Renovo Motors is looking to throw its hat into the electric supercar ring with its Renovo Coupe ($530,000). Renovo is based out of Silicon Valley and their mission is to "push the evolution of automotive engineering." It looks like they'll be doing just that with their coupe. Their machine utilizes three separate high voltage lithium battery packs that can charge in just 30 minutes and deliver and whopping 1000 ft-lbs of torque from a dead stop. Combined with the 500 horses the engine delivers, you'll go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. The Renovo Coupe will start delivery in 2015, so if you got a half a mil laying around you might want to reserve one.
I love Deus bikes. They continue to build works of art. No detail is overlooked. And their customers are left with a machines that provide decades of pleasure. Their latest build is no exception. The Red Pill Motorcycle By Deus Ex Machina ($CALL) came from a simple request. The customer wanted a surf bike based on his W650. And he wanted it low and lean. Custmizations include a removed air box, replaced by re-jetted carbs with twin K&N filters. Japanese headers, a Foran reverse cone muffler, custom ace bars, digital clock, and custom stainless front and rear fenders were also added. The pièce de résistance are the Deus quick release board racks. "Red Pill, to be taken twice daily. If symptoms persist, double the dose!"

Directed by the Coen brothers and starring Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bartem and Josh Brolin, No Country for Old Men ($5) tells the tales of a hunter who is in the wrong place at the wrong time when a drug deal goes wrong and there is $2m in cash sitting beside the Rio Grande. He takes the money and the true hunt begins when, Anton Chigurh (Javier Bartem) starts tracking him and killing anyone in his way. This 2007 crime drama is a real thriller that will have you glued to the screen.
The new Kickstarter by Joe Carabetta and Even Merz adds a motor to your longboard in under a minute. The Kickr ($299) is made up of a battery enclosure that attaches to your deck with two straps, a motor assembly, and a throttle pad built into the strap that controls the motor. Once the Kickr is attached just kick off and step on the throttle pad. Top speed is 20 mph and it wil go six miles between charges. If you have a longboard and want to kick up its fun value, the Kickr may be the ticket.
I would describe this shoes as funky. The brand New Nike Air Huarache NM Lagoon Blue ($162) have dropped over the pond and they feature some pretty cool detailing. These kicks feature a mesh upper for extra breathability, wrapped in a thick black and crimson dynamic flywire rope lacing system. At the heel you have a classic Huarache crimson rubber ankle strap. The who kit sits on a grey IU outsole with flex grooves for extra movement. You can picks these guys up over at Size?.
