The Canyon Speedmax CF SLX Triathlon Road Bike ($TBA) may look like a concept, but it'll actually be hitting the roads this December. The Speedmax is called the complete system because it incorporates everything a competitive rider needs directly into the frame. These integrations include a hydration bottle for effortless drinking, food storage for energy bars, gels or salt tablets, a top grip with outstanding ergonomics, and improved damping at the arm pads, extension grips, and basebar grips. And in the top tube you get a space for your tool bag. A lightweight neoprene case equipped with two CO2 cartridges, two tire levers and a spare tube. Visit Canyon's site for the rest of the specs.
Imagine being able to hit a moving target at 500 yards with an AR type rifle . The TrackingPoint Precision Guided Semi-Automatic Rifle ($9950) is fitted with their Precision Guided Firearm (PGF) system. They say this is for the sporting rifle market, but I don't know how sporting it is when you can't miss. The AR series will include 7.62, .300 BLK and 5.56 calibers. They all incorporate the company's Tag Track Xact technology that locks onto moving targets and hits them at ranges up to 500 yards. This kind of accuracy is accomplished from any position including keeling, standing or prone. After the break we have a video of exactly how the Tag Track Xact system works. (The rifle shown is not the AR but a convention bolt action.) [iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/LvbyAcYjzlc" width="100%" height="480"]

For a pair of sneakers with a difference, take a look at the uber-cool Jordan Eclipse “Elephant Print” ($110). A deceptively simple design, there’s an ice-white midsole contrasting starkly against the light mesh wolf-grey uppers. The famous Jumpman logo can be seen on both the tongue loop and again on the heel. With matching grey laces and an unusual elephant print on the upper, you can be certain that this pair of sneakers are going to be one of the hottest things to hit the shelves.
The Dragon House By GilBartolome Architects ($NFS) shows what can be done with a little ingenuity. The home was commissioned by a young couple who had a difficult plot with amazing views. They wanted the home built on the side of a hill with a 42-degree incline with all of the living areas facing the sea. Add a tight budget to the mix and the Architects have their hands full.The form of the house combined with the metallic roof produces the feel of dragon skin when seen from below and waves when seen from above.The house features two floors: a terraced living area with an outdoor swimming pool and a second floor which contains the main sleeping areas.Because of the high unemployment rate in Spain, the owners wanted to use craftsmanship and local labor instead of using machine-made construction systems. The most complex systems in the house, which include the metal formwork, the concrete structure, the tiles, and the interior furniture all used manual labor.Because the house is set into the ground, it maintains a constant 67-degrees year round. Additional building features and construction methods enable the house to operate without any form of heating or cooling during the year.[gallery type="rectangular" ids="22833,22832,22831,22830,22829,22828,22827,22835,22834"]
