1968 Ford Mustang from Bullitt Goes for $3.74 million at Auction – Interesting Engineering
In 2018, Ford announced it had found the original 1968 Highland Green Mustang from the movie Bullitt and the internet went crazy. That’s why it was not surprising to see the car fetch a whopping $3.74 million at auction, making it the most expensive Mustang ever sold at auction.

The pivotal moment in the history of car chase scenes
The Mustang was sold by Mecum on Friday in its Kissimmee, Florida auction house. “In 1968, “Bullitt” cemented itself as the pivotal moment in the history of car chase scenes, doing what none had ever done before and setting the standard for all that would follow, earning it the badge of honor that it carries today as the single greatest car chase scene in history. This Highland Green 1968 Ford Mustang GT—the hero car driven by the “King of Cool,” Steve McQueen, in the iconic 1968 film “Bullitt”—is the one that started that enduring legacy,” wrote Mecum on the Mustang’s webpage.
The excitement behind the car lies in the fact that it was one of only two cars used in the movie and that it was the primary car used in the filming. It features in what is considered the best car chase scene in movies ever.
It also has an interesting history. After the film, it was sold to one family and stayed in their hands for decades, only showing up at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show for the unveiling of the latest Bullitt edition Mustang.
“The fact that [the Bullitt Mustang] had disappeared for decades, only to reemerge as an unrestored, movie-car time capsule is something we’ll likely never see again in our lifetimes,” said McKeel Hagerty, CEO of classic car insurer Hagerty, in a statement.
Killer Cyborg Bryan Fury Loves to Laugh in Tekken 8 Reveal – Push Square
A staple of the series since Tekken 3, cyborg madman Bryan Fury returns in Tekken 8 — and he somehow seems even more unhinged than before. His brutal fighting style is very much intact, and he just won’t stop laughing.
Bryan brings Tekken 8’s current roster total to 15, but there’s obviously more to come. Bandai Namco hasn’t really indicated at how many characters will be included at launch, but at the rate it’s pumping out these reveal trailers, we can see it being a fairly large cast.
Are you still waiting on your favourite Tekken character to return? Or do you want to see who’s new? Let out your own evil laugh in the comments section below.
Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – Crisis at Hyrule Castle Walkthrough
Crisis at Hyrule Castle is a main quest in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom that players can initiate by speaking with Purah in Lookout Landing (coordinates -0254, 0153, 0026). In order to complete this quest, fans must work through a variety of tasks, which will send them to the four corners of the surface and beyond. This walkthrough is here to help players complete those tasks and reach the end of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom‘s Crisis at Hyrule Castle main quest.
To Hyrule Castle & Find Captain Hoz
The Crisis at Hyrule Castle begins with a trip to Hyrule Castle, which is situated just north of Lookout Landing. As players walk to this location, they are advised to activate the Kyononis Shrine (coordinates -0206, 0452, 0021) to turn it into a fast travel point. Fans may also want to help Addison at coordinates -0265, 0383, 0021 before making their way to the castle gate, which can be opened with the Ultrahand ability and is situated at coordinates -0254, 0629, 0043.
After passing through the gate, fans should follow the road to reach the First Gatehouse at coordinates -0379, 0850, 0109. Here, players should climb a wall to reach one of the structure’s windows and then use TotK‘s Ascend ability to get up to Captain Hoz at coordinates -0336, 0845, 0183.
To Lookout Landing
Following a conversation with Captain Hoz, players should return to Purah in Lookout Landing to receive some information about the outpost’s Emergency Shelter and Skyview Tower. The first of those locations can be unlocked by speaking with Scorpis at -0254, 0102, 0021, and Tears of the Kingdom fans may to spend some time exploring the underground shelter before visiting the Lookout Landing Skyview Tower at 0291, 0139, 0025.
At the tower, Purah will tell Link about the import of these structures and instruct him to activate the Lookout Landing Skyview Tower by interacting with the terminal and examining the blue circle that is inside. It is during this sequence that players will receive TotK‘s Paraglider, and they should return to Purah once the tower has been activated to move on to the next part of Crisis at Hyrule Castle.
That next part manifests as a lengthy main quest called “Regional Phenomena,” which centers around helping the Rito, Zora, Goron, and Gerudo. This complete walkthrough of Tears of the Kingdom‘s Regional Phenomena quest will help players work through this colossal endeavor, and they can look forward to returning to Purah when the job is done.
