This video is for those of you that are unaware of Camel Racing. Filmed in high def from Wadi Rum Jordan, this is an opportunity to catch some some behind the scenes footage of an event that you will most likely never witness in person. Camel racing is a popular sport in India, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Australia, and Mongolia, & these suckers reach speeds of about 40 mph.
It’s truly amazing how far these guys have pushed the envelope when it comes to the human body and the laws of modern physics!
Let me introduce you to one bad-ass truck, the Knight XV (The World’s Most Luxurious Armored Vehicle). Inspired by Military design, bio-fuel powered, and features security appointments that are unrivalled in today’s SUV marketplace.
Recently, Sikorsky tested its X2 coaxial-rotor helicopter and achieved a speed of 260 knots. Thats over 100 knots faster then that of conventional helicopters.
” What an incredible piece of engineering. Since I am forwarding this to several friends who are not engineers or pilots I’ll offer a little background. Conventional helos with a single main rotor have an antitorque tail rotor which uses a lot of energy without providing lift. Forward speed is obtained by adding power and tipping the entire machine forward. I’m sure several web sites will explain the geometry. By using a coaxial dual main rotor system the tail rotor is not required because turns in a hover and minor yaw adjustments in forward flight can be done by adjusting the pitch, therefore torque, on the main rotors differentially. Then comes the item that is pure genius, the prop on the tail. We get speed without dropping the nose and at, I’m guessing now but pretty sure, much reduced main rotor pitch therefore reduced power, higher speed onset of retreating blade stall and many other advantages. I’m jealous.
DC LiFE introduces their new UNI-LITE® technology with the BOOST LC (LiFE Collection) as seen at Agenda. Though the inspiration is obvious, we appreciate the return of more technical styles from the big skate labels – keeps their riders wearing DC “off the board.” The colors are inspired by a “color correction” combo of CMYK. Look for a release in Fall 2011.
Stunning short film, that could easily be confused as an Audi A5 ad. New York based creative studio Charlex presents, ShapeShifter. I’m not exactly sure what the premise of this video is from a marketing standpoint, but the visual stimulation is overwhelming. The design, creativity, production carried out in this sequence are virtually amazing!
As a Star Wars fan I really like the new series of virals from Tom Tom navigation featuring their Star Wars guidance options. Darth Vader was hilarious, Yoda not so much, but it still promises to deliver decent online visibility for the system. Gold Star for the Tom Tom marketing department.
I’m a big fan of the European Rallycross Championship (ERC). I remember seeing it in Ireland many years ago when it was the highlight of the Irish motorsport calendar.
As seen on Rob Drydek’s show, the sidehack is a great way to have some fun and tear up your local neighborhood. Before the show aired many people did not realize how long sidehacks have been around. Now it appears (once again) that history repeats itself, and the sidehack is back in the limelight and ready for the mainstream. “Sometime around 1972, two young men that were already racing bicycles in the first wave of BMX in Southern California took the initiative and developed a BMX bicycle with a sidehack car with the intention to race it. This was John Palfreyman and Doug Takahashi, and they built their first sidehack with the help of John Palfreyman Sr. And so it began…”
