NEOS concept motorbike from designer Daniel Munnink has been created as a modular transport option for the 21st century. The enclosed motorbike system has been designed to be a low footprint travel option for congested city roads.

Rolls Royce unveiled its first electric vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show. The 102EX prototype is powered by a 71 kWh lithium-ion battery that feeds two electric motors that generate 389hp of power and 590 lb-ft of torque. The car can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in under eight seconds, has a top speed of 99mph, and a range of 124 miles. The numbers may look small and not all that impressive, but remember that the 102EX is based on the mighty Phantom, and there’s only little that can be done with a heavyweight like that, and it does translate into impressive performance.

Remember Volkswagen’s super cute commercial for the Super Bowl. Well, this is a parody of that commercial. Created by Martin Plourde, this one features a Toyota Corolla, so you know things aren’t quite going the way they went with Volkswagen. Plus, there’s a mystery greater than the force here.

Tag Heuer has a long standing relation with F1 racing, keeping the same in mind, designer Peter Vardai created the Formula 1 watch concept, with focus on the McLaren-Mercedes team.
