JR West Shinkansen Will Sport Hello Kitty Design For This Summer

There is no secret that the mouthless kitty, Hello Kitty, is huge in Japan. Notwithstanding its status as a cartoon character, the pop culture icon has been seen in places outside of cartoon series and prints. Her appearance ranges from hotel to video game to even tires, and now, it is set to appear on Japan’s fastest land transportation system, the Shinkansen, AKA the bullet train, specifically, on the trains plying West Japan Railway Co. (JR West)’s Sanyo Shinkansen Line that connects Osaka and Fukuoka. Altogether, eight 500-series cars will be getting the Kitty treatment.

This Is A Rare Time That We Are Truly Impressed By A Custom Caravan

When it comes to camper trailer, we can’t say we have seen it all, but for the handful we have saw thus far, the Atomic Camper sure left a deep impression in us and now, we can add the Unity Wagon caravan to our list. Created by Steve Areen, this camper trailer is unlike what you have learned about camper trailer. I mean, one look you know this trailer is fun and has the strong commune vibe to it. In other words, it is inviting. Built on stretched, 5 x 10 trailer with a custom steel structure, Unity Wagon is composed mainly of discarded wood sourced from a mill.

Meet DT-30PM, The Russian Amphibious Beast You Never Knew Existed

When it comes to moving through unforgiving terrains, no one knows better than the Russians. The Russian has oversaw the birth of a myriad of ATVs, or all-terrain vehicles, like the Sherp ATV, Avtoros Shaman 8×8 ATV, an even a buoyant bike, the Taurus 2×2 all-terrain motorcycle, and today, we found yet another impressive example called DT-30PM. The DT-30PM Amphibious All-terrain Tracked Carrier Vehicle is the modernized version of the original DT-30 first introduced in 1982. It is a multipurpose carrier developed and built by Russian company Vityaz. Continue reading Meet DT-30PM, The Russian Amphibious Beast You Never Knew Existed

Elon Musk Reveals The Boring Co.’s Plan and Futuristic Urban Loop System

As the dust settles on The Boring Company’s rather prolific product, a flamethrower, Elon Musk lets the world in on the real mission of his latest startup, or should we say, a readjustment of the company’s priorities. Announced via Twitter, the serial tech entrepreneur who has been increasingly obsessed with mass transportation said that The Boring Company will be “prioritizing the construction of a dedicated transport system for cyclists and pedestrians.” Continue reading Elon Musk Reveals The Boring Co.’s Plan and Futuristic Urban Loop System

How Hoverboards Work Not In Back To The Future II

You can thank the the Segway for modern hoverboard scooters. At the time it was groundbreaking technology that allowed people to basically, just stand while moving to another place, like a moving conveyor-belt on wheels. Today, we live in the age of the hoverboard, though our current models have wheels and they don’t really hover. The next phase of the self-balancing scooter will turn us all into Marty McFly from Back To The Future II, surfing the air like a pro.

Howe & Howe Is Back With A Leaner And Meaner Sport Tank Called EV3-F1

What has a 1,500 horses 727 cu-in HEMI engine and is capable of tearing through any terrain with blunt, brute force, leaving behind track marks? Well, it is certainly not a Jeep. Neither is it a Chrysler, or Dodge. In fact, those rides will be deemed tame by what you about to witness here: Ripsaw EV3-F1 Single Seater Super Tank. Now, do not mistaken this with the Ripsaw EV3-F4, which is a four-seater. This baby here is a solo ride and you know what that means. It means you can do whatever the hell you like when you are behind the wheel. And you will want to do whatever the hell you like because, it is the most extreme and most terrain dominant Ripsaw to date. Continue reading Howe & Howe Is Back With A Leaner And Meaner Sport Tank Called EV3-F1

Razor Puts An Electric Motor On To The Jetts And Calls It Turbo Jetts

Before Razor’s spark-kicking Jetts Heel Wheels came on to the market, kids had been zooming down the malls with sneakers embedded with heel wheels. Razor’s solution serves to turn any shoe into heel wheeled kicks without the need to buy a pair of ‘specialized’ sneakers. Apparently, Razor thinks add-on heel wheels aren’t enough. A year on, it came up with another novel version: Jetts with electric motor and it is calling it Turbo Jetts. I am not into this heel wheel thing (obviously), but if I am not wrong, this is the first of its kind. Continue reading Razor Puts An Electric Motor On To The Jetts And Calls It Turbo Jetts

Stoosbahn In Switzerland Is The World’s Steepest Funicular Railway

Staking claim as the world’s steepest funicular railway is the Stoosbahn, a rail transportation system that lies on the steep incline of the picturesque canton of Schwyz, connecting the Hintere Schlattili in the municipality of Schwyz with the village and mountain resort of Stoos, above Morschach in Switzerland. Stretching some 1,738 meters (5,702 feet), this €44.6 million (around US$52 million) mountain tram system will see its unique barrel-like carriages climbing 743 meters (2,438 feet), scaling an incline of 110 percent at 10 meters/second (about 33 feet/second).

Formula 1-Inspired Hoverboard May Just Rekindle Hoverboard’s Popularity

The hoverboard fever pitch may be is over, but we thought the F1 Gyroor Hoverboard may just bring that fever back up. Why? Because it is not just another copycat hoverboard; it is style very distinctively, after the adrenaline pumping, world class race car series Formula 1 race cars. Believe me that when I say it is style after Formula 1 Race Cars, I do mean F1 race cars. Don’t believe? Just look at the board. It does look like the front end of a Formula 1 Race Car, doesn’t it? It is UL 2272 certified, uses LG/Samsung battery cells and passed CE, RoHS and FCC certification, and therefore, you can be sure it is like a Formula 1 race car which won’t go up in flames. Continue reading Formula 1-Inspired Hoverboard May Just Rekindle Hoverboard’s Popularity

Track1 Is A Half-track Skateboard That Wants To Take On Any Terrain

You know what fascinates us with regards to off-road (skate)board? Track(s). If it has track(s), we are already half-sold. Just half. So, naturally, when we first lay eyes on the Track1, we are, well, half-sold. Though we can’t say the same for the price. But more on that later. Seriously, look at this thing. It has oversized wheels wrapped in off-road requisite knobby tires and a wide, low-profile track that makes it perfect for some serious all-terrain actions. And it is not just any track. The track was designed from the ground up for Track1 and it is where the magic is being turned out. Continue reading Track1 Is A Half-track Skateboard That Wants To Take On Any Terrain
