Stratolaunch could change launches into space

by Mark R

For those who really like the idea of launching a passenger-carrying rocket into space like an airplane should hear about Stratolaunch. There is a video of it after the jump, but as you will soon see, it is a CG mock-up, no more real than what you see in a Pixar film. This because it is a concept for now, and you can see how it works. The plan takes …

Flyboard lets you fly like a bird, swim like a dolphin

by Mark R

Some of you might remember our report on the JetLev Flyer, a jet pack that used water for propellant. Similar in design is the Flyboard. The Flyboard doesn’t put all the thrust on the back, but puts it on boots. Not only that, the user has hand jets so he or she is capable of some seriously cool stunts. I would imagine that learning control of it is like how …

Sealander Schwimmcaravan lets you travel like a boss

by Edwin

Ever wondered what would happen when someone says, “whatever floats your boat”, and you shoot back with “You mean, my caravan”, only to receive a flabbergasted look on the other person’s face? Well, you sure as heck did not lose a screw somewhere, but rather, you are a proud owner of the Sealander Schwimmcaravan, although bringing this puppy home by road or through the river would have also emptied your …

Honda’s Micro Commuter concept car can be controlled with a smartphone

by Mark R

I’ve been seeing some nifty concept cars lately, like Toyota’s Fun-Vii. I’m not certain whether or not Honda can beat a car with touchscreen displays on the inside and outside, but the Honda Micro Commuter concept car could be it. The Honda Micro Commuter does have interchangeable panels that insert in the front and sides that allow users to customize how their cars look with a 2D graphic pattern. Another …

All I want for Christmas is the Toyota Fun-Vii

by Mark R

Toyota has created one of the ultimate concept cars, and like most concept cars, I doubt there will be many copies of this on the road. This is the Fun-Vii, and it is the best combination of a smartphone and a car that doesn’t end with a flattened mobile device. In case you can’t tell by this picture, the Fun-Vii has touch-sensitive displays that can show all sorts of colors, …

Mazda works on regenerative system with electric double layer capacitor

by Edwin

Everyone wants to go green these days, it makes perfect sense after all. We do not hand over the earth to our descendants as an inheritance, but rather, we are just caretakers of the earth for the next generation. I know that hybrid cars have been working their way into the psyches of folks worldwide, and electric cars, too, are picking up the pace, although there is still a long …

Mirrors turn this motorcycle nearly invisible

by Mark R

This is Joey Ruiter, and if you see him on the road with this Moto Undone, you might think he was Superman. That is, if Superman decided to fly in a sitting position low to the ground instead of a lying down position high in the air. Look again and see a motorcycle that is made of mirrored metal. Granted, it looks quite uncomfortable to sit on, but I would …
