    1405555080

    The world needs crazy inventors with wild dreams. While we might not long for the things that they create, their contraptions certainly make the day a little more enjoyable.

    If you're of a certain age your simulated driving experiences probably followed an order something like this: Tonka, Hot Wheels, slot car track, radio controlled and finally (and at long last) driving/racing video games.
