You could wrap buffalo chicken in anything—a piece of newspaper if you had to—and it would still be a tasty treat. So you’ll believe us when we tell you that instead of just eating it on pizza, you should also pack it in to your grilled cheese sandwich. Why not?
When prying open beers with the corner edge of your iPhone you risk cracking the glass. But not any more. The Intoxicase is a polycarbonate case for your iPhone 4/4s with a built-in onboard bottle opener. The upgraded Intoxicase Plus offers a slick fold-out opener and both come with a dedicated App that tracks your beer data, like the number of bottles opened, quantity consumed, hell, it’ll even call you a cab.
This lamp is the bomb. Sorry, had to say it. Does anyone still use that phrase? The Blitz Bomb lamp is made from a WWII-era surplus MK23 bombshell. The teardrop-shaped bomb is polished to a shine then sealed against rust and features a classic cloth wrapped cord. Without a shade, the lamp stands just over 10-inches tall and will not explode.
A little discretion goes a long way for the drinking man. Take this Amish style end table for example. What mother-in-law would guess that beneath its smooth wooden exterior is a beer fridge big enough to get you and a couple of your buds through a bowl game? No need to get up and go to the fridge during sudden death overtime, just open the Mantable. Comes in the three finishes: tobacco, espresso, and black to blend with any décor.
The Bomb Runner is a fully customized Harley Sportster from the soon-to-be-legendary custom garage Rough Craft, based in Taiwan. Builder Winston Yeh turns a 2011 Sporty Forty-Eight 1200 into a bulked-up beast of a bike. He takes the best of classic craft, Japanese Brat Style, custom fabrication, and high performance power and blends them into bikes like this one here. Nobody would dare call this Sportster “the chick’s Harley.” Source
For most of us, the only hardcover book we’d buy on Tiger Woods might be a pictorial of the legions of scandalous women he enjoyed in his darkest days. But if you actually care about Eldrick Tont “Tiger” Woods the golfer, this book by his coach of six years, Hank Haney, will provide great insights into the life of a young superstar who was once called “the greatest athlete ever.”
With their functional, minimalist styling, you really don’t have to be a pilot to appreciate Bell & Ross watches. However, if you’ve spent any time in the cockpit, you’ll truly appreciate the design of their Horizon wristwatch. Modeled after a plane’s horizon gauge, their nod to aviation heritage is unmistakable. Available May 2012.
Outside North America, in places like Europe and Asia, people have been driving the compact and classy Mercedes A-Class for years. For some unknown reason (maybe the embarrassing popularity of vehicles like Hummers and Ford Expeditions) Mercedes never imported these pint-size Benzos to the U.S. market. But things have changed and soon one A-Class model will be available in the U.S. It’s a compact, entry-level hatchback but make no mistake, this little guy is packed with all the technology and refined features that make it a bonafide Benz.
With a name that was once mocked as Apple’s entry into “feminine hygiene products,” the iPad has become yet another of the brand’s ubiquitous, can’t-live-without-it devices. Just a couple hours ago, Apple announced the release of their third-generation iPad. Apple’s website is calling it simply the New iPad. The greatest advancements in this new version are in the display. Driven by a smoking new A5X chip, powering 3.1 million pixels, it is hands down the sharpest, most high definition display ever. It is literally four-times better than the iPad2. The new iSight camera is also a major upgrade. We could go on but we know you just want to see the video. It’s all pretty awesome, try not to hemorrhage.
What happened to sports car design? Back in the ’50s the lightweight, open roof LeMans racers had class, they had personality. Driving was a breathtaking experience. If that nostalgic style is more inspiring to you than some computerized European luxury landyacht, the little Barchetta from Dutch duo, Huet Brothers looks pretty sweet. This 2-seater’s got a snappy in-line 6 and no babyseat anchors.
