RocketShields for rainy days on your Motorcycle!

RocketShields for rainy days on your Motorcycle!

Here’s an interesting RocketShield, that will protect you from rain on your bad weather commutes. Personally, I would never spend money on something like this but there’s should be plenty people who might be in need of this.

For the record, this shield does seem to have aero-dynamic effects so you don’t have to crouch down going at higher speeds.  Maybe the racers might start pickin’ up on this.

What originally started as a remedy to keep the rain off of my fa

Cargo Bike for Moms

Here’s an interesting cargo bike that can carry your children to school instead of guzzling your 4×4 SUV.

The popularity of the machines is likely to have been boosted by Richmond raising the cost of a parking permit for a large-engined “gas guzzler” to £150. It is also considering charging £75 for an annual permit to drop children off at school by car.

Human Powered Off-Road 4X4 - TrailCart!

Yey, a human powered off-road 4×4!  Can it go over big rocks though?

The Trail Cart: A permanent four-wheel drive “bike” for the true off-road masochist. Looking at the size of those tires, and the fact that you are powering all four of them with your legs, we’d suspect that this thing would takes thighs the size of hams to even start it moving.

RailRunner for all your Trainwreck desires!

RailRunner for all your Trainwreck desires!

Now here’s a gadget that would match really well with some trainwreck…

The Rail Runner can accommodate up to 4 people (it can support about 1,200 pounds when sitting on a set of tracks) but can actually be powered by a single rider since it only weighs around 140 pounds thanks to an aluminum frame and polyurethane wheels. The base version of the Rail Runner comes with 2 seats and a price tag of $1,950 but you can add the optional ‘deck’ in the back with 2 additional seats for $135, and a sun canopy for another $165.
