Bigtrak XTR R/C Truck to Get iPhone, Android Remote Control and More

Bigtrak XTR R/C Truck to Get iPhone, Android Remote Control and More
A while back, you might recall that I told you guys about the return of the Bigtrak programmable vehicle from the 1980s. Well, the guys from Zeon Tech who made the revamped Bigtrak and Bigtrak Jr.

Remote Controlled Steam Trike Runs on Vapors, Driven by Teddy Bear

Remote Controlled Steam Trike Runs on Vapors, Driven by Teddy Bear
Think you’ve got a bad-ass remote-control car? Well despite being painted pink, this three-wheeled R/C monster looks like it could eat most cheap plastic cars for lunch.

Jet-Powered Harley Sold on eBay: Hell Yeah!

Jet-Powered Harley Sold on eBay: Hell Yeah!
This is the ultimate motorcycle if you ask me. I have wanted a jet bike since I was a kid when that Battlestar Galactica TV Movie had Starbuck and Apollo flying around on jet bikes. This jet bike doesn’t fly, but it is something special – a 1929 style Harley with two jet engines.

Bionic Bopper Robot Cars: Real Steel Gets Real

Bionic Bopper Robot Cars: Real Steel Gets Real
If you are rich enough to afford your own battling robots, these Bionic Bopper Cars will be your next purchase. You and a friend can battle with these motorized robots. They allow you to stand inside the protective cage and throw punches like a large game of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots.

Moto Undone: Has Anybody Seen My Motorcycle?

Moto Undone: Has Anybody Seen My Motorcycle?
I used to think that motorcycles were like bicycles that were made for lazy people. They certainly weren’t as roomy or comfortable as a car, that much was obvious, and they definitely require less effort on the part of the rider to keep things moving than a bicycle.

LANDBEARSHARK Motorized Skateboard with Treads: Another Way to Die?

LANDBEARSHARK Motorized Skateboard with Treads: Another Way to Die?
Ever since I first saw motorized skateboards, I always thought that there were a really great way to get around. Now that I’m older and saner, I know for a fact that these contraptions can’t be too safe, especially when you don’t have many ways of slowing down.

Panzer Soundtank Declares War on Ears Everywhere

Panzer Soundtank Declares War on Ears Everywhere
There are sound systems, and then there are monstrous sound systems. This one definitely falls into the latter category. In the words of immortal loud band AC/DC: If you see the SoundTank rolling into your neighborhood, “lock up your daughter, lock up your wife, lock up your back door and run for your life”.

Electric TRON Lightcycle Outed by Parker Brothers

Electric TRON Lightcycle Outed by Parker Brothers
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.

Segway Mates with a Motorcycle, the Ryno Micro-cycle is Born

Segway Mates with a Motorcycle, the Ryno Micro-cycle is Born
Unicycles used to be strictly for clowns in the circus. Occasionally the clown would let a monkey ride one. Those were truly terrifying times. But now anyone can ride one and soon, you’ll be able to ride a unicycle that can hit breakneck speeds of up to 20mph.

Necker Nymph: Rent Your Own Underwater Sea Plane from Sir Richard Branson

Necker Nymph: Rent Your Own Underwater Sea Plane from Sir Richard Branson
It’s well established that Sir Richard Branson is both a geek and one of the richest people on Earth. He owns islands and has spent lots of money on commercializing space flight. Overall, he’s the sort of rich geek I wish I could be.

HAF X Mini Bike Casemod: Log On, then Ride Off

HAF X Mini Bike Casemod: Log On, then Ride Off
I’ve seen a couple of computer mods that look like motorcycles before, and even a scooter computer, but I think this is the best combo of computer and motorized vehicle I’ve seen yet.

Army to Deploy Automated ATVs to Carry Packs and More in the Field

Army to Deploy Automated ATVs to Carry Packs and More in the Field
The closest I have ever come to being in the military would be playing high school football and having to endure the not at all fun two-times-a-day practice in the weeks leading up to the start of school.

Michael Jelinek’s Vehicle Concepts: Are Pod Racers the Future of Transportation?

Michael Jelinek’s Vehicle Concepts: Are Pod Racers the Future of Transportation?
Even though I saw Star Wars Episode I: Phantom Menace a few times, it remains my everyone’s least favorite Star Wars movie. That being said, it had some redeeming qualities, like Darth Maul and the pod racers.

Turbine-Powered Batmobile Hits the Streets

Turbine-Powered Batmobile Hits the Streets
I will admit that while I have seen all of the Batman flicks they have all been crazy cheesy until Christian Bale took over in the recent Christopher Nolan-helmed films. Bale and Nolan took Batman and made it much more real and gritty.

Nevada Passes Legislation Allowing Google’s Driverless Cars to Cruise State Highways

Nevada Passes Legislation Allowing Google’s Driverless Cars to Cruise State Highways
I think you can agree with me, people are generally stupid. Put stupid behind the wheel and you get an idiot driver that will text, eat, and read all while doing 80 MPH down the highway in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

EDWARD, aka Electric Diwheel with Active Rotation Damping (and no Gerbiling)

EDWARD, aka Electric Diwheel with Active Rotation Damping (and no Gerbiling)
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.
