Nike Finally Unveils “MAG” Shoes From Back to the Future

September 10, 2011

Nike has officially introduced the 2011 MAG, and by doing so they’ve brought the past to the present and future by creating a pair of shoes that  actor Michael J. Fox (Marty McFly) wore in the movie Back to the Future 2. This is Nike’s first rechargeable footwear release with a design closely based on the shoes from the filmand they feature an identical silhouette, automatic lacing, and LED panels that glow for 4 hours after a full charge. These high-top shoes will have a limited release with 1,500 pairs set to be auctioned on eBay through nikemag.eBay.com, and the auction will run from September 8th to 18th with 150 pairs available every day. All the proceeds will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation that helps fund Parkinson’s disease cure research. Nike has already pledged to match all donations up to $50 million; currently the bids range from $3,550 to $9,000 for sizes 7-13.

MC HAMMER x SILICON VALLEY

May 13, 2011

So I guess MC Hammer is trying to make up on that 30 mil, quietly?

Over the last couple years years he’s become an investor in Silicon Valley properties. This isn’t just the minor league app here and there, but high value properties, one even started by a major player like Jack Dorsey, Twitter co-founder, called Square which is a mobile payment service provider. Hammer’s an investor and adviser to Bump Technologies, a Mountain View, Calif., developer that makes an app to enable users to share contact information by simply touching their iPhone or Android handsets together (you’ve probably come across it) and Flipboard, an iPad social magazine app.

He helped Pandora founder Tim Westergren prepare for meetings with music executives when the service was still called Savage Beast, gave marketing advice to Salesforce.com and visited YouTube’s offices when it was still located above a pizzeria in San Mateo, Calif.

However, Hammer has recently co-founded DanceJam which got acquired by PureVideo in 2009. MC Hammer has steadily developed a reputation as an entrepreneur, investor and adviser and a savvy early adopter of new technology. He also believes music artists offer more than just a song, according to him they can expand their areas of influence. Just as artists extended their reach into video with MTV in the 80’s, they should explore new media like social gaming, apps and interactive technologies.

Here’s an idea. Bring parachute / bubble pants back into pop fashion and make a killing! I bet if Kanye wore them today, they’d sell like hot cakes.

LP700-4

May 6, 2011

You only walk into Mordor if you’re Frodo Baggins and have the ring in your possession.

The Aventador will eat the LP 670-4 at tea time.

The heavy-breathing V-12 is a brand-new design for the Aventador. The most powerful version of the Murcielago was the 670-4 Super Veloce with 661-horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque. Lamborghini has topped that with the 690 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque in the Aventador. Not only is there more power, but it is more usable at lower RPMs. The big news is that it does these stratospheric numbers while using 20% less fuel, translating into less carbon dioxide emissions.

The clean sheet, aluminium block V-12 features direct injection, variable valve timing, four individual throttle bodies, dry sump lubrication, and an 11.8:1 compression ratio. The big engine has a screaming high 8250 RPM redline accomplished using lightweight internal components and a high bore-to-stroke ratio of 95mm and 76.4mm respectively. Maximum piston speeds have been reduced from almost 24 m/s at 8000 RPM, the Murcielago’s redline, compared to 21 m/s at 8250 RPM at the Aventador’s redline, resulting in fewer frictional losses. It also uses a new dry sump lubrication system that requires less power, provides better oil scavenging under high cornering loads, and decreases the size of the oil pan. The new system also allows the 518-pound engine to sit 2.36 inches lower in the car, reducing the center of gravity height.
