British tinkerer Colin Furze builds amazing things and screams (which is why I usually watch his videos muted). In the past, he has made a lamp powered with a chainsaw motor, a bumper car with a 600 cc engine, and a bicycle with wheels made of ice. They’re amazing, unconventional machines. When the apocalypse comes, you want him on your survival team–especially since he has literally built a bunker for that purpose.
Whatever trouble is coming, he saw it long ago in a galaxy far, far away. To promote the new Star Wars film, he built a functional landspeeder. Yes, it has wheels instead of hover engines. But it’s otherwise a completely-scaled up model of a landspeeder toy–the ideal commuter vehicle.
