Some people love anime heroes that much.

We all know how popular anime are worldwide, but especially in the coutry that invented them, Japan. Known as Itasha, the art of covering the body of a car with fictional anime characters, is very popular in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Gatherings to show off the coolest Itasha cars are held regularly, and the latest was organized in Nagara town, just north of Tokyo. Called “Winter 2009 Itasha Collection“, it was held on January 25 and brought together over 150 cool cars. A 20 million-yen Itasha car was reportedly also presented there.

Polar Bear Floats on the Thames

For the first time ever, a polar bear has been spotted floating on a small iceberg, in London.

It’s not ever day you see a polar bear floating on the river Thames, let alone one that is 100% recyclable. To celebrate the opening of Eden, a new natural history television channel, a sculpture of a stranded polar bear and his cub was comissioned and set afloat in Greenwich, southeast London.

The whole point of Eden‘s 16-foot-sculpture was to attract attention on a burning environemental issue, the melting of the polar bear‘s habitat. If extreme measures are not taken, the largest land predator on Earth could become extinct.

The recyclable polar bear was launched on the Thames on January 26, at 6:30 in the morning, and traveled for 7.5 miles before stopping beside Tower Bridge for a photo shoot.

Gold-plated Mercedes

It appears gold-plating your car is the latest fashion in rich Arab countries.

Take this gorgeous Mercedes AMG, one of the most beautiful cars on the market today. Its owner wanted to take his “common” car and turn it into so mething that would really turn heads. So what do you do when you have too much money to count, and want to make something shiny shine even more? You gold-plate it of course.

So if you are ever in a country like, let’s say Dubai, and see a golden car drive by, don’t make a big deal out of it, it’s just their thing.

The Obama Action-figure

Obama-mania obviously hit Japan as well, as they rush to buy the best Obama action-figure ever.

Barack Obama is already a hero not only for Americans, but also for the Japanese. The Obama action-figure can be found on the shelves of many japanese toy-stores, together with patriotic accessories, like the American flag and changeable palms, to better express himself.

Obama-san also has some damn cool weapons to fight terrorism, political opponents and maybe even the economic crysis.  The new American president comes equipped with a katana (Japanese sword) and wakizashi (long knife), a gun and a rifle, but also with a very cool light-saber, to help him fight his nemesis, Darth Vader(?!?).

The Obama action-figure was created by Hong Kong-based toy company DID Corporation and can be bought online here

A Sea of Timber

More like a beach full of timber but there are some planks in the sea as well.

Two weekends ago, the Sussex shoreline was covered by nothing but wet timber from the sunken Greek vessel, Ice Prince. The ship sunk  26 milles off Portland Bill, but most of the 2,000 tons of timber it was carrying was washed on Sussex coast-line.

Authorities warned locals not to remove any of the planks from the beaches, as they risked a fine of up to 2,500 pounds. Despite the warning many British came with whatever vehicles they had, to load-up some waterlogged wooden planks. One thief was caught as he was loading his hatchback Mazda.

Best Bull-bar in Russia

It’s not your average bull-bar but it works.

What do people do when they don’t have enough money to install a normal bull-bar on their SUVs? Well in Russia they just get a log and attach it to the front of the vehicle with some iron bolts. It doesn’t look as good as a normal bull-bar, but it’s a lot cheaper and it gets the job done.

The Backpack Bike

It’s exactly what it sounds like, a bike and a backpack at the same time.

Perfect for down-hill bikers, the backpack bike can be folded and carried as a simple backpack when you’re climbing to the hilltop, and converted to a sturdy mounatin-bike ready to tackle the rough terrain, on your wayback down. It’s made out of an ultra-light material that makes it easy to carry by both men and women.

Hidden Command Center

And a great way to hide from your parents without getting bored.

I know it looks like an ordinary closet from the outside, and that’s the idea, but inside lies a powerful command center from where a computer geek does great things like…playing World of Warcraft, hacking people’s computers and other fun activities.

This has to be one of the best computer hideouts I’ve ever seen. Not recommended for claustrophobics though.

Longest Eye-lashes Ever

And I do mean long eye-lashes.

Fashion has been getting weirder and weirder for quite a while now, so sooner or later something like this had to happen. People are getting bored of hair-extensions and they’re getting their eye-lashes extended. It seems sight isn’t an issue when you’re trying to be a true fashionista.

I wonder what’s next, pubic hair extensions?

Marussia – Russia’s Super-Car

Didn’t know Russia builds super-cars? That’s alright, they didn’t, until now.

Marussia is the invention of Russian GT driver Nikolai Fomenko and it has become the first Grand Turismo car built in Russia. That’s not the most important thing about Marussia, since most of the parts come from abroad, but the fact that you can change its body as easy as replacing a mobile phone’s facet.

The steel frame that holds the 3,5 litre engine and all the other important parts is the core of the Marussia, while the ultra-light plastic body can be easily changed by the owner.

Marussia is a true GT racer, producing 300 horse-power and accelerating from 0 to 100 km. per hour in just 4.2 seconds.

Racing Limousines

GP Limos is certainly an original idea. Nobody has ever created a racing vehicle to fit 6 passengers and the driver.

Mike Pettipas is the mastermind behind GP Limos and creator of the World’s Fastest Street-Legal Limousine. The concept of GP Limos is pretty simple, build a racing car that looks like a Formula 1 car, fit it with a powerful engine and accomodate 6 passengers.

No info is revealed regarding the GP Limos‘ engines but it’s got to be something realy impressive, if Pettipas wants to beat the Bugatti Veyron‘s speed record of 253 mph.

GP Limos is a service offered to the public, so if you want a lap around the track in one of these babies just go the official GP Limos website and get in touch.
