Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the
Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads
autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or
further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle
which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric
motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on
the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet
drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When
underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to
light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are
supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.

2011 Imperial Speeder HoverBike Concept
- - - I DID NOT CREATE THIS HOVERBIKE. Also, please try not to get involved
in the huge Creationist/Evolutionist row going on in the comment section. -
Traffic jams could soon become a thing of the past thanks to an amateur
inventor who has built the world's first flying motorcycle in his garage.
Australian Christopher Malloy ploughed his entire life-savings into the
project which took him two and a half years to complete. His futuristic
creation - dubbed the Hoverbike - can reach an altitude of 10,000ft and
speeds of over 100mph.
Fans of the design have already compared Mr Malloy's work to the 'speeder
bikes' from the Star Wars sequel Return Of The Jedi or the hovering car
from Back To The Future.
The 32-year-old former helicopter pilot built the incredible machine in his
Sydney garage using a custom-built carbon-fiber airframe and a BMW engine.
The futuristic prototype has the potential to travel up to 92 miles or for
about 45 minutes on one tank of fuel and is expected to come with a hefty
price tag of more than £45,000.
So far the bike, which weighs 270kgs, has only been tested while tethered
to the ground to prevent it flying too high. But plans to test it's
capabilities without any restrictions are set to go-ahead soon.
Mr Malloy explained: 'I am still ground testing at the moment only because
I'm not 100 per cent sure what will happen so the straps are there to cover
the unknown. I haven't had the pleasure of flying round the countryside
'It is quite stable and doesn't want to tip over but if something unplanned
happened during testing I wouldn't want to break the prototype.
'The Hoverbike was built with safety in mind so at least three components
have to fail before you might have a serious airborne failure.
'There are also two explosive parachutes attached to the airframe and of
course the rider could choose to wear their own parachute too.
Mr Malloy is unwilling to reveal exactly how much he has spent on the
project, but claims it is costing him roughly £140 a week.
He said the basic principle was similar to that of a Chinook helicopter and
a normal motorbike.
He added: 'To lift off into a hover you just need to increase the thrust
via a throttle grip with the right hand - exactly the same as the throttle
on a motorbike.
'Flying forward involves a combination of an increase in thrust and the
deflection of air from the front control vanes by twisting the left handle
grip. You twist forward to accelerate and backwards to reverse.
'To make the bike turn left and right, all one needs to do is push the
handle bars down on the side you wish to turn just like a bicycle.
'You could lean in the appropriate direction as you would on a motorbike
but this isn't proving to be very sensitive.
'Having previous experience in a helicopter or plane would be a great help.
That said, this is a new way to fly and one would need to learn to ride the
hoverbike in much the same manner as a helicopter or riding a motorcycle.
'If you live in the USA or your country has similar civil aviation
regulations, then the hoverbike will be classed as a 'ultralite' which
means you do not need a pilot's license to fly it.'

Was driving on the PCH in Malibu, when I saw Tim on this beast getting
ready for a cruise... He designed the whole thing. It's an all aluminum,
hand built body. Suspension is all original designed out of steel. 1200hp,
supercharged (obv). The front wheel is a custom machined 1 piece 2 tire
