Not even slightly map related, but very cool nonetheless:

Ok that's incredibly cool. And suddenly steampunk doesn't seem quite so farfetched :)

Neat Stuff... Jesse James (here in the US) is/was supposed to be doing something with a hydrogen? powered car - didn't get to see the show when it aired.

That's pretty cool. While watching the video, I was reminded of the sequence in Buckaroo Bonzai. I also was thinking of a steampunk/Mad Max mash-up. ;)
