Leveraxe Or How To Chop Wood Easier And Quicker
Choping wood is not an easy task. You need to be strong and master the technique to be able to do a good job. As for the axe, not much happened to improve it over the past few hundreds of years, so chopping wood in the 21st century it’s pretty much the same as people were doing it back in the 16th century!

That was until now! Thank to Finish inventor Heikki Kärnä the good, ol’ wood chopping axe finally passed into the 21st century! The LeverAxe exploits physics findings to make chopping easier and more efficient. While a classic axe has a centered gravity center and works by passing momentum to split the wood log, the LeverAxe has a side positioned gravity center which allows it to act more as a lever to split wood. When the LeverAxe hits the log, the kinetic energy given by the side-positioned gravity center as well as the curved shape of the cutting edge force the axe head to split apart the wood logs. Check out the video and let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

SR Auto Group Winter Tuned Lamborghini Aventador
Preparing a car for winter means for most of us to hook up the winter tires, check the liquids and make sure the car’s systems are in good shape and functional. Well, that’s for any regular person, not for the guys over the SR Auto Group, a British Columbia, Canada based auto tuner! – also check the Lamborghini Veneno – The 4.5M USD Roadster and the Mercedes SLS GT3 AMG we featured earlier.

Their latest project – the Project700 Wintermode Lamborghini Aventador – is a cool proof of they mean when they say “Winter Mode Car“.
The tuned Lamborghini was painted in carbon and wrapped in satin black vinyl for scratch protection, features of Pirelli Sotto Zeros mounted on strong powder coated finish PUR 4OUR black rims, a PUR Basics Lowering System kit, a PUR Aero Carbon Fiber set of spoilers and skirts.
One last thing that needed to be solved was the storage space for the winter gear (read skis, boots, snowboards and anything else you might need on the slopes). An 8 ft (that’s about 2.4 meters) Thule roof ski box was carefully wrapped in the same satin black vinyl, fitted and mounted on the top of the Aventador allows extra storage for the passengers sports equipment.
