The guys over at Sartorie Meccanhice believe in making simple bikes with no frills. They favor open exhausts and tuned carbs. The Buell X1 by Sartorie Meccanhice ($TBA) is a great example of what can be done with that montra and a pretty standard looking street bike. The Guys over at S.M. took the ordinary and turned it into a beautiful cafe racer. Features include an entirely custom backend, replacement of the stock tank for a norton endurance tank made from fiberglass, a brand new giant carburator in place of electronic injection. The end result is simply gorgeous.
One of our major philsophies we have at Muted is if you use it every day you need to buy the highest quality available. Concerning EDC lights, the Maratac Copper Flashlight Rev 3 ($55) fits perfectly into that category. This light is machined from a solid piece of copper billet stock. This isn't a copper plated flashlight. It's hand-finished and measures 2.6" long with a diameter of .5", and weighs just 28 grams without the battery and 40 grams with the battery. The Maratac utilizes a Cree XP-G2 R5 LED light that lasts up to an amazing 50,000 hours. Additional features include a lens that's been coated with an anti-reflective coating, three brightness levels, a clip and o-rings.

This bad boy is not for civilian use, but I'm hoping they create a civilian version just like they did with the Hummer. The Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon LAPV (Light Armored Patrol Vehicle) 6.X ($TBA) is a military vehicle for patrolling war zones and areas of instability around the world. The LAPV 6.X can carry over 2,866 pounds of cargo and pretty much take it anywhere you want to go. It features a high torque common-rail diesel engine which can plow through any obstacle, on-the-fly adjustable suspension, 18 inches of ground clearance, and a full combat communications and jamming system. The LAPV 6.X is something you'd definitely want to get your hands on if there was a zombie apocalypse.

This has to be one of the coolest uses for a 3D printer that I've seen. Theo Jansen is a Dutch artist who is known for creating gigantic creatures out of PVC that can walk on their own. He's taken the same structures, shrunk them down, and 3D printed them to create the 3D Printed Strandbeests ($56-$113). There are four of these creatures available in various sizes which your can purchase from Shapeways. There are also two propeller kits available, and when attached they allow your Strandbeest to move with a little air from your mouth, fan, or blower. Check out the video below the features both the full-sized and miniature Strandbeests.
