    Strand Craft V8 Wet Rod: So, This Is What A Luxury Jet Ski Looks Like

    The Strand Craft V8 Wet Rod is a luxury personal watercraft.  You know, like a Rolls Royce of jet skis.  Like the car, it lets you show off ostentatious wealth without having to say a word.  Which is why it’s a little disappointing the thing can’t be driven by a chauffeur. Designed to look more elegant than sporty, the watercraft will definitely make an imposing presence in any beach, setting itself apart from all the sporty Yamahas and Skii-doos riding [...]

    Bounce Below Lets You Play On Giant Trampolines Inside An Abandoned Cave

    Exploring caves?  Lots of fun.  Bouncing on trampolines?  Even more fun.  While we don’t know if combining them doubles the fun, that’s exactly what they did with Bounce Below, the newest attraction at UK’s Zip World Titan theme park. Described as “the first subterranean playground of its kind,” it consists of a series of giant trampolines that stretch across the expanse of an underground cave.  Like regular trampolines, you can bounce around over and over until you’re dizzy.  Except you [...]

A miniature elliptical trainer, it slips right under your desk for use while sitting down.  Place your feet on the footpads then start kicking forward and back in a motion similar to a regular elliptical machine.   That’s it [...]

  • Quadski XL: The Half-Jetski, Half-Quadcycle Can Now Ride Two People At A Time

    Quadski XL: The Half-Jetski, Half-Quadcycle Can Now Ride Two People At A Time

    We’re huge fans of the Quadski and its double-duty talents, ripping through bodies of water as capably as it does on rugged terrains.  Except it only had enough space to sit one, which ruled out meeting a girl at the beach and spending the day impressing her with your amphibious driving skills.  Not the case with the new Quadski XL, a two-seater version of the versatile recreational ride. Like its single-seat brother, the vehicle can transform from ATV to watercraft [...]

    ZR Hoverboard: It’s Not The Flying Skateboard We Asked For, But We’ll Take It

    When I read someone made a hoverboard, I really thought our Back to the Future dreams are finally realized. Then I found out it wasn’t. And I was sad. But then I checked out the ZR Hoverboard and I wasn’t sad anymore. Total want! You know those hydro jetpacks that are attached to a jet ski’s propulsion then mounted on your body so you can fly over a body of water like a superhero? Well, this is the same thing. Except instead [...]

    An entertaining twist on the classic table tennis game, the Ping Meets Pong Table features a round tabletop with a spinning net that adds an extra dimension of chaos to the proceedings. We’re not exactly sure how to update the rules with a spinning net in the mix, but we’re confident half the fun will involve coming up with a ruleset on your own.

    PowerSpurz Are Visibility Lights For Nighttime Runners

    While nighttime joggers aren’t quite in the same level of danger as nighttime cyclists, there are still some situations where you will want to be easily seen. Like when you’re crossing an intersection, running on a sidewalk infested with rowdy skateboard kids, or decide to run on a badly-lit bike path because you like living on the edge. Or something like that. Whichever of those situations you find yourself in, these PowerSpurz will keep you easily visible during walks and runs. A [...]

    Verrado Brings Motorized Drift Triking To Flat Grounds

    Drift triking, which has become a recognized sport (at least in New Zealand, where it originated), has been growing in popularity over the years, finding enthusiasts taking their slippery rear wheels to the hillsides and counter-steering the loss of traction when negotiating corners.  (Infact, we have been building our electric drift trike in the garage and would be posting a complete write up soon) Problem is, unless you live around sloping roads and hillsides, it’s a pretty inaccessible sport.  That’s [...]

The Rip Curl Search GPS Watch is the latest to drift ashore, adding metrics and data analysis to every surfer’s arsenal of tricks.

    X9 Follow Golf Trolley Trails You Around The Course Autonomously, Won’t Shoot Lasers At Opponents Though

    Like other robot caddies, you can have the X9 Follow Golf Trolley carry your golf clubs as you make your way around the course, controlling its movement via a remote. Unlike them, it can function without the remote, autonomously trailing its player, wherever the human overlord decides to go next. Made by Stewart Golf, the automaton doesn’t make cute noises, do adorable robot things, or shoot missiles on your opponents. Heck, it won’t even open an umbrella to help you out when [...]

    Wilson Smart Basketball Lets You Build A Shot Chart Of Your Game

    We’ve seen efforts to build a consumer-grade basketball that tracks on-court performance before.  If you want something like this to go mainstream, though, you’ll need a big name who can produce basketballs with onboard monitoring tech at scale.  And it looks like that’s what we’re getting with the Wilson Smart Basketball. A collaboration between the sports equipment manufacturer and Finnish AI company SportIQ, the ball comes with integrated electronics that can track your location on court, as well as whether [...]

    Learning a new skateboard trick entails a lot of trial and error, usually accompanied with a heaping of scrapes and the occasional broken bone.  That’s just how it’s always been.  But who says it has to be that way going forward?  Definitely not the guys behind SkaterTrainer. A tool that makes learning new skate tricks simpler and safer, it attaches to the board’s wheels, keeping it from moving before and after performing a trick.  Basically, it lets you practice kickflips, [...]

    BomBoard Is A Compact, Modular And Affordable Jet Ski

    Jet skis are awesome, but, darn it, they’re expensive as heck.  While there are some affordable options out there, we really haven’t seen one that’s as light on the bank account as the BomBoard. Described as “the world’s most affordable, high performance personal watercraft,” it’s slated to retail for under $3,495 — around half of what you’d expect to pay for most entry-level jet skis in the market.  It’s also smaller than your typical jet ski — a big factor [...]

    Life is so much easier when machines do our hard work.  It’s why we taught robots to clean the house.  It’s why we put electric motors in our bicycles and skateboards.  And it’s why somebody built Electrafin, a motorized drive for kayaks, paddleboards, and longboards. Made by Current Drives, it’s an electric motor conversion kit designed to quickly install on existing gear, letting you enjoy a leisurely cruise without having to swing a paddle the entire duration.  No more tired [...]

    Someone Built A 3D-Printed Kayak And It’s Awesome

    Who says you can only build small toys and little trinkets with the current crop of desktop 3D printers?  Certainly not this dude, who built the World’s First 3D Printed Kayak. No, it’s not a toy kayak that can only ride around in pools and bathtubs.  Instead, it’s a fully-functional paddle boat that you can use along real bodies of water.  Just pick up a kayak paddle, hit the beach, and you’re good to go. Heck, the kayak even has [...]
