Future Cars Best Served Cold Hearted

Future Cars Best Served Cold Hearted

Imagine yourself on that lukewarm desert highway. The year: 2020. The time of day: dusk. You’re cruzin USA, thinkin nothing can harm a hombre like you in a place like this. Just then you see the flashing lights of a RT20 police mobile. You lay on the gas, thinking noone can catch you, “el Mexico!” But you just got served. Served up cold. Because you just got passed. By the RT20 highway patrol.

Dandyism Rule: Ride Must Be Stylish

Dandyism Rule: Ride Must Be Stylish

Dandy gentleman prefer to be chauffeured but that’s only because there isn’t a ride suitable to the lifestyle. Bentleys and exotic imports are way to flashy. They need something more refined and subdued like the Motobecane Motivo. The electric scooter rides you around in style. The in-wheel motors are powered by a removable, rechargeable suitcase wrapped in luxurious walnut. Not as tasteless as its Japanese counterpart and no where near as brash as an American chopper.

Pump-up Your Ride

Pump-up Your Ride

Ah…the pleasure of a skateboard! A teen’s companion and a worrying mother’s bane, this piece of board has transformed form a plane plank to a glitzy glam doll with finesse. Right now lets take a look at another kind that markets itself as a Pumpboard. Rolling up like a licorice wheel, this board can be pumped up with compressed air to make it a taut steady ride.

For the Scoot People with Too Much Luggage

For the Scoot People with Too Much Luggage

Though the classic cross-city bike messanger method / character / lifestyle will never be trumped by a motorized vehicle, one can dream of a nicer* way to carry one’s briefcase to work. *Nicer, in this case, meaning, gosh, I have to go to work every day, but it’s only a short distance. I’d sure like a more eco-friendly ride, but I have too much to carry!

It’s time to stash!

Emergency Hazard Lights Better Than Flares?

Emergency Hazard Lights Better Than Flares?

Emergency hazard lights aren’t anything new so unless you’re going to rewrite the book and create a paradigm shift, only thing you have to differentiate yourself is design. The Lumitic light is cute, yes I said cute! The egro handle lights up red to flag would be saviors down or a simple release turns the unit into a tripod to divert ongoing traffic. Better than emergency flares but not as fun. Something about fire.

Stay Outta My Lane

Stay Outta My Lane

A close brush with a distracted driver is enough to intimidate any avid bicycler from riding at night. You’ve probably seen small blinkers and flashers tucked just below the seat but that isn’t enough. As a daily driver in a very bike friendly city, I can attest I usually don’t notice those blinkers until I’m within a few hundred yards of the bicycler. That leaves very little distance and time to react if I were to collide with them.

Automotive Renaissance

Automotive Renaissance

For his masters diploma project conducted in Citroen’s Design Center (ADN), designer Antonin Maire D’Eglise set out to really break some new ground with his C-BIONIC concept. The hypothesis of the project is that in the near future, mankind will have depleted the natural resources so heavily relied upon in the automotive industry. This will lead way to a second renaissance, where de-materialization and genetic science will be used as building blocks in a more humanistic and poetic world.

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea

I’ve been itchin’ to use that cliche title for ages! Feels good to get that off my chest. I digress, the AQUA is obviously a submersible but one designed for exploration, fun, and possible a future when humans live in the oceans! This single-occupancy craft sails both on and under water using all the normal submersible tech like air to control buoyancy.

Getting Up While Getting Down

Getting Up While Getting Down

You new punk rockers and your graffiti skateboards! New wave, you say? No way. This skateboard is a strait up wild-style NYC modernist skateboard design. It’s an art-board, inspired by New York City “Wild Style” graffiti, but it’s also functional. Its unique shape provides lots of gawkers along with new bends, twists, and banks you’ve never broken your neck with before.

Look Ma, No Hands!

Look Ma, No Hands!

The Cherry produces no pollution, has all electric drive, plug-in battery, adjustable driving positions, collapses for storage and could be the next generation in personal transportation… maybe. The gel padded seat hides the plug-in battery and cushions your bum. Steering is controlled by leaning – motorcycle style. Those arm rests control braking and the entire drive engine sits inside the massive front wheel. The reduced number of parts saves money and makes it easy to customize. I’ll take a Hello Kitty one please.

How Many Supercars Can a Woodchuck Chuck

How Many Supercars Can a Woodchuck Chuck

And now for something completely different? I’d say this was a strange play on recent “keep your non-green riches a secret” trends, but it’s been in the works for a while. North Carolina State University’s craftspeople have got one amazing looking machine on their hands, and I dare say they’ve chosen the best time, (economically and green-wise,) to come this close to completion.

Lambo Like a Designer Would Lambo

Lambo Like a Designer Would Lambo

I like my Lamborghinis like I like my cheese-burgers : fast and flamboyant. And since you are an aficionado of such big and scary things, we’ll let you decide whether its worth 495,000 EUR for a one- of-a-kind Italian supercar designed by celebrity “skulls and swishes” fashion designer Christian Audigier.

Also the car goes very fast.
