Cutting boards don’t need to be complicated: big, preferably wooden thing that you can chop on. Simple. But despite the flawless logic above, I still want this ludicrously expensive bells-and-whistles cutting station.
You know you want this badass Victorian scientist to glower at you from a corner of your desk accompanied by her massive steampunkish Analytical Engine and an oversized spanner.
Ice climbing is one of those niche sports that pushes the cutting edge of crapping yourself, and materials technology. Equipment has to be light, stiff, flexible enough for shock absorption, and cheap enough for dirtbag climbers. Sounds like a job for nature.
iFixit makes the greatest tech tool kits out there, and now they’ve updated their bestselling Pro Tech toolkit for the next generation of gadgets in your life. And it’s just beautiful. I want one.
I’ll admit I’m not much for physical calendars—it’s just plain easier to keep track of the days on my computer, where the rest of my life is. But when I saw the 2016 Anaptár calendar, my inner science nerd squeed a little. Okay, a lot. It’s hanging on my office door now, and I kinda never want to take it down.
As Men in Black taught us nearly 20 years ago, galaxies can come in all sizes. They can even disguise as tiny, wearable ornaments right under our noses. But it’s not just secret agents supervising extraterrestrial life forms who get to play God—you, too, can become the master of your own cosmic arena.
There’s nothing like a bit of minimalism to bring order to interior decoration. If you’re looking for a little low key wall candy, look no further than illustrator Sekonik. His simple line drawings of cities, gadgets, and other geek treats are just splendid.
Outer Space Vodka doesn’t actually come from outer space. It comes from Iowa, which is about as far as you can get from space without burrowing into the Earth’s core.
Chances are you’ll never plumb the depths of the Mariana Trench or explore the ruins of an ancient shipwreck. But you can hold part of geologic history in your hand with these ceramic pieces glazed with various muds collected from the deep sea, courtesy of The Soft Earth Speaks.
Some people will drink coffee out of any old ceramic receptacle. But me? I want a mug that reminds me of the power of the Dark Side every time I drink.
Bang & Olufsen will freely admit that its new BeoLab 90 speaker is ‘not for everyone’. Given that most people can’t blow $40,000 on a car, let alone speaker-systems-as-modern-art, that’s not surprising. But at least for the money, you should get a nice hi-fi.
Night biking is one of my favorite activities. But you know what’s even more fun? Not getting hit by careless drivers who fail to remember that bikers, too, sometimes have somewhere to be after dark. You’ve gotta have good lights, but taillights are passé. It’s time to step up your game. It’s time for Revolights.
Vans are definitely not the footwear of choice for people seeking a sophisticated, well-heeled look. If you wear Disney-themed Converse, that’s particularly true — but that still won’t stop me buying up every pair of these Disney Vans I can lay my childlike hands on.
When it comes to insulation, forget cotton. This fleece hoodie will shed water while staying much warmer and, with a knit face, looks much classier than you’ll feel.
I am a total sucker for bags: between duffels, suitcases, technical backpacks and messenger bags, I could probably pack up my entire life in 20-liter increments. Boreas’s new modular bag set could help me with my problem.
This sleek, space-age stainless steel take on a saber from Menu is proof that a champagne saber doesn’t need to be sharp to get the job done. It’s the impact that matters, after all, not the sharpness of the blade.
When you're a kid, corn on the cob is one of the best meals imaginable because it's really just an excuse to eat pure melted butter. But wrangling a chunk of that golden goodness onto a hot piece of corn fresh off the grill is a tricky task that's made a lot easier with this butter spreader that also happens to make…
Someone at OSHA probably has a terrifying stat about the number of workplace injuries caused by teapots. But if everyone rushes out and buys this gorgeous glass hot beverage receptacle, we can do something about this critical national issue.
Who hasn't stumbled across an episode of This Old House or New Yankee Workshop on a lazy Saturday afternoon and dreamed of being as skilled a woodworker as Norm Abram?
