The Nomad Collapsible Soaking Tub With Coil ($999) allows you to take the comforts of home with you no matter how far off the beaten path you go. The Nomad can be setup in the backyard or folded down to fit in a 14" x 16" x 30" duffel bag and taken camping. It holds 225 gallons of water and measures 60" dia. x 24" h. The heater coil can be heated with propane, natural gas or firewood. It's made from 1.25" stainless steel tubing and uses thermosyphoning to circulate the water. If you're roughing it, they suggest using a pump like the Honda WX10 to drain and fill the tub.
The Frankfurt Motor Show just left another gift under the tree. The Brabus B63S 6x6 ($TBA) is the designers take on the Mercedes-Benz G63 6x6. Brabus has taken the already capable off-roader and made it a beast. They've updated the twin-turbo 5.5 liter V8 so that it now gets 700 horses. This huge machine can now get to 60 mph in under 7.4 seconds. Additional specs include exterior carbon fiber accents, LED daytime running lights, premium leather upholstery for the interior, Alcantara trim, bespoke headliner, and alloy pedals. Expect the B63S to cost over $500,000 when the price is finally released. Check out more pictures after the break.(more…)
If the trailer is any indication, The Signal ($TBA) looks to be right up my alley. The movie stars Laurence Fishburne, Brenton Thwaites (Nick), Beau Knapp (Jonah), and Olivia Cooke (Hailey). The movie starts off with Nick, Jonah, and Olivia taking a road trip to Cali and on the way discovering a signal that could lead them to Nomad. Nomad is a genius computer hacker who hacked into MIT when they were students there.
Following the signal, the friends end up at a shack in the woods. Nick and Jonah start exploring when they hear Hailey's screams coming from the car. When they get outside they see something that kicks the movie into high gear.
The next scene is Nick waking up in a wheelchair in a research facility. He is told by Laurence Fishburne that he's come in contact with an Extraterrestrial biological Entity, and that Hailey is in a coma, and Jonah is missing.
Check out the Signal when it comes out this June. When you click the link to the website you need to type 'help' to get the main menu. It's pretty cool the way they set it up to look like a computer prompt.http://youtu.be/WV44-lQGlwk
