If you need any further convincing on the impact of wind drag on vehicle efficiency, try this on for size: a British fellow just hopped on a pushbike and went 149 mph (240 km/h) while slipstreaming a Porsche. Neil "Soupy" Campbell now holds the European bicycle speed record, but not the world one – yet... Continue Reading Neil "Soupy" Campbell hits 149 mph on a bicycle to set new European
The last time we caught up with media artist Moritz Simon Geist was in 2012 when he revealed his extra large take on Roland's TR-808 drum machine, the wall-filling MR-808.
