Incredible ride in a Fountain 47

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to join some nice people on a trip with a Fountain 47 with 3x1350 Hp. It was the fastest boat trip I’ve ever done. I’ve posted two videos from the crazy trip below.

Ride in a Fountain 47 around Stockholm archipelago with and without music and some minor edits.

Both videos are quite long so if you're bored you can use them as your screen saver. Anyways, this was too good not to show here as well and I guess some people would like to see Stockholm archipelago from a fast boat. Some parts of the trip was as fast as 107 knots.

We drove from Djurgården (Stockholm) to Sandhamn in around 20 minutes, a regular trip takes a couple of hours. Make sure to watch the video in full screen.

Here are two outtakes from the long youtube versions below: Video 1 and Video 2

I do not own the rights to the music in this video. If you as an artists or label have seen content of your on this video and would like it removed. Please do not hesitate to contact me for removal.

The DRÖM series

The series DRÖM has finally had it’s premiere on SVT and it’s really nice to see the hard work being up on screens around Scandinavia. The two part series was shot in Gotland, Sweden during the summer of 2018. Dröm is produced by SVT and Palladium Fiction.

During the filming we had some pictures taken which you can see below.

Developing and investing in Intangible assets

Nowadays we see many examples of how IPs (intangible assets; simplified, assets that can not be "touched") increase in value and how you, as the owner, can manage, buy and sell different types of IPs. A clear example that we all encounter next to every day is movies and books that often change owners and develop into other products. We have also seen how mobile games like Angry Birds can evolve into movies, books, etc. Many who are not familiar with the industry of movies, books and games, or who have not been particularly involved in intellectual property, might not know that the rights of every movie and ideas, like books and games, are owned by someone. As in the case of many films today, companies or individuals often own the rights to these and the value of the brand or idea can be sold or in other ways earn money. This can be valuable, especially if you have an idea or intangible asset that is unique, popular or may have sold well in the past or as another product.

why focus on IP?

One of the most common reasons why you choose to make movies of a game or book is almost exclusively for economic gain. Many times you see a greater value in expanding an IP's market than writing a new book or developing the next game. A new product under the same IP will often reach a new audience or otherwise exploit it's already established customer base to boost its revenue from an already existing product. One example is the books you make a movie of, the book sells the movie but the movie also sells the book to those who did not read it. Another strong advantage of intangible assets is that you can collaborate with companies in other industries to take their IP into a new market without having to invest resources in development and production costs of a new product. A clear example is Angry Birds whose owner made stuffed animals to further capitalize on Angry Birds and the movie they released during the same period.

A brand can therefore be incredibly valuable. Look at Star Wars who Disney owns or why not Swedish examples such as, "The man called Ove" or "Men who hate women. A perfect example on an IP is Valerian, a movie I wrote about some time ago. The horizon has become much broader and today you can see opportunities where you would not otherwise think that a brand or IP could fit, much thanks to great successes like the ones above. This has in turn increased the understanding and importance of protecting intangible assets. You should never underestimate the value of your intangible assets and take a day or two to figure out how to protect and use them to your advantage. I am convinced that we will see a greater willingness in expanding and protecting IPs in the future and that can only be good.

Koenigsegg Agera RS

I spent a couple of days in California with my friend Niklas Lilja who is the driver and record holder of the fastest driver of a production car, Koenigsegg Agera RS. This is the Koenigsegg Agera RS "Thor" at the OC Festival of Speed at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. In the video you’ll join the passenger in two casual laps. This was an event to benefit Special Olympics Southern California which provides year-round sports training and competition opportunities to children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

The car was close to hitting 200mph at the end of the straight. A pretty remarkable machine don’t you think?

You can buy one here.

Below are a few pictures. I should post more often but don’t find the time. Anywas, here are a few and for more frequent updates, be sure to follow me on Instagram - @danielbramme.

The launch of Spacex - Falcon Heavy

So the Falcon Heavy launch was a success today and with that a commercially viable system for space exploration has been launched as well. This is a great feat and a big step towards a more economic space launch system than before. In the long run, this will make space exploration  a bit more environmentally friendly and that is a nice addition as well.

The reason to why this is a such a big step forward towards space tourism and potential colonization of the moon and maybe Mars is because of the many applications a system like this will have. The main reason is because it has the potential to be cheaper for the customer to use but it is also an investment with a potentially huge payback for Spacex. Imagine having to buy a new car after each costumer as an Uber driver, even if you got enough money per trip to sustain that business it would not be a viable option for your clients (or you). The only reason to why space tourism and satellite launches are so expensive is simply because there has not been any way to re-use a rocket (except for the Space Shuttle that was decommissioned in July 21, 2011) and this has now changed. You can read more about the possibilities this gives space exploration on Spacex.com.

I wrote a post about Spacex in 2017 about the potential they have and how they work with re-usability. One thing I would love to see in the future is to have people not usually interested in space exploration or space in general to acknowledge and getting more interested in the incredible work behind these rockets. We might not see this now but this launch is one small but important step for future science in medicine, environment, economy and overall stability in the world.

Thanks for your time.
