Acton, a Mountain View based transportation company, just released a new electric longboard that’s anything but traditional. Most electric boards combine existing decks and styles with added electronics for power, but the Acton Blink Qu4tro Electric Longboard was built from the ground up to be one of the most advanced electric skateboards on Earth. Four separate hub motors. Carbon fiber deck. Aircraft grade aluminum chassis. Lights on the front and tail with integrated LED strip. Ergonomic remote and app control. Twenty-two mile range. And it all only weighs 17 pounds. Oh yeah, and it’s capable of taking hills with up to a 30% incline. That means you can ride this eBoard to and from work on the famous Lombard Street in San Fran, uphill, both ways, without issue. It might be the perfect way to commute.

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.
