It’s easy to forget how much the comic stylings of the 60’s and 70’s have inspired modern films and just how timeless those two-dimensional, spandex-clad superheroes can be. This series replaces live action with the lines they were born from, interlacing cinematography with storyboard.

W Motor’s Super Car Design

Lykan Hypersport supercar has exceeded all expectations when it came to demand. Especially when one considers the heavy $3.4 million dollars price tag. W Motors was planning on only building seven units of the Lykan Hypersport, but after the 2013 Qatar Motor Show unveiling, have received more than 100 orders. A 750hp mid-mounted twin turbo flat-six engine capable of achieving 0-100km/h times in 2.7 seconds and a top speed of 395km/h meant this car had very high ambitions from the start. Throw in the fact that it uses real diamonds and gold elements throughout the lighting components and interior.

3D printed Organs From Regenerative Living Cells


ears01

In the most recent medical development in artificial organ creation, a team of scientists and physicians from cornell university have engineered 3D printed life-like ears used to treat children born with a congenital deformity called microtia, or help individuals who have lost part or all of their external ear in an accident or from cancer. The artificial body tissue is made by processing additive gels found within living cells – with collagen derived from rat tails and cartilage taken from cow ears. The modelling process is digitized into an assemble-able human ear, where then high-density gel, similar to the consistency of jell-o is injected into a mold – resulting in flesh resembling that of a human-being. In the future, the engineers will look at new ways to develop populations of human ear cartilage cells from patients instead of cow cartilage, which would reduce any possibility of rejection.

Paper Display – Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair


pav3

Check out this Nike store display by the Finland-born, Amsterdam-based illustrator Kustaa Saksi before, but this time, it is his fantastical paper display at the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair. The intricate and delicate display from 1120 stacks of A4-size paper (total of 700,000 sheets of paper) suspended from 44,000 points in the ceiling. Ceiling frescoes, church domes, altars – these were all part of the inspiration for Saksi and Wingårdh who concluded that paper is still them most commonly used means of communication and therefore the perfect material for the display.

Pitbull “Welcome 2 Dade County”


pitbull

Miami based rapper Pitbull decides to let loose on Lil Wayne after the YMCMB rapper took shots at his home town. Although he was one the rappers we least expected to return shots, Pitbull is taking shots at Weezy on his latest remix to “Harlem Shake” in a track he called ‘Welcome 2 Dade County.’  “I’m self-made, I’m self-paid / I grew up with no daddy, I’m from Miami-Dade,” Pitbull spits on the track. “It’s a deposition / Watch what you speak / Who’s the definition of Miami?  Me / I move cultures, don’t believe me? / Watch and see.”

This isn’t only time Pitbull mentions Cash Money on the track either. The rapper also opens up about Cash Money co-founders Birdman and Slim, alluding to them being the ones making money off of Wayne’s success. “You got money, yeah that’s sweet / But we all know Slim and Baby really eat / You talk Miami, yes you talkin’ Heat / Moral of the story, don’t shit where you eat.”
