…It’s Website Wednesday: The Casual Collective?

The Casual Collective

From the guys that brought you the highly addictive Desktop Tower Defense game comes The Casual Collective, a website filled with games that are guaranteed to suck hours out of your otherwise productive life.

The Casual Collective Games

Featuring classics like Desktop Tower Defense and Flash Elements Tower Defense as well as newcomers like Desktop Armada, a fleet command game where you must destroy the enemy base on your desktop, Minions, a multiplayer battle game similar to DTD, and Buggle Stars, a fun and addicting game where you must jump, hop, race, fly and dive your Buggle around to collect stars, there are sure to be games for just about everyone.

Just don’t start playing if you don’t have an hour or two to waste, because they don’t call these addicting on accident!

…The Hamann Stallion is mean?

Hamann Stallion Exterior

Hamann’s Stallion is a Porsche 911 Turbo based monster.

With 630 horses coming from the twin turbocharged, 3.6 liter engine, the car gets to 60 in just 3.3 seconds (a full six tenths of a second off of the regular turbo), and has a new maximum speed of 359km/h (223 mph).

Hamann Stallion Interior

As if a monster engine wasn’t enough, Hamann also lowered the roofline by up to 8cm for extra aerodynamics, and mounted a huge wing to the back in case you decide to fly. (Because at the speeds you’d be going in one of these, that’s a definitely possibility.)

Now if they just offered it in a color besides gold…

…Go-karts need more power?

Hayabusa Kart

There are two recipes for fast:

  1. Power + Power = Fast
  2. Power – Weight = Fast

While the Bugatti Veyron is obviously king of the former, a much smaller competitor is trying to become the king of the latter: The Hayabusa Kart.

By taking a shifter cart chassis and strapping on 1,300 cc’s of Suzuki Hayabusa power, the power to weight ratio goes through the roof, and the end result is a kart that wants to do little more than fly forward in a straight line.

Sure, it doesn’t turn, it doesn’t handle bumps very well, and it’s probably not street legal, but who wants to worry about all of those things when you could be out roasting the tires off of a kart with a deadly amount of ground only an inch away?

…Red Bull lets you design your own Flugtag?

Red Bull Flugtag Flight Lab

The Red Bull Flugtag Flight Lab lets you build, customize, and fly your very own Flugtagmobile.

If design isn’t exactly your thing, then pick from a variety of pre-completed planes, and see how far you can get by flapping your wings.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Rinspeed sQuba?

Rinspeed sQuba

When I first saw pictures of the Rinspeed sQuba car, I thought it was a clever Photoshop or some sort of concept car art piece.

However, the sQuba is real, and can both drive on land and “fly” underwater.

Dubbed “the world’s first real submersible car”, it features three electric motors, two Seabob jet drives, zero exhaust emissions, LED lighting technology, VDO controls that work underwater, and a fully salt-water resistant interior/exterior.

Drive it into the water and it floats along the surface like a buoy. Then, just crack the door and it sinks into the depths. Hop out though, and the driverless (diverless?) car floats to the surface automatically.

James Bond, eat your heart out.
