Volkswagen brought their I.D. R electric race car to the 2018 Pikes Peak hill climb with one mission — to smash the previous record in the Unlimited class. And smash they did, setting a new record over 15 seconds faster than the one set in 2013 by a gas-powered turbocharged Peugeot. Watch the entire record-breaking run from a birds-eye helicopter view — even the helicopter has a hard time keeping up.
American legend Evel Knievel passed away in 2007, and the void he left has yet to be filled — until now. Travis Pastrana has raced everything from NASCAR's Bush series to the American Rally Championship, but his love has always been motorcycles. Now, he's recreated three of Evel's most popular jumps — the fountain at Caesar's Palace, 52 crushed cars, and 16 Greyhound buses, all while riding a custom Indian motorcycle.
The catalyst for change for runners, the latest edition of the pioneering adidas' Ultraboost 21 features even more energy return than its predecessor. Each pair is built with a Linear Energy Push which provides a 15% increase in forefoot bending stiffness for added responsiveness. There's also more Boost cushioning for added energy return during your run that leads to more energy in all aspects of your life. The Primeknit+ upper offers a more precise knit; 50% of the upper is textile, and 75% of that is made from Primeblue, a recycled material containing at least 50% Parley Ocean Plastic. Available in several colorways, they're finished with a Stretchweb outsole made using Continental rubber.

Milk Bar's cake truffles are a thing of beauty. The bite-sized balls of magic are a masterful mix of chewy cake, sweet white chocolate, and a crunchy topping. For those who can't visit one of the bakery's locations on the regular, founder and chef Christina Tosi demonstrates how to make her signature treat with a refreshing summer twist.
When you think of surfing destinations, you think California, Hawaii, Australia — not NYC's East River. But sometimes you can't get away to a surfer's paradise and just have to use what you got. Casey Neistat did just that when he got a group of friends together for some Independence Day powerboarding on one of the smelliest rivers in the US.
The Club Campus family is one timepiece stronger and much sportier after the 2019 Baselworld announcement of the Club Sport. The Nomos timepiece expands the Club line with a new in-house automatic movement, and an unexpected all-new steel bracelet. Departing from the watchmaker's norm of only using leather and fabric straps, the steel bracelet is crafted in-house with 145 individual parts and an elegant deployment clasp. The watch also has an impressive 300 meters of water-resistance, a screw down crown, and a dark marine black dial with numerals, hands, and typography that are loaded with Super-Luminova — ensuring you're more than prepared for your next trip underwater. A red ring on the inside of the crown acts as a visible warning if it's not secure before you dive beneath the surface. Small seconds and date complication round out the timepiece, and the neomatik date caliber is protected by domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating inside and out. The Club Sport might be one of the toughest Nomos timepieces to date, and a versatile blend of a dress, dive, and everyday watch with a sporty feel.
Case Diameter: 42mm / Case Height: 10.2mm / Weight: 2.19 oz / Water Resistance: 30 ATM / Glass: Domed Sapphire Crystal / Lug Width: 20mm

BioWare took home the award for Best Action Game from the 2018 E3 conference with its first new IP in 20 years Anthem. Now, instead of cinematics and descriptions, BioWare has released a 20-minute gameplay demo. The demo details the inner workings of combat, travel, customization, loot, and multiplayer systems, giving a good idea of what to expect when the game releases in early 2019.
Humans are social creatures, and while solitude can be good for everyone, too much can be extremely harmful. One way we've learned about isolation is by solitary confinement in prison. The effects of solitary are well-known — mental issues, violence, and hallucinations — and have also been studied with primates in the lab. LifeNoggin looks at what happens when we're alone too much, and what that teaches us about ourselves.
