Lit Motors thinks we're just driving around in too much car Video Transcript
I'll bet most of the time you drive your probably alone in a car -- other big machine. With a slew of empty seats and three to 4000 pounds of metal plastic and glass on four wheels. Anything about that strike you as out of balance. In this -- that conversation we -- a guy who thinks -- He's put together a company that believes the perfect vehicle lies somewhere between your car a motorcycle. And -- spinning top. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Daniel Kim is the founder of San Francisco's -- motors and at this prototype. Called the C one. And two wheels like a bike fully enclosed -- car and self balancing like nothing you've ever seen. It does -- voters likely that I see it's got two wheels that you know are -- -- -- a motorcycle but it doesn't. What we're saying it doesn't -- -- motorcycle in any other way. Right well it's the best of both worlds though the only motorcycle parts would be the fact that it has two wheels you. And that Tilton means oh that's the years everything else basin has all the creature comforts of a car and think. It's more than a fair use an awful -- and -- closely reviewed in the -- a contract -- you take it -- drugs now you're writing in your house with -- -- leathers -- no -- that this is the most interesting things about this vehicle -- it's basically you said it's like -- you're driving your -- right but -- also -- -- -- if you -- greater visibility when you're driving a motorcycle but apparently out. Up in the states is in point is incredibly important to be seen it yet. According all of this spot behind it's bigger statement here yeah -- -- I'm in your blind spot I'm crossing the road you know. I am well I'm going into your field -- compare this to a motorcycle this is a thousand times -- But without a doubt the headline on the C one is its ability to stay upright on its own. Even in the event of a side impact collisions thanks to a couple of gyros that are unique to this vehicle. So. Assuming the secrets -- -- know the secrets of the most unique to what. The stories the ideas that two Wheeler. Wheeler. All absolutely emitted light that -- people who thought. -- -- You know it it was just me as a you know with the help of the great engineering team and so. But you know our -- are -- in the controls for these stars go. So here are too -- to our Scopes our first full scale attempt. And -- -- -- large flywheel on the inside that spins like seven to ten pounds -- PM. And that this is happening around. 500 foot pounds of torque that's a lot of -- at the lot of torque. And that Tor is used to keep this thing opera -- so in every situation you'll be stable we actually bring safety. To motorcycle. Okay so here's the Cyrus got -- technology in action and these guys have got this thing I'm. On one hand on here and I can feel it resists. Resist any interesting -- -- -- It's got a -- and it sounds pretty impressive it's just those two gyros down there creating. These hundreds of foot pounds of torque. Aside from balancing itself gives team names for the C one to do zero to sixty in about six seconds. 120 mile hour top speed and a range pushing 200 miles on a bull charged that should take no more than a handful of hours that phones. Now the real -- hassle because -- I'm tall enough to just any car let's see how -- sitting here. Works yeah yeah -- might start up of August anything and it's kind of a win for me -- stuff published behind news though. Yet that the -- -- are quite good now. Let your big idea here. Right so the big picture is you know -- that a mass production there's a huge high energy problem and transportation the biggest -- because eyes that. So while we're looking really to change -- the way people move around. A -- have a very efficient platform. Hand that bring a lot of value to -- you know not just the United States but also developing countries were to -- our happiness. But you -- just aiming at the developing world it's everywhere. It's everywhere it's it's Hugh Wheeler that's -- so -- -- -- a traffic jam to it is great opera thing lanes are about topping off point senator commute. -- incredibly sustainable platform. A you know this is the future transit. To be sure the C one is a ways off. -- if all goes well deliveries begin in late 2014. And around 44000 dollars but even as it sits today without -- windows or even -- decency. It's part of a Renaissance of new ways they're imagining how we handle transportation. With a little more balance. -- --
Our Love To Admire is at once unmistakably Interpol and undeniably new. The witty and perverse "No I In Threesome" is an upbeat ode to shaking up a staid relationship propelled by Carlos D's peerless bass melody while the tenderly observant "Pace Is the Trick" proves that the band are still the masters of the dramatic – check the painful pause right before the sinfully satisfying return of Sam's thundering drums and Daniel's ringing lead guitar. The band's impressively seductive evolution is obvious all over the record, but never more so than on tracks like "Mammoth," "Who Do You Think" and on the album's lyrical centerpiece, the ghostly "Rest My Chemistry." While Daniel is understandably proud of the song he cautions against reading too much autobiography into its lyrics. "We always leave the interpretation to the listener," he says. "I mean, you shouldn't watch a movie for the first time listening to the director's commentary!"

There's an excruciatingly difficult time in every young man's life between when he starts thinking about sex and when he can actually do something about it. Meet Deacon (Eric von Detten), Matt (Daniel Farber), and Fred (Tony Denman), three typical American teenagers stuck right in the middle of that horrible age when it seems like life is passing you by while you're just standing still. They'll do anything for even a glimpse of sex and spend their mornings pirating X-rated movies from Fred's after-school job at the video store. But when Fred is fired, the well runs dry, and the young entrepreneurs come up with a new plan: make their own "adult" film. Along the way, they interview a gaggle of toothless hookers, butt heads with Deacon's nemesis Jake (Riley Smith), befriend the sexy but no-nonsense stripper turned actress Ashley (Sarah Jane Potts), and fuel the wrath of local porno king Vic Ramalot (Horatio Sanz). It isn't long before our heroes have to get themselves out of the mess they've gotten into - which turns out to be the wackiest series of misadventures ever to take place in high school. Directed by David M. Evans. Also starring Tom Arnold and Amy Smart.
