Another Tank from the Lake

Yet another tank was recently extracted from one of the lakes near St. Petersburg. There are plenty of tanks left since WW2, each year a few of them are being pulled out by different enthusiasts. This one is particular by it's model "BT" which was translated as "Quick Moving Tank".
It had very narrow tracks so it had to move only on good roads, and the tracks could be completely removed so that it could roll on the rubber coated inner wheels on the good surfaces when army had to relocate quickly and there were good roads available.

Robocop of Perm

  They say that these days there is a strange thing cruising across the streets of Russian city Perm. It has police signs on itself and uses public roads to move, it speaks to passers by with a robot-type voice and has a few cameras which make photos of events. The local police office said that it's an experimental automated
police machine for improving security in the city. We don't have perfect photos of this thing, I hope they would be available a few days later, though today many Russian Internet news agencies mentioned this machine. We could call it Russian Robocop in action but actually it looks more like R2-D2 in action.

Protect Your Car

In Russia there is a popular opinion that you can't trust the serial versions of car alarm and protective systems - they have common ways of unlocking or
people who install them can sell the information to car thieves, so some prefer to use custom made stuff like this one gear shift stick lock.
