6 Seat Luxury Submarine

6 Seat Luxury Submarine

It’s not every day you see a mini submarine that catches your eye.

I can only imagine this, but there must come a point in a billionaire’s life where they’ve run out of things to buy. There are the houses, the cars, the Michelin star restaurants, and then there’s the yacht.…

DIY 4K Projector

Once upon a time, we had vague plans to build a DIY projector from an old PC screen and some tatty bits of wood. Honestly, we’d never have done it much justice even if I hadn’t clumsily short-circuited the monitor and put an end to it.…

C’était un rendez-vous

On a quiet Sunday morning in August 1976, when most of Paris was asleep or on vacation, French film director Claude Lelouch took to the streets in his Ferrari 275GTB (or did he?). In the space of 8 minutes, he travelled 10.6km (6.6 miles) across Paris’ city centre at full speed and captured the run on a bumper-mounted 35mm camera.…

GUERRIERS DES CIMES – Benjamin Guindre

GUERRIERS DES CIMES – Benjamin Guindre

Benjamin Guindre is a French photojournalist, who is also a keen paraglider. At age 18 he did his military service under a specialist unit that introduced him to paragliding. Some years later, now a photojournalist, he returned to document the unit now called the Mountain Commando Task Force.…

Terraplanter – An Inverse Plant Pot

Terraplanter – An Inverse Plant Pot

There have been other self-watering planters before, but there are always issues with getting the right level of moisture, there’s dirt involved to make things messy, and they always look a bit, well, rubbish. The Terraplanter changes all of that – it looks great whether it’s got plants on it or not, and it’s unique design means that it waters fauna better than you can.…

The Real F132

The Real F132

Back in 2014 Aaron Beck, a Conceptual Designer from New Zealand, presented his F132 concept to the world on his blog. I remember being impressed by it nearer that time, as its exotic blend of F1 race car and 1932 Ford comes together in such a sweet package.…

Unreal Engine 5 – The Next Level In Gaming

Since the next generation games consoles were announced earlier this year, there has unsurprisingly been much hype around the hardware. The specs are out there for the PS5 and the Xbox Series X, but that hasn’t necessarily given us a taste of what they can do, especially when the PC-crowd are quick to point out that most of the hardware isn’t that new.…

Full-Size Remote Control Paraglider

There’s a few folks on YouTube trying to do new and different things with paraglider wings, but usually it involves flying in new places, new techniques, or crazy challenges in the name of entertainment. Andre Bandarra however, has just built an unmanned RC paraglider – but not a scale version, he uses his full-size wing.…

Murmurs

Murmurs

“There’s a crack in reality and something’s breaking through. Ten mind-altering tales from some of the best new drama podcast writers.” BBC, 2019

Murmurs is a series of 30 minute audio dramas that all suffer from unexplained interference. There’s a hollow, rising tension that leaves an aftertaste similar to that of the early Black Mirror episodes.…

Citroën CX – Bespoke Motorhome

Citroën CX – Bespoke Motorhome

Here’s something I spotted back in October when it went to auction. It looks like nothing I’ve ever seen.

It was originally commissioned in 1982 by an agricultural company; seemingly eager to make an impression, they used it primarily to carry their microlight and it’s wing, so that they could demonstrate aerial-crop-dusting.…
