The company’s 3D sets have been available in Korea for over a month, have recently appeared for sale in the U.S. and European markets, and yesterday Australian availability was announced for next week.

Infiniti will be letting loose a new sport utility vehicle later this year under the QX56 nameplate. The chassis and body for the QX56 SUV is all fresh for 2011.

The Adamo XPS is a daring slice of design and engineering. Quite frankly, it’s batshit insane.
I mean that in the best possible way.
It really is impossibly thin. I felt like I was holding a single sheet of aluminum that was contoured into the curved shape of a laptop.
