Whether you attribute it to ongoing race success or to better bikes and kit, the roads are seething with cyclists.

High-viz jackets and flashing lights &ndash; you&rsquo;re fighting a losing battle if the driver is psychologically switched off to your existence.</p> <p><strong>But this <em>is</em> a light, so how does it help? </strong><br />Because accelerometer sensors inside the Lumicycle Insight recognise when you have hit the brakes and light up the rear light, just like brake lights on motorbikes and cars and everything else on the road. The driver sees a new thing - sees a light where once there was none - and acts. Everyone lives to see another day and there are no irksome insurance claims.

Patent-pending tech, too, so you know they&rsquo;re serious.</p> <p><strong>And what about at nighttime?

The battery can last for between 10 and 24 hours depending on the lighting mode, and is rechargeable by USB, 12v car adaptor or one of the lithium-ion battery packs that Lumicycle uses for its super-powerful off-road front lights.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Lumicycle Insight" alt="Lumicycle Insight" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Lumicycle%202.jpg?1413698172" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>What will this high-tech marvel cost me?</strong><br />It&rsquo;s &pound;80 (RM425), direct from <a href="http://www.lumicycle.com/" target="_blank">Lumicycle</a> in Hampshire, which is a lot for a rear light.

Instead, manufacturers are busy looking at ways to reduce harmful emissions and improve fuel economy while retaining the sort of performance figures that make schoolboys giddy with excitement.</p> <p><strong>So what is underneath the bonnet then?</strong>&nbsp;<br />The Asterion packs the same 607bhp 5.2-litre V10 engine as the Huracan but also incorporates three powerful electric motors for an added performance boost. The total output of all drivetrains is a staggering 907bhp&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;but even more surprising is the fact the Asterion can mooch around town on electricity alone for around 30 miles or so. Lamborghini bigwigs also claim the new car can achieve 282mpg when both engine and electric motors are called upon, which is crazy talk.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Hang on, it&#39;s more economical than a family hatchback and as fast as a Ferrari... what&#39;s the catch? </strong><br />That&#39;s right, it can hit 185mph and rocket to 62mph from a complete standstill in just over three seconds. The catch is that the 282mpg figure probably isn&#39;t achievable in the real world. As soon as the batteries run out of juice, you&#39;re essentially wrangling a 5.2-litre V10, which is thirsty whichever way you look at it. Secondly, it&#39;s not destined for production, which means it will cost an absolute fortune should you desperately want one.</p> <p><strong>It doesn&#39;t look anywhere near as menacing as recent Lambo concepts... </strong><br />Designers have deliberately taken a &#39;softer&#39; approach with this one because Lamborghini wanted to create a sophisticated cruiser rather than an insane track-day demon. The seats are cosseting and set higher in the cabin for a better view of the road, the ride is set-up for comfort and there&#39;s even a multitude of handy gadgetry inside.

There&#39;s a stylish TFT display behind the steering wheel that presents a plethora of pin-sharp driving information and there is even a large tablet device in the centre console that controls most of the car&#39;s functions. This tablet can also be removed and used to check things like climate and battery charge status remotely. We assume it can also be used to browse the web, play music and do all manner of tablet-y things outside of the car. Finally, the steering wheel features a button that toggles between three driving modes: &quot;Zero&quot; for full electric, &quot;Ibrido&quot; or hybrid, and &quot;Termico&quot; or thermal for full-fat power.</p> <p><strong>What on earth does Asterion mean anyway? </strong><br />The car is actually called the Lamborghini LPI-910-4 Asterion, to give it its full designation. But in short, Lambo likes to name its cars after bulls and - without giving you a lecture in Greek mythology - Asterion was a &#39;ruler of the stars&#39; who had to assume the form of a half-man, half-bull Minotaur thing to accomplish his life goals. We quite like the idea that the Asterion&#39;s petrol-burning components are bovine while its fancy electric bits are human. But there&#39;s every chance that Lamborghini didn&#39;t think of it like that. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/volkswagen/ducati-engined-vw-xl1-goes-frugal-fiery-57-seconds/news" target="_blank">This Ducati-engined VW goes from frugal to fiery in 5.7secs&nbsp;</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1252" height="900" title="Lamborghini Asterion" alt="Lamborghini Asterion" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Lamborghini-Asterion_LPI910-4_Concept_2014_1600x1200_wallpaper_09.jpg?1412993797" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1256" height="900" title="Lamborghini Asterion" alt="Lamborghini Asterion" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Lamborghini-Asterion_LPI910-4_Concept_2014_1600x1200_wallpaper_08.jpg?1412993797" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/lamborghinis-hybrid-asterion-supercar-sensible-hat/news#comments Cars Electric cars Hot Stuff Hybrid cars Fri, 10 Oct 2014 12:04:53 +0000 Tein Hee Seow 1449954 at http://www.stuff.tv Parrot Zik 2.0 is now slimmer and prettier http://www.stuff.tv/my/parrot/parrot-zik-20-now-slimmer-and-prettier/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> But looks will only get you so far in this game, you mark our words </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Parrot Zik 2.0" alt="Parrot Zik 2.0" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/main_4.jpg?1412929326" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/fraser-macdonald" title="View user profile.">Fraser Macdonald</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>I&rsquo;ve already got some decent headphones.

