We’ve long loved Audi vehicles for their blend of performance and sophisticated good looks. One of the many people responsible for those gorgeous beasts is Jason Battersby, an exterior automotive designer for the brand. When not helping craft the next Audi, Battersby moonlights as a designer for the Galactic Empire. Yup, Battersby designed ships for Sith Lords—or at least he designed one ship for one Sith Lord. Battersby’s TIE-X is his imagining of a better TIE Fighter for Darth Vader. The designer tried to make a ship that fights into the Star Wars universe while also creating something new. With a glowing red cockpit, a pair of blasters, and a menacing look, we think he succeeded.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
