Thin lite-weight and flexible solar panels for overlanding!

These are damn sweet too — thin and lite-weight (just over 2.2 lbs 80w!) — and flexible. The website says that you can walk on them barefoot, and you can even get eyelets custom installed to be able to hang these pretty much wherever. I wonder if you can roll these up?

I am starting my christmas list early and definitely thinking about putting this on the roof of an old land rover defender 😉

Electric porsche 356 kit?

This is just straight bad-ass…an electric porsche 356 kit car. Me likey. A lot. I mean the super sweet lines of a 356, but the environmental impact of an electric, along with all that torque. And at $12K-31K depending on options, the price does not seem bad.

I really think that these electric retrofit approaches are the way to go. Keep the cool look of the old classics, but with the reliability torque and environmentals of a more tesla-like vehicle.

Soundproof cardboard boxes whaaat? These are super sweet

Check these out:

Super japanese website and all, but just how rad would it be to have one of these to set up absolutely wherever (well maybe not in the bathroom, unless your roommates went just a little too far on taco tuesday;). Likely meant to help all the aspiring karaoke stars in super high-density tokyo practice without driving their parents insane, but still super rad — vocal booth for your recording studio maybe?! Or for your sex dungeon you kinkster you.

Talk about badass.
