Last summer we did a write-up on the $30,000 Ressence Type Three Watch. Ressence is about to release its little brother and it looks like they've created another masterpiece. The Ressence Type One Watch ($TBA) uses the same technology as the Type Three but it's in an updated case with some changes to the indications. The Type One also looks a bit thinner. The dial is made of spherical discs that display the hours, minutes, seconds, and days. The whole thing including the dial revolves under a sapphire crystal. The technology that sets Ressence apart from other watches is the perception that you're looking at a 2D image being projected on to the crystal. There are no hands or crown, the settings are changed and the watch wound by turning the back of the case. You can see the dial in action here.
The Acaia Coffee Brewing Scale ($129) will help you brew the best cup of coffee imaginable over and over again. A good scale will help improve your coffee making more than anything else. The Acaia scale allows you to weigh your coffee and water to provide "precision & consistency" to your coffee brewing. It features accuracy to .1 grams, a built-in stopwatch, touch sensitive buttons, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and beautiful styling. Although their Kickstarter project has ended, you can get product updates and availability from their website.
The worst is running out of juice and not being able to find your power cord. Worse than that is blaming someone else and then realizing you're the one who misplaced it. Stop all the drama with the new Griffin Powerdock 5 ($99). Specifically designed to support IOS devices with its 2.1 amp charging circuitry, the Powerdock 5 charges up to 5 devices at the same time in an elegant solution. It will also support most Kindle and Android devices, though you may experience extended charging times.
I love the Ford GT. And the 2016 Ford GT ($TBA) looks like it won't disappoint. The Newest GT just revealed at the Detroit Auto Show will come with a compliment of advancements when it starts production in 2016 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the GT's placing 1,2, and 3 in the 24 Hours Le Mans. These updates include a V6 twin-turbocharged Ford Ecoboost engine that puts out more the 600 horses, and the use of lightweight materials including carbon fiber and aluminum to improve acceleration, handling, and efficiency. Additional features include an active rear spoiler and 20" wheels that make an aggressive visual impact.
The new Ferrari 458 Speciale ($250,000) is more of everything you love. The Speciale has upped its game over the 458 Italia by taking the 4.5-liter V8 and increasing the horsepower from 562 to 597 horses. Although the torque has stayed the same the driving weight has dropped about 100 pounds to 2844 pounds. All this gives you an impressive 0-62 mph time of 3.0 seconds. Like I said more of everything you love. Check out more pics after the break.(more…)
The Adidas Originals Oregon Ultra (Cardinal/Legend Ink) ($136) are great pair of every day kicks. They feature a nice cardinal red which runs along the top of the upper and is featured on the tongue and as a netting on the midsole, as well as a dark Legend ink around the lower upper. If you want to get a pair in the states you'll have to get them from overseas for now.
