    Hoyt Carbon Matrix, An Ultra-Light, Extra-Powerful Bow

    Because you never know when you’ll be kidnapped and dropped off in another planet to be hunted by Predators, it pays to have a weapon nearby.  While guns are always awesome, you’ll be better off hauling killing machines with reusable ammunition (you don’t know how many of them single-minded aliens you have to kill, after all).  The Hoyt Carbon Matrix, a seriously scary-looking bow, should be right up for your consideration. Hoyt loads up on the hyperbole and calls it […]

  • Rolls Rolls Woody Skateboard Uses Clever, High-Speed Design

    Rolls Rolls Woody Skateboard Uses Clever, High-Speed Design

    The carbon fiber Rolls Rolls Sporter has held the long distance skateboarding record for the last seven years.  This year, they took the same high-performance design into new boards called Woody, which trade the carbon-fiber platforms for stylish decks carved out of wood. A recipient of 2010’s Red Dot Award for product design, the foot-propelled board curves in unusual ways, resulting in an odd shape that drastically lowers its center of gravity.  Aside from improving speed, the low profile minimizes […]

    Weed Whacking Golf Driver Lets You Cheat At Golf

    You take a swing, the ball flies and it lands on thick grass.  Just your luck – it looks like you’re paying for the evening’s round of drinks again.  Or maybe not with the Weed Whacking Golf Driver, an innocent-looking club that sneakily hides a built-in grass trimmer. At a glance, it looks like a regular driver that’s slightly oversized.  We doubt anyone will even pay it any mind while you take it out of your golf bag and take […]

    TST-14J BonusJet Sailplane Self-Launches Using A Retractable Jet

    Self-launching glider aircrafts aren’t new.  However, most of them either use a small piston engine or an electric motor.  Desert Aerospace, on the other hand, dispenses with those pedestrian solutions, outfitting their high-performance glider, the  TST-14J BonusJet, with a retractable jet engine. Granted, this isn’t the first time somebody used a jet on a glider.  So far, though, it’s all been hobby builds, with the small New Mexico company being the first to indicate their intent to distribute one commercially.

    HXC Wheelchair Brings Extreme Stunts To Mobility-Impaired Athletes

    Wheelchairs and skate parks seem like such a natural pairing.  One’s got wheels, the other has terrains built for wheels to go wild on.  Problem is, traditional wheelchairs aren’t designed for extreme stunts.  So what’s a mobility-impaired, adrenaline-junkie to do? If the HXC Wheelchair ever makes it to production, we’ll finally have the answer.  Modeled after sport bikes, the occupant-propelled chair not only lets you prod along, it allows you a wide range of active movements that turn the mobility […]

  • Landon Donovan’s Goal And The Aftermath

    Landon Donovan’s goal against Algeria seems like a Hollywood storyline and I won’t be surprised if a movie comes of this. This is an amazing compilation of various videos submitted on YouTube to the reactions this goal generated. I think what makes this goal even amazing is the initial heartbreak as everyone thought goalie stopped the ball but whats amazing was that Donovan never stopped running and kicked it in after the goalie deflected the ball. Video is after the […]

    Transparent Canoe Lets You Watch Underwater Scenes While You Paddle

    If Wonder Woman had an invisible boat to go with her invisible plane and they had to draw it in a comic book, it will probably look like the Transparent Canoe, a bona fide water vessel wrapped in a see-thru hull. Why would anyone want a clear-bodied skiff?  According to its manufacturer, Colorado-based See Through Canoe, so you can “see the world below you with remarkable clarity.”  From the looks of it, someone with poor eyesight watching from afar will […]

    Want to make foosball feel more like a real football game?  Nike just showed us how to do it with the 11 vs 11, a supersized foosball table intended for play by up to 22  participants.  Just like in a real soccer…errr…football field. Custom-built for the opening of Nike Stadium Milan, the gaming table takes a long stretch of floor space in the store.   While I’m not sure if eleven people really can stand hip to hip on one side […]

    Manta Saddle Eliminates “Numb Bum,” Offers Recumbent-Like Comfort

    It looks more like the skeletal remains of any random vertebrate, but the Manta is actually a bicycle seat. More than sporting an unconventional design, it’s supposed to spare your rear end from the numbing effect of sitting in a bicycle saddle for extended periods of time. Unfortunately for long-term cyclists, a case of “numb bum” is the least of your concerns. Instances of neural damage caused by heavy cycling activity isn’t unprecedented, after all. The rib cage-like design of […]

    Transportation’s been heading green the last couple of years now. Silveira is about to take jet skis down the same path with the Green Samba, a next-generation personal watercraft (abbreviated as PWC, which is the technical name, by the way, since Jet Ski is a Kawasaki trademark) that eliminates toxic emissions by running on electric power, all while providing the same exciting performance of its gas-powered counterparts.

    Adidas F50 Adizero, World’s Lightest Soccer Shoes

    Not being big soccer fans (or football just to cover all the continents), we’re not sure just how much performance enhancements lighter shoes will do for players. But the new Adidas F50 Adizero, now the world’s lightest soccer shoes, has shaved down the weight for the footwear so much that it’s impossible not to make a difference. Typical soccer shoes weigh around 10 ounces. The new Adidas football wear, on the other hand, tips the scale at 5.8 ounces. That’s […]

    I never really liked Swiss Army knives.

That’s why job-specific multi-tools, like the Crank Brothers Multi-Bicycle Tool might change my mind. Packed with 19 different tools that you can use to fix your bicycle […]