But it&rsquo;s not all colour and cosiness, the new versions are yet more capable of conjuring up a capital cacophony.</p> <p><strong>Well, that&rsquo;s good to hear.</strong><br />The headphones have no fewer than eight microphones for measuring ambient noise levels, as well as a bone conduction microphone for better voice clarity during handsfree calls. There&rsquo;s a better DAC onboard, and an improved Android/iOS app that lets you muck about with the equaliser and noise cancellation levels. That is, unless you&rsquo;ve downloaded your favourite band&rsquo;s custom EQ &ndash; a original Zik feature that continues with the new version. The swipy touch-sensitive music controls on the headphones also remain.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Parrot Zik 2.0" alt="Parrot Zik 2.0" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/4_13.jpg?1412929326" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Parrot Zik 2.0" alt="Parrot Zik 2.0" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/3_17.jpg?1412929326" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Hmm, lots going on.

Like a child setting fire to the greenhouse or a dog reducing all your shoes to leathery shreds, Kawasaki has created a carbon-fibre encrusted, tech-laden scream for attention. Perhaps it&rsquo;s from watching its rivals Honda and Yamaha getting primetime MotoGP love &ndash; a race series that Kwak pulled out of in order to concentrate on its successful World Superbike and MXGP motocross campaigns.

Honestly, we try and send you out into the world properly informed and you&rsquo;re just just dribbling on the pictures&hellip; It&rsquo;s got wings, like an F1 car, for stability. Look at the big words up there, where it says &ldquo;most powerful&rdquo;. A 998cc four-cylinder engine is a solid base for a sportsbike, but Kawasaki has gone and done something oft-talked about in the bike business &ndash; they&rsquo;ve supercharged it. The H2R makes nearly 300bhp, which stomps all over the previous &ldquo;most powerful&rdquo; badge-holder, BMW&rsquo;s S1000RR.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>How fast does it go? </strong><br />What a terribly inelegant question.

Kawasaki has been quiet about the electronics package for the H2R, but it&rsquo;ll certainly have some level of traction control and probably active suspension. Top speed is kind of a moot point in bikes, though, because of their inherently poor aerodynamics &ndash; it&rsquo;ll likely do over 320kph, but not dramatically more.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Supercharger!" alt="Kawasaki H2R" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/1_6.jpg?1412559469" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Kawasaki H2R" alt="Kawasaki H2R" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/2_12.jpg?1412559469" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" title="Kawasaki H2R" alt="Kawasaki H2R" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/5_13.jpg?1412559469" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Whatever.

Sometimes, within the confines of relatively featureless black boxes, life-changing functionality can be found. In this case, the removal of some of those pesky HDMI cables that are snaking around your house, tripping up the maid and chewed by the dog. Previously available only in Europe but now wired up British-style, the WHD200 forms an up-to-20m wireless link between the end of two HDMI cables.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Twenty metres!

However, the higher frequency makes the signal less capable of travelling through walls and windows. Less clever. Chief use case scenario then, far as we can see, is for someone who has a dual TV and projector setup in the same room.</p> <p>The transmitter box has two HDMI 1.4 inputs and one output, so day-to-day you can watch TV on your normal TV box, but wirelessly send the signal to your roof-mounted megaprojector for special occasions.

