While the idea of farm fresh eggs might seem like a distant fantasy, it’s actually a lot more tangible than you might realize. I’m not an expert, but many municipalities allow for residents to have chickens in their backyard. And while they certainly require some care and attention, looking after a few hens isn’t as much of a chore as it might appear. If you’re still not convinced then allow Coop to change your mind. Coop is a modern smart chicken coop built specifically for the backyard. The brand wants to empower folks to be able to care for their own chickens in a thoughtfully-designed, hassle-free way. The Coop is a minimalist chicken coop that’s easy to clean and easier to manage. Features include dual cameras, a remote-controlled automatic door, lockable nesting box, and an app to control it all. Coop is currently accepting pre-orders at an early-bird price of $1,995 with orders expected to ship later this year.


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
