Italian Designer Reveals Super Modular Housing Scheme

Simply put, seen below is just one combination of the Sliding Hub system in action. It’s supposed to be the ultimate answer to instant, portable home building for any location. The really incredible part is the designer Gabriel Aramu imprinted a little timeless genius into his Sliding Hub: the combinations are endless, though available references claim only 64 ‘structures’ are possible with the Sliding Hub system.

Diesel Comes Up With Line Of Superhero Underwear

In what amounts to a rather bad idea, Diesel has outed a line of superhero themed boxer briefs. Maybe this is DC Comics’ way at getting back at the Avengers movie. Strange though, because there’s even a Joker themed pair of briefs. Sorry folks, wearing them doesn’t grant superpowers. Besides, superheroes and underwear? Not a bad combination, since even Superman wore his blazing red undies over his trousers. Never really understood why, but it was an enduring fashion statement that has permeated the popular consciousness.

Slow News Day: Rare Interview Footage From Empire Strikes Back (Video)

Guess the title says it all, since tech news has gotten a little élan this weekend, might as well indulge the fanboys out there. A short video clip of rare interviews circa-The Empire Strikes Back has surfaced on a video sharing site. It’s pretty entertaining if you’re a Star Wars fan because it sheds light on the actors. Mark Hamill is such a normal guy, Harrison Ford was a carpenter before he signed up with George Lucas, and Carrie Fisher is pretty hot (when her hair isn’t done weird). Also, C3P0 speaks! The actor, not the droid. Catch the video after the jump!

Coffee From Thin Air: Scanomat Brewer Is Incredible

Okay, so it doesn’t serve coffee out of thin air. Great idea, but that’s just not the case with the Scanomat Top Brewer, which has a faucet-like neck jutting from a counter surface.

It’s one more step closer to the singularity, people!

Modular Street And Snow Scooter Gets Outed

Capable of supporting 140 pound riders, the Street and Snow is currently available at a prominent online retailer. What makes it distinctive are the modular features incorporated unto its design.
