I want to see one of these bad boys on the road. Of course check out additional pics after the break.(more…)
I think I'm in love. The newly released Raspberry Pi 2 Model B ($35) is the latest update to the already legendary microcomputer board. The latest Raspberry Pi 2 comes with an updated 900MHz ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core processor and twice the ram, going from 512mb to a full 1GB. The developers claim the new upgrades will provide up to six times the performance of the previous board. All of this for the same price. And Because raspberry is always thinking of its users the placement of all the connectors and the ports will stay the same, so you be able to continue using the same case and accessories if you just want to change the board.
Welcome to the biggest book on the Simpsons EVER! Packed into this one humungous episode guide, Simpsons World ($35) is 20 years worth of programs, it doesn't get much better than that! To call The Simpsons just a TV show is a travesty, this is an institution. They celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2010 and this book was produced to give every Simpsons fanatic a keepsake book to commemorate a momentous event in American TV history. This is mighty tome, with more that 1,200 pages of episode recaps in glorious full color and if you only have one Simpsons book in your collection (shame on you!) make it this one.
All I have to say is wow and thanks to the guys over at Silodrome for bringing this amazing artist to our attention. Jomar Machado creates some of the most beautiful futuristic vehicle creations I've ever seen. He started his career creating story-boards, layouts and art for print. Eventually his employer, JWThompson went from analog to digital and Jomar joined the change. In looking at his blog, his tools of the trade seem to be the standard fare 3D Studio Max, Mental Ray, HDR Light Studio and Photoshop. But what he does with these tools is nothing short of amazing. Check out the slide show above of his works and enjoy. If Jomar ever decides to sell prints of his amazing artwork, I'd be first in line to pick one up. Make that two.
