March 13th, 2015: Big Shiny Truck
If you're ever in need of a full-sized replica of a big truck with twenty two people and rearview mirrors which play videos of traffic in London, Mumbai and Dubai, you're in luck. Valay Shende can, and has, whipped one up by welding pieces of stainless steel together in only 18 months.

Making that truck took some balls.

I looks like it's made of solid ball bearings, but really he works with disks that are a lot like bottle caps. So you should thing of this in terms of bottle caps.

The link says the shiny discs are spot-welded together. They aren't, they're TIG welded, but I doubt many people slumming the art gallery know, or care. Likely just us weirdos, right Digr?
