Harley Davidson Circa 2020

Harley Davidson Circa 2020

Somebody pass me a helmut and a time travel ship because if this is what Harley bikes look like in 10 years, I’m so there. Designer Miguel Cotto pays homage to the big road hogs by keeping the large 883cc engine, complete with high revs and roars. The similarities end there. The design is almost tron-like in execution. Check out the wheel hubs. They’re actually giant bearings. I do see glimpses of Harley DNA in the center chassis but seriously, can you image any road warriors riding this?

Curvy Bike

Curvy Bike

How would you re-define a bike? Tinker with it to get greater speed and performance? The curvy Hidemax Cycle is born out of the notion to enhance speed, functionality, looks, comfort, resistance and durability. In short it tries to address all major issues that bog a bicycle designer. Here’s what it’s got: adjustable height achieved by loosening the grip apparatus around the steering wheel. Instead of an up/down axis, the saddle of the bike can be adjusted to left/right through its 2 different joint points.

Bicycle Parking, Long Term

Bicycle Parking, Long Term

Sometimes “long term parking” is another way of saying “your bike got jacked” – not this time though, this is a much better deal. It’s a bike rack concept, but better than that, it’s a long term bike rack, including safe storage, WC, showers, and lounge. This is precisely what a city like Minneapolis is starving for.

Pony Riding The Blazing Orange Ela

Pony Riding The Blazing Orange Ela

Peugeot ELA is a concept car for the future. It’s green, mean and a blazing glory of fireball orange! Lemme explain, the vehicle is a hybrid of electro magnet and solar energy and runs on a thin surface of air. It’s not the first time that a designer has predicted that the future road surfaces will conform to the electro magnet tech used in trains. Anyways, the solar cells on the roof of the car provide the extra zing. I love the flashy bright color of this two-seater, do you?

Virtual Life in Megatropolises

Virtual Life in Megatropolises

Virtual reality was once the holy grail of computer science and interactivity. It promised to free us from the limits of our bodies and allow our minds to roam free in a universe completely within our control. It was touted as the future entertainment medium with applications in science and medicine but designer Vagarsh Saakyan thinks it could be our whole way of life.

By The Power Of Grayskull

He-Man or not, pedaling up a steep slope can knock the wind out the healthiest of us all. That’s why we need hybrid bikes like the Wind-Solar Energy Bike. Bikes like this harness wind energy, solar energy, shock energy and muscle power, only to be used at those tough climbs or when you turn lazy! The spoiler of this bike is covered with solar panels and is fixed below the handles of the bike to produce lifting force for lightening the weight of the bike.

I Got Steam

I Got Steam

Steam999 is a conceptual exhibition recognizing the by gone era of trains with approbatory glee. Before planes and cars, the locomotive dream was fulfilled by steam trains. They quickly evolved from their industrial workhorse roots to pieces of marvelous mechanical engineering. The exhibition calls for a real working train built in an ecological way servicing an exceptional geographic site. The twin stack machine is elegant and represents the pinnacle of  steam engine train design.
