Adidas SpringBlade Performance Running Shoe

Posted in : Design, Fashion

(added few years ago!)

It’s always nice to see innovation within the athletic footwear sector, and that’s exactly what the team at Adidas have done with their all new Adidas SpringBlade running shoe.They might look a bit weird at first glance (due to the blades located where the outsole would normally be), but they were created with performance in mind. The 16 individually tuned blades were built for higher energy return, helping to propel runners forward along with providing ample support during each and every one of the runner’s strides. The Adidas Innovation Team have rigorously tested the shoe, and concluded that the SpringBlade is also seven times more temperature resistant than shoes that utilize standard EVA cushioning. This technology comes at a price though, and Adidas plans on charging $180 for these kicks through their online store.

Simply apply the NeverWet Base Coat, wait about 15 minutes, then apply the NeverWet Top Coat, and within another 15 minutes you will have a fully waterproof item.

Posted in : Adventure, Technology

(added few years ago!)

With all the creative craft beers that have been hitting the scene lately, there’s no doubt in our minds that you’ll be coming home with plenty of booze filled growlers over the summer season. The bicycle Growler Cage ensures that you will easily be able to transport that jug while riding your 2 wheeler. This steel constructed cage easily mounts to your bike with the included brackets, and replaces the same slot your water bottle cage would normally occupy. Each cage has been powder coated to keep the corrosion away, and different color neoprene sheaths provide a soft contact surface, ensuring the 64 ounce jug will be safe even when you hit the trails.

Fujifilm X-M1 Camera

Posted in : Technology

(added few years ago!)

Although we love our DSLR to death, there are certain situations where it’s just too bulky and inconvenient to bring along. That doesn’t mean you should have to sacrifice the quality of your photos though. The Fujifilm X-M1 Camera packs the technology we crave from a DSLR, but is portable like a point-and-shoot.
These cameras were originally teased last week, and now we unveil them in all their glory. Weighing less than a single pound, the XM-1 camera is perfect for people that are always on the go, but as we said before you won’t be giving up quality for compact size. Compatible with most Fujifilm lenses, the shooter is equipped with a 16 megapixel X-trans sensor, tilting 3″ LCD screen, and built in Wi-Fi connectivity for wireless photo transfers. This camera is set to be released on July 29th, and will be available for purchase on Amazon.

Ducati Diavel Dark Motorcycle

Posted in : Vehicles

(added few years ago!)

Last year Italian bike maker Ducati proved that chrome could still be sophisticated with their Diavel Cromo, and this year the brand is rolling out a more subtle offering in the Ducati Diavel Dark motorcycle. The Dark version sees nearly everything that was chrome or glossy in the past sporting a sleek black finish. The bike is equipped with a Testastretta 11° engine pumping out a monstrous 162 horsepower and 94 lb-ft of torque.  The motorcycle still features Ride-by-Wire technology, Brembo brakes, and a massive rear Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tire. Expect to spend just under $18,000 if you’re looking to park one of these in your garage.

Carbon Fiber Vessel Hammock Bathtub by Splinter Works

Posted in : Adventure, Design

(added few years ago!)

As if the thought of a hammock bath tub wasn’t cool enough, the design team at Splinter Works decided to design and build a hammock inspired tub crafted from carbon fiber. Dubbed the Carbon Fiber Vessel Bathtub, the tub is the perfect way to unwind after a long day. In its standard form, the Vessel measures in at 2.7 meters long (a bit longer than a normal bathtub), but it can also be completely customized to your space. The tub mounts between two walls, features a hole in the bottom for water drainage, and is available in a handful of colors including blue, red, bronze, pure silver, yellow, and even pink in addition to the black seen in the photos. The tub has been equipped with a foam core for insulation, which allows the tub to stay warmer longer than a typical tub. The limited edition bathtub has no price listed on the brand’s website, but you better believe that this thing will be expensive.

1943 Volkswagen Schwimmwagen

Posted in : Vehicles

(added few years ago!)

Used quite extensively by the Germans during World War II, the Volkswagen Schwimmwagen is one of the most sought after vehicles among VW enthusiasts.An amphibious four-wheel drive off road machine, the Schwimmwagen is not only badass, it is extremely rare. Earlier this week a pristine 1943 Volkswagen Schwimmwagen became available for sale through OldBug, and this thing is a gem to say the least. The completely restored vehicle is sporting all of the authentic props from the 1940s including rifles, shovel, side mounted oar, and even has a machine gun mounted to the hood as well (non-operational of course).  The vehicle is equipped with a fully rebuilt 25 horsepower engine, and is ready to hit the lake for the summer season. There’s just one problem though. This genuine 1943 will cost you a pretty penny… $150,000

Romain Jerome Moon Orbiter Watch

Posted in : Amazing, Design, Fashion, Watches

(added few years ago!)

Romain Jerome has become quite known over the years for his beautifully crafted timepieces, and the Moon Orbiter is yet another stunning wrist watch we can add to the list. As with all of his watches, the name of the watch gives you some inclination as to what materials were chosen for the build process. The Moon Orbiter has been crafted from steel that was sourced from the Apollo 11 Spacecraft along with genuine moon dust. As part of the Moon-DNA collection, the Orbiter will be extremely limited, with only 25 units being produced. Don’t expect this thing to come cheap either. The timepiece will hit the retail scene with a price tag of $115,000.
