It's hard to believe the NB 577 silhouette has been around for twenty-five years. The shoe has seen over 130 iterations and its fair share of limited editions. Still made out of the UK based Flimby factory these kicks are truly classics. The New Balance 577 "25th Anniversary" Pack ($TBA) will come in two classic colorways. Each featuring supple suede and breathable mesh, all sitting on the must have Encap cushioned midsole. Stayed tuned to this post for future updates and release dates.
We've previously taken a look at the Ressence Type 1 and the Ressence Type 3. The company has now released its first Diving Watch, the Ressence Type 5 Diving Watch ($TBA). Ressence says their diver is completely readable underwater, regardless of viewing angle - zero mirror effect. To achieve this level of readability, all 142 components of the mechanical watch are immersed in 37. ml of oil. The oil cancels out the watches Total Internal Reflection, allowing for complete legibility no matter the angle of view.Most dive watches over engineer their cases to protect against the pressure of water depth. This results in a bulky over-sized case, and thick glass. Because liquid cannot be compressed, the oil in the Type 5 compensates for any water pressure, allowing for the use of a lightweight titanium case. The complete watch weighs a mere 87 grams.The Type 5 has no crown. It uses a proprietary case-back to set the time and for winding. With the Type 5, they've also included a locking mechanism for the locking and compression of the gasket.We'll update this post with pricing as soon as it's available.
The ZANAO Drone ($219) is small, autonomous, and developable. Zano may be the most sophisticated nano drone. It allows you to capture aerial photography and HD video all on a platform small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and smart enough to fly all by itself."A number of sensors work seamlessly together to allow the ZANO to avoid obstacles, hold its position and know where it is in conjunction with your smart device, at all times."Basically, this means that wherever you and your smartphone go, the ZANO is sure to follow. It also means that on its way it will maintain its altitude and avoid objects without user input. It also comes with a "Free Flight" mode which allows you to flight it using an on-screen joystick. The Kickstarter campaign for the ZANO is currently going on now.
Don't get your hopes up, the car pictured above is nothing more than a graphic rendering. The Bugatti Gandloff Concept, designed by Pawel Czyzewski, gets its inspiration from the 1938 Type 57 SC Atalante Coupe. Here's hoping this machine hits the showroom floor someday.

I'm digging the new Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red October ($2500) shoes by Kanye West, because the guy just goes for it. Although, it would be nice to see some of his stuff at a lower price point. These bad boys solid out in 11 minutes at the original offering and can now be had on eBay starting at about two grand. The shoes feature an all red colorway, a molded rear panel, an engineered strap and studs of various sizes throughout the shoe.
