Oblivion’s Bubbleship

You’ve already heard about the new movie called Oblivion. There are two trailers out there and today we have a featurette about the Bubbleship. Normally those movie ships and vehicles are made entirely with PCs, stop motion softwares, blue/green rooms and sometimes with scaled models. But this is not the case here. They decided to build an entire ship from scratch just to shoot a few scenes! Sadly the video is not going into details of the build process, design, selection of materials etc. Still it looks nice and shiny. Plus, it is a noteworthy references of what they made and the happiness sourced from the creation process

And in case that you don’t know the movie, above is the first trailer. In theatres: April 19th, 2013

Ferrari F150: LaFerrari

This is the new limited edition special series car from Ferrari! Developed under the codename F150. Just today we have the first pictures and videos of the actual car from the Geneva International Motor Show of 2013. It looks amazing both from the inside and the outside. The official name “LaFerrari” sounds a little bit strange. The Prancing Horse company describing it as “The Most Powerful HyperFerrari” and it truly is!

And this video is something like a teaser from the development process to the placing of the Ferrari badge (something that is happening after the full handmade assembly). They are going to make 499 cars and they are already sold-out according to Fiat’s CEO Sergio Marchionne!

Check as well the official web page (beautifully made with lot of information and interactive content) of the car here. So, what do you thing? Do you like it?

“Technology could transform our life at work, on the go, and at home. This is a snapshot of what the future will look like five to ten years from now. In the years ahead, technology will amplify our senses; help us stay connected to the people we care about and transform the way we live, work and play”.
