With with the prevalence of smartphones and internet-connected computers, chess is no longer a game that requires two players sit at the same table. But while that means we can play more games, it also means less face-to-face connection. Chess Forum is New York City’s last chess shop, and it’s run by Imad Khachan, a man proud of what the chess shop offers people: the chance to connect. Lonelyleap takes you inside the shop to meet some of the regulars and, through chess, shows something the world is losing as we become more reliant on our devices.

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.
