The real life connection

Courtesy of having an older brother who likes to share, I am into cars/bikes/boats/aircraft, video games, and Cracked.com.

Naturally, this was bound to happen sometime.

Dodge Fenrir

The 500-horsepower Viper V-10 engine powering the dual rear wheels gives this radical vehicle a potential top speed of nearly 400 miles per hour - for anyone who wants to test it. The Tomahawk roared into public view at the North American International Auto Show.



Unfortunately, unlike its fictional soul-mate, the Tomahawk is unable to turn or look unbelievably sexy. Maybe someone should send Dodge's engineers clips of Advent Children's motorcycle chases.

SOLDIER mice

Scientists have been astounded by the creation of a genetically modified "supermouse" with extraordinary physical abilities – comparable to the performance of the very best athletes – raising the prospect that the discovery may one day be used to transform people's capacities.

The mouse can run up to six kilometres (3.7 miles) at a speed of 20 metres per minute for five hours or more without stopping. Scientists said that this was equivalent of a man cycling at speed up an Alpine mountain without a break. Although it eats up to 60 per cent more food than an ordinary mouse, the modified mouse does not put on weight. It also lives longer and enjoys an active sex life well into old age – being capable of breeding at three times the normal maximum age.


(Not actual [mako-eyed] supermouse.)

Genetic modification with an effect similar to FFVII's mako + Jenova formula.

Behold... VIDEO GAME SCIENCE IN THE REAL WORLD.
