Inspired by the IKEA idea of “affordable, well-designed products ‘for the many people,'” the Backcountry Hut Company makes turnkey housing solutions with a flat, pre-packed assembly system. In other words, you can finally build a house IKEA style. The modular, easy-to-assemble parts can be customized with different finishes and configurations in sizes ranging from Tiny House to full department getaway for 16–24 people. The basic shell consists of only nine parts (four posts, four beams and a roof) and can be built out as either the Backcountry hut for the outdoors or the Frontcountry hut for personal usage. The Backcountry setup has enough space for a community kitchen on the bottom level and bunk bed sleeping area in the loft. Frontcountry can accommodate a full-size kitchen downstairs with a large sleeping area accessible by stairs. Regardless of how big or tiny you want to build, Backcountry Hut Company structures use FSC certified lumber, 100% recyclable components and a zero-waste philosophy with minimal site imprint.

Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
