First-Look-at-the-SpaceX-Spacesuit

Elon Musk’s visions are always of the grand variety. While this leaves many questioning whether or not he can pull these ideas off, we like to just sit back and enjoy the fun-as-hell drip of information. That’s because we get things like what was posted yesterday on Musk’s Instagram. This is your first look at the SpaceX spacesuit—and it’s perfect. Eschewing bulkiness in favor of a trim and tailored look, the body of the spacesuit looks at least somewhat related to standard clothing. Decked out in black and white, it wouldn’t look out of place on someone riding a ninja bike. It’s finished with a helmet that blends stylistic notes from Interstellar with a Daft Punk concert. Musk claims the suit was tested to double vacuum pressure, so this is more than just the mock-up from some design student. No idea when SpaceX will send someone clad in one of these into space, but we’ll enjoy the build up until they do.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
