Showcase the good times as vehicles styled out of old beer cans

Booze and cruise don't mix- a caution that is universal for alcohol consumers. Driving cars after alcohol consumption may be a hazardous combination but apparently we've stumbled upon an exception where boozing and driving are ay-okay! Don't get your hopes too high though for the expression is more figurative than pragmatic. The consequence of boozing is not only stupor but also a lot of cans, colorful and attractive cans which are even more alluring when full. Nonetheless, empty cans have been given a second lease of exhibition here as they are deftly crafted into crackerjack looking vehicle models. So now you can display the "aggregation of good times" with pals and family in the shape of handcrafted vehicle models.

Virgin Scooter to enjoy an electrifying ride

The world is going electric when it comes to answering transportation needs. People are looking out for reliable forms of transportation that are efficient as well as practical. Keeping all this in mind, designer Mikael Shevelkin has come up with a lightweight two-wheel ride named Virgin Scooter designed especially for the Virgin Brand.

Virgin Scooter is an easy to maintain ride that will be perfect for going shopping, work, short trips around the city and will fulfill general transportation needs. The small sized scooter will not fall down on the comfort graph and is easy to operate as well as maintain. It can be used by one person at a time to move from one place to the other without depending on public transport. The electric ride comes embedded with two taillights, one placed on the rear fender and the other under the seat that increases visibility when dusk sets in. It comes complete with turn signals wedged in the fenders to let others know which way you are heading.

Lights slither out of the fender when switched on, which in turn brightens up a good amount area on the road. The steering has a very interesting shape, inspiration of which has been fetched from the natural steering of a horse. No electric ride is complete without a battery pack. This has been used well to come up with a battery pack that can be detached from the underside of the scooter, which can be rolled on wheels and kept at a safe place when not in use, to make sure it is not stolen. It will also prove to be helpful in case the power outlet is at some place where the scooter cannot reach. Virgin Scooter is very pleasant to look at which will win hearts with its functionality and compact design.

[Cheers Mikael]
