While hundreds of thousands of people put down a $100 deposit for an opportunity to buy Tesla’s Cybertruck when it eventually goes into production, I’d bet that only a small portion of those people will actually end up buying one when they find out the true retail price.
Say what you will about Elon Musk, the man knows how to build hype and get people talking.

Stuttgart-based electric bike maker Sol Motor’s Pocket Rocket looks like an e-bike, but it is something new and unusual. It’s faster than electric bikes, but not quite a moped. It’s also not fast enough to be an electric motorcycle.
Most electric bikes are lacking in features, except of course for the most obvious one, that being that it’s an electric bike. Well, have a look at the Uni Micro Electric Folding Bike. It has a retro vibe, but with some cleaner, modern lines.
What the heck is this? Did somebody squish a Lamborgini? Nope, what you’re looking at is the Mikro MM1, and despite looking like a toy, it is a full-fledged electric “supercar.” It is actually pretty adorable the more I look at it.

If you have ever stuck a 9-volt battery on your tongue, you know that the sensation it creates almost seems salty. That is what this fork is all about. The Electric Flavoring Fork uses the same principle to simulate the taste of salt for those who can’t have salt, but love the taste.
