Well, the entries have been vetted and voted on, and they’ve put them into a nice gallery for you. They’re pretty awesome — kind of like the stuff I used to draw in school, but… you know, better. Here are the top 3 cool gadgets for men (more at Local Motors):

Kawasaki Synergy concept race bike

23 Mar

The Kawasaki Synergy concept bike seems to be a race bike designed by transport design Coventry University designer Piers Prendergast who reveals its sustainable concept bike. This ecologically conscious race bike is a zero emission replica which is powered by hydrogen fuel cells.

This green bike is designed to change the vision of traditional environmentally friendly bikes. The cunning design includes its angular bodywork making it look like a sporty model and advanced hubless wheels to make it a real stunner while its driving range is almost 150 miles. How cool such gadgets for men!

This is expected to be a like sport bike with performance of 125cc to 250cc thanks to its 5kW fuel cells. Its up to date wheels operate through a strongly positioned inner rim as well as spinning outer rim which rotates on internal bearings.

Mostly the rear wheel works as a huge bearing while the tire is fixed to the outer rim. As electromagnet rotates the outer rim, its center remains unchanged. The electromagnet is also capable of regaining some power via regenerative braking. Compressed hydrogen fuel cylinders are positioned in the fuel tank.

The Ultimate Motorcycle Side Car for Men

23 Mar

apparently some dude (François Knorreck) spent 10 years, 10,000 work hours and 15,000 Euros building the Snaefell, a motorcycle with the ultimate side car.  I was sort of hoping that the bike could detach from the side car and be independently propelled, but as you can see from the overhead shot it’s one complete body; a Unibody (wink) of sorts.  I have to question how well it handles, but considering its uniqueness does it really matter? isn’t the best gadgets for men?
