It looks like something I’ve seen on South Park. And that’s all I’m saying about that! The claim is that it’s a cross between a skateboard and a motorbike. I guess that makes sense. At some point a person actually rode around the room on/in it and I must say it looks interesting and even fun. The top speed is 30 MPH so no highway driving!
You better have good balance, however. I’m sure this must be good exercise.
Another vehicle best used for entertainment is the Bionic Dolphin. This one can hold two people for on and under the water fun and the idea is to be able to “swim” like a dolphin. This is an intriguing idea and worth investigating. Imagine filming from this vehicle so you convey the POV of a fish or sea mammal as it navigates the water. Cool beans!

It features a motorcycle that uses a combination of electric and vegetable oil to power it. The fun of this show and the adventure therein are looking for any strange fuels can they find to use on their road trip. That looks like a mighty heavy bike.
These sorts of experimental designs help push the envelope. And maybe someday mom really Will be shopping using a renewable resource vehicle. And that will be a good thing!

This is good for farmers and good for reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
According to GM there’s 900 E85 Fueling Stations already providing a place to “gas up” for the more than two million Flex Fuel cars out on the road. These cars come in a variety of models including Impala, Chevy Tahoe, Monte Carlo, Sierra and Silerado. I doubt they come painted yellow and green, but maybe you wouldn’t want a car that stuck out like an ear of corn in your driveway.
Check out the GM web site to learn more about corn and find links of groups across the United States which encourage this technology in their area. I can’t tell you how often my mother recites her mantra, “WHY don’t they use corn?????” Well, I guess I can tell her, THEY DO!!!!
Here’s the list of features that make a hybrid efficient:
