Beautiful Custom Motorbike Is Actually A 360-Degree Security Camera

This gorgeous custom motorbike began its life as an utterly mundane Honda P25, a fuel-efficient 1960s scooter. But motorcycle artisan Chicara Nagata turned it into a sweeping sculpture with a social-commentary twist: the tiny bike carries four infrared security cameras in its frame, built at the behest of a Japanese security company.


Aussie Company Sets Out To Make A Better 'Adult' Scooter

Never been much into scooters, though I blame a close encounter with the pavement on my very first attempt to ride a skateboard for that. No matter, us “feet-walkers” can still appreciate good industrial design. Take IlIum Corporation’s “E’lution” scooters, which it’s trying to push into full production via a Kickstarter campaign.


This Diesel-Powered Scooter Packs More Utility Than A Swiss Army Knife

If I started telling you about a new all-wheel-drive, turbo diesel-powered off-roader, you’d probably think I was talking about a 4×4 truck or SUV, right? Wrong. Check out the RNT, a concept from Indian motorcycle company Hero that could be the only back-country survival tool a motorcycle adventurer would ever need.


Can't Choose Between Biking Or Roller Blading? Now You Don't Have To

The Segway opened the floodgates for countless personal mobility devices, with designs that range from conservative to downright crazy. And the Aeyo — a cross between a scooter, a bicycle, and a pair of inline skates — falls somewhere in the middle of that scale.

An Audi You Can Give As A Pre-School Graduation Gift

Before you scoff in disbelief at the $450 price tag on this adorable children’s toy, remember that you’re actually getting two ride-ons for the price of one here. The Mini Runner, made from a hydroformed lightweight aluminium frame, converts from a sit down balance bike to a standing scooter with minimal fuss and muss.


This Super-Cool Scooter Is Made From... Hemp?

This sweet little electric scooter hits 30mph in seven seconds, has an 80km range and is made from… hemp? Its sleek, modern looks belie the fact that this two-wheeled runaround is made from the hippiest of materials: hemp and flax fibres, bound together with a biologically derived resin.


Watch This Electric Mobility Scooter Beat A Nissan Skyline In A Drag Race

Dust off those racing helmets, folks: your gran and grandad need them.


Retractable Bike Scooter: A Delightfully Dangerous Bonding Opportunity

Unless you’re riding a tandem, bicycles aren’t really designed for two passengers. You can jam a child seat on the back for infants, or a couple of pegs on the back wheel to carry a friend, but neither of those solutions seem as novel or original as Jared Loveless’s scooteRack: a rear-mounted retractable scooter that serves as a trailer for passengers.


Turn Boring Stools Into A Pint-Sized Scooter With This Brilliant IKEA Hack

IKEA’s furniture isn’t just cheap and easy to transport, it’s easy to hack too, with sites like IKEA Hackers showcasing some of the best modifications.
