Ford Ecoboost Hot Rod

Ford Ecoboost Hot Rod

Debuting at SEMA, this Ford Hot Rod is a reproduction of a ’34 3-window Coupe; lean and green, it packs a twin-turbo 3.5L V6 Ecoboost, good for 400 hp and 400 lb-ft. of torque.

Minox NV mini II

Minox NV mini II

Minox’s night vision NV line gets downsized in a good way: the NV mini II measures just 4.2″ x 1.6″ (about as large as lipstick) and offers 2x magnification and infrared illumination.

Short Film: The Machine

Short Film: The Machine

Even if you take The Machine at face value (The Matrix w/puppets), it’s hard to miss its morality play angle; it’s otherwise a gorgeous stop-motion film styled like an old-time nickel arcade.

2010 Saleen Mustang

2010 Saleen Mustang

Even with the covered rear quarter windows, we like the clean design seen in these semi-official pics of the 2010 Saleen S281 Mustang; it’ll debut at 2009 SEMA Show on 11/3/09.

3FOLD Leather Bag

Funny: Vampire Reunion

Blood may be thicker than water, but with family members dabbling in synthetic blood, interspecies dating, and cereal sales, we’d just as soon get back in our coffins after this Vampire Reunion.

40oz Skate Deck

40oz Skate Deck

Drinking and riding ain’t cool, but this Deathwish Low Life Cruiser Skateboard Deck is an alcohol-free stopgap between beer runs; it’s a 7-ply maple board with custom paint job.

Video: Happiness Hat

Coming to a customer service desk near you, the Happiness Hat is disturbing yet awesome: a servo motor moves a metal spike into the head whenever it notices you’re not smiling.

Dethklok x Brutal Legend

Dethklok x Brutal Legend

2010 Aprilia RSV4 R

2010 Aprilia RSV4 R

The Aprilia RSV4 R costs almost $8k less than the factory RSV4 with cheaper chassis parts and less carbon fiber, but it’s a sweet deal: it keeps the 999cc V-4 and weighs only 11 lbs more.
