''EX'' ... Screwdriver-powered vehicle !


''The vehicle was built and designed in cooperation with Sebastian Auray, Ruben Faber and Ludolf von Oldershausen.

Using two 18-volt-screwdrivers as engines, the "EX" accelerates its driver up to 30 km/h.
The driver controls the vehicle with brake and gas handles and by tilting the back wheel with its body. Both screwdrivers run in the same direction to get the maximum power out of them.
To avoid one screwdriver blocking the other, overrunning clutch gearwheels are used to transmit the torque.
Steering with the spine-shaped joint is very different from holding a steering wheel or handle bar. You have to use your whole body to tilt and bend the vehicle.
Instead of hiding all mechanical parts under a bodywork everything is left uncovered to show how the vehicle works:Modified bicyle parts are used for most of the drive components. 

A skeleton with its organs was the inspiration for this design.''

So there you have it...this is what comes out when a few deviants like Nils Ferber start brainstorming and building.  This project could run for the dWRENCHED AWARD OF THE YEAR with no problems. If there was sucha thing. Hmmm...
