LEGO Millennium Falcon Inspired By “Cars” Movie

The Millennium Falcon is a spacecraft in the Star Wars universe commanded by smuggler Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and his Wookiee first mate, Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew). The highly modified YT-1300 light freighter first appears in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977), and subsequently in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983) and in a cameo in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005). The Falcon also appears in a variety of Star Wars Expanded Universe materials, including books, comics, and games; James Luceno’s novel Millennium Falcon focuses on the titular ship.
According to Star Wars creator George Lucas, the Falcon’s design is inspired by a hamburger, with the cockpit being an olive on the side. The ship originally had a more elongated appearance, but the similarity to the Eagle Transporters in Space: 1999prompted Lucas to change the Falcon’s design. The original model was modified, re-scaled, and used as Princess Leia’s ship, Tantive IV.
The sound of the ship traveling through hyperspace comes from two tracks of the engine noise of a McDonnell Douglas DC-9, with one track slightly out of synchronization with the other. To this, sound designer Ben Burtt added the hum of the cooling fans on the motion-control rig at ILM.



Funny Traffic Signs That Include Animals

Traffic signs or road signs are signs erected at the side of roads to provide information to road users. With traffic volumes increasing over the last eight decades, many countries have adopted pictorial signs or otherwise simplified and standardized their signs to facilitate international travel where language differences would create barriers, and in general to help enhance traffic safety. Such pictorial signs use symbols (often silhouettes) in place of words and are usually based on international protocols. Such signs were first developed in Europe, and have been adopted by most countries to varying degrees. Traffic signs can be grouped into several types. For example, Annexe 1 of the Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals (1968), which at 30 June 2004 had 52 signatory countries, defines eight categories of signs:
A. Danger warning signs
B. Priority signs
C. Prohibitory or restrictive signs
D. Mandatory signs
E. Special regulation signs
F. Information, facilities, or service signs
G. Direction, position, or indication signs
H. Additional panels
In the United States, Canada and Australia signs are categorised as follows:
Regulatory signs
Warning signs
Guide signs
Street signs
Route marker signs
Expressway signs
Freeway signs
Welcome Signs
Informational signs
Recreation and cultural interest signs
Emergency management (civil defense) signs
Temporary traffic control (construction or work zone) signs
School signs
Railroad and light rail signs
Bicycle signs






The Demolition Race: A Race in Different Style

The picture the site has uploaded is about a race of cars. The cars are not as expensive and fast as they are used in general car race. But they are from the waste cars. The cars are built by the inexpensive and damaged body, almost retired engine and very normal tire. They are different in shape and color. They are raced in a muddy field and the picture will represent it as a race of car fighting. One may find one car is hitting another or going over it. This car racing is not only confined in small cars but also surrounded in other sections. For example; a bus or peculiar shaped car may be seen on the racing. This short of play is little bit dangerous for the racer because the type of car they use and the way they play the game. So precaution is mandatory before going for race.

Wild Pigs Crash Test

In the picture you will see the crash testing done with wild pigs to see if the cars are strong enough. As the wild pigs roam a lot on the roads of Germany, automakers need to check these test results as well. Obviously this car hasn’t passes the crash test as the dummy wild pigs have won against the speeding car.

The impact was so heavy that you can see the crushed bonnet of the car in the second picture. Although nothing seems to have happened to the driver, the heavy pig has smashed the front of the car completely. So do the automakers still consider it a win as the driver is safe? As far as I know, people love their cars too much and wouldn’t risk buying it if they though a single pig could damage it so much with one high speed impact.

Jamaica Porche spotted in Moscow

The beautiful black Porche seen in Moscow seems to have it all. It looks great, has lavish interiors and has wheels to die for. The weed symbol may get a lot of attention but looks great anyway. The same can be found even on the seat upholstery. The car is a looker and will surely make you feel proud owning and driving it.

With 4 exhaust pipes, the efficiency will be greater and the interiors will help you get in touch with your funky side. The multicolored stripes go on the top of the wheel, take over the speedometer and other gauges, and finally go all around the inside of the car. You will also find color around the music system and the gear- shift. The splash of color can take you by surprise but then now it is all about doing the unexpected.
