DailyDirt: Cool Vehicles That You Can't Drive
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
The popular modes of transportation we have today might not be the same in a few decades. Obviously, there will be more Hyundais and Kias on the roads, but there are plenty of other concept vehicles that don't make it to the auto shows. Here are a few interesting links that look cooler than a Volt or Leaf.
Hybrid air vehicles might look like Zeppelins, but they don't need special runways to land/takeoff. The US military has invested in them, apparently, but mainly as a surveillance ship.

[url] If you're going to add a Segway mechanism to a car, this concept car looks like the way to do it. Make the two rear wheels into detachable personal motorbikes. [url] There's a pretty big picture of almost all the different Batmobiles with wheels. Given that many changes, Batman's ride probably never lasted long enough for an oil change. [url]
