    Artist Zach Jordan’s Pop Culture Portraits (Pics)

      The internet is home to a lot of aesthetically dubious representations of pop culture characters, but it’s a little bit unusual to see a professional artist devote much time to “fanart.”  Zach Jordan is the exception, as he has a whole section on fanart (that’s actually the term he uses) on his website, and […]

    Surf Sauna: Winter Surfing Made Bearable

    Technology hasn’t quite reached the point where the super-rich can control the weather. But we are getting a little bit closer, at least in one specific subculture, with the Surf Sauna. The Surf Sauna is designed specifically for people who are so obsessed with “hanging 10″ (and other surf-related phrases) that they can’t stop seeking […]

  • PhoneSoap: UV Phone Sanitizer

    PhoneSoap: UV Phone Sanitizer

    You don’t have to own a microscope to know that your cell phone is probably awash in nasty bacteria and other microbes. And cleaning them can be difficult, especially if you don’t have one of those waterproof phones. But even if you do, you can’t sanitize anything with just water, which is where PhoneSoap comes […]

  • Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Chronograph Ceragold

    Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Chronograph Ceragold

    New from the legendary watch brand Omega, it’s the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Chronograph Ceragold, a watch with a mouthful of a name and enough features and top-shelf touches to back it up. The most impressive of these features is probably the diving scale in 18-karat red gold, which gives the Ceragold technology of […]

  • Soma: Next-Generation Water Filtration

    Soma: Next-Generation Water Filtration

    Like everything else in life, there are good and bad water filtration systems. If Soma is half as good as it’s claimed to be, it leaves most other water filters in the dust (so to speak). One of the things that distinguishes Soma the most is that it’s not a one-time purchase that can get […]
