Run And Cycle At The Same Time With Halfbike

For the makers of Halfbike, it all started with a passion to optimize surroundings and an undeniable love for bicycles. “I started sketching different concepts for a simplified bike and soon reached a point where I needed to test these concepts in real life,” explained project creator Martin Angelov. “For some of the early prototypes I used old bicycles and parts I found at the attic. I was amazed how well people reacted to the idea and that made me want to keep up.” This resulted in a successful $81k+ Kickstarter funding campaign that just ended. Now the bikes are Read More

Human-Powered Helicopters: Useless And Completely Awesome

Todd Reichert and Cameron Robertson, two graduates from the University of Toronto, have done in eight years what it’s taken mankind centuries to pull off — create a human-powered air transport that works. The pair created a human-powered helicopter that operates by pedaling a bicycle-like apparatus which turns four powerful rotors, thus enabling flight. They powered a 64-second flight inside a Toronto-based sports arena. Their method of testing included plenty of crashes with the logic that you “don’t fly higher than you’re willing to fall,” they told CNN. Why do it? “It’s very easy to say something’s impossible,” Reichert explained. Read More

Bugatti MP100 Will Finally Take Flight 75 Years Later (Kinda)

Every now and then, an interesting part of history creeps back into the public eye. This week, we learned of the Bugatti Model 100P Superplane, which, in 1939, could have smashed the 469 MPH air speed record. Yes, the 900 horsepower plane, which contained two 4.9-liter, 450 HP racing engines would likely have cracked 500 MPH. Ettore Bugatti, who hated the Germans, decided to warehouse the plane while it was 85 percent done in a secret location for fear that the Nazis might learn of it. It was rediscovered shortly after the war and was sold at auction. A group Read More
