The Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430 ($150,000) is going to Geneva next month, but its not coming to the U.S. anytime soon. The N430 is powered by a 4.7-liter V8 that pushes 430 horses. Top speed is 190mph, with a 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds. It's rear wheel drive, so if you're going to pick one up you'll definitely need another ride for inclement weather. On the inside you'll find machined carbon sill plates, N430 seat logos, carbon fiber gearshift, and piano black interior trim. If you're in Europe you'll be able to pick one up starting in September this year.

In the same way that ages of trees are determined by the rings they contain within, you can consider a man's measuring stick to be his whiskers. They come in all shapes, sizes and textures but one this is for certain; they will all end up grey. Thick or thin, long or short, cropped or unkempt, the hair that grows on a mans chin says a lot more about the time he has spent on this planet than you might realize. You cannot rush growing a beard, some men simply can't manage it and there are thousands across the world who have turned it into an art form. Any fans of facial fuzz will have fun with A Book of Beards ($25).
I had never really thought that Google Glass was going to be something I would use. I just got the feeling that wearing them was some what voyeuristic. But after seeing the new app, from GlassFit, Race Yourself ($TBA) I'm starting to see the light.(more…)
The Lunecase ($40) is an intelligent case that's powered by electromagnetic energy and wirelessly provides you with visual notifications of incoming texts and calls. All electronic devices emit electromagnetic energy. The Lunecase uses this unused energy to transform the back of your phone into a notification center. Before the text or call even hits your phone's screen the Lunecase knows it's coming. All of this without the need for batteries or wires. It just makes you wonder what other potential uses are available for this unused energy. You can check out their Kickstarter campaign, which is still going on.
