Its specs are the stuff of science fiction. Its looks are too. Powered by four electric motors paired with a 6.2L V8 — a system it calls the "Warp Drive" — the Arash AF10 produces an insane 2,100 hp, capable of moving its carbon chassis from 0-60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. Its gearboxes are similarly advanced, with each motor getting a 2-speed box, while the V8 gets your choice of manual or paddle shift six-speed. The body is sculpted to be as slick as possible, with a fixed wing in the rear, and moving wing in the front, and a tear drop cockpit.
A backpack that's equipped for your everyday routine is hard to find. And when you do find one, it rarely looks like something you want to be seen toting around. The Octovo Backpack is sophisticated and practical at the same time, with a secure small zip pocket for phone, keys, or wallet that is located on the side for easy access while you wear it. You also get a small pocket in front and a 15" interior pocket for your laptop. It's also water resistant and is available in charcoal, blue or smoke. Fold over or roll the top and close with a side release buckle and head out with a pack that looks great and protects your everyday essentials.
Like an iPod shuffle for streaming, the Mighty Spotify Player lets you enjoy your playlists without the need for a larger device. The 1.5-inch square device clips easily onto clothing or accessories, and has both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for syncing your music from Spotify and then streaming it to your headphones, no wires required. It's drop- and water-resistant, holds up to 48 hours of music on a 2GB flash drive, has five hours of playback per charge, and uses an Android base to run the official Spotify app in the background, only instead of a screen, you use the physical buttons for control.
We're going to go ahead and assume that if you own a yacht, you probably have a pretty stellar collection of cars. The Sea Level CF8 Concept Yacht gives you a glass-covered area to put them in, showing them off to passersby. While just a concept, the 80 meter long, 30 meter wide yacht is projected to have a top speed of 18 knots, and provide a highly stable, comfortable voyage thanks to that wide stance. It also packs a pool in the area underneath the top deck, a light-filled interior, and, of course, a helipad.
The Rimac Concept One is a special vehicle, and not just because it's among the rare concepts that become production cars. It's special because it's being dubbed the first all-electric hypercar. Thanks to a quartet of permanent magnet electric motors, one for each wheel, it has a total output of 1088 hp, good for a 0-62 time of 2.6 seconds and the ability to reach 186 mph in just 14.2 seconds. Handling is helped along by the central location of the motors, allowing for perfect weight distribution and a low center of gravity, while the carbon-ceramic braking system helps slow things down when necessary and the luxurious interior keeps you comfortable as the scenery flies by.
WiFi shouldn't be that type of four-letter word. With eero, say goodbye to wireless dead zones, annoying buffering, and endless trips to reset your router. One router can't effectively cover an entire home. What you need is multiple access points — placed throughout your home. That's where eero comes in. Just plug your first eero into your existing modem. A simple app helps you place additional eeros; they only need power from a standard outlet. Your eeros automatically and wirelessly connect to form a mesh network that provides fast, reliable signal to every room. Manage your network remotely, or add a guest quickly without the need to remember and give out your password. And to even further distance itself from the loads of ugly routers on the market, eero has a white, minimalist design that won't have you searching for a closet to shove it into.
Every photographer has their own style. It's only fitting they should have their own compact camera to match. That's the idea behind the lineup of Nikon DL Cameras. All three are powered by a 20.8MP 1.0-inch type backside illumination CMOS sensor and the new EXPEED 6A image-processing engine for continuous shooting speed of 20 frames per second. They also share a speedy hybrid AF system combining both phase-detection AF and Contrast-detect AF, 4K video capture, and 3-inch OLED touch screens. But it's there the similarities end, as each camera has a different zoom lens. There's an 18-50 f/1.8-2.8 for versatility and excellent low-light performance, a 24-85 f/1.8-2.8 that great for macro and portraits, and a 24-500 f/2.8-5.6 that offers both wide-angle and super-telephoto in the same body.
Not enough to simply be one of the finest cars Ferrari ever made, this 1957 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Tour de France has quite the racing record to go along with it. It was entered in 10 races throughout 1958, '59, and '60, with strong finishes in most, including 3rd place at Reims and Monza. It also saw its share of scrapes, with one young owner running the right side into the wall of a Peugeot factory. It has since been meticulously restored by noted collector and mechanic Wayne Sparling, and is presented here in its original Grigio color, with its original matching-numbers 3.0L V12 engine producing 253 hp.
