Celebrating its 75th birthday, Bavarian automaker BMW has come up with the 328 Homage concept, a nod to the car that the brand produced in the late ’30s. Displayed at the Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este, the concept gives off a retro look while keeping up with the best of contemporary manufacturing technologies. The concept makes elaborate use of carbon fiber, aluminum and leather in its construction, and is powered by a 3.0-l V6 engine.

The world’s largest camera is big enough to comfortably hold an airplane. Hell, it used to be an abandoned airplane hangar in Irvine, California before it was converted into a humongous pinhole camera. The camera itself measured 45x160x80 feet, and was made fit for the purpose with 24,000 square feet of plastic, 1,300 gallons of foam filler, 1.52 miles of tape, and 40 cans of spray paint. Image was formed on a film that measured 31 ft 7 in x 111 ft and weighed 1200 pounds. An image was captured using a 6mm hole in the side of the hangar, and exposed to film for 35 minutes. This continues to be the largest photo ever made.

Apparently, a true American ninja wouldn’t waste time with those lame ass plain nunchaku. They’d need beer nunchuks, and presumably swigs between the fight as well. The nunchuks are a collaborative project by Chen Chen and Kai Tsien-Williams.
We doubt this lighter’s been made for someone who’s always ready for some action, but someone’s bound to use the leather wrapped brass knuckles with the lighter one day or the other. It looks good, and keeps you ready for business. Costs $85.
Artist Szoki gives us a look into the posters that (probably) were used by the galactic empire to get people to join its forces. Seeing how Stormtroopers went out by the dozen, we’d guess the empire would need a very strong recruitment side.
