sounder-stand-th

We have a love/hate relationship with purchasing wooden amplifiers. We love how we can ditch wires and electricity and have a perfect product in one portable piece of wood, but we hate the feeling that we could have built the damn thing ourselves. The thing is, we’ve got DIY projects lined up for what seems like the rest of our life, so if someone out there is making a good acoustic wooden iPhone/iPad amp, we’d take a look. The Sounder Stand is crafted from 100% reclaimed wood (no trees were hurt during the making of this project . . . okay, they were, but that was long ago before they got turned into a barn or something and the other trees in their family have totally gotten over it by now) and doubles the volume of your iDevice. Unless you’re ready to break out the bandsaw, it’s a good purchase.

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.
