Another Ferrari Killer

Well it’s another killer design by no other than Ferrari.
About a week ago I wrote about the Ferrari designing firm new chair design, today I read about this new design concept, that is ready to go, meaning: That we might see this baby on the high way soon.
The concept it self is from the designer genies: Iman Maghsoudi.
He designed it so that once you reach a predetermined speed, the onboard computer will change the car’s
aerodynamic profile, using winglets called canards ahead of the front
wheels to create lift which reduces friction. In most cases, the
resulting vehicle would be called an airplane, but with the Monza,
ground effects come into play to keep it on ground!

The most SCREWED clock yet!

Literally it contains (I think) a lot of screws, however, I just love collecting watches from Tokyoflash and I find it amusing to figure out the time, but this clock (Not by Tokyoflash) will make people wonder around it trying to figure out the time.
The name is: Clock Delay. And I guess that it’s a good name since it will make a great excuse if you’re late to work trying to figure out the time.
But you must have a real good job to be able to buy it at the market price of almost $2000

Yahoo! called it the Segway Killer!

I know what you thinking, this is the second title that contained the word “killer” on this blog in less than one week, but this is true, that’s exactly what Yahoo! called it in their headline.
However I will never call it that, in fact I was laughing on that title 🙂 because I know that the Segway was dead the day it was born!
Unless you are Adam Savage from the hit show MythBusters, or some big Hollywood shot that needs such thing to roam back and forward in your huge storage facilities, I really think that this is not for you.
Toyota said that it’s main target is the elder people in Japan, but I think it will be a long time before I see anyone riding it in the streets in the U.S.
The smallest model has no bars, instead it acts (and look) like a robotic skates, moving you smoothly all over your mall. Who knows maybe it will have a good market after all.
