EMBRIO Advanced Concept

This thing is amazing. It's designed for the year 2025, but something tells us that it'll be here faster than we think! Designed by the Canadian company Bombardier Recreational Products, the riding position is similar to that of a motorcycle. The vehicle uses sensors and gyroscopes to balance up to two passengers on a large single wheel whilst driving.

Specs and another pic after the jump!

ALPHA//LINKs 2/27/08

The girls this week outperformed the guys but we still didn't see anything totally WOWING. The judges were impressed but felt most of them just played it safe this week.

As always, Carly Smithson pulled through this week, even if she was the first performer. Like David Archuleta, she's the one to beat this season.

A close second, little Ramiele really came through. It was a song I knew and I enjoyed her performance very much.

Brooke White took a risk with bringing out the guitar, but it was definitely for the better. She did great. I wasn't sure I liked the performance at first, but as it progressed it grew on me.

David Archuleta blew us away AGAIN! His John Lennon rendition of Imagine All the People was amazing. I'd be really surprised if David didn't make it to the top 12.

Surprising me this week was David Hernandez. He took his criticism in stride and really knocked his performance out of the park this week.

Another surprise was from Chikezie. New outfit, better song, and better performance. His joke about Simon was funny too. Looking forward to see what he has in store for us next week!
