Photos can be a good motivator when working to improve your fitness — but you still need to check with a scale every so often. The Naked 3D Fitness Tracker combines these two in a powerful way, using Intel RealSense 3D Depth Sensors and a turntable scale to create a custom 3D model of your body while it also measures your body fat percentage and weight. As you progress, the companion app will show you a heat map with areas of significant change highlighted in a different color so you can see where you're adding muscle or losing fat. Whether you're a weekend warrior or a serious bodybuilder, it's a powerful tool.
Designed around a couple's love for automobiles, the Garage Terrace House is a car enthusiasts dream. A wall of floor to ceiling windows keep the owner's pride and joy on display from the adjacent kitchen and living area, while the continuation of concrete flooring makes the garage feel one with the interior. Raised timber ceilings and the use of natural light expand the modest 1800-square-foot space. When extra room is needed, your ride could be, dare we say it, parked outside and the garage can be converted into a covered terrace.
By now, you should know that a jacket that fits you is a much better look than something that you grabbed off a rack. This Seamless Jacket from Ministry of Supply fits your frame thanks to 3D modeling. That means it's constructed around a model in computer-animated design, resulting in an exact replica of the human shape. Every detail is taken into account, from the ventilation patterns to how and where the lapel folds. The knit enables maximum stretch in all directions while providing seamless ventilation at the underarms. It fits like no jacket you've had before, while maintaining your need for comfort and everyday movement.
We've had globes of the Earth for ages. It's time our only natural satellite got its due. The Moon Lunar Globe is a truly accurate 1/20 million replica of the Moon featuring every detail — craters, hills, and ridges — in full 3D, created using topographic data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. All that detail does no good if you can't see it, so it has a ring of LED lights that spin around it, illuminating the correct side of the moon, recreating the lunar phases as seen from Earth, and putting every impressive detail into sharp relief. Also available without the lights, and as a larger, 1/11.5 million scale globe.
Babolat's Play connected tennis rackets have been on the market for a while now, but that means little if you're hitting a different brand of racket. The Babolat Pop lets you keep track of your game simply by swapping it with the wristband you're already wearing. Its tiny, lightweight sensor keeps tabs on your shot types, swing speed, spin and style, all of which get combined into something the company calls a PIQ score, as well as your court time and number of shots. As you'd expect, it syncs with a companion app so you can compare scores against friends and friendly foes across the world, and is compatible with any brand of racket.
Although it may look like something straight out of Egypt, the Pyramid House is anything but ancient. Architect Juan Carlos Ramos used the clean lines and sharp angles of the classic geometric shape to his advantage to create a unconventional yet modern concept. Dispersed throughout multiple levels, a library, kitchen, two bedrooms, and a garage asend inside the peak to keep the interior open. A triangular window covers one entire side of the home, creating the dramatic component you'd expect from a pyramid-shaped house.
No, Facebook isn't suddenly getting into the electronics business. It's just giving it a boost. The Facebook Surround 360 Camera is an "open" 360-degree, 3D-capable video production system that uses specialized stitching technology to weave the output of its 17 cameras together into one VR-ready stream, letting producers focus on the thing that's most important — the content. Expect to see it on Github later this summer, where anyone can take the plans, build their own, or offer up improvements.
As temperatures slowly rise, the pull towards the great outdoors gets stronger and stronger. But this year, instead of dragging that old, beat up lawn chair to every get-together, consider the ultra-light and comfortable Kaisr Inflatable Air Lounge. It's easy to setup and makes any surface comfortable, from the beach to the park to the pool, the Kaisr Air Lounge is your ticket to rest and relaxation. It's also equipped with pockets for your e-reader, smartphone, bottles or cans, and even a bottle opener. It deflates within seconds and is stored in a small pouch that's easy to take with you wherever your adventures take you.
Drawing on the term for bob-tailing a motorcycle, the Savage Bobber Airplane brings a high amount of customization to the air. Much like a one-off bike, each plane is customized to fit its owner, with a huge number of options available, including the color of the engine and open fuselage, type of luggage holder, style of seat, propeller, engine add-ons, types of instrument panels, and more. It's based on the Savage Classic, so you know it's reliable, and no matter which options you choose, it'll be powered by a Rotax engine, and include 10 hours of ground school plus five flight hours with the company's factory trained CFIs.
