RYNO is one wheeled Segway, again

by Mark R

For some reason reason, there has been an excess of one wheeled vehicles like the Honda U3-X, the PUMA by GM and Segway, as well as the eniCycle. So, why should I report on the RYNO? Well, you can see from the video here that, from the back, this looks just like someone who is riding a motorcycle. Seriously, if I was behind a person riding the RYNO on the …

Tree Planting Robot

Imagine living in a world where all the trees are slowly dying, and all animals must be replaced with robotic couterparts. This would be the giraffe. Actually, this particular robot is designed to prevent an environmental apocalypse. You see, this is a Tree Planting Robot, designed for reforestation projects. The Tree Planting Robot is good for carrying 320 seedlings, with each one in a biodegradable plastic protective barrier that protects …

HumanCar can go 60 mph with just human power

by Mark R

This is the HumanCar, and it is a vehicle that does not require gas. Oh yes, I am not making this up. It is designed by Charles Greenwood, and it made by the user “rowing” to go forward, and it also has a back-up electric battery. Somehow, this allows the driver to reach speeds of up to 60 miles per hour. There is a video of this after the jump …

Sign Language over the cell phone

by Mark R

Yes, sign language on a cellular phone. I realize that this sounds like an incredibly sick joke, like a Driver’s Manual in Braille, but this is a study going on at the University of Washington (UW). Now, you might think that the hearing impaired could communicate via text message and Instant Messages, but I’m sure that we all know how easily a simple message with its tone could be misinterpreted. …

Vertrax skateboard has a tank tread with electric motor

by Mark R

I always like covering the latest in skateboard technology, perhaps it is because I used to have a skateboard, and I know its limitations.

However, the Vertrax is. Designer Brian Lovett created this one with a …

Tube Concept system of mass transit

by Mark R

Check out these people with their round wheel-shaped vehicles. It reminds me of this thing that General Grievous rode in that Star Wars Episode III movie. This is part of something that my Source calls the Tube Concept, and it is a revolutionary system of mass transit. It is similar to the Metropia that we reported on about a week ago. Essentially, every commuter has one of these vehicles, which …

WASP seeks out Wi-Fi and gives it back

Posh Lamp looks more like an old cassette player

by Ally

This is one of those lights that you’re probably either going to love it or hate it.  I don’t see a whole lot of middle ground going with this one.  It’s a light that normally would be considered a portable light by the looks of it.  However, despite the very square portable look it’s actually a full on lamp, complete with a fancy chrome stand.
