Patrick A Razo- Form Beyond Function | CREATURES AND CHARACTERS

Lost Boy lostboyworld.com/ Earth. The Future. Year Unknown. Population: Zero. As featured in the sci-fi film LOSTBOY, this mean-looking motorcycle concept by designer Patrick A Razo is part steampunk and part ultra-futurism! At the center of its S-shaped frame, a sort of ragbag jumble of mechanical parts, seemingly chopped from other machines. On either end, spherical wheels with gecko-grip for precision maneuvering in any direction. This low-slung, no-frills bad boy isn’t for the faint of heart!

The Obsessively Detailed Map of American Literature’s Most Epic Road Trips

The Obsessively Detailed Map of American Literature’s Most Epic Road Trips (Atlas Obscura) The above map is the result of a painstaking and admittedly quixotic effort to catalog the country as it has been described in the American road-tripping literature. It includes every place-name reference in 12 books about cross-country travel, from Mark Twain’s Roughing It(1872) to Cheryl Strayed’s Wild (2012), and maps the authors’ routes on top of one another. You can track an individual writer’s descriptions of the landscape as they traveled across it, or you can zoom in…
