If you decided to take the design dynamics of a speedboat mixed with a fancy Japanese toilet and apply them to an electric vehicle, you just might get something as oddly futuristic looking as the Sim-Lei car.
Nothing screams future like an automated pod transportation system. These little vehicles have been helping passengers get around Heathrow airport since April of last year, and they've been so successful that India is buying a huge new system to help tourists and pilgrims to visit a temple in Amritsar.
Some guys just need a hobby. Qu Zhibo from China's Sichuan Province is one of those guys — he's spent the last three years cobbling together a miniature vehicle that is dubbed a "knock off " Hummer. Amazingly he only spent about 4,000 yuan ($600 USD) to do it.
Just about a decade ago, Dean Kamen introduced the Segway, a vehicle that some said would change the way cities were built. Well that didn't happen, but in the meantime, a student at MIT caught up with Kamen with his own self-balancing vehicle.
We love water toys with interesting propulsion systems, and the new MIG 675 cruiser will certainly fit the bill. It will reportedly produce its own fuel by using an onboard generator to harvest hydrogen directly from the seawater itself.
As much as we liked the Chevy Volt, it's only really efficient when it's running on electricity. When you kick the gas engine in as a middleman, it gets much less eco-friendly, but a new type of fuel cell is able to convert gas into electricity. And it's tiny.
I'm no expert, but something tells me this car crash that took out eight Ferraris, three Mercedes Benzes, a Lamborghini Diablo, a Nissan GT-R and a Toyota Prius worth a combined total of $4 million is going down in history as one of the best worst crashes ever. Just look at all that damage!
When I drive, I barely even hit 60 MPH, but that's alright, I live my fast and furious life through racing viddy games. Now I can start burning rubber at 100 MPH with this 27-inch R/C sports car without worrying about needing expensive car insurance. Yeah, baby!
Japan kind of lost a bit of its tech mojo with the whole robots failing to save Fukushima thing, but this...this is amazing! The Honda Micro Commuter concept car actually merges your smart phone with your car.
Unless you drive a tank (in which case you should offer to give me rides to work), no matter how obsessive you are about your car there's always gonna be one thing that you have no control over: flat tires. We've been using air-filled tires for like 150 years and at times they totally blow, so isn't it time for something better? Bridgestone thinks so.
