Classic Italian watchmakers Panerai have just introduced an ultra-limited collection of their all-new 1940 Radiomir chronograph. The 45mm chrono features a Swiss Minerva movement and is available in platinum, red gold, and white gold versions.
The biggest, baddest Benz just got replaced by a new one that’s bigger and badder. The new 2014 S600 is M-B’s’ most luxurious sedan & it’s powered by a 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V12 engine and is literally loaded with futuristic features like Collision Prevention Assist and a jet fighter-inspired Heads Up Display.
Without any modifications to your truck, this all-terrain tread system will turn your pickup into a tank. Or a snowcat. Simply drive up the loading ramps onto the treads, lock ’em down, and then go drive your truck through a snowbank, mudbog, swamp, & other places you could never go before.
Due for release this Spring, Omega is bringing back a classic. This remake of their iconic 1969 Speedmaster Mark II retains the style that made it timeless but it gets a mechanical upgrade—the 2014 model features a co-axial calibre 3330 automatic movement with column-wheel chronograph mechanism.
In addition to being huge (65- & 85-inches) and offering a ridiculously sharp 4K display, the new, memorably-named XBR-950B TVs from Sony have a new feature called Direct LED Dimming, a function that automatically adjusts picture contrast for maximum visual impact.
Unveiled this week in Detroit, Porsche’s 2014 911 Targa features the same 350-horse flat six found in other models, as well as that same snappy gearbox – but the Targa, true to its heritage, is of course the drop top variant. This year the roof gets popped & dropped mechanically & stows under the rear glass. The addition of the silver “Targa bar” marks a return to the Targa’s original form.
At the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Chevy unveiled the new 2015 Z06 Corvette. Packing over 600-horsepower, this new American supercar has deep racing roots—borrowing engineering from the LeMans winning C7R ’Vettes tweaked just enough to make them (barely) legal for the streets.
Just 6 months ago, Sony’s most affordable 4K camcorder cost 4500 bucks. But this week at CES, they unveiled a more compact consumer 4K camcorder that’s less than half the price. This 14MP camera features SteadyShot image stabilization, Zeiss optics and captures video at 4K/30p, a quality far exceeding HD resolution.
If we said this was an Italian replica of the bed from the outer space sex scene in the 1979 Bond film Moonraker, you’d believe us. Too bad there wasn’t one. But if there was, this should’ve been the bed. If features shades that raise & lower for darkness on demand, as well as a built in PC, reading lights, drop down HD display, surround sound & more.
No sense destroying the design of your den by slapping a 4k projector on the ceiling when you can just put it next to the wall. It uses lasers to project a 4K display on the wall anywhere from 66- to 147-inches across & features 4 HDMI ports in the back for plugging in all your little dongles and whatnot. Is this the future of television projection?
