The Messograf Pen SHOP

Your average guy uses an an average pen: unremarkable and cheap. It writes, and that's the extent of its talents (maybe you occasionally use it to pensively chew on). But considering we all use a writing implement virtually every single day, it makes sense that aforementioned implement incorporates a little more into its repertoire. The Messograf pen is just that.  Actually it's "just that" and a whole lot more, incorporating a ruler, calipers, tread gauge, thread scale.... the list goes on. It also happens to be a smooth refillable ballpoint, as well as fashioned from solid metal in a handsome utilitarian shape.   It's a definite step up from a Bic, though some would make the argument writing in the dirt with a stick is a step up from a Bic. ... check it out

Ah those crazy Danish. They've come up with another great piece of design. The Libratone Speaker is completely wireless, but unlike other wireless speakers, sound quality is not sacrificed.

Lat56 RAT-PAK Garment Bag

We know, we thought the same thing too. At first glance, this is obviously one of those cases assassins flip open on a roof, pull out the parts to a high-tech rifle, assemble it, and take aim at some sap who pissed off the wrong peeps. But you'd be wrong, because LAT56's RAT-PAK Garment Bag actually holds... and this ... continue reading

Extremely well-rendered images are made in the contrasting styles of pencil sketch and vibrant abstract forms and organic ... continue reading

Pop Top Retro Bottle Opener
