I can't wait to see these cool racers flying over Earth's oceans

Concept designer Al Brady is at it again with some really cool racers with inverted cockpits—they are like flying bikes. Can you imagine yourself piloting one of these things? The sensation of speed in that position would probably cause adrenaline to overflow out of your ears and nostrils. » 6/30/14 9:40pm 6/30/14 9:40pm

What a space city would actually look like in real life

We are used to seeing space settlements in sci-fi illustrations and movies, but these are not realistic. Bryan Versteeg—from Spacehabs—uses scientific principles to develop concepts that can actually happen one day. The Kalpana One Space Settlement is one of them. Bryan has sent us new renders of this awesome place. » 6/11/14 1:02pm 6/11/14 1:02pm

If Darth Vader had a car, it would be this killer Cadillac concept

I don't like Cadillacs but I'd drive the hell out of this concept by Ondrej Jirec, a Czech student at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. If Darth Vader had a car, this would be it (although I'm sure Sark—the villain from the original Tron—would drive one too.) » 5/26/14 11:17pm 5/26/14 11:17pm

13 Concept Cars From the Past That Still Feel Like the Future

When I was a kid, I always loved it when auto show season came around, and the concept cars hit the stage. Looking at those uncommon curves felt like looking into the future, where roads twisted through the heavens and The Jetsons read like a historical document. It's funny how that feeling survives. » 5/05/14 12:45pm 5/05/14 12:45pm

I hope they build this vertical train station one day

Christopher Christophi and Lucas Mazarrasa came up with this surprising concept for the eVolo skyscraper competition: The Hyper-Speed Vertical Train Hub. I don't really know how it would work—I'm guessing superconductors and magic—but I'd love to see it built, with all those maglev trains coming up and down the tower… » 5/02/14 1:19pm 5/02/14 1:19pm

The awesome spaceship and vehicle concepts of Scott Robertson

Scott Robertson is one of my favorite concept designers of all time, a true master (both figuratively and literally). Anyone who loves science fiction and space and cars and mechs and any kind of awesome vehicle should own at least Blast and Drive. Here's a tiny sample of his extraordinary work. » 3/20/14 3:37pm 3/20/14 3:37pm

This Six-Wheeled Stroller Can Roll Up and Down Stairs

Navigating a city with a child in a stroller is hard enough, but imagine doing the same with a set of twins. Those double strollers are like driving a miniature bus, and you'll always be on the hunt for ramps, elevators, or a long way around a set of stairs. It's a problem that designer Jade Olsson may have just… » 1/10/14 7:00pm 1/10/14 7:00pm

Toshiba Crammed 5 Computers in Its Shape-Shifting Concept 5-in-1 PC

It's a concept but it's a super fun one. Toshiba's shape-shifting concept 5-in-1 PC somehow manages to be a laptop, a tablet, a convertible tablet, a canvas, and a presentation TV-type device. A few of those five might be redundant (and/or useless), but it's pretty freaking sweet to see one computer try to be… » 1/07/14 5:23pm 1/07/14 5:23pm

Let's Hope Apple's iOS 7 Music App Is Half as Clever as This Concept

If there's anything the internet has waxed poetic about wanting—nay—needing to see on the upcoming iOS 7 release, it's a general flat design overhaul. But while that's a completely valid demand, we've yet to hear too much about how Apple might address specific features in need of major functionality tuneups—until… » 6/03/13 5:13pm 6/03/13 5:13pm
