The Tern BYB Bike Rides Big & Folds Small

The BYB bike ($2,500) isn’t just a folding bike—it’s a whole new way to fold a bike. It’s 30% smaller than traditional 20″ folding bikes, and folds small and slim enough to fit conveniently into lockers, closets, or any narrow space.

When folded, the BYB has one of the smallest footprints of any folding bike. That means a much easier time maneuvering it onto crowded trains and buses or when navigating through busy subway stations.

The BYB stands on its rack, and its built-in spinner wheels let you trolley the bike with one hand while the other holds your coffee.

The BYB delivers with a frame engineered for stiffness, larger 20″ wheels, and performance components.

The slim, small BYB fits just about anywhere—behind doors, under desks, in your closet. In fact, the BYB is a perfect fit for standard cabinets so whether you’ve got one, or more, the BYB will occupy minimal space in your place.

The Lexus SLIDE Hoverboard

Luxury car company Lexus has just released this new video for SLIDE, a Hoverboard they have developed that uses magnetic levitation and nitrogen-cooled superconductors to float above the ground.

Creating SLIDE required re-engineering core technologies and uncovering true technical innovations. From assembling maglev technology into a board, to finding the right combination of superconductors, magnets and liquid nitrogen – every step pushed the team to stretch the possibilities of technology.

The hoverboard is constructed from an insulated core, containing HTSLs (high temperature superconducting blocks). These are housed in cryostats – reservoirs of liquid nitrogen that cool the superconductors to -197°C. The board is then placed above a track containing permanent magnets. When the board is cooled to its operating temperature the track’s magnetic flux lines are ‘pinned’ into place, maintaining the hover height of the board.

Gidget Retro Camper

The Gidget Retro Camper was created by an Australian developer and contains a Queen size bed, a television entertainment set and sink with refrigerators. Some models even include showers with hot water. It’s powered by solar panels.

The rear camper shell can double as an overhang that will provide some shade in the sun, or some shelter in the rain, for whoever ends up cooking out back.  If you’re camping somewhere windy, there’s even an accessory windshield that isn’t featured in the video, but is available to protect whatever you end up cooking up on the stove top.

Best of all, it won’t break the bank. While the average brand new RV costs over $100,000, the Gidget is only $15,000.
