Install the Apache Backcountry Track System onto a Can-Am ATV, and it becomes a heavy duty snowmobile. This entire kit takes just 20 minutes to put on from start to finish, and once completed, you'll be able to get the best ground clearance, and lowest steering effort on snowy terrain. There's just one problem, you'll have to shell out $3,800 for one of these kits, and that's not including the time you'll spend putting it on.

Intel used 300 of their custom "Shooting Star" drones to put on a stunning light display during Lady Gaga's Super Bowl LI Halftime Show. More specifically, each drone measures approximately a foot long square, weighs just over eight ounces, and sports a plastic and foam body. They communicate with each other wirelessly using a central computer to execute its dance routine, while the computer checks the battery level as well as the GPS signal strength of each drone just before showtime, and assigns roles accordingly. Reserve units were put on standby, and ready to take over within seconds should one (or many) falter. One thing you may not have known is that Intel had to tape the drone display long before the Super Bowl to avoid violoating airspace rules.

Lampuga, a subsidiary of Hamburg-based Sashay GmbH, unveils Lampuga Air, an inflatable jet-drive surfboard that boasts a modular design, enabling owners to swap the jet drive between four different hull styles - from the standard 6.5-foot (2-m) surfboard to a short, lie-atop body board. Since an electric jet drive consisting of a motor, battery pack and other components is no small, collapsible piece of hardware, Lampuga builds the Air drive into a separate module, which secures to the hull on site. The jet drive has a 15-hp motor, good for 40-minutes of continuous use on a full charge, while topping out at 29 mph (47 km/h). The rider controls the Air with a wireless handheld controller.

This bike sports a standard dirt bike swing arm configuration making it compatible with existing snow track systems, while existing Christini 'AWD 450 four stroke' or '300 two stroke' motorcycle owners can easily opt for the conversion.

Designed by engineer Martin Sula, JetSurf is essentially a motorized surfboard good for 34mph on the open water. This is made possible by a specially designed two-stroke 90 cubic centimeter MSR 50.2 HXT engine producing a ample 12-horsepower to propel a featherweight carbon fiber hull that tips the scale at just 30-pounds. All of this means it's easier to handle on the water, and a breeze when transporting the board. Click here for the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

River cruises are nothing new, but a floating gym powered by human energy is an entirely different story. Designed to flow down the Seine River, this 20-meter-long Paris Navigating Gym is powered by Technogym's revolutionary ARTIS exercise machines, which harvest power generated by humans. "The Paris Navigating Gym investigates the potential of harnessing human power. It's fascinating to see how the energy generated by a workout at the gym can actually help to propel a boat. It provides one with a tangible experience of what lies behind the often abstract notion of 'electric power'," said Carlo Ratti, founder of Carlo Ratti Associati.
