Small Fuel Cell Olympics

Small Fuel Cell Olympics

Do you know the future? Do you know what will happen during the Helinski Olympics of 2030? Finland will be there, I would hope. Finland will be represented by a small fuel cell powered vehicle that’ll offer tours around the whole arena of sights showing off the fabulousness of indigenous Finland. See Finland’s entirety in this fantastic environmentally sound, tiny cute car. Made from local glass, wool felt, recycled bio plastic, bent birch plywood, and ceramics.

A Fresh Anvil Bike

A Fresh Anvil Bike

Oh yes! A lovely new bike. ASI Kestrel hired Anvil Studios to design a fabulous new carbon filter Time Trial bike. Collaborating with design consultant Sean Horita they’ve made this “4000LTD.” It’s a really nice lookin bike, I gotta say. It’s high-end, integrates molded-composite features with “cutting-edge aesthetic identity”, and both empowers and expands the identity of the Kestrel brand.

Floating on Clean Air

Floating on Clean Air

In an effort to bring the environmental movement above the clouds, Thomas Tzortzi’s designed an airship for the world. Tzortzi concentrated on the culture of tourism prevalent throughout the entire world, airplanes rocking and rolling above the stratus, creating what’s undoubtedly an unnecessary pollution. This airship also aims to lie on the design line between art and science, working it hard in both form and function.

Not Just a Duck

Not Just a Duck

If you ever travel to Wisconsin Dells in Wisconsin, USA, you’re going to find two things – one, lots of waterslides, two, ducks! Ducks in Wisconsin are boats with wheels, made for both land and water tourism. The post you’re reading right now isn’t a duck, it’s so much more! It’s the “Volkswagen Terrafine” and it’s designed by Niklas Palm for a union of water and land vehicles in a very rock and roll sort of manner. Landcruise then jet through the waves!

How to Cut Waves with Speed

How to Cut Waves with Speed

Industrial designer Jan Gielens creates a boat called “Breaking,” Yanko Design breaks a post about breaking. The people who read about Breaking have their nose-cartilages broken after having crammed them against their computer screens, and all is well. It’s a giant shape. It’s a tiny boat shaped like a boat you’ve never before seen, let me assure you. You’ll be cruising so hard in this Breaking boat you wont ever want to pilot one of those “old-timey” boats again. Cruise hard!

Cars in Halfsies

Cars in Halfsies

When you’ve got a whole barrel full of money, that is, when you’re completely rich, you have the luxury of choosing your own ultra-fabulous car. And when you do, you want not only a beautiful interior and exterior, not only do you want a fabulously running car, you want it to say something! I don’t mean like knightrider, no, I mean you want it to be an expression of who YOU are. This is the Bentley “Jeckyll and Hyde.”

Mister Tastee's Tricycle

Mister Tastee’s Tricycle

This right here is a solar powered cooling machine. It’s a cooling container that cyclists can use to store chilled products, made to work independent of any service supply. “The hotter the day, the cooler the ice cream.” Solar panels imbedded in a membrane, connected to solar charge regulators, using wires situated within the panels, generate around 35W on a sunny day. Keepin them cones cool with the power of the sun. Super poetic and scrumptious.

Chopper Scooter, I'm Totally Serious

Chopper Scooter, I’m Totally Serious

If scooters are too passe for your bad boy, Jesse James lovin’ ego, check out this Chopper Scooter. The motorized mover was designed with linear lines and flowing shapes in mind – anything to hide it’s true identity. Great way to bring up those kids and get them all indoctrinated into the culture.

New Bike Carrying Culture

New Bike Carrying Culture

Designer Faris ELmasu is about to change the entire world of bike baskets. Up until now, the bike basket has been entirely lame. Made for the littlest kids and those who wish to steal puppies and turn into witches.* Now, all of that is changed. Yes, this is the “Bent Wood Basket.” Made specifically for the neo-hippy aka Hipster culture, this basket is beyond trendy. It’s downright cute and useful.

Regarding Beauty in Audi

Regarding Beauty in Audi

A fabulous design comes to my internet doorstep today, Amar Vaya, a designer who takes extra philosophical time in designing a car, one called Axiom in this case. Branded with the Audi name, the Axiom is an exercise in emphasizing the idea of “beauty” within the tradition of Audi’s idiom. What’s that mean? It means it’s gotta look like an Audi. People HAVE to know that it’s an Audi when they first peek at it. But right before or right after that, their next thought has to be “wow, that is quite the sight to behold, wouldn’t you say so? Yes, yes I would.”

Automotive Yellow Power

Automotive Yellow Power

This car right here goes by the name “AMV-R”, an acronym which stands for Automotive Visual Racing. And it’s fantastic. Your eyeballs are going to explode when you peek at the images in this post’s gallery, if you haven’t already. But then again, if you had already, you wouldn’t have eyes. Designer Alexei Mikhailov presents a spectacular vision that mixes Italian and German styling with an “exotic” and precise surface flow.

Skeletal Electrics on Two Wheels!

Skeletal Electrics on Two Wheels!

Oh my goodness, this is a shiny, sharp looking triad of motorcycle vehicles. Before you get down too far in the description, take note that the red and the black are diesel/electric engines while the gray is an electric only, working with the battery. Then below that in this project post’s gallery you’ll see the “shared” battery station, which is quite the looker and something I’d sure like to see in the real world for real. Designer Paolo De Giusti presents three Naked bikes.

Etta Bike Baby!

Etta Bike Baby!

Pratt Student Nick Foley has designed the Etta as a new-age urban commuter bicycle that is safer, more convenient, and more accessible to non-cyclists than traditional bicycles. Drawing on his own experience of working in a cycle shop and recreational cycling, Nick brings us a version that is easy on your posture, finds a new place to stash your load and aesthetically appealing. The highlights are integrated storage with a low center-of-gravity; integrated lighting and theft-proof nighttime safety. Light and compact, this is one bike I’m ready to test ride NOW!
