If this is the future of #Chinese cars, I'm ready. #china #electriccar #ev #LeEco #LeSEE
Faraday Future's marquee investor builds an electric car of its own. And it's amazing.

My personal favorite is #Canada's amazing #Helix  #bicycle . 
Our favourite pedal-powered machines, from a bike that folds to the size of one of its wheels to a recumbent cargo hauler with a very big appetite.

"It is not difficult to imagine scenarios in which owning an EcoReco M3 makes good sense. Short-distance #commuters could use the #scooter to eliminate car-park charges, rail commuters could zip from home to station and station to office, tourists could travel with the scooter to explore destination cities."
“How do I look?” I ask the woman who manages the office car park as I hum by on the EcoReco M3, a matte-black, $999 motorised kick scooter. And in the uncomfortable split second before she says “real cool”, I hear the truth. And that truth, to my chagrin, is not entirely flattering.

Who will be the first to 300mph? #Bugatti? #Koenigsegg? #Hennessey?
On foot or on horseback, in planes or in cars, the need for speed – to cross the line first, to outrun all who have come before – seems hard-wired into humans.
