The Hauler

The Hauler

The Hauler
Gear  |  Bike
The Hauler($2660+) is an all-terrain, mountain-bike style recumbent tricycle, which sports its own solar panel powering an onboard motor that provides electric assist riding. The Hauler can carry a load of up to 300 pounds(plus the safety of a 50 degree rollover angle), can hit speeds in excess of 20mph. (Note: the Hauler blog)
"The Hauler's drive system utilizes 26” drive wheels, a high degree rollover angle, massive clearance, heavy-duty suspension and agile steering, allowing this beast to move loads over the harshest terrain. Substitute street tires for the gnarly knobbies, and the Hauler's powerful motor, dual drive wheels and excellent sight lines will power you through any urban adventure.
Even while heavily loaded the Hauler is easy to pedal and can climb up and over hills and obstacles under human power alone, while adding a little juice obtained from the solar panel or a power socket will allow riders to rally up hills and cruise at speeds up to 20 mph with ease. "

Bicycle Rush

Gear  |  Bike
Morning rush hour in the 4th largest city in the Netherlands. Streets look like this when 33% of ALL trips are made by bicycle!
This is an ordinary Wednesday morning in April 2010 at around 8.30 am. Original time was 8 minutes that were compressed into 2 minutes, so everything is 4 times faster than in reality. The sound is original.
For those who frown upon the total absence of bike helmets in this video, consider these findings from a US study:
"Cycling in the Netherlands is much safer than in the USA. The Netherlands has the lowest non-fatal injury rate as well as the lowest fatality rate, while the USA has the highest non-fatal injury rate as well as the highest fatality rate. Indeed, the non-fatal injury rate for the USA is about 30 times higher than for the Netherlands.

And I love cycling!

Pre-Handshake Handshake Device by Dominic Wilcox.
"Many people in the world seem to be at war with each other. We see families split through disagreements, gang warfare on the streets, politicians arguing, whole civilisations and religions constantly battling. This device aims to help those who are at odds with each other make a first move toward reconciliation.
A traditional handshake can sometimes be just too big a step for those entrenched in their dislike of the other. No matter how important it is for two people to reconcile their differences they simply can’t get over their pride and lower themselves to the symbolism of a handshake with the other party. "

The iPhone Killer is an hammer for smashing up iPhones, features a 25mm laser cut steel and and an axe handle. Designed by Ronen Kadushin.
"“Pitch” (in a Steve Jobs style product announcement): Whenever a new hand held device, or new exciting smartphone hits the market, a questions roars through the internets, tech blogs and news: Is this the iPhone killer? The answer is always...well...not quite, not yet....
So I was thinking, maybe these guys who make these devices are not looking at the right place for that iPhone killer. Why don’t I scratch that dream product itch, and transform this buzzword into a real product
that it’s soul purpose is to do what it claims to be.....
I’d like to introduce you to the iPhonekiller....It’s amazing...
It is an open design, you can download it from my website, produce and use it. It is 1.6 Kg , 25mm ( 3.5 lbs, 1 inch) of precision laser cut steel, with a fantastic 36 cm wood ax handle. You can just feel the awesome power of it when you hold it in your hand..It’s amazing.......
The iPhonekiller is a statement about current tech products and personalities status , worshiped by the media and public, along with my possibilities to react and criticize that
in a humorous way, with an Open Design."

Iceland, Eyjafjallajokull erupting - May 1st and 2nd, 2010

Gear  |  Video
Photographer Sean Stiegemeier spend 4 days at the fly-over footage he took of Eyjafjallajökull erupting, and he turned it into a breathtaking time-lapse video.
"So I saw all of these mediocre pictures of that volcano in Iceland nobody can pronounce the name of, so I figured I should go and do better. But the flights to get over took forever as expected (somewhat). 4 days after leaving I finally made it, but the weather was terrible for another 4. Just before leaving it got pretty good for about a day and a half and this is what I managed to get.
Wish I had more time. I missed all the cool Lightning and the Lava of the first eruption. But I figure this will just be a trial run for another day.
I am of course accepting sponsors to send me back there for more please...!! haha

Physical Knob for your iPhone

Gear  |  Apple
Physical Touchscreen Knobs by dsLabs for your iPhone or iPad.
"Here’s another quick hack to add more physicality to touch screen displays. Using a small to medium sized knob, you can modify it (or even use it by itself) to behave as a rotary input.
Similar to the soft stylus, the trick is finding a way to create a conductive path from your hand to the screen. We started by using copper tape, conductive fabrics (see the soft stylus) and wires to simulate two touch points on opposite sides of the knob. It takes some careful tuning to get the touch points spaced correctly and sized such that the screen reads them as a touch, but it does work with a little patience.
Alternatively, with a small knob, it’s natural to grab it such that your fingers actually touch the screen making it nothing more than a physical prop to provide some tactile feedback. It works great and doesn’t require much in terms of materials or time; just grab a small object and give it a try!"
