This Is Your Life On Drugs.

London-based photographer Roman Sakovich gives us a glimpse of the drastic visual differences that substance abuse can cause in his series titled Half. By splitting his subjects’ style choices and physical appearances straight down the middle of their portraits, the photographer presents a before and after composite image that shows us two timelines—one of the addict (on the right) and one of the non-user who still has the choice to change his or her fate.

While you might think that a great deal of Photoshop was used to produce each image, Sakovich says that most of the effects were created in-camera. The transformations were accomplished with skilled costuming and makeup design rather than post splicing and merging. The result is an eye-opening look at the damaging effects of drug abuse, especially meth addiction which is known to have a considerable amount of impact on one’s physical appearance. While the photographer admits it is a stereotypical and perhaps superficial look at substance abuse, it is, nonetheless, effective.

Psy, the highest viewed artist on YouTube is back again with another memorable video.  Hangover, featuring none other that Snoop D-O-Double-Gizzle, (or Snoop Lion, whichever you prefer) was published on June 8th, and in a matter of 12 hours had well over a million views.  This new, half-english, collaboration has an entrancing beat, and hopefully can be a worth successor to the world famous Gangnam style.

Check Johammer J1, an electric motorcycle out of Austria that is styled like nothing else on the road. The work of one Johann Hammerschmid and his small team of experts, the Johammer J1 features a number of notable design decisions, including the electric motor being integrated into the rear wheel, a front wheel that uses hub-center steering and a double wishbone style front suspension mechanism, and side mirrors that offer a high-resolution display showing speed, range and other vital bits of data.

Seabob Cayago Underwater Jetski


Seabob-Cayago-Underwater-Jetski-1

The Seabob Cayago F7 turns you into a much less fish-chatty Aquaman, propelling you through water at speeds up to 9 mph. You use your own weight to steer and angle the Seabob up or down, with the onboard computer display showing you your power usage, water temperature, speed, and depth. This is apparently the first jet system in the world that features an impeller; an electric-powered rotor that sucks water in and fires it out back out of the watercraft. Since no one needs a case of the bends, all underwater models from Seabob are set to a maximum depth of 2.5 meters but scuba divers can override that and set it 40 meters.

Professional stuntman Damien Walters is used to putting his body in harm’s way to get some great shots but his latest stunt may be the most impressive yet. After seeing countless people perform a loop the loop on a bike or skateboard, Walters thought he could do one better: tackle the loop the loop on foot. Working with MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, Walters was able to figure out exactly what kind of speed he needed and when he needed it in order to complete the feet.

With the 2013 Frankurt Motor Show approaching, Ferrari has taken the wraps off their newest addition to the 458 family– the 458 speciale. Acting as the successor to the previous 430 scuderia and 360 challenge stradale, the new mid-rear-engined V8 berlinetta is designed to boost both performance and aerodynamics with a beefed up naturally aspirated V8 that can produce 597 horsepower and 398 lb.ft of torque. Launching from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.0 seconds, the speciale is considered to be the most aerodynamically efficient range production car in ferrari history with front and rear movable aerodynamics which balance downforce and cut drag – a feature that will become standard in future prancing horse production.
