    Default Is it a boat? Is it a bicycle? No, itís the Z-Triton, by Zeltini

    And no, this isn't an April Fool's joke.

    Trust me: you gotta watch this short video.




    For escapades demanding the shelter of a turtle and the speed of a hare, a quirky new mode of transport has just hit the adventure market.

    The Z-Triton is a peculiar meld of trike, boat, and camper van, designed by the Latvian company Zeltini. (Their very fun website is here.)

    Ultimately, the Z-Triton is an amphibious camper with a built-in tricycle that folds up neatly to allow a transition from land to water. Measuring a compact 3.6m long by 1.2m wide, it sleeps two people comfortably. Well, sort of. Maybe.


    The Z-Triton sleeps two. Dog not included.


    Two 250-watt motors with an electrical outboard engine provide power for lighting and temperature control. Specs include a cockpit with two mirrors, a horn, and an umbrella for rainy days.

    It has a 26-inch front wheel and two 20-inch rear wheels in trike mode. When converted into a boat, the back becomes the front ó stay with me ó while the two smaller wheels fold up at a 90-degree angle. Smaller details such as the cup holder, passenger seatbelt in trike mode, and ample interior storage make it almost luxurious.


    Z-Triton in boat mode. Dog still not included.


    For about $12,000, the Z-Triton could be yours. While that might seem a little steep, wouldnít it be handy to have one craft to travel on land, across water, and also to sleep in?

    The Z-Tritonís creators say they build ďamphibian mobile homes and vehicles for human resilience and fun, aiming to make products that create unique experiences/emotions.Ē If nothing else, the company has a wonderful sense of humor.

    This is not a multipurpose car,it is not a space car,it is not an ice cream car,it is not a mini car and is not even an ACME car,is just Peel P50.








    The Smallest Car in the World at the BBC - Top Gear - BBC
    (8:57 min.)
    "Jeremy drives the Peel P50, the world's smallest production car to work at the BBC and meets a few famous faces along the way."


    "The Peel P50 is a three-wheeled microcar originally made from 1962 to 1965 by the Peel Engineering Company on the Isle of Man. It was listed in the 2010 Guinness World Records as the smallest production car ever made.[3] The original model has no reverse gear, but a handle at the rear allows the very lightweight car to be maneuvered physically when required.

    Designed as a city car, it was advertised in the 1960s as capable of seating "one adult and a shopping bag". The vehicle's only door was on its left side and equipment included a single windscreen wiper and one headlight. Standard colours were Daytona White, Dragon Red, and Dark Blue. The 1963 model retailed for £199 when new (about £6,600 in 2019, or US$8,500). The company produced 50 P50s and only 27 are known to still exist, one of which was sold for a record US$176,000 at a Sotheby's auction in March 2016.[4]

    In 2010 Peel Engineering Ltd. in England started remaking the P50 and Trident models from its premises in Sutton-in-Ashfield, England.[5] Externally this car is very similar to the original, bearing the same dimensions and curb weight as the original, but with mechanical differences in the suspension, steering, and drive-train, as well as a fully functioning reverse gear, ensuring they are road legal on today's roads. Petrol models with a 49 cc, four-stroke engine are being produced, as well as electric models with an electric moped motor and gelled-electrolyte batteries. The top speed of both cars is about 28 mph (45 km/h)."

    "Your planet is forbidden for an open visit - extremely aggressive social environment,despite almost perfect climatic conditions.Almost 4 billion violent deaths for the last 5000 years and about 15000 major military conflicts in the same period."

    Well, in case you want to but float and hover above the town,
    this miniature single passenger helicopter was developed in Japan based on sketches
    of Leonardo da Vinci : This isnít the latest model :



    Itís something I always wanted 😅

    Looks light and comfortable. Imagine the endless advantages and shenanigans that could be performed if we could actually ascend to clouds in case of emergency and leave ďdem on the ground.


    Happy Plum and Cherry Blossom Festival

    ( the earliest in centuries )

    I like that there are still dreamers out there making real what they imagine.
