The Gizmodo GizMod Rukus: Our Own Personal Drive-In

As some of you noted in the comments after we installed the PS3, the GizMod Rukus has an HD movie and games system, and three standard definition screens. So this week, we’ve decided to change that by installing an Epson TW450 HD projector.

Steering Wheels And Smartphone Holders Probably Shouldn't Mix

Mounting your phone near your steering wheel – you know, for GPS directions, easy music access – is a good idea. Mounting your phone on your steering wheel probably is not.

Make Your iPhone The Heart And Soul Of Your Car Stereo

Someone Finally Gets Their Hands On The Nissan Leaf IRL

At long last, Nissan delivered the first Nissan Leaf to a lucky San Francisco resident. Limited runs of the electric car, which has a 187km range on a single charge, will roll out in five US states over the next year, as Nissan ramps up for the full launch in 2012. [Gearlog]

The Gizmodo GizMod Rukus: Anyone For GT5?

In an ideal world, every car would come with a Playstation 3 installed under the drivers seat with a copy of Gran Turismo 5 inserted, so you could sit in the back and pretend to drive the car you’re in around a racetrack without the risk of exploding in a fiery ball of pain when you crash. Sadly, this isn’t an ideal world, but thanks to our latest mod, we can do exactly that with the GizMod Rukus.

I’d like to say that no one was harmed in the making of this video, but when you go through so many car-on-car, car-on-bike and bike-on-bike collisions in such a short amount of time, well, that’s just being unrealistic.
