Quick! Name a gullwing supercar concept with a quad rotor engine. If you can’t name one, great: you’re probably a normal human being.

The Tracy EV Concept’s L-Shaped Seats Turn Travel Into A Classy Eco-Friendly Lounge

We have a ton of new car technologies that promise to change transportation forever, but they tend to stick to the boring, tried-and-true automotive lay out of everyone facing forward.

Concept Tractors Are A Thing And Boy Does This Kubota One Look Pissed

I suppose this shouldn’t really be surprising, but even though I almost exclusively associate the idea of pie-in-the-sky concept machines with the automotive industry, they’re not the only ones do this kind of thing.
