With over 8500 skydives, several awards won for both freestyle and freefly skydiving, Roberta Mancino is, without doubt the world’s hottest daredevil. And it doesn’t stop there – Roberta is also a base jumper, wingsuit flyer and a model, having covered magazines like Vogue, Vanity Fair, Maxim and now HisPotion. Did I mention she’s the first lady to have skydived in the nude? Now that I have your attention, check out the interview and the photo gallery below.
The “Bridal Veil” fall is not exactly your typical art project, and it most certainly isn’t a common sight one would come across in nature (unfortunately, we might add). This water curtain is in fact an art installation built for the Horizons “Art Nature” festival which is an annual event that takes place in France and has featured some amazing pieces over the years. The curtain is meant to be a horizontal continuation of the natural fall from which it gathers its water, … continue reading
This is Adobe’s first, rather shy attempt at diving into the hardware world, by bringing forward a sleek tool, mainly addressed to designers and artists. The Ink & Slide set includes a creative cloud pen and a digital ruler, which are said to provide a smooth experience, due to the fine, pressure-sensitive tip and magnetic parts that simulate a human’s capacitive touch.

Don’t tell anyone, but I can guarantee you that rich people never burn … continue reading
Like my grand father used to tell me : the best things in life are (maintenance) free, remember that! Well, that’s what Dave Weiner had in mind with his new concept : maintenance free bicycles that make cycling easy. I don’t know what he’s talking about, my biggest problem when cycling is that I have to actually move. I am not worried about my bicycle failing on me, never happened before but I am digressing. Dave’s maintenance free bicycles are supposedly built using … continue reading

Enter the mega hammock from HummingBird Hammocks, a dream come true for all the lazy bastards out there. (or XXL sized ones). Theoretically, this huge hammock is large enough to accommodate three persons (or two Americans). Available in 4 colors and made of rip-stop stuff (nylon if … continue reading
