First Zero-Gravity Wedding

Leave it to New Yorkers to one up the rest of America. Noah Fulmore and Erin Finnegan dropped more than $16,000 on a wedding in a zero-G plane. A 90 minute ride full of dives and twists allowed the happy couple to say “I do” entirely upside down. Too cool. Link

So to keep things fresh, the latest incarnation of the franchise, titled Tony Hawk RIDE, will feature an actual skateboard controller. See it down there? With all the buttons on the side? How the fuck is this thing going to ...

IPSVM Is A Dizzying Design

Can you imagine skateboarding on this design Loren Kulesus has created without falling through it or snapping it in half? If it weren’t just a concept maybe you’d actually get a go at riding it. Though, I strongly advise against it. Notice the numerous amount of holes in it? Yea, this thing is lacking some good old-fashioned solidness. I bet ...

“Is That Rob Halford?”

Straight out of the cover of a Judas Priest album, this “thing” looks to be a steampunk steed from Hell. Dubbed “Lrry,” it’s a rideable motorcycle/robo-horse constructed by the Mutoid Waste Company in London. The best part about it is it’s 100% recycled. Biker gangs will be running for the hills.

Can’t Ride? Sit

Supporting the Obama campaign can be tiring, unless you build your own stool out of the handlebars from your bike. Then of course, you’d ride your bike with no handlebars. Spotted on Make, Flickr user Xnedski found this Obama supporter carrying bike handlebars. As you can see, this man carries his handlebar stool everywhere. It beats wearing a garbage bag ...

Nissan’s New Bot Prevents Collisions

Thanks to Nissan’s Biomimetic Robot Car (BR23C), crash test dummies could find themselves out of a job. Having been compared to R2-D2 (but bearing no resemblance whatsoever), the BR23C will not maintain your car like a mechanic would, rather, it will play the part of backseat driver. The robot is the “poster-bot” for Nissan’s new crash prevention technology. Drawing upon ...

Dirtsurfer Freestyle BMX Skateboard For The X-Treme

We’ve seen a skateboard mixed with a surfboard today, but how about a skateboard mixed with BMX? The Dirtsurfer Freestyle is just that: it’s got the speed of a freestyle BMX with the agility of a skateboard. Speed is controlled via a brake which is a simple lever-activated disk brake mounted on the rear wheel. Simply lean backwards and you’ll ...

Guantnamo Theme At Coney Island Is Frightening

Have you been to Coney Island lately? It’s the prime spot for carny games and funnel cake. Now, it’s got even more appeal, with robots acting out the infamous torture technique of waterboarding. It’ll have you running in terror as if you’re being chased by a creepy old man bot. Artist Steve Powers opened the Waterboard Thrill Ride on West ...

A Bike Design That Predates The Company Producing It

What a sweet ride! The Rasmus Gjesing ATB Tourist bicycle is the work of, you guessed it: Rasmus Gjesing. Gjesing’s company was founded 12 years ago and focuses on quality and design that tries to steer clear of the look of mass-produced bicycles. With the ATB, everyone may think you’re riding an old bike, but that top-of-the-line Motorola MP3 helmet ...