Inspired by the celestial objects found by French astronomer Charles Messier, Nova Ties let you add a touch of sci-fi to an otherwise formal look. It was the clusters M4, M17, and M108, specifically, that artist Kev Nemelka looked to as models, using different mixtures of paint and chemicals to recreate these far-off formations. Limited to just 39 ties, each one is unique, and measures 2.4" at its widest point.
When it first launched, the Kindle was a luxury item. Over time, they've become more and more affordable. The Amazon Kindle Oasis brings things full circle. This flagship e-Reader has a tapered design that places most of the bulk — if you want to call it that; it's 20% lighter and 30% thinner than any other Kindle — near the palm of your hand, much like a folded-over paperback. The design also makes room for the dedicated page turn buttons, the 300 ppi screen with 10 LED backlights, and the connector for the included charging cover that boosts its battery life from mere weeks to months.
The Tesla Model S was already a great vehicle, so there was little reason to give it a full overhaul. That said, the 2017 Tesla Model S does offer several notable improvements over prior models. Most obvious is the switch from the more traditional front end to one seemingly borrowed from the Model X, with no grille and a sliver of black in the center. Also on board is the Bioweapon Defense Mode HEPA air filtration system from the X, full LED adaptive headlights, updated seats, an upgraded charger, and two new wood decor options. And unlike most refreshes, the new models are available starting today.
Not all air is created equal and neither are all air purifiers. While the majority are wasting time and energy cleaning an entire room, the Sprimo Personal Air Purifier uses high-tech sensors to detect the crappiness of the air around you and then spew out a mountain-fresh breeze right to your nose. The super-quiet fan won't interfere with your productivity or procrastination and can be controlled by your phone via an app. Weighing in at just over seven pounds, crisp air can be available whether you're at your desk, laying in bed, or on the couch binge watching House of Cards.
Take control of all your music across your entire home with the Nativ Music System. At the heart of the system is the Nativ Vita, a standalone music player that can access songs from built-in storage, Apple Music, Spotify, and most other streaming services, or from your local network, and let you browse them easily with its 11.6-inch touchscreen. It delivers bit-perfect audio to connected equipment, supports playback of DSD, DXD, and PCM audio files, lets you stream music videos to your TV over HDMI or Google Cast, and has a dedicated output stage to remove noise and jitter from the signal. It's made by hand from high-grade aluminum, Asahi glass, and solid American Oak or Walnut, and performs even better with the company's matching Wave DAC and Pulse power supply.
You won't be using it to film your kid's next tee-ball game. But if you find yourself working on a film or hit TV show, the Lytro Cinema Camera needs to be on your radar. Using the company's innovative Light Field technology, it captures not just images, but the position of each object in the scene in 3D space. As a result, you can adjust both the focus point and depth of field in post, change shutter angles and frame rates after the fact, and ditch the green screen for good. Of course, it takes a lot of data to make this all possible — up to 400 gigabytes per second — so the camera comes with its own dedicated server and processing unit.
Combining a reusable filter with a sleek design, the Bodum Pour Over Coffee Maker is a solid addition to your morning routine. The permanent stainless steel mesh filter sits up top, allowing essential oils through for a more flavorful drink, while the bottom carafe is made from mouth-blown borosilicate glass and has a rubber strip at the top to protect your hands when pouring. It makes up to eight cups at a time and is available in black, white, red, or green.
The Audi A8 L is already a large vehicle. The Audi A8 L Extended is much larger. In development for nearly a year, it's 20.9 feet long with a wheelbase that's 3.6 feet longer than the L, and uses its extra room to make space for two more doors and two more seats. The result is a car that comfortably seats six adults while offering all the luxury and tech touches you'd expect. It's powered by a 3.0 TFSI engine putting out 310 hp, moves from 0-60 in seven seconds, and has Quattro all-wheel drive. All that car takes some serious stopping power, so it borrows the brakes from the sporty S8, and it also has extra tubes and cross braces to help maintain its rigidity. Supposedly a one-off build, the company is already received inquiries into building more — but no word on whether it actually will.
