What if Apple and Star Wars came together and produced the droids we’re all looking for? Well concept artist Martin Hajek wondered the same thing after finishing his Apple Lightsabre concept design and seeing J.J Abrams wondrous new Star Wars trailer. So after clearing out the scavenging Jawas and shortly after taking to the drawing board out rolled the magnificent Apple iBB-A Droid ($NFS). With a built in projector, circular touch-screen and authentic Apple colours this super detailed Apple iBB-A 3D model would look right at home in J.J Abrams latest Star Wars instalment.
Easter Jeep Safari is a 9 day event, that starts off in Moab Utah and consists of trail rides and day long trips. This year it will run from March 28 - April 5th. Every year for the event Jeep unveils new concepts and it looks like they hit a home run this year with their 2015 Jeep Chief Concept ($NFS).The Chief features a vintage look based on Cherokee's from the 1970s. This updated version is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 paired with a six-speed manny. It also includes a two inch-lift kit, Fox shocks, vintage Ocean blue paint, and 17-inch mag wheels.There a currently no plans for this ride to hit production, but I hope car companies are paying attention, because well-built vintage looking cars are awesome. I just wish Landrover kept the same vintage styling for their new Defender release scheduled to hit the U.S.A in 2016. That would've been cooler than the soccer mom version they are releasing.
