Outlet Regulator

Gear  |  Gadget

The Outlet Regulator is like a real leech, the power adapter actually disconnects itself from its host (power source) when it’s sucked up all the juice it needs. By using a timer circuit and electromechanics to eject its plug which disconnects itself from the wall outlet once fully charged. (watch the video!) Designed by RISD student Conor Klein.

JL421 Badonkadonk Land Cruiser/Tank

Gear  |  Gadget
The JL421 Badonkadonk Land Cruiser/Tank($19,999.95) was designed and built in 2002 by NAO Design of Palo Alto, CA. Yes, this a real motorized product that you can actually purchase from Amazon. This awesome looking JL421 Badonkadonk Land Cruiser is named "The Donk"!
To look at it, one might think it to be a hovercraft, but in fact it runs on four off-road wheels, concealed by a unique industrial-strength rubberized flexible skirt that shields and protects the wheels to within an inch of the ground, while still allowing for enough flex to give clearance over bumpy and uneven terrain. The roof of the Donk features a guard rail and durable rubber matting, making it the ideal place to carry up to 3 friends or several hundred pounds of cargo. Slide open the roof hatch and you'll find the interior fully carped and cozy, with accent lighting, glove box, controls and room to seat up to 4 people, or 2 comfortably.
"The JL421 Badonkadonk is a completely unique, extremely rare land vehicle and battle tank. Designed with versatility in mind, the Donk can transport cargo or a crew of five internally or on the roof, and can be piloted from within the armored shell or from an exposed standing position through the hatch, thanks to special one-way steel mesh armor windows and a control stick that pivots up and down to allow piloting from the standing or seated positions. The interior is fully carpeted and cozy, with accent lighting and room for up to five people. A 400 watt premium sound system with PA is mounted to project sound both into the cabin and outward from behind the windows. The exterior is a steel shell with a rust patina, and features head and tail lights, turn signal lights, trim lighting, underbody lighting, fixed slats protecting the windows, and a unique industrial-strength rubberized flexible skirt that shields and protects the wheels to within an inch of the ground, while still allowing for enough flex to give clearance over bumpy and uneven terrain. Master power, ignition, all lighting, and stereo features are controlled from a single switchboard to the left of the driver, again accessible from either the seated or standing position. Standard drive is an air-cooled, 6hp Tecumseh gasoline (unleaded only) engine, with centrifugal clutch, giving the Donk a top speed of 40 mph. Badonkadonks are produced on an order-by-order basis, with each one having it's own unique set of features. With your order is included unlimited consultations with the designer and manufacturer concerning all relevant options (a representative from NAO will contact you shortly after your order).

Gear  |  Gadget
For $140,000, you can have a personal hovercraft toy, the Air Board. It can transport you at 15 mph over concrete, asphalt, grass or shallow wet areas, but you cannot drive it over water like a real Hovercraft! Speed and braking are controlled through two levers located on the steering bar, by using varying degrees of weight transfer, the Airboard will sharp or slow turns, 360º turns and sliding turns are all possible, looks Cool!
"Hovercrafts are not just very unique and unusual gifts, they are actually available. They only require gasoline and will transport you at approximately 15 mph. Operate them over concrete, asphalt, grass or shallow wet areas, but you cannot hover over water, sand, stones or dirt-filled areas due to the bottomside vacuum.
Speed and braking are controlled through two levers located on the steering bar. A kill switch automatically deactivates the Air Board in case you unexpectedly jump off, and steering is accomplished by simply shifting your body weight (like a surfboard or skateboard). The gas capacity is 1.3 gallons, which is good for 1 hour of use. Ideal if seeking very unusual gifts or ideas for those with it all.
