Patrick A Razo- Form Beyond Function | CREATURES AND CHARACTERS

Lost Boy lostboyworld.com/ Earth. The Future. Year Unknown. Population: Zero. As featured in the sci-fi film LOSTBOY, this mean-looking motorcycle concept by designer Patrick A Razo is part steampunk and part ultra-futurism! At the center of its S-shaped frame, a sort of ragbag jumble of mechanical parts, seemingly chopped from other machines.

2017 Vanderhall Venice Roadster

Venice – Vanderhall Motor Works As each iteration progressed, a desire to create something for production ensued…. 2010 Vanderhall’s first prototype was rudimentary. It had no reverse gear, was only a single-seater and was not stable in cornering situations, but was a blast to drive. The chain-driven, steel chassis was fun in a “challenging to drive” kind of way, if you didn’t mind the smell of clutch. P1 utilized a Kawasaki ZX10 motor. 2010-2011 Vanderhall’s second prototype saw major chassis improvements to the same 90” wheelbase of P1. Handling was…

Lilium – world’s first electric VTOL jet

Hill Country Adventure Rentals Lilium has successfully tested its all-electric vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) jet for the first time, and you can watch the inaugural test flight above. The basic concept of a VTOL is that it has the benefits of a helicopter in terms of taking off without requiring a huge runway, but once airborne, it can still achieve the higher top speeds of a fixed wing aircraft like a jet. Lilium is a completely new way of traveling – elegant, fast, electric. There will be a world…

THE NEED FOR SPEED

Land speed record The land speed record (or absolute land speed record) is the highest speed achieved by a person using a vehicle on land. There is no single body for validation and regulation; in practice the Category C (“Special Vehicles”) flying start regulations are used, officiated by regional or national organizations under the auspices of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile.[1] The land speed record (LSR) is standardized as the speed over a course of fixed length, averaged over two runs (commonly called “passes”).[2] Two runs are required in opposite…

BUILD A BELLY TANKER!

How Belly Tank Racers Work Hey, I’ve got an idea for something to do this weekend: How about you strap yourself inside a gas tank from a World War II fighter plane and go screaming across some salt flats at nearly 200 miles per hour (322 kilometers per hour)? C’mon man, it’ll be fun! That pretty much describes belly tank racing, a type of car racing that evolved in the 1940s and 1950s using surplus plane parts from WWII. Streaking across dry lake beds in the American West, belly tank…

The Obsessively Detailed Map of American Literature’s Most Epic Road Trips

The Obsessively Detailed Map of American Literature’s Most Epic Road Trips (Atlas Obscura) The above map is the result of a painstaking and admittedly quixotic effort to catalog the country as it has been described in the American road-tripping literature. It includes every place-name reference in 12 books about cross-country travel, from Mark Twain’s Roughing It(1872) to Cheryl Strayed’s Wild (2012), and maps the authors’ routes on top of one another. You can track an individual writer’s descriptions of the landscape as they traveled across it, or you can zoom in…