Find Princess Zelda in Hyrule Castle
Once players have completed Regional Phenomena and spoken with Purah in Lookout Landing (coordinates -0230, 0150, 0050), they must enter Hyrule Castle in search of Zelda. To reach this location, fans should launch Link from the Lookout Landing Skyview Tower and glide toward its entrance (coordinates -0251, 0963, 0336).
Upon landing in this position, Tears of the Kingdom players will initiate a sequence in which they must visit various locations within Hyrule Castle in an attempt to catch Zelda. While there are many ways to approach this section, here is path that players can use to reach all of Zelda’s positions:
Second Gatehouse (B1)
- Follow the path that travels southeast from the entrance to Hyrule Castle, stopping near coordinates -0215, 0887, 0323.
- Glide east to the Second Gatehouse and drop into the center to encounter Zelda in B1.
- Defeat the Monster Forces
- Exit the Second Gatehouse through the eastern opening and cross the water to reach a landmass.
- Head northeast and climb cliffs and walls near -0095, 0909, 0284.
- Continue northward, working toward the cliff near -0071, 0993, 0294.
- Drop to B2 and follow the path that leads northwest.
- Glide from the cliff at -0134, 1060, 0277 to enter a hole in the Library’s roof.
- Encounter Zelda in B3 and defeat the Monster Forces.
- Climb the stairs on the north side of the Library and follow the path to -0168, 1142, 0225.
- Defeat the Monster Forces.
Princess Zelda’s Room (B1)
- Continue up the stairs and follow the path southwestward to -0345, 0967, 0269.
- Use Ascend and climb stairs until dead end.
- Use Ascend to reach 1F and fall into hole in floor to encounter Zelda in B1
- Defeat Monster Forces.
- Exit room at northwest corner to reach balcony.
- Glide southwest to stairs at -0376, 0977, 0259.
- Follow stairs downward, and drop from cliff to reach B3 entrance at -0396, 0984, 0239.
- Follow path to Zelda and defeat Monster Forces.
- Use Ascend and follow path south to edge of cliff at -0317, 0877, 0259.
- Drop to B3 entrance.
- Follow path to Zelda and defeat Monster Forces.
- Use Ascend to reach 1F.
- Go southeast and climb cliff at -0269, 0887, 0307.
- Go north to encounter Zelda in Sanctum.
Phantom Ganon Boss Fight
Players must now square off against TotK‘s Phantom Ganon and his mimics, and this combat encounter can be easily overcome by maintaining distance and repeatedly firing arrows fused with Bomb Flowers at the enemies. If a player is low on those items, they can also try fusing Fire Fruits to their arrows, though losing out on the bomb’s area-of-effect damage makes that strategy suboptimal.
To Lookout Landing
Once Phantom Ganon is defeated, players should make their way to Lookout Landing and speak with TotK‘s Purah at -0253, 0153, 0026. Fans will receive the Find the Fifth Sage main quest at the end of that conversation, and they should set their sights on completing it.
Find the Fifth Sage
To complete this lengthy main quest, fans must investigate the ring ruins, ascend into the sky, and plunge into the Depths. This full walkthrough of Tears of the Kingdom‘s Find the Fifth Sage will help players get through all of those steps, and the Crisis at Hyrule Castle quest will be marked as complete when they reach the end.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available on Nintendo Switch.
Dyson Selling Latest Multitasking Tool—Air-Purifying Headphones—for Just $950 – Decider
You’re not alone if you mostly think of vacuums and haircare when you think of Dyson.
After all, that is the brand’s claim to fame, from its powerful corded and cordless vacuum cleaners to the viral Airwrap.
Headphones aren’t typically the first product that comes to mind when most people think of Dyson.
And yet, the company’s again struck viral gold with its first-ever wearable product, the new Dyson Zone headphones — even if the reaction is mostly confusion.
The Zone headphones aren’t an ordinary pair of over-the-ear headphones with their advanced noise cancellation technology and ultra-low distortion engineering; of course, there’s a Dyson twist, and it’s exactly what you might expect from a company that’s perfected different ways of using air.
These headphones also double as an air purifier.
Each ear has filters installed that are said to remove gases and 99% of pollutants as small as 0.1 microns, per Dyson. So the air that … hits your ears … will always be as clean as possible.
That’s not even the most confusing part, though, because, besides just the headphones, the Zone comes with a detachable visor that covers your nose and mouth so you can breathe in filtered air.
If the look they were going for is Bane from The Dark Knight Rises, they nailed it.
We’re not exactly sure who this product is for, but if it’s you, it’ll only set you back a cool $950.
