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.
Getting your space to the optimum level of humidity shouldn't be a pain — finding the perfect setting, checking water levels, and frequent refills become a thing of the past with the Roolen Breath Humidifier. Completely controlled with just one button, you can set Breath to one of three modes: low for up to 24 hours of moisture, high for up to 12 hours in a very dry environment, or an auto mode that lets it determine the appropriate amount of moisture for you. And with an elegant design available in white or black, a small footprint, and quiet efficient operation, you'll barely even notice the device as it steadily improves your environment.
Made as a robotics kit for the everyman, the EZ Robot Kits make building, customizing, and programming your own robot accessible to anyone — even if you don't have a degree in engineering or computer science. With three chassis available (a hexapod, a humanoid, and a tracked roller) you can build on each with modular components like arms, legs, servos, sensors, and cameras. Their EZ-Builder software lets you construct robots digitally before assembling them, and write programs with a simple-to-use interface, letting you share your creations across the community. And for those feeling a little more adventurous, you can even 3D-print pieces for your robot at home.
These days it seems like everyone is brewing beer at home — so it's a bit surprising that far fewer people have gotten into home wine-making — perhaps just because it's more trouble than it's worth. But with the Miracle Machine, you can make your own wine at home without all the fuss. This small, attractive machine functions as a countertop appliance, and using inexpensive grape concentrate, yeast, and other ingredients available through Miracle Machine, you can make great wine in only days. Built-in sensors operated by an Arduino micro-controller keep the fermentation process on track, while available iOS and Android apps let you control and monitor your winemaking during every step.
There's nothing better than waking up to the smell of freshly-cooked bacon. Now you can enjoy that experience every morning with Oscar Mayer Wake Up & Smell The Bacon.

Buffalo Trace continues to innovate with their Experimental Collection and the most recent release, Extended Stave Drying Time. The wood planks that make up a bourbon barrel are dried out in the open air for about six months before being turned into barrel planks. Stave drying plays an important role in the taste of the bourbon, so Buffalo Trace decided to experiment by allowing the staves for this spirit to dry out for about twice as long. The extended drying time bourbon is significantly aided by the extra time too, balancing the oak flavors that can sometimes dominate in an older bourbon. Snag both bottles and try them side by side with a friend for the full experience.
Finally, some porn you can leave out on the coffee table without upsetting your parents. Cabin Porn is a labor of love from the blog of the same name, offering up the story of the owners' Beaver Brook cabin, as well as ten other cabins and their builders, complete with stunning photography by Noah Kalina and stories from Steven Leckart. Oh, and hundreds of other cabins submitted by the Cabin Porn community.
Let's be honest, your RV is pretty great, letting you feel at home just about anywhere the roads take you — but there are some things it just can't handle, like a blizzard, off road excursion, or fording a river. But with the Mercedes-Benz Zetros 6×6 Vehicle, you don't need roads to get where you're going, thanks to its all-wheel drive capabilities, six massive all-terrain tires, and 7.2-liter six-cylinder in-line engine producing 326 horsepower. Billed as the ultimate hunting and expedition vehicle, it comes outfitted with a quad-bike that deploys out of a ramp in the rear. And for after the hunt, the inside is luxuriously appointed, sporting everything from a marble bathroom to a 46-inch TV.

Most fans of writer/director/producer/creative badass J.J. Abrams know about his mystery box — if you don't, go watch this — and now you can bring a little bit of that mystery home with the J.J. Abrams x Theory11 Mystery Box. A collaborative effort from Abrams and magic makers Theory11, this unique offering consists of a handcrafted lockbox made from 100-year-old reclaimed wood, iron-branded with a question mark and arriving with an alphanumeric lock. But unlike J.J.'s box, you'll know what's inside — 12 decks of playing cards wrapped in letterpressed kraft paper and a letterpressed note from Abrams himself.
For the third generation 2015 Audi TT, the styling is more an evolution than it is a total revamp, getting its inspiration from the first-generation TT and the recent Audi Quattro Concept. With a front grill that resembles the recent concept, and hindquarters with the same rounded lines of the original, it features three available drivetrains — the base, a two-liter four-cylinder twin-turbo with 184 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and the most performant with 310 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. And with an available manual transmission, or a six-speed dual-clutch automatic, and front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive variants, there's not much this sporty two-seater can't handle.
