Banana Car: for When You Need to Split

Banana Car: for When You Need to Split
Check out this car that looks like a giant banana on wheels. It’s like Mario Kart came to life on the road, but instead of throwing bananas, you can drive one instead. This strange vehicle was spotted on the road by Redditor tkw97 in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina

Four-Wheeler + Jetski = Quadski

Four-Wheeler + Jetski = Quadski
I think like most people who grew up watching James Bond hoon that white Lotus Esprit around Greece and then drive it directly into and out of the ocean where it became a submarine, I’ve always wanted an amphibious vehicle.

Aerofex Hover Bike Brings Return of the Jedi’s Speeder Bikes to Life

Aerofex Hover Bike Brings Return of the Jedi’s Speeder Bikes to Life
I have dreamed about owning a Landspeeder or a Speeder bike for ages. Now it looks like these vehicles might finally be becoming a reality thanks to a California-based company called Aerofex, which is using a similar hovering design in their vehicles.

Make Your Own Hovercraft, Perhaps One Day Rule the World

Make Your Own Hovercraft, Perhaps One Day Rule the World
Here’s something fun that you can do over the weekend. Build your own hovercraft. It’s every geek’s dream to build a real working hovercraft and with a little help from Mythbusters’ Adam Savage, you can build a floating machine and laugh maniacally as you make plans to one day rule the world.

Lit Motors C-1: Electric Scooter with a Roof?

Lit Motors C-1: Electric Scooter with a Roof?
I’ll admit that if you live in Asia, cars aren’t very convenient, though the trend for super-minis is starting to catch on in Europe and slowly in North America. This prototype vehicle takes things a bit further by taking away a couple of wheels and using gyroscopic stabilization so that it remains upright.

BRD RedShift Electric Motorcycles: Eco-Friendly and Look Good Doing It

BRD RedShift Electric Motorcycles: Eco-Friendly and Look Good Doing It
Motocross bikes are notoriously horrible for the environment, with their tiny two-stroke engines, they spew forth tons of Carbon Monoxide. And while many bikes have more environmentally-friendly four-stroke engines, they still have some emissions. But now riders have a choice to be a little more green when they head to the hills, thanks to the BRD RedShift.

Sand Flea Robot Can Jump 30 Feet in the Air

Sand Flea Robot Can Jump 30 Feet in the Air
If anyone has a shot at being the real life Cyberdyne Systems, I think it’s Boston Dynamics. Between their Big Dog, Alpha Dog, Cheetah and other walking robots, they’re building some of the most incredible robotic creatures out there.

Denver Zoo Has a Truck Powered by Poo

Denver Zoo Has a Truck Powered by Poo
If there’s one thing that a zoo has in an abundance, it’s poop. You only have to wonder to the elephant or rhinoceros enclosures to see the mass quantities of poo zoo animals can produce. The Denver Zoo has a very cool way to deal with some of the poop its animals produce.

Invisible Mercedes Minivan Needs a Higher Resolution Display

Invisible Mercedes Minivan Needs a Higher Resolution Display
If there’s one thing that the Internet has forced companies to do is to get a little more creative with their marketing. Instead of crappy old TV commercials, vendors are vying for our attention with publicity stunts they hope will go viral online.

Self-Balancing Unicycle Version 2.0 Keeps You Upright up to 12 Miles

Self-Balancing Unicycle Version 2.0 Keeps You Upright up to 12 Miles
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.

Boxx Electric Bike is as Small as Basic Transportation Gets

Boxx Electric Bike is as Small as Basic Transportation Gets
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.

Megacity Aviation Personal Aircraft Perfect for Flying on Pandora

Megacity Aviation Personal Aircraft Perfect for Flying on Pandora
Clearly, the dude that designed this flying rotorcraft has been watching some Avatar. This helicopter style device has the duel rotors on top that are surrounded by fan-like rings that the movie’s flying machines sported. It also reminds me somewhat of a refined version of that M.A.S.K.

Military Humvees Go for Hybrid Power

Military Humvees Go for Hybrid Power
The world has gone hybrid crazy it seems. The hybrid makes a lot of sense in that you can reduce the amount of fuel you use and save a bit at the pump. They also make less pollution we all have to breathe as well.

Ferrari-Powered Four-Wheeler Straps 250HP to Your Butt

Ferrari-Powered Four-Wheeler Straps 250HP to Your Butt
This may be the coolest four-wheeler in the history of four-wheelers. It’s Ferrari red, has a 6-speed transmission from a BMW M3, and a 250hp Ferrari 3.0L V8 engine inside the body work. It looks more like a three-wheeler, but if you look closely, you can see that the thing has two rear wheels.

Rinspeed Dock + Go Makes Mini-Cars More Useful

Rinspeed Dock + Go Makes Mini-Cars More Useful
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.

Honda Motor Compo Scooter Screams “I’m Geekier Than You, Segway Guy!”

Honda Motor Compo Scooter Screams “I’m Geekier Than You, Segway Guy!”
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.
