If ever Marty McFly and Doc Brown were to reunite for a sequel to Back to the Future III, the old time traveling DeLorean would need an upgrade of some sort to justify the ticket. How about adding 44-inch tires to a DeLorean and converting it into a monster truck? That'll do!
Just because Doc Brown's future has no roads doesn't mean the dream of a flying car is dead. With flying cars like the Terrafugia, the idea still lives. But, if you absolutely must have yourself a flying car, you can buy this vintage one from the 1950s for over a million bucks.
What's so special about your sofa? It's made out of Italian leather? Waterproof? Great for lazing around to play Xbox 360? It's time to teach your couch some new tricks, because this sofa can probably beat your car in a street race.
The idea of your car being able to read your brain to decide whether you're about to dose off or just need a little driving assistance could become a reality. Nissan's doing research to create a smarter car — one that predicts what you might do next when you're behind the wheel. Hell yeah!
Casey Putsch is one helluva Batman fan. Last week, we reminisced about 14 iconic Batmobiles, but Putsch's turbine-powered Batmobile easily takes the cake as one of the best superhero car mods we've ever seen. Tossing in an iPad as its avionics and GPS systems is just icing and a cherry on top.
The hovercraft is one of the most unappreciated vehicles. You hardly hear about them. Although a hovercraft had a most badass role in Jackie Chan's Rumble in the Bronx, it's never really had the curves to claim the sexy award. On second thought, this futuristic hovercraft concept does.
Did you know that in the 1960s, the U.S. Army worked with General Electric to build a four-legged, human-operated robot walker that could kick Jeeps out of its way and step on light bulbs without completely crushing them into a million shards? Now you do.
Designs for soapbox derby cars have been known to turn some heads, but none have caught and held our attention longer than this X-Wing Fighter. "The Papier Boy's" X-Wing doesn't just look amazing, but it also has a rotatable R2-D2 that's controlled by a re-wired NES controller. The Force is definitely strong with this fighter.
Tank treads on skateboards and tank treads on wheelchairs? We've seen virtually every possible transport ever created, but this jarring Volkswagen bus tank is completely nuts — in a good way.
This week at the at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics in Shanghai, China, a bunch of Japanese researchers led by Yusuke Sugahara at Tohoku University showed off a prototype transport that hovers inches above the ground without maglev rails. To put it into geeky Star Wars speak: this is the Landspeeder you're looking for.
