Honda U3-X: motorised unicycle from Japan

We love unicycles. We wish we all come to work using an unicycle. Just so we can have fun looking at each others. In August, we started the ‘Unicycle Series of Posts’ with the eniCycle: eniCycle: electric unicycle for lazy circus clowns and in September, we followed with the YikeBike: YikeBike: high wheel bicycle of the 21st century. Now, let us introduce you to the Honda U3-X! Honda presented the U3-X last month and here is what we know: the ...


YikeBike: high wheel bicycle of the 21st century

Last month, we introduced you to the eniCycle: electric unicycle for lazy circus clowns; today we want to show you the YikeBike: high wheel bicycle of the 21st century. And we are very serious about it: the YikeBike has been released at EUROBIKE on September 2, 2009 and this is a radical electric bicycle that just weighs 9.8 kilograms and folds to 67×56×12 cm to fit in a backpack. And it definitely looks like a high wheel bicycle from the Victorian era ...


Dunny Series 2009: released!

Vinyl toys. First time we actually saw one of them was 3 or 4 years ago, when Max Dana, on a cold winter morning, put on the conference table a toy from spanish designer Jaime Hayon.

Max told us a lot about those designer toys before but it was the first time she shared with us a piece of her very private collection. ...

The Nazis are harnessing the power of a dark parallel dimension called The Veil; in order to create a weapon of ...


eniCycle: electric unicycle for lazy circus clowns

Have you ever try unicycling? Bad souvenirs… But there is now a solution for the lazy circus clowns you are. Slovenian inventor Aleksander Polutnik created eniCycle, an electric unicycle operated by a self-balancing gyroscope system with an embedded processor and powered by an electric motor. This is one wheel of fun, gyroscope stabilization prevents falling forward / backward and direction steering is done by pressing on the left/right foot rest. ...


Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd

    How would you define a Geek? Do you know some Geeks? Are you a Geek yourself? We had to check so we had a look at Wikipedia > Geek and here is what we found:   – A derogatory reference to a person obsessed with intellectual pursuits for their own sake, who is also deficient in most other human attributes so as to impair the person’s smooth operation within society.   But also:   – A more recent school of thought sees Nerd as ...
