If Ikea built a bike it would probably look something like the Sandwichbike ($TBA). The Sandwichbike is the brain child of Dutch design agency, Bleijh. It's made of wood and arrives at your doorstop in a single box. With less than 50 pieces the bike is easy to put together and once completed provides a smooth and sturdy ride. Currently only pre-orders are being taken, with an expected delivery of late 2013.

So whether your an animator modeling a new super hero or capturing models for your 3D printer, this camera can handle it.

We've all been there. You hit the fairway but you still have over two hundred yards to the hole. You cleared the bend so you have a nice view of the stick, so instead of laying up you decide to go for it. If you have the Adams Tight Lies Fairway Wood ($160) in your bag you know that next shot is going to rise from the fairway like a Zenith to its target. If you don't, well you know you'll probably top it and watch it dribble down the fairway leaving you another 150 to the hole. The Adams Fairway wood, with its inverted head, reduces turf resistance while adding more power at contact. It makes contact below the ball which results in fewer dribblers, no matter how bad the lie, which makes it a must have for any bag.
A little bit ago we did a write-up on the Tile App ($25) and it was a big hit. Well we just got one in our little hands this article will review our experience with this little device.To get started lets review exactly what the Tile is. It's a small 1 3/8", well tile, that you can attach to personal items to track them if they get lost. You can either clip Tile through a key ring or use the provided adhesive. Simple enough.Getting started is simple as well. Just attach the Tile to whatever you're tracking and download the app to your Apple or Android device via their Tile App url.Once the App is installed you create an account using an email, and add the tile by pressing the 'e' on the Tile and placing it on your device.Once you're connected you can add a picture to identify your Tile, and you're good to go.I ran a quick test by having my daughter hide the Tile in the house. The App immediately noticed that it was in range and I could hear the tile making a notification sound even though It was a level below me. I was surprised at how loud the actual sound was. The fact I can hear it through the entire house is a definite bonus.So this got me thinking of all the things I've lost over the years that I could have easily found again if only I'd had a tile.
