We love small minimalist wallets. The ability to fit everything you need for a night out on the town in to a small package that fits comfortably in your front pocket can't be rated high enough. The Poquito Wood Wallet ($25) by Chris Haryono is a precision machined masterpiece that allows you to carry coins, cash or cards in a small convenient package. It's made from hand polished black walnut, white oak or black cherry (Stretch goal) and has a custom molded elastomer strap that holds everything in place. Check out Chris's kickstarter page to help make the Poquito Wood Wallet a reality. Additional pics after the break.(more…)
You remember Lytro's original camera. It looked like one of those keychain viewers you would get at the amusement park. Although it looked like a toy it held some amazing technology that allowed you to focus an image after it was processed using Lytro's special software. The Lytro Illum ($1599) builds on that tech and has new looks to boot. The Illum looks like a standard camera with a telephoto lens. The Illum features cutting edge optics, a larger sensor and a lens that is lighter, has a larger zoom range and a bigger aperture than comparable conventional cameras. You can now pre-order the Lytro Illum on their website for $1499. It will be going on sale for full retail on July 15th.
A world premiere in solar design, the Smartflower Solar System ($TBA) is the first to feature an all in one system. The beautiful sunflower shape unfurls as the sun rises in the morning, follows the sun’s movement through the sky before automatically folding its solar petals for the night. It’s not just an innovative design, it’s convenient and portable too and can be simply unplugged if you ever choose to move house, so you can just take it with you. Clever stuff.
If your a purist, when it comes to your espresso, The La Pavoni Europiccola Espresso Machine ($860) should be on your short list. The Europiccola is a manual pull espresso machine. What that means is you control the speed at which you force the water through the grounds. This method of brewing is extremely satisfying and allows you to control the strength of your espresso. The tanks holds enough water for 8 cups. A steam wand heats milk for hot chocolate and creates the foam needed for cappuccinos, and other drinks. Finished in chrome this unit will make a great addition to any kitchen.
The Paul Smith Quilted Blazer ($275) from the AW13 collection adds a little style to your fall wardrobe. The blazer is constructed with a full polyester shell and stuffed with a down blend. An additional bonus is the graphic trim on the interior which celebrates the work of New York artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. The blazer also includes a full button front closure and three front pockets.
Quite simply, the 100 Best Guy Movies - Classics has been created from my own experiences and from discussions with friends. Now with this being said this list is top heavy in three general areas.I love science fiction movies. A good sci-fi movie with a well-developed plot makes me a happy camper. I also love movies with great plot twists.A movie that has a final scene that takes you on an unexpected journey or keeps you thinking days after you've seen it can't be beat.And lastly movies with great fight scenes or shoot 'em up scenes. These just can't be gratuitous lop his head off for no reason just to show some gore type of movies, but the action must be integral to the plot and be so well shot that it leaves you speechless.If you think a movie doesn't belong, or have a suggestion to make the list better, let me know by posting a comment on our Facebook page.
