    This is the Star Wars speeder bike mod added to a Segway by Youtuber Rodger Cleye. Looks like a pretty sweet ride. I bet the alien babes come running when they see that thing. Or like, crawling on their tentacles or however they get around. Maybe they can levitate. If they... / Continue →

    This is the $300 Hauck NERF Battle Racer. It's a little pedal car with a bunch of built-in storage for NERF guns and ammo. That way you can shoot your friends ON THE GO. Because how important is steering really? If I had to choose between two hands on the wheel, one hand on... / Continue →
