    If someone told you they could get you an “Apple Watch,” you’d probably get pretty psyched about the upcoming Apple smartwatch set to come out later this year.

    LEFF Tube Audio: Speakers Built to Sound and Look Great

    The sweet spot for any home audio equipment is the intersection between not just sounding good but looking good too.  No amount of quality audio is worth having to look at a speaker that doubles as an eyesore every time you wake up in the morning.

    Ricoh NV-10A Enhanced Binoculars: Everything But X-Ray Vision

    You don’t really see too much from binoculars anymore. I guess it’s because they’re one of the many analog devices to see their demand dwindle in the new digital age.
