Something Cool Hiding in this Tire

Something Cool Hiding in this Tire

Biking and camping go hand-in-hand, so this clever combination makes perfect sense for anyone looking for adventure! The Travel Tent is integrated seamlessly into a specialized bicycle wheel, giving the rider easy access once they arrive at their destination. It also takes some of the load off the rider’s back while freeing up space for other cargo. No question that it’s an interesting concept, but I’d love to see a functional version that adapts to any existing tire!

The child’s smart-harness relays GPS and heart rate/breathing vitals to the system which is accessible via parents’ smartphones.

The only time fake can be fashionable!

The only time fake can be fashionable!

The Impetus leg prosthetic gives sports-minded amputees not only the capability to play sports again, but to boost their confidence while doing so. 3D printed sections on the design can be interchanged and created precisely for the wearer’s individual taste and style or to carry uniform colors. Designed and shaped to bipedal physics and proportions, it gives amputees ability and aesthetics on the same level as non-amputee players.

Surf the Streets!

Surf the Streets!

DESKA Board’s CitySurf concept brings the thrill of extreme sports like snowboarding and surfing to the streets! It’s hard to compare to anything else because it’s seriously unique. On one hand, it rides like a skateboard with a similar stance and low clearance, but features a hand brake, 3 larger wheels, and a flexible belt on which the rider stands. On the other, it’s akin to a windsurf board with its sail used to propel it and control direction.

Lean, Mean, Muscle Machine

Lean, Mean, Muscle Machine

At a glance, this wild bike concept looks more like a sculpture… maybe even something out of the Body Worlds Exhibit! Drawing from our very own anatomy, Zapfina takes inspiration from the relationship between bones, ligaments, and muscles, translating their connection to a design language fit for 2-wheels. The Z shaped frame was formed like a joint to absorb shock and protect moving components like the chain and gears. All it needs is a little human muscle!

Tricky for Fishies but Good for Us!

Tricky for Fishies but Good for Us!

Any successful fisherman knows that light is key in making a catch. That’s why so many lures are pretty and glittery, but in deep water they’re really no use as the light only penetrates just below the surface. Problem solved! The Solar Rapala lure harnessed the sun’s energy to power its shimmering LED light, making it not only more effective during daylight but the single best bait to use at night!
