The San Francisco Fire Department has been "green" since before it was a fad. With their own ladder shop, they are repairing and refurbishing wooden ladders from as far back as 1918 and aren't planning on changing anytime soon.

More than a simple camera drone, GoPro Karma is a series of separate accessories that work together to deliver great-looking aerial footage in the air or on the ground. It starts with the drone and its folding design, top speed of 35mph, 20-minute runtime, and the touchscreen controller that gets even novices up and running with ease. The stabilizer slides inside the Karma Grip — for smooth handheld videos. And the entire kit packs into a backpack case. The Karma system is compatible with the Hero 5 Black and Hero 4 Black and Silver.

The 1960's was a revolutionary time for diving, with significant improvements to underwater diving apparatus and underwater timing instruments. Leading the charge was Oris, and now they've reached back into their archives for the Oris Divers Sixty-Five Watch. The follow-up to the critically acclaimed blue-dialed version, the green Oris arrives with an updated look of the original while retaining retro details like the slim case line, thin bezel, and trapezoid date window. It's also taken advantage of 21st-century watchmaking techniques with Swiss Made automatic movement, bubble-curved glass made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and anti-reflective coating on the inside to reduce glare and increase legibility while underwater. This direct descendant of one of Oris's first diver's comes with a choice of three straps and a metal bracelet, and successfully melds the groundbreaking features of the original with modern enhancements for a diver that's in a class by itself.

This could create a time paradox, the results of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space time continuum, and destroy the entire universe. Granted, that's a worse case scenario. The destruction might in fact be very localized, limited to merely our own galaxy.
