Ten years may appear too long to have the glimpse of the Bugatti Veyron, a super sports car designed by Walter de’Silva in 1999 which eventually was rejected by Ferdinand Piech. But any other reason than the design itself isn’t enough for the staunch Bugattists to feel contented about rejection. Moreover, it’s always better late than never. Featuring the basic proportions of the Chiron concept, the Veyron amalgamates the retro Bugatti touches, i.e. round headlamps and split rear window, with the futuristic center cowl that falls over to bisect the windscreen.
A CES Innovations Honoree in both the Media Player and Personal Electronics categories, the “Light Touch” from the house of Light Blue Optics is an interactive projector that featuring multi-touch technology turns any flat surface into a touchscreen. Liberating the multimedia content from the small screen, thanks to Holographic Laser Projection (HLP) technology, the Light Touch produces bright, high-quality video images in WVGA resolution, so you could access the content as you do on other portable devices. Moreover, you can control the projector and interact with applications by touching the image with your finger, as it comes integrated with infrared sensors which transform the projected image into a 10.1″ virtual touch-sensitive display. Be it retail, living or workplace, you can interact with multimedia content and create your own environment with minimum fuss.

Keri replaces Trina with Nicki for the remix of Get Ya Money Up for the female anthem.
Fashion lifestyle blogger Marcus Troy has collaborated with the studio, creating a very nice pair of Bespokes. The Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke sports a black/grey/turquoise colorway, using a team of premium materials such as waterproof denim, loopwheeler cotton, and rubberized leather to name a few. Troy’s name is lasered onto the lace plates, or “dubres” as Troy emphasizes, to really make this one of one personal. These are definitely a great pair of sneakers, and perhaps the only time one would be happy to drop $820 for shoes.

Last year I taught a group of 8th graders financial literacy at a local Jr High School. This young man was definitely not apart of that class. As a matter of fact he is in another class, in which I belonged to at his age. A class of young black men who are intrigued with financial success in different business avenues, which seem a world away to many young black men. This is what putting people on game was established upon. Meet Damon Williams the 14 year old stock investor.
