Looks like the low slung Steinwinter tractor-trailer, featured in the Highwayman TV series in the 80's...

It's an interesting retrofit solution for the existing 5-th wheel trailer fleet, though I would have expected a better windbreak in front of the trailer front end.

Somebody finally delivers the restaurant concept of a noodle joint doing noodles from all over the world, because sometimes you want italian, sometimes you want thai, sometimes something else, but you have a hankering for string like carbohydrates

Concept for an electric ornithopter backpack airplane. Hrm, I wonder if a turbine powerplant might work here, if the turbine can switch between shaft power mode for electricity generation, and gas jet mode for flight where the wings are fixed like a glider to have more conventional flight like a motorized glider.

Oddball ship design where hull superstructure is a symmetric foil, trying to gain some aerodynamic body lift from wind. So a kind of hard/rigid sail sailboat variant. Supposedly have a WIPO patent application , but this thing screams concept designer, and not marine engineer.
