    This is Tesla's Model X, the company's $132,000 entry into the electric SUV market. It has seating for six or seven (you can opt for a two or three seat middle row), can go 250 miles on a charge, and has rear gull-wing doors (they call them falcon wings because they're also ar... / Continue →

    Remember yesterday's video of Tesla's new robot penis car charger? Well this is the same video with Marvin Gaye's 'Let's Get It On' added, making it infinitely better. I never thought I'd be aroused by a robot video, but my current boner speaks volumes. Jk jk, my boner only ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of one of Tesla's prototype chargers demonstrating its ability to locate a car's charging port and plug itself in. Why does this exist? Can people not be bothered to plug their own cars in? I don't sit around at the gas station waiting for Johnny Five t... / Continue →

    The GolfBoard is the $6,500 cross between a golf cart and an electric skateboard. It carries your golf bag as you ride between shots. Obviously, I'm going to ride mine off the high dive and into the country club's swimming pool. Also, I get the feeling some snobby golf cours... / Continue →

    This is the $17 HUMMbucker Electric Kazoo from Kazoobie Kazoos. It comes with a Kazoo and a specially designed pickup so you can finally rock out with your kazoo out. *ziiiiiiip* Not that kazoo, pervert. Also, you really need to wash because I could smell that thing from he... / Continue →

    This is a video of a simple electric train made out of a length of copper wire, several neodymium magnets, and a AA-battery (previously: an even simpler tracked version). Obviously, I just made a human-size version and should be in Japan in just under two hours. Am I wearing ... / Continue →

    This is a video of 'pioneers of the cello music revolution' (although I'm pretty sure that happened in the 1700's) group 2CELLOS performing Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' on electric cellos (which may or may not double as laser rifles). I had no idea there was going to be... / Continue →

    Remember Razor's Crazy Cart electric drifting fun cart that we were all excited about until we realized a good portion of us are all over the 140-lb weight capacity? And then they announced they were going to make a version for fuller-sized adults? Well this is the reveal vid... / Continue →

    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 the $4,000 Boxx electric bike. It's 120 pounds, 36-inches long, gets 80-miles to a charge, can reach break-neck speeds up to 35MPH, carry riders up to 300-lbs, and looks nothing like a TRON light cycle. If you think it looks like a TRON light cycle you are either 1) b... / 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 →