People have been wishing for modular smartphones since the first Treos appeared on the street. The LG G5 finally makes them a reality. Its small bottom bezel actually slides out, taking the battery with it, and can be replaced with modules that serve as a camera grip, a Hi-Fi DAC audio player, and more. Speaking of cameras, it has two on its rear surface, one with a 78-degree lens and a 16 megapixel sensor and another with a 135-degree lens for wide-angle 8 megapixel shots, and its 5.3-inch Quad HD IPS Quantum display has an always-on feature that shows you the time and date even when the phone's asleep.
It feels like every time you turn around there's a new IPA or hop variety to sample. It's tough to keep up with for brewers, but Firestone Walker has a great solution in the form of Luponic Distortion IPA. Each release is an evolution of the previous one, with a new remix hitting store shelves every 90 days. Each one promises to be a crisp, clean, aromatic IPA, and should help the FW brewers stay one step ahead of hop fanatics.
An updated take on the classic silhouette, the Todd Snyder x PF Flyers Rambler Hi Sneaker pairs well with a wide assortment of ensembles. The Cheveux leather upper comes in black or white, with a debossed ankle patch, and perforations down the side and on the tongue to add visual interest while increasing ventilation. A light gum rubber midsole provides contrast with the monotone upper, the cushion insole is complemented by pigskin lining, and the rear features Todd Snyder's signature logo loop. Good for everything from a business meeting to a lazy day grocery run.
With curved glass on its sides, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge stands out like few other smartphones. It performs better than most of them, as well. Thanks to optical image stabilization and an f/1.7 lens, its rear camera makes the most of its 12 megapixels, especially in low light. It's water and dust resistant, it has a hybrid SIM tray that supports microSD cards for added storage, and the fingerprint sensor keeps your data secure while supporting mobile payments. But perhaps the most interesting new feature is the always-on 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, which lets you see the time, date, and notifications, all without needing to wake the phone up. Available in black, gold, and silver, with 32GB of internal storage.
It's difficult to make any changes to iconic glasses like the Clubmaster from Ray-Ban. But the Clubmaster Wood is an iteration we can get behind. The frames are treated and then lined so they remain comfortable and flexible. The full rim wooden frames are available in walnut, maple, or cherry versions — each one providing an updated yet classic look from one of the best sunglass manufacturers on the planet.
It has the iconic trident logo in the center of its grille. It has three air vents between the front wheels and the doors. It has a powerful engine. It's a Maserati through and through. It's just not a sports car. The Maserati Levante is the company's first foray into the SUV space, melding a sports car-like silhouette with intelligent all-wheel-drive, space for four adult-sized humans, and ground clearance that will let you breathe easy going over speed bumps, not to mention the occasional gravel trail. Details are sparse, but you can expect to find a specially-calibrated 8-speed transmission paired to the gas or diesel engine, an electronic suspension, and a fittingly luxurious interior underneath the swooping bodywork.
Perched on a Chilean cliff's edge, the Encallada House is part beach house, part mountain retreat. The exterior is covered in charred pine wood, with an angular roof that recalls the rocky terrain. Inside, light wood on the walls, floors, and ceilings contrasts with the house's exterior and the frames of the floor-to-ceiling windows, which afford views of an estuary and the Pacific beyond. The home is split into five levels, with large open spaces and a sizable terrace on the ground floor, and bedrooms spread across the upper levels.
Yes, we realize that he drove a white Lamborghini in the movie. Jordan Belfort owned one of those too. But it's not for sale. The Wolf Of Wall Street's 1991 Ferrari Testarossa is. Purchased by the Wolf brand new, this USA-spec model has been meticulously cared for over the years, and has only 8000 fully documented miles on the odometer. It comes complete with the original service books, handbook, and tools, as well as a set of matching luggage that is unused, but had a mysteriously scrunched $50 bill in the lining of one of the bags. It will be included, but as for tales of the debauchery that likely went on inside, you'll have to use your imagination.
Inspired by the father of managing director Ciaran Mulgrew, who tended bar for over 50 years but told no tales, The Quiet Man 8-Year-Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey has just hit US store shelves. The 8 year variety is finished in first-fill bourbon barrels and boasts a high malt percentage that helps provide a smooth finish. It's also the first Irish whiskey produced in Derry, Ireland in more than 100 years.
