Ditch the jet ski this summer and pick yourself up the Innerspace Sea Breacher to fulfill those 007 childhood fantasies. Constructed with a F-22 Raptor canopy, the three-quarter-inch thick solid polycarbonate can withstand hard inverted landings and the sliding mechanism is tough enough to drive the Sea Breacher at full speed with the canopy wide open.
Once you've mastered handling this watercraft, you can order one to spec and compete in the Aquabatic Racing League.
The current race-ready Seabreacher is powered by a 250hp supercharged Atkins Marine rotary engine, and can achieve speeds of up to 50mph on the surface and a staggering 20mph while fully submerged! Vehicles can dive to a maximum depth of five feet and can jump out of the water as high as ten feet.

This minimalist turntable certainly looks like their handiwork: But nope, that's the Essential II model from modern-day manufacturer Pro-Ject Audio Systems, a company based in Austria. That design seems about as pared-down as

With any luck, you'll never see a police badge up close. And even if one is flashed in your face, afterwards as you're sitting on the curb wearing zip-ties you probably won't be thinking "Gee, I wonder how those badges are made." But for those who are curious, a Brooklyn-based
And why do we have to shop vintage just to get something that works?
After graduating design school and finding work as a CAD jockey, I donated all of my studio materials to a young design student who needed them.
