Behold: the Ferrari 488 Pista – a turbocharged,V8, 710bhp track car (or ‘weekend racer’ for those with €240,000 to invest in such a thing).

100km/h in less than 3s, 340km/h top speed and a Side Slip Angle Control system to keep it stuck to the road.

Profligate, but ever so pretty.


A chain reaction marble run perfectly synchronised with Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of the Flowers by kinetic artist Mark Robbins, who sez of it:

After listening to parts of this song hundreds of times to match things up I went a bit crazy

Cavern (1983) by New York new wave band Liquid Liquid – the song that became the backing track of White Lines (Don’t Do It) by Grandmaster Flash.

An infinite loop model train track created by James Risner – pleasingly hypnotic, kinetic shenanigans  in which seven linked trains travel forward and backward at high speed.

Andrew Skelton writes:

“After the recent campaign against yet another tax forced upon the great people of Ireland, I decided to produce this track using actual audio I recorded at public marches, “No way – we won’t pay”. Irish water and the Irish Government need to listen to the people for once. We have been listening to them for too long. Democracy “is what it is”.”
