Wind Explorer, a lightweight carbon fiber car powered by Li batteries and a portable wind turbine, recently traveled a whopping 3,000 miles across Australia with the assistance of wind power. The car used a portable wind turbine, Li-ion batteries and a giant kite that pulled the car when the wind is strong enough. The Li-ion batteries charged at night produces enough energy to travel 175 to 225 miles. The carbon fiber body with batteries and portable turbine weighs around 470 Lbs. With two average sized people,the Wind Explorer weights around 1,000 Lbs.

London based Andy Martin was asked by Thonet to design and develop a project road bicycle using their steam bending precess develop in the 1930s. Andy Martin Studio developed three designs of which the final was selected because its beauty and modest connexion within the heritage of the company.
Andy says ‘The challenge was to take on fairly low tech process of steam bending and then apply it to a 21st
century bicycle with highly complex engineering’. With the many restrictions of hand
bending the beech frame the final jointing and contours would be cut and adjusted on a cnc
machine. Andy Martin has also developed a series of connectors and sprung rods to reinforce
joints and the major stress areas in the frame.
The bike itself is a fixed wheel, which is the tradition of cycling; one has a greater connection to the
bike and the surface one rides on. The bike comes with no brakes and has several
interchangeable gear ratios. The seat is solid beech wood supported on a sprung rod supports.
The wheels, not designed by andy are carbon fibre HED H3’s.
The bike will be available in limited edition and cost £43,000
John Ryland from Classified Moto Honda KT600 came out with a new customized Honda KT600 bike. The custom 1987 Honda XL600R enduro was commissioned by actress Katee Sackhoff. The team took a 1987 Honda XL600R Enduro and added some creativeness to the mix. Swapping the entire front end for the more popular Kawasaki ZX6-R.
John Ryland says;
“We’ve swapped front ends on probably 30 bikes at this point, so that was not a big deal,” says Ryland. “Maxum Machine did the triple tree conversion. But the rear end swaps are a lot more complicated. After much deliberation, Chase Metal’s Alex Heath fabricated a boxed section onto the frame to receive the swingarm. We used modified transmission gears to allow the front sprocket to clear the big 180 rear tire.”
Just a few years ago, to fly a plane was an exceptional adventure, it still the same today but the flying technique are simplified and the price of airplane, Helicopters, Cessna and Glider flying lessons are much more affordable now. Fly experience is the perfect gift for anyone in your life who has always dreamed of flying.
With the Fighter Pilot Lead In option, your first flight will be a practice session, focusing on maneuvers like formation flight, high & low yo-yo’s, lead and lag pursuits, displacement rolls, and vertical & oblique turns.
This initial warm-up flight will help you adjust to the G-forces, and give you a chance to hone your skills before it’s time to engage in air combat.
During your second flight, it’s time to engage the enemy and put your dogfighting skills to the test! You’ll use the maneuvers you’ve learned in a variety of tactical air combat situations, and will engage in 10 dogfights. This is the ultimate civilian air combat experience!

Randy’s design brief was for a middleweight, 2-up twin. Easy enough to kick around the city and able to offer enough legs out of town. Must have: orange, black, and white for the paint. Enter the Kawasaki W650, lower the puppy at both ends, and dress the rims and hubs in a satin film of black.
Custom fitment of an SR500 tank with speedometer nestled centre front. A vintage style headlight supports the tachometer. With the air box gone, the W now breathes through K&N filters and gasses exit via a custom 2-into-2 system. A simple way to achieve an old school feel was to swap fork legs and throw the caliper on the other side. Fork internals have been modified while Ikons are helping at the rear. Custom front and rear guards encase a pair of Firestones.
Designer Joey Ruiter‘s ‘Moto Undone’ is an electric motorbike encased in a block of polished metal. Moto is an electric motorcycle inside a block of polished metal, its 1000w 48v electric hub motor will run for three hours, or around 90 miles, and runs silently.
