Have You Ever Seen A Low Poly Truck?


Designed with an aesthetic that’s instantly memorable, the Karlmann King SUV is a “Ground Stealth Fighter” with a design that one could characteristically and literally describe as edgy. It ditches the organic, aerodynamic design that most cars go for, and opts for something polygonal and frankly, beastly.

Created by a worldwide team of nearly 2000 designers, developers, and engineers, the Karlmann King SUV is based on the Ford F-550 chassis and packs a 6.8-Liter V10 gasoline engine. Each automobile is hand-made, requiring 30,000 painstaking man hours to piece together. Made to look like an absolute monster, the exterior is crafted from carbon fiber and sheet steel, with an optional bulletproof coating. With that sort of armor and aesthetic, the Karlmann King is the kind of vehicle you’ll look at with feelings of awe coupled with a hint of fear. The price of that feeling?? Close to $4 million.

Audi is looking to get in on all the CES action as the brand announces they will be unveiling the Audi Sport Quattro Laserlight concept car during the Las Vegas electronics show. LED headlights are still a newer technology on the automotive scene, but the German auto maker is looking to the future for the headlamps on this beast. This Audi concept has been outfitted with laser diode headlights that are capable of illuminating the road up to 1,640 feet. Of course what’s under the hood is just as impressive. Audi has equipped the Quattro Laserlight with a plug-in hybrid drive system that pumps out a whopping 700 horsepower while still being able to get 94 miles to the gallon. There is plenty more technology used throughout the vehicle including Audi’s MMI multimedia system, a system that controls all of the car’s on-board electronics. Sport Quattro concepts have been popping up more frequently, and while Audi won’t commit to the Laserlight specifically, they have confirmed that some form of the concepts will be landing at dealers in the coming years.

The Leap.


Remember how cool Tom Cruise was in “Minority Report” when he was manipulating computer data on a life-sized clear screen with his bare hands? Well, we may be approaching a similar plane of awesomeness once we adopt The Leap, which is itching to replace and outshine the good ol’ reliable but tired computer mouse.

Big strides have been taken to make virtual reality more of a reality. Today we’re enjoying gadgets that have us believing that we’ve crossed over to the flipside. Video game consoles such as the Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 + Kinect, and touchscreen tablets, smartphones, 3D televisions and movies have been eagerly embraced not only by geeks but by the general public. But they have us wanting more. Now Leap Motion is taking huge “leaps” towards virtual reality by offering an entirely new and more intuitive way to interact with our computers.

Imagine what sort of Pandora’s box The Leap is opening up for those who work with and rely on 3D imaging; i.e. graphic artists, game developers, architects, scientists, doctors, engineers. The Leap could be one of the shiniest tools we have in our toolbox thus far.

And if you think The Leap costs a fortune, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. The Leap device that simply hooks up to your USB port is only $69.99 plus shipping, but you have to pre-order and expect yours to arrive between December 2012 through January 2013. Supplies are limited. Go to LeapMotion.com to learn more about this groundbreaking technology and be one of the firsts to own a Leap.

USB thumb drives are everywhere. Many people have more than one and they’re easy to lose because of their small size. The Candle Holdem comes with 5 USB thumb drives with keychain attachments. When you plug one in, an LED lights up. From a distance, if you plug in all 5, they look like a set of candles. Now you will always know where to put your thumb drives and keys.

The Brand New Ford Mustang GT.


If you happen to think that your Ford GT Mustang is a little boring, look no further.  After seeing these photos provided by Autoblog we were pretty much cleaning up our own drool. Reifen Koch slaps the car with a facelift using the Cervini body kits which leaves the Mustang looking amazing. The “Konquistador” package also includes a side-exit exhaust system, a full KW coilover kit and a hydraulic axle-lift system. Check out the whole press release at Autoblog if you’d like, if not enjoy the photos below.  I just want to know what my homie Yum Yum thinks of this…

The 2012 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.


Ferrari has recently released a new video with the F12 Berlinetta hitting the track, after the supercar was officially presented to the public at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

The newest supercar in Ferrari’s lineup, the F12 Berlinetta, 599 GTB’s successor is once again placed into the spotlights, and after the automaker showed us just a day before how the model came to life, this time the F12 Berlinetta is going around the track, proving its skills, its racing pedigree and revealing that wonderful engine sound.

 

The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, which is the fastest ever road-going car made by the company, is powered by a 6.3 liter V12 engine, developing a total output of 730 horsepower and 509 lb-ft of torque, out of which 80 percent is available from only 2,500 rpm. Ferrari says that the F12 Berlinetta can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 8.5 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 340 km/h.

According to the Italian based automaker, the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is a result of the collaboration between Ferrari Styling Centre and Pininfarina. More details on the newest Ferrari supercar will be announced close to its launch.
