Rico Kersten is a Berlin-based designer with a passion for 3D and SciFi who specializes in digital art, automotive design, game design. Kersten created The Beast Hoverbike as part of international design competition A Road Trip in 2116. The rules were simple: “On Saturday, July 18th,  2116, what would be your ride?” Kersten chose to design a bike that, while being equally at home in the worlds of Star Wars or Akira, was designed to tackle everything but the surface using a radial fan propulsion system in place of the front wheel. Add in some wings, reverse thrusters and a whole lot of cool design and it’s easy to see why it won second place in the competition. It’s obviously nothing more than a conceptual flight of fancy at this point, but we’re willing to bet it would be a huge hit if it ever got made.

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.
