We're by no means fans of the name BushPig (is that an Australian thing?) but the motorized, off-road, two-wheeler is getting lots-o-press — Time Magazine called it one of the Best Inventions of the Year and Wired is featuring it at NextFest this weekend in San Francisco. Maybe it's the new extreme-sports segway: or not. Created by Australian designers and brought to the US by Wheelman North America, the Bushpig is ridden like a skateboard but the rider's feet fit inside the wheels. The motor propels the device to up to 20 miles per hour, and a handheld wired throttle changes the speed. Try not to get yourself killed.
