We don't really know what to call this thing, a scooter that is both jet-powered and turbocharged? who cares, it looks insane.
If you’ve kept up with YouTube experimenter, Colin Furze, you know that his channel is filled with nothing short of some of the craziest contraptions that the world has ever seen, all designed and put together by the man himself. It really seems like each one tops the last in their scope of how crazy they are and what each is able to accomplish.
This one, in particular, really gives Furze a ride on the wild side as all sorts of combustible elements, both literally and figuratively, come together into one package that really has to give an incredible adrenaline rush of a ride to the pilot.
Basically, what we’re looking at here is a highly modified scooter powered by means of a turbojet engine. Having created all of the components himself, Colin compiled them into one cohesive picture that is powered by propane and, in this demonstration, we get to see all the hard work pay off as we witness some of the baby steps of the turbojet – an experiment that the creator himself admits needs a couple more steps to come around full circle and be as polished as he wants it to be.
But to us, just seeing this thing in action is really exciting.
If you follow along in the video below, you’re going to see what we mean as said contraption really gives one a ride on the wild side. With so many elements so close together and that propane tank in the mix next to an incredibly hot engine, you have to just hope that the right amount of research went into putting this thing together.
From what we see here, it does look like you can call this mission a success as the ride gets rolling with a nice head of steam.
Would you dare to hop on this thing?
