Miniot iPad 2 Real Wood Cover

Miniot iPad 2 Cover

I’ve always been a fan of Apple’s own cases, as they’re usually designed with the minimalism that Apple is famous for, and work as they’re intended to, but the new iPad 2 cover from Miniot is making me reconsider my devotion.

Made from a single piece of real wood, it fits snugly to the edges of the iPad 2, and uses magnets to attach itself, just like Apple’s cover, allowing the Miniot cover to wake and sleep the device as intended. It can also be rolled into a stand, or folded out of the way when it’s time to read, so its good looks don’t get in the way of functionality.

…Levi LaVallee is a world record breaking snowmobile jumper?

Levi LaVallee was planning to set the world record for the world’s longest snowmobile jump during this year’s Red Bull New Year No Limits, but he was injured recently while preparing for the jump, and the event has been canceled.

A. Donate them to the needy?
B. Set up your own art exhibit?
C. Turn them into a really expensive Rube Goldberg Machine that can propel a balloon through the air like magic?

If you answered C, then this video is for you:

(And if you answered A or B, then I apologize for this post.)

…A day in PARIS is enough?

A day in PARIS is an impressive short from Benoit Millot that combines video with CGI animation to tell the story of a robot and his tour through the city.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Porsche 911 GT3 R?

Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid

Porsche’s latest 911 GT3 R is technically a hybrid, but don’t let that fool you into thinking they’re giving up speed and going green. Instead, this track monster features a system that’s similar to the KERS system that was developed for F1 racing, and which is designed to give the car a speed boost during acceleration through the use of small electric motors that assist the main engine.

If the technical terms don’t get you all hot and bothered, then maybe you should just let Porsche explain the car in their own unique way:
