…Bob Turek’s Stereo is a naughty speaker system?

Bob Turek Stereo

Bob Turek’s speaker system, called “Stereo”, is a bit… unusual.

It’s part of his Object Remix series, and Stereo “forces the music source into the center of attention and creates a radically new user interface”.

Putting a hand built stereo amplifier inside of a fiberglass mannequin with an MP3 player and speakers attached to and protruding from the naughty bits and pieces probably isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if you want a speaker system that’s hard to ignore, I can’t imagine one (or would prefer not to) that’s better than this.

…It’s Things Thursday: Clarkson Supercar Showdown?

I would gladly trade ten years off of the end of my life to be Jeremy Clarkson for a day.


Jeremy Clarkson - Supercar ShowdownBecause the man gets handed the keys to some of the most exclusive cars in the world, and then gets paid to drive them. Hard.

We’re talkin’ tire smoking, opposite locking, pedal to the floor hard; and then some. Top Gear must have to have a separate budget just for the rubber they go through each episode.

Bugatti, Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini; if it costs more than a house, then chances are, Jeremy has been behind the wheel.

Which is why I can’t wait to pick up a copy of his new film, Supercar Showdown. In it, Clarkson road and track tests some of the most expensive supercars currently roaming the roads. Models include the Ferrari 430 Spider and 599 GTB Fiorano, Lamborghini Gallardo and Murcielago Roadsters, Bugatti Veyron, Audi R8, Porsche 911 GT3, Radical SR3, Aston Martin V8 Roadster and Ascari A10.

If a laundry list of the automotive elite isn’t enough to tempt you, then just check out this:

See what I mean?

It’s available November 5.
