    RokBlok: A Portable Record Player Like No Other

    The phrase “portable record player” is generally one that should be taken with the proverbial grain of salt, given the inherent size and number of moving parts necessary to play a record in the first place, let alone with any vestige of sound quality.

    BoardUp: “The World’s First Self-Folding Longboard”

    The first self-folding longboard in the world is now in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Not to be confused with “Bird Up,” the worst show on television, it’s BoardUp, a longboard that circumvents many of the issues associated with lugging such boards around by way of an ingenious self-folding hinge in the middle.

  • Lexdray Portland Sneaker Duffel

    Lexdray Portland Sneaker Duffel

    The modern sneakerhead on the go, regrettably, does not have a ton of options for lugging multiple pairs of sneakers from one place to another.

  • Ever Tires: Bike Tires That Won’t Go Flat for 5000 Miles

    Ever Tires: Bike Tires That Won’t Go Flat for 5000 Miles

    If you believe certain conspiracy theorists on the subject, the tire industry has had access to a no-flat tire model for decades, keeping it from the public for the obvious reason that people with tires that don’t go flat never have to buy new tires. Now, it seems, a group of freedom fighters behind the […]
