When you're sitting in your office or your family room and want to play some music why not have a pair of speakers that sound great and are visually stunning. Speakers that aren't just functional but add to your homes decor. The Edifier E25 Luna Eclipse Bluetooth Speakers ($199) are a great sounding and a great looking speaker set. The Luna connect to any Bluetooth enabled device or any system via a provided auxiliary cable. Simple touch controls located on the speaker allow you to manage the volume, change tracks and power the speakers on and off. A remote is also provided to manage volume and power. Each speaker contains a 3" full range speaker and two 3" passive bass radiators creating great bass performance. And Edifier knows its difficult to buy speakers on the internet so they offer a 30 day no-risk guarantee.
Stand out, look good and play great - what more can you ask from a shoe. Kevin Durants Nike KD VI ($130) is definitely a show stopper in the looks department but it also has some of the most up to date technology available from Nike to take your game to the next level. The thin upper uses Nikes Flywire tech and features their Nike Zoom in the front and the Max Air in the heel. With these two techs you get that lock down feeling and impact protection when driving to the hole. And if you're not digging on the colors you can use Nike's customization website to come up with your own colorway.
The big wide world of beer and brewing is explored in an engaging, funny and downright delightful way in Beer Is Proof God Loves Us ($12). Charlie Bamforth is your guide, considered by many to be the #1 expert in the world on every aspect of beer. After they held a worldwide search to find exactly the right person for the job, Anheuser-Busch installed him as their first Professor of Brewing Science at the University of California, Davis. Now he is giving us the most compelling and readable social history ever written about beer. We learn where it came from, the current position of the brewing industry and what we can expect in the future. Utterly brilliant.
When you're the Director of Design for one of the most historic car companies in the world what car from its vaulted catalog would you design for yourself? Well, Ian Callum from Jaguar decided on a recreation of the 1950's Mark 2. The Jaguar Mark 2 By Ian Callum ($NFS) maintains the cars original purity but boasts a number of aesthetic and technical modifications. Some of these include a 4.3-liter XK engine paired with a 5-speed manual transmission, independent rear suspension, and modern front brakes. While the interior includes a Clarion NZ502E multimedia station with a 6-inch screen. Here's hoping they roll this car into next years production.
The Glyph Personal Mobile Theater ($499) looks like a big set of headphones, but they're much much more. The Glyph is a mobile theater system. Using a simple HDMI input it can display anything in your library. The Glyph uses something they call a Virtual Retinal Display which utilizes one million micromirrors in each eye piece to reflect images directly to the back of the retina. The result is an image that is high def, clear, and immersive. You get none of the side effects of other near view screens like screen door effect, pixellation, nausea or disorientation. And when you're not using the screen, it flips out of the way and you just have a big set of headphones.
