As this year’s Febrovery contest draws to a close we have a few more lunar rovers to share with you, mostly because it’s all TLCB Elves will bring back into the office at the moment. We’ll have to do something about that*, but until then here are two more (admittedly great) sci-fi builds.
First up is Andreas Lenander‘s ‘MW-2P’, a spacey mono-wheel that looks perfect for couples married more than a few years. Roll into Andreas’ photostream via the link to see more.
Today’s second lunar rover looks equally fun, coming from ‘Rob‘ (who must have the most straightforward Flickr handle ever), and he’s applied some wonderful photo editing to bring his rover to life. Click the link above to blast across the surface of some far-away planet!
*We may well hi-jack Febrovery in ’22. Not all Rovers are in space…
Wheeling across a planet, within Neo-Classic Space
A spaceman’s on a journey, with a smile upon his face
Like a boulder down a mountain, or a supersonic boom
Blasting into space, pointed directly at the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping, in a never-ending race
As the universe expands, at an ever-growing pace
Like the circles that you find, in the windmills of your mind…
One of music’s most mind-meltingly trippy songs, doctored by a TLCB Writer who really should be doing something more useful, to accompany a mind-meltingly trippy vehicle from builder martin.with.bricks. There’s more to see of Martin’s Neo-Classic Space monowheel speeding across a planet at his photostream – click the link above to enter the windmill of your mind.
For reasons unknown the Elves were in a steampunk mood today, which is odd as we suspect they know even less about this sub-genre than we do. Still, their finds are splendid, and thus here they are!
Both have been built by Krzysztof Pusz of Flickr and feature some simply ingenious parts usage. First up (above) is the ‘Bulbulator‘, which actually doesn’t look that dissimilar from the steam cars of the early days of motoring. Krzysztof’s second steampunk build looks like nothing from any time period ever, but a steam-powered monowheel does seem a marvellous way to get to Walmart.
There more to see of each brick-built whimsy at Krzysztof’s photostream – head to Flickr via the links above.
TLCB regular billyburg has come up with another in his series of super Classic Space vehicles. In contrast to F@bz’s creative solution to futuristic two-wheeled transport that we featured two days ago, billyburg has gone thinner, bigger diameter and side-by-side. The Elves have never seen wheels like this in all of their travels around the internet. Click this link to billyburg’s Flickr Photostream to see the details of exactly how he’s achieved it.
