…Your watch is too sober?

Happy Hour Watch

The Happy Hour watch not only reminds you when to pop open a cold one, it also helps you get the job done with a bottle opener that’s hidden right in the buckle.

It’s the watch MacGyver, James Bond or Chuck Norris would wear if they didn’t already have much more kick-ass ways of opening bottles.

…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.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Rinspeed sQuba?

Rinspeed sQuba

When I first saw pictures of the Rinspeed sQuba car, I thought it was a clever Photoshop or some sort of concept car art piece.

However, the sQuba is real, and can both drive on land and “fly” underwater.

Dubbed “the world’s first real submersible car”, it features three electric motors, two Seabob jet drives, zero exhaust emissions, LED lighting technology, VDO controls that work underwater, and a fully salt-water resistant interior/exterior.

Drive it into the water and it floats along the surface like a buoy. Then, just crack the door and it sinks into the depths. Hop out though, and the driverless (diverless?) car floats to the surface automatically.

James Bond, eat your heart out.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Exclusive Motor Cars?

Exclusive Motor Cars

Despite what it looks like, this is not an Aston Martin V12 Vanquish.

Instead, it’s a Ford Mustang with one of the best body replica kits I’ve ever seen.

Made by Exclusive Motor Cars, the replication process includes stretching the wheelbase, widening the track, lowering the ride height, adding 34 extra body panels to the outside, custom upholstering the inside, and then adding the small details like the lights, emblems and grills to get things just right.

What you’re left with after all of that is over is a car that is almost indistinguishable from the real thing. (Except for the price.) They even include a Spy Package that adds on grille-mounted rocket launchers and hood-mounted machine guns for extra fun. (Apparently, “Even the original James Bond car from Die Another Day was equipted with Mustang running gear.”)

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Cardboard car?

Cardboard Aston Martin

Despite looking like you could hop in and take it for a spin, this Aston Martin DB5 is actually a model made entirely out of cardboard.

Chris Gilmour handcrafted this cardboard car, and though it won’t take you very far, it is an amazingly detailed piece of work, complete all the way down to the Bond gadgets sticking out of the sides.

Plus, it’s easy to ship.
