Taking drinking and driving to healthy levels, Nespresso has partnered with Vélosophy to create a bike made from aluminum Nespresso pods that also comes with its own beverage holder basket for caffeinated imbibing on the go. The brilliantly named RE:CYCLE is a limited-production version of Vélosophy’s own classic bike but clad in the Nespresso Arpeggio blend’s bright purple hue. The bike project was meant to highlight aluminum’s remarkable recyclability and versatility. The bike frame is 6061 aluminum directly from Nespresso capsules, and the Shimano components ensure easy 5-speed shifting and stopping with strong disc brakes. Big whitewall tires were selected for comfortable city touring, and the front and rear fenders will keep you clean when the riding gets a bit dirty. The bike gets topped off with fine Brooks Cambium seating and grips, and the finishing touch is a wooden basket with loops for your hot cuppa joe. Only 1,000 bikes will be made.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
