It has been dubbed the invention of the year -- popular science magazine.
And with today's technology that's not an easy thing to do this is an unmanned tank.

Twin Brothers Mike and Jeff how working out of a garage in New Jersey so Mike you start building this tank in your garage right at a high school.
That's somewhat 1516 years ago.
What did you come up with this idea.
What we've always been building we -- projects since we've been separate.
He end up back in 2000 actually we got together -- what is our next project.
-- and this came down the -- we say let's build the world's fastest track vehicle.
You know we can do it a lot -- thought we could but.
You know 89 years later.
We've done it in it's been great success it is preview article I consider the human element.
It's remarkable what's been in this vehicles actually -- It's built in -- thus were from and it's been weaponized in New Jersey so.
But what it is is is we wanted to basically develop a vehicle that you can remove the human element for any.
And -- -- does that WGC because it's quick it's fast.
It's durable it's very cost effective.
In fact -- one Melissa and expensive did you develop it so basically anywhere that there's a -- Environment we don't want to send -- human.
We can send a full size vehicle and they're not not the smaller overbought but little soft -- their wounds on the grounds of missing student sixty miles an hour.
You controller with a joystick and a computer.
It's modular too which means it's easy to ship in other words they have a Hummer glossy chassis somewhere in Iraq or Afghanistan you can just replace the part.
It's like put together -- it was right Jenna.
It is edited out -- -- -- completed just like -- and it snaps -- -- CNN com.
It's beautiful for maintenance.
-- it's basically a different modular pieces so if you wanted to -- by just that the track championship the tracks and and suspension there's a senator Johnson so.
Well said bill it's basically of what the legal system by the way out what our viewers -- know this is that we are earmark money guys I don't know if you've seen our show very often during that for the year mark browser last year.
But we like to make fun of earmarks of the day OK we like to make fun of let's call that.
Wasteful spending this however is something the military might be able to really get its hands -- -- use effectively and we hope to see it tests and of Iraq sometime later in the year.
