Paramount Pictures has delivered the first trailer for its upcoming sequel to 2018’s acclaimed horror movie A Quiet Place on January 1, 2020.

The trailer kicks off with a flashback to Day 1 of the alien invasion, before we cut to Evelyn (Emily Blunt) and her children having to make their way out of the barn, to cautiously trekking through the world’s post-apocalyptic hell-scape until they encounter a fellow survivor (Cillian Murphy) who is less than optimistic about the state of civilization. 

His ominous words of advice? “The people that are left are not the kind of people worth saving.”

This Stunning Hermes Speedster E Was Inspired by Porsche’s Rare Classic 356 Sports Car https://fargo1ife.com/the-stunning-hermes-speedster-e-was-inspired-by-porsches-rare-classic-356-sports-car/ Tue, 31 Dec 2019 18:46:41 +0000 https://fargo1ife.com/?p=82044 Power and elegance combine in an electric day boat that evokes the 1950s but has 21st Century capability.]]>

Inspired by the legendary Porsche 356 Speedster that dates back to 1959, UK-based yacht manufacturer Seven Seas designed a beautiful 22.14′ vessel channeling Porsche’s spirit, from the clean lines and raked windscreen to its stitched leather interior and analog instruments.

The boat features a handmade interior that includes analog instrumentation and a wooden steering wheel. It also has a retractable convertible roof for versatility, and a low center of gravity to keep the boat stable.

Nicks Boats

The low-resistance “hydrodynamic” hull is comprised of seven layers put together in a honeycomb configuration with airtight compartments, the outermost made of vinyl ester resin. Combined with an electric propulsion system that’s good for a 45 mph top speed, this construction makes the Hermes Speedster E one of the “most efficient” production boats in the world, according to Classic Driver.

Thanks to it’s steep bow the boat can slip through rough waves in 72-degree angle, ensuring a smooth ride for up to five passengers — two in the passenger and pilot seats and three on a bench seat in the rear.

Also, everything from the the bow and all-weather “sunroof” fabric cover to the interior’s hand-stitched leather are available in a range of custom colors.

The Hermes Speedster E is available for purchase via Dutch watercraft dealer Nicks Boats for $133,600, but pricing and specs for the US version are available upon request through Seven Seas Yachts’ website. Catch the company at Boot Düsseldorf 2020 in Hall 05/5A22 in January.

Stanford Upgrades Its Driverless DeLorean for Better Drifting https://fargo1ife.com/stanford-upgrades-its-driverless-delorean-for-better-drifting/ Fri, 27 Dec 2019 14:36:40 +0000 https://fargo1ife.com/?p=81526 Teaching a driverless DeLorean to steer with the agility and precision of a human driver.]]>

After revamping and electrifying an old DeLorean, back in 2015, the team from Stanford’s Dynamic Lab is back again with their autonomous vehicle dubbed MARTY (Multiple Actuator Research Test bed for Yaw control), for another ride, this time showing off its impeccable precision and performance.

Back then, it did donuts but not much more. Fast forward four years and MARTY is now capable of drifting its way through a multi-turn kilometer-long test track in mere minutes, while drifting along with human-level precision. Who knows, we’ll might get a chance to see it go downhill the Tianmen Mountain, in the far far future.

Superimposed frames, at 0.5-second intervals, from an overhead video of a successful, fully autonomous “Figure 8” drifting experiment on MARTY. This experiment is conducted at speeds of 50km/h, and transitions through +/- 40 degrees of sideslip in about a second. (Image credit: Jonathan Goh)

“We’re trying to develop automated vehicles that can handle emergency maneuvers or slippery surfaces like ice or snow,” mechanical engineer Chris Gerdes said in a statement. “We’d like to develop automated vehicles that can use all of the friction between the tire and the road to get the car out of harm’s way. We want the car to be able to avoid any accident that’s avoidable within the laws of physics.”

K-Swiss Celebrates ‘The Matrix’ 20th Anniversary With New Sneaker Collection https://fargo1ife.com/k-swiss-celebrates-the-matrix-20th-anniversary-with-new-sneaker-collection/ Thu, 26 Dec 2019 12:41:54 +0000 https://fargo1ife.com/?p=81520 Just in time for the New Year. ]]>

While the world is still debating wether the life you live now is actually just a computer simulation in which the distant future looks like The Matrix or even worse, your digital self still has to be stylish at all costs.

K-Swiss revealed “The Matrix Code Collection,” new Classic 2000 kicks and K-Slides to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the sci-fi epic’s premiere.

As you’ve already noticed, the shoe comes in predominantly black, the cascading green symbols familiar from the movie, and the title on the tongue. But that’s not all, in addition to those more obvious touches, the leather Classic 2000s feature green accents reminiscent of sudden glitches in the programming and red and blue threads — like the pills Neo has to choose from when he is deciding whether he wants to see how far the rabbit hole goes.

While The Matrix 4 is still in the works and is expected sometime in May 2021 — on the same day as the fourth John Wick movie. There are no price details just yet, however, K-Swiss’ “The Matrix Code” collection will be available for purchase online and in stores everywhere on December 31.

Drake Sits Down With Rap Radar For a Candid Interview https://fargo1ife.com/drake-sits-down-with-rap-radar-for-a-candid-interview/ Thu, 26 Dec 2019 01:13:11 +0000 https://fargo1ife.com/?p=81539 Discussing his beef with Pusha-T, getting booed off stage at Camp Flog Gnaw, and more.]]>

Drake recently sat down for a lengthy interview with rapper Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller for Rap Radar.

Taking place at Drake’s home, Drake discussed his origin story as an artist, including the impact of his early music, meeting Lil Wayne,  his recent collaboration with Chris Brown , and more. Watch the full interview, which clocks in at over two hours, above.

The artist also addressed his ongoing feud with Pusha-T. When asked if he could ever squash their beef, Drake said, “I have no desire to ever mend anything with that person.” When Wilson asked him if Pusha went too far by revealing the existence of Drake’s child, Drake said, “I’ll say this, I tip my hat to the chess move. I mean, it was a genius play in the game of chess. And definitely warranted my first quote-unquote “loss” in the competitive sport of rapping.”

Drake went on to explain that part of the reason he didn’t immediately tell the world about his son was because a DNA test was pending at the time. Drake later said of Pusha’s work: “Some people like his music. I personally don’t ’cuz I don‘t believe any of it.”

At one point in the interview, Drake discussed the importance of tracks like “Lust for Life” and “Say You Will.” “Be Present in your ‘who is this?’ moment,” he says, “because you’re going to be chasing that ‘who is this?’ moment for the rest of your career.”

The icon also briefly touched on his relationship with Kanye West, saying, “I think he kind of recruited a guy with a similar dislike for me, no matter what he says interviews.” He added: “He can tell whoever, ‘I got love for him’ or whatever, but it’s not love. It’s…there’s something there that bothers him deeply. Yeah, I can’t fix it for him, so, it just is what it is.”
