Introducing the most powerful Lamborghini ever: the Veneno LP740-4 (pics from all sides) We have known for quite some time now that Lamborghini was planning to introduce a production model that would be the most powerful supercar that they have ever sold to help celebrate the company’s 50th birthday but thanks to information leaked on the internet last night, we know that this historic car is the Lamborghini Veneno LP740-4. Details are limited on the Veneno but thanks to the bit of information included in the early leaked magazine image – we know the details that matter most to both buyers and dreamers. As expected, the Lamborghini Veneno LP740-4 is powered by the same 6.5L V12 that is found in the current Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 but as the name would denote (for those familiar with Lamborghini naming schemes), the Veneno offers a touch more power. The Veneno’s V12 funnels 740 horsepower to all four wheels via a 7-speed automated manual transmission and a high performance all wheel drive system.
The Longest Photographic Exposures in History - The Latest - itchy i The tremendous popularity of this article with more than half a million (!) clicks in one month inspired me to contact the artist Michael Wesely himself. I felt there were questions by readers which I couldn't answer correctly without talking to Michael.
Take a virtual ride down a mountainside on the world's scariest 'rollercoaster' By Daily Mail Reporter Updated: 09:51 GMT, 24 November 2011 For some people the mere thought of skiing down a mountain is off-putting enough. But this Austrian alpine-coaster offers what is perhaps the most frighteningly fast - and seemingly dangerous - downhill descent there is. The single-pipe ride, which is located in Mieders, usually provides tourists with a slow, open trek down the mountainside. But one hardy adventurer recorded video footage of himself hurtling down the steep incline without applying the brakes.
POV.HD camera review It's time for another new entrant into the increasingly crowded pov camera fray, a high-end selection for current or budding professionals -- or well-heeled amateurs. It's the POV.HD from V.I.O. and, if you hadn't guessed, it shoots footage in high definition. Properly high as it were, up to 1080p30, though it'll happily make stops at 720p30, 720p60, and even a tasty 1080p24 along the way. A $599.95 MSRP makes it a bit of a tough sell for casual action sports enthusiasts, but is this what you semi-pro snowboarders need to catch your next big pow adventures? Read on to find out. See all photos Debunking the 3 Biggest Exercise Myths Loss of More than 2 Percent of Your Body Weight During Exercise Degrades Performance This debate, popular among exercise gurus and professional trainers, centers on how much water weight an athlete can lose without sacrificing performance. Lab tests have suggested that a body-weight loss of more than 2 percent impairs athletic performance. This information has become accepted. But a study of marathon runners in France published late last year found exactly the opposite.
19 of the Most Incredible Photos of Venus Passing In Front of the Sun This Week I'm Rob, the editor of Light Stalking. I try to keep this ship on course. By Admin on in Cool Photos, Featured In case you missed it, the planet Venus passed in front of the sun this week – a very rare occurrence (when you live on earth) and one that won’t be replicated for more than another century. The event meant every astrophotographer worth their salt was out in force. This collection is NASA heavy (they have the best toys for this type of thing!) Father and Son Launch iPhone Into Outer Space This breathtaking video documents Brooklyn-based cinematographer Luke Geissbuhler's quest with his son to launch an iPhone 4 and an HD video camera into space using a weather balloon. The mission was a success, and the footage is absolutely gorgeous. Geussbuhler launched the balloon from Newburgh, New York, and it climbed at a rate of 25 feet per second to 19 miles above the surface of the earth just an hour later. The balloon burst and the package containing the iPhone and the camera fell back to the ground on a parachute.
The Mechanics of the Pull-Up (and Why Women Can Absolutely Do Them) As a former rock climbing instructor, I have seen many contorted struggles to raise a chin over a bar. The pull-up for many is a sort of “test piece” of fitness—an indicator of athletic prowess—that is a cornerstone of a good workout (or a good showing-off). Most either never try a pull-up after they leave high school gym class, or fail, but many succeed, especially women. Long-time rock climber Sarah Brengosz pulls hard. You can do yoga all day, you can run or bike or swim, but a pull-up will still be hard.
NASA captures mind-bogglingly gorgeous solar video High performance access to file storage Video Last Friday the Sun put on a magnificent display, ejecting a massive solar filament that was captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) in all its glory. According to NASA's announcement, the filament – a form of solar prominence – had been hovering in the Sun's atmosphere, or corona, since early August, and erupted into space at 8:36pm GMT on August 31. Experience Human Flight Experience Human Flight from InfinityList on Vimeo. Sometimes you have to slow things down to comprehend how far humans can push themselves. Experience Human Flight is a collaboration between French jump champs the Soul Flyers and several top Australian skydivers put under their charge. At just under two minutes, this video lasts almost twice as long as a typical skydive freefall. Of course, you can make a fall last longer by wearing a wingsuit or jumping from the stratosphere — Half a century later, Capt. Joseph Kittenger still holds the record for highest parachute jump at 102,800 feet.
Video: NYC Band Replaces Stolen Instruments With iPhones I used to manage an indie rock band back in the day, and having our instruments break down or even stolen was definitely a huge concern. With technological progress, and especially the iDevice revolution, it seems like this is not much of a big deal anymore. Indeed, after a New York City band, Atomic Tom, (spotted by 9to5mac) had their instruments stolen, the band realized they could just as well replace them with iPhones.
