    Meet Moosshiqk, The World’s Smallest Electric Bike

    You thought your monkey bike is small?  You might have to rethink your definition of small with the Moosshiqk (which happens to be Sanskrit for “mouse”), the world’s tiniest electric bike. How tiny is it?  Let’s just say it’s small enough to fit in your laptop bag after you ride it to work.  Yep, it’s apparently the easiest way to save on parking fees too.  It’s so small it looks nothing more like a remote-controlled toy.  Surprisingly enough, it can [...]

    T-Rex-14RR-Is-Part-Motorcycle, Part-Formula Racer And Completely Awesome

    Bringing an unusual combo of frightening speed, future-worthy looks and three wheels, the 2010 Campagna T-Rex 14RR deserves to be on every thrillseeker’s wish list.  We’re not exactly sure what it is – Campagna calls it a “pavement predator” while the Department of Transportation calls it a motorcycle.  Official names don’t matter, though – you can tell it’s one blisteringly decadent ride. Clad in a reverse trike-style frame, the T-Rex looks like the unholy union of a supercar and a [...]

    Bloom Energy Shows Off Their Bloom Box Fuel Cell Power Generators

    After being featured on 60 Minutes, the entire world is abuzz with Bloom Energy once again.  Nearly forgotten due to a lack of recent press, the alternative energy company’s current spate of publicity is sure to light a fire in water-cooler discussions over the next few months. Why is it such a big deal?  Bloom Energy produces fuel cell boxes that, when combined with an energy source (such as natural gas), can produce usable electricity.  See those two boxes founder [...]

    Enjoy The Amazon Piranhas And Anacondas In Luxurious Comfort

    The Amazon is a pretty cool and gnarly place at the same time.  It’s got piranhas, giant anacondas (well, they do in the movies) and other scary creatures to complement the striking walls of green surrounding the river.  Simply put, it’s one awesome way to get a break from your humdrum existence. If you’re going to hit Peru’s Amazon River, you may as well do it in style, right?  Aqua Expeditions’ cruise aboard the M/V Aqua seems to offer just [...]

    Drivemocion LED Car Sign Makes Middle Finger Obsolete

    During a fit of road rage, seeing middle fingers flying left and right is nothing new.  Other than that obvious sign of adulation (apparently, it means “You’re number #1″), though, it’s hard to communicate what you really want to say while driving in a busy highway. The Drivemocion LED Car Sign saves you from that inability, allowing you to send crystal-clear, unclouded messages to other drivers on the road.  Want to apologize for cutting someone inadvertently?  Choose the SORRY signal, [...]

    Tamiya Commissions A Real-Life Sand Scorcher Buggy

    Remote controlled cars modeled after real-life special editions are nothing new.  This life-size Tamiya Sand Scorcher, however, turns the table around on the iconic RC kit, copying the 1/10th scale model in detail to produce a blown-up version. We’re not sure if you’re too young to remember the Sand Scorcher, but it was easily one of Tamiya’s most popular kits.  Boasting components built almost entirely out of metal and a suspension based on a real Volkswagen Beetle, it was one [...]

    Zingy Is A Super Safe Two-Person Boat That’s Cute As A Button

    Unlike cars or gadgets, boats aren’t exactly something most regular folks think about buying.  Inventor Clayton Turney wants to change all that with the Zingy, a sea-capable, two-person boat that prides itself on accessibility. Designed for novice boaters, it looks nothing more than a toy at first glance (like a real boat with the rest of its body hacked off).  Don’t let the harmless appearance fool you.  While small, it boasts excellent sea-keeping abilities, described as a “super safe, super [...]

    Aspiral Clock Puts Time On A Dizzying Spiral

    Want a clock that can hypnotize you?  We’re not sure how well the Aspiral Clock can put you in a trance, but its swirly face looks like it can leave you dizzy if you stare intently while it’s moving fast. Yes, it’s supposed to be a clock.  Don’t worry, it won’t require Tokyoflash-level nerdery to read the time.  In fact, the mechanism is rather straightforward – the ball pops out at 12, then moves its way through the succeeding hours [...]

    GMax, The Toilet Bowl Transformer

    Some Transformer robots got lucky.  They can morph into trucks, cars, planes and other sorts of cool stuff.   Looking at the GMax, you can’t help but feel that the poor little bastard got a raw deal – he turns into a toilet.  Yikes. While other robots busy themselves dishing out lasers and missiles, this unfortunate robot takes crap.  Literally.  In fairness, he’s not really a part of the official Transformers.  The poor sap is actually a promotional toy figure from [...]

    Launching Of Crayola Rockets In The Desert Doesn’t Create A Rainbow – Boooo

    As it turns out, firing crayons into the air at the same time doesn’t create a rainbow.  My first-grade teacher so totally lied.  But it does make for one delicious looking spectacle, as evidenced by the photos of John Coker’s Crayola Rocket Pack, which he recently launched in the Nevada desert. Launching rockets isn’t anything special.  Every engineering geek worth the eye mucus in his glasses has probably fired one.  When you take the time to make your rockets look [...]

    Leveraged Freedom Chair Is A Wheelchair For The Off-Road

    Wheelchairs are awesome for giving mobility to the people who can’t use their legs .  In many places where the ground isn’t necessarily as smooth and flat as your driveway, though, they’re practically impossible to use.   The new Leveraged Freedom Chair seeks to solve just that, providing a comfortable chair that can run as well on mud and rocks, as it does on regular roads. Invented by MIT PhD candidate (for mechanical engineering) Amos Winter, the chair is described as [...]

    Metaltech Anti-Terrorist Assault Cart: An Armored Cart For Close-Quarters Combat

    RPG-proof armored trucks are cool.  When you’re fighting in narrow alleys and closed spaces, though, they’re practically of no use.  That’s where the Metaltech Anti-Terrorist Assault Cart comes in.  You’re not hearing it wrong – it’s literally a cart armored up for battle. Created by Indian firm Metaltech Motor Bodies Pvt Ltd, the vehicle was built in the wake of 2008′s Mumbai attacks, where gunmen holed up in two luxury hotels managed to keep government forces at bay for 60 [...]

    FireScuba Is A Portable Smoke Filter In The Shape Of A Pouch Of French Fries

    Contrary to how it may look like, the photo above isn’t about people sniffing french fries pouches.   Instead, the FireScuba is a concept safety mask that will allow you to breathe through thick smoke during a fire. Just like a smoke hood, the protective device filters what you inhale, protecting you from the possible ramifications of smoke inhalation.  Given that the design isn’t airtight, it’s not likely to be as effective as the former.  Still, in precarious situations, even the [...]
