2000HP Nissan GT-R

Sure, the Bugatti Veyron may have over 1000-horsepower, but T1 Race Development's Nissan GT-R has more than twice that. You ready that right, their "record-breaking machine," delivers a monstrous output of 2,276-horsepower at 9,332RPM and 1,335 lb-ft of torque at 7,484RPM to the wheels. All of this power is good for a 7.6-second @ 187mph quarter mile time and a standing 0-186mph in 9.6-seconds on street tires. Continue reading for two more videos and additional information.

Solu is World’s Smallest General Purpose Computer, Has Built-in Touchscreen Display

Solu Computer

Entrepreneur Kristoffer Lawson says computers haven't changed much in 20 years because it's still a box and screen. However, there still wasn't something portable, more powerful than a tablet, and designed to be plugged into any desktop screen with a new kind of operating system that connects more fluidly to your contacts. Introducing Solu. This four-inch wide wooden block not only packs an edge-to-edge touchscreen display, but inside, there's a powerful 2.3GHz processor. You can used it as is, or pair the device with a keyboard and 4K display - the Solu acts as an input device instead of a mouse when paired in this manner.

Artist Jessica Hische Creates Amazing Typographic Artworks

1

Many typographers fit the designer mold “to a t”, after all it does take a critical eye to weigh over such small detail so thoroughly. Jessica Hische is one young typographer who is breaking that mold and as the field sees a new renaissance, she’s one designer you should keep your “I’s” on.

The field of typography is one design niche that is currently undergoing a groundswell of appreciation. One undisputed leader pushing this focus on type is an unassuming young woman from “Nowheresville, Pennsylvania” named Jessica Hische. Besides her fundamental understanding of the field, she also brings her own quirkiness, originality, and sense of humor to her work. The result is an original approach to a timeless challenge – Giving words the ability to communicate both thoughts and emotions.

Besides working with an amazing array of clients who appreciate her work, she’s also picked up a few industry awards worth noting. Forbes has listed her twice as a “30 under 30” in Art and Design, ADC has titled her a “Young Gun”, STEP Magazine has designated her as one of “25 Emerging Artists”, and she also serves on the Type Directors Club Board of Directors. In my opinion one of the most engaging aspects of Jessica’s work is that she seems to have found her passion at such a young age.

You‘ve probably seen her work on recent AmEx commercials, MailChimp branding, or Wes Anderson movies.
