Jetpacks are impractical. Jump-packs on the other hand...

Also: 3D LCD screens that work without glasses.

(Finally: This is the 8000th post on the forum.)

This might be better suited to the video games thread, but:

Jeff,

Where the heck do you find all this stuff. The Local Motors link and the LED video were amazing.

With all of the talk around the economy and all the news report you hear about people basically being idiots, sometime I forget how smart and talented people can be. There really are some amazing things going on in the engineering world and this doesn't even touch the surface.

I dunno, maybe it's just me.

the batpod shouldn't be in a section on awesome things....it should be burnt and a law passed, not letting anyone build something as stupid as that thing..

I'd like to see someone try to drive that thing with those tires ....first attempt to turn.... but is it awesome? not at all

I prefer a Bristlebot...

jmo....and not worth much either

There is only one flaw with your argument: anything associated with Batman [or used by Batman as a tool, weapon, form of transportation, or all of the above] is therefore awesome. But yes, the thing apparently has atrocious handling and is possibly one of the worst vehicles to ride ever. That still wouldn't stop me from trying to ride it down the street, cape billowing in its wake.

Oh, and Senai, I read gizmodo, popular science, engadget, ars technica, and several other tech sites daily. It's just a matter of looking in the right places to find this stuff.

Jeff

If you tried to ride it down the street, you'd end yp in a full body cast...especially if you had to turn.

So, again....call it awesome if you want , but it's still a POS

True. But I never said awesome things had to in any way be remotely safe - sort of like how the wrist-mounted flamethrower in the video below is awesome, but completely insane at the same time.