Inspired by the cutters used to halve cigars over a century ago, the Dedicato A David Tabletop Cigar Cutter is a useful throwback to a simpler time. Its sharp stainless steel blade is ideal for slicing through wrappers and leaves, and the 20mm hole will accommodate most cigars. It comes attached to a wooden base and has a handsome ox horn handle.
Get all the joy of instant prints with the features you expect from a modern product with the Impossible I-1 Instant Camera. A reimagining of Polaroid's classic cameras, the camera body itself is extremely simple, providing only rudimentary control. But with a companion app, you can do things like adjust aperture and shutter speed, select a pre-set for effects like light painting and double exposures, control the flash, and remotely trigger the shutter. And since it uses they company's type 600 film, the results look just like the ones that come out of your vintage Polaroid — only better.
Almost every brewery has a coffee infused beer in their lineup. But no-one does coffee in beer better than Founders Brewing. Sumatra Mountain Brown Ale is the latest to be bottled and joins the already stacked Founders lineup. It's an Imperial Brown Ale made using caramel, flaked barley, and chocolate malt. Add in the rich, Sumatra coffee and you've got a 9% ABV beer that's the third release in Founders specialty lineup for 2016.
Converted from a workshop in the Netherlands, the Loft Sixty-Four uses a series of voids to give the narrow dwelling a spacious quality. Openings in the walls and floors allow occupants to flow freely throughout the interior, creating the sense one large room. The roof of the 65-foot building has been opened up to allow sunlight in, while a series of gaps in the second story illuminate the ground floor. The kitchen, bedroom, and bathrooms are all housed in a two-story timber structure at the center of the home, keeping intimate spaces private and obstacles to a minimum.
Designed by Marcello Gandini of Lamborghini Miura fame and presented as Italy's design contribution for Expo 67, the 1971 Alfa Romeo Montreal shares a bond with the more famous raging bull while forming an identity all its own. This particular example was built during the prototype period after 1970, but is blessed with the V8 racing engine from the Tipo 33 instead of the 4-cylinder of the original concept. It's blue body is in great shape, with none of the telltale corrosion the model is known for, and contrasts well with the beige leather interior. It has roughly 94,000 km on the odometer and will be auctioned off in Berlin.
Snorkeling is a great way to explore the sea without needing scuba gear. But it also keeps you tethered to the surface, and forces you to breathe through your mouth only — something that's easy to forget. The H2O Ninja Snorkel Mask overcomes these limitations with a face-covering design that lets you breathe normally underwater. A clear cover lets you see around you without obstructions, and the optional GoPro mount lets you capture your aquatic adventures while leaving your hands free.
Given its name, you'd expect the Explora Patagonia Hotel to give you both a stay and an education on the surrounding lands. And this all-exclusive getaway doesn't disappoint. In addition to its 49 rooms, including six suites, the hotel offers over 50 different guided hikes and horseback rides for every level of experience, letting you explore both the Torres del Paine National Park and Lake Pehoé. To keep you properly fueled up, every dish they serve is designed to give you plenty of energy while warding off sluggishness, and is paired with a standout local wine. Should you feel the need to indulge, there's also the Explorer's Bar, as well as an on-site spa with a heated, covered pool, sauna, massage room, and four open-air jacuzzis for when it's time to relax and reflect.
Minnesota is the largest producer of sugar beets in the United States. And sugar beets are the main ingredient in BET Vodka. Produced by two local friends with a shared interest in farm cooperatives and sipping vodka, BET Vodka uses the hearts of sugar beets that are distilled down to their essence and then crafted into this premium-pour vodka. Mix it in your favorite vodka cocktail or sip it neat for a pure representation of this unique spirit.
Developed specifically with fishermen and hunters in mind, the Suunto Traverse Alpha Watch will make a worthy companion on your next outing. The battery can run for up to 100 hours while using the integrated GPS with breadcrumbs, which, combined with the electronic compass and altimeter, make it easy to keep track of your whereabouts. There's a moon phase calendar to let you know when to put in your line, a barometric tracker to warn you of weather changes, and automatic shot detection to let you know where and when each one took place. Its red backlight won't bother your night vision gear, and it's built to military standards, so it can stand up to whatever you throw its way.
