Thanks to a form-fitted composite structure, it can dive down to depths of over 100 meters, and it also offers a fly-by-wire flight control system, adjustable carbon fiber seats, an integrated heads-up display with an artificial horizon, and a positively buoyant design that will always bring you back to the surface.
While flavors like sweet, salty, and even tart steal the spotlight for most of us, there is one that is experiencing an upsurge in popularity — bitter. Bitter is a book that explores this sometimes polarizing flavor which has taken center stage thanks to things like hoppy beers, grapefruit, dark chocolate, and even greens like arugula. Whether you've already acquired a taste for bitter flavors, or are just interested in the culture and history surrounding them, Bitter covers it all, including 100 distinctive recipes.
Made for camping or for use on the back porch, the Camp Candle from Snow Peak isn't your average bug deterrent. Snow Peak, and another Portland based brand Maak Lab, teamed up for this double-wicked candle that is made with citronella and Japanese cedar. The beeswax and soy wax compound smells great and keeps mosquitoes at bay and once you've burned through it all, the stainless steel Backpacker's Cup that held it all is ready for continued use.
Few American cars are more recognizable than the Shelby Cobra. Now you can celebrate this iconic ride with the 50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra 427. Created to celebrate the golden anniversary of the Shelby Cobra 427, 50 of these special edition rides are being produced. They're available with either an aluminum or fiberglass bodies — the former available in polished aluminum or blue with white stripes, the latter only in blue/white — and features special gold badging, logos, and details, and will come with a CSX serial number reserved especially for this series.
It's a question a lot of luxury watch makers are asking themselves: how do you add smartwatch functionality while maintaining the integrity of the mechanical movement? The Montblanc E-Strap is an interesting answer. Instead of replacing the traditional dial and case, this intelligent accessory is integrated into a NATO-style strap and sits opposite the dial, letting you enjoy all the class and accuracy of a traditional timepiece and all the benefits that come with a Bluetooth-connected, wrist-mounted activity tracker and notification tool. Compatible with iOS and Android.
A wide-open door is a refrigerator's worst enemy, letting cold air escape at a rapid pace. Which is why the LG Door-In-Door Mega-Capacity Refrigerator makes so much sense. On the left, the door-in-door offers easy-access storage space, with the right door-in-door can be accessed from the inside or out, making it ideal for things like drinks and snacks. By keeping the inner doors shut, cold air loss is reduced by up to 47 percent; other features include a fresh air filter, LED interior lighting, EasyLift bins, 34 cubic feet of space, and app-connected Smart Diagnosis to keep service calls to a minimum.

When it comes to sweet, decadent, dessert beers, the Salted Caramel Stout from Portland's Breakside Brewing is one of the best you can get your hands on.

For something truly impressive this New Year's Eve, or at any celebration, it's tough to top this Champagne Sabre from Menu. Use this piece of polished, stainless steel to open a bottle of Champagne in dramatic fashion, breaking the entire neck away from the bottle. The normal pressure from the bottle makes sure that no glass gets mixed with the bubbly as it rushes out ready to pour. Take center stage at your next get together and serve your guests in a fashion they won't soon forget.
Tubercles. That's the name for the bumpy area on the fins of humpback whales, and it's also the inspiration for the Nemesis Fins from Speedo. Tubercles create surface area for water to pass over, allowing you to push more water and pick up speed when you need it most. And with square openings named blow valves, water is captured and forced through creating more force on downward kicks. And while it has plenty in common with whales, these were made for you, with superior arch support, extra toe space, and a graduated instep for exceptional comfort.
Keep tabs on the current time around the world with the 11+ World Clock. From the front it looks like any other desk clock, with a clean design featuring a gray dial, gray hour and minute hands, and a bright red second hand. But turn it to the side, and you'll find the names of different international cities inscribed into the body, letting you simply roll your way to different time zones as the hands automatically adjust to show the correct time in whatever city or zone you've chosen. A smart alternative to the traditional "multiple clocks with city labels underneath" setup.
Like the Atom before it, the Ariel Nomad doesn't pretend to be something it's not. So you won't find unnecessary equipment like sunroofs, rear seat infotainment systems, windows, or even doors on this ride. What you will find are four deep-treaded tires, an engine cranking out around 200 hp, a six-speed Honda transmission, a reinforced underbody, a burly brush guard, a strong rollcage, two seats, two driven wheels, and a curb (or trail) weight of less than 1,600 pounds, all combining to make it one of the most lively off-roaders around.
Most cars roll off the lot and proceed to get slightly worse with every mile they drive, until they finally break or are mercifully driven into a wall/lake/lava pit. Teslas are not most cars, and the Tesla Roadster 3.0 Upgrade is a perfect example. This major update — to a car that hasn't even been made since 2012 — includes a new battery that provides 31% more energy than the original, improved aerodynamics, and new tires with less resistance. The result is a 40-50% improvement on range, meaning that where the prior version could make it around 250 miles, 3.0 upgraded cars will be able to roll at least 400 without needing to charge up.
There have been multiple — nine, in fact — editions of Kobe's signature Nikes, but none have taken his nickname quite as literally as the Kobe 9 KRM EXT Black Mamba. Boasting a murdered out black-on-black color scheme, they also feature a scale-inspired texture on the upper, a premium leather tongue, a topographic tread pattern, Flywire for a lockdown fit, Lunarlon cushioning, and a mirrored outsole which joins the logo on the tongue as the only non-black surfaces on the shoe. Supplies very limited.
