Gymkhana 3.2 – Ken Block + Ford Fiesta

September 25th, 2010 1 comment

No words can describe what you’re about to see, its not your usual Gymkhana either (it never is), this has a slight tilt to it.

Pure skillz and lots of money/sponsors – see the priors on the road!?!

If you like those, you’ll like the other Ken Block videos 😀

Ken Block: Subaru WRX Trax STi Snow Cat

December 7th, 2009 No comments

It combines a two of my favorite things in life: driving a rally car in the snow and snowboarding in the powder in the back country. It’s incredibly fun having the ability to push the high-power Subaru on the slopes and to back country spots that normal cars could never go!

That  my friends, is pure awesomeness. When you’re ready check out Ken going around a snowboard park. More videos on his site to compliment his Gymkhana practice video.

Wolfram Alpha Launches!

May 19th, 2009 No comments

Steven Wolfram of Mathematica fame (and pure genius) has launched Wolfram Alpha, its a ‘computational knowledge engine’ and quite a cool tool too! Taking on the big giants Google and Yahoo, Live etc, this bit of kit allows you to search using natural language.

Let me demonstrate, suppose you want to know who the prime minister of Bulgaria is, it will not only give you the answer but also some background information on the person.

Not only can you ask formal questions, but you can even give it some mathematical problems to solve.

tan(x^2+sin(x))

Try some of the examples on the right hand menu.

Some cool things to try,

Ok I could waste a day on this, so instead I’ll let you do it for me.
