All-electric Tron Lightcycle hits the streets.

All-electric Tron Lightcycle hits the streets

We first spied Parker Brothers Choppers Lightcycle project last year when it surfaced in gas-powered form, now the company has released video of a fully-electric version of the neon-packing two-wheeler in action. The electric motor may be quieter, but this one's still guaranteed to turn heads. View all The Lightcycle is based on the conveyance from 2010's Tron: Legacy and in its latest real-world form it has undergone extensive body reworking as well as getting a 96 volt electric motor and lithium ion battery pack. There's no word yet on pricing or availability of All Electric Lightcycle, but the Suzuki V-twin driven model is still being sold through Hammacher Schlemmer for an asking price of US$55K.

While the electric drag bike looks monstrous when posing for the cameras, it's simply jaw-dropping when on the move – as you can see from the video after the jump. View all It's not the first time that the Rocket has broken records at the Virginia Motorsports Park near Petersburg, VA. Shawn Lawless told us that the ultimate goal is to get under six seconds and over 255 mph (410 km/h).

Looks interesting. Though some people give this a bad review. I would wonder about durability of the device.If you decide to try them make shure you get them from a place where you can return them for the almost $80 bucks it takes to buy them if you find them unsuitable, or just don't like them. – timepeaces

Yes, you can store wine in it, and pour wine into and out of it. But no, it's not very practical as a wine carafe. The chimerical Wine Bottle Klein Bottle is now reality! As impractical as it is elegant. The Wine Bottle Klein Bottle is difficult to fill with wine, because of vapor-lock. I've made the Wine Bottle Klein Bottle in two different shapes. Not only are these difficult to fill and empty, but cleaning them is a real challenge. I've designed these to balance with or without contents. Again, these are about the most impractical Wine Bottle / Caraffes ever made. Photo below shows the short-handled variety: The short handled Wine Bottle Klein Bottle below: notice the handworked glass pouring spout!
