Steampunk Meets Tron in this Gas-Powered Bicycle

I donít know what style to call this, or if this bike is just in a style of its own, or what. Whatever the case, Erís Teardrop (yeah, a bike with a name) is like no bike youíve seen before.

Designed by Josh Hadar, Erís Teardrop is a lean-back, gas-powered bicycle made from some pretty primo materials. The bike ditches spoked wheels for solid aluminum plates, while the frame is made from rolled steel topped with a layer of nickel. The gas tank is made of hand-blown glass with steel detailing, which is connected to the 80 cc gas-powered motor.

All that comes together to create something, although itís a little hard to say exactly what that something is. I feel like itís something youíd come across if you fell through a Stargate into some advanced desert world? Maybe? I donít know, man, but it looks pretty cool. Definitely gets points for genuinely being unique.

Robotic Insects

Robot bugs will surely live around us in the near future. Unfortunately, judging by what we are seeing so far, they are not going to look anywhere as cool as these retro-futuristic designs by Andrew Serkin.





Andrew Serkin is a motion graphic designer and art director based in Moscow, Russia. You can follow his work on Facebook, or Behance.

Is that bike really functional? Looks like expensive art and I wouldn't want to risk damaging it by taking it out for a spin.

I believe it's functional, though I do wonder about it making a turn with that design.

So Netflix brings on a new series/competition about Steampunk. Within minutes of season 1, series 1, the show is structured exactly like all the other competitive shows. It's to early to determine if this is a good or bad thing. It looks like the will focus on people over the art, but let's see.
