Burnouts kill tires! Uh… well, continue burnouts.
Hot Tug hot tub boat lets you unwind with utter relaxation. And by utter relaxation we mean it lets you sail in water and enjoy a hot bath at the same time. Capable of accommodating six to eight people and 2000 liters of water, the boat makes use of a wood stove to heat the water. It does take a while for the water to heat up, but that probably is an acceptable cost to pay, apart from the pocket crunching $24500 that the boat wants.
Checking air in tires, important as it is, happens to be rarely considered by motorists. Goodyear has come up with the Air Maintenance Technology (AMT) that keeps air inside tires in check at all times. A rim mounted embedded tube sits near the wall of the tire to constantly monitor air pressure. When the sensor in the tube realizes that the air pressure is dropping, it opens up a valve to let in more air and inflate the tire.
Gold plated blingy things generally tend to be shiny, because that’s what they were made for, and this inherently takes away any chance they might have had at badassery. Thankfully, that isn’t the case with the Nehme-sis which has a humongous rear wheel, a body that nearly touches the ground, a 1700cc engine and a lot of gold on its body and wheels. Badassery is in this chopper’s blood it would seem.
Designer Benjamin Knapp Voith created the Bentley Roadster while on an internship at Bentley Motors. The concept is a tribute to the legendary Bentley Boys, and is as such built in the same form as the cars they drove, albeit as a modern interpretation.
Bruce Wayne has enough money to get himself fancy gadgets like the Batpod and Batmobile, but for Vietnam based Tùng Lâm money isn’t quite as readily available as for Bruce Wayne. The resourceful DIYer decided to work with scrap and junk to build himself the Dark Knight Batpod. Apparently, he just spent $480 to get his special BatPod running.
For a bus to go 98 feet in length, we would assume it could quite qualify as a tiny train on the road. Even more fitting to that name is the fact that the humongous bus carries 256 people. The Autotram Extra Grand is said to be as easily navigable as the commonly sized bus, it makes use of a computer system to help the driver with the turning.
For all the villainy and bad stuff Red Skull did in the Captain America movie, the dude sure had some good taste in cars. Sadly the movie didn’t quite show it off as well as it should have, but we can always have a look at the Hydra Schmidt concept with its renderings.
Manhattan Beach based Aerofex have developed a bike that hovers/flies, quite creating the effect of the Speeder from Star Wars. Massive fans are used to create enough thrust to lift the bike off the ground and keep it floating. Aerofex says the bike is easy enough to use and does not require any special training for the riders. It appears the company is busy trying to pitch the bike to the military, which obviously could have an interest in the bike; because well, everybody wants flying bikes.
You know what sucks? The high cost of gas and the fact that the sucker pollutes the atmosphere every second the engine runs. Something that runs on a vast energy source that is inexhaustible would be really cool, you know, like a car running on air. India’s Tata Motors has been working with MDI to create a car that runs on plain air; an alternative fuel that you can see is seemingly better than all other options we have at the moment.
