Using an electric bike instead of a car is certainly a responsible thing to do, but it may not capture everyones' imagination. Well, if you're one of those people who need a little more enticement, then you might like the Archont electro. Made by Belgrade, Serbia-based Ono Bikes, the e-bike is eye-catching, fast … and pricey.
When it comes to electric cars, there tend to be two types – those that try to look totally normal (like the Tesla Model S) and those that look ultra-futuristic (like the Aptera 2e). Tennessee-based Shockwave Motors, however, has taken another approach. The design of its three-wheeled Defiant EV3 Roadster is distinctly "classic." It's the electric car that ZZ Top might drive.
For proud owners of aging Amiga 1200s, it may seem there's little to be done about the now faded, yellowing plastic that houses these early home computers.

Smartphone cameras are increasingly taking the place of stand-alone
consumer video cameras, and in a lot of ways that makes sense. A phone,
however, isn't nearly as easy to hold onto while shooting – its screen

has the same form factor as a classic Super 8mm movie camera.
It's no secret that Star Trek fans are extremely into the technology
offered in the franchise. It's with that in mind that The Wand Company
has launched a Bluetooth replica of the Star Trek Communicator, just in
time for San Diego Comic-Con. Not only does it look just like the

Royal Enfield is going from strength to strength in 2015, overtaking Harley-Davidson in sales and growing at a remarkable rate both in India, where the brand is a revered and well-loved icon, and abroad, where Enfield's classic looks and simple, rootsy approach to motorcycling is finding favour with old-school riders and younger fashionistas alike.
