Nike-Fuelband

NikeFuel is not some new alternative power source for pair of pump action sneakers that will make every other person on the basketball court jealous. (Unfortunately, our efforts to get the Nike Air Pump technology revived were met with nothing more than silence.) It’s the output of the new Nike+ Fuelband, which is basically a stylish pedometer for the iPhone crowd. Everything you do on a daily basis (steps, calories burned, etc.) gets tracked by the sleek bracelet and then converted to NikeFuel. Set a goal for the day and then every bit of NikeFuel created pushes the Fuelband from red (bad) to green (goal!). Hook it up with USB or Bluetooth to track your progress, or lack thereof, through Nike+. If and when you decide you’re not really interested in a wrist mounted pedometer, it also doubles as a pretty cool watch.

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.
