You remember the last time you were in a Science Fair and you built that crazy Rube Goldberg machine that had all kinds of cool aspects and mechanisms but ultimately did nothing? Gary Schott is kind of like that—except way more polished and with a purpose. The metalsmith creates everything from bouncing coffee cups to Eskimo kissing machines using his skills and artistic talents. It will probably make more sense if you just watch this.

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.
