Thanks to all of you and our sponsors at Ford who enabled us to create the Happy Mutant Mobile, a heavily-mutated 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon that embodies much of what we (and you) imagined for a Boing Boing road machine. (Original announcement here and check out all the posts here!) Please enjoy these photos of the final road machine as masterfully modded by Theresa Contreras and her talented team at L&G Enterprises in San Dimas, California.
Our heartfelt thanks to our friends at Fantagraphics Books and Last Gasp, Boing Boing's favorite independent publishers, who loaded our mobile library with fine reading materials. And thank you to Archie McPhee, legendary providers of unusual toys, novelties, and gifts for their instant collection of wonders that filled the Happy Mutant Mobile's Cabinet of Curiosities.

The real joy here are the Easter eggs, such as two […]
Even the most expensive pair of hi-fi headphones can’t match the feeling of bass rumbling through your body at a live show. That’s why music aficionados designed The Basslet, an accessory that reproduces that sensation from your wrist. Does it make your whole body shake with deep subs? Not really, because that would be terrifying, but […]
They probably just sleep a lot. But still, you can remotely keep an eye on them when you’re at work and missing them deeply with this HD monitor from Kodak.If you have a new puppy that destroys everything in sight, or you just want to be a little more security-conscious, this WiFi camera is a […]
Thinking of a business idea is the easy part. Doesn’t even have to be a “good” idea, you can still get people to throw money at a non-existent venture, but to do that you need to at least have something even resembling a viable business plan.
