This is somewhere for everyone to put things they find that are interesting or weird.

A possibly genuinely water powered car! Maybe :?:

unfortunatly I'm on my Wii, so I can't give a link. However, it was in the Daily Mirror, so there will probably be an article about it on their website.

All I can say is, in a crash....Metal car vs Fabric/Fibre...it'll be an easy fight

I saw that in the paper as well. (I believe it was the Daily Mirror), looked proper weird. The fabric crinkles up like skin when you open the door. :o

Yeah, twas the Mirror.

I doubt it will be allowed for retail, as it would fail every crash test.
An interesting idea though, I like how it 'Transforms' though.

Interesting and weird double points, but what I can't fathom is judging by the size of 50+ american women how the whole thing didn't explode :scratch:
