Hard Graft is known for its beautifully crafted goods and its use of leather and wool felt. The new Hard Graft Fall '13 Camera Accessories ($77-$470) fit that ethos perfectly. The new line features a Box Camera Bag ($470) that uses a single piece of leather and wool felt. You can see when you open the top of the bag it was inspired by boxing gloves by its use of grey cords to tie and secure your camera. The line also includes a Hang Camera Strap ($139) and a Hold Camera Handle ($77).
Designed by Gusztav Szikszai The Ring Clock ($185) is one of the coolest designs I've seen in a while. It's made up of three rings, the top one is a 24 hour clock, the second gives you the minutes and the bottom ring keeps the seconds. With a twist of the ring the time illuminates for about a minute. It also includes a wireless charge station (see after the break), ultra-thin battery, and energy-saving LEDs. You do have the option of getting the LEDs in blue or orange. The one downside is that the battery has a 3 year life span and isn't replaceable. Regardless this would make a pretty cool conversation piece. The crowd funding is being run through Indiegogo and expected delivery is in April of 2014.
Update: Crowd Funding has successfully completed for the Ring Clock and they are currently taking pre-orders on their website. Congratulations guys, and good luck.

Lamborghini is jumping on the hybrid bandwagon with the reveal of its Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4 Concept ($TBA). The 910-4 features a 5.2-liter, naturally aspirated v10 engine that pushes 610 horses and 413 lb-ft of torque. But that's not all, it also comes with three electric motors that add an additional 300 horses for a total of 910. One of the motors pushes additional torque to the engine while the others sit on the front wheels providing all-wheel drive traction and torque vectoring. They also assist in keeping the car on the road when moving through tight corners. This engine and motor combination moves the 910-4 past 60 mph in just 3 seconds. So if you're in Paris make sure you stop by the motorshow to catch a view of this new Lamborghini.

http://youtu.be/b1An1MFwXxQ The name if this film is We are Not Crazy... We Are Amazing! but based on the footage these guys are a little crazy. This awesome video is about SoulFlyers Fred Fugen and JP Teffaud base jumping at the Meara Kuala Lumpur 2012 event. The entire video was 100% filmed by GoPro and if you don't get an adrenaline rush from it you're already dead.
