One of the best ways to live a healthier life is to know more about the air you're taking in every second. The Air Quality Monitor from TZOA uses internal sensors to measure air quality, temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, ambient light, and UV exposure all at once. It's a wearable device that connects to your smartphone and gives you information to help you make the best decision about the safest areas to spend your time.
It drives on the highway. It uses regular gas. It fits in normal parking spots. And it flies. The AeroMobil Flying Car is aiming to be a complete solution for door-to-door travel, as it converts back and forth between airplane and car in just seconds. It's powered by a Rotax 912 engine, offers two seats, and is based on a steel framework with an advanced composite shell, wings, and wheels. It has a top speed of 124 mph in the air and 99 mph on the ground, a take-off speed of 81 mph, and a range of 435 miles in the air and 545 on the ground, or more than enough to get you from SF to LA without hitting I-5 once.
While it does sport a vintage style, Tumi 1975 Luggage doesn't necessarily ape bags from the mid-70s. Instead, the number refers to the year of the company's founding, a fact that's celebrated with the collection's carry-on, rucksack, duffel, travel kit, and luggage tag, as well as the full-grain leather and ballistic nylon construction. Designed and made in the US. Limited to just 1,975 pieces.

If you've ever been to a wedding or some other formal event, odds are you know the hell that is renting a tuxedo. Or hell that was, rather, thanks to The Black Tux, the first tuxedo and suit rental company that just doesn't feel like one. They make it quick and easy to rent a high-quality suit by letting you enter your measurements (or go to a tailor) and select an outfit online.

Thanks to the lack of a middleman, you'll be wearing a $1000+ suit for a much lower price.

You've cut the cord. Now cut down on your remotes. The Sideclick promises to turn the remote for your streaming box into the only remote you need. Available in four different variations for the most popular boxes around — those being the Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, and Apple TV — these remotes attach to the side/back of your existing remote, adding crucial TV controls like power, channel, volume, and input that are missing from the streaming controls.

Some partnerships make perfect sense, but never actually materialize. So when New Belgium Brewing and Ben & Jerry's announced they were teaming up to create Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale, it sounded deliciously overdue. Both companies have been champions of environmental causes for years, and they have both continued to create tasty products we love as well. The only downside to Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale is that it won't see store shelves until this Fall, when it's likely to become one of our favorite new beers.

It's not much bigger than an action cam — but it's way more capable. The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera packs a Super 16mm professional sensor into a tiny body that can be mounted anywhere. A built-in expansion port lets you control settings like iris, focus, audio levels, and even get video output using affordable model aircraft remote control gear.

Just because you don't distill bourbon yourself doesn't mean it can't be fantastic. And Red Handed Bourbon from Treaty Oak Distilling in Austin, Texas is a perfect example. Using some of their favorite bourbons from Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee, Treaty Oak blends them together to find the perfect taste profile and then ages the whiskey for another 12 to 15 months. The results are an expertly blended, unique high rye bourbon that should be on your radar.

The best part of owning a growler is the ability to take fresh beer, right off the tap, anywhere you go. The worst part of course, is when it runs out. With The Juggernaut from DrinkTanks, it will still run dry, but not until 128 ounces — twice the size of your average growler — are consumed. It's cast from top notch stainless steel, with a double wall vacuum insulation and a cap that locks securely by a sturdy double bail locking system. It'll keep your precious beer cold for more than 24 hours and even comes in 11 different finishes.

It gives you the ability to record in RAW and ProRes formats simultaneously, and like its stablemates, you'll need to buy your lenses, monitors, viewfinders, storage, and other attachments separately.
Sophisticated yet simple. That's the promise of the 3DR Solo Drone — an aerial photography solution that's highly capable yet able to be controlled by novice users right out of the box. Working with GoPro, it's the world's first drone to allow full in-flight control of the action cam, and delivers live-streaming HD video straight to your mobile device via the controller. Speaking of which, the video game-inspired box was designed to be easy to use, and houses one of the system's two 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A9-powered computers — the other is in the aircraft itself. Thanks to a 3-axis gimbal, smart, intuitive software, and advanced GPD-guided flight features, it makes it possible to capture steady, professional-looking footage, even if you're far from an experienced pilot yourself.
