    Project Nomad is a mechanical vehicle concept by designer Jason Battersby.

    The vehicle--designed like a horse--can climb steep grades and even navigate rocks and boulders. Best part, it finds its own fuel. Using a built-in GPS system, the horse seeks out vegetation which it then consumes and converts to fuel.

    It can also transform that same energy to its rider. Not sure how that works. Maybe like bird regurgitation? I don't know but it just sounds kinda gross.

    The concept also includes a matching helmet and survival pack for the fashion conscious rider.

    At the rate canine jetpack development has been going, I'm guessing before. However, it will be easy enough to install an after-market Collie Carrier on this thing. He'll need to get goggles that match mine, of course. :D
