We don’t have any information on this beast…but we’ll take two.
Sneakers will never really be “out,” but they’re back “in” in a big way right now. Suits, #menswear, Americana, casual, formal, you can pretty much get away with wearing a quality pair of sneakers to any occasion (weddings and black tie generally excluded) and still get the GQ stamp of approval. If you’re looking for just such a pair of sneakers, say hello to the re-imagining of Adidas’ 1984 Centaur, the Consortium CNTR. Available in red, navy and gray, the CNTR is the perfect blend of mesh and suede heat-sealed together instead of stitched.
Occasionally a product will pop up that makes us question the dude behind it. Sometimes we just don’t know what was going through his or her mind when they decided, “Yeah, this vodka has to be blazing hot!” That’s kinda how we feel with these chocolate gears. We have no idea why they were made, all we can say is we’re happy they were. Available in both silver and gold, they’re almost too cool to eat. Offered in different quantities (they can get pretty pricey) the size of the gears range from .25″ round up to 1.5″ round and are made with Fair Trade Organic Chocolate and just a few other ingredients. Just don’t try to build any working machines out of them because they will either melt or be eaten immediately.
With the jangling of keys on your enormous keychain, you’d probably make the world’s worst ninja. Chances are your coworkers can hear you approaching the building after you get out of your car. Besides the noise, the modern keychain is bulky, cumbersome, and in serious need of improvement. The KeyFlip is a smart little option for storing the mess of house keys you currently carry around. The aluminum or stainless steel KeyFlip holds four house/work keys and even doubles as a bottle opener (one more thing you can remove from your keychain). It’s a simple, no frills way to keep your keys in order and your jangling to a minimum.
The MeCam is a personal autonomous micro unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that would automatically follow you while avoiding obstacles, and that could shoot and stream video of you using an onboard camera. It features an ARM Cortex-A9 processor, 1 GB of built-in RAM, an SD card slot, a camera, and is Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled. With these hardware specs, the bot would then be able to take videos of you as you move around, going higher or lower at your command, and streaming video to a paired iOS or Android mobile device. So in all, it’s not a creepy device that you’re neighbors need to fear at all.
Most origami kits teach you how to make a paper flower or grasshopper, which is about as interesting as, well, origami. How about a paper-folding project with balls instead? These paper models are downloadable PDFs that you just print out and build: all your favorite late-model and classic trucks are available. No grasshoppers.
