The lightweight, carbon fiber body gives the Lucra a curb weight of less than 2,000 pounds, and with the option to choose from an AMG 6.3 liter V8, 6.3 liter LS3 or 7.0 liter LS7, you can expect north of 600 horsepower. The transmission options include your choice of a 7-speed Mercedes paddle shift or a standard Tremec TKO 5-speed. What do all of these stats amount to? Well the entry level setup will get you a zero to sixty time of around 2.7 seconds, a 10.1 second 1/4 mile, and a top speed upwards of 200 mph. The vehicle has also been equipped with a set of Willwood brakes for precision stopping power, and a fully adjustable suspension for optimum handling. All of this, and it’s still street legal.
While electric bike concepts have become quite popular, we have yet to see anything quite like this. Teaming up with BASF, the German designers at Ding3000 created this beauty. The electric bike has been outfitted with a 250W hub motor that not only assists the rider, but also illuminates the LED lights built into the frame (great for night time riding). The battery pack is built right into the seat, so when you park it, simply remove the seat to prevent thefts from riding away on your 2 wheeled companion. This also makes for easy charging. The bike itself is made from ultra lightweight carbon fiber along with a high tech compound constructed seat and tires that create a smooth ride for the user.
Packed with 21 horsepower and 30 lb-ft of torque, the two permanent magnet synchronous motors pump power to the tracks, helping this 460 pound machine tear through the powder at speeds of up 22 miles per hour. Thanks to the integrated battery pack, the Der Ziesel can provide anywhere from 4 to 5 hours of drive time, all of which is controlled through the joystick located on the armrest of the vehicle.
Google is launching balloons into near space to provide internet access to buildings below on the ground.

Mango may be a case for mothers who work from home and are forced to multitask (allows you to support him on the shoulder as a landline) for those who constantly use their iPhone at home – the housing design is so thought to support the mass and vertical and horizontal at an angle of 15 or 55 degrees for optimal viewing angles as good.
Bridges perform a basic but essential function: getting us from one side to the other. These bridges concepts stretch beyond the boundaries of traditional design, creating bridges that are multi-purpose or simply astonishingly unusual.
With a density of just 0.9 mg/cm3 the material is around 100 times lighter than Styrofoam and lighter than the “multiwalled carbon nanotube (MCNT) aerogel” – also dubbed “frozen smoke” – with a density of 4 mg/cm3 that we looked at earlier this year.
Allure of the Seas is a few inches longer than her older sister-ship Oasis of the Seas, and it’s the second of Royal Caribbean’s world-changing Oasis-class ships.
