I’ve seen plenty of time lapse videos from the International Space Station. None of them were even near the amazing beauty of this one. Play it at full screen and high definition—just the opening Star Wars-like shot will leave you in awe.
It was created by Knate Myers using photographs taken from the International Space Station. He removed the noise, processed some of the shots in Photoshop and compiled the whole thing in Sony Vegas.
If there just would be an electric bike, that would ride comfortably whilst not sacrificing a certain appearance. Look no further, as a bunch of designers and craftsmen teamed up to realize the Faraday Porteur. Not just an ordinary e-bike, but a retro-style commuter crammed with state-of-the-art technology for the modern well-equipped townsmen. What makes this bike pretty special are the hidden lithium-ion batteries in the twin top tubes, the thumb switch toggling the electric tailwind plus an addition boost modus for extra quick roads, and the short recharge time of just 45 minutes. Further notably features are built-in LED lights, an interchangeable cargo rack and the high quality parts among there are Brooks and Avid.
BUY for $3.500

This week Mercedes-Benz has announced the new C63 AMG Performance Studio Edition. Unfortunately exclusive to the Japanese market, the special edition car comes with a Designo matte black exterior with matching 19-inch AMG wheels with an extra red strip around the exterior of the rim.
The interior has of course also been updated and comes with a red and black nappa leather wrap on the dashboard, armrest, center console, door panels and the seats also come with red stitching throughout. The two-tone steering wheel is trimmed in classic designo red and black leather as well.
Of course they also worked on the performance of the already aggressive C63 AMG and added another 30 hp to the output. One of the most interesting features of the car is for sure the special AMG COMAND display which provides performance data, including lap time, engine power output, torque and a G sensor.
The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Performance Studio Edition releases November 2012.
It was just a matter of time untill the Apple catchword “Retina” will finally adorn a MacBook Pro. That being said, Apple has ditched the mass-production TN panel and opts for an IPS panel with a seriously dense resolution, we’re talking 2880 x 1800 pixels at 15-inches of screen estate. Alongside the sharp optics, Apple managed to slice the aluminum unibody down to 0.71-inch thickness and a weight of 4.46 pounds. The hard specs reveals up to 16GB of RAM, NVIDIA Kepler GT 650M graphics card, up to a quad-core 2.7GHz Core i7, 768GB of SSD storage, revised MagSafe, FaceTime HD camera, glass Multi-Touch trackpad, full-size backlit keyboard, dual microphones, enhanced speakers, low-noise fans, 3-stream 802.11n Wi-Fi and a 7 hours of battery life with 30 days standby – and it is already availabel for purchase.
