Your eyes might just see a yellow Camaro that reminds you of Bumblebee from the Transformers movies, but what is it doing with an Xbox 360 controller on the outside? Well, that is because inside this remote controlled Camaro, lies a fully functional Xbox 360 Slim. I can just imagine being in an apartment, […]

One of the cooler vehicles from the Imperial Forces in the Star Wars franchise (on land, anyways) would be the imperious AT-AT Walkers that made short work of other land forces.
