I was checking out the Crave Blog and we talked about transformer phones, so we basically glued this attachment kit on the back and it becomes a transformer with arms and legs. >> That's a pretty cool desk item. >> Yeah, it could, you know. >> What's the conversation is. >> It's like Gumby.

So this is a game and everybody's gonna wanna have. >> So, I wanna know like can you hold the cell phone side ways and like play like Guitar Hero? >> Yeah you totally plug-in a guitar tune now. >> You don't. >> But you do use keypads instead and so there are only three keys instead of five different press, but what they do to compensate for advanced users is you use multiple keypad combinations, so you have to press two or maybe three keys at once. >> Wow. >> The better you get. >> All right now, we're talking a lot about what's on the Crave Blog, but what about actually being able to use some of these things in a everyday situations. Well, this is one of our new segments. We call Craving Reality. ^M00:01:49 [ Music ] ^M00:01:54 >> Hey. >> Hey. >> You know I had an awesome time last weekend and I was just wondering, you know did you? >> Yeah, sure.

All right, now it's time where we look out for you in a piece called Do Not Crave. North Carolina based Joe Harmon design has created the world's first wooden supercar, which can reportedly reach speeds of 240 miles per hour. Now, this just scares me dude. It's a car and it's made up of wood -- wood. Now it's a 15-foot long car and it's called the Splinter. I would be afraid of getting a splinter in my woo-ho when I sit down in it. It has a 4.6-liter V-8 engine and it's made from maple, plywood and fiber board. A plywood engine eh? Well, vroom, vroom away. The whole idea sounds cool, but we gotta say, Do Not Crave. Okay, so there you have it. It was my first Crave.
