Maintaining your posture is always important, even more when you are sitting, be it in the office or at home or even when you are out on the greens riding your luxury golf cart. So, make sure your seats are as comfortable as the ones from golf enthusiast’s duo David and Dan Vahala. “On average, you’ll spend four hours playing a round of golf, so we designed our seats to offer exceptional back comfort and also be stylish,” said David Vahala, President, Ultimate Golf Seating. These seats offer cervical support with adjustable headrests. There are three styles to choose from, along with a palette of color selections. The Luxury Bucket and Luxury Bench seats are inspired by luxury car seating. Both feature adjustable headrests, lumbar support and fold-down armrests. The Luxury Bucket style offers a center locking console, while the Luxury Bench style offers a center fold-down armrest, and the Premier Bench Seat is designed for fleet use. All of the seats are made with marine grade vinyl for proven durability, while underneath is a foam made of a superior resiliency polyurethane used in high-end mattresses. The seats include resistance to UV rays and stains. You can choose the color to match the interiors of your golf car. And, even accentuate them with a custom embroidered logo of your favorite club or team. These seats can fit onto Club Car, EZ Go and Yamaha brand golf cars, and can be easily installed in just a few steps. The seats are priced range in from $695 to $1195.
Cars and yachts are undoubtedly the most desirable toys of the rich and the famous. Rich guys love to play host on big boats. And Drive’s designers (a leading company in Marine and Automotive design) seem to have captured this fascination with their innovative “125m 7Cs superyacht” that is inspired from automotive design. This new yacht concept has an air of exclusivity to it with a unique stance. This overtly luxurious cruiser will boast some of the finest specs in this category including a sunken pool toward the front with a retractable cover for every season, a helipad and a rear “surrounded” jacuzzi providing shelter and privacy for the owner among other notable specs. The interiors will feature a unique atrium space with a double curved staircase. An area at the stern was inspired by contemporary glass structures and demonstrates a play on “inside/outside” space. Drive envisages a unique hull with the reverse bow, and has tried to approximate a cruising speed of 20 + knots. This wonderful superyacht is still in concept stages till they find a partner to take it in to production. We hope it does soon. Cheers to Drive folks!

No, that’s no moon.
It’s the Sea-Based X-Band Radar, which is part of the U.S. Defense Department Ballistic Missile Defense System. It’s a weird view, because usually—as you can see in the second image—it propels itself.
The platform—built by the Russians using a Norwegian twin-hulled oil platform design—is 380 feet long and 280 feet tall to the top of the main radar dome. Designed to work under any kind of weather, the 50,000-ton behemoth only moves a maximum of 10 degrees of its horizontal base using passive stabilization.
According to Wikipedia, the SBX “has been moved to offshore Hawaii from its Aleutian Islands base in Alaska as of June 23, 2009. The reason: A potential North Korean missile launch that may hit the sea only 310 miles from US territory.
Yes, fun times ahead for Hawaiians. Maybe we should use one of these on Kim Jong Il’s bunker before we get to some kind of point of no return. Although given their lousy track record, maybe we should just ignore that dumbass. [Wikipedia]
