Developed in collaboration with MIT-trained researchers, the Blue Bottle Coffee Dripper makes it possible for you to brew pro-quality coffee at home. The capillary-inspired design features forty inner ridges — each smaller than a drop of water — that direct and move the coffee with speed and precision. Its porcelain walls are thinner than most drippers, retaining heat while saturating more evenly, and the 4 mm nozzle enables an ideal flow from the spout to the cup. The dripper complements the rest of the Blue Bottle holiday collection, which includes cups, mugs, serveware, a travel kit, and, of course, the all-important coffee beans, including two collections available exclusively over the holidays.

Amazon is once again upgrading your life by making grocery shopping slightly less terrible. With the new Amazon Go, the e-commercer giant has created a brick and mortar store with no checkouts and no lines. Just enter with their app and grab everything you need — the app will track everything you pick up and put back. Once you're done, simply walk out and all of your items will be charged to your Amazon account. The supermarket of the future is not too far away, with the first store opening in Seattle in early 2017.
Named after its signature (and now deteriorating) tread that resembled the footprints left behind by astronauts, this 1972 Nike Moon Shoe is a rare relic. Handmade by Geoff Hollister under the direction of Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman, they were worn in that year's Olympic Trials by marathoner Bruce Mortenson, and were one of just a dozen pairs made. The nylon uppers were imported from Japan, the now-iconic Swooshes attached with fishing line, and the outsole cut, glued, and stitched by hand, making these a truly unique piece of sneaker history.
For something you use literally all day every day, the air you breathe is as important as anything else you ingest. The Awair Glow Smart Outlet lets you keep tabs on it while providing several other benefits. For starters, it serves as a stylish night light, and also has a pass-through outlet that allows devices like your air conditioner, humidifier, or fan to come on automatically once the air quality drops. It also lets you see stats for temperature, humidity, CO2 levels, airborne chemicals, and dust, and compiles them all into a simple to understand air quality score with recommendations for how to improve it.
