Colin Furze has invented a flame-throwing scooter, it works by pressing a button on the handlebar.
dailymail writes: 'It's a lot of fun and firing the flames makes me feel like James Bond,' said the plumber, 30, from Stamford in Lincolnshire. 'The flames are pretty big and up to 15ft long so you could definitely set fire to someone's car if you wanted to.'
'The only problem is it can get rather hot if you are riding the moped and blast the flames when the wind is in the wrong direction.'

This tour bus owned by a German tour company features a six-foot-long bed for each of its passengers, though each bunk is only about 3 feet wide by 3 feet high. There is a bathroom on the bus, but no, there are no shower or bathing facilities. Want to go to Africa when you sleeping?
Jalopnik wirtes "The company is called Rotel Tours (the word is a portmanteau of "rolling" and "hotel") and it has, unbelieveably, been hosting bus-bed tours of Europe, Asia, and Africa since 1959. It was founded in 1945 by a man named — we are not making this up — George Hötel. His firm's buses cater almost exclusively to German tourists; in the past fifty years, they have done everything from crossing the Sahara desert to traversing Mongolia and Vietnam. "

The 1988 Volkswagen Scirocco will be driven from Manchester to London powered only by roasted coffee granules. The pic click 2 enlarge!

"It has been built by a team from the BBC1 science programme Bang Goes The Theory and will go on display at the Big Bang science fair in Manchester to show how fuels other than conventional petrol and diesel can power vehicles.
The team calculates the Carpuccino will do three miles per kilo of ground coffee - the equivalent of about 56 espressos per mile.
The journey will use about 70 kilos of ground coffee which, at supermarket prices of between £13 and £26 a kilo depending on brand and quality, will cost between £910 and £1,820, or between 25 and 50 times the £36 cost of petrol for the journey." dailymail said.

Car  |  Transportation
This Flying Hovercraft is a "wing in ground effective vehicle" by Rudy Heeman of Nelson, New Zealand. He has developed a hovercraft that can fly and could be used as boat or land vehicle. Mr Heeman spent 11 years, and made in the inventor’s garage, this hovercraft is crafted while using various parts from other vehicles like scooters, BBQs, and junked cars. The hoverwing sets off like a normal-hovercraft but when it reaches top speed of 60mph, its wings can be extended and it takes flight. This machine has a 1.8 liter Subaru engine which allows for a maximum of 225 kilometers and its wings are removable. When in flight, this machine can carry only two people or 160 kg, but in hovercraft mode the capacity increases to three people. The maximum altitude of this Flying Hovercraft is around 3 meters.

Honda 3RC Concept
Car  |  Concept
Honda 3R-C is a fully single-seat three-wheeler  powered by a lithium ion battery, created by Honda's Milan studio. It will debut at Geneva International Motor Show 2010.
The 3R-C has a clear canopy that covers the driver's seat while it is parked and not in use. When 3R-C vehicle is in motion, the canopy becomes an enveloping wind-shield that provides the pilot, who sits low in the vehicle, with significant protection from the bodywork and doors.
The high sides of the safety shell seat give greater safety to the occupant, reducing the threat from side impacts and improving weather protection. In front of the driver is a lockable boot area, which gives significant secure storage for luggage or other items. The 3R-C's designers created a flexible cover that surrounds the upper torso to reduce exposure to bad weather and improving comfort.

It’s another breed of EB brand, a mid engined V6 Supercharged 4.8L. The whole lighting system in this car is based on hi-bright LEDs with Neon back lights in the front. The tail-lights in EB-48S have 3 sections which their lights changes between three common colors(Red,Orange and white) continuously depending on the conditions. For example in day-light if the driver turn on the turn-indicator the whole tail-light flashes with the orange LED and if he brakes while turning two sections out of three turn red. In other words the tail-lights are prioritized, maximizing the amount of awareness for other drivers.

After owning a mobile phone company, an airline company, a Caribbean island and some luxury restaurants, billionaire Sir Richard Branson’s latest possession is an underwater plane dubbed the Necker Nymph. It can dive to depths of up to 130ft, Richard hopes to one day explore depths of 35,000ft, and it will cost Branson around 415,000 British pounds.
The Necker Nymph is is relatively small and can carry just three people, one pilot and two passengers.The luxury sub has fighter jet technology and is piloted with a joystick. While most subs use ballast to propel subs under the water, the Nymph uses downward 'lift' on the wings to fly down. It was designed and built by Graham Hawkes.

Allert Jacob has turned his 100+ MPG(miles per gallon) Honda(Honda ANF125i Innova, picture below) into a 200+ MPG low-CD streamliner. Wow! Despite the modifications an extra 88lbs to the bike, it it still manages to eke out more miles per gallon, cool!
"The modified motorbike weights 319lbs (about 88lbs more than the standard bike). The engine is a fuel injected, four stroke, 125cc single, producing 9 hp (6.85 kW). A realistic figure of real-world MPG for the unmodified bike is around 114 MPG (though Allert got a 133 MPG average while babying it).
The modified bike, despite weighting 88lbs more than the unmodified version, gets over 200 MPG in real world driving (214 MPG during a trip in rather cold and windy weather, but more is expected in better conditions). This shows how important aerodynamics is for fuel economy. Sometimes it can be better to add a bit of weight if it's going to make the vehicle more slippery (and the benefits can be compounded by using taller gearing in the transmission; since you need less energy to push against air resistance, you can use gears that keep the engine at a lower RPM).

Yuneec offers a two-seat electric-powered aircraft, the e430. And the best part, it will be ready to buy next year(2011)! If the company delivers on its promise, this electrically powered plane could change the world, costing just two dollars per hour to power its flight. Priced around $89,000.
"Electric flight, once seen as futuristic, has arrived and with E430’s flight times of between 1.5 and 3 hours (depending on configuration) electric flight now becomes a realistic power source for sport aviation. Charging times of 3 hours for as little as $5 make electric a really low cost way to fly and with only 2 main moving parts in the motor (the bearings) the reliability and maintenance are like nothing seen before."
