Looking more like an amphibious craft than land machine, the CIV is, well, sort of both. How so you ask? The CIV, which stands for Concept Ice Vehicle is designed to navigate and drive on frozen water. It’s equipped with Ice Penetrating Radar, which detects weaknesses and cracks in the ice too help insure the driver’s safety. Power is provided from a a supercharged BMW 1150 engine that has been modified to run on biofuel and is hooked up to a 3 bladed propeller. The CIV isn’t all about looks or showing off. The end game of the concept vehicle is to show the World that biofuel can be used in the most extreme of climates while shining a light on the global warming issues we face.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
