With so many campers/camper trailers going around, you hardly find anyone wanting to build one, but that’s not to say nobody does it. In fact, occasionally you will find home-built gem like the Atomic Camper, but have you seen one a functional caravan built entirely out of LEGO bricks? Well, if you haven’t, now you have because the LEGO Brick Caravan, constructed by UK-based professional LEGO builder Bright Bricks (the same folks who was responsible for the awesome Rolls-Royce engine from a few years ago), you see here is the world’s first and set the record as the Largest Caravan Built with Interlocking Plastic Bricks back in 2015.

After a two-year delay, the world’s very first mech battle is finally happening. The original plan for a showdown between U.S. MegaBots and Japan’s Suidobashi Heavy Industry big-ass mech, Kuratas in 2015 had reportedly fell through due to “venue problems.” Two years on, it looks like the duel is going to happen, but this time, the location will not be disclosed to avoid any chance of the event being soured again, or so we read. For the uninitiated, Kuratas is the first MechWarrior-like robotic suit designed and built by Japan’s Suidobashi Heavy Industry. Continue reading U.S. Versus Japan World’s First Mech Robot Battle Is Finally Happening!
Human’s fantasy of flight never cease since before the Wright Brothers. Now that we have realized flying, mankind is looking toying with other ways to take flight. Wait, what? You mean there are other ways to flying other than an aeroplane? Of course, there are. Why ‘are’? Because besides the various audacious plans like Martin Jetpack, Zapata Flyboard – just to name a couple – some people relish the thought of flying like Tony Stark AKA Iron Man. Popular YouTube Hacksmith was one of them, but nothing come close to what British entrepreneur Richard M. Browning has achieved so far. Call him crazy or whatever, this ambitious soul took to his garage to developed a real-life “Iron Man” flying suit which actually works, well, kind of. Continue reading Man Took “Flight” Like Iron Man With Tiny Jet Engines Strapped To Him
The things that madcap British garage inventor, Colin Furze, built certainly are ridiculous enough to quality them a place on the Guinness World Records and he certainly got recognized for some of the works, including the largest bonfire (2006), the longest motorcycle (2008), the fastest speed on a mobility scooter (2010), the fastest pram (2012), and now, he can add world’s fastest bumper car to his growing accolades. The BBC Worldwide sponsored bumper car, AKA dodgem, has made the run with Top Gear’s The Stig behind the wheel (or should we say, handlebar?) and in the process, setting the record of the world’s fastest bumper car. Continue reading it’s Official. Colin Furze Has Just Build The World’s Fastest Bumper Car
British mad garage inventor, Colin Furze, strikes again and this time, he was asked by BBC to build The Stig, the anonymous race car driver from BBC television series Top Gear, a new ride. According to BBC The Stig loves it when the slow is made to go fast which is pretty much the Colin’s speciality. In response to this request, Furze set out to procure a 1960s dodgem AKA bumper car and proceed to turn it into anything but an electricity-driven flat ride. The reborn bumper car is given a set of go-kart wheels and at its heart, it has a 100BHP 600cc 4-cylinder motor pulled from a Honda sports bike. Already, you know it is going to be an insane ride, don’t you? Continue reading Watch Colin Furze Turn A Bumper Car Into A 600cc 100BHP Monster
Just as we read about the remake of John Carpenter’s dystopia cult classic Escape from New York (or rather, a prequel, according to MovieWeb), we saw this: Bozena Riot vehicle from Bozena Security Systems. Rather ominous, don’t you think? Anyways, just in case the future turns out to be all messed up, Bozena Security Systems’ Riot vehicle will be ready to take on the violent protestors. Bozena Riot is essentially a compact wheel loader souped with armor and equipped with a 3-ton extending (horizontally and vertically) armored barrier which kind of makes it a bulldozer for shuffling humans into submission and also to protect the riot control officers as they suppress the angry mob with lethal or non-lethal weapons through the six available launch ports. Continue reading This Armored Riot Control Vehicle From Europe Is Futuristically Dystopia
I am excited about a lot of things and usually when I do get excited, I will proceed to write a shit load of good stuff about it, but today, I found myself left speechless by the Bruder EXP-6 Expedition Camper Trailer. I am thrilled by a camper trailer. Imagine that. I am not going to lie; as I was writing this, I secretly wish I can have one even though the place that I reside has no room for such awesomeness. Ok. I admit. I am excited and sad at the same time. Continue reading Bruder EXP-6 Is Probably The Craziest Camper Trailer We Have Seen
Billed as the world’s most portable electric scooter, the GoTube Super Portable Electric Scooter by Hong Kong-based East Go does not even look remotely like an electric scooter when folded down. In fact, this 12.8 lbs (5.8 kg) new kid in the electric mobility looks more like a yoga mat when kept inside the included hardshell sling case. Its ridiculous lightweight is afforded by a mostly aluminum construction with a generous use of carbon fiber, and while it may measures a tiny 74.3 x 13.7 cm (29.3 by 5.4 inches) when collapsed, and 74.2 x 41.5 cm (29.3 x 36.5 inches) when deployed, it is totally capable of taking a person of weight up to 150 kg (330 lbs). Continue reading Mind-blown: These Tubes Are Actually Folded Down Electric Scooters!
So, you have a bunch of exotic rides stashed in the barn-turned-garage at your ranch? Nice. But you can’t really take those darlings through the rough of the ranch’s sometimes rather unforgiving terrains, do you? You could bag yourself a Land Rover to do that sort of things, but is a Land Rover a name in exotic rides? No, but this 1955 Lamborghini DL25 Tractor from Lamborghini Trattori surely is. Okay. It is not quite an exotic you expect, but it is the legit cousin of the Miuras and Countachs, and so, it is totally a Lamborghini. Wait, what? Yep. Lamborghini makes tractor and it was the marque’s bread and butter before it was known for its flamboyant supercars and that kind makes it kind of a fitting ride on your lovely ranch, doesn’t it? Continue reading Rare, Working Lamborghini Tractor From 1955 Can Be Yours For $37K
In mountainous regions like the Colombia’s Andes Region, folks still uses mule to haul goods not because they choose to, but because the treacherous terrains dictate that only animals are up to the task. While it seems like it will remain so for years to come, Italy-based Colombian designer Edgar Sarmiento (AKA Eddie Mauro, the same person who designed autonomous bus Olli) dream up a modern day mule, a mechanical transport which he calls Arriero Rural Transportation Solution, as an alternative to mules and horses.
