Flying Car

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's an Aeromobil? That's right, Slovakian Engineer Stefan Klein has created yet another flying car. The Aeromobil 2.5 features a 19-foot long body, a zippy Rotax 912 engine, carbon-coated steel frame, and collapsible wings for maximum portability. There's room for two inside and it can reach a top speed of 124 mph while taking off and landing. Continue reading for more images and a second video of it landing.

Personal Submarine

In the James Bond film "For Your Eyes Only", there was a nifty submarine that attacked Agent 007. Now, the man who created that submarine has come up with a new personal luxury submarine for wealthy consumers, and you don't even have to be a super spy to enjoy it. It's called the Deepflight Submarine Super Falcon Mark II by Graham Hawkes, and this submersible measures 17 feet long and seats two, with each person getting their own bubble-glass cockpit.

Kreweser

Summer may be over (or soon to begin) for many of us, but that doesn't mean wrapping yourself up and sitting by the fireplace just yet. There may still be time left to make use of Kreweser, a foldable electric trike that comes equipped with a 94-quart cooler, which doubles as a seat. Once you reach your destination (at up to 18mph), the cooler can easily be removed from the trike. Continue reading for more images and information.

Google Self Driving Car

Here's yet another look at Google's self-driving car, which is almost ready for public streets around the world. Just to recap, it uses a combination of video cameras, radar sensors, lasers, GPS and the most detailed 3D maps ever compiled to navigate the roads. According to Chris Urmson, leader of the project, "The maps even show the height of the curb. They are constantly being updated to show road works and other variables."

Airstream Trailer

It looks like a classic 1954 Airstream Flying Cloud on the outside, but on the inside, everything has been transformed for a luxurious getaway by the team at Timeless Travel Trailers. You'll find plenty of natural hickory wood paneling / accents, along with aged oak flooring, copper sheet, and genuine leather to finish off the theme. The restoration also included a hand-polished exterior, as well as a new axle, brakes, running gear, suspension, wheels, tires, and coupler solidify the ride. Continue reading for more pictures.

Paddleboard Light

Paddleboarding at night normally means wearing a headlight, but now, thanks to NightSUP, that's not even necessary. Simply attach a custom-made permanent strip of LED lights around the border of a board, and you're provided with a source of light to guide you at night, illuminating the ocean floor below.

Mercedes-Benz Brabus Sprinter X

At first glance, this either appears to either the interior of a futuristic spacecraft, or a first class airline suite, but it's actually just the Mercedes-Benz Brabus Sprinter X van. In addition to a built-in Nespresso machine, there are four business seats for conferences, a third additional row of seats, all of which are heated and have integrated massage functions. Continue reading for more pictures and information.

Unstealable Bike

One student decided to design a bike that just can't be stolen without breaking the frame itself. The video above shows that bike's frame can unlatching, along with the seat post, to enable you to wrap it around a stationary object. In other words, the frame itself becomes a part of the lock. The only way to get it free is to break the frame, making it useless, and hopefully, not worth stealing. Continue reading for more images.

Ryno Unicycle

Unlike the Segway, Ryno's electric unicycle, created by designer Chris Hoffmann will have a top speed of 25 mph, a range of up to 30 miles and an impressive 25-inch thick tire. Practical uses include it being used by patrolmen or guards who spend a lot of time walking back and forth over the same ground. Currently, the pre-production models will set you back $25,000, but Chris expects the production versions to cost a mere $3,500. Continue reading for another road test video.

What happens when you cross a Star Wars X-Wing, F-117A Nighthawk, and a speedboat? The "Ghost" by Juliet Marine. This crazy vessel was invented and designed by a medical tech millionaire Gregory Sancoff in Maine. It's made to 'fly' above the water on legs and deliver marines into battle. The 38-foot long main cabin rests on top of a pair of 12-foot tall struts which, when moving at speed, prop the cabin above the water like a hydrofoil.
