Let's face it, bikes may be convenient, but they just aren't fast enough to keep up with regular cars, that is unless...you're talking about the innovative Raht Racer. This hybrid vehicle of sorts amplifies pedal power to enable riders to travel at car speeds while still getting a workout. That's right, its flywheel generator is powerful enough to enable it to hit a top speed of 100 miles per hour. To keep things light and safe, Raht Racer uses a composite body with an integrated roll cage, air bags and seat belts. An on-board computer tracks the user's workout information and performance. "Safer than a motorcycle, or bicycle on a busy street, the Raht has an integrated roll cage, reinforced carbon fiber body and automotive safety features like headlights, tail lights, seat belts & air bag. It will forever change the way you exercise and travel," said the company. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

ArcaBoard may not have the latest technology, but it is still a working hoverboard nonetheless. Instead of using magnetic levitation, it uses 36 electric fans to generate 430 pounds of downward thrust for lifting riders off the ground. Its 272-horsepower generated by 36 fans uses a lot of power, so ride time is currently limited to 6-minutes. Continue reading for another video and more information.

The Federal Aviation Administration has just approved Terrafugia's TF-X flying car for testing. With enough space for 4 adults, it drives like a normal hybrid, with the wings neatly tucked away in a compartment located above the rocker panels for easy parking. Once ready to fly, the wings deploy in seconds at the push of a button, and two electric motors linked to a pair of propellers join forces to generate a megawatt of power, enabling it to take off vertically, eliminating the need for a runway. A 300HP gasoline engine kicks in once the vehicle reaches altitude to complement the electric motors as well as top up the battery pack. Its propellers fold out of the way past a certain speed, and the thrust is generated by a large rear-mounted fan. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

The stealthy Bolt M-1 is an electric motorcycle that rides like a bike, with a top seed of 20mph and a maximum power output of 1,000 watts. In sport mode, the bike can reach a top speed of 40 mph, but the company explicitly states that this is for "off-road" use only. On the other hand, switching to economy mode lets riders enjoy up to 50-miles on a single charge without the need to pedal.