You wanna get a GoPro, mate. Kevin Block uses GoPro.&rdquo; It&rsquo;s so boring when decent product design meets popular consensus and before you know it, people are word-of-mouthing all over the shop and, boom, everybody&rsquo;s got a GoPro. And no other action camera can get a look in. Not even Contour, which used to be popular then disappeared off the market and now is back. Look at the iPhone, for example.</p> <p><strong>What about the iPhone?</strong><br />Well, it&rsquo;s quite good, isn&rsquo;t it? It works quite well and it&rsquo;s well-made and it&rsquo;s fashionable, so everyone buys it, and the whole thing is an Ouroboros tail-chomping snake of self-congratulatory iPhone buying and enjoying. And it makes us sick, frankly.</p> <p><strong>You&rsquo;re saying, if something&rsquo;s good then we shouldn&rsquo;t buy it?</strong><br />Yes! Well, no. At least consider some alternatives. Like this Contour Roam3. It&rsquo;s different, because instead of the GoPro&rsquo;s unaerodynamic flat profile, it&rsquo;s barrel shaped. Like the barrel of a gun. Which means that instead of looking like a Teletubby, you can mount the Contour on the side of your helmet and look like a future soldier or a Predator or something.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>I quite like the GoPro chest mount actually. </strong><br />You quite like being obtuse is what you quite like. And before you start rabbiting on about your 3D-printed narwhal mounts or whatever, you should know that the Contour has a standard tripod mount in addition to the slidey slots, so there&rsquo;s lots of mounts and accessories you can find for it. Its lens twists round 270-degrees, for even more flexibility. But do you know what you won&rsquo;t find on the Roam3?</p> <p><strong>OK, what won&rsquo;t you find on the Roam3? </strong><br />A huge pricetag! It&rsquo;s just &pound;190 (RM1010) from contourshop.com, and that gets you 1080p/30fps video, a laser level and 10m waterproofness without an extra case. Match that, GoPro lover.</p> <p><strong>Um, the 1080/30 GoPro Hero3 White Edition is &pound;200 (RM1060) with its waterproof housing. And it has Wi-Fi. </strong><br />Ah, dammit. The Contour doesn&rsquo;t have wireless, or an app. And you know why GoPro can up the specs for not much money? Because people like you keep buying GoPros, so GoPros get cheap because there are so many GoPros being bought! Sickening. Now, have you seen this?

I don&#39;t need a wireless charger.</strong><br />That&#39;s what you think. Tektos, the company behind the first Qimini wireless charging plate, saw an opportunity in wireless charging and wanted to create something that consumers can carry around to cafes, their cars, offices or even embed it on their furniture. It&rsquo;s the whole idea of adding convenience to our lives and not having it restricted to cords.</p> <p><strong>Again, why would I need a wireless charger?&nbsp;</strong><br />To top up your phone&#39;s battery anytime, anywhere? The word Deuce indicates there are two options available - it acts as a wireless charging plate, recognising when your phone is fully charged and then charges itself.</p> <p><strong>Say that again. Charge itself?</strong><br />Oh wait, did we forget to mention that it&nbsp;has a 2000mAh battery built-in to give your phone some extra juice when you desperately need to satisfy your Facebook addiction?</p> <p><strong>2000mAh doesn&#39;t sound like a lot...</strong><br />It really depends on what your mobile device is, because different units have batteries of various capacities. In general, you should get about 35 per cent (on devices like the LG G3 or Samsung Galaxy Note III) to 75 per cent (on the likes of the iPhone 5S) juice added to your device after a charge. More importantly, it charges at the same speed as your main charger would.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Odd, it looks like a coaster.

There&rsquo;s aircraft-grade aluminium and lamb&#39;s leather in the band, while the cups are made from a comfortable memory foam covered in soft, hand-stitched lamb&rsquo;s leather. They&rsquo;re a lot more understated and stylish than some of Vertu&#39;s previous handsets, in other words. And they&rsquo;re made in England, so you&rsquo;d be supporting local business by buying them over some cheaper cans made in, say, Shenzhen.</p> <p><strong>They do look a bit bulky, though</strong><br />They&rsquo;re actually surprisingly light: just 230g. And they come in a lovely quilted magnetic carrying pouch, so you can put them in your bag without having to worry about a stray set of keys scratching them up.</p> <p><strong>Are they phone compatible?</strong><br />Of course, Vertu being first and foremost a phone manufacturer. Two cables are supplied &ndash; you can choose between audio only or audio with volume controls and in-line microphone.</p> <p><strong>And is there a button on the cable that calls a concierge for me?</strong><br />Now you&rsquo;re just being daft.

