Flywheel Bicycle

Gear  |  Bike
Maxwell von Stein, a 22 year-old Cooper Union graduate, built a bicycle that uses a flywheel to store energy. Instead of braking, he will slow the bicycle down by transferring the kinetic energy from back wheel into the flywheel—which spins between the bars of the frame. When he needs an energy boost, he will be able to send the flywheel energy back to the wheel. Check out the video of Flywheel Bicycle.

Google to Buy Motorola Mobility for $12.5 Billion

Google to Buy Motorola Mobility for $125 Billion
Gear  |  News
In a bid to strengthen its mobile business, Google is buying up Motorola Mobility (the Motorola cellphone business) for $40 a share in cash, or $12.5 billion...by far Google’s largest ever for an acquisition — is 63 percent above the closing price of Motorola Mobility shares on Friday.
“This is an emphatic exclamation point that Google is a mobile company,” said Ben Schachter, an analyst with Macquarie Capital. “This is clearly a defensive deal, they were backed in a corner and they had to protect the Android platform.” [ link ]

Espresso Solo

Espresso Solo
Gear  |  Projects
Espresso Solo is a conceptual project made from a concrete case and metal working parts. I love this style.
"My 'espresso solo' project is a conceptual project. Called Espresso Solo, the conceptual product features metal working parts and a concrete case. The espresso machine makes only espresso: short and long. The design process begun in choosing the material: I choose concrete. I had a vision: concrete in the kitchen, not only as a wall or decorative part, I wanted it to be a desirable consumer product. The contrast between the roughness, massiveness and hardness of the concrete and the fine metal parts, which are dealing with the coffee preparation process, was very challenging and interesting for me.

Leica Lens Ring Ring

Leica Lens Ring Ring
Gear  |  Gadget
When Matthew Harrison got married recently, he was given the awesome gift of a f/.95 Noctilux ring:
"As is tradition, the bride and groom exchanged gifts prior to the wedding. While Matthew purchased Emily the watch that she had always wanted. Emily commissioned a custom ring for Matthew’s shooting hand (as opposed to for his wedding band). This one of a kind band has the depth of field scale from his favorite lens, the .95 Noctilux. On the sides, the ring features both Matthew’s name and The Leica Guy moniker on one side, and the Lens information including name, filter size, and serial number on the other." [the lecia guy]
The ring was commissioned and made by jeweler Gaelen in British Columbia, Canada, from handmade engagement rings.
