It’s always good to have a backup plan. Take Iron Man for instance. What if your rockets should be in the shop or run out of fuel and the Stark limo is not available? Well, you had better have a second mode of transport.
I am always surprised when the Tokyo Motor Show rolls around each year, as I tend to see as many things that aren’t cars than new cars themselves. Case in point – Honda is showing off a new electric scooter at the show called the Motor Compo.
I learned how to ride a bike pretty late in life (not sure if I can say that I really know how to “ride” one – “wobble” is more like it.) So when I’m tired of wobbling and the occasional swerve sometimes, I hop off and walk the rest of the way to my destination instead.
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’ve featured a casemod or two that looked like a vehicle before, and even an R/C car computer that could drive, but never before have I seen a functional PC that could actually transport a human driver.
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.
I am sure that we have all been out and about at one time or another and ran across someone that had to ride one of those scooters to get around for some reason. Those things can be painfully slow when you are walking behind one trying to shop.
Andrew Sneath has invented a vehicle that allows people who know nothing about diving or swimming to safely experience the joys of being underwater, albeit in a controlled environment and with a slight dent to one’s dignity.
I will be the first to admit that getting around big airports is a massive pain in the rear. That is one of the main reasons why I never fly coupled with the fact that I always get stuck next to the 400-pound guy with a sweat problem.
I’ve certainly seen plenty of trucks and emergency vehicles on the road with signs that say “do not follow,” but I never really understood why they say that. Now here’s a vehicle that really needs one of those signs.
With football season in full swing, why not arrive at your next tailgate party in style? This ride-on cooler not only speeds you along to your destination, it’ll keep your drinks and snacks nice and chilled on the way.
