One of the latest projects to join Lego Cuusoo is the Jules Verne Train that Doc Brown uses on Back to the Future III.

It's an old ball and chain mixed with modern technology that keeps you attached to it till the timer has got to zero.

Sega have launched Storm-G which is a Wipeout style game but without the missiles and such. You are put in the ride and navigate down a futuristic bob-sleigh track.
