Volkswagen brought their I.D. R electric race car to the 2018 Pikes Peak hill climb with one mission — to smash the previous record in the Unlimited class. And smash they did, setting a new record over 15 seconds faster than the one set in 2013 by a gas-powered turbocharged Peugeot. Watch the entire record-breaking run from a birds-eye helicopter view — even the helicopter has a hard time keeping up.
American legend Evel Knievel passed away in 2007, and the void he left has yet to be filled — until now. Travis Pastrana has raced everything from NASCAR's Bush series to the American Rally Championship, but his love has always been motorcycles. Now, he's recreated three of Evel's most popular jumps — the fountain at Caesar's Palace, 52 crushed cars, and 16 Greyhound buses, all while riding a custom Indian motorcycle.
The Issey Miyake Watch project allows different designers to create a timepiece using the design language of their choosing. The latest example was created by Nao Tamura, the first female tapped by the project, and is named the "1/6" due to the watch's hand movement of six beats per second. Tamura was also influenced by traditional measuring tools like beakers and glasses in an attempt to look back at a time before digital measurements. The dial features a long second hand that sweeps over the outer markers from 12 to 6 o'clock and inner fine markers, while the case has a crown at 6 o'clock. Each one is powered by rock solid mechanical NH35 hand-wound movement. Choose from the grey stainless steel case with a white face and a black leather strap, or the black PVD coated case with black face and black Milanese bracelet.
Case Diameter: 43mm / Case Height: 11mm / Lug Width: 20mm / Power Reserve: up to 41 hours / Jewels: 24

When you think of surfing destinations, you think California, Hawaii, Australia — not NYC's East River. But sometimes you can't get away to a surfer's paradise and just have to use what you got. Casey Neistat did just that when he got a group of friends together for some Independence Day powerboarding on one of the smelliest rivers in the US.

The demo details the inner workings of combat, travel, customization, loot, and multiplayer systems, giving a good idea of what to expect when the game releases in early 2019.
Humans are social creatures, and while solitude can be good for everyone, too much can be extremely harmful. One way we've learned about isolation is by solitary confinement in prison. The effects of solitary are well-known — mental issues, violence, and hallucinations — and have also been studied with primates in the lab. LifeNoggin looks at what happens when we're alone too much, and what that teaches us about ourselves.
