Will Mash-ups start happening outside of software?

Just watched this video about Lean-Agile process being used by WikiSpeed to build fuel efficient cars (100+ MPG).

Wikispeed is using Agile and Lean to manufacture parts, components and assemblies - generating very fast innovation.

I then watched this video about eRocket Bike - you still peddle but the bike is assisted and goes about 50 MPH!  Move over Lance Armstrong.

So what would happen if we mashed these two startup innovators together?  We do this in software all the time.  I worked with some guys that mashed Fit/Fitness with Selenium and out poped StoryTestIQ.  Could we all be peddling our cars in the future?
