    This is the $15,000 Sportsman WV850 H.O. from Polaris. That's a pretty poor name. I would have called it the Unstoppable Earthf***er or something with STYLE. The all-terrain military inspired vehicle includes unpoppable TerrainArmor™ non-pneumatic tires which can stand up to... / Continue →

    I'm not really sure how it's been upgraded since the last time we saw it (new paintjob?), but this is a video for the Navy/BAE System's latest incarnation of their railgun. Man, I love how the launch screen in the control room looks like something straight out of Windows 95 wi... / Continue →

    Flying Hummers: I think I saw them on the menu at a Cirque du Soleil brothel. What?! I was writing an exposé! Just kidding, but I did write it off as a work-related expense. Business savvy: this guy. DARPA wants flying "Transformer" hummers for the military. AAI Corporat... / Continue →

    The Tracked Skateboard is the 125-lb lovechild of a tank and skateboard that shared a special night together while a Segway secretly filmed from the closet (hence the handlebars). You know, or it could have been made by BPG-WERKS for military applications if you're unimaginati... / Continue →
