"It sounds like a late April Fools’ joke, but the Pope may be acquiring a pedal-powered vehicle to demonstrate his commitment to sustainability. The carbon-neutral Popemobile was designed by theEnvironmental Transport Association (ETA) during Pope Benedict’s term as pontiff, and it’s expected to be ready for delivery later this summer. Designed by British inventor Yannick Read, the new Popemobile will have bullet-proof windows, solar panels mounted on its hood, an emergency powertrain boost and an oxygen supply." Via:

"The Allied AirBike is like your own personal jet ski for the clouds. This really cool aircraft was first designed back in the 1980s, but still looks so futuristic. The AirBike is basically a VTOL motorcycle concept. The aircraft was expected to able to reach speeds of up to 100 mph...... 
.. just in case, was also to be fitted with a parachute to be deployed in case of emergencies". Via:
