those who have watched Men In Black III would have noticed the pair of awesome futuristic monocycles and you didn’t think it is possible but in fact, in reality there is such monocycle that spins its lone wheel around the rider. well, maybe not as shiny and futuristic looking but somewhere along that line. in fact the Wheelsurf Monocycle, as it is known, have been around for quite sometime now. it is touted as the only monocycle in production (one with such a big wheel, that is) and it lets you cruise around at speeds up to 40 km/h (25 mph) for about two hours with less than 0.5 gallon of petrol.

let’s be honest: we don’t fancy walking as much but driving to our local mall, which is just a stone throw away might not be exactly an eco-friendly mode of transport. agree? a bike would be too cumbersome and risk being snag by some bike thieves. lucky for lazy folks like us, there is electric skateboards like the ZBOARD to take the sores out of our legs. what’s really worth mentioning is, the ZBOARD has no awkward ‘joystick’ to control its throttle but instead, its forward motion and braking are controlled by a pair of pressure sensitive pads, strategically positioned at the front and the rear of the board. all you have to do is hope on board, lean forward to get going and lean back to brake. in effect, it works totally like the traditional kick-your-way-along skateboard but without the extra leg work.

when it comes to furniture, the words ‘World’s Fastest’ hardly come into play, except if your furniture – a couch, in this instant – has an internal combustion engine under the hood, or should i say, under the seat. that’s truly one hot seat that would require you to don a full racing suit, racing shoes, and of course, a helmet when piloting it. especially so when it could hit 101 mph (163.12 km/h). this world record holder for the world’s fastest couch comes complete with a table (and a bowl of fruits to boot), not because of complimenting sake but rather, a necessity to improve its aerodynamic performance. this is one furniture that should compliment Perry Watkins’ world’s fastest dinning table and also betters Chris McIntosh’s leisure motorized recliner chair.
