Nike-Fuelband

NikeFuel is not some new alternative power source for pair of pump action sneakers that will make every other person on the basketball court jealous. (Unfortunately, our efforts to get the Nike Air Pump technology revived were met with nothing more than silence.) It’s the output of the new Nike+ Fuelband, which is basically a stylish pedometer for the iPhone crowd. Everything you do on a daily basis (steps, calories burned, etc.) gets tracked by the sleek bracelet and then converted to NikeFuel. Set a goal for the day and then every bit of NikeFuel created pushes the Fuelband from red (bad) to green (goal!). Hook it up with USB or Bluetooth to track your progress, or lack thereof, through Nike+. If and when you decide you’re not really interested in a wrist mounted pedometer, it also doubles as a pretty cool watch.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
