Tweeting Shoes

Even if these shoes didn’t tweet, they’d be awesome just for the fact that they brand the image of the Twitter bird. I love that little guy.

Speedy Electra Adds Sporty Electric Engine To Any Wheelchair

If you can’t move your legs, you might as well be able to look good while (not) doing it. I’m not sure if there are speeding laws for wheelchairs, but we imagine paraplegics must face the same laws as us leg-walkers. I think that’s only fair.

Futuristic Ferrari Resembles Your Favorite Childhood Toy

In the future, cars will move very, very fast. It’s a damn shame our puny little minds will never develop the reflexes and reaction time to operate them manually. So instead, we’ll just slap high tech computers to the engines that’ll automatically drive the car at intensely high speeds for us. This concept design by Iman Maghsoudi is said to ...

Swim With The Monkees

I never really thought about implementing an idea like this but thankfully, Speedo and iRiver have already done the hard work for us. The Aquabeat Waterproof MP3 player has both an appropriate name and look. It can go up to three meters underwater and has a mind-blowing 1GB of storage.
