NSU Kettenkrad

Before the Ripsaw EV2, there was the Kettenkrad NUS, a tracked motorcycle / tank hybrid used in both the Eastern Front during World War II and the North African desert. It's powered by a 1478cc inline-4 water-cooled engine sourced from the Opel Olympia car featured throughout the German military, which made repairs a breeze since German mechanics at the time were more familiar with this powerplant.

Hyperloop One Test Track

Hyperloop One's ultrafast transportation system, capable of speeds of up to 760 mph, is now one step closer to becoming a reality. The tech company has just revealed its first full-scale test track in the Nevada desert that could one day form the basis of the final design that sends passengers hurtling between cities through low-pressure tubes just a few meters off the ground. This test track, called DevLoop, measures 500 meters long and 3.3 meters in diameter. "Our team of more than 150 engineers, technicians and fabricators have been transforming what was, just over five months ago, a barren stretch of desert, into a hive of activity and now home to the world's first full-scale hyperloop test site," said Josh Giegel, Hyperloop One co-founder and president of engineering.

Beijing decided to implement an ingenious idea to encourage people to recycle more by installing 34 "reverse" vending machines inside subway stations throughout the city. When an empty plastic bottle is inserted, a sensor scans it to assess the value of the plastic - anywhere from 5 to 15 cents - and turns that into public transportation credit or extra mobile phone minutes. The reward is commensurate with the quality and number of bottles being fed into the machine, while tourists who don't need the rewards can insert bottles anyways.
