Plastic is everywhere. It's in packaging, action figures, drink bottles, and once we're done with them, they go to lay in a landfill for close to eternity. Concerned by the environmental hazard and the mass consumerism behind, Rhode Island artist Thomas Deininger turned his anxieties into inspiration and began using the waste material as a medium for his three-dimensional sculptures.
The third season of Stranger Things is the biggest yet. The story, the locations, the stakes — they're all bigger than ever. This means you need the best VFX. Here's a before-and-after reel that shows how big Netflix went for the third season.
The MA-1 silhouette got its start in the mid-1950s when it became the flight jacket of the U.S. Air Force, Navy pilots, and ground crews. The originals removed the fur collar of the B-15 which came before it due to interference with parachute harnesses. This bomber adds to the legendary jacket's history with poly-fill, orange lining, and a modern cut for a slim fit. Details include two lower flap pockets, two interior welt pockets, as well as a utility pocket on the sleeve and knit ribbing on the collar, cuffs, and waistband. The timeless look is finished with a signature red "Remove Before Flight" flag and is available in black or olive.
Living an active lifestyle doesn't have to mean protecting your iPhone with an unsightly, thick case. Nomad's Active Rugged option uses a DuPont polycarbonate frame, rubber TPE bumper, and microfiber lining to swaddle and protect your device. Its back, meanwhile, is covered in naturally-tanned water-resistant leather from Heinen in Germany. It's both more sophisticated than most plastic options and more resistant to scratches and scuffs than typical leather. The case is fully Qi-compatible for wireless charging, has a thick bumper to protect against drops up to 6 feet, and has reinforced speaker ports that double as lanyard attachment points.
