As you see in the photos, it's a tadpole trike, in which the single wheel is in the rear. A steering linkage system allows the two front wheels to pivot together. Rungu was developed by a father-and-son team who experienced first-hand how difficult it can be to traverse on sandy paths on typical trikes, especially if you’re carrying something large or heavy, like a surfboard. Two designs are available: the Juggernaut, which comes built with three fat 26 x 4.7-inch tires, and the Kilimanjarom which has the fat tire at the back and skinnier 29 x 2.5-inch tires in the front. It is priced starting at US$2,500.

This re-entry suit designed by Bulgarian artist dfacto, an astronaut abandons his doomed craft and returns to earth. Perhaps NASA has similar things in mind, but this is just a wishful concept. Good idea! "Watching the Felix Baumgartner jump was one of the highlights of the year for me. I was really blown away, and this is my homage to that moment: a theoretical look at what advances his jump could bring for space exploration and astronaut survivability. In this case it's a specialized hardened suit that can allow for re-entry from low earth orbit. Not a jump you want to make, but when you have to you'll want to be wearing this suit."
