Of course your homemade videos lack the smooth, fluid cinematics of a real movie. That’s because movies are shot using cameras on wheels or dollies, so they can sweep through the shots, creating a smooth, natural pan. Now an MIT engineering student has created a simpler, more portable and much cheaper way for you to get the dolly effect. It’s called Cineskate, basically, a tripod on wheels.
The Ducati Diavel is a stand-alone masterpiece from Italy’s most progressive moto maker. Ducati certainly doesn’t need to team up with Mercedes-Benz customizers AMG to make this bike better but they did. AMG’s upgraded wheels, Alcantara exhaust and a few other cosmetics complete the package making an already silly-sick bike even gnarlier.
Remember to save the receipt when you buy the “world’s brightest laser you can legally own.” Because when the taxman comes knocking, you’ll want to add this splurge to your other “business” expenses. You’ll get the deduction because nobody in the world, including your tax guy, knows what handheld lasers are really for.
If you’re the traditional meat and potatoes type, you should probably try Cherkees. They’re potato chips loaded with chunks of beef jerky. The good news: they’re not fried plus they’re low in fat and pack 12 grams of protein per serving.
Before you take your Motocrossboard into the woods for some high-speed tree slalom, you might want to switch your HMO to a PPO. Sure, the deductible is higher but the catastrophic coverage is much better. We’re not saying you’re guaranteed to wreck yourself but standing atop a 50CC motor while weaving through the woods is asking for it. Begging actually.
It looks like a phone but it’s not a phone, it’s a car stereo. The Parrot Asteroid, an Android-powered, in-car receiver offers tons of service apps, thousands of web radio stations, voice recognition, and hands-free calling. But no, unfortunately it won’t play your old tapes.
If your girl’s current camera was underwear, it’d be those big, white, saggy granny panties. Can’t have that. Now, on the other hand if this new Canon Powershot ELPH was underwear, it would be a hot pink, silk number. If you go out and buy her one, it’s kinda like a gift for both of you.
Who cares about a staple remover? Well, apparently “Desk Artist” Jac Zagoory does. His ferocious staple chomping creatures like a lion, bear, cobra, gator, etc., are rendered in pewter, turning the dullest office tool in the history of humanity into something special.
Pointy helmets and superiority complexes, yes, but humor is not something we normally associate with carbon fiber bikes. That’s why the ironically named Foundry Bikes, who build only with carbon-fiber, is kinda funny. Their custom framesets are about to hit stores and unlike their splashy-graphic, blinged-out competitors, Foundry frames look seriously cool. What’s better than black? Shipping in early 2012.
Which do you lose more often, your phone or the remote? Regardless, when you hook yourself up with a Voomote, you turn your iPhone into a universal remote controller, thus cutting your search time in half. Or you double it; depends on your outlook.
