We have previously seen Parker Brothers’ real-life TRON lightcycles, and now there’s a chance for you to own one for a good cause. The latest bike has been dubbed the Xenon Light Motor Bike and it’s fully electric, courtesy of Evolve Motorcycles.
We’ve seen motorized skateboards in the past, but this may be the best one yet. Ben Forman and Geoff Larson started the ZBoard project as a Senior year mechanical engineering project while at the University of Southern California, eventually leading to three years of development.
Self-balancing unicycles aren’t a brand new concept, but other than the Ryno motorcycle, I really haven’t seen much footage of them in action. Apparently, I even missed their appearance on Mythbusters back in 2009, which I thought I watched religiously.
I’ll admit that generally I’m not a big fan of most green vehicles such as hybrids or EVs. I don’t have anything against the technology or saving the environment, I just think most of the green vehicles out there are butt-ugly.
City life is tough. Sure, you can walk most anywhere you want or take a cab, but having your own mode of transport gives you a bit of freedom. But cars are expensive. Bikes are good, but require a lot of energy on your part.
Have you ever wished that you had an electric bike, especially while hauling groceries home from the store? Well the Ridekick trailer promises to do everything an electric bike does, plus offer you some extra storage space as well.
For a moment, I thought that this dock for your super mini-car would make it into a mini-pickup, but that’s not the case. Once attached, the resulting car looks kind of cool, albeit strange and wrong in so many ways.
Sometimes when we think that technology is marching forward, it isn’t as a big of a deal as we thought and you find out that someone has had the technology for years already. Take the Chevy Volt for instance.
Do you guys remember those awesome TRON lightcycle motorcycles from Parker Brothers bike customizers? Well they’re back, and this time they’ve done away with the old gas-and-oil-guzzler and replaced it with something much more likely to exist in the world of TRON – an all-electric drive-train.
I think music is a great outlet to release pent-up emotions, be it the good kind or the bad kind. It doesn’t really matter if you’re not very musically inclined or can’t carry a tune; I mean, it’s got to be better than throwing a tantrum or breaking stuff, right?
The Chevy Volt is a cool car if you are into the green vehicle movement. You can charge the batteries in the car up at night for full EV driving for short drives. The cool part is that you don’t have to worry about being stranded because the Volt has a gasoline motor that recharges the batteries when the driving range exceeds the charge.
Back in January, I mentioned the Mission R electric racing motorcycle that was so cool and looked really sexy too. If that sort of racing motorcycle isn’t what gets your green geek lust stoked, perhaps this cruiser from Orphiro will get you excited.
Have you ever thought about creating electrical circuits with a pen? Apparently some engineers have, and came up with this prototype. These electric circuits were drawn using a silver-inked rollerball pen. The circuits can be drawn directly on paper, wood, and other surfaces.
I have always wanted to learn to fly, since aviation is an interest of mine. It’s been very interesting over the last few years to see the giant push for green vehicles in the automotive sector spill over into aviation.
