The Parajet SkyRunner ($TBA) isn't your regular old all-terrain vehicle. It can actually fly. Yup you got it, it can leave the ground and sour like a plane, thanks to it's powerful engine and chute.The SkyRunner features a 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine that delivers 125PS. When in car mode the engine will accelerate to 62mph in just 4.3 seconds with a top speed of 115 mph. This thing moves. But the fun doesn't stop there.It also features a paraglider wing that provides extreme pitch and roll stability when in flight. When in the air the wing absorbs turbulence to provide your a comfortable ride, and if the worse happens and the engine or wing fails, the SkyRunner can float back to the ground on its paraglider or via a ballistic reserve chute. Expect the SkyRunner to be available for purchase sometime this Summer.

Chairs, by definition, should be pretty simple things. We just use them for sitting on after all. But, despite their limited breadth of usefulness, this is no excuse for not making them look awesome. In this regard, it is clear that the legendary American designer, Charles Eames, was singing from the same hymn sheet with his timeless classic, the DSW Chair which, such is its extraordinary excellence, is on permanent display in the Musuem of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. Don't try and sit on it though - the security guards get pretty mad! Originally released in 1948, the Charles Eames DSW Chair ($177) is a bit like a fine wine insomuch it has got better with age and it looks awesome in today's contemporary homes so if you're up for some new furniture, this iconic piece will be a good place to start.

If you consider yourself to be innovative, or inventive, or both when it comes to cooking it can be difficult to find an outlet for your creativity as opposed to just following recipes. Cooking For Geeks ($7) is the book you have been waiting for. It goes behind the dish and looks at the science involved in cooking a meal. This is so much more than a cookbook, as it takes your curiosity for new discoveries and applies it to the kitchen thus allowing you to learn what makes a recipe work so you can improvise and create it yourself.
