Ground-Effect Trains Floats on Air

Ground-Effect Trains Floats on Air
I think the coolest method of transportation in Asia and parts of Europe are the crazy fast bullet trains that blaze around those countries. Researchers in Japan are working on a new method of transportation that may one day replace those trains and go even faster.

DTV Shredder ATV: Jet-Ski for Land

DTV Shredder ATV: Jet-Ski for Land
This off-road vehicle looks kind of like a jet ski for land. It has two independently-powered caterpillar tracks, that make it look like a personal battle tank. The DTV Shredder can fly over almost any kind of terrain.

MMOV Takes Projection Mapping on the Road

MMOV Takes Projection Mapping on the Road
For those of you unfamiliar with projection mapping, it’s a really cool visual technique used to combine the surfaces of real-world structures with projected images to create mind-blowing visual effects. Typically, these light shows require complex manual setups of projection gear to get the effect right, but the guys over at Visual Drugstore built out a mobile rig for projection-mapping.

Chevy Orlando Play-Doh Edition: Weighs As Much As the Real Thing

Chevy Orlando Play-Doh Edition: Weighs As Much As the Real Thing
I haven’t played with Play-Doh in years, but that didn’t stop Chevy from promoting their new Orlando MPV on the streets of London this week by making a 1:1 scale model out of the popular modeling clay.

Electric VeloMini Bike: Green and Geeky

Electric VeloMini Bike: Green and Geeky
If you are the sort that has to commute a relatively long distance each day, but you want to do that commute with a small and green bike you don’t have to pedal, the VeloMini could be just the ticket.

DeskPets RC Tank Controlled by iPhone

DeskPets RC Tank Controlled by iPhone
I think one of the coolest gadgets that has ever launched to go along with the iPhone is the AR.Drone flying machine. That thing is really cool, but so expensive that I will never buy one.

GM EN-V Goes for a Spin at CES

GM EN-V Goes for a Spin at CES
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.

Kyosho J-Kart R/C Car Drives, then Flies

Kyosho J-Kart R/C Car Drives, then Flies
I’ve seen plenty of remote-controlled cars and helicopters over the years, but I can honestly say this is the first one that I’ve seen that starts out driving on the ground, then instantly takes to the air.

The Scooterputer: The Casemod That Actually Drives

The Scooterputer: The Casemod That Actually Drives
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.

Mission Motors Shows Off Fast and Awesome Electric Mission R Motorcycle
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.

Mega Hurtz Tactical Robot Means Business

Mega Hurtz Tactical Robot Means Business
Most of the time when I think of robots, I think of tame little droids like R2-D2 and Asimo. But this robot-on-wheels means serious business. Created by Chris Rogers of Inspector Bots, the Mega Hurtz Tactical Robot is an seriously amped-up robotic vehicle, with enough torque to pull a 4700 pound Hummer H3.

Souped-Up Segway Hits Double Speed

Souped-Up Segway Hits Double Speed
For safety’s sake, a Segway tops out at 12.5 miles per hour. While that doesn’t sound that fast, if you’ve ever been on one of these self-balancing contraptions, you know that actually seems mighty fast when it’s just that tiny platform between you, the ground, and those oncoming cars.

Flyrad is the Love Child of Segway and a Unicycle

Flyrad is the Love Child of Segway and a Unicycle
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.

Can Grandma’S Scooter Can Hit 69mph?

Can Grandma’S Scooter Can Hit 69mph?
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.

Toilet Go-Kart: Outboard Outhouse

Toilet Go-Kart: Outboard Outhouse
See Dave. See Dave smile. See Dave ride his toilet cart. See Dave become the envy of geeks everywhere. Dave took a stripped down go-kart and turned it into something special – something that the Shriners with their fancy little hats and their little go-karts would be jealous of at the next parade.

Massively Geeky Concept Bike Will Get You Laughed at

Massively Geeky Concept Bike Will Get You Laughed at
Concepts come in all sorts of varieties. We get the stuff that we all really want to see built and then we get the stuff that’s sort of weird and would surely get us laughed at if it were real.
