creative boats
creative boatscreative boats have extended features that make tourist friendly journeys
Boats have been the major means of transportation of humans, cattle and goods during the onsets of civilization. There have been different types of boats that were used by different civilizations. They are not the major means of transport in the modern world. But they are definitely the most eco-friendly transports that do not release harmful emissions. Today, you can find commercial boats and passenger boats. The commercial boats are exclusively meant for the commercial activities like transportation of goods, cattle or fishing. The passenger boats are meant for carrying passengers and for touring. The creative minds of the designers all over the world are at work in creating innovative boats that do not have the conventional boring look and are more efficient as a system of transport. They are equipped with additional facilities too, which make each of them pieces of wonder. Here are seven such revolutionary boats.
1. Elliptical boat

It is a common sight to see children floating paper boats in water. But it is simply surprising to think that paper can be used to make a real boat. The German designer and artist Frank Boelter created a life-size boat from Tetrapak paper, the material used for making milk cartons. It is a 30 feet long boat that has a weight of 55 pounds. 170 square meters of Tetrapak paper went into the making of this boat and it took only two hours for the designer to transform his imagination into reality. The designer says that it can sustain in water till forty days at a stretch, before finally getting drowned.
5. Iceboats

These are functional boats that resemble the sail boats. But unlike the sail boats, they are equipped with runners or skates to run on ice instead of water. These boats are often seen in ice yachting sports. The runners of these boats are made from steel and have sharp edges to cut through stubborn ice and also counteract slippages towards the sides due to the lateral wind created by the sails. If the weather is favorable and the wind is strong, some models of these boats are capable of hitting a top speed of 48 to 130 knots.
6. Guitar boat

Bishan Central Condominium
Bishan Central CondominiumBishan Central Condominium by Moshe Safdie
Created as a collaborative project for Mitsubishi Estate Asia Pte. Ltd. and CapitaLand Residential Singapore, the residential complex located in Bishan Central, Singapore is the brainchild of Moshe Safdie Architects. The upcoming condominium complex spans over an 11,997 sq m site and presents a distinctive example of urban housing in the new millennium.
Picture Gallery
Bishan Central Condominium
Bishan Central Condominium by Moshe Safdie
Two 38-storey towers in the complex will house 500 apartments making it one of Singapore's premium residential areas. The condominium looks to offer residents a new-age style of living with public gardens, private terraces and vertically-inclined greenery.
The buildings have been designed to allow each apartment an optimal orientation to receive maximum natural light without letting any heat in. Offering optimum view of the city's skyline, the condos have also been enhanced to offer maximum natural ventilation.
Three sky gardens serve as a bridge between the two towers and offer residents a unique common garden and leisure space. While the residents of the upper levels will be treated to a gorgeous view of Singapore's skyline, the families residing in the lower levels will have the lush greenery of Bishan Park as well as nearby gardens, walking paths, outdoors event spaces and swimming pools to enjoy.
The Boston, Massachusetts-based architectural firm plans to develop the site to be as urban and as modern possible without letting it seem away from nature since the buildings are being targeted as a prime residential complex. By linking the towers through sky gardens and allowing 70% of the ground-level site to be developed to provide greenery and natural scenes, the condos look to provide families with the most serene and close-to-nature home environment within city limits.
By weaving dramatic and sustainability-boosting features that optimize natural light and air, the building also helps residents save electricity and benefit from the air purified by the sky gardens, Bishan Park and the green cover provided around the site. Maximizing air movement within the building will also help combat the humidity that Singapore's tropical climate brings and helps the building adapt better to the local environment.
The project is still in the development stage and the companies hope to have the condominium ready up for sale by early 2012 with Temporary Occupation Permits up for grabs by 2015.

