Anyone who ever said that coolness is rooted in practicality needs to have a look at the EX trike, built by Nils Ferber, Sebastian Auray, Ruben Faber and Ludolf von Oldershausen.

This wire frame of a tricycle is crafted from bicycle parts, but instead of the rider pedaling it depends on two electric Bosche hand drills which can apparently propel it up to 30 kmh (~18mph). ¬†Turning isn’t quite as simple as propelling the vehicle, since it requires the rider to lean, which influences the back wheel to tilt in the desired direction. ¬†However, braking and accelerating are performed using a set of handles.

Wanna buy it? No dice.
