Mini-Tank "Shredder"

Segway on steroids? Power Rangers dream come true? It's the Dual Tracked (Military Purpose) Vehicle DTV "Shredder" - part robotic workhorse, part extreme terrain-shredding "board". Made by the Canadian company BPG-Werks, this must be an ultimate blast to ride:

Awesome "Koncept Kar": Audi One

These sculpted, post-modern, post-art-deco forms were designed by Jason Battersby as a Cultural Achievement Award degree project. More photos and info here:



"The Audi One concept is designed to symbolize and promote human achievement, becoming a timeless sculpture each deserving recipient gets to keep and drive for one year at a time. Recipients would have their names engraved on one of the expressive fins... Inspired by timeless objects, the goal is to design an exterior that will stand the test of time, becoming a futuristic statement."

That giant camera, from that old movie (yes I just read it minutes ago and forgot it and I'm too lazy to go back and read the title), is actually a camera inside a "blimp". That blimp was created to "hold" the loud sound of the camera inside, so the filmsound could be recorded without the camera roaring.
