Cardboard Bicycle Could Change The World

(Photo from Irish Times)

Groovechamber is a graphics art, animation and film making company "In a country called Canada". That's from their FAQ. They do some absolutely amazing animations and games, and the music accompanying is fun, too. I keep thinking of them, then forgetting their name and losing contact with the site.

Plastic Bucket Bike Panniers

You gotta love the Instructables. What do you think of this bucket pannier idea? I'll say one thing. They sure will carry more than your run of the mill panniers.
