 This week's top number four is the story about a fantastic self containing car:

" This is really cool, The Cornelius Comanns: Bufalino. 'Bufalino' by german industrial designer cornelius comanns is a small camper which is equipped to meet the basic needs of one person. the concept behind the project
is to offer absolute flexibility during periods of travel. the minimalist construction is based 
on the existing piaggio APE 50 three wheeled light transport vehicle; a model chosen for its
economic and fuel efficient benefits. However, the more complex structural components 
such as the frame, the chassis, and engine are derived from the original piaggio model. - The rest of the pictures in the link are really something :smileyhappy:"

 We finish the best of this week with a wonderful video showing a robotic arm made of lego, all it's missing are wolverine claws Smiley Wink
