Lamborghini Sesto Elemento

October 15, 2010


Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A made its new technology the centerpiece of its Sesto Elemento concept, which was introduced September 30 at the Paris auto show.

The car uses carbon fiber for the passenger compartment, the front and rear-end structures, suspension components, the interior, all exterior panels, and suspension components. Even the tailpipe is made from a carbon and glass-ceramic composite. The process, called “directed carbon-fiber pre-forming,” adds a very small amount of cobalt to the carbon fiber. The company then can robotically shoot a fine stream of carbon fiber into a magnetized mold at a rate of 6 kilograms per minute.
The Sesto Elemento concept car weighs 999kg, about 340kg lighter than the current Gallardo LP Superleggera.

Breffo Spiderpodium

October 15, 2010

Quite a while back, when I saw something similar to this in a shop holding a dummy handphone, in my mind it goes “yet another gimmick”. This show how uncreative I am in the imagination department or maybe I am just not inspired by the look.




When I saw this in Crave, I thought this thing is going to solve a lot of problems! The Spiderpodium consists of eight flexible, rubber-coated wire arms protruding from a rubber center. These arms can be bent and posed in pretty much any direction, orientation, or shape and will hold their position. Aside from your imagination, the Spiderpodium’s other limitation is the weight of the gadget being held, but again it depends on your imaginative mind to think how it is going to hold your stuffs.
Gonno get one or maybe 2!
