I’ve always wanted an easy and fun way of travelling short distances. I am quite sure you too wanted the same. Just for some guys like us, Inventist, a company that makes compact personal transportation vehicles, has unveiled Hovertrax. Hovertrax is a self-balancing, light-weight and small transporter that can carry you around at 6mph for 4 miles on a single charge. It can be used for both indoor as well as outdoor transportation.
We’ve featured many bizarre vehicles earlier, last week a huge bike with tractor tyres stole the show. Today is the time for Sternmotorbike, a bike powered by an airplane engine. The bike has 9 cylinders and not even a single silencer. I think the designer wants everyone to hear the bike roar. It took about one and a half years for Frank Ohle (designer of the bike) to complete this masterpiece.
Who wouldn’t want to race in a Batmobile? Team Galag, who seems to be a die-hard fan of Batman has built a real-life Batman Tumbler to compete in a race called the “Gumball 3000 Rally.” This Batman Tumbler cost the team a whopping £1 million ($1.6 million) to build. You can well imagine how rich the team members would be when they are spending the huge amount just to build this completely road legal Batmobile.
Chinese people are awesome in making things out of junk. This amazing motorcycle has also been made from junk by a chap known as Abulajon who is from Manas County, Xinjiang China. The huge bike would surely make all the bike riders jealous of its grand looks. It took Abulajon a whole year to complete the bike as well as he spent 8000 yuan (Rs. 70,000) in building it.
Riding a bicycle is fun but driving on busy roads among other hefty automobiles is sure to leave you with safety concerns. IDEO London hosted a two days event where designers and hackers from all across the world exhibited their brilliance and expertise. Jeremy Innes-Hopkins an Industrial Designer along with his team created a very useful device for cycle safety.
Creativity has no limits and when great artists like Mai Yamashita and Naoto KobayashiIn think of doing something different, innovations are bound to happen. ‘Dogsled’ is a project worked upon by the above mentioned artists that works with a wheeled sledge and 23 toy cars. The toy cars are remote controlled and are masked with fur to make them comparable to sledge pulled by dogs.
Who wouldn’t want to go deep down the beauteous “Seven Seas” and explore the fascinating world beneath? Well, if you happen to be some creature that can swim in water for several hours it would be easier. But you cannot. Just to assist you in doing so, a UK store Harrods exhibited an effigy of Spymaster’s Orcasub in Technology Showcase 2.0. Orcasub is a private submarine that can be controlled via a joystick and can go deep down to 2,000 ft.
A very unique, reliable and efficient helicopter is here to amaze you. The most interesting thing about the helicopter is that it is human powered, making it one of a kind. Design of rotor is the most essential part in the creation of this helicopter. Its efficiency could be made out from the fact that it can lift 300 pounds using 300 watts or even less. The astounding project has been undertaken by Kenneth Huff of Georgia.
Every now and then we see a car chase in movies. It may be fake or real but it definitely makes one hold one’s breath. Another great car chase has been shot by a Youtube user FinalCutKing which is real in terms of “Radio Controlled miniature cars” but fake in terms of the city through which cars are driven. The cars are radio controlled Ford Mustangs and the city is made up of cardboards, spray paint and glue. Anyway, it’s the best RC car chase I’ve ever seen. See it in the video below.
