steampunk 470x485 13 Crazy Segway Mods


Ultra light (only 240 kgs!) urban transporter - seats 3 and you steer it with a joystick. The driver steps in through the windshield-door and the passengers through the rear window-door. This fourwheeler runs 120 to 150 kms at 45 or (faster version) 70 km/h, is very manoeuvrable and spins around its own axe. It triples its range heating the air with 0.5 l/100 km of liquid fuel. KLM has ordered and is testing two. The Airpod is ideal for large companies' fleet, postal and delivery services, or borrow-a-car shortrental projects in cities. The projected price is € 6 to 7000, filling up the 260 liter tank at 248 bar takes 2 minutes at a filling station, or 4 hours at an electrical socket (18 kW, app €4). On the marketlate 2012. Certified for the whole of Europe.
Options: panoramic roof, hifi, carbon body in stead of polyester, ..

Airpod KLM

All models have a polyester body and can double or even triple their range by heating the air by means of a tiny burner that kicks in automatically at the speed of 50 km/h, using a small amount of liquid fuel.
All cars are equipped with an engine that, in reversed mode, fills its own air tank when connected to an electrical socket.
All vehicles have air conditioning, heating, ventilation and wind shield wipers.

The Di Pietro Motor (Rotary Air Engine)
The Di Pietro motor concept is based on a rotary piston. Different from existing rotary engines, the Di Pietro motor uses a simple cylindrical rotary piston (shaft driver) which rolls, without any friction, inside the cylindrical stator. The space between stator and shaft driver is divided in 6 expansion chambers by pivoting dividers. These dividers follow the motion of the shaft driver as it rolls around the stator wall. The motor shown is effectively a 6 cylinder expansion motor.

How it Works
The cylindrical shaft driver, forced by the air pressure on its outer wall, moves eccentrically, thereby driving the motor shaft by means of two rolling elements mounted on bearings on the shaft. The rolling motion of the shaft driver inside the stator is cushioned by a thin film of air. Timing and duration of the air inlet and exhaust is governed by a slotted timer which is mounted on the output shaft and rotates at the same speed as the motor. 


Elegant simplicity!
Of all the ideas in this posting the Hover Shoes have the most potential to totally revolutionize the world's personal transportation. Just slip on your Hover Shoes in the morning and away you go, all day, zero fatigue. All this genius out of a two-car suburban garage in Bakersfield, California. And here is the best bit. If you are the slightest bit handy, you can actually make them yourself. The nerd inventor will get the Nobel Prize. Just follow his video. Elegant simplicity!