They even smell pricey, too; like a leather armchair or the interior of a sports car. Pop them on your head and they have a satisfyingly weighty feel; the memory foam cushions are comfy and block outside noise effectively, though the band is quite tricky to adjust when they&#39;re on your head.</p> <p>But how do they sound? Perfectly good, actually. Noise isolation is effective, the bass is punchy&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;but not overwhelming&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;and there&#39;s plenty of crisp detail in the mid-range. There is a catch, though; they don&#39;t sound RM1000 better than premium on-ears from other manufacturers like B&amp;O. Sure, you&#39;re probably not looking at these for audio quality alone; and the build quality of the cans is certainly impressive. Though the flimsy-feeling plastic 3-button remote lets the side down, rather; if you&#39;re not planning to use it for calls, probably best to pop off the magnetic ear cushion and swap it out for a standard cable.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-box-out-byline"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/stephen-graves" title="View user profile.">Stephen Graves</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/vertu/vertu-breaks-new-ground-hp-1v-headphones/news#comments Headphones Hot Stuff Vertu Mon, 22 Sep 2014 09:34:16 +0000 Elissa Loi 1448329 at http://www.stuff.tv The new Mazda MX-5 is the affordable Jag F-Type we've all been waiting for http://www.stuff.tv/my/new-mazda-mx-5-affordable-jag-f-type-weve-all-been-waiting/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Sleek styling and tempting price tag means the new MX-5 could be the ultimate sports car steal </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Mini F-Type anyone?" alt="Mini F-Type anyone?" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/MazdaMX5Main.jpg?1411301608" /> </div> </div> </div> <p><strong>Did someone put a Jaguar F-Type on a hot wash?</strong></p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/leonpoultney" title="View user profile.">Leon Poultney</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>That&#39;s a shame.

Unfortunately, it also buys super bright LED headlights, meaning the sweet pop-up lamps of Mk1 models are well and truly consigned to the history books.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/hot-stuff" target="_blank">All our awesome Hot Stuff</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Sleek new styling but still affordable" alt="Sleek new styling but still affordable" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/MX-5_2014_exterior_02__jpg300.jpg?1411301608" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/new-mazda-mx-5-affordable-jag-f-type-weve-all-been-waiting/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/new-mazda-mx-5-affordable-jag-f-type-weve-all-been-waiting/news#comments By numbers Cars Hot Stuff Fri, 19 Sep 2014 15:18:04 +0000 Elissa Loi 1448205 at http://www.stuff.tv Leica M celebrates 60th birthday with screenless M Edition 60 http://www.stuff.tv/my/leica/leica-m-celebrates-60th-birthday-screen-free-m-edition-60/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> It’s back to basics with this Audi-designed limited edition rangefinder </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Leica M celebrates 60th birthday with screenless M Edition 60" alt="Leica M celebrates 60th birthday with screenless M Edition 60" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/leica-m-edition-60-main.jpg?1411089397" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>A new Leica M rangefinder? Oh hell yeah, baby!</strong><br />Calm down for a second. Yes, this is a new M series camera, but it&rsquo;s not just any old M series camera: it&rsquo;s a special limited edition model released to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first true M, the Leica M3. Its name? The Leica M Edition 60, appropriately enough.</p> <p><strong>So is this digital or film-based?</strong><br />It&rsquo;s a digital camera, but not as we know it. For starters, there&rsquo;s no screen, so y&ndash;</p> <p><strong>What?! No screen?</strong><br />Correct. Leica describes the M Edition 60 as &ldquo;the first digital camera to concentrate exclusively on the bare functions required for digital photography&rdquo; &ndash; shutter speed, aperture, ISO and focus. So on the back there&rsquo;s no screen, but rather an ISO dial to change sensitivity.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>How do I frame my shots?</strong><br />Through the viewfinder, silly.

It also comes with a Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 lens.</p> <p><strong>It doesn&rsquo;t look the M-P though&hellip;</strong><br />That&rsquo;s because both the body and the lens have been specially reworked by Audi Design. They&rsquo;re way more retro than Leica&rsquo;s current range, and made of stainless steel. The camera body also has leather trim.
