Hackrod, a digital manufacturing company, imagines a future where prospective car buyers can design their own cars by leveraging VR and 3D printing. That may be a ways off, but the company does have an example of such a car. The La Bandita Speedster is the collaborative effort of Hackrod and Siemens. It’s meant to showcase the power of virtual reality, AI engineering, and 3D printing, along with how the future will allow us to create cars (and other products) like we’re playing video games. The La Bandita Speedster is printed in 5556 aluminum alloy and boasts an ergonomic cockpit that was produced in VR. While this is a proof of concept, Hackrod is allowing customers to pre-order a La Bandita through their site, if you want to be the first to taste what the future holds.

There are few watches with as storied a legacy as the G-SHOCK. Originally released in 1983, the Shock Resistant and 200M Water Resistant watch has remained relevant to this day. It just got even better with the release of the first full-metal addition to the continually evolving 2100 line. This model retains the original streamlined, minimalist design while being even more sleek, durable and feature-packed. With Tough Solar Power, Smartphone Link and Super Illuminator, it’s an analog watch built for the digital age. The G-SHOCK GBD2100 is available in silver, black IP and Bronze IP colorways, so there’s a stylish version for every occasion.
