CineSkates-Camera-Sliders

Creating high quality video without what we like to call the “Blair Witch Effect” is damn near impossible unless you have crazy expensive equipment. We love the fact that the DSLR can record HD video, but we spent enough money on the rig already that we don’t want to spend another couple thousand on a steadycam setup just to record a few films. All is not lost thanks to Kickstarter and an enterprising engineer from MIT’s Media Lab. CineSkates are essentially rollerskate wheels for a GorillaPod Focus which—when combined with said GorillaPod—create a budget friendly, incredibly cool way to get fluid HD video without any stuttering or shaking.

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.
