This week, Sagem the mobile firm which not everyone knows alot about, announced that they have managed to embed a whole GPS receiver into a traditional sim card. This is extrememly exciting news, because the result of this technology would mean it could be possible in the future to bring GPS functionality into any phone. I suppose now the next step is the need to have a GPS software or application which could be globally supported in order to be able to exploit this further.

If you don’t know much about RipSaw (pic above), it’s basically an untamed beast-like supercharged, all terrain tank. The name RipSaw really isn’t a joke, you would never want to stand in the way of something which can easily rip through fields, snow, water, mud, you name it! RipSaw?s 650hp engine can drive it from 0-50 in 3.5 seconds, with a top speed of 80 mph, over just about any possible terrain. And now, it’s been modified, no longer does anyone need to sit inside this beast to control it, thanks to some new GPS guidance…
Watch the video after the break and you’ll see some variation in the different versions of RipSaw tanks that these guys have created so far and check out the new RipSaw II!
