[ More ] Suzuki GSX 1100 SD Katana Like many things in the 80s, the Katana is just plain weird-looking by today's standards. But it has something of a cult following, because—let's face it—it's quick, outrageous and kinda cool. And it's finally old enough to be considered a true classic, rather than just a whacky, outdated design. This Katana belongs to Team Classic Suzuki—a special factory race team, supported by Suzuki Japan themselves. It's downright delicious, dripping with go-fast parts and a stellar Suzuki blue livery. But it's also a proper race bike, built to take on the Endurance Legends event at Donington Park in just a couple of weeks. Highlights include K-Tech suspension, Dymag wheels and a custom swingarm from Sweet Fabrications. Then there's the engine—it's been bored to 1170cc, with higher lift cams and stainless steel valves. Team Classic Suzuki rebuilt it using genuine Zuki parts from the marque's vintage parts programme—good news for anyone wanting to revive their old Katana.

Get the most from your kit lens Build and handling Aluminum alloy and polycarbonate construction Design little changed from previous models Weighs 532g Like the Rebel T6i, the T7i features a aluminum alloy and polycarbonate construction, but has managed to shave about 20g from the weight of the camera, which tips the scales at 532g with a battery and card. However, while we dont doubt that the quality of the construction of this camera is very good, the predominantly matt plastic exterior finish of the camera just doesnt feel that nice to the touch. If were being harsh, it feels quite cheap, especially when compared to mirrorless rivals like the Panasonic Lumix G80/G85 and Fujifilm X-T20 .

With only five months to go until the expected big reveal, it's fair to say the 2017 iPhone rumor mill is very much up and running - and this weekend we've got another image leak that gives us clues about the potential design for the iPhone 8. The shots in these photos are of a dummy device mocked up based on Apple's designs for their upcoming phone, courtesy of Twitter user Benjamin Geskin and reported by 9to5Mac . It's not clear how recent this design is but it fits with what we've seen so far . Specifically, we're talking about a dual lens camera with one lens above the other (supposedly for some advanced 3D or augmented reality effects) and a distinct lack of bezels around the front of the device. The power button also seems to be longer. There's no slot on this design for a Touch ID sensor around the back of the device - which has been rumored, with the suggestion being Apple is struggling to get the necessary tech embedded in an all-glass, bezel-free front .

" (This raises the question of how exactly a sculpture can become iconic before it’s made.) Bouquet of Tulips is a gigantic forearm and hand (Koons says it "references [sic] the hand of the Statue of Liberty holding the torch") clutching a bunch of pastel green, pink, yellow, blue and white balloon tulips—not exactly the sort of thing that springs to mind when one thinks about the Bataclan killings. Ambassador Hartley told National Public Radio that Koons agreed to donate the design, but the cost for the making and installing of the sculpture would have to be found elsewhere. ( Bouquet of Tulips is not even an original design; rather it’s a modified copy of a $33 million Koons piece that Steve Wynn bought in 2012 that now resides in his casino in Macau.) The choice of Jeff Koons is not surprising. He’s the fashionable darling of elite critics and art dealers who have promoted his work for years, and he has made a fortune from it.

Mike Rutherford thinks JLR are leading the way after witnessing the Jaguar F-Pace win the 2017 World Car of the Year award 2017-04-23 15:00 New York, April 2017: If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. And Jaguar just did. Big time. Half a century after England lifted the World Cup at a shabby Wembley Stadium, an English car company has just rocked the global motor industry by winning the World Car of the Year trophy at a glitzy ceremony in Manhattan. True, the Midlands-based Jaguar team did feature several top non-English players, including Director of Design Ian Callum (Scotland) and CEO Dr Ralph Speth (Germany). And to be fair, it’s these two who probably did more than anyone to claim England’s (or should that be Britain’s?) first outright World Car of the Year victory. • 'Let’s celebrate our great car-making nation' This is history in the making.

What a time to be planning room layouts! Lucky for us, we now have access to a treasure trove of user-friendly apps to help us create floor plans and virtually design our rooms—taking a lot of the guesswork out of everything from gauging the right-sized furniture for our space, to assessing how a paint color will look, to putting entire rooms together in virtual reality before we take the plunge IRL.

For instance, a typical wind turbine involves a pinwheel shape, but a new design from Tyer Wind has now implemented hummingbird winds. The new turbine's design uses wings as opposed to traditional rotating blades to turn energy from wind into green electricity thanks to 3-D Aouinian Kinematics. A Leaf-Inspired Bridge A little leaf may not seem like the symbol of strength, but if you take into consideration how many leaves stand their ground whilst being whipped around by weather's windy, rainy, and otherwise intense conditions, it begins to make a little more sense that a bridge would take them into consideration. Wanda Lewis of University of Warwick’s School of Engineering used the process of form-finding to create a bridge design that requires little to no maintenance or repairs. For 25 years, she has been studying how forms of nature, like a leaf on a tree, are able to withstand modern stressors like traffic and extreme weather conditions.

Enlarge (credit: WarioWare DiY) The following is an excerpt from the essay collection Offworld , which focuses on gaming and culture. Edited by Leigh Alexander and Laura Hudson, it's available from indie game publisher Campo Santo . Check it out if you'd like some fresh perspectives on gameplay and design. In 2012, I wrote a book called Rise of the Videogame Zinesters , and in the back I listed all the accessible, no-programming-required game-making tools I could. Recently, I’ve been surveying the current landscape of similar tools. Spoiler: They all suck now. Many of the tools I suggested as possible options for a budding game creator with no programming experienceGame Maker, Construct, Stencyl—have shifted towards marketing themselves as professional, commercial game-making tools for Capital I Indie, Capital D Developers. In today’s market, that means accommodating touch screens and mobile games, and it also means filling every tool with so many options that I get overwhelmed and feel lost—and I’ve been making games for ten years.

The Sportage Mk3 was a world away from the ugly Mk2, but the car didnt sacrifice practicality. It fitted the crossover template perfectly. KX-badged 4WD models are fine, yet we’d recommend the front-drive 1.7 CRDi, as it has lower running costs and is nearly as capable as the 2.0-litre diesel.

It echoed with memories. A parade of champions and replica stock cars from yesteryear was a highlight of the final meeting; immaculate reminders of how much sweat and toil amateur racers have put into their passion through the decades. The final meeting ended as Wimbledon’s first oval event had begun: with a race for Superstox cars. The last winner was Martyn Coles – or ‘511’ in a sport where a racer’s car number has almost as much equity as his or her name. The fight isnt quite over for Gray. A request to afford Grade I listed status to the venue is currently being reviewed by Historic England and, until that has been decided upon, redevelopment cannot proceed. Gray hopes the officials reviewing the application will look beyond the crumbling facade and see its true value to generations of racers and fans: “It is an important asset, both historically and culturally, especially because of its design.
