June 11, 2008: Life Imitates Car Wars

Those of you who have burned up years of your life playing Car Wars will recall that the cars are electric, with a motor in every wheel.

I wrote that because I am a brilliant engineer and can see the future. Bzzzzzzt. No, actually, I wrote that because it justified a low-speed turning rule that was easy to explain and made the cars maneuverable and fun.

Nevertheless, real brilliant engineers have now built a car that works that way. And I bet it's maneuverable and fun. Can I have one?
