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.

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

With Stark Mobility’s Electric Skateboard, You Are The Remote

Electric skateboard is a norm today, but 99.9 percent of them requires the use of a remote, or an app for control. Now, lets take a step back and think about it: do we really need that (the remote)? Well, Germany company Stark Mobility (no relation to the fictional Stark Industries) certainly did not think so. Armed with this resolution in mind, the company set out to create StarkBoard, the world’s first electric skateboard that leverages intelligent weight and motion tracking to put controls in your hands, or lower torso, to be precise. In other words, you are the remote. Continue reading With Stark Mobility’s Electric Skateboard, You Are The Remote

Honda’s Cute Robot Vehicle Is Basically Your Autonomous Food Truck

Autonomous cart isn’t new, but the one Honda recently showed off, called RoboCas Concept, at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show is worthy of a mention, just for the cuteness alone. Honda refers RoboCas Concept to as “a unique form of electric mobility,” but it really is a smart cart. It looks like vehicle straight out of Pixar animation. It has a cargo space which is customizable as you see fit and oh, yes, it can carry people too. You know, it ain’t tiny as you can see from the images we have here. It can be everything you imagine it to be, ranging from a cargo hauler to mobile DJ console to a curry shop. Yep. That too. In short, it can be a food truck of sort.

This Is Manta5, A Pedal-Assist Bicycle For The Water

If you love cycling, then you really shouldn’t let any waterbody stop your love for pedaling. Obviously, a regular bicycle can’t let you pedal on water and therefore, if you really want to continuing cycling on water, well then, you have to look to the Manta5 Hydrofoiler XE-1 Hydrofoil Bike. Also quite obviously, pedaling on water takes a lot more effort than it is on land, more so if you are expect to ride the waves hydrofoil technology has to offer and hence, Hydrofoiler XE-1 is actually a pedal-assist watercraft. So, yeah. Hydrofoiler XE-1 is basically the answer to pedal-assist bike for water. Absolutely brilliant. I think that’s one of the things missing from my life. Continue reading This Is Manta5, A Pedal-Assist Bicycle For The Water

Airstream Globetrotter Is An American Icon With An European Inside

Airstream and its signature riveted aluminum paneled camper trailers are unmistakably American. The thought of Airstream conjures up images of roller skates, drive-in burger places and kids eager to do some footloose out in the open car park, to the music turned out by small portable FM tuner-equipped cassette player. So, the question now is, can this American icon tweaked to offer the European luxury vibe? Well, apparently, it can – thanks to the magical touches lent to it by multidisciplinary design consultancy, Astheimer Limited and Globetrotter is the result. Continue reading Airstream Globetrotter Is An American Icon With An European Inside
