This reminds me of another Bruce's work. Bruce Tombs is the creator of Maria Del Camino, a 59 El Camino on tank-treads that has an articulated arm that allows the body to ride high above the treads, or display at right angles to them.

I camp with Bruce and Maria at Liminal Labs at Burning Man, and riding around in her is a treat beyond words.

Reflectacles, the hyper-reflective Ray Ban-style $75 glasses frames that Scott Urban is Kickstarting have a new feature: now you can get ones doped with materials that reflect the infrared light that CCTVs kick out to let them capture images in low light, which blind cameras’ sensors. Cool!
