When we first told you about the Mover & Shaker pens from Tactile Turn, we told you they were built for writing on the go. That still holds true. The click mechanism is still buttery smooth. They still look great. But that didn't stop the people at Tactile Turn from releasing a slightly tweaked version of both ... continue reading
Between the Architecture sets and pop culture collaborations (Star Wars Death Star anyone?), LEGO has been killing it the past few years.

Brooks has been making some of the best bicycle saddles in the world since before any of you reading this even knew how to ride a bike. Actually, since we're talking about a century and a half, they've been doing it since about the time your great-great-great-grandfather was teaching people to ride bikes. The point ... continue reading
Electrophoretic ink, E Ink, is one of those technologies born of the MIT Media Lab that never really saw that commercial application. What used to almost exclusively be the realm of Kindles, Nooks and Kobo e-readers is going to get a whole lot more interesting in September when Twelve24 makes their ClockONE available ... continue reading
Prometheus Design Werx has created their first one piece tool, and the footprint of the tool is one you're already familiar with.

There's a "universal" closed end ... continue reading
Hemp has been the "next big thing" in manufacturing since puka shell necklaces were still this season's must have accessory.

The geniuses at NudeAudio gave their new Super-M Bluetooth Speaker to producer Hugh Padgham for blind testing.

Leave it to VICE to uncover the most epic boxing match we've seen since Rocky faced off against Apollo Creed. Except this is real, bare-knuckle boxing and it's far more violent than an HBO show or anything we've seen from UFC in quite some time. When you have half an hour, you need to watch this.
If you ride your bike more than once a week, and you don't live in the desert, you've probably been caught in a downpour at least once.

Each Saddle Packable Jacket is Made in Italy of ... continue reading

Unfortunately, those cool peg boards don't really stand the test ... continue reading
Figuring out the current time in a location other than your own has never been easier. With smartphones, apps and hundreds of time conversion websites, you'll never have to do time zone math in your head ever again. So why do you need a clock?
