That good looking show pictured above is the Oliver Cabell Phoenix Sneaker. Not only does it look nice, it is also made from repurposed plastic water bottles. The water bottles are washed, shredded, melted, and made into a plastic-yarn that is 3D printed for the shoes upper. The Phoenix sneakers are machine washable and are avilable in black or white.

Folding laundry seems like a neverending task, one that I am quite good at, but it takes quite a bit of time. I love the idea of a laundry folding robot, like the Foldimate, however, I am a bit of a skeptic. I mean, heck, my work copier only has to deal with perfectly flat paper and it jams on the daily.

Time will tell if this $1,000 Foldimate laundry folding machine will work as good as the demo video. I sure hope so. Check out the video after the break. (more…)

This jewel is from the folks at Sportsman’s Guide, and they can be yours for just $45. A bulletproof vest makes sense, for sure, but you should also protect your bits as well. If nothing else you could spice things up in the bedroom. “When you’re in the heat of battle, these British Military Surplus Blast Shorts will keep you and future generations safe from dangerous...

Sure, technically it is a “coin purse” that has a couple of snaps so you can clip it on to your backpack or belt. But the EASYANT Coin Purse ($39) is also a “skull thumper” or self defense weapon similar to the old soap in the sock trick. You get the idea. ...

I guess people really want self-tying shoes. Nike is already on their second generation of the HyperAdapt self-tying shoe. Now Puma is joining the field with their own self-tying shoes named “Fi” (Fit Intelligence). The Puma Fi shoes adapt to the owners feet when they swipe the top of the shoe’s tongue. Inside this elevated tongue is a micrometer that activates a pair of cables for tightening the shoe. If you like your shoes tighter or looser, you can adjust them through a Puma smartphone app or Apple Watch. ...

Tenacious Tape Repair

How can you argue with a product named Tenacious Tape? I bought some of this “tenacious tape” months ago and recently had an opportunity to try it out in real life. Read on for the story of how I saved my jacket from the trashcan. (more…)

Creo Cosmic Omega Speedmaster Professional Watch

I have been lusting after the Omega Speedmaster watch for quite sometime (5 years to be exact). This latest Speedmaster rendition, the Creo Cosmic Omega Speedmaster Professional, was built to celebrate the six Apollo moon landings. It is a very limited release (6pcs worldwide), will cost $4,950, and can be customized with your color choices. The watch dial is hand-painted with tiny colorful specs which represent the nights sky.  (more…)

The leaks and rumors were pretty accurate this year. Apple launched a handful of new phones packed with new technology and some new colors. Oh, and some awful naming conventions (XS, XR, and XS Max). They also launched the Series 4 Watch with a 35% larger screen while both the 40 and 44mm are thinner. The backs of the watches are a thing of beauty and are made of sapphire crystal and black ceramic. Apple has also managed to add much more information (complications) the the face of the screen. The Series 4 Watch has doubled down on health...

This watch, which likely costs more than your house, has been in the making for four years. It is a collaboration between Richard Mille and Sylvester Stallone. The RM25-01 would certainly make Rambo proud, assuming he has $983,000. The Richard Mille 25-01 Tourbillon Adventure Watch has a 50.85 bezel, wild tourbillon movement, 24-hour time display, a chronograph, and is made of titanium and Carbon TPT. You can dive down to 100 meters but...
