This is not exactly the most scientific test we’ve ever seen, but it still seems likely that the new iPhone 5 is a little more robust than Samsung’s Galaxy S III.

Even after a swim in the pool, the former functioned more or less as it should while the latter seemed to have drowned. Consumers probably care more about features and technical functionality but some may see this as an additional selling point — or a reason to stay away.

The Galaxy quickly went kaput after both smartphones were dunked underwater while playing Psy’s “Gangnam Style” music video. The water apparently only causes the iPhone screen lock up at first — but it keeps playing the tunes.

In a final exhibition, the testers drop rock-hard household items like canned goods and TV remotes onto both smartphone models. The iPhone seems to emerge from the abuse unscathed, while a smack from a glass bottle puts the GS3 down for the count again.

Yeeeeeeeaaaaah …. not the most scientific survey.

An electric supercar — and it’s from where? This automotive oxymoron called The Concept One is from Croatia, believe it or not. See it in action and you may wonder if it wasn’t a crazy idea after all.

You better hope you are not casually crossing the street when this inventive car comes cruising down the road, you’ll never hear it coming — and with the car’s top speed being 190 MPH, this car is certainly in a league of its own.

Are you thinking this just might be the car of your dreams? Or that you’ve been thinking you wanted to replace your Prius with something more sporty — well this vehicle will only set you back a cool $980,000 — no big deal right?

Watch these videos and see this car in action — you can even put it on mute if you’d like … the only noise coming from this car will be tire screeching.

You may want to put your sunglasses on before you feast your eyes on THIS reflective chrome Camaro SS. Taking on a mirror-like façade, the driver of this vehicle will no longer have to beat the heat with a reflective window cover placed in their window.

Sporting a look similar to that of a car you would see in a Transformers movie, this Camaro is wrapped in painted vinyl that gives it that aluminum look.

Clearly a new standard of being flashy has been set for Camaro owners around the world, that standard or matte finish just won’t cut it anymore!

You could just picture Dorothy’s tin man driving this car — he’d be a perfect fit.

This hot viral video on YouTube blew up, and has already netted almost half a million hits.

Car art or insanity? You make the call.

As most of us do our best to swat flies AWAY, French artist Natacha Mercier did her best to collect them. Using fly paper, a greenhouse, and 100,000 flies along with a Mercedes Benz — the artist created this mobile piece of art.

What inspired this outlandish work of art you ask? The artist said after watching a man decked out in all-white attire and sporting gold “bling” exit his BMW, she witnessed the women around her (herself included) “Drop like flies.” Thus the creation of the fly-covered car.

Upon completion, the artist took the car for a joyride through the streets of Toulouse, France, while onlookers gawked at the vehicle — much like the scenario that inspired it.

What do you think?! Art or just plain crazy?!

Check out the hot video of the fly corpse-covered monstrosity here:

A driver in a Smart Car made a not-so-smart move when he led Houston police on a high speed chase. This toy … I mean car … reached a top speed of 92 MPH on the Interstate 10.

Bet this driver isn’t feeling so smart now — according to Jalopnik — he apparently drove back to his house and casually got out of his car.

Several officers arrested David Wheaton, the driver, on spot without incident.

We’re sure this is the most adventurous thing we’ve ever heard a Smart Car doing! And we just can’t get over the picture! It looks like Mama Car and Baby Car.

But hey, smart car owners everywhere must now be very proud…

We think Texas police must have shared a laugh at some point. How could you not?
