Already known for their design contribution to the likes of Ferrari, Pininfarina is synonymous with beautiful, luxurious aesthetics. But now they'll be known for something a little bit different — the Pininfarina Cambiano Inkless Pen. At first glance, the design is unmistakably Pininfarina, with an elegant shape, handcrafted in Italy from aluminum and wood. But the design is far from the most impressive aspect of this pen. Its ethergraph tip allows it to write forever, without the need to ever refill ink. This tip gives it the precision of writing with a sharp pencil, with effortless strokes, while also leaving a permanent mark like your former favorite pen.
Snorkeling is a great way to take in the sights and sounds under the sea without the need for bulky scuba equipment or certification. But it does have one big drawback: you either get used to breathing solely through your mouth, and keeping your head high enough that no water comes in, or you deal with water in your mouth and fogged up goggles. Unless you're wearing the Easybreath Snorkeling Mask. This revolutionary mask fits over your entire face, allowing you to breathe normally underwater without fear of fog, and features a dry-top system on the top that plugs the air intake when immersed, preventing water from entering.
Get your insulin shots ready, because Evil Twin Brewing has a brand new beer for those with a sweet tooth. Imperial Doughnut Break is the brainchild of Evil Twin head brewer Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, who stuffed whole donuts into a keg of Imperial Biscotti Break and tapped it for a special event. It was so well received that they decided to team up with Westbrook Brewing to get it in 22oz bottles, and into your hands. It's a coffee doughnut porter, tips the scales at 11.5% ABV, and despite the description, isn't diabetes in a bottle. It's sweet, but balanced, making it a fine candidate for breakfast or dessert.
Back in the pre-iPhone days, a little gadget called the Pacemaker Pocket DJ made a big impression — it was the world's first portable DJ system. But one look at the App Store let us know that it's days would be short lived. And they were. But now the original team is back with a new app called, simply, Pacemaker. This free app — add-on effects are available for in-app purchase — lets you mix, loop, blend, and drop all you want, using tracks from your own music library or any of the millions of tracks on Spotify.
It's easy to go out and buy a ping pong table. But it's not easy to find one that doesn't look like a playing surface slapped on top of a metal box. The Killerspin SVR Black Ping Pong Table is not a surface on a box. Offering tournament-level performance, this top-tier table features a playing surface made from 22 millimeter medium density fiberboard for a consistent bounce and with a Repeat Roller Coating for minimal glare. There's an Apex net and steel post system, but perhaps the most notable feature is the base — a 2.5-inch thick arched silver metal frame that will look fantastic no matter where you place it.
We heard there's a big game on Sunday. So we decided to build a new sports site like you've never seen before. Rookie.com is the sports site we wanted for ourselves. It sucks having to dig through the slog of sports stories to find that one great quote or valuable insight, so we've done all the work for you with Rookie. But this isn't some algorithm we shoved into a machine — everything is hand curated by us, and ready for you to consume. Rookie cuts through the noise and looks good doing it. Your move, ESPN.
Watch bands are generally at their worst an afterthought and at best designed around how they can compliment a watch's face. The band of the Void Sond Watch is actually part of the face. Injection molded in one single piece, this stylish digital timepiece boasts a locking mechanism that uses the watch itself to secure the nylon band. Just three components — the case, the band, and the fitting loops — are involved, but since each one is available in eight colors, over 500 combinations are possible. As for us, we'll stick to the simple solid grey.

Well known for its studio monitors and audio interfaces, M-Audio obviously knows a thing or two about sound quality. The M-Audio HDH50 Headphones are no exception. These over-ear cans offer 50mm neodymium drivers, gunmetal-finished aluminum and steel construction, a closed-back design, two cables — one with a 1/8" connector, and one with an in-line mic — and studio-grade tuning, frequency response, and audio quality.
No, it's not literally slow — otherwise it wouldn't be much of a timepiece. Then again, the single hands of Slow Watches do move slower than usual. But there's a good reason for that: these novel watches use a single hand that rotates around a full 24-hour dial, with indexes marking every 15 minutes. Whether that causes you to speed up or slow down depends on your temperament, but no matter what, you rest assured the Swiss Made Ronda Caliber 505.24H GMT movement will keep the correct time.
