Indoor Cycling… Championships?

9:02 am | writes:

Before today I had no idea that there was such a thing as indoor cycling; let alone indoor cycling competitions. This video proves their existence and took me from “oh, they’ve turned a perfectly good bicycle into a unicycle” to something more profound. Still, I’m left wondering what these people do with their social lives; are their friends bored of hearing about how this is even more difficult than it looks? I’ll probably never know, but now you can watch & wonder too…

By the way, if you’re not completely impressed by this, you better start reevaluating your standards.

Google Street Traffic

12:20 pm | writes:

This will only be helpful for those that live in major cities, but Google Maps now shows traffic levels for major “side streets” (instead of just freeways/highways).

Now I’ll be able to confirm that it will take me 2 hours to drive 5 miles. Awesome.

Vintage Braun Design

Oh, Braun, why did you have to switch to making simple shavers & toothbrushes? You had the “Apple Minimalism” thing down before Apple was even around.

Here’s a gallery of some staggeringly fantastic vintage Braun designs.
