So you’re on the golf course, hitting the ball into the hole, then getting into your golf cart to travel to the next one. Or worse yet, you’re walking with a cart. Either way, it can take a while to get to the next hole.
I can think of few stranger corporate collaborations than that of a major automaker and a major tequila maker. But that’s exactly what’s going on between a Ford and Jose Cuervo.
You see, engineers at Ford have figured out a way to convert old agave plants into car parts.
This winter get yourself a real snowmobile. Something with real power and style. Something like this Lamborghini Huracán snowmobile designed by Rain Prisk Designs.
You’ll wish you had snow year round if you owned a snowmobile like this one.
Before TRON was able to ride his first lightcycle, you can bet he had to learn to ride a bike. That bike would probably look just like the Cyclotron. This futuristic looking smart bicycle has hubless wheels, and its tires use no air.
You may have never heard of omni-directional car wheels. I certainly hadn’t. What that means are wheels and tires that allow the vehicle to move in any direction you need it to within the length of its body.
This is the sort of nightmarish bike H.R. Giger might sell you if he owned a creepy bike store. It’s slow, creepy and inspired by the Theo Jansen’s Strandbeest. This thing was built by California art and engineering collective CARV.
Most new cars these days come with a backup camera, or offer one as an option. But if you’ve got a car without a backup camera, you’ll definitely want to check this out.
The Pearl RearVision is a license plate cover that will alert you when there are obstacles behind the car while you’re backing up.

These days, cars offer all sorts of built-in technology to improve driver safety and convenience. But there are some automotive gadgets that you’ll want to consider adding after the fact too.
Looking to buy the ultimate vehicle for the post-apocalyptic wasteland? Want a truck that instills fear in men’s hearts, and shoots flames at your enemies? Well, you can. It’s available on eBay right now.
Here’s what its sellers have to say about it:
Built on a 1991, 28-foot-long International boom truck, the Scorpion is a 55 feet long, 22-45 feet wide, 39-45 feet tall exact replica of a female emperor scorpion named Fluffy.
It is a tragic scenario that has been in the news far too often. Kids being left in a car and dying from the extreme heat. So far this summer, 12 kids died from heatstroke due to being left behind in hot cars.
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.
