This concept car, from 22 year old Chinese transportation design student Huang Hao, is inspired by Taihu Stones, also known as scholar's stones. These porous, curving rocks can be found in all the best traditional Chinese gardens, and their forms lend themselves surprisingly well to a car designed for young couples in 2046.
First came the water-powered jetpack. Next came the water-powered jetboots. And now, we have the water-powered jetbike. It's Jetaviation's Jetovator, and they want you to "turn off the video games Saddle up and Ride the Hose!" So, go on, ride the hose. Ride it. RIDE IT.
E3 is an industry trade show centered around showcasing the very best video games that'll be coming out in the near future. That doesn't mean the show floor only has video game booths. There's also cars, cosplayers, giant replica mechs, and huge inflatable balloons — and Halo 4's upgraded Warthog vehicle that's just so beautiful.
We've seen some crazy motorcycles based on movie franchises before, but they're usually designed to evoke fear and/or coolness. However, every once in a while, we get something that transcends cool factor and lands squarely in movie geek territory.

One of the coolest scenes in the new Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol film involves Tom Cruise manipulating a map superimposed on the car's windshield. It looked like science fiction but Pioneer just made it a reality.
The only catch to buying this car, other than coming up with the scratch to pay for it, is you are going to have to want to break a record. This highly customized car — called Project Sea Lion — was created for the sole purpose of grabbing the amphibious land speed record. We doubt perspective owners will have a problem with that.
For under $200,000, you could have a stealth fighter-inspired vehicle that reaches 0-62mph in only 3.2 seconds (thanks to Corvette ZR1's supercharged V8 engine). Inside, there's a thermal camera that scans the road — night vision! Check out the video below for the 2013 Arrinera in action.
When this 2004 London taxi pulls up to the curb, you'll see the inside filled with state-of-the-art recording equipment instead of shopping bags and tourists. This unusual, fully functioning mobile recording unit was custom designed for outdoor events and small-space gigs in one of the rare British taxis made to U.S. standards.
