MUNI is a Japanese retail change with a minimalistic aesthetic. They've now taken that ethos and unveiled a trio of mini-homes designed for those interested in right-sizing through minimalism. The result is MUJI Hut A Trio OF Minimalist Prefab Houses ($CALL). The homes are on display in a temporary exhibition, and it includes a home of cork, aluminum and one of wood.

This Boxer is an 1170cc twin that produces 110 horses and 88 foot pounds of torque at 6000 rpm. This bike was made to be customized by either using BMW's line of genuine accessories and parts or your own custom made add-ons. The nineT is expected to be available in early 2014.(more…)

The Jerry Can Hip Flask is one of the strongest flasks you'll find and easily slips in your pocket so you can take it anywhere.
