Watch Stuff

This watch is ridiculous, but the craftsmanship and even the way it’s presented is incredible. The way they handled sound is brilliant. I’ve skipped you past the initial thousand-yard-stare imagineering bullshit.

Speaking of watches, this will be mine in July, for my bufday. Huawei Watch in silver. Flippin NYOM.

This has been doing the rounds for ages, I’m more posting it for myself than anything. Ignore the unfortunate title. Destin’s comment is priceless. :)

How To Load Cars Into Containers

There’s a load of videos out there about loading 4+ cars into shipping containers, with some people building frameworks around the cars with timber and other using super-dodgy configs, but this is how I want mine loaded. So Cherman! (Sorry about the potato quality.)

Ford GT Concept

I absolutely love this car — the Audi R8 profile, the Saab Aero X cockpit-style windscreen, the bizarre rear quarters with wonderful flying buttresses, even the engine sounds pretty good, for a V6.

The matching embedded exhausts and tail lights look great, the anthracite alloys with super-thin spokes are gorgeous, the carbon sills on the scissor doors look like something from /r/oddlysatisfying, the mirrors are just wonderful, and the interior looks swish without getting carried away.

They say it’s going into production. Where do I sign up?

(Apologies about the source, I’m not a fan of Shmee but to be fair to him, this was the best overview of the car.)

Empty Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate was closed this weekend for the first time since it opened in 1937. Pedestrians and some buses were still allowed on the bridge, but for the most part it would have looked like this:

Empty Golden Gate Bridge

They closed it to install central barriers, which they can reconfigure with this yoke, a “zipper”. It’s extremely cool, but would they not have painted it dayglo orange or yellow?
