The Motorcycle for Modern Times

With a James Bond-like finesse and class, the BMW Motorrad Vision Next 100 takes motorcycling straight into the future. Riders can expect glasses instead of a helmet and a black riding suit so they can “feel” the road. Plus, the rider can stop without taking a foot off the frame because the cycle is self-balancing. A futuristic two-wheeler, BMW says it will protect riders from any accidents. This is astonishing because riders skip the helmet. Riders can expect total freedom to feel the thrill of the road because the cycle’s digital companion ensures the utmost in safety. BMW says this cycle, “catapults you into the 40s of the 21st century,” with high class, freedom and style.

An All Electric Printed Minivan

Honda and Kabuki have 3D printed an electric shortbread delivery van. Yes, that’s right. This minivan features micro EV technology. The prime cargo of the van is Hato Sable (Japanese shortbread), and the van was developed based on a variable design platform. Designers used Honda’s lightweight pipe-frame structure for the chassis, but they produced the body panels and luggage space with a 3D printer. Amazingly, it’s capable of speeds up to 43MPH and can go a long 50 miles. Only one driver fits in the micro EV because it was built to carry lots of sweet, delicious treats: dove-shaped shortbread. This is perhaps the largest product ever produced using 3D technology, and we’re sure it won’t be the last.
