Widescape WS250: The World’s First Stand-Up Snowmobile
Introduced by upstart Canadian powersports company Widescape, the WS250 is allegedly the world’s first snowmobile designed to be ridden while standing up. Wait – who wants to stand? Sitting is where it’s at. And, if I’m being perfectly honest, I’d much rather be lying down.

The Cryptide: A Fully 3D Printed Shoe Inspired by Mythical Beasts
