The E-Streetflyer is powered by a 750 W electric motor

When we first came across Dr Carsten Mehring's StreetFlyer in 2011, its ride was described as like hang gliding on wheels. Like a hang glider, it didn't have a motor but relied on leg power and downhill slopes to get things moving. But now a student team at the Colorado School of Mines under Mehring's supervision has strapped a motor to the three-wheeled vehicle so it can be effortlessly ridden on the flat.  Read More

Pat's Carbonator can make beer, soda and carbonated water on the go

For decades, centuries probably, folks have dreamed of a more convenient way of transporting beer on distant adventures supported by back, boat and bike. The problem is, no one was able to shrink a full serving of legit beer into a package much smaller than a 12-oz can, and 12-oz cans are bulky and heavy.

Beer is now a whole lot easier to carry ... but how does an ultra-portable, concentrated brew taste?  Read More

The Eindhoven field-lab will serve as a testing bed for the first 4D Sportsground

Some sports venues – think indoor basketball courts/ice hockey rinks – use their space to support multiple sports. LEDSSPORT's Pulastic LED Court and ASB's GlassFloor both use LEDs to redraw line marking to suit different sports, but the new 4D Sportsground being developed in The Netherlands takes the concept to the next level, delivering a sports field that seamlessly rotates between three separate surfaces. Its designers hope to develop a field that spends 24 hours a day in use.  Read More

A collaboration led by the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has announced that it's been selected to design a new waste-to-power station on the outskirts of Copenhagen. In an attempt to unify an industrial area and residential housing, the project will turn the vast roofing expanse of the power station into an Alpine ski resort. Skiers will begin their downward journey from the top of the smokestack, which will also pump out smoke rings every time a ton of carbon dioxide is produced to remind citizens of the impact of power consumption.  Read More

Dooit light weight sports trailer

Packing your favorite toys and making for the great outdoors doesn't have to mean firing up the gas-guzzling 4WD and hitching a dual-axle trailer. Light-weight trailers make sense - they save fuel, eliminate the need for roof racks and you don't need a monster truck to tow them. Designs like the Dooit sports trailer from Activity Trailers also offer a highly versatile platform that can accommodate a long list of outdoor gear - kayaks, cargo boxes, bikes - and in this case, there's even the option of a fold out tent.  Read More
