Ever wanted to actually physically create something that you thought up in your head, but you didn’t because you don’t have that degree in engineering or know anything about pyrotechnics? Well a U.S. based pair are not hampered by such thoughts and created the Electrobyte: Sarriugarteis (Odontochile) trilobyte vehicle (no, I don’t know what it means).
But I do know what it is, the trilobyte vehicle is an insect-like, rideable, metal contraption that has, according to boingboing.net, “[a] hand-tooled exoskeleton [that] is mounted on the drive mechanism of an old electric wheelchair. At night, undermounted blue lights give it an otherworldly glow.”
No word on whether there is a distribution deal on the trilobyte vehicle.
