We never thought we’d say this about external hard drives, but LaCie does a pretty good job making their devices look less like tech accessories and more like works of art. Their new LaCie Mirror is encased in Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to make it durable, scratch resistant and very, very shiny. The drive uses a single USB 3.0 cable for both power and data, so you don’t need to carry an extra cable when you put it in the included soft carrying case to take it on the go. It also includes an ebony wood display stand because if you’re going to spend close to $300 on 1TB of storage, you’re going to want it on display. You could, in theory, also use it to check yourself out before that important video chat. The entire package was designed by Pauline Deltour in Paris and will be available for purchase at the end of the month.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
