Aston Martin Vantage – Drool-Worthy DesignWhile we're not huge gearheads, whenever we see an Aston Martin Vantage on the streets, we can't help but stop, gawk and admire its graceful lines – it's design done well. The car company recently unveiled the new Vantage, a 503 horsepower super coupe, and like previous versions of the model, this one too flaunts its trademark sleek muscular flanks and broad haunches front and back.
The Quadrapedal Robot – Your New CompanionHave a dog or cat allergy? Boston Dynamics has the pet for you. Meet the "Spot Mini", a quadrapedal robot with a face-style sensor system that responds to human gestures – make it a companion or a guard dog that can ward off unwelcomed guests — particularly as it stops, crouches and stares straight down the camera lens. The company has started rolling out robots in Japan, and it can't be too long before we see them over here. Woof!
For Photography LoversProfessional photographers can work wonders even with minimal resources – Jenna Martin took her camera and her model to Lowe’s: "Instead of searching out the usual beautiful locations around where we live, I had the idea to do just the opposite," she wrote on PetaPixel. "I wanted to go somewhere 'ugly' by all conventional photography standards and then see what we could do with it. Lowe’s seemed like the perfect option."
Martin set herself some rules prior to shooting: work with whatever was already there – no artificial lighting or props; don't rearrange the displays; and stop shooting if anyone else was in the background.
