Awesome I want to make that
Vimal Patel’s Star-Wars-inspired Lego robot rolls around, rotates its head, busts out a manipulator arm, and even deploys the 3rd leg, the oft-ignored gold standard of astrodroid recreations.http://makezine.com/2014/01/28/fully-motorized-lego-astromech-droid/

Video: dom'sfoldingbike

The Contortionist is 24-year-old Dominic Hargreaves’ entry in the UK sector’s James Dyson Awards, an international design award that “celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers.” So far he’s made the shortlist.

“The brief I set myself was to create a folding bike where all the parts fit in between the circumference of its 26-inch wheels when it is folded up. Once folded, the bike cannot fold back on itsself while riding. The wheels rotate when folded up so the folded package can be wheeled along rather having to be carried.”

The result is a bike that folds down to a size similar to that of a collapsible wheelchair and can be dragged along behind, as the video demonstrates.

What’s more, the bike doesn’t have a chain that can foul or leave grease on clothes or skin. Rather, this prototype will feature an internal hydraulic system that uses oil pumped through tubes in the frame to power the back wheel. And being a full-size bike (26-inch wheels) the ride is designed to feel similar to a regular bike. Hargreaves says it can even be taken off-road, hence its mountain bike tires and aluminum frame.

To help it fold the front and back wheels are slightly offset which Hargreaves says doesn’t affect the ride of the bike.

The inspiration was that the current range of folding bikes on the market seemed to be too much of a compromise, or just didn't fold small enough for day-to-day use on public transport.

Hargreaves says he has been approached by strangers who tell him how good the unfolded bike looks and are surprised when they find out he designed it himself. He says they’re even more surprised when he shows them how quickly and small it folds down.
