If you have a 6th generation iPod nano laying around you need to check out the Lunatik premium conversion kit ($45-$50). It takes your iPod nano and turns it into a futuristic wristwatch. The kit is made from aircraft grade aluminum and seamlessly integrates with your iPod nano. We now that Apple no longer makes the square nano, but you can still get plenty of 6th generation iPod Nano's on eBay.
If you love innovative contemporary architecture that utilizes landscapes in ways never dreamed of, then you'll absolutely die for the Casa Brutale X OPA ($TBA). A concept in design Casa Brutale, very much reminds me of the Cliff House By Modscape. I do find the OPA design a bit more elegant.OPA describes Casa Brutale as,"a geometrical translation of the landscape. It is an unclad statement on the simplicity and harmony of contemporary architecture. It is a chameleonic living space, created to serve its owner and respect the environment. It is the inverted reference to Casa Malaparte, encased and protected by the tender earth that has hosted the human civilization for millennia. It is a complete study of aesthetics, structure, function and engineering, which thoroughly detailed, awaits solely its realisation." There is no denying the home's visually stunning beauty which comes from its basic underlying simplicity and minimal interior designs. The house is defined by three concrete slabs, and a pool made from reinforced glass. The pool allows natural light to shine through into the lower levels bringing every surface to life. The lower levels being inside the cliff benefit from thermal insulation, as well as the cooling properties of having a body as the roof. As you enter the structure you descend 50 stairs and are greeted with breathtaking views of the vast body of water in front of you. OPA ends their description by saying that, "Casa Brutale redefines the harmonious coexistence of human and nature in a poetic homage to pure Brutalism."I completely agree.
There are a number of movies based on the life of King Arthur, but the 1981 version, Excalibur ($10) is the one by which all others are judged. The movie was directed by John Boorman and stars such greats as Nigel Terry, Helen Mirren, Paul Geoffrey, Nicol Williamson, Gabriel Byrne, Liam Neeson, Patrick Stewart and Nicholas Clay. In it, Merlin offers his help and powers to Arthur, who becomes King after drawing Excalibur from a stone. I love this version of Excalibur because it's not Richard Gere's version, which to say its not a fluff piece. It's raw and gritty and has everything you would expect; Camelot, the Lady of the Lake, Guinevere, the Knights of the Round Table, the Battle of Mount Badon, and of course Sir Lancelot. This movie was brilliantly shot and has a fantastic soundtrack. The final scene is an absolute work of art.
Go anywhere. That's the basic concept behind scramblers. The soon to be released 2016 BMW R NineT Scrambler ($TBA) looks like it'll hold to that montra very nicely. The new bike is built to be minimal, but I'm sure customizers out there will find ways to make it more so. The NineT Scrambler features a classic 1200 cc boxer engine and a high dual silencer giving it a power sound. The difference from a standard NineT includes repositioned handlebars and seat to promote an upright, relaxed seating position. The Scrambler also has a slightly longer spring travel to help cushion the blow from rough terrain.
The word I would use to describe the Jaguar F-Type R ($100,000) is smooth. Its lines evoke effortless aggression. You can almost hear it laughing at the idea that any wind could slow it down. This beautifully styled ride is powered by a 5.0 liter 550 horsepower supercharged V8 that delivers 502 lb-ft from just 3,500 rpm. For your money you'll get a car that can accelerate form 0-60 mph in just 4.0 seconds. Not too shabby. Additional features include a 186 mph top speed, 20 inch Gyrodyne silver alloy wheels, super performance braking with red calipers, sport suspension, and switchable exhaust.
