With gas prices on a consistent incline; Automobile marketing campaigns are in full swing to push the latest hybrid and electric vehicles. Check out this new electric bike motorcycle. For a $44K investment, it all the specs of a normal motorcycle except the huge gas bill. Toted as quiet, clean and efficient, the Sora Electric Motorcycle by Lito Green Motion has 708ft-lbs of torque, top speed of 120mph and a range of 185miles, and such nice extras an LCD touch screen, on-board GPS and the words first electric seat. Not the most esthetically pleasing (I salivate when I see a Ninja) but you can “ride it like a café racer, street fighter or daily driver with a simple touch of a button”. Innovation and versatility at it’s finest.
April 28th was the release date of Porches’ final limited edition GT3 RS based on the Carrera 911 design. The design boasts a minimalist yet sporty interior.

Put your order in now as only 600 unites will be available for purchase in Germany, July 2011

When it starts to look like we moving in the direction of becoming overly consuming, destructive earth dwellers, someone in our realm does something positive that gives us a gleam of hope for generations to come. The House of Marley (Legacy of Bob Marley) has launched a brand of headphones that are made from recycled and environmentally friendly materials. Such materials as bamboo, recycled aluminum, leather, FSC certified wood and HEMP have been used in the making of this line of headphones and earbuds. Everything down to the packaging is made with recycled material and also includes advice on how to dispose of the packaging in such a way to reduce the lasting effects on the environment. Pieces range from $30 – $300, and part proceeds go towards the 1Love Foundation. There is hope for us yet.
The on-going challenge put forth to Volkswagen engineers is to come up with the most fuel efficient car; essentially answering the question “Just how much could the energy consumption of cars be reduced if all the stops were pulled out for efficiency?” After several unsuccessful attempts of comparable fuel efficiency and practicality, they finally developed a bullet shaped diesel-electric plug in hybrid, the XL1 Concept Car. This concept car is a result of “what’s possible when you let your engineers run wild”. If you would like to get a glimpse of this car and just so happened to be in the Middle East, it will be reveled this week at the Qatar Motor Show. For all you car enthusiasts out there, here are some of the impressive features:
- The diesel-electric combo features a 2-cylinder TDI engine with a displacement of just 0.8 liters.
- The engine is good for 48 horsepower and 88 pound-feet of torque.
- Can go 35 kilometers (21 miles) in electricity alone.
- Will do zero to 60 in 11.9 seconds.
- Fuel economy is pegged at 0.9 liters per 100 kilometers
- Carbon-fiber anti-roll bars, ceramic brake rotors and magnesium wheels.
If those features have you salivating and gave you a warm fussy feeling in unmentionable areas, I’m sorry to report that it seems unlikely we’ll see anything resembling this car anytime soon given the exotic (and expensive) materials and outlandish styling. But you can always dream.
The new Zoom Q3HD Handy Video Recorder is a great buy for those looking for a pocket size video recorder. The Q3HD not only offers Zoom’s X-Y stereo audio recording capabilities (at up to 24 bits/96KHz) but can capture 1080p high-definition video at 30 frames per second—and 720p video at either 30 or 60 frames per second. Three different lighting settings (concert, night, and automatic) allows’ you to capture footage with stunning clarity and resolution. Additionally you have the choice of manually adjusting your audio settings to accommodate various environments or set it automatically to adjust. Great for shooting concerts, interviews, weddings or anything else you would use your handy cam for. I wonder if it’s too late to add to the Christmas Wish list?
Not feeling like enough of an individual owning the same ultrathin Apple laptop as everyone else? We feel your pain, you need something more in your status symbol hardware. This is where Colorware enters, asking for (at least) $1,850 in exchange for a MacBook Air — made in 2010, exactly to your chromatic specifications. Come on, we can mock and we can decry the price, but if this were ever within the disposable income portion of your budget, wouldn’t you jump at the opportunity? Alas, there’s no option for repainting an Air if you’ve already bought one, so whether you want the 11.6-inch or 13-inch version, you’ll have to buy it directly from Colorware.
