I used to live for building cars out of my LEGO blocks, and I clearly recall the teachers having to gather up all the wheels at pre-K to stop the 4-year-old brawls from happening because that jerk James tried to bogart all the wheels.
Imagine a roller coaster that has no motors or winches. Instead, you must use your brute strength to pedal your way along its rails. One that is four stories high, with no guard rail, and the only thing keeping you in your seat is a seat belt.
This 7-person tricycle comes to us from the world’s most useful store, Hammacher Schlemmer. It seats six people too many. This thing is a nightmare because you all have to face each other and interact while you are all dressed like nerds, while everyone else is watching your group as you head to work.
Anyone who has ever held onto the dream of climbing into a personal VTOL aircraft that can take them where they want to go has to be excited at the idea of the EHang 184 automated aircraft that we talked when it showed up at CES 2016.
Are you so filthy rich that you can’t stand driving in a car like the rest of the commoners around you? That’s understandable. Let the peasants suffer through traffic jams and pollution while you soar to your destination in nothing but blue skies, safe within the cockpit of the Cobalt Co50 Valkyrie personal aircraft.
Segway has a new personal transport vehicle that Paul Blart wouldn’t be able to use. The vehicle is called the Ninebot by Segway miniPro and it has a maximum weight capacity of 185 pounds. If you meet that weight capacity, it will haul you about 14 miles per charge at a max speed of 10 mph.
Sure, you could get yourself one of those fancy electric longboards that are all the rage right now, but they’re expensive. Fully decked out, one of these will cost you around $1,600(USD), and will take time to arrive.
You think you know traffic jams? You have no idea what one is until you’ve experienced China’s infamous traffic jams. The country has some epic gridlock problems, but this cool elevated bus might help if they go ahead with their plans for it.
I can distinctly remember taking my kids places when they were stroller size, and fighting with them to stay in the stroller. All kids want to do is escape that thing, and as I walked along in the Texas heat all I wished was that someone would push me around in a shaded comfy stroller.
This Barbie Power Wheels Jeep was converted into a Jurassic Park jeep, and it looks so much cooler now. If you were a kid, would you rather pretend to be Barbie riding around in a pink jeep or would you rather pretend that you are driving around a park filled with Dinosaurs?
Holy Mackerel. This guy wanted to up the game of his boxy old Volvo, so naturally he covered it in animatronic singing and dancing lobsters and Big Mouth Billy Bass fish – as any of us would have done.
There are various features of Tesla’s cars that can be activated using mobile apps. If you have a compatible garage door opener, you can even have a Tesla vehicle enter or exit your garage with just a few taps.
One look at the image below and you should know that when I say hoverboard distance world record, I don’t mean those dumb “hoverboards” with two wheels that will burn your house down. I am talking about a real flying hoverboard that will get you into the air.
Colin Furze has a long history of creating crazy contraptions and doing crazy stunts. He may have outdone himself this time with his homemade hoverbike. Yes, it looks fun as hell. It also looks dangerous as hell should something go wrong.
So you want a cool personal transporter that can carry your stuff. Bikes take up too much space. Segways are too slow and expensive. A group of industrial design students at California State University in Long Beach wanted to tackle these problems, so they invented the Nimble Urban: a human-powered scooter with a built-in cargo platform.
Tesla Motors’ cars are some of the nerdiest vehicles you can get. But programmer su – tesla made her Model S even smarter by rooting the car’s on-board computer, allowing her to emulate the Linux distro Gentoo on it.
