You know I’m a huge fan of Nooka, purveyor of the most unique watches you can decorate your wrist with, but all their timepieces were digital, until now. The NOOKRONO is their first chronograph and true to Nooka form, it’s eye catching and minimalistic while retaining a sexy level of futurism.
The movement is neither Swiss or Japanese. Nooka has taken all aspects of engineering in-house. Not an easy task but their attention to detail and craftsmanship is reassuring. All hands will move smoothly around that beautiful face. I personally love the NOOKRONO MULTI (blue and orange) and the NOOKRONO NIGHT (black with stainless steel band).
So how do you get one? It’s already reach its funding goal on Indiegogo eclipsing its original 10k goal 6x. With 30 days left on the “clock” (bad pun I know), that means you still have time to get yours and lock in the special price. This is not a paid advertisement. I’m just a fan who loves the design. I don’t even wear watches but I’ll wear the hell out of these.
And if you’re wondering when you’ll get them – Decemberish 2014… what a nice holiday gift!

There’s no such thing as too much safety when it comes to motorcycling and riders will readily welcome any additional layer of protection, especially if it compliments their bada$$ biker look! The MEDA is an ingenious addition to any rider’s regular gear that gives them extra visibility to other drivers by using integrated lights that work in tandem with the motorcycle’s existing breaking and turn signal system. The backpack is so lightweight and ergonomic that riders will even want to use it when they’re not carrying cargo. See it in action —->

I am training hard and on a mission to knock off some excess weight, so I totally understand the need to eat the right food at the right time. According to my trainer, the timing of our meals should be set, which is why the FuelME concept is apt for us. It is a customizable and sustainable meal box that features room for utensils, snacks and supplements. One can carry three to six meals at a time and the food remains fresh as ever.

Olga Kalugina’s JIM lamp combines Apple-style minimalism with ultra-thin OLED lighting to achieve a modern, simplistic aesthetic that’s complimentary of your other devices! Lightweight yet rigid, the light source elegantly curves upward from the unibody base, keeping the direction OLED at a convenient and comfortable working angle. The only downside: its profile is so thin you might think it disappeared altogether!

Because no two terrain types are the same, the eV (named for its V-shaped frame) offers those with paraplegia versatile driving modes for tackling different surfaces or simply for different driving experiences. The design is driven by two in-wheel electric hub motors and features an extendable, adapting subframe. Completely operable with dual hand controls, users have the ability to not only dictate direction but switch between indoor and sport modes all at their fingertips. See the prototype in action —>
