The Audi quattro Experience is a one-of-a-kind interactive installation that features a 20-foot by 7-foot, handcrafted raceway built by custom slot track builder David Beattie of Slot Mods USA. The scale model Audi A4 slot cars were made from scratch with in-car cameras that allow racers a first-person look as they zip around the track, through the world's first iPad-enabled controllers. Here's a behind-the-wheel look at how David and his team raced to get this project finished.
The inspirational story of two brothers who bonded over sports will leave few with a dry eye. With Cayden having been diagnosed with cerebral palsy at 14 months old, Conner has pulled his little brother behind him in a raft while he swims, towed him in a trailer behind his bike, and pushed him across the finish line while competing in 14 triathlons. Their hard work and love for each other is what earned them the title of the 2012 Sports Illustrated Kids SportsKids of the Year.
Now in its 5th generation, the Maratec LED Flashlight is small, light, and an ideal addition to your EDC. It's powered by a AAA battery and uses a Nichia 219 emitter that puts off smooth, neutral light, helped along by an aluminum alloy orange peel reflector. Three power settings let you dial in the right amount of light while conserving battery, and an improved clip keeps it handy. Its hand-finished body is made from black anodized aluminum or solid copper billet stock.

Daniel Craig's direct hand in shaping the wardrobe for James Bond has been well documented, and his earliest influence on the modern Bond style is reflected in the Sunspel Riviera polo. Worn by Craig in the early moments of Casino Royale while in the Bahamas, the polo was hand-selected for the film after being pulled from Sunspel's archives and altered to a more modern silhouette. Originally designed by the owners of Sunspel in the 1950s to be worn in the heat of the French Riviera, the mesh fabric was custom developed to provide the maximum amount of cooling to the wearer. Almost an oversized piqué, the fabric is truly unique and now instantly recognizable thanks to Bond. It's cut short and comfortably trim, and is always meant to be worn untucked. Available in black, white, and navy (as worn in Casino Royale), and now in a Limited Edition Melange Grey, the same color as the Sunspel T-shirt Craig wears as 007 in the same film. Originally meant to be released in conjunction with No Time to Die, the Limited Edition colorway will most likely be gone before the movie hits theaters in November.
