Racing Sims

Read More

After a post from last week, I was emailed lots of questions about Racing Sims and where to get acquainted. I would suggest watching some YouTube videos to get an idea of what you are in for… From what I understand, it can get very expensive… But from what little experience I have, I can tell you that it is crazy immersive and about as close as you can get to the real thing without risking health.

Anyway, I recommend two channels:

  1. GPLaps. This guy focuses on vintage racing on older platforms that have mods to make the cars handle realistically. This looks less serious and more fun perhaps?
  2. Super GT. Modern GT racing… This guy races with a lot of F1 drivers, but mostly Lando… Super entertaining.

Jaguar C-Type Continuation

Read More

This is rad… So, Jaguar won Le Mans in 1951 with a C-Type, right? As of today, you can still buy a brand new one. Well, at the very least, one restored by the Jag factory people.

Tacray Mini Pen

Read More

Only 3.5″ long and weighs nothing basically… Uses LAMY refills too, so it should write pretty well.

Voigtlander 50mm F1.0 Nokton

Read More

For the very few of you that are camera nerds, this is sort of a big deal. CameraQuest is gonna be releasing the new 50mm Nokton today. Dirt cheap for a 50mm F1.0 with solid reviews ($1,799) and build quality almost that of Leica.

Gato Pocket Bit

Read More

Super simple design – a combination driver bit with a keychain attachment. You aren’t gonna put much torque on anything with this, but I can see where and when this would be handy.

Stilo VR

Read More

Racing Sims are getting ridiculous. Hell, half the F1 grid came up on them and the realism often prepares them as well or better than carting. And now, we add VR? Absolutely crazy realism.

Adding to this, Stilo is getting ready to launch a helmet designed to work with VR goggles.

Pioneer X WESN

Read More

I’m a huge fan of Pioneer. They use materials that others don’t dare to and they do it with a smart eye on design. And while I have yet to try their new pouch line, they look dope as hell. Recently, they launched a collaboration with WESN… Essentially, it’s a Pioneer Global pouch packaged with a titanium micro blade from WESN.

M-19 Multi-bit Screw Driver

Read More

A pretty clever design for something that I don’t think has been perfect just yet – an EDC multi-bit screwdriver. This attempt uses a skeletized frame with magnets… Pretty good.
