The problem with most drones is that they aren’t designed for underwater use, especially for search and rescue teams. Saver Whale aims to change that. It comes equipped with rugged cameras, sonar technology, several radars, and a radio system for communication. You can deploy this directly from a helicopter precisely where its service is required, while providing a life vest, rope, and first aid kit if necessary.

For those who have come across a 1983 Honda City Turbo II, nothing about this hatchback really stood out, that is until…you looked in the trunk. That’s right, this is where a folding 49cc Honda Motocompo scooter was stored.

Unfortunately, this was only released in Japan, but can now be imported into the states legally.
