The nCycle is Here

The nCycle is Here

Featured on Yanko earlier this year, we’re excited to announce that the revolutionary nCycle has move to a prototype phase… which means one step closer to you! Conceived as the ultimate expression of automotive beauty for e-bikes, the nCycle incorporates only the very essence of the vehicle itself and discards all the superfluous elements. The result of this approach is a single, continuously flowing frame which simultaneously outlines and defines the e-bike as a viable next generation vehicle.

Saved By the Net

Saved By the Net

Net Rescue Boat is a lifeboat dredge with a net. The purpose of this re-design stems from the difficulties rescuers face while on missions using a regular lifeboat. The net area makes it easier to bring people to safety and commence first aid. Yep, in playtime we can also think of many party uses for the net area … but that’s just a wicked side of us!

Locomotive Legacy

Locomotive Legacy

Since 1968, the EF66 series of electric-only locomotives have been synonymous with strength & dependability, ushering in the golden age of engine craftsmanship in Japan for high-speed trains. As a tribute to this legacy, Masahiro Minami designed the EF66-2000 concept as an experimental model of the vehicle typology. The design inherits aesthetic & quality DNA from its ancestor & sports a modern output of 3,900 kW, 1,500 V direct current, and a VVVF inverter within its 100.13 ton weight, all resulting in a top speed of 130 km/hr.

Bodacious Bourbon Barrel Boarding

Bodacious Bourbon Barrel Boarding

The Bourbon Barrel Board is as simple as it sounds: a skateboard made from reclaimed bourbon barrels! The use of this upcycled material makes them not only eco-friendly but stylish, described by the designers as “skateable fashion.” In two distinct styles, Flip and Jive, you can cruise or freestyle with comfort and confidence thanks to the natural curvature that gives each an ideal center of gravity. They’re as smooth and strong as the bourbon that came before them! See em’ in action —>

Wheel to the Rescue

Wheel to the Rescue

The RollEvac military vehicle concept uses biomimicry to aid in time-sensitive rescue and evacuation operations in combat situations. Inspired by the golden wheel spider, which curls its body into a wheel shape and rolls down sand dunes as a method of escape, the RollEvac maneuvers in an upright position, rolling over terrain with spring-loaded legs for traction. Inside, passengers are balanced and protected by the armored exterior while being transported to safety.

ATV Awesomeness

ATV Awesomeness

We usually consider ATV’s to be testosterone-fueled tuff stuff, and this quad is no exception, but you might find its aesthetic inspiration surprisingly soft! The Shiva was designed with… wait for it… seriously, take a breath… DANCING in mind! And not just any dancing, but ribbon dancing. Before you start giggling, check out its fierce fairings, aggressive aerodynamic shape and sporty paint job. It might come from a tender place, but the result is a mean-looking modern machine.

Out of This World Fixie

Out of This World Fixie

As you might have guessed from the name, the Space Roam fixed gear bike looks to the universe for inspiration to break away from predictable design. Like liquid metal, the ultra-streamlined frame achieves an almost monocoque aesthetic with the only visible break being that of the front wheel. Built for speed, it’s so lightweight you’ll feel like you’re riding the moon!

Ultra-lux Powerboat

Ultra-lux Powerboat

This sporty yet sophisticated luxury powerboat concept takes inspiration from its land-bound cousin, the super sports car. Aside from its flared fender-like frame, the highlight of the auto-inspired design is a cockpit fit with racing-style bucket seats, a center console, proper dash and creature comforts like climate control. Though the interior is more akin to a Fisker Karma than a fishing boat, the design is contrasted with classic nautical features like its beautiful slatted, wraparound deck. DO WANT!

A Sub for the Masses

A Sub for the Masses

We’ve gone to the moon and even sent probes to Mars, but it’s mind boggling to think that we’ve only managed to explore 10% of our own vast oceans! This is in part because the deep sea has been limited to scientists and research groups. The Manatee submersible concept vehicle was designed to give the rest of us a chance to do a little exploring of our own. More about recreation than scientific discovery, the interior is roomy and comfortable for a relaxing experience. A simple user interface, joystick controls and touch screen controls ensure anyone can get the hang of it.

Superhero-inspired Airship

Superhero-inspired Airship

The Sting R12 looks like something straight out of a sic-fi movie, and that’s because it was widely inspired by Marvel-Shield’s Quinjet aircraft. The vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) craft was designed for both military and civilian uses ranging from reconnaissance to short-range transit. At the heart of the design are horizontal stabilizers found on either side of the wings. These, in combination with static dual jet engines, make it highly maneuverable and able to go anywhere a chopper goes.
