The idea was conceived by Malaysian illustrator, artist, and graphic designer Tang Yau Hoong, with the actual bike being brought to life by London-based artist Tadas Maksimovas and Dutch designer Martijn Koomen, the latter who hand-crafted the bike from carbon fiber. Life-sized scale models were first made from cardboard, along with some plywood, and was tweaked before actual molds were cast from resin, sanded down, and assembled.

Elon Musk's Boring Company isn't just working on Hyperloop systems, but also an urban loop system consisting of thousands of small stations, the size of a single parking space, that take you very close to your destination and also blend seamlessly into the fabric of a city, rather than a small number of big stations like a subway. "I guess you could say itís a 150 mph, underground, autonomous, electric bus that automatically switches between tunnels and lifts. So, yes, a bus," said Elon Musk.

There's the Segway miniPRO, and then the all-new Segway Loomo, which is like an R2-D2 of sorts that you can actually ride. This robot has been designed to function smoothly on just about any outdoor terrains, like grass or bumpy sidewalks, and performs tasks when it senses certain gestures. For example, when a user says "Loomo transform," the robot's face will swivel and looks up at you, and, if nothing is said, it will go explore its surroundings. Other features include: snapping photos or capturing videos with its 1080p camera, a quad-core Intel Atom Z8750 processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. When fully charged, Loomo can travel up to 11 mph for 20 miles. Continue reading for another hands-on video, more pictures and information.
