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.…

Watch with a light face and 24 hours per revolution

24-hours/revolution

I’m not a fan of spending a lot of money on fashion accessories like watches, but this one is definitely interesting. The company’s ethos is to “slow down” which seems like a great idea if you are lucky enough to have a life that allows such a lax approach to time management.…

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.…

Death And Valor On An American Warship Doomed By Its Own Navy

ProPublica have published a well-written series of rich content articles about the fatal collisions between commercial shipping and US Navy Destroyers in the Pacific. They are long articles but are well worth a read, providing an insight into the catastrophic sequence of events leading to deaths.…

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.…
