This R2-D2/ Vespa belongs to Morgan, a reader of Geekologie. Morgan is a Star Wars fan and a fifth grade teacher, who thought things would make perfect sense if he modded his scooter into the livery of R2-D2. It does happen to be a well executed paint job, one that would encourage Princess Leia to rest her bottoms on those seats.
Haman’s memoR is an especially decked out McLaren MP4-12C. While going in for the colorful paintjob, Hamann also did what they do best: tune the car. Using a little inspiration from the 1995 LeMans champion McLaren F1, Hamann gave the car a new aerodynamic package in the shape of carbon front spoiler, carbon mudguards, air outlets, front apron, attachments to the side aprons and larger air inlets for the mid-engined supercar.
Romain Jerome and DelLorean automobiles have come together to produce a watch that matches up with the style and spunk of the time travelling car. DeLorean-DNA attempts to stay as close as possible to the car’s aesthetics. Brushed stainless steel gives it a bit likeliness to the color of the famous car, while extensive use of same materials as used in the original bodywork of DeLorean cars adds another dimension of similarity.
The boombox is apparently the most loved gadget of all time, and we’re going to assume a giant one is going to get even more love. Berlin based artist and designer Bartek Elsner made the giant cardboard boombox as a promotion for the International Radio Festival 2012 in Zurich / Switzerland, on commission by MINI.
Having a home in a truck doesn’t quite sound habitable, let alone comfortable. But the world has a habit of doing the unthinkable, which brings us to this tiny home in a truck that looks surprisingly comfortable for a dwelling its size. Built inside the standard UNICAT truck, the house has a bedroom, bathroom, office, lounge, and a life of adventure.
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.
