The 1976 Apple computer-I can now get a custom made bespoke, midcentury luxury case it deserves!

It’s hard to imagine Steve Jobs selling his Volkswagen Type 2 Microbus to help fund and produce friend, Steve Wozniack’s hand-built and custom-designed Apple Computer-I back in 1976, but that’s how the story goes. The Apple Computer-I, more casually called Apple-I, is a desktop computer that’s hardly in circulation today due to its discontinuation with...

Gaming accessories designed to give you the ultimate immersive and gamestagram setup!

Being a gamer, one thing is true – the immersive experience provided by having a great setup amplifies the entire game and makes you really a part of the environment. And if you love gaming, you are likely to carry your game with you – be it by using a Gameboy or even gaming on your phone (hate to admit that I fall in this category!) Whatever your choice...

Carlo Ratti’s latest architectural feat is 8 tennis courts stacked in a 300ft tower!

Carlo Ratti has done it again with the Playscaper – a 300 ft tall tower that stacks eight tennis courts! In collaboration with Italo the ambitious concept makes tennis courts more accessible in urban areas where space is often an issue. What makes this more interesting is its flexible nature, Playscraper can be quickly assembled and disassembled which...

This space-grade aluminum pepper mill that peppers a steak in just 7 cranks raised over $1,000,000!

Once upon a time, it took 73 cranks on his pepper mill to season one single piece of steak. He counted, Cleve Oines that is, the founder of MÄNNKITCHEN and creator of Pepper Cannon, the new pepper mill that peppers steak with only seven cranks. Try saying all of that five times fast. Oines both designs and cooks, so he made Pepper Cannon putting quality...

The Snapods TWS Earbuds combine Airpods and MagSafe into one incredible package

Somehow, and I could be completely wrong on this one, but it feels like the MagSafe design team and the AirPods design team were stationed at two different corners of Apple’s massive headquarters. (Yes, Apple’s headquarters are circular, but you get my point) I say this because there’s a palpable lack of synergy given that the two ideas feel like a...

This astronaut-inspired PPE helmet has an air filter and even its own Bluetooth comms system!

https://ne1helmet.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/NE-1-full.mp4 Well, Jetsons didn’t get the flying car right, but they sure as hell nailed the fact that we’d need to wear helmets outdoors! Meet the NE-1, an experimental face-helmet that looks like something a bee-keeper would wear, but is in-fact protective headgear that’s both safe and comfortable...

Nomad’s iPhone 12 folio cases give you 360° protection and a card-holder without needing MagSafe

Adding a circular array of magnets around your phone just so you can snap a card-holder to the back of it seems like a lot of effort, doesn’t it? Especially when we’ve already had great card-holding cases from third-party companies all along. Nomad’s iPhone 12 folio case gives your phone all-round protection while giving you space to hold not one, but...

What if nature co-designed furniture with humans?

The inspiration behind the form of the Wild Chair is pretty unique. Imagine leaving a chair out in a forest and having nature take over it, with moss, vines, and trellises. Its solid form, being covered by interweaving branches and stems. Now remove the chair from the equation and what are you left with? The Wild Chair is the answer to that question....

This smart gardening assistant solves the millennial problem of watering your plants while globetrotting!

Taking care of new houseplants can be difficult. Mostly because we, and by we, I mean millennials, always end up bringing the tall full fern home where we imagine it cascading gently from the pot to the floor, but who are we kidding? We’re too distracted, plucking at the long leaves to hear the florist’s home instructions. It’s happened to the best...

The all-ceramic Rado wristwatch uses a minimal design to celebrate the material used

Remember the old pocket watches with the protective housing to safeguard the precious dial and the inner working mechanism? We have evolved quite far from that form factor of the very early watches – ending up with outrageous watch designs that call for attention. No doubt watch enthusiasts like owning the rarest timepieces that have a story associated...
