Not many people can say they've won multiple X Games medals on both snowmobiles and motorcycles — and fewer still can claim they did it wearing a prosthetic leg they built themselves. But Mike Schultz, creator of the 2013 Popular Science Invention Award-winning Versa Foot, sure can. Taking what he learned from building his first prosthesis, Schultz built this prosthetic foot using FOX motorcycle parts, creating one of the most customizable prosthetic feet for athletic applications out there. Made with adjustable shock absorbers, interchangeable sole plates, four different ankle configurations, and durable construction that can stand up to mud, sand, snow, and water, the Versa Foot is ready to handle pretty much anything you can.
With a generations-long history of producing fine maritime timepieces, it should come as no surprise that Omega would create something as stunning and innovative as the Seamaster Planet Ocean Ceragold Watch. Made with the ocean in mind, this watch features water resistance down to 2,000 feet, a helium escape valve, and an 18-karat red gold diving scale on the bezel. Made from an 18-karat gold-encrusted ceramic known as Ceragold, it has a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a red gold case, a black dial, and a transparent case back. With a self-winding chronograph movement and a power reserve of 60 hours, you'll be ready for any adventure — aquatic or otherwise.
With the weather threatening to break soon and the cold temperatures waving goodbye, it's time to continue drinking great beer, but with more choices for your surroundings. To put it simply, it's time to drink outside. Stone Brewing, already known for fresh, fantastic IPAs, has a new offering this spring, Go To IPA. It's not only perfect for an outdoor drinking session, but is also ideal when you want to drink more than one. It packs all of the dry, bitter, hop flavors and aromas into a very manageable 4.5% ABV package — ensuring you won't have any trouble making it back to the fridge for another round.
The bottle is very classy but rather plain; the fragrance inside is anything but. Arriving in a black and polished silver container, Montblanc Legend Cologne is here to add a touch of intrigue to your personal scent. This masculine fragrance features clean, energetic top notes, a woodsy, slightly floral center, and a dry finish that includes notes of both tonka beans and sandalwood. Smell legendary.
Whether you're just getting introduced to sushi or are a long time fan, Sooshi should have something to interest you. This surprisingly deep app is split into five sections, providing information on the most common sushis and how to prepare them, the utensils you'll need, how to select the best fish, other ingredients, and, should you decide that you're not feeling up to making it yourself, a restaurant finder that uses your current location and Foursquare information to find the best sushi spots nearby.
It was never the most impressive looking of the Star Wars vehicles — in fact, it looked a little junky — but it was always packed to the gills with interesting stuff. Now you can recreate it at home with this Lego Star Wars Sandcrawler set. Built from an impressive 3,296 pieces, it stands over 9 inches tall and 18 inches long, and features eight steerable tracks, a lowering ramp, opening side flaps, a speeder bike, a detailed interior, seven minifigures — including Luke, Uncle Owen, C-3PO, and some Jawas — and five droids, including R2-D2.
Caffeine is everywhere — in our coffee, in our energy drinks, even in our snacks. But very few of us really know how it affects us, or how much they ingest every day. Up Coffee could change all that. Made by Jawbone, it tracks your caffeine levels throughout the day as it learns more about how your body metabolizes the drug. It even compares your intake to your quality of sleep, giving you a better look at how your body works. And while the Up fitness tracker might cost money, Up Coffee is completely free.
Survival in the great outdoors isn't just about knowing how to act when situations look their direst — it's about having the right tools to get the job done, no matter what. And the only thing worse than needing tools you don't have, is having them but not being able to use them for lack of power. With the Goal Zero Lighthouse 250 Lantern you can recharge your devices no matter where you are, and get enough light to find your way out of the darkest situations. In addition to being a powerful, adjustable lantern that stays on for up to 48 hours, it's also equipped with a USB port that lets you charge a wide range of portable devices. And with rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that can get a charge from the included hand crank, a wall outlet, or a compatible solar panel, you won't have to worry about running out of juice ever again.
Never be forced to use crappy plastic silverware again with the Case Hobo Knife. Featuring an amber bone handle and made in the USA from surgical steel, this handy pocketable tool features a sharp blade, a fork, and a spoon, all built into a foldable body that allows the utensils to detach for eating/cleaning. Just don't equate it's humble purpose with cheapness or lack of quality — while it might be designed for a hobo, it's definitely not priced for one.

Unless you carry garish luggage, odds are it's not so easy for you to spot your bags on a conveyor after a long layover and five hour connecting flight. Make things easier with the CalypsoTag. This smart gadget is made of premium Italian leather and attaches to your luggage to make it easier to spot, all while connecting to your phone via Bluetooth 4 to let you know where it's at. It's not quite GPS for your bags, but it's close — and a lot more effective than just showing up at the baggage claim with nothing but a paper stub and a prayer.
Thanks to Jay-Z, we know that rocking Tom Ford is the stylish thing to do — and now you can rock it even when you're in shorts and flip-flops with Tom Ford Wood & Tobacco Cologne. These premium scents are decidedly masculine, with the wood offering notes of rosewood, cardamom, oud wood, sandalwood, vetiver, tonka bean and amber, and the tobacco mixing oud wood resin with smoking aromatic and idealized Arabic tobacco. For an extra dose of manliness, splash yourself with a little bourbon. On second thought, don't — just drink it instead.