Someday, we hope to live in a world where tourism posters try to lure in travelers to the ultimate destination — a trip to space. These NASA Tourism Posters were created with that future in mind, beautifully depicting trips to Mars, Jupiter, or Saturn as potential destinations competing for your vacation money. There are 14 in all, but only three are available as high-quality prints from the design firm that created them.
In a neighborhood filled with oversized homes, the Stamford House stands out not by the space it occupies, but the space it doesn't. The home, also referred to as That House, is constructed using three rectangular forms — two on the bottom, joined by an open walkway, that house the shared family space, with a kitchen, living room, office, and bathroom, and a single upper space straddling both to house the bedrooms. With floor-to-ceiling glass capping all three components on both sides, upwards blinds to give the owners control over their level of privacy, while a cross-shaped pool matches the angular design of the home itself.
The Huayra was already a speedy beast of a machine. The Pagani Huayra BC is just speedier. With the BC, the company has managed to massage 789 hp from the twin-turbo 6.0L V12 engine, and paired it with a brand-new seven-speed automatic that cuts shift times in half while also weighing less. Indeed, lighter weight was also a goal for the car, as it's nearly 300 lbs. lighter than the "standard" model, thanks to upgrades like a new titanium exhaust system, lighter Brembo brakes, custom forged wheels, and a revised, more aerodynamic body made from an all-new composite material that's 50 percent lighter yet 20 percent stronger than carbon fiber.
Thanks to the thickest transparent acrylic hull ever made, the Triton 6600/2 Submarine promises to do something no other personal sub can do: give you a glimpse of the ocean over a mile down. It can handle depths of 6,600 feet, to be more precise, has room for two passengers, moves at a pace of 3.5 mph, and has a maximum dive time of ten hours. For added reassurance, there's enough oxygen to last 96 hours in an emergency, as well as air conditioning, high-output LED lights, and support for more, should you need added light for shooting photos or video through the optically perfect hull.
It looks like something you'd see in outer space, not in the ocean — but make no mistake about it, the Schwinge Hyswas Tetrahedron Superyacht concept is grounded in logic that could see it cruising the seas in the near future. Thanks to a torpedo hull attached to the main, pyramid-like structure via a single strut, the vessel appears to levitate at speed, helped along by a pair of adjustable hydrofoils. At more reasonable speeds, it sits on its three underbelly hulls, with the sides folding down to become decks, ladders providing water access, and the interior offering all the upscale amenities you'd expect from a floating palace.
Bring a touch of street fashion to the course with the Nike Flyknit Chukka Golf Shoe. The first golfing shoe to use the lightweight, form-fitting upper, it also has Flywire technology for added support and improved lockdown, and a Nike Free-inspired sole that includes special traction units in the toe and heel. The upper is skinned in a thin layer of TPU for protection against light rain and dew, the mid-top silhouette helps to keep dirt and debris off your ankle, and the Phylon midsole offers all-day comfort. Available in two colorways.
Built as a holiday home on the shores of a royal-owned lake not far from Vienna, the Seehaus uses its horseshoe-shaped structure to great effect. Inside the building, which is clad in blackened timber panels, are five bedrooms, multiple living areas and bathrooms, and a sauna, with plenty of glass on the northern side, and south-facing glazing limited to areas shadowed by the neighboring building. In the center is a patio/courtyard that provides plenty of outdoor living space, while providing views of the water and evening sunsets.
There's no question flexible screens are coming. But there is some debate on how they'll be used. The Reflex Smartphone suggests that bending be merged with multi-touch to give phones more input methods. Built using a 720 Flexible OLED screen from LG powered by Android 4.4, the Reflex accepts traditional touch input, but also uses bend sensors behind the display to sense the force you're using to bend the screen and respond accordingly. When used in conjunction with a voice coil that produces highly-detailed vibrations, the phone is able to simulate real-world actions like flipping through the pages of a book or pulling back a rubber band to fling a supernatural bird at some fort-building pigs. It was developed by the Human Media Lab at Queen's University, and while it's currently just a proof-of-concept, the Lab expects similar features to appear in consumer products in less than five years.
Upon expanding his company out from its scented candles and perfumes, Ben Gorham has brought his art background to bear on a new travel collection that's as visually stunning as it is useful. Included in the collection is this Byredo Travel Knife. This folding pocket knife has a gold core and a brushed matte handle with the company's signature "B" cut out on one side and a piece of solid wood on the other. The blade itself is a sharp, rounded affair that sits above the knife's recessed slot in the included wooden display box.
