TransportationBridgestone Plans To Roll Out New Airless Bicycle TiresThese are the new 'Air Free Concept' airless bicycle tires developed by Bridgestone that the company hopes to bring to the market by 2019, or approximately five months after the world ends. Whether it ends with a bang or whimper remains to be seen, but I'm hoping for a bang, preferably by a massive alien laser cannon. Design Hunters
TransportationAuction Block: Untouched 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSRHere’s the thing with classic cars: if there’s one you’re pining after from years long gone, it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ll never get one brand new. At the very least, you won’t be the one breaking it in. There are, however, extremely rare occasions where nearly untouched examples emerge and head to auction, like phoenixes rising from the ashes – which is exactly the story behind this 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR.Petrocaine

TransportationLister Knobbly Sports Racer60 year after it first raced as a competition car, Lister’s Knobbly Sports Racer is making a reappearance as a road legal vehicle. Unlike most classic car replicas, every part of this vehicle – from the aluminum body panels to the engine – features an old-school bespoke build. Under the hood of the 1950’s racing stalwart is a Jaguar 6-cylinder 3.8-liter engine that drives 330 horses through a four speed gearbox – really similar to the old D-type engines of the mid-century. This powerplant is powerful enough to send the 1,735 pound vehicle racing up to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 181 miles per hour.Petrocaine
TransportationLuke Skywalker Rebel Fighter Motorcycle HelmetHJC has a habit of making some really cool Star Wars themed motorcycle helmets – like one modeled after Boba Fett. And their latest release, while a bit of a different style, is no less cool. Called the IS-5 X-Wing Rebel Fighter, this 3/4 style skull shield is definitely the motorcycle helmet Luke Skywalker would wear.Petrocaine
TransportationTraxxas 8S X-Maxx 4WD R/C TruckThere was a time when remote controlled vehicles were wimpy little approximations of cars that could barely tool around suburban streets. But those days ended a while ago. Now, there are some pretty incredible and capable vehicles that can hit absurd speeds even on rugged terrain. Even most of those, however, don’t compare to how badass the Traxxas 8S X-Maxx truck is. Design Hunters

TransportationIf Audi Made MotorcyclesAs much as we wish they did, Audi doesn’t make a moto (unless you consider the fact that they own Ducati)… but if they did, you can be sure it’d have a flat torque curve, and silently creep across red lines! Just like this concept: the Audi R1 e-tron. Design Hunters

The oil-rich country's wealthy elite are willing to drop millions of dollars to get their hands on one. Dubai property developer Balwinder Sahni wanted a highly coveted plate bearing the number 5. He wanted it so much, he bid 33 million dirhams ($9 million) for it at a government auction earlier this month.This is the floating waterpark obstacle course that just opened in Dubai (it even spells Dubai because Dubai wants you to know its Dubai). It measures 252 feet long, 115 feet wide, and can support over 200 people at a time. Of course I am not trying to hang out with 200 people at once. You get 200 people together on a floating obstacle course at once and, odds are, somebody's gonna try to pee.

The model is designed so that the machine prints strands of hair as support structures for 3D printing. Once you’re done with the print, all you do is use the supports as individual strands of hair! A hot-air gun or a hairdryer is all you need to fix the hairstyle and you’ve got yourself an amazing print with near-real hair!Jakarta-based designer and retoucher Aditya Aryanto posed the question: what would the blocky digital creatures in Minecraft look like if they actually walked the Earth? The result is a totally absurd series of retouched photographs titled Minecraft in Real Life. Aryanto snagged several royalty-free images from Pixabay and Unsplash and Photoshopped them into the familiar cubic beings. You can see more from the series on Behance.
