Kuniako Saito, a Japanese engineer, has just invented a new way to travel: A transporter called a “WalkCar” that’s small, light and apparently easy to use. The WalkCar is battery powered and is about the size of a laptop. And although it looks like it can’t hold much weight and is made from aluminum, it can apparently have as much as 265 lbs on board.

Dean Kamen Developing Amazing Eco Hybrid

Eco burner

Dean Kamen – the multimillionaire inventor behind the Segway personal transporter – is well down the road in the development of a new bike that combines electric power and a radical generator which will allow it to burn almost any fuel.

Built around a fairly conventional battery and electric motor combination to provide the drive to the wheel, something Kamen’s experience with the much-hyped Segway makes relatively easy, the radical part of the design is the inclusion of a Stirling engine to recharge the bike’s battery pack. Based on technology that pre-dates the internal combustion engine by nearly a century, the Stirling engine is closer in concept to a steam engine, using external combustion, and without the need for a fuel that can be injected and burned incredibly fast inside a normal engine’s combustion chamber, it can run on virtually anything that burns – opening the door to easily renewable fuels rather than relying on dwindling fossil fuel supplies…

He fantasizes a car powered by magnetic field generated by on-board electricity powered systems. (Pics)

Crazy Segway mod

This awesome Segway mod has a High Definition Television (HDTV) on its regular model. As great as it is to have a TV in place, I could also see it as the pimped out model for the employees above. Now, instead of just coupons, they could drive towards you with a commercial and theme song playing. Second video after the jump.
