Flamethrowing scooter fries tailgaters

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2010

These idiots who love to tailgate are so annoying. If only there was a way to back them up. Over in England, Colin Fruze has found a way to keep drivers at bay. The solution was simple and elegant. A flamethrower built into the tail of his scooter.

Anyone who dares to drive too close is flame broiled. At first, the flamethrower was installed on his BMX bike, but now it’s activated with the simple touch of a button on his scooter. The flames shoot out 12 feet behind the vehicle.

Trolley Luggage Scooter makes you the envy of kids at the airport

trolley-scooter_01Long treks through the airport suck. They are especially sucky when the long trek is done at a run so you don’t miss your flight or because you need to pee after slurping down in-flight cocktails. A new suitcase promises to get you around the terminal faster and make kids jealous.

The device is the Trolley Scooter that puts a roughly backpack size bag on a folding scooter frame. The bag is the result of a partnership with Samsonite and Micro Mobility. When unfolded you end up with a scooter that has two wheels up front and one in the rear for zipping around on.

Grab a public scooter from a lamppost

Grab a public scooter from a lamppostOkay, so you’ve been walking around all day and your feet are killing you. There must be some faster way of getting around without having to steal some dudes bike. What to do. If only you had a scooter kiosk at your disposal. You may be in luck if this idea catches on. It’s Anton Grimes’ entry into the Australian Design Awards competition and it would make life easier for those on foot.

The Link scooter system attaches to lampposts that are already there and it holds a lightweight electric scooter. It also charges it. The idea is that you encounter the lamppost, take a scooter and when you’re done, put it back at another station.

T3 Mobile Defender: The future of crowd control

T3 Mobile Defender: The future of crowd control
Sure, this scooter looks silly. And the idea that it could frighten you with a helmet wearing officer riding it seems silly as well. You would be wrong. The T3 Mobile Defender is something that should worry you. It comes equipped with a powerful non-lethal air gun that could kill you dead if it hit you in the head. So, in order to avoid such a scene, the gun is equipped with a holographic sight system that makes it super accurate.

An eyepiece shows a red target dot, which is transmitted to a monitor, then to the gun. Barry Lamperd, the creator, says that as long as the holographic sight is on target, you can’t miss. That’s easy to say from his perspective. I hope he’s right, because they plan to sell the scooter to the US Army for crowd control situations. (In Iraq? Or are they expecting us to get uppity?) Expect to see it cruising your neighborhood before too long as well.
