Red Bull Creation Project Roundup [Pics]

While all of the teams competing did an amazing job, a few in particular caught our eye.

There were lots of inspiring projects to see at the Red Bull Creation event in Brooklyn. Here’s a few of our favorite photos from the day. For more build and event photos, check out our flickr gallery. Motorized hammock driven via a Playstation controller by North Street Labs – Portsmouth VA (above).

Double Wide – Nevada built “The Amazing Cyclo”, a Marionette Bicycle Part RC Controlled Robot with working hands and a lcd ‘face’ controlled by a sock puppet.

ITP – New York City took the gym to the streets with their elliptical trainer powered trike.

i3Detroit – Detroit, MI created a compressed C02-powered and solar charged squiggle trike which left a curvy water trail from the rear wheels.

Techshop – San Francisco made a see-saw that spins in a circular motion around as you go up and down. Polaroid cameras facing each rider would capture random in-flight pics.

Innovation Thirst – Greenville, TX presented a mobile swing set-powered electric vehicle.

Alpha One Labs – Brooklyn, NY made a giant hamster wheel powered vehicle which could be piloted solo or steered by a friend from the front seat.

NYC Resistor – Brooklyn, NY constructed a steam punk inspired brass trolley car for street use.

Hack.RVA – Richmond, VA used a clothes dryer drum and shopping carts to create an electric wheelie machine that pops wheelies.

Ruination – Rochester, NY used a trampoline and pulley system to power their quad bike which they referred to as wedgie-powered.

Hands down our favorite was from Donner Party 2.0 – Truckee, CA who created a pedal-assist hybrid electric custom tricycle. They fabricated a trailer out of a washing machine which made Red Bull margaritas. The low slung SoCal hot rod look of the trike was stunning in person and the trailer which the guys got NYC graffiti artist Gusto to paint is really clever. Wonder how many trailers like this we’ll see being towed by fixie bikes around Williamsburg in the near future.

In front of the event site was a ferris wheel bike rack.

The crowd braving the summer heat to check out the competitors.
