…It’s Things Thursday: Photojojo’s Wrap-Around-The-Corner-Frame?

Photojojo Wrap-Around-The-Corner-Frame

Photojojo’s Wrap-Around-The-Corner-Frame is a new way to display your photos that will definitely force you to think outside the box when behind the lens.

By taking your photos into a third dimension, the Wrap-Around-The-Corner-Frame allows you to get creative with what will wrap and how it will add extra depth to your ideas, and you can put photos where photos have never belonged before.

The frame itself holds up to 12 different photos, and is made of espresso stained and lacquered wood for a strong and durable finish that will look good on just about any corner.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: BeFaster Ducati 999S?

BeFaster Ducati 999S

The Ducati 999S is already a rare breed, but if you want to take the rarity of your bike to the limit, then give BeFaster a call and tell them you want the full treatment.

What you’ll end up with is the carbon fiber and titanium beauty you see before you. Weighing in at just 143 kg (315 lbs), the entire body, frame, and even the wheels have been replaced with carbon fiber versions of their former selves, and anything that couldn’t be carbon-ized has been made of titanium.

In addition to the reduction of weight, the bike’s power has also been given a bump, and now sits at 170 hp, giving the bike a 0-100 km time of less than 3 seconds, a 0-200 km time of less than 7 seconds, and a top speed in excess of 300 km/h.

All this power and lightness doesn’t come cheap however, as you’ll need to be willing to fork over $165,000 for the privilege, but if you’re looking for the ultimate motorcycle experience, then look no further than the BeFaster Ducati 999S.

…It’s Things Thursday: Draganflyer X6?

Draganflyer X6

The Draganflyer X6 “is a remotely operated, unmanned, miniature helicopter designed to carry wireless video cameras and still cameras”.

It’s also one of the most bad-add R/C copters ever made.

Draganflyer X6 Specs

Features include a six rotor co-axial configuration that makes the Draganflyer X6 compact, stable, and powerful, a full carbon fiber folding frame that also makes it light and easy to carry, and 11 on-board sensors that make the X6 the easiest copter to fly in its class, including three gyros, three accelerometers, three magnetometers, one barometric pressure sensor, and one GPS receiver.

Loose radio connection?

No problem; the Draganflyer X6 simply lands itself and waits for you to return.

Loose an engine?

Again, no problem. The Draganflyer is able to continue flying, even with one engine entirely out of commission.

With camera options that range from anti-vibration mounts and digital still camera holds to HD video, low light, thermal infrared and micro video cameras, there’s even a payload option to match every need.

James Bond, eat your heart out.

…Bigfoot has been stabilized?

Stabilized Bigfoot

By stabilizing and aligning each frame, you can view Bigfoot like never before.

Zapruder also did something similar for the JFK assassination, though that one’s a bit tougher to handle.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: MAT’s Ferrari 308 GTB?

1977 Ferrari 308 GTB FIA Group 4 Rally Car

When you think of rally racing and rally cars, you probably don’t think of Ferrari’s prancing horse, but Makela Auto Tuning sure does, since they were the creators of this fantastic 1977 Ferrari 308 GTB FIA Group 4 rally car.

The process involved stripping the entire car down to its bare frame and then building it from the ground up using all new parts, and the end result speaks for itself.

Be sure to check out their site for more than 250 pictures that document the entire process and every step along the way.
