Runners and joggers get ready to meet your new best friend the Pebble Core ($70). Inspired by the famous and now somewhat overlooked iPod shuffle the Pebble Core uses its own 3G connection to instantly stream music from the streaming service Spotify and can connect with your headphones wirelessly through a Bluetooth connection. There’s no need to lug your phone or iPod with you when you’re on a run. It also features a built-in GPS and can sync data to fitness apps through Wi-Fi. And don’t worry about emergencies because it also has a built-in SOS function. All this is available in a stylish, secure light-weight package.
If you're looking for something original for your kitchen, then you must consider Chelsea Miller Knives ($200+). These knives aren't just cutlery, they're works of art. Originally from Norther Vermon, Chelsea relocated to Brooklyn where she now practices her craft. Each of her knives is an original, being made from horse shoe rasps and wood from her families farm. With blacksmithing and woodworking skills gained from her father she creates some incredible pieces. On her website you can order anything from cheese knives, to microplanes, and high-end kitchen knives. Take a look, you won't be disappointed.
As with previous videos that we've covered, like Biting Elbow's 'Bad Motherfucker', this video is definitely not safe for work. Die Antwoord is a South African zef rap rave crew. Zef is an African sub-culture, primarily made up of working class South Africans. The group is made up of Ninja (Waddy Jones), Yo-Landi Vi$$er and DJ Hi-Tek, who is played by multiple people in their videos. In their Ugly Boy video, along with graphic images topped with nice beats, you see cameos from Jack Black, Marilyn Manson, model Cara Delevigne, Dita Von Teese, ATL Twins, and RHCP bassist, Flea.http://youtu.be/uMK0prafzw0
The URWERK EMC ($120,000) is one of the watches that make me scratch my head. There are probably just a hand full of people around the world who will actually buy this watch and personally I'm not sure how it's possible for a watch to be worth this much money. The one thing I do know is the attention to detail and the design are simply amazing. Some of the technical details include a 43mm x 53mm crown, a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, manual winding and a 80 hours of power reserve. You can check out more pictures after the break and an in depth review here.(more…)
