Motion designer Christian Stangl worked over the course of a year and a half with his brother, Wolfgang, a composer, to create LUNAR, the mind-blowing short film you absolutely need to dedicate the next 10ish minutes of your life to. Dedicated “to all the people who believe in peaceful exploration of our borders,” LUNAR tells the story of the Space Race post Sputnik and Yuri Gagarin by focusing on the Apollo project and everything those brave souls accomplished while away from our Pale Blue Dot. Using the Flickr Project Apollo Archive for stills and the original NASA Audio Collection for the sound, thousands of pieces of source material were compiled into what the author describes as an “animated collage” but we consider nothing short of a brilliant masterpiece. There’s something about the way the images are compiled into this short film with the masterful audio composition behind it that makes it feel like you’re actually there instead of hundreds of thousands of miles away.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
