There’s an app for that. Rolls-Royce lets you build a Ghost on your iPhone.
Corn and used cooking oil aren’t the only materials suitable for processing into fuels. Amtrak is testing, urm, what was left on the slaughter house floor.
One of the greatest things about Boeing’s development of the 787 is how much of the process is being documented and broadcast to the curious masses. The climatic testing has begun in Florida. It’s danged cold in that hangar. And you need an electric pencil sharpener.
Society and Culture
Boing-Boing provides a review of a nifty book about vending machines. Amazon carries the book. (Some of the sell alongs are distasteful.)
There are few things more grating than a car alarm in the night. This little video of Nasty Canasta just might go a ways to making the next sleepless night a little more bearable. Innovative burlesque and NSFW.

Economy of line can be the most expressive technique for sketching. These three quick studies by Jean-Marie Guivarc’h from the Bidon 2 Litres are fine examples and happily also include two sidecars. If you’d like to see more of his work — mostly automotive look further.
This and the next five pictures were taken in an abandoned building in Lockport. The building and the source of the bikes is IDesd in the comments. The HDR work is nicely restrained.
ooh, look, it’s another week starting…
