…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Pioneer MiniCamino?


If you’re trying to get people to pay attention to your car, nothing does it quite like chopping the back half off of a Mini and turning it into a MiniCamino.

This Pioneer show car features an MS Design widebody kit in two-tone chocolate and white, a custom convertible kit, Recaros, a surfboard rack, an iPod dock, and enough Pioneer electronics to blow your neighbor’s ears out.

Hummer HX iPhone

The iPod/iPhone is quickly becoming an automotive designers go-to gadget for futuristic tech integration.

First, there was the Land Rover LRX concept that started with the push of an iPhone button.

Now, the Hummer HX concept takes video from the front bumper mounted camera and records it directly to a dock mounted iPod.

What will they think of next?

…iPods can be art?

Exploded iPod

Billy Chasen has always been a fan of exploded diagrams, so he decided to make a real life version of one.

After choosing his iPod as the victim, Billy then encased it in resin and created what you see here.

Coolest part? Thanks to the encased internals of a dock, the iPod still plays music!

…The VanityRing will show off your stats?


If you consider yourself to be an Internet celebrity, then show the world your status with the VanityRing.

By plugging the VanityRing into the custom docking box and then typing your name into the included software, the VanityRing searches Google, and updates your ring’s screen with the number of hits your name pulls up.

    “The VanityRing doesn’t have a jewel, instead it shows the number of hits one gets, when he searches Google for the name of the person who wears it, a more adequate value in our time.”

How valuable are you?
