When it comes to music boxes, few are as intricate — or expensive — as the MB&F x Hodinkee MusicMachine 2. Plainly drawing inspiration from Star Trek's USS Enterprise, this limited-edition box is clad in untreated, gunmetal-colored aluminum, with two 3.72 movements that rotate in opposite directions. On the right cylinder, you'll find snippets from "Another Brick in the Wall" and "Smoke on the Water", while on the left, there are snippets from both "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" main titles, suggesting that whoever came up with this idea had his market pegged as "the affluent stoner geek."
In case you didn't know it, there's a direct correlation between the visibility of a motorcyclist's helmet and their safety. Now you can give yourself a boost in both safety and aesthetics with Lightmode Motorcycle Helmets. Available as either a permanent modification kit for your current helmet or a new helmet in fully modified form, Lightmode adds glowing EL components onto the outside of the helmet using a combination of super-strong glue and chemical accelerator. You control things via a box that clamps onto the helmet between the shell and padding, runs on 2 AA batteries, and gives you three modes: a Tron-like constant glow, a blink setting, and off. It's far cooler than riding around in a reflective orange vest.
Ever see those awesome time-lapse videos of someone flying across the world, traveling through a foreign country, or just walking around the local music festival? Now you can make your own with Hyperlapse. This new app from Instagram lets you shoot time lapse videos that are instantly stabilized to smooth out bumps and other jarring motions, and are played back at up to 12 times the speed you shot it, allowing you to show a day's worth of action in just 30 seconds or less.
Here comes another great example of a Belgian Saison that you'd think comes from Belgium, but it's actually an Ohio product. Petite Saison from Rockmill Brewery in Lancaster, Ohio not only fits the bill of a high quality Belgian style Saison, complete with a yeasty malt flavor with some citrus influences, but also comes packaged in this great looking 375ml bottle, caged and corked. Serve it blind to a hardcore Belgian beer snob and see if they can tell you where it's from.
