Gibbs Technology, makers of the amphibious car piloted across the English Channel by Richard Bronson, has created the Quadski, a four-wheeler that converts to a jet ski in less than 5 seconds. Able to travel at speeds up to 50 mph on both land and sea, the Quadski has wheels that fold up into its body at the flip of a switch, much like Optimus Prime transforming into an 18-wheeler. Purported to be a vehicle designed for rescue operations, the Quadski nonetheless looks like a hell of a lot of fun to drive around when not performing Baywatch-like duties. Unfortunately, Gibbs Technology is a design and research firm, not a manufacturer, so another company would need to license the design in order for it to go into production.