Amazing motorcycle concepts
Amazing motorcycle conceptsIt would be so amazing if these concepts come to life.
Bike concepts have always been something we like to drool over. We have seen our share of kick-ass bike concepts and we have also spent many hours discussing how awe-freakin-some it would be if we could own one of these in real life. However, we have reconciled our imaginations to dreams of a future when the cool tech featured in these concepts would come to life and we would have the chance to proudly own one of these futuristic bikes for ourselves. Here's our pick of the ten most astonishing bike concepts:
1. Machine Fly, the Flying Motorcycle
Machine Fly, the Flying Motorcycle
Machine Fly, the Flying MotorcycleIt has no wheels, floats above ground, and looks totally kick-ass!
It just would feel like the future if the bikes in it didn't fly! While waiting for science too develop to an extent where we would not need those awfully fussy hover pads or noisy jet packs, Gonzalo Guerrero dreamed up this gorgeous bike unimaginatively named the Machine Fly. With no wheels, this bike is totally geared for all kinds of terrain.
2. MoonRider Flying Bike
MoonRider Flying Bike
MoonRider Flying BikeThe MoonRider Flying Bike may just become reality in the far future.
Another air-borne bike concept in the list, the MoonRider Flying Bike, takes a leaf out of Lady Gaga's heel-less shoes and comes up with a penny farthing-esque frame that can be slid just above the surface of the road, though we do feel it would have been nice had the designer included something to place our feet on while riding since leaving them dangling in the air would look a bit uncouth and uncool.
3. Embrio One-Wheeled Motorcycle Concept
Embrio One-Wheeled Motorcycle Concept
Embrio One-Wheeled Motorcycle ConceptThe Embrio One-Wheeled Motorcycle Concept is designed by Bombardier.
Moving on from straight-up flyers, we have bikes that look to make the best of whatever space cramped cities of the future will be afforded by the common man and come geared with a single wheel. We don't know why its designer, who goes by the name Bombardier, chose to do away with the second wheel, but we hope he would account for the missing second wheel when pricing this one-legged Embrio Motorcycle Concept.
4. Hornet Superbike Concept
Hornet Superbike Concept
Hornet Superbike ConceptThe Hornet Superbike is a futuristic one-wheeled motorcycle concept.
Having yet another unibike concept makes us believe that the single-wheel bike fad might just prove to be an unexpected hit in the future. This one-legged beauty comes to us, courtesy designer Liam Ferguson who intends for this baby to have a hydrogen fuel-cell fitted in-wheel (producing 55 kW) powering the 6-phase Neodymium-Iron electric motor. The Hornet Superbike is intended to be a racer so you better have all your best safety equipment ready when this one debuts in showrooms.
5. Honda Club Motorcycle

Sam Jilbert's Honda Club Motorcycle concept may look unconventional at we think it is based on some unexplored principle of aerodynamics that common folks like you and I may not have even heard of. The funky looking bike is also powered by a Hydrogen Fuel Cell though it is intended to run like a regular motorcycle.
6. Axial Three Wheels Motorcycle Concept

Axial Three Wheels Motorcycle ConceptThe Axial 3 Wheels (A3W) concept is based on the KTM LC8.
We've seen our share of three-legged motorcycle concepts before but this one inspired by an in-like roller skate is a first for us. Designed by Julien Rondino, the Axial 3 Wheels (A3W) concept is apparently inspired by the KTM LC8 though we don't understand where the middle wheel would possibly figure in the scheme of the suspension's design.
7. Red Bull Motorcycle Concept

Admittedly, the Tron Legacy Light Cycle has been done to death by bike conceptors ever since the movie hit the big screen way back in 80s. But this particular model is based on the latest Tron Legacy movie and looks like something that can feasibly make it into a reality very soon.
9. Leo Motorcycle Concept
Leo Motorcycle Concept
Leo Motorcycle ConceptKnown as the Sampdesign Leo, the concept is made for long distance motorcycle rides.
Designed for long distance bike rides, this futuristic bike is actually called the Sampdesign Leo. Powered by a 10KW electric motor, the ergonomically-sound bike comes fitted with a progressive acceleration system that allows the bike to garner greater autonomy and maximize performance on the highway. However, we do think the open cabin might be bit of a safety threat.
10. Jaguar Motorcycle Concept

Innovative Folding Bike Concepts
Innovative Folding Bike ConceptsCompact Folding bikes, easy to store and carry
Folding furniture is a common sight in urban households across the globe. Given the dearth of space and also a will to live in openness has inspired technology to add a folding dimension into almost all conceivable items. The latest addition to this folding portfolio is that of folding bikes. Some of you would never want to lose sight of your beloved bike, others would not have safe parking space and yet others might want to carry it whereever they go, like a suitcase. For all these uses and more, check out the following bike innovations.
1. One – Folding bike by Thomas Owen

