Doing my daily browse through the awesomeness that is Kotaku, I was struck by something about the site's posting of the WiiCar, a Toyota Scion with a Wii inside and Wii written all over the outside. It kind of reminded me of something pretty close to us here at Giz AU - the GizMod. Were Nintendo ripping off our idea?

We're giving the GizMod Rukus away to one lucky Gizmodian. In case you missed the thrilling journey as we upgraded the Rukus from factory model to geek machine, here's a friendly montage of the process. Enjoy!

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.

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.

The GizMod Rukus has been getting better and better over the past few weeks, but there's still one area that needs a high definition makeover - the outside. And in a move that is either inspired or unbelievably foolish, we're going to pass that job over to you.
