If you don't have a projector in your house get one! I have one in my office and I will be adding another to my basement after the remodel. I only buy Epson primarily for their service and return policy. The Epson 5020 has some pretty impressive specs. 320,000:1 contract ratio. 2400 Lumens, which makes it basically a light canon. Horizontal and Vertical Lens shift and 5,000 hours of lamp life. And of course 3D. There is also a 5020e version which has wireless HDMI, which is nice if your concerned about running cable. If you cant afford the $2599.00 price tag check around to see if you can find an 8700UB. All its missing is the 3D.
The making of Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon's Classified Moto Motorcycle ($NFS): If you're a fan of The Walking Dead, then you know in the latest episode the gang is holed up in their latest safe haven, Alexandria, and Daryl just got a new bike.Now if you're into the custom bike scene and watched the show, the first thing you would have noticed were the gold forks on the bike and you might have thought they looked real familiar.Well it just so happens that Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), has a Classified in the garage and when the show asked him if he had any ideas about his new bike he went straight to John Rylan of Classified Moto. And the rest is historyNorman painted of picture of Daryl's character and where they were in the story, the Executive Producer and Prop Master filled in the rest and John took over from there.They needed to build two bikes and started with a pair of 750cc Hondas from the '90s. If you watch the show you know they needed to make the bikes look like they were put together from different lots and different models.They gave them sportbike front ends, and painted the engine components to look like they were made from a hodge podge of components.Additional updates included knobby dirt-bike tires, upgraded rear suspension, and a pair of $1000 Progressive shocks.By getting rid of unnecessary components, John and the team were able to fill the void they left with an ancient military canvas bag that Daryl uses in the show.John R. says,"The process was a designer’s dream — an unbelievable assignment and a client with a shared aesthetic sense. Two thumbs up."

Navdy ($300) is a portable heads-up display you put on your dashboard. It projects an image on a transparent screen in your field of view. The image looks like its 6 feet in front of you so you never have to take your focus off of the road. the Navdy connects to either Android or IOS phones and it comes with its own apps as well. One of the really cool things is that you don't have to pick up your phone to control the device. Navdy can be controlled by hand gestures and your voice. So a swipe left can answer a call or a swipe right can ignore.
Everything I put on Muted I would love to have for my own. But I would really love to pick up one of these guys. The Radinn Electric Powered Wake Board ($TBA) lets you surf without having to catch a wave. The board is controlled by a wireless handcontroller that governs an on board jet-propulsion system. And because it's made from carbon fiber that houses a low mass lithium battery they were able to make it small and light enough that you can take it anywhere. Right now they're building previous orders so get in touch if you're looking to get on the list for future runs.
