Continue reading for more spy shots of the Veyron limousine. Click here for bonus images of a real Mansory Bugatti Veyron."Rest assured that no W16 monster of an engine is powering that thing, but even if it did have a potent engine, it would kind of defeat the purpose, as a stretched limo isn't supposed to get you from A to B with a lot of urgency, right? Other notable cars shown off in the video mostly hail from the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche, but we also get a quick BMW i8 cameo," reports Car Scoops.

Continue reading for five more bizarre gadgets that actually exist.Kentucky-based designer Paula Blankenship was tired of travel pillows, so she decided to invent the "NodPod". After countless prototypes, she came up with a miniature hammock that sits right underneath your chin, attaching to the headrest of a plane, train or automobile with Velcro. "The reason it's hard to rest or sleep while traveling is because you can't keep your head, neck and back perpendicular and at a 90-degree angle similar to how you sleep in bed at night," said Blankenship.Combining gaming with exercise, the SymGym is touted as "a resistance-based game controller and gaming platform" that automatically adjusts the level of resistance according to the gameplay intensity. Instead of buttons, you use levers and pedals to play the games. One example is when walking uphill in a video game, pushing the pedals is going to be significantly tougher than when walking on flat roads.While French tattoo artist JC Sheitan Tenet lost his right hand 22-years ago, he wanted to make the best of things after seeing the work of artist Jean Louis Gonzales, known for his Steampunk-inspired mechanized taxidermies. After meeting Gonzal at various tattoo conventions, the first prototypes became a reality. "Tenet wanted to draw tattoos with an arm that he'd never used for that before, and I thought it was a great idea to mechanize a prosthetic. The aim was to fix the tattoo machine to an aesthetic version of his prosthetic arm," Gonzal told VICE Motherboard.