Described by the company as falling somewhere between single piston and Very Light Jets, the Cirrus Vision SF50 Personal Jet is one of the easiest ways to start jetting. Powered by a Williams FJ33 engine, the SF50 is simple to fly, and offers features like an advanced avionics system powered by Garmin, Sirius XM radio, reclining crew and passenger seats, configuration options that give you room for up to seven people (including the pilot), and, most importantly for the risk-averse, the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) that can bring the craft safely back to the ground in the event of an emergency or mechanical failure.
If you're looking for a great winter beer to add to your fridge this year, look no further than 60 miles south of the Arctic Circle. That's where Icelandic Doppelbock from Einstok Beer Company is made, and it impresses with its taste even more than proximity. It's a classic Dopplebock that is sweet, malty, and light bodied. Easy to drink and a great companion while celebrating the holidays, the winter, or really just about anything.
A sensor for this, a sensor for that — it's obvious that we're going to have a lot of sensors in our lives from now on. Instead of trying to wrangle a bunch of single-purpose gadgets, let the Mother Smart Sensor System take care of things. This system includes an Internet-connected "Mother" base station and a set of four sensors that can be used in a variety of ways: they can sense movement, letting you know when something has been moved, as well as temperature and proximity — since they signal their presence to the Mother, you'll know when they're coming or going. Stick them on whatever you want, set them to sense what you want, add more of them as you need them, and let the Mother keep track.
As nice to behold as they are to use, these Maple Set Knives should be on every chef's wishlist. While the exterior of each knife is dominated by carefully selected Canadian Maple, the German X50CRMOV15 Stainless Steel actually runs from the edge of the blade to the back of the knife, creating a proper weight balance during use. Four rivets work to ensure proper alignment and hold of the steel, and thanks to their hand made nature, each set is unique, arriving in a custom fit foam case. Includes an eight-inch chefs knife and an eight-inch butchers knife.
After years of teases and failed experiments, we might actually be on the cusp of the virtual reality era. One of the reasons is the Samsung Gear VR, which is helping to usher virtual reality into the mainstream. It boasts a mega sized screen which provides the best picture in a consumer VR device on the market. You also get exclusive movies, games, soft cushioning for comfort, and smooth head tracking to avoid the nausea issues other VR devices have been plagued by. You can even read texts or see incoming phone calls while in the virtual theatre, or hit do not disturb and immerse yourself fully in the virtual experience.
It's not just a powerful car. It's not just the most powerful Cadillac. It's the most powerful product in the company's 112-year history. In case you're not getting it, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is a screamer, delivering 640 hp from a new supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine. The powerplant is paired with a paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission, third-generation Magnetic Ride Control, improved structural stiffness, forged aluminum wheels wrapped in specially developed Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, a carbon fiber hood for reduced weight, Brembo brakes, and advanced technology like a front curb-view camera, parking assist, and blind spot alerts. The result is a 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds, a top speed of 200 mph, and a huge grin on your face when you get behind the wheel.
While the colorways may be subdued, the design is anything but. The Adidas Rick Owens Tech Runner is the fashion designer's take on an everyday sneaker, good for everything from running around the park to running to the store. It features a mixed material upper made from suede, leather, and neoprene, a Poron cushioning sockliner, perforated three-stripe detailing, a one-piece EVA midsole, and a distinctive full-length rubber outsole with Owens' signature serrated tread.
As it turns out, tobacco isn't the only thing you can smoke that benefits from being kept in a controlled environment. The Cannador promises to keep your best bud in peak condition, using a unique system that can absorb or release humidity as needed into the solid mahogany interior. As a result, your pot stays fresh longer and tastes better, is protected from damaging UV light, and unlike in a traditional cigar humidor, is safe from potential mold growth caused by too much humidity. Available in a variety of different sizes and configurations, with your choice of a solid walnut or cherry exterior.
It can be said that when an incredibly unique event takes place, a full moon may have played a role. The Full Moon Concept Motorcycle from Slovenian exhaust pioneers Akrapovič may not be the result of a full moon, taking its name from the large aluminum and carbon thirty-inch wheel, but its design and look are nothing short of unique. With over eight hundred hours of work, it features an S&S Knucklehead 1,524 cc engine and two modified custom-made Akrapovič exhausts. The body and frame are made entirely of sheet metal and is an extension of the exhaust system. Designed as a continuation of their 2011 Morsus bike, the Full Moon manages to move the story forward while presenting itself as a completely different, exciting prototype machine.
For many of us, the Roomba was the first robot we had in the house. Unfortunately, there was no real way to have it do anything but clean. With the iRobot Create 2, you have a chance to change that. Built using remanufactured Roombas, the Create 2 offers all the sensors, LEDs, and built-in behaviors — like self-charging — of its cleaning cousins as a starting point for your tinkering. It comes with a USB-based communications cable to start programming your own behaviors, and even includes a drilling template in case you decide to start adding hardware, like a camera, gripper arm, or zombie-shredding machete. Basically, it's everything you need to build a real robot — like Anakin building C-3PO, but without all that Midichlorian nonsense.
