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?
