With its ultra-modern and sleek design, The Hornet ATV Scooter ($CONCEPT) is a scooter like you've never seen before, and it's something all ages could enjoy. Featuring four wheels and built from the highest-quality carbon fiber with added steel fittings you can be sure whoever rides this stylish machine will always be safe and secure. It also features a tapered edge on the backboard and added rear brakes for extra safety, and so you can enjoy pulling some awesome skids. Here's hoping someone will turn this design into a real product.
You will have never come across a book quite like Decoded ($28), simply because it is a rarity in that it is a book like no other. This is a collection of lyrics and the meanings behind them that have combined to tell the tale of a culture. Hip Hop is an art form, if you will a moment in history, and this is told to us by one o the most successful and provocative performers of our time; Jay-Z. This book and its author are very alike in that they are both many things at the same time. At the core of Decoded is the story of a man born into a housing project in Brooklyn, dealt drugs in Trenton during his teen years and is now a many millions look up to. An extraordinary book you won't be able to put down.
I unapologetically love my Yukon Denali. It's big, black and beautiful. The specs for the 2015 GMC Yukon ($TBA) have just been released and it looks like they made some nice updates. Base models will start off with the 5.3-liter V8 355 HP engine, which will produce about 383 foot pounds of torque. The Denali will get a 6.2 litter V8, 420 horses, and 460 foot pounds of torque. Some of the features I'm most excited about are the addition of fold-flat rear seats, with a power option, dual-screen, Blu-Ray rear-seat entertainment systems and two extra inches of leg room for the rear passengers. The 2015's will be released early in 2014. More pics after the break.(more…)
Ever wondered what the newest iPhone would look like if it was released in the 80's? Well, wonder no more. Thanks to the legendary skills of Pierre Cerveau you can feast your eyes upon the 1980s Apple Macintosh Phone Concept ($NFS). It features an analog-style dialler and a whopping 512kb of memory. This 1980's Apple Macintosh Phone Concept is every geeks wild dream! Alas, as it's only a concept it's not for sale. But don't let that stop you from drooling.
While Benchmade started making Balisong's in 1987, their latest is nothing but new school. The Benchmade 87 Balisong ($600) isn't cheap, but there's a reason for the price. If you're willing to pay a little more for the best you're going to be well rewarded. The 87 Balisong is made in the United States. The handles aren't molded but milled to exacting specifications from a single piece of titanium making it very light. Other features include a CPM-S30V steel blade, thrust bearing washers, and a magnetic latch.
