You've probably seen dudes on TV making Evel Knievel-style jumps in shopping carts, usually preceded (and followed) by disclaimers telling you not to try this yourself. That's good advice, especially since you can get a decent thrill without actually risking your one and only neck just by playing MonkeyWantBanana's Shopping Cart Hero 3 on your Android smartphone. While it sounds like a shopping game, it's actually a jumper, and the whole idea is to make the longest and most elaborate jump possible. The game involves a stick figure pushing a shopping cart downhill, jumping in, and … Read more
Some things were never meant to go together, but that hasn't stopped some insane mechanics from fitting a honking V8 engine to a shopping cart to create the Shopper Chopper hot rod.
Admittedly, this isn't just a stock shopping cart stolen from the grocery store parking lot. It's custom built to accommodate a height of more than 9 feet and a length of more than 12 feet. You could fit a lot of cereal boxes and Doritos into this monster, but it's already fitted with seating capacity for six people.… Read more
Ever since I was a kid I've had a fascination with racing. My father took me to motorcycle GP races at the age of 4 and we went every year for most of my young life. The big-name racers of the day, the roar of the engines, and the smell of formula fuel as they sped around the track all added to the fun and excitement for the young version of me.
These days I'm not much of a spectator racing fan, but if a new racing game comes out (really on any platform), I somehow automatically become interested. A big racing game release today on iOS got me looking for more fun driving games -- and while I know they're not for everybody -- if you like to "go fast," these games are for you.
This week's collection of iOS apps is all about racing. The first lets you upgrade cars and compete on numerous tracks with a 3D top-down view. The second challenges you to compete, driving old-school go-carts around tracks and has a great overall feel. The third is a well-polished sequel that many racing game fans will probably automatically download.… Read more

Looking for a food cart in Portland, Ore.? There's probably one right in front of you. But maybe there's one up the street that's better. Now you can find out such things with a new mapping layer from Microsoft for its Bing Maps service.
Having grown up in Portland, I can tell you that most locals know where the best carts are, along with the food item to get at those places. But one thing the locals won't always be able to tell you is the location of the traveling food carts--the ones that are not … Read more
Peachtree City, Georgia is a planned community that boasts more than 90 miles of multiuse paths that connect neighborhoods, shopping centers, schools, and recreation facilities. A large percentage of families own at least one golf cart to tool around town on, including hundreds of students who drive to school in them. The community's low-car appetite helped earn it a spot on Money magazine's Top 100 cities to live.
But the community is about to weigh in on the green-versus-really green debate, as the town is considering to ban the future registration of gas-powered golf carts.
The city of … Read more
On this week's Crave vodcast, we attempt to answer the pressing question of which is creepier: a Barbie cleavage cam or a machine-gun-wielding security cam. Either way, a camera's gonna getcha. Also on tap are a wide array of robotic walking aids, from an even lazier version of the roller shoe to sweet bionic legs for the disabled and the military. Plus, Jasmine thinks a killer drone is cute, Donald geeks out on a Super Mario star tattoo, and Eric is just...Eric.Subscribe in iTunes SD Video | Subscribe in RSS SD Video… Read more
We really wish that we could say that this was an April Fools' joke, but it's not. The Garia Soleil de Minuit golf cart is an actual product, heralded as "the most expensive golf cart ever made by a manufacturer."
The Soleil de Minuit is based on the already pricey Garia golf cart (MSRP $17,499), a luxury cart built in the same factory as the Porsche Cayman and Boxter using aluminum frame made by the same company that supplies Aston Martin and Jaguar. The Garia features an F1 inspired suspension and a drive train built by … Read more
