    EventHorizon assuredly the cause of the angry Economy..

    we've all heard about the horizontal bicycles, three-wheeled motorcycles with two wheels in front, and mecha-striesand. soon i'll have access to a really sweet machine shop with lots of precision equipment (water cutting tool, electron microscope, hammers, the works). i need ideas on what to make and theres no better place to start then with what cool stuff is already being made. what would TFP make if they were in a really souped up version of shop class if materials were free?
    my ideas:
    wright-flyer cockpit (lying down) on a tricycle with two wheels in the front and a roll cage so that if you go mountain biking and you flip over, you can still pedal and give power to the two wheels in front of you.

    tough case for my laptop/ipod

    compound bow

    slingshot/crossbow fired the way the daniel craig's wrist gun fires in Cowboys and Aliens

    sail-powered craft with wheels capable of traveling over gravel

    skateboard with an engine on it

    can TFP give me advice on which would be a good idea? what are my bad ideas? how would i go about building my good ideas? how would you guys do it?
