It’s just a bit cheesy and reminds us of a flashing banner ad, but the E-Ink cover on Esquire’s 25th anniversary issue is a technological milestone. Click here to see it taken apart.
If the 2009 YZF-R1 is out of your budget, Yamaha’s 2009 FZ6R comes in at a more affordable $7k; it’s an upright bike but still sporty with a 78bhp engine; the seat is adjustable.
Apple’s iPod Touch gets a mild makeover, with a thinner, more contoured design and an external volume control. It will also get a built-in speaker and come standard with Nike + iPod.
With Porsche cashing in on home gadgets, it’s not too surprising to see this Bugatti Volo Toaster. Even with 930 watts you’re paying mostly for style, but there’s no denying its sexy looks.
The attention to detail on these hand-crafted, glass-topped Alien coffee tables (#1, #2) is stunning: they’re made from car and bike parts, tools, and other scavenged metal pieces.
Senior Computer Club brings back happy memories of dual floppy drives and baud; it sports a TRS-80 Model III (or 4?) and comes in an AA tee, but we definitely prefer the snazzy polo.
If you need inspiration, Fubiz has an excellent post up with 70 creatively designed business cards, with everything from smoked plastic and metal cutouts to wood tokens.
Northwave’s Lizard Cycling Shoes are ideal for cross country and mountain bikers; their aptly-named “Jaws” soles have great grip, while triple velcro straps maximize support.
Apple’s new Ipod Nano returns to its candybar roots and is the thinnest iPod ever. Made with curved aluminum, you can shake it to shuffle; it will come in a rainbow of nine colors.
Yamaha released a slew of bikes yesterday, but we’re most excited by the 2009 Yamaha R1: it uses a big bang engine, which gets an inline four’s power and a v-twin’s traction.
Move over, Kindle: Plastic Logic’s Digital Reader is coming in 2009 with an ultra-slim, minimalist form factor. The display will measure 8.5×11 and use a gesture interface.
Granted we’re grown-up and all, but we’re giddy for Lego’s Castle Troll Assault Wagon. A goofy mix of LOTR and Warhammer, it even comes with two hapless knights.
Like their other remote, the Universal MX-6000 is only available to installers; too bad, because this bad boy has a 4.3″ touchscreen, built-in Wi-Fi and runs on a 533 MHz ARM CPU.
Rodrigo Braga’s artwork is creatively disturbing; based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, he’s worked for companies such as Chevy but does quite a few club flyers. He’s also a DJ, too.
We so could have used one of these Things That Glow t-shirts as an eight-year old. Not only does it show radioactive potatoes and rocket ships, but it actually glows in the dark.
Lockwasher is a prolific artist who creates robot sculptures with found objects. Our favorite by far is BeertooD2, although we do wonder if it’s as helpful as the Bud Light Bot.
We like the brute metallic simplicity of O.D.M.’s bronzed Zen Watch; most striking is its decagon-shaped, ion-plated stainless steel case that give it a clean and angular lines.
It’s like two sins for the price of one: Tabasco has teamed up with Heaven Hill Distilleries to release Tabasco Spicy Tequila. Oh, the Mojitos and Sangritas we’ll make with this…
HP’s 14.1″ EliteBook 6930P runs an astounding 24 hours on an optional high capacity battery. Similarly styled to their flagship 8730W, you’ll want an SSD hard drive to maximize time.
If high school bio and anatomy got together, you’d get Emilio Garcia’s Jumping Brains. The limited edition RGB brains are already sold out, but DIY 3″ resin brains are coming soon.
Above is an extremely short teaser for the upcoming Gatchaman movie. It looks almost like a spinoff of the recent Speed Racer movie; let’s just hope it has a coherent storyline.
Photos for the 2011 Chevy Volt have leaked, along with not-so-sexy GM execs draped over its hood. It’s a bit curvier than we expected, but we’ll take any plug-in hybrids we can get.
Although we’d prefer an LCD, Mitsubishi’s massive 65″ LaserVue TV still has us drooling. The rear projection unit does 1080p but only uses half the power of a plasma or LCD TV.
Incarnadine’s Eternally, Always Tee is made for power pop band Forever The Sickest Kids and features a skeleton rocking a guitar; it’s a six color print with gold foil.
We featured Owerko’s retro-nostalgic Boombox Project previously; he’s teamed up with Gelaskins to produce a custom Boombox skin, available for most iPods and MacBooks.
Mad props to Vincent Chai: World War is a robot short film and the degree project for this University of Hertfordshire student. It was done in 8 months using Photoshop and Maya.
