VUHL 05 Supercar

exotic supercars are no longer exclusive to big names like Lamborghini, Pagani and the likes. more and more ‘independent’ automakers have sprung up in the recent years and from the most unlikely countries. we seen pleasant surprises from Russia, Polish, Spain, Middle East, Denmark and now, get ready to meet the latest entrant to the supercar domain, the Mexican VUHL 05 Supercar. with a design along the line of topless concepts like the KTM X-Bow, you know this roadster has but only one object: go at great speed on the track. and speed it certainly has; its Ford-sourced 2.0-liter turbo four EcoBoost engine puts out 285 horses (212 kW) and 310 lb-ft of torque (420 Nm), and together with a six-speed manual gearbox, enabling this 1,532 lbs (or 695 kg, which about 150 lighter than the X-Bow, if anyone is counting) super roadster to make the century sprint in just 3.7 seconds and finally maxing out at 152 mph (245 km/h).

LEGO Lord Of The Rings: The Tower of Orthanc

the Tower of Orthanc was probably one of the most prominent and recognizable icon in the Lord of the Rings trilogy – apart from the little man with huge, hairy feet, and the grey-turn-white wizard, and the fiery Eye of Sauron, and the one Ring that rules them all, and… anyway, you get the idea. this dark, imposing symbol of Isengard was home to the white wizard Saruman, who turns out to be ‘not so white’ after all. here’s your chance to replay the memorable scenes of Gandalf the Grey wizard-slugging out with the white wizard Saruman that earned the Grey a stay in the tower-top prison before breaking out in absolute style on the Great Eagle with the LEGO Lord Of The Rings: The Tower of Orthanc.

The Perfect Wallet by Ball and Buck

calling a wallet The Perfect Wallet is nothing short of a bold statement, but by the look of it, The Perfect Wallet by Boston-based brick and mortar store Ball and Buck might just deserve the namesake. handcrafted in the USA from the same leather as used in the Red Wing shoes, this wallet features bold stitching and has four card slots on the outside that could hold up to eight of your frequently used cards, and at the heart of this leathery beauty, is a inconspicuous slot for some cash. the leather used is so awesome that Ball and Buck equates the feel of the leather to the skin of a perfectly tanned supermodel. though we are not so keen in associating leather with human skins. anyway, that’s beside the point. the point is, if you ever ‘caress’ the leather of the Red Wing shoes, you know it is of top notch quality and so, you would be expecting that same quality for these wallets.

CherryCharger Wireless Induction Charger

no. that’s not a modified Mac mini, though it does have an uncanny resemblance to the Apple’s mini desktop computer. it is the CherryCharger wireless induction charger from the same dude who brought to you the weighty ConcreteCharger and this one is for the wood lovers. crafted out of old reclaimed black cherry planks sourced just outside of Scranton, Pennsylvania, the CherryCharger features the same technology like its concrete counterpart, but now with a soft top made out of wool felt instead of the cork top. sandwiched between the beautiful black cherry base and the wool felt top is a cool polycarbonate “light blade” that’s design to emit light indicating the charging status. the example you see here is a single device charger and it also uses the widely adopted Qi wireless standard, which means any devices equipped with the same wireless charging standard such as the Nexus 4 and the Nokia Lumia 920, or devices fitted with Qi wireless standard cases and dongles, will work with the CherryCharger.
