Q-Yachts Designed a Completely Silent Electric Yacht

Europe’s Q-Yachts pursues avant-garde boat design, with a contemporary design bent. The company’s latest creation is the Q30, a revolutionary yacht that utilizes a completely silent propulsion system and zero-emission electric motor. Its clean white design ensures that the Q30 is as easy on the eyes as it is the ears, with sleek lines, a hydro-dynamically-optimized hull (for producing minimal wake) and surprisingly spacious below-deck cabin. Touch screens grant the helmsman complete control over the boat and access to a digital map, while the beach deck towards the rear offers a variety of functions and storage space. Though the cabin is minimal, the clever use of space makes for an impressively-expansive lounge area, complete with mirror, air conditioning and sink.

Lean more about the Q30 on Q-Yachts’s website and check it out in action below.

The Rockstar. Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, he started his musical career while still attending Brentwood High School; the front man and primary songwriter of a band which would later become the award-winning, chart-topping legends: Maroon 5.

Unafraid to try something new, whether it’s bleached blonde hair with dark roots or jet black all-over, and with tattoos pretty much everywhere, his natural good looks convey an attitude that’s cool yet uncontrived.

Beijing Bridge Inspired By Olympic Rings

Ahead of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, architecture studio Penda has designed a new bridge connecting Beijing and neighboring city Zhangjiakou where some of the outdoor Olympic games are slated to take place. Inspired by the five Olympic rings, the structure consists of a series of overlapping arcs made from tubular stainless-steel struts. The shape also pays homage to the nearby mountains, which led to the name San Shan Bridge (translated as Three Mountains Bridge). The 452-meter bridge adds an inviting context toward the mountainous scenery of Zhangjiakou, as envisioned by architects Chris Precht and Dayong Sun. The helix construction provides structural support similar to a roller coaster, while using five times less steel than a regular box-girder frame. Finally, a row of hedges and trees create divisions on the deck separating pedestrians and cyclists from cars. If the project is approved, it will spearhead a system of upgrades for Beijing’s preparation of the Winter Olympics.


Volvo S90 Excellence Interior Concept

First previewed at last year’s Shanghai Auto Show, Volvo has provided an update on its executive-class Lounge Console concept by elevating it into a “sculpture.” As a visualization of how the concept would look inside the marque’s S90 Excellence sedan, the concept entirely removes the front passenger seat to make way for a console that incorporates an iPad entertainment unit and shoe storage, as well as functioning as a heated foot rest. Meanwhile, the rear center arm rest has a foldout table and wireless keyboard, a champagne cooler, and space for two crystal chalices from luxury glassmaker Orrefors. Offering configurations for work, play and rest, the Lounge Console will no doubt provide that extra bit of incentive for executives to stay on the road.

The Ansty Plum House

Let’s get one thing out of the way right off the bat: no, this house isn’t called the “Antsy Plum House,” as cute as that may sound. Rather, the house is located in and named after the idyllic village and civil parish of Ansty, England.

The house itself was originally built in the ’60s on a steep, sylvan slope overlooking a collection of 12th century buildings. The home was originally built for Danish-British civil engineer Ove Arup and included a separate studio for the homeowner to work in. Over the years, water damage, decay and disrepair ate away at the house.

The architects at Coppin Dockray, however, saved the day and retrofitted the entire original structure, repairing and retouching the home to preserve it. The renovations included an overhaul of the building’s insulation, which resulted in an 80% reduction in carbon emissions and eventually landed the architects a shortlisting for an AJ Retrofit Award in 2015 and the award for ‘Best Renovation’ in the 2015 Telegraph Homebuilding & Renovating Awards.

BMW Looks to the Future With Its Vision Next 100 Concept

This year marks the 100-year anniversary of The Ultimate Driving Machine and, to celebrate, BMW has unveiled its most futuristic concept to date. Dubbed the Vision Next 100, the car follows the likes of January’s i8 concepts and envisions what the BMW of 2116 may look like. The result? A low-sitting, fully electric sedan that boasts the likes of four butterfly doors (each of which opens via proximity sensors), “flexible skin”-covered wheels, and the ability to drive itself. The car even boasts a driver-centric Boost mode whereby the driver takes control of the wheel as “Alive Geometry” presents three-dimensional warning messages or even shows the optimum line and speed the driver should take on the road. If autonomous Ease mode is more your style, however, you can kick back as the steering wheel becomes flush with the dash, the seats recline to a more comfy limo-like ride and the car itself points out surrounding scenery and passing landmarks. The Vision Next 100 also employs a so-called Companion personal assistant that monitors both the driver and passengers, learns their habits and adapts to their needs over time — it can even interact with nearby pedestrians.

For more on the German automotive giant’s vision of century ahead, venture on over to BMW’s dedicated Next 100 website.

Small Summer Cabin in Norway

Norwegian studio Lund Hagem has designed a beautiful cabin nestled between two large boulders. The boulders create a natural formation making a protected area, of which the building is accessible from a small path cutting through a heavily vegetated area. The design of the cabin itself was also intended to extend its natural surroundings, with a unique precast roof that juts out from the side of the rock and angles down to meet the ground. This roof also doubles as a staircase that leads to the deck, while the interior and exterior are seamlessly integrated. Check out more sleek and innovative designs at Lund Hagem’s site.

Expect the car to compete in the likes of the Blancpain Endurance Series and the Blancpain Sprint Series after making its public debut in Geneva come March 1.

Ducati Unveils the Monster 1200 R

Celebrated Italian bike manufacturer Ducati took to IAA in Frankfurt this week to unveil the most powerful version of its most popular naked bike: an “R” version of the Monster 1200. Utilizing the 1198cc Testastretta DS R (the latest take on Ducati’s classic V-twin), the new bike offers increased power and speed over its predecessor — improving on the 1200 S’s specs with 117.7kW of power at 9,250 rpm while torque tops out at 131 Nm at 7,750 rpm — thanks largely to a two-into-one-into-two exhaust of 58 mm pipes. Other improvements over the S include the likes of a wet clutch with slipper functionality, an adjustable Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires — all of which have been borrowed from Ducati’s top-of-the-line 1299 Panigale.
