It's strange looking back at what the past thought was the future of transport. In typically British fashion, some fool thought we'd all be blasting along the Thames on a Vespa-come-jetski -- those were the days.

Come to London and see the weird and wonderful. Perhaps that should be our new Olympic slogan. Mind you, a waterborne moped might actually be the fastest way to get around during the Olympics. Who'd have the last laugh then, eh? [YouTube via LikeCool]
