As increasingly more people give up their cars in favor of biking to work, it only makes sense that necessity would drive our bikes to get smarter — more capable of handling the risks and challenges of an urban commute. The Vanhawks Valour Connected Bike combines intelligent technology with lightweight carbon-fiber construction for a bike that's truly meant to handle the busy city streets. Connecting to an iPhone, Android, and Pebble app using Bluetooth, this bike lets you plot your routes, giving you turn-by-turn directions, and offers blind-spot detection, theft alerts, fitness data, and so much more. Better still, it connects with other Vanhawks Valour bikes, helping to improve your routes over time so you can avoid congestion, potholes, and other pitfalls.
Ever have trouble remembering which yacht is yours after a night out in Monaco? That won't be a problem with the Lujac Desautel Glass Yacht. Built atop a SWATH (Small Water-Plane Area Twin Hull) and inspired by skyscrapers, this stunning watercraft features three block-like volumes stacked on top of each other, with an internal elevator to move between floors, connecting all the different areas of the boat. And while the design itself is sleek and smart — the aft deck lowers itself into the water for access to tenders and other craft — the mirror-like glass exterior ensures you'll always look as good as the ocean itself.
If you were designing the perfect urban bike, what would it feature? A lightweight frame? A powerful headlight? A simple paint scheme? Well, the Cylo One Bike offers all of that and more. Featuring a clean design that integrates everything into the frame, this urban bike boasts dynamo-powered LED lights — including a bright brake light to help keep you from getting hit from behind — a Gates carbon belt drive to reduce noise and help keep your legs clean, elongated fenders to keep you dry, and your choice of a poppy red, white, or black paint job.
