WheeledThing scours the globe to discover products with wheels that for some dumb reason are in mass production. Little did we realize that Hammacher Schlemmer is our biggest competitor. In honor of their prolific catalog, the following post will highlight (or should I say lowlight) their best WheeledThings!
The “First” Flying Bicycle
Now this seems to be a tricycle, backpack and fan all bolted together. I guess if you pedal hard, turn on the fan, and are on a huge incline you may be airborne for a couple of seconds. The price is only $45K, so if the fall does not kill you, maybe the price tag will. I’m guessing that $45K also includes ambulance service. I don’t expect this to replace your LearJet, but hey, if you’re lucky it won’t kill you.
