Maker Faire: 60 mpg is for wimps Video
At the Maker Faire in San Mateo, Calif., CNET's Tom Merritt talks with Felix Kramer as the engineer shows off his car that gets 100 miles per gallon.
Think hybrids are wimps? Toyota doesn't. Get a first look in this video from the 2007 Detroit Auto Show.
Felix's last album, 2004's Devin Dazzle & The Neon Fever, had its fair share of magical moments, but circumstances beyond his control meant he couldn't build on the runaway success of 2001's Kittenz And Thee Glitz. That album, its Miss Kittin-voiced lead single "Silver Screen (Shower Scene)" in particular, unwittingly sparked off electroclash and propelled Felix into the mainstream on the crest of a champagne wave. After a decade of underground acclaim and jetset DJing, Felix found himself in fashion, much to his amusement. "When Kittenz And Thee Glitz came out, I was living the glitz, I was wilding out, partying, you name it, man," recalls Felix. "I was kicking it with everybody in the industry, from L.A. to New York, I was out there, I was gone! But I burnt myself out from partying, man."
