Here’s A Real-life BTTF DeLorean That Flies, Well, Kind Of…

What you see here is a hovercraft version of the iconic flying car from the second instalment of Back to the Future. I know right. If the DeLorean from the movie flies, surely it can skim over water too, right? Honestly, I don’t know if it could, but one thing for sure is, this DeLorean Hovercraft surely can. Except that this isn’t an actual DeLorean. It is a custom built hovercraft that has a shell that mimics the look of legendary DeLorean DMC-12 as featured in BTTF trilogy.

Lee Rosario Literally Takes ‘Amphibious’ To The Next Level Of High

I am sure you know what an ‘amphibious vehicle’ is. In the automotive world, it means a vehicle capable of traversing the water and land, and vice versa, seamlessly, but Lee Rosario’s Hyperlight Aeros takes the meaning of ‘amphibious’ to the next level of high. To be more precise, the designer’s concept of ‘amphibious’ is taking it from under the water, as a submarine, straight into the air as an aircraft. Seriously, dude, this is 100% science fiction, but I absolutely love it! Continue reading Lee Rosario Literally Takes ‘Amphibious’ To The Next Level Of High

A Lake Is Not Going To Stop This Russian Made Sherp ATV From Going Places

All-Terrain Vehicle, or commonly known as ATV, is designed to go just about anywhere. A true ATV can hit up the beaten trails, but then again, it is not quite “all-terrain” if it stop short of water, right? Unfortunately, that’s the case for most ATVs, but not the Sherp ATV. Looking more like a life-size Tonka Truck, this Russian-made machine is equipped with four ginormous self-inflated tires, each measuring 1.6 meters in diameter (62.9″), which, together with a generous clearance, allows it climb over up to 70 cm (2.3′) obstacles and wade across waterbody without ending up in the bottom of the lake. Instead of the usual treads you find on a regular tires, Sherp ATV’s massive rubbers sport makeshift paddles that also serve as traction treads when on land.