'One' By Thomas Owen
‘One’ By Thomas OwenPerfect for street rides and exercising
A 21st century bike, 'One' designed by Thomas Owen comes loaded with convenient features of folding the bike into a compact case and offering a good ride. It can be used for as a riding bike on the streets and exercising. It is highly recommended for people who aspire to economize on both cost and also want their dear bike to be eco-friendly. One is a futuristic product which is an easy solution to city traffic and congestion. Also, it can be folded and kept inside the house, saving the hassle of parking.
2. The Locust Bike

Locust Bike
Locust BikeDeveloped by Josef Cadek
Josef Cadek developed the Locust bike and designed it to fold up in a unique way. The two wheels of the bike have safety lock nuts and when these are released, the wheels can rotate on their axis and can be fitted inside the round frame. The handlebars too have safety lock nuts attached to the head set and when released the handlebar too can be folded. The breaks do not hamper the folding process of the bike as it has a disc break in the front portion and a clamshell break in the hind side. Not only is the bike suitable for domestic purpose or short street rides, but can be effectively used at airports, industrial areas or even city centers for quicker communication.
3. Cannondale Bike

Cannondale Bike
Cannondale Bikeurban Bike designed by Dutchman Philippe Holthuizen and Spaniard Rodrigo Clavel
Dutchman Philippe Holthuizen and Spaniard Rodrigo Clavel of the Elisava Design School in Barcelona were hired by Cannondale to design a bike that would appeal to the urban bike rider aged between 25-30 years. The main highlights of this bike are – it can be folded and easily carried on elevators with a hydraulic driving system that makes it light and easy to carry anywhere. The bike can be folded through 180 degree with the help of a central twisting tube.
4. Recumbent Folder concept

Recumbent Bike
Recumbent BikeThe recumbent bike diagram
The Recumbent concept bike is a folding bike without aesthetics or design. The creator of the bike wanted to develop a Human Powered Vehicle that could be folded and kept in any little dump place anywhere. Recumbent folders are made of chain lines that are difficult to fold. In a folding bike, the tires need to overlap each other but the chains made this task manually difficult to carry out. To solve this, hinges are offset to allow the tires to slide and fold under. The folding of the seat and handlebars is yet to be reviewed.
5. The Briefcase Bike

The Briefcase Bike
The Briefcase BikeThe bike that can be carried around like a briefcase
An Israeli designer, Gosha Galitsky, from the Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, developed the Briefcase bike. The foundation of folding bikes is that they are easy to carry anywhere you want. This demands that the bike has to be light weight and compact. The designer of the Briefcase Bike analogized the bike carrying concept with luggage carrying concept and designed and fitted a briefcase in the frame of the bike. The components of the bike can be dismantled and placed in the briefcase and pulled around like a trolley suitcase with a handle fitted at the top left corner of the suitcase.
6.The Suitcase Bike

Suitcase Bike
Suitcase BikeStroll around with your suitcase bike
The basic mechanism of the suitcase bike is similar to the Briefcase bike. Not only are their names synonyms but their features too are similar i.e. the components of this bike too can be put into the suitcase and the suitcase can be pulled around with the help of wheels. But one differentiating factor is that this version of the bike will come into production soon and will be available in the market unlike other similar models. It will cost around $400.
7. Celerity Bike

Celerity Bike
Celerity BikeThe bike with amazingly sleek and light weight body
Developing the right design for a folding bike is imperative because it is the design that will eventually render it foldable and easy to carry around. Designers try their best to create parts and components that will easily fold up using hinges and nut locks. The designers of the Celerity bike do use all these for their models, but they ensure that each part itself is sleeker and occupies even lesser space. It uses smaller tires, sleeker body frame, and stretchable rubbers to allow easy folding.

all crazy car designs
all crazy car designscrazy cars
When it comes to designing the concept cars, designers don't have to think much about the safety standards, reliability, practicality, weather, door handles, parking, engines or anything at all. All they have to do is to go into their fantasy world and make their childhood dreams come true without any restriction. The lesser the restraint, the greater is the amount of craziness that can be put into a concept car. Here are some of the craziest concept cars that have ever been made.
1. Mazda Taiki

