Classified Moto out of Richard, Virginia creates beautiful custom bikes. The bikes are not only great to look at but they're awesome to drive. CM has now released a line up of bike inspired Lamps that would be a great addition to any room. The Salvaged Motorcycle Furniture by Classified Moto ($100-$429) is built from salvaged parts that came from japanese motorcycles of the '70's and '80's. The parts are welded together to create an elegant designed piece of furniture. Each lamp is made to order from real parts so every piece is unique and will have its own character.
On your next camping trip or backyard cookout, make sure you do it in style with the EcoZoom Versa Rocket Stove ($129). The Versa allows you to cook with your choice of fuel, including wood, charcoal, or solid biomass fuel. It features a fully insulated vertical combustion chamber, a combustion chamber and top door lined with refractory metal, a reinforced metal frame, a three-prong stove top and stainless steel handles covered with silicone grips to make sure they stay cool to the touch.
This product probably has limited mass appeal, but it was just too cool to pass up. The Qumarion ($750) is a poseable action figure that allows comic book artists and animators to create on-screen CG character poses in real-time. The Qumarion is equipped with 32 sensors spread over 16 joints to capture movements and feed them back to your system. This will allow animators to create key frames far more easily than is possible today. Qumarion is only being offered in Japan at the moment, but here's hoping they open it up to other countries in the future.
Bryan Cranston makes his post Breaking Bad debut in the remake of Godzilla ($TBA) which is scheduled to hit movies theaters in May. By the looks of the trailer this looks to be one of the best adaptations to date. 2014 Godzilla was written by Max Borenstein and Dave Callaham and directed by Gareth Edwards. The cast also seems to be top notch with stars like Ken Watanabe from Inception, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson from Kick-Ass. Can't wait for this one to hit theaters.
Just before the New York International Auto show, Lincoln has released a Lincoln Navigator SUV Concept ($TBA) that features a nautical design which makes you wish you had a beach house.The outside of the concept is a vast improvement over the current model replacing a boxy look with a more rounded modern feel. Instead of the standard four doors, it comes with two massive gullwing doors and automatic triple step running boards.When you lift the hood, you'll find a 400 horsepower 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6. For my tastes, I would've preferred to see a V8 at the minimum.On the inside, the first thing you'll notice is a widescreen display for every seat including the rear row. Additional features include park assist, active safety features, and an intercom system.If Lincoln can up the engine power a bit, they may have a winner on their hands.
