With Bond 25 coming up, Aston Martin is bringing back the iconic DB5 that Sean Connery drove in Goldfinger. Just like in the 1964 film, the car will come complete with working gadgets like a smoke screen, oil slick, and machine guns in the headlights. All of the gizmos are being created by the franchise's own Q, special effects supervisor Chris Corbould. Limited to just 25, this 007 ride will set you back a cool $3.5 million.

The result of five years of research, the Casper Hybrid Mattress brings springs back into the equation. The mattress-in-a-box brand typically offers all-foam models but recently they've added springs to their award-winning foam. While four layers of their signature material relieve pressure by aligning the spine, a foundation made from hundreds of fabric-wrapped coils offer zoned support and lift. With warmer months approaching, its airflow-friendly springs and open-cell foam will keep you cool at night.

Based in Brooklyn, New York, graphic designer Scott Reinhard combines vintage maps with elevation data to create stunning pieces of art. Reinhard uses a chromogenic process to create each print, which takes traditional color photography development and integrates 3-dimensional data with paper maps for a result that is so visually appealing, you'll be tempted to reach out and feel what looks like 3D texture. The process brings the maps to life, creating a 2D print that is vibrant and detailed giving you a unique work of art that blends history and modern technology. In addition to the topographic maps, Reinhard creates compelling digitally rendered maps and has even adopted his technique to the surface of the moon.

Director Ari Aster took the horror genre in a new direction in 2018 with Hereditary and looks to do the same again with his new film Midsommar. Eschewing the dark look typical of most horror films, Midsommar has a bright, softly lit style to it, and takes place during summer — certainly not the look we're used to. Once every 90 years, a nine-day festival takes place in a Swedish hamlet. What begins as an idyllic getaway quickly becomes a game of survival at the hands of a pagan cult. The film comes to theaters on July 3, 2019.
