This unicorn bike mod is certainly unique if not a little strange. I think you can only take it out when you spot a rainbow though! Just kidding, but the mod does seem a little out there. It is called Horsey and it is the winner of the Seoul Cycle Design Competition 2010. It happens to be a simple kit that allows anyone to turn their roll into a gallop. It is an attachable bicycle ornament/accessory which makes one’s bicycle look horsey. It comes with wooden ornaments (horsey shape body), metal parts, and screws. It is very easy to put together.I can only see little girls or grown women who want to be little girls using it. I don’t think I’m quite taken in by this ‘Horsey’.

Its not gonna be very long before the electric vehicles are expected to stream onto the roads and people are already worried with the thought of being left stranded in the middle of nowhere if the batteries run out of charge. Don’t worry people, Zafer Sahinoglu at the Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and colleagues, think they have created a technique to avert this. They are coming up very useful, portable charging stations, which can be moved to wherever the demand for recharging is greatest. The in-car sensors keep track of charge in the battery and periodically report this to a central operations centre.

I remember zooming around on my scooter when I was younger. It was fun and convenient and gave me a much needed sense of freedom. So I’m sure your kid will really appreciate the Morgan Cycle Crystal Scooter. It is absolutely pretty and you won’t be able to keep your eyes off it.

They are a shimmering sensation to say the least. It is indeed a dream scooter and it is exclusively sold here. You can purchase it for $300. It is totally worth the price, believe me.

Now all I need to do is get a pink paint job to match the theme.

A rose in any other color wouldn’t look as good, but a BMW in pink does! Looks like Barbie’s found her dream car in this pinked version of BMW 3-Series sedan, which was spotted in Bucharest, Romania. Who have ever imagined a BMW 3-series in hot pink? We don’t know if this is the result of the vinyl wrapping method or a paint job but it does make me curious.
Biking is making quite a comeback, now that people are more health conscious and think of the environment far more. So we have an iPhone app which enables users to drop off, locate, and borrow a bike nearly anywhere. All the bikes are equipped with a GPS device which is locked to one of the wheels, and when the bike is locked, it can be located using the app, making it easy for someone to borrow it. When the bike is unlocked and in use, it doesn’t appear on the app. You no longer need docking stations with infrastructure for social biking. This makes social biking available just about everywhere. It’s all set to hit New York City this fall in beta form.

The people in UAE sure like their cars to be expensive and customized. That’s pretty obvious with this super pretty pink paint job on the Porsche 997 Carrerra.

The Carrera is equipped with an aero package that gives the car a sportier look with a rear wing and a sportier front bumper. So the car has a girly touch, but with a sporty edge. It’s perfect for someone who wants to show off her charming femininity with some spunk.
Driving is fun and a real stress-buster; but parking a car is anything but fun and a stressful job for most people (lets not get chauvinistic and intend this on women). Nissan Motor Co Ltd announced that it has developed the “Backup Collision Intervention (BCI)” system which can help drivers save their car from being collided by another on backing out of a parking lot. A car equipped with BCI system will stop when another car is approaching it from the side. This is achieved with the help of 24GHz radars installed on the right and left rear sides of a vehicle which sense a car approaching from the side.
