Intel inside: The motorcycle

Custom motorbikes made to mark 30th anniversary


Intel may have been around for only half as long as Ferrari, but that doesn't mean it can't pull out the stops for its own special-edition creation. And what better way to celebrate the birth of a California company than with a commemorative motorcycle?

Gizmowatch says the chipmaking pioneer has created two custom motorbikes--one in real nuts and bolts, the other virtually for Second Life. The brick-and-mortar version, not surprisingly, showcases various examples of Intel's embedded technologies, including an automated dashboard that doubles as a PC and video screens instead of rear-view mirrors. It's also no slouch on the open road, boasting a 250-horsepower engine.

We have just one question: Is there a Mac version in the works?
