Its slightly-less-complicated, brick-based older brother might get most of the LEGO love, but the Technic line of LEGOs opens up a whole new world of possibilities filled with differentials, pulleys, electric motors, suspensions, linkages and complex gearing systems. Those types of component parts become essential when expert Technic builders are creating things like supercars, construction equipment, monster trucks and watercraft. Those creations are the focus of Incredible LEGO Technic, Pawel “Sariel” Kmiec’s compendium of the world’s best fan-created LEGO Technic models. In addition to all of the cool models, the book includes design notes and breakaway views of all of the mechanisms contained within. It’s plastic engineering at its finest.

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.
