This is the literal definition of "Uber Cool"

German police seize teens' motorized office chair

Why does this sound like it will show up on Country Fried Home Videos?

BERLIN (AP) -- German police have confiscated what may be the world's fastest office chair. Police say officers happened on the contraption - the work of two inventive 17-year-olds - in the western town of Gross-Zimmern on Saturday.

The pair had added a lawnmower engine, bicycle brakes and a metal frame to the revolving chair - making into a go-kart-like vehicle.

Via Slashdot, who as always have the best comments. My favorite:
Much like the ShamWow, it's from Germany, and you know how they make good stuff.

Oh, and here's the obligatory shout out to the greatest TV commercials in the last 10 years, VW's "Unpimp your ride". These kids have a great future.
