    This is the Renovo Coupe, a 500HP electric sports car with a Shelby American chassis (based on the 1964 - 65 Shelby Daytona Coupe) and 1,000 ft-pounds of torque that can rocket you from 0 - 60MPH in 3.4 seconds. For reference, it takes my car almost a minute and a half to get ... / Continue →

    This is the suitcase scooter invented by Chinese farmer He Liang. It can not only carry your clothes, BUT CARRY YOUR ASS TO THE AIRPORT (provided you leave the night before and are cool cruising on the side of the highway in the dark at 12MPH). No word if it stands any chanc... / Continue →

    This is the Torq Roadster from electric vehicle company Epic EV. The all-electric trike can hit 0-60MPH in four seconds and handle turns at 1.3-G's. For reference, that's 0.3 more G's than a solo rap album. The Tumbler-esque design is state of the art. A carbon fiber body,... / Continue →

    This is the Kymera electric bodyboard. It doesn't need Mother Nature's sissy wave power because it has an electric engine and battery. It's basically a lay-down jet-ski, and I was actually pretty impressed with its speed. They're currently a Kickstarter project though so if y... / Continue →

    This is Traxxas' new 1/7-scale electric XO-1, the first ready-to-run (no assembly required) R/C car capable of doing a real (not scale) 100MPH fresh out of the box. But you're gonna need an actual raceway to drive the thing, because a Wal-Mart parking lot isn't gonna cut it at... / Continue →

    Moto Undone (just like the top few buttons of my blouse!) is a conceptual electric motorcycle designed by Joey Ruiter. When seen from a blurry ant's-eye-view, the bike almost seems to disappear. When seen clearly at normal height, it looks like a dude humping a mirror because... / Continue →

    Desktop worthy full-res picture HERE and interior dash HERE. In 1995 Texas entrepreneur Stephen Wynne bought the rights to the Delorean Motor Company and a warehouse of the manufacturer's original parts. Since then, the company has been repairing old models and making custom ... / Continue →

    But where's Robin gonna sit? "ON MY FACE!" You're nasty, Bat! Seen here with so much future-tech nailed on it's hard to believe it's not a prop from The Dark Knight Rises, 74-year old great grampa Brian Vannlooks (yeah -- looks ridiculous driving that thing!) shows off his h... / Continue →

    Remember UNO, the self-balancing motorcycle/Segway hybrid? We posted about it way back in April of '08. Don't be too hard on yourself if you don't remember, that was more than three years ago -- an eternity by butterfly standards. Well the latest incarnation, the UNO 3, is m... / Continue →

    I've never owned a Razor scooter. I tried a friend's once but I fell off a curb and scraped my knees really bad. There was blood. Also: townspeople laughing. Now I live all alone in a bell tower, ashamed. I did make a zip-line though so that's pretty coo. Razor scooters w... / Continue →

    The Chevy Volt, which was originally conceptualized to look like this, but ended up looking like something your aunt would drive, has officially sold over 1,000 models, and is now starting to receive some impressive feedback from consumers, including an average of over 1,000-mi... / Continue →

    Jealous Old Woman who Lives in a Shoe is jealous. It actually gets zero feet per gallon because it's electric. It does get 250 miles to a single charge at speeds up to 30MPH though, which isn't bad. Still no word if it comes equipped with modern safety features like ankle so... / Continue →

    First panda lips, now Pikachu. What's next? SPOILER: GW working overtime to blast off this planet. Now I know what you're thinking, but no, she won't shock your balls off. And not just because no girl in her right mind (which none are, amirite?!!!!!!11) would ever even CONS... / Continue →

    The Coz-e, like the Snuggie, is a giant piece of marketing shit. But, to its credit, the Coz-e does add the extra excitement of potential combustion. GET AWAY FROM ME GRANDPA, YOU'RE A SHUFFLING FIRE HAZARD! $68 takes one home, but no amount of money will replace your person... / Continue →

    What you're looking at is the MotoCzysz E1pc, the world's fastest electric motorcycle. Also, worst named. MotoCzysz E1pc, really? Sounds like a retarded computer hacker. Even though it looks like multiple rows of batteries with two wheels on either side, it's the most advan... / Continue →

    Oh God, the GW has gone and waded past the buoys marking the shallow end and is posting pictures of bushes again -- and not the good kind. Oh ye of little faith, you know I wouldn't do that to you (yes, yes I 100% would and not feel bad about it either). You see, that ain't n... / Continue →

    Two chainsaw posts in a row, you all know what that means. WEE-WOO, WEE-WOO, WEE-WOO!! Blue-light special in the power tools department! I swear these things have been around forever but Black and Decker's $80 Alligator Lopper has been making its rounds on the internet the... / Continue →

    Let's face it, golf courses aren't as safe as they used to be. So I'll be damned if I'm cruising around the links in an unprotected buggy. Thankfully, now there's the $45K Anti-Terrorist Assault Cart (Atac). *thwack* Fore! GO GO GO!! It weighs just under half a tonne, has ... / Continue →