This car made its presence first in 2007. Mazda created a strong position in the market with their blooming reputation of having the sportiest and visionary designs. Mazda Taiki is one such example of the company challenged the rules of physics. In this case, the Nagare or flow design is perfectly depicted. This car proved to be a crazy make because of its weird curves. However, this car is an ideal blueprint for the future sports cars.
2. Aurora Safety Car

This car was built of a Buick platform during the mid 1950's. This car is considered as one of the ugliest cars in the concept car designs. The design of the car was given by a priest named Father Juliano. The designer created this car with the hope that the car companies would make vehicles that proved to be safe for drivers as well as pedestrians.
3. Honda Fuya-Jo

This vehicle seems to be a hybrid of catfish, a semi truck and Doc Brown's locomotive. This cross between many things is certainly a product of a nightmare and not a dream. It is an attempt to create a cool sci-fi thing but not able to set in. This vehicle however, is another example of paramount aerodynamics.
5. BMW Gina Concept

It would be right to say that the Gina concept car is both awesome as well as creepy. The Gina concept vehicle is made from a skin-like fabric instead of the traditional sheet metal, which covers a mesh of metal bars creating the shape of a car. As the fabric is flexible, the shape of the car can be varied by altering the bars under it.

Hourglass traffic lights
Hourglass traffic lightsGives an estimate of time for waiting to the motorists
Traffic lights are found in every country and is somewhat standardized as a device with three lights having the three basic colors. However, wouldn’t it be fun and interesting to have innovative and more detailed traffic lights that would possibly convey more to the motorist apart from the usual “Stop, Ready, Go” visual instructions?! Here are six amazing designs that vary from energy-saving traffic lights to those that actually convey important information to the motorist on the drive.
1. Projected Traffic Light

Projected traffic lightA red laser curtain prevents motorists from driving past stop signals
The Projected Traffic Light is an innovative design created by Hanyoung Lee. These traffic lights lead to the formation of a “virtual wall” which is created by red-colored laser beams rushing across the road, making motorists perceive the stop command. This is a very safe traffic light device that provides an element of safety to the pedestrians for crossing the roads.

2. Droplet Traffic Light

Droplet traffic lights
Droplet traffic lightsLatest news and outdoor temperature is all provided along with the light signals
The Droplet Traffic Lights is a concept that is solar powered and would comprise of three screens through the three traffic lights that would display current information such as the latest news headlines, the weather and so on. These traffic lights are poles apart from the standard ones. However, these lights would be useful for those who are waiting for the traffic signal to turn green and is a little distracting. These eco-friendly traffic lights are nevertheless a green alternative to the dull and conventional ones.

3. LED Traffic Lights

The LED traffic lights not only save on power but can also produce their own power through solar energy by way of photovoltaic solar cells.The sign may have autonomous power supply in order to save electricity by batteries stored in solar energy. These energy efficient traffic lights are very durable and reliable.

4. Mobius strip Traffic Lights

The Mobius Strip lamp, designed by Kisung Lee, is a great way to reduce roadside clutter by integrating traffic lights with street lighting. This installation would feature pedestrian signals, vehicle signals as well as street lights. These neat strips are definitely environmental-friendly due to the strip lamp’s multiple usage.

5. Hourglass Traffic Light

Hourglass traffic lightsGives an estimate of time for waiting to the motorists
The Hourglass Traffic Lights follows the sand glass/hour glass concept by showing the same on the traffic light display. This visually alerts the motorists and pedestrians about the time they have in hand before the light changes to the next. Designed by Thanva Tivawond, this hourglass design is a very practical one.
6. UniSignal Traffic Light
UniSignal Traffic lights
UniSignal Traffic lightsTraffic lights that can be distinguished on the basis of shapes, useful for colorblind people.
When we think about traffic lights and their shape we think of the “circle”. However the UniSignal is different than the conventional round traffic lights as the shapes of each of the colored lights has been changed so as to make it easy for colorblind people to distinguish between colors.
