When you're out on the race track, timing is everything — from figuring out exactly how late you can brake, to getting your shifts down perfectly, to hitting all the right lines — everything contributes to shaving seconds off your lap time. The CT Scuderia Corsa Watch is made with exactly this in mind — with a design inspired by the clunky stop-watches typically worn around the neck by those helping you measure those precious seconds. It features a prominent start/stop button that protrudes from the watch case, making it simple to press even when you're on the move. With interchangeable bands made from leather materials regularly found in performance cars, and a range of colored cases and buttons available, you can customize it just as much as you do your ride.
It's easier to be bad than you think.

Odds are, you care just as much about how a product looks as you care how well it works — and the Grain Audio Passive Bookshelf Speakers combine the aesthetics of solid wood with the performance of professional-grade speakers. They use FSC certified solid walnut in each of their speakers, so no two look exactly alike, while also adding heft and helping contribute to their acoustics. A solid MDF enclosure helps your audio sound excellent each time you listen, regardless of your musical preferences. Each speaker features 25 to 75 watts of power and a five-and-a-quarter inch mid bass woofer with neodymium magnets and CCAW voice coils.
It's not always easy to find an audio system that looks good in your room. But you know what nearly always looks cool? A bulldog. So why not combine the two? At least, that appears to have been the thinking behind the AeroBull. This unique speaker features a 5.25-inch subwoofer, dual 2.25-inch satellites, 100W of total power, an iPod/iPhone dock, Bluetooth for wireless streaming, NFC, and a line-in for other audio sources. But the best part? It looks like an all-black dog wearing sunglasses — and that will match anything.
Straddling the line between usable product and art, the Bandit9 Eve Motorcycle is among the most beautiful two-wheelers we've ever seen. Outfitted in nearly all chrome — pretty much everything but the tires, grips, and seat — this sleek ride is based on a 1967 Honda SS, can be built with engines ranging from 90-125cc, and is absolutely guaranteed to draw as much attention as any bike you've ever ridden.
Life doesn't just happen within the confines of a rectangular frame — plenty happens on the periphery as well — and that's where normal video cameras fall short. But with the 360Fly Camera you're not just limited to what's in front of you, it films in 360 degrees horizontally, and 240 degrees vertically, capturing the entirety of life around you. With the ability to attach to helmets, tripods, bikes, boards, and more, it's the perfect way to preserve all of life's memories. And since it's compatible with both iOS and Android, and works with apps for both, you can view video as it's captured, instantly edit it, and share it on the web with your friends.
The latest release from Compass Box is an extraordinary scotch whiskey that is both rare and mysterious. The General is a blend of a 33 year old batch, while the rest of the blend is made up of a batch with an unknown age statement. It's named after a Buster Keaton film from the 1920's and is limited to only, and exactly, 1,698 bottles. You won't feel like you're getting a bargain, but if the taste comes anywhere near the backstory, this whiskey will be a runaway hit.
Let's face it: even the best smartphone flashes are no match for a dedicated light source. Now you can add one to your iPhone with the Ember Night Photography Tool. Sporting an array of 56 LEDs with a built-in diffuser and multiple available color filters, this handy light/case will let you take much improved nighttime photos with your 5 or 5S. A removable top piece lets you use any add-on lenses you might have, and don't worry about draining your battery, either — thanks to a built-in power source, you can take pictures for hours without a problem.
Yes, it's still a concept, but unlike most of Volvo's recent study cars, the Volvo Estate Concept provides a glimpse at what the Swedish car maker's upcoming models will look like on the inside. The dash of this three-door wagon is dominated by a large, tablet-like touch screen that replaces virtually all controls save for volume, play/pause, hazards, and window heaters, and integrates with the digital gauge cluster. The interior also boasts supple leather, naturally-aged wood accents, and sleek forms inspired by Scandanavian living rooms. Details on the engine, gearbox, and other essentials for actual driving are slim, but like most concepts, it doesn't really matter since it's never going on sale anyway.
Throwing knives, whether it be at playing cards, tree trunks, animals, or (especially) people, is serious business. Show your commitment to the craft with this set of BCX Furies Throwing Knives. The pack includes two frontier-inspired knives and one Pro X Thrower, all made from forged high carbon steel and giving you enough variety to become quite the hurler. They all arrive in a handsome, handcrafted heavy canvas roll with leather scales, point pockets, flaps, and straps — a fittingly rugged yet refined accessory for a wilderness-friendly skill.
The standard Tacoma is one tough truck — but if you're trying to make it to the South Pole, you're going to need something a bit beefier. Something like this Toyota Tacoma Polar Expedition Truck. Built specifically for that purpose, this truck made the run to the South Pole and back in just under 40 hours. Special features include a supercharged 4L V6 engine, a specially-tuned transmission, a suspension and undercarriage from Marconi, a steel body, four racing seats, an engine heater, upgraded batteries, a solar panel, and seven (!) fuel tanks with a total capacity of roughly 330 gallons — so while you won't have to fill up often, it's going to be brutal when you do.
Keeping a multitool handy when you head into the wilderness is always a good idea. Weighing down your pockets isn't. That's why they make these CRKT Survival Bracelet Tools. Designed to fit over a paracord bracelet, this handy accessory keeps a compass, magnesium firestarter, and an LED light right on your wrist. Unlike most tools, it's lacking a bottle opener, but not to worry — they make one that you can keep on the exact same bracelet.
