda, but couldn't quite afford the real thing, so he decided to settle for the next best thing: a custom-built replica. No kits were used during the build process, just a Ford Granada chassis he purchased for £100, twin-turbocharged Audi V8 engine, and then eBay-sourced wheels, tires, gearboxes, windscreens, and other miscellaneous parts.

Volkswagen Stretch Bus

Playbox PS4 Xbox One Laptop

Project credit: Eddie Zarick

We've featured Eddie Zarick's work before, but now he's outdone himself with the Playbox, the world's first PlayStation 4 and Xbox One hybrid laptop. Best of all, it includes a large 22-inch display so even multiplayer games should be enjoyable. Zarick only encountered one issue, detailed here: "The only issue I had with this unit was the PS4 capacitive Power button will not work consistently. I have determined it has something to do with interference with the XBOX ONE being so close. Luckily it turns on perfectly fine using the PS4 controller, and still will turn on with the button if you have patience." Continue reading for more pictures and information.

This replica can be snatched up for just $48,900 USD (€40,575). It's based on the Pontiac Fiero platform, and is powered by a Camaro-sourced LS1 V8 engine, mated to a Porsche 911 transmission.

Bullet Headphones

Inspire to Make's Igor used actual bullets to create the earphones you see above, and was kind enough to put together a step-by-step video showing how to make your own. Here's what you need: 2 bullet shells S&W .40 Cal, a pair of old headphones, a 10mm wooden dowel, 400 Grit / 800 Grit sandpaper, a finishing sponge, hacksaw, battery-powered drill, drill bit (diameter of the drill bit should match the diameter of the wire), soldering iron, and a vice or a clamp to fix the bullet casing for drilling.
