Family homes do not have to be monstrous to be beautiful. The Fran Silvestre Arquitectos Balint House ($TBA) is a perfect example of this. Balint uses ellipticals to minimize the impact on the site. The home is located off of beautiful golf course near Valencia and it features a large main living area that includes a kitchen that overlooks a crescent shaped pool. Above that area is a large master bedroom suite with a roof terrace that overlooks the back of the home and two additional bedrooms. The home reminds me a futuristic spacecraft readying to take off at any moment.

It's almost sacrilegious to mess with a Harley, but the guys over at DP Customs are pros and the results are awesome. Based out of Arizona and run by Jarrod and Justin Del Prado, DP customs takes stock bikes and turns them into street machines that look like they'd be comfortable on any track. The 2003 Harley Sportster by DP Customs ($TBA) started out as a standard 2003 1200cc Harley Sportster. DP slapped a custom exhaust on it, new breaks, an awesome paint job, and much more.

Finally a replacement for my Apple TV! The Ouya Video Game Console ($99.00) is a former Kickstarter project. Ouya is a new open source video gaming console, that comes with the main console and a single gamepad. The gamepad comes with analog sticks, triggers, buttons, a D-pad and a touchpad. The touchpad will make transitioning from mobile to console gaming more palatable. You can buy extra gamepads for $30.00. The reason I'm all excited is that I'm tired of having to jailbreak my Apple TV and now I can get a gaming console and install XBMC so that I can get access to my video and music library.
