Solowheel electric unicycle is a personal transportation device that is more compact than any folding bicycle. Powered by 1000 watt motor, $1500 Solowheel consists of gyro sensors, two foldable foot platforms, and a battery. It weighs only 20 pounds, has a top speed of 12 mph, and can travel 12 miles on a single charge. Check out more info on this revolutionary transportation machine found here.
(You’re speakers are not broke, there is just no audio for this video for some reason.)

Well I guess I wouldn’t really have much use for it since I am not a fireman, but driving around town hosing down my friends, sending them into a brick wall would be pretty enjoyable too, and that is why I want it, don’t judge me. In purely concept form right now, the Amatova ATV, from designer Liam Ferguson, gives us a vision into what first-line fire-fighting could look like in the near future. More like something out of the ‘Terminator’ series than out of your local firehouse, the Amatova houses 2 passengers in a high-visibility cockpit and can liquid Howitzer its 500 gallons of water from the Remotely Operated Suppression Cannon Outfit (ROSCO).
The Amatoya also protects its own passengers with clear aerogel laminated insulation in the 360 view windows and the body, a temp sensitive spray down system, military-grade thermo ceramic paint, and a beefy diesel engine to propel the futuristic craft both in and out of hot situations. The piece de resistance is the Back to the Future homage gull-wing doors. Who says emergency services can’t be stylish? More info on the project found here.
Well it’s actually called Canna Cola and it is being released this month in Colorado and son California. Canna Cola is a line of THC-enriched sodas to be sold at medical marijuana dispensaries. Flavors include: DocWeed, Orange Kush, Grape Ape, Sour Diesel, and the classic Canna Cola. Now I don’t smoke weed, so I don’t necessarily “want” this, but I’m sure there are a lot of zoot readers that are going to be putting this on their wish list.
You’ve heard it before: Ruckus Juice, Mule Kick, Hillbilly Pop, Mountain Dew — the nicknames for moonshine, an often misunderstood spirit of Appalachian heritage. But just like your personal tastes, moonshine has also done its fair share of growing up, thanks to modern craft distillers. Now, the high-proof corn whiskey is not only legally available, but delicious to boot. And yes, it still packs a mighty wallop. Take Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine ($25+) for instance. The family company, based in Gatlinburg, TN follows centuries old secret recipes to create a superior moonshine using local ingredients from East Tennessee farms. Their 100 proof shine is even available with batch soaked cherries and sold in mason jars. Yee-haw, indeed. You can buy it here for just $25.
Pushing the limits of the terms “4G” and “world’s most powerful” is the new Motorola Atrix 4G ($TBA). Running Android 2.2 and packing a host of high-end features like a 1 GHz dual-core processor, a “qHD” 960 x 540 screen, 1 GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD slot for expansion, HSPA+, front- and rear-facing cameras, HD video capture, a biometric fingerprint reader for secure access, dual mics for noise-reduction, 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi 802.11n support, and a 1930 mAh battery, the Atrix also works with a new “laptop dock” for expanded multi-tasking and browsing with a full version of Firefox, which we feel is it’s most revolutionary feature. Looks pretty sweet to us.
What we have here is a chrome-plated Tron-themed Audi R8, engineered by Pimp My Ride vehicular tricksters West Coast Customs, which (we imagine) is (probably) faster than a lightcycle. This version of the R8, however, isn’t quite so subtle — with glowing rims, glowing vents, a glowing back seat and a chrome finish so perfectly reflective that you can check your hair and makeup in the car’s bonnet. All the glowing bits gradually fade through a series of colours too, for added Tron-style excellence. This thing would be perfect cruising the streets of South Beach surrounded by neons and hot babes flocking, yea my 1992 Taurus will have to do until I get this thing.

Surprise, the best version of something entitled “black ops” this year isn’t the much ballyhooed game, but an equally sinister and consumable product, Brooklyn Black Ops Beer. The official stance of Brooklyn Brewery is this: Brooklyn Black Ops beer does not exist, and that’s a damn fine way to start a beer. My favorite beer during the winter hands down is Brooklyn Chocolate Stout, so when I saw this I got pretty excited. The Russian Imperial Stout has been covertly brewed, hidden from normal brew operations and prying eyes. First aged 4 months in Bourbon barrels, then bottled flat and allowed to re-ferment with Champagne yeast in bottles, Black Ops delivers a legion of robust flavors: chocolate, coffee, vanilla oak, and strong notes of bourbon. The beer is a decisive victory and as you can see, bottled in an equally winning package. The only catch? Reportedly, only 1,000 cases of the elixir have been brewed and they’re hard as hell to find with a price tag to match. $26 per bottle.
