While it may look like a futuristic vehicle from the next TRON movie, it's just the Toyota FV2 (Fun Vehicle 2). The company claims the bike, while autonomous (self-driving), will be 'driving fun in the future' by reading your emotions and providing information on its augmented reality display. It features four wheels - one at the rear, two in the middle and one at the front - and at the top of the bike is a sliding panel that closes when the bike is not in use. After unlocking, the bike will slide the panel up, allowing you to sit in the middle and also provide an interactive display on the panel's interior. With this display, you can then give the bike a destination you wish to travel to. Continue reading for a video and more information.

That's right light-absorbing, glow-in-the-dark road markings have replaced traditional street lights on a 500-meter stretch of highway in The Netherlands. To accomplish this, the roads are treated with a special foto-luminizing powder that's charged by the sun during the day, which allows the marks to glow for up to 10 hours at night.

Why travel the world by plane, when you've got the skills to build a high-tech camper van? Called the "KiraVan", this giant custom-built all-terrain truck, is capable of traveling almost anywhere in the world, and was created by 61-year-old Californian inventor Bran Ferren for his 4-year-old daughter Kira. It comes complete with a fully stocked office, kitchen, bedroom, and even a popup tent on the roof. According to The Mail, "It will be able to travel up to 2,000 miles without resupply and navigate slopes as steep as 45 degrees thanks to a special suspension system.
