radio control helicopters and aircrafts with onboard camera are nothing new but a flying contraption with a $60k camera slung underneath it, is definitely the first that we have seen and we consider it as an incredible brave act. come on, why wouldn’t it consider a brave act when a $60K RED Epic camera is slung underneath a radio control flying machine with eight tiny motors driving eight not-so-big propellers? that’s what exactly German special effect firm, OMSTUDIOS did and you can witness it in the video after the break. apparently, the folks over at the OMSTUDIOS designed this machine to take the place of crane for shooting from the air. the OM-Copter, as it is called, is capable of soaring up to 150 meters into the sky for aerial shots. sounds like a pretty good idea but i hope the creator has packed enough circuitry and gyros to take the beating from the winds when this thing goes higher up into the sky.

the anticipation that leads to anxiety associated with lo-fi analog photography is pretty much tormenting but yet, we can’t forgo our love for lo-fi photography effects like vignetting, super saturation and of course, double exposures – a trickery that can only be done faithfully by film camera or Photoshop wizardry. that’s where the Double Exposure Digi Cam comes into the picture – it combines the fun of lo-fi analog camera’s double exposures with the instant satisfaction of a digital camera. it’s kind of like the best of both worlds for casual lo-fi shutterbugs. apart from that, the camera is perfectly capable of single exposure and the good old lo-fi photography effects like vignetting and super saturated color.

in its first ever collaboration with an artiste, Fender has teamed up with rock/blues legend Eric Clapton to introduce the Eric Clapton Signature Amplifiers or EC series amp, in short. the three amps in the series, the EC Twinolux, EC Tremolux and EC Vibro-Champ are built by hand to the exact specifications of Clapton and are based on Fender’s original 50s-era amps, the 57′ Twin, 57′ Deluxe and 57′ Champ. drawing its inspiration from its good old ancestors, these amps are armed with 50s era output tube bias tremolo which is said to give more ‘throbbing pulse’ than the modern iterations, and a switchable power attenuator. other premium features include finger-joined solid pine cabinet for a warm tone, a lacquered tweed covering with vintage brownish gold grille cloth and finally, a leather handle tops up the package. with such premium features and a big name like Eric Clapton in the mix, you know these amps aren’t going to be regular priced. so if you want one, then be prepared to shell out $1,399.99 for the EC Vibro-Champ, $2,799.99 for the EC Tremolux and a hefty $4,199.99 for the top of the line EC Twinolux.

i am not quite sure if media center PC has anymore steam in them but anyhow, apparently ZOTAC, the maestro for mini-PC, thinks so. it has recently announced its latest addition to its ZBOX Nano product lineup, dubbed the ZBOX Nano VD01 series. at the heart of this palm-sized PC is a 1.2 GHz dual-core VIA Nano X2 U4025 processor and VX900H media system processor that are said to offer outstanding performance and energy-efficiency. thanks to its power graphic crunching from VIA Chrome9 graphics with ChromotionHD 2.0 processing engine, the ZBOX Nano VD01 offers “silky-smooth” playback for high-definition video formats that include Blu-ray, MPEG2, H.264, and VC-1. despite its wee size, expansion capabilities are not sacrificed. it still has space to include a 2.5-inch SATA drive (or SSD, if your prefer), and DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM module.

you know what they say about love transcends languages, races or whatever. it couldn’t be more true in this instant. just take a look at this beautiful example here: a boat themed after the ZR1 Corvette that is built from parts acquired from GM dealers, complete with styling that is unmistakably Corvette. this fine example here, the ZR48 as it is called, comes equipment with a duo of force-induction Mercury Marine V8 power plants that put out 1,350 horses (1,007 kW) each and have an interior that can accommodate up to six, and still looking like an authentic C6 cockpit. with a total of 2,700 horses on the tap, deafening roars from engine could be a problem but not for this gorgeous as its 8,000 watt sound system, along with an Apple TV and mobile WiFi, will see to it that your in-boat entertainment will overshadow the power roars.
