Mr. Otto’s Dicycle ca. 1880

No idea how this works, how to steer, how to brake, but it was touted as a safety bicycle for people unable to handle a penny farthing. I’m guessing that if you came to a quick stop, you’d be either thrown face-first onto the pavement, or you’d rock back and forth until your lunch suddenly appeared on your lap. Once you started pedaling, the same rocking thing would happen again with the same result, only messier.

I want one.

“Don’t worry Ma’am, I’m from the Internet.”

It’s brilliant. I’m guessing it’s a methane collector connected to a burner to provide lift to the parachute. I’d name the single-user gas-fired flying machine “Jack The Ripper.”

RRoadtrip SEFT-1

Artists Ivan Puig and Andrés Padilla Domene (Los Ferronautas) built their striking silver road-rail SEFT-1 vehicle to explore the abandoned passenger railways of Mexico and Ecuador, capturing their journeys in videos, photographs and collected objects.

Between 2006 and 2011, the artists traveled across Mexico and Ecuador in the SEFT-1 (Sonda de Exploración Ferroviaria Tripulada or Manned Railway Exploration Probe). In a transdisciplinary art project, they set out to explore disused railways as a starting point for reflection and research, recording the landscapes and infrastructure around and between cities. Interviewing people they met, often from communities isolated by Mexico’s passenger railway closures, they shared their findings online, seft1.com, where audiences could track the probe’s trajectory, view maps and images and listen to interviews.
