Star Wars superfan Barry has spent many painstaking hours creating this insanely detailed Battle of Hoth diorama. The 140-square-foot replica is filled with AT-AT walkers, tauntauns, snowtroopers, and explosions, perfectly creating the snowy battlefield from The Empire Strikes Back.
Grado has been building headphones since 1953 and has only had three generations of drivers over the last 20 years. With the SR225x, they're introducing the fourth. The new 44mm drivers have a more powerful magnetic circuit, a mass-reduced voice coil, and a redesigned diaphragm, resulting in less distortion and greater clarity. They sit inside an open-air cup, connected to a better-cushioned faux-leather headband and outfitted with an improved, more durable headphone cable. Built by hand in Brooklyn, NY.
Frequency Response: 20 - 22,000 hz / SPL 1mW: 99.8 dB / Nominal Impedance: 38 ohms / Driver Matched dB: .05 dB
The timeless eyewear icon has been given a new-age upgrade with Ampere's Dusk Smart Sunglasses. The app-enabled frames load the classic Wayfarer silhouette with a range of tech-savvy features. Fitted with electrochromic lenses, wearers have full control of the tint level and can choose the ideal shade based on the conditions outside. Favorites can be saved as presets on the app and loaded in the frame for instant adjustments with a hidden button at the temple. An integrated microphone and speaker are also included to make calls or listen to music, podcasts, or audiobooks on the go, while a built-in tracking system linked with Apple's Find My tracking program ensures you'll never misplace them. Frames are available in classic black or two-tone navy and teal with either polarized black tint or polarized mirrored tine lenses.

The blade is made from sharp, durable Sandvik 12C27 steel, while the scales are crafted from black anodized aluminum, creating a handsome, functional whole.
Blade Length: 2.6" / Handle Length: 3.5" / Open Length: 6.1" / Weight: 2.8 oz.
Like a track-only version of a high-end sports car, the Awake Ravik S takes what's great about the original and turns it up a notch. Still powered by the powerful Awake Direct Drive system, its carbon fiber hull has been completely redesigned with agility in mind.

As with the Ravik, it offers four power settings to suit your riding style, an exchangeable battery for added ride time, and a wireless, handheld throttle control.
