What Geeks Do When They’re Rich

LandspeederThey build their own landspeeders.

We built this fiberglass replica landspeeder from the ground up on a custom aluminum chassis. The electric drive system is capable of a top speed around 25 mph. The speeder is the same size as the original, and can travel several miles on a single battery charge.

From some of the photos on the site, it looks like this guy might be a Disney Imagineer. I’m impressed with his dedication and envious of his resources. I love the idea of driving around town in this thing.

(Although not mentioned on the site, there’s a Delorean in the photo, too. Hope he’s built a Flux Capacitor.)
