Digital Destruction Watch by Ross McBride


06 03 02

The Digital Destruction Watch is a good analogy for how old has to make way for the new. Designed by Ross McBride the watch features a face where the analog dial seems to have been destroyed by the elements and made way for the digital era.

Time marches on. The old must make way for the new, but sometimes it does not go willingly as with the Digital Destruction Watch. Set in an analog body, the traditional mechanical dial seems to have shattered to make way for the digital LCD screen. The “crown” is actually a button that switches between time, second, and date modes, as well as activate the backlight. -Ross McBride

Bye Bye Bugatti: See The New Fastest Production Car On Earth.

American supercar the Hennessey Venom GT has hit 265.7mph (427.6kph) to beat the Bugatti Veyron’s existing record on a technicality to steal the top speed crown.  The technicality in question is engine tuning. A standard production version of the Hennessey Venom GT managed to come close to 270mph along a 2.9 mile stretch of runway whereas the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, using Volkswagen’s 5-mile+ straight, got closer still, hitting 267.8 mph (431kph).  After setting its record, the production version of the car had its engine slightly detuned so that its top speed would be limited to a mere 258mph in order to guarantee the tires don’t disintegrate.

Therefore, though it is still technically the world’s fastest petrol engine car, the Bugatti is not the world’s fastest street-legal production car.  The Hennessey Venom GT was tested in February but the figures have only now been ratified. The car, which is loosely based on the Lotus Exige, is powered by a twin turbo-charged 7.0-liter V-8 engine. It pumps out 1244 horespower and, as the car weighs exactily 1244kg, its power to weight ratio is 1000 horsepower per tonne.

In February of 2013, the Venom GT officially became the quickest accelerating production vehicle in the world as it ran 0-300 km/h in 13.63 seconds, thus establishing a new Guinness World Record.  The car also managed to go from 0-60 mph in 3.05 seconds and 0-100 mph in 5.88 seconds, and it ran the standing quarter-mile in 10.29 seconds at 158.83 mph.  Only 29 Venom GTs are scheduled to be built and each will cost their lucky owner $1.2 million plus shipping, not including options.

Futuristic Ring Clock


04 03 02

CGSociety user, Cyber recently designed a ring clock, a mechanical ring made from stainless steel that displays the time. It has three rings that rotate separately, displaying the hour, minutes and seconds. An indicator ensures that you put the ring on properly, and the current time is highlighted. Not only is this little gadget functional, but it’s also quite stylish.

White And White Wall Clock.


This wall clock “White & White”  was created by designer Vadim Kibardin from Russia. The White & White Clock is a modern 3D interpretation of the traditional digital clock. Nothing else, simply time. In dark hours the light sensitive sensor changes the brightness of the digits to a less intense white. All of the digits are part of a single unit, and as the title suggests, it switches between two shades of white.

The Ninja Time Watch.


This little beast (named the Ninja Time watch) has two “eyes” which show the hour and the minute, while the rest of the watch is dedicated to framing them in a way that looks assuredly ninja in style. The entire casing is made from molded plastic, the dials controlled by the ninja’s “ears” so you can set the time whenever you like.
