Japanese machine shop owner hitoshi takahashi built this 11-meter-tall robotic walking beetle called KABUTOM RX-03. The mobile sculpture, which takes its name from kabuto — a type of rhinoceros beetle typical to Japan — features characteristics typical to the insects like pointing horns and elongated legs. With over 30 moving parts, the machine includes a variety of technological details, such as the ability to shoot steam from the top of its head and its remote controlled legs that can reach speeds up to 4 kilometers per hour. Weighing 17 tons in total, the robot can transport up to seven people with one driver riding on top and six occupants fitting in an internal compartment.

Automotive Photography.


I love cars.  Just to put it simply.  I grew up in a place where street racing was very common, and some people spent more time working on their cars than they spent attending the local high school.  Luxury cars, foreign cars, or exotic cars, don’t make a difference, I’m developed a solid love for automobiles of any type.  (Even thoough, I feel like the ONLY thing in the world sexier than Jessica Castillo is a fresh Aston Martin).  When I recently came across a collection of automotive photography, I was enthused to say the least.  This collection comes from all different photographers from all over the world, of all different cars, of all shapes, sizes, and styles.  I didn’t chose the photos for what cars were in them, but for the composition of the photo, the angles, focal points, lighting, style, and depth all contribute to the beauty of the car being displayed, and I didn’t want to limit what I posted just because the car in the photo was old.  So take a look both above and below and hopefully you’ll see as much beauty in these photos as I do.
