    Boom: “The Fastest Passenger Plane Ever”

    If you have the ability to fly from New York to London in less than half the time it takes to do it commercially now (about 7 hours), there’s really only one word you can say upon your arrival: Boom. That just makes sense intuitively, but it also fits as the name of the new […]

    Marlowe Lunchbag: The Brown Paper Sack, Upgraded

    The sack lunch is iconic thanks in part to the bittersweet tang of childhood it carries among its quaint, modest charms (along with a sandwich, apple, and juice box).

    Triton Artificial Gills for Underwater Breathing (Video)

    Breathing underwater, unless you’re Aquaman or an inhabitant of the Hanna-Barbera universe where all you need to do it is a fishbowl on your head, is a process that generally requires a lot of cumbersome scuba gear.

    ‘MondriPong': Play ‘Pong” With a Fine Art Twist

    It has been said that life imitates art, but now it can also be said that video games imitate animated GIFs, as evidenced by the genesis of MondriPong, which started as a joke but is now a real Pong riff you can actually play, if you feel like killing a few minutes with some art. […]

    Lansky AX-911 Fireman’s Battle Axe

    In a perfect world, you will never need a “battle axe” for any reason, unless of course that’s what you call your wife.
