    The Impossible electric bike

    Motorbiker.com (who owns and rides a BMW C Evolution) has dug up this "kickstarter" project to develop a very small electric rolling substitute for walking around a college campus that will fit in your backpack along with your books. You can see the story and video here:

    It is a mystery to me where they locate the motor and battery, though.

    This is already available, and way more practical. Notice it was posted by none other than Ted Dillard.

    Electric bicycles haven't been mentioned lately. Here are two videos that are worth watching if you like that sort of thing:
