4) The Ripsaw Mini
The Ripsaw Mini was thought up by Geoff and Mike Howe, better known as the Discovery Channel’s Black Ops Brothers.
The petrol heads from Maine have built vehicles for the military, the police and movies over the years. The Mini is a compact version of one of the duo’s earliest and most iconic creations, The Ripsaw which holds the title of world’s fastest tracked vehicle.

The Ripsaw Mini is basically a quad bike on steroids, using tracks instead of pneumatic tyres. Capable of handling almost any terrain with ease, the mini makes you look like a bad guy from Mad Max.
Oh and the nice lads at Howe and Howe Tech have even turned the technology into an epic wheelchair too.
5) The Screw Propelled Vehicle
Undoubtedly the weirdest entry on the list, this strange machine looks like it was dreamt up by Russian soldiers on a lot of drugs. Even the narrator on the video gets pretty trippy.
Powered by two huge drills this screw propelled contraption can travel through mud, swamps, snow and even across water.

The screws’ large surface area gives incredible traction over difficult terrain and they also work as buoyancy aids when the vehicle needs to get wet.
But despite its bizarre sci fi appearance this idea has actually been around since the 1800s when Swiss inventor Jacob Morath designed a screw vehicle for use in farming.
Admittedly the idea of stoned Russian farmer in an unstoppable machine made of drills is not high on our wish list (they’re mental enough already) but we still definitely want a go in one!
