On a related note, less stylish but just as wack, here's a motorized nano car:

"The motorized model of the nanocar is powered by light. Its rotating motor, a molecular framework that was developed by Ben L. Feringa at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, was modified by Tour's group so that it would attach in-line with the nanocar's chassis. When light strikes the motor, it rotates in one direction, pushing the car along like a paddlewheel."

The thing. (http://www.media.rice.edu/media/NewsBot.asp?MODE=VIEW&ID=8448&SnID=397273424)

No way! Think of how much better the fly will be able to see with its glasses!

You guys aren't relating the REAL historical achievement for science here. In the future, stylish flies wearing cool cutting-edge laser technique built glasses will drive nano cars.

The missing link here is the Insect Driver's Licence.

That would be tough considering their lifespan.

Look at that, have you ever seen a fish so happy? Fish need bicycles, just like flies need nano glasses.

Haha, I ACTUALLY laughed out loud when I read that.

Why fly when you can pimp nanocar! *giggles* i'm still with the image in the head.
