  • G-Shock Valentine’s Day 2016 Watches

    G-Shock Valentine’s Day 2016 Watches

    Casio G-Shock watches are quite possibly the least romantic timepieces ever created.  Their bone-deep utilitarianism doesn’t have time for any flowery content, and even their names are like technical manual listings. But that hasn’t stopped Casio from getting in on the Valentine’s Day action this year, with two G-Shock Valentine’s Day 2016 joints coming next month. […]

    Valentine’s Day is only a couple week away, and a street artist by the name of Lonac is commemorating the occasion with an appropriately off-beat and very impressive work of art: A stop-motion animated mural of a realistic and operational human heart. It’s called heArtbeats. The heArtbeats animated working heart cleverly uses a couple of ducts […]

  • Lumir: Strong LED Lighting Powered by a Single Candle

    Lumir: Strong LED Lighting Powered by a Single Candle

    It sounds a little oxymornic at first: A light powered by a single candle, which itself gives off light, and indeed was invented for that very purpose centuries ago. But even though Lumir gets its power from just one lit candle, the light it gives off is much bigger, brighter, and more efficient, powered by […]

    That new Star Wars movie everybody’s jibber jabbering about has got me asking just one question: Has everyone forgotten about Boba Fett? Thankfully, the answer is no, as Ryan Flowers (he of SOG Knives and various other endeavors) is releasing a line of body armor directly inspired by the galaxy’s most awesome bounty hunter: GALAC-TAC.

    It’s a common figure of speech: “He doesn’t have enough sense to come in out of the rain.” But that nugget of wisdom ignores the fact that sometimes, you can’t come in out of the rain, not even if there are dangerous lightning strikes in your area. For those times, there’s the Bolt mobile lightning […]
