Where else could you find personal submarines, amphibious cars and transforming vehicles? As it turns out, you'll have to visit Switzerland for that. Swiss shop and automotive think tank Rinspeed has been churning out crazy concepts like the heavy-hauling X-Trem, aquatically-inclined sQuba and shapeshifting Presto for over 3 decades now.

Jetsprint Racing | TRANSLOGIC
Watch Next Ep. Here: http://goo.gl/8TBrjb If you thought H1 Unlimited was the craziest motorsport on water, then you've probably never seen a Jetsprint race. While not as fast as their hydroplane counterparts, sprint boats are plenty nimble. The winding waters and twisted trenches of Jetsprint courses rarely occur naturally, so competitors actually dig the 3 foot deep channels themselves.

Sikorsky Firefly: An Electric Helicopter
Produced by Glenn Pew (http://www.glennpew.com/) for AVweb.com. It's at nearly gross weight before the pilot steps in and can only fly for 15 minutes, but that's not the point. Sikorsky Innovations sees the Firefly as a testbed for the technologies that may make for a real electric helicopter ... someday.
