Néit Luggage is a London-based startup centered around the Néit, a smart GPS-enabled piece of hard shell luggage that folds flat for easy storage in small spaces. The design of the Néit is inspired by an armadillo shell, and the GPS capability means owners can track their luggage with the Néit travel app which stores an itinerary, boarding passes, and other relevant travel information in one place.

Davie504, the incredible bassist who performed a montage of 200 of the most iconic bass lines, used a spoken answer from different versions of Google Translate to use as a backing track for a terrific slap bass solo.
Google Translate Beat Box Meets Slap Bass. I used some samples of the old version of Google Translate mixed with some new ones.
The Sherp is an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) with a simple but rugged design that features massive self-inflating tires that make the vehicle capable of going just about anywhere. A demonstration video shows the Sherp rolling through swamps, snow, ice, sand, and even swimming in water.
We would like to present an ATV, based on develops of Aleksei Garagashian (renowned technologist). It will strike you with its super passing ability. Our engineers determined with confidence that this vehicle could withstand as a leader in ATV world markets.
It is a new generation of ATV manufacturing. ATV perfectly swims, every swamp for it is not an obstacle. The ATV perfectly gets out of the water onto the ice. It easily overcomes barriers with a height of 70 cm, whether it is rocks or fallen trees in the forest.
We have been to places which never set a human foot before. Traveled to the most distant corners of Tundra, Siberian Taiga, mountain of Kola Peninsula and swamps of the Yugra.

Prone to fits of mania, narcissism and power failure.
In the new “main trailer” for the chillingly dark comedy High Rise directed by Ben Wheatley and adapted from the 1975 J.G. Ballard novel of the same name, the introverted Dr. Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston) learns how to become a bit more outgoing and neighborly, despite the fact that his neighbors are the type that might cause another to recoil behind his own soundly closed and locked door.
Resigned to the complex social dynamics unfolding around him, Laing bites the bullet and becomes neighbourly. As he struggles to establish his position, Laing’s good manners and sanity disintegrate along with the building. The lights go out and the lifts fail but the party goes on. People are the problem. Booze is the currency. Sex is the panacea.

“RUN BABY RUN” is a short video by online filmmaker Eran Amir that uses various forms of a 3D printed baby to make it appear to run over water and sand on a beach, a main street in a small town, through the avenues of a city, over a bridge and through a market. The entire thing was created on-location in three months. Amir has also shared a making-of video to show how the running effect was captured.
RUN BABY RUN – a 3d printed animation created 100% in camera, on location, with no green-screen or digital trickery involved.
