the new JBL On Stage certainly looks like an art sculpture which challenged the conventional speakers design (i.e. round or oblong in shape). termed as the Dynamic JBL Weave design. this could be a conversation piece in your home, an art piece which don’t have to spend top dollars to acquire. available in 2 sizes, the larger of the two is the On Stage IV features 4 x 1-inch (25mm) JBL Odyssey transducers, USB jack that syncs your iPhone/iPod with iTunes when connected to your computer, charges your iPhone/iPod while docked and an infra-red remote control. the smaller model, named, On Stage Micro III, has pretty much the same as the On Stage IV except for being smaller physically, and the Micro comes with two x 1-inch (25mm) JBL Odyssey transducers, instead. the JBL On Stage IV and the Micro III retails at US$149.95 and US99.95 respectively (correct at the time of publishing).

Bike Shelf: style plus functionality

Bike Shelf by Chris Brigham 544px(photo source: knifeandsaw.wordpress.com)

although, i don’t own a bike, i like the Bike Shelf. rather ingenious way of hanging your bike to show off to your guests or personal admiration when you feel like it. on top of just hanging up your beloved ride, you can use the top shelf to display your books, or any item that you fancy. pretty neat. seriously, if i ever have a bike, this is what i would get.

this is awesome! a couple weeks ago, Raytheon unveiled it’s 2nd generation Exoskeleton Robotic Suit. this project started as far back as 2008, when the 1st generation suit was unveiled. needless to say, this was developed for the U.S.Army but it’s potential applications are far and wide. the suit uses a combination of sensors, actuators and controllers, to ‘amplified’ the strength of human. although it may not look as ‘sleek’ as the Exoskeleton suit that Raiden wears in Metal Gear Solid, but this mark a huge advancement in this technology. as with all other innovations, thing always starts from big, but as technology matures, miniaturization of the components will no doubt be possible, and in the process making the suit even more sleek and agile.

you know BOB – the Breathing Observation Bubble? and then there is HydroBOB, an underwater scooter that allows you to roam the underwater without diving training or even if do not know how to swim. HydroBOB is the combination of the BOB with a scooter that scoots around under the water. all you have to do is pops your head into the bubble and ride like a scooter. your head don’t get wet, so those with glasses still can wear them while scooting around underwater. very nice. this is something i really want to try. wonder how well it works in open sea, with the underwater current and all that. but i got one question: what happens if you bumped into a shark well scooting underwater? hmmmm.

is this the new limited production Pagani Zonda?

Limited Production Pagani Zonda 750 544px

this upcoming purple on black (carbon-fiber) reincarnation of the Zonda is said to be based on the Cinque which means it will likely to get a 7.3 liter V12 motor developed by AMG with an output of 678 hp and 780 Nm of torque. well, want one? i guess you have to just sit and wait for now. no words of when this will be made available. but why 750? my bet is, it would be probably mean a bored-up version of Cinque engine, to 7.5 liter instead. that’s just my wild guess. either that or it simply means the 750 could be a tuned up version of the Cinque with 750 horses. we will just to wait and see.

the art of telling time: if telling time is an art to you. this a wrist watch for you. it’s not analog, neither is this digital display. it’s orange LED light bars display the time for you to figure out the time of the day – literally. the orange LED reminds us of the neon skyline of Shinjuku and at the same time, futuristic too. i have always been fascinated by TokyoFlash wrist watches ever since it’s introduction. i was amazed by the alternative ways of telling time, never mind if the methods of time-telling might be awkward (mostly). it’s definitely, an art on your wrist. seriously, do you really look at the watch to tell time or you simply look at your mobile phone for time? often, i find myself checking my iPhone for time, even if i had a wrist watch on me. wrist watch is a fashion statement and so is this Kisai Denshoku aluminum LED watch. get it?
