Your little one deserves a quality ATV right? Why not buy your little rugrats the Kettquad from Kettler? The German company recently unveiled this four wheeler that features pneumatic tires for off-road terrain and even a protected enclosed chain drive. Looks like a ton of fun.

Expect it to hit the US sometime this year, with your kid hitting a tree soon after. It will retail for between $800 and $1000. It’s for kids 5 to 12 years of age, so don’t let your toddler ride this thing.

Pedal-powered OLPC XO laptopNormally the OLPC XO laptop doesn’t have much power, so why not put some pedal power into it? That’s what OLPC Afghanistan has done with this prototype. It connects a hand crank to a pedal, allowing you to get some exercise and get some work done on the computer at the same time.

It may seem like it would be a nightmare to use, but for those living in that part of the world, it’s an amazingly useful alternative to frequent power outages.
