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.
There are lots of ways to get around town, but I’m pretty sure that most of us have never driven around in an electric diwheel transportation device. Nope, didn’t think so. EDWARD (which stands for Electric Diwheel with Active Rotation Damping) was created by students at the University of Adelaide’s School of Mechanical Engineering.
Geely’s new McCar concept vehicle stuffs an electric scooter in the back. While this might sound like science-fiction, it’s actually going to be made. The main question will be if it’s going to be available in the US.
I’m not quite sure how I missed this thing at CES. It must have been shown behind closed doors, or maybe some doors I just didn’t bother to peek through. At least the guys at Mashable shot some footage of this goofy looking two-seater, the GM EN-V.
If you like green vehicles, you might think of green cars like the Prius or maybe the Tesla Roadster. Motorcycles can be green too and a company called Mission Motors has pulled the wraps off an awesome looking electric racing motorcycle called the Mission R.
Despite most popular opinions, I really liked the Terminator Salvation flick. My favorite machines in the movie were those cool motorcycles that Skynet built. I think if Skynet built bikes, the M55 Hybrid Bike would be what they looked like.
It took me years to recognize that many asshats have no idea just how asshatty they really are. Take my cousin for instance; he once had a unicycle he wanted to show off on in front of some girls when we were about eight.
A company called SRI International is currently developing an exciting new technology called compliant electroadhesion. Simply put, an object with electroadhesive properties can hold or stick to most common surfaces, like wood, glass, brick or concrete by inducing electrostatic charges.
At first when I saw this image, I wondered what it was. It looks like some kind of a glowing animal head of some sort, a cross between a dragon and something else. I was surprised to learn that this is Russell, the Electric Giraffe.
The guys over at synthopia hunted up this wondrous electrical musical oddity, and I love it.
The Destroyer combines an electric guitar, mandolin and that wonderful outer-spacey-squealy instrument – the theremin – in one compact package.
The guys at Japan’s Gakken Otona no Kagaku Magazine are at it again, this time, they’ve created a really cool kit that lets you build your own mini electric guitar. Now, I’m not talking about the type the comes with Rock Band or Guitar Hero either.
The YikeBike is a new electric transport vehicle coming from New Zealand. The compact personal transporter features an innovative design that can speed you along through city streets and country roads without ever requiring you to stand up.
I’m sure you’ve all had your share of frustration opening up those annoying heat-sealed plastic clamshell packages. I’ve certainly had a war-wound or two from the nasty sharp edges as I tried desperately to crack into my new gadgets and goodies.
How’d you like to be the very first person in America to own this brand new electric car?
The ZERO from Italy’s Tazzari Electric is getting set to hit U.S. shores by early 2010, and now there’s a chance for you to be the tooling around in this cute subcompact car before anyone else gets one.
This electrical dude has got to be my favorite power strip ever. All other power cords in the universe should immediately be destroyed and replaced with an army of Electric Men. Do your part and head over to Urban Outfitters start plugging them in everywhere.
