The Exodyne Electric Motorcycle looks like what would be built if MacGyver needed a ride on Monday and was trapped in a very well stocked garage over the weekend… which actually isn’t that far from the truth. In the case of the Exodyne garage build, MacGyver is Alan Cross, an Atlanta-based veterinary orthopedic surgeon who also happens to have an engineering degree and a wide array of fabrication and metalworking skills. Nine months of research, development, design and fabrication went into the creation of the the Exodyne, and outside of the powder coating and seat upholstery, Cross did the work himself in his garage. The central part of the frame doubles as a battery box that holds 48 lithium-ion polymer battery cells that help the sub-250lb bike reach speeds up to 60mph for a range of 20 miles. As much as we’d all love to climb on the scaffolding-bolted-to-batteries silhouette of the Exodyne, Cross has no plans to put the bike into production.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
