Have You Ever Had A Floating Drink?

We almost chose not to blog this incredible creation from Nikola Zistakis, simply because the staff wanted them for themselves, but we chose not to be selfish.  If holding a fancy glass of bourbon scotch wasn’t classy enough, the Levitating Cup makes The act of drinking even cooler. The cup/glass hovers magically over its base, almost as if it’s attained nirvana, or is being abducted by aliens.

Using quantum levitation to achieve this feat, the cups are made from shatter-proof faux glass and come with chrome plated magnetic underside. The glasses/cups come in great variety, depending on whether you’re a juice, beer, coffee, wine, or even a dessert person. Plus, since these glasses are connected to their bases through a magnetic field, they don’t accidentally tip or spill over. They just pirouette around on spot in their own elegant style.  To pick up some of your own right here.

The Incredible Final ‘Star Wars: Rouge One’ Trailer.


The action-packed final trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is here, and it features plenty of exciting new footage from the Gareth Edwards-directed prequel.  We get our first proper look at Mads Mikkelsen as Galen Erso, more of Forest Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera, and of course another glimpse of the returning man in black, Darth Vader.

What It Looks Like When André Josselin Takes A Trip To Chicago. (Pt.2)


Not too long ago, there was a post about German photographer André Josselin‘s photos during his trip to Lollapalooza.  There were so many photos we couldn’t put them all into one post, so in part 2, we’re going to pick up right where we left off.  Once again you can tell by the rest of his collection how incredibly talented of a photographer he is.

John Wick 2: Morpheus Is Fighting Neo!


Everyone who’s seen The Matrix remembers the classic scene where Mouse runs into the galley of the Nebuchadnezzar, and shouts to the crew “Morpheus is fighting Neo!”.  I had that level of excitement when I saw the first teaser trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2, and for very good reason.  This second installment see’s Keanu Reeves as John Wick traveling the globe, getting into a western style shoot out with Common, and coming face to face in a stand off with his old friend Laurence Fishburne. Check the trailer below.

The Roland 909 DJ Gear.


Roland is to start manufacturing vinyl DJ gear with two new products: the TT-99 turntable and DJ-99 mixer.  Both products have been designed to look like the classic TR-909, with the same grey and orange livery. The reveal follows the announcement of Roland’s revival of the drum machine in compact form, the TR-09.   Apart from the TT-99 looking a lot like a classic Technics SL-1200 with a fancy paint job, there’s not much to distinguish it from other turntables on the market. However, it does have an affordable price point of $349, which puts it on a par with Pioneer DJ’s most recent offering.


Similarly, the DJ-99 is just a simple two-channel mixer, though it is reasonably priced at £249. Apart from a dedicated DVS output for digital DJs, it’s as basic as they come. A release date for both is yet to be confirmed.  The 909-themed gear isn’t the only DJ equipment launched by Roland as part of its 909 Day celebration. The company has also teamed up with Serato on the DJ-808, a combination of DJ controller and drum machine.

Get Your First Look At The New ‘Power Rangers’.


So it’s a fairly well known fact that the Power Rangers, much like many popular shows/properties is getting a reboot.  This morning we got our first look at the teaser trailer for the official Power Rangers film.  I say official film because last year an amazing UNofficial short film was released, that you can see be clicking here.  While some people were confused as to weather or not the official movie would follow the same path as the fan film, this concern is more than put to bed.  The new trailer seems a bit more like ‘Chronicle’, mixed with a dash of ‘Twilight’.  And although just the word “Twilight” may be off-putting to some, the basic concept of teenagers in a small town some of whom have special abilities is what I’m getting at.  There are some darker aspects to the teaser as well.  Rita Repulsa, the main villain of the piece says the words “I’ve killed other Rangers before”, which is something that was NEVER said in the original series.  “I’ll get you!” was the most common threat used in the original show, and even in the 1995 movie, the threat of death was never really present.  The trailer teases the suits, and has an apparent lack of Zords, however, if you were a Might Morphin Power Rangers fan back in the day, sound off in the comments and let us know how you feel about this reboot.
