The previous record of 515.3 km/h (320 mph) was also held by a TGV, going back to 1990. Alstom hopes to boost sales following this €30 million staged event.

Submission + - A speaker system made out of broken hard-drives

zeroburn writes: "Afrotechmods has published an interesting mod on how to turn a series of hard drives into a speaker system. Their article features movies of the system in action, and promises that the quality of the audio is actually a lot better than what their camera captured. If you have some spare time (and hard drives!) you can build this yourself quickly. Its quality sure doesn't get close to a proper speaker system, but it's lack in fidelity is well compensated by its coolness factor!"
