Up, up and away in a ThunderPack

thunderpack.jpg$100,000 can buy you a fair amount of video games in which you can pretend to fly around in. You could also sink that money into a prototype of Thunderbolt Aerosystems’ new jet-powered ThunderPack.

Don’t expect too much air time with this device – Thunderbolt says the ThunderPack has been tested to offer 75 seconds of flight time. On the positive, that is reportedly a 300 percent increase over what other systems offer. We, of course, did not realize the rocket pack market was suddenly something you could shop for at Sharper Image.

Sick Brick: 160 Megapixel Camera from Seitz

Posted in Cameras,Sick Brick by Conner Flynn on January 17th, 2008

160 Megapixel Camera from Seitz
This odd-looking camera that looks like a cross between a vintage and modern version captures odd-sized pictures at an incredible 160 Megapixels.

Don’t look for this one at your local Best Buy. It’s for specialty photography and the prices for a kit can go as high as $40,000. Notice how the grip ergonomics have been worked out to help keep a firm hold on this expensive beast. It’s MUCH bigger than your average point and shoot, at 6 x 17 inches. One full resolution image taken with this camera at 48-bit colour depth will take up 900 MB of storage space!
