JumboJetTable1

Bring the iconic Boeing 747 into your conference room with MotoArt’s newest piece made from a General Electric engine nacelle. At 12’ wide this high-mirror polished table seats up to 12, and includes a set of 6 pop-up connection ports. The custom fabricated engine stator is set off with internal LED lighting in a color or your choice, and topped with a B-52 engine spinner.

This is probably the coolest conference table from MotoArt that I have ever seen, made from a Boeing 747 Engine. They make amazing pieces of furniture from old plane parts, but this is one of the best I have seen them make. The process they go through is exhausting to get the perfect piece, and thats one of the reasons why it is so expensive. I have yet to walk into an office with MotoArt furniture, it would take a very rich company to buy that sort of furniture. Still I really love this meeting table.

Price: $35’000 – $45’000

Koreans & StarCraft

KoreansStarCraft

With the coming release of StarCraft II there is a lot of buzz going around and people playing StarCraft the original game to catch up to the previous strategy and units. I for one just plan on playing it on my PC first for practice then moving on to the online gaming, but Korea takes this very differently. It’s called E-sports, there are leagues and thousands of Starcraft players, there are tournaments with a huge fan base, with government entities ruling these tournaments. Even Korean Air painted two of their 747 with StarCraft across the planes, I don’t even know how they worked that out with Blizzard. They have training camps for Starcraft just like football or basketball camps, where kids are trained to play harder, faster and smarter. They train to increase their APM or Actions Per Minute, I can’t believe how fast some of these guys are moving their fingers in complex actions, I can’t do that messing around on a keyboard! Some of these players have fan clubs, they are in teams, some of them make a huge amount of money. I just hope that whatever server I play that I don’t play against any of these guys, I would be annihilated.

Heathrow Stop


I have been tired form the last few quick trips over the last couple of weeks. It was a quick stop in London then back again, so I was flying through a few times. The best thing I like to do is sit next to the Window and watch the planes come and go. British Airways have not been the best airlines over the past couple of years but they are still pretty good, everyone seems to have a horror story these days flying on an airline and I can’t blame them. Going through terminal 5 was very confusing, it was built to be like a maze with a million escalators, I have never went up and down so many times just to find the way out of the airport. And Terminal 1 looks like an after thought, I was just happy they had some food since I was hungry. Still seeing the colors of British Airways on those planes just feels very nice, I love taking pictures of them, but one time I would like to take pictures directly from the runway if I could to get the majestic look of these planes.
