For just over 80 grand you can get 403hp @ 6500rpm and 398lb-ft torque @ 3500rpm. And just 2.0-liters. Sickness. This thing is pretty.

To achieve the incredible 403bhp from just 2.0-litres Mitsubishi has had to significantly revise the FQ-400’s advanced powerplant. Motorsport specification high-flow fuel injectors are fitted to the aluminium cylinder head and a new hybrid turbocharger is also fitted.

I’m losing my shit over here. Megaman 2.5 d takes the classic megaman gameplay and mixes it with 3d elements. This is crazyness.

Created by Peter Sjostrand, a game modder from Sweden. The buzz over this thing on the internets is already insane and there is no public demo yet. Here’s some gameplay.

There is just something sexy about this bench.


Moodwall / Studio Klink and Urban Alliance

by | May 28, 2009 | In design Comments Off on Moodwall / Studio Klink and Urban Alliance

This is pretty sweet.

Media architecture collective Urban Alliance has recently finished the Moodwall: a 24 meter long interactive light installation in Amsterdam.

The Moodwall is situated in a pedestrian tunnel and interacts with people passing by, improving the atmosphere in the tunnel and making people happy and feel less unsafe.

The interactive urban wallpaper is built out of about 2500 leds behind a ribbed semi-transparent wall. The curves in the wall make it less suitable for grafitti and improve the visibility of the content for the side.

The resolution is horizontally stretched so the images of the screen are better for the side so people are stimulated to watch the screen from outside the tunnel. This prevents the tunnel to become a hang-out spot.

Viral Video Hoax, or Proof of Impending Cyber Apocalypse?

The reaction to this video reminds me of when Boston took the Mooninites too seriously.

“Scary talk of intruders cracking SCADA systems to cause power outages and other mayhem has reached a fever pitch over the last year, even as confirmed incidents hover around 1999 levels — i.e., roughly zero. That might make this November 2008 clip an important piece of evidence if it weren’t a complete hoax.”

from TREAL:


Whenever a girl ends a text message with the above emoticon, my automatic interpretation is, “she wants to suck my (motherfucking) dick (the EP).” Then, if after some thought I decide that she doesn’t really want to suck my dick–or, alternately, that perhaps she would like to keep me lingering somewhere in her queue lest some rainy day she suddenly decides that the briny aroma of my cock and not that of some other, presently seemingly more suitable cock would be just the ticket–my reinterpretation is, “why is this bitch trying to text-message tease me.”

I don’t know much about emoticons. Is the winky-face supposed to mean some other shit?
