ODA completes upside down condo in NYC




ODA New York has a history of using out-of-the-box ideas to both maximize desirable features and make the most out of awkward plots.

Gallery: All-terrain teardrops mil-spec boxes and other camping trailers from Overland Expo West




We've taken a look at the camper vans, and one pretty damn cool Jeep camper, but many of the campers of Overland Expo West 2018 ride behind the main vehicle. Once again, the show was awash with rugged expedition trailers from established brands and newcomers everything from lifting, sliding and popping shape-shifters, to military-grade blocks of run-flat, go-anywhere off-road destruction. If you want to explore the muddiest, dustiest and rockiest parts of the world and tow a temporary home with you, there's a trailer that's just right for you. And if not, there's a builder who will help you customize one.

Tascam shows that audio cassettes are not dead yet with release of new twin deck




Though digital music accounts for much of what we now listen to, old school formats like vinyl and audio cassettes steadfastly refuse to disappear. The former is enjoying something of a healthy revival at the moment, but trying to find an album released on audio cassette is a little more challenging.

If you feel like you've had some drawn-out breakups, they probably have nothing on the supercontinent of Pangaea, which took tens of millions of years to split up.

With its 3.5-liter twin turbo V6, the 450-horsepower F-150 Raptor already packs plenty of punch, but the way Ford sees it there's more to off-road muscle than sheer engine power.

Its obvious strength is in measuring curved or uneven surfaces whether you're dealing with up-and-down or side-to-side bends, or both. And it's digital, giving a read-out in your preferred units.
