If it weren’t for the superheroes dreamed up in the 1930s for the pages of early DC Comics, Hollywood would’ve dried up and blown into the Mojave by now. At 416 pages, The Golden Age of DC Comics (1935-1956) is one in a series from Taschen Books that explores the origins of comics’ most enduring legends like Superman, Batman, & Wonder Woman.

Inexpensive but not quite a dime-a-dozen, the ATC Chameleon from Oregon Scientific captures 1920 x 1080 HD 3D video & features a pair of 170º lenses—one on each end of the camera—that can be rotated 180º by hand for simultaneous dual views.
Forget about outfits for every occasion, the luggage you really need for that holiday trip back home is this Italian leather bar-in-a-box from luggage maker Tumi and the distillers of Ketel One.

The X132 Hellcat Combat is not the type of two-wheeled roadboat to answer the urge of that mid-life Easy Rider fantasy. This thing is built around the fastest big block V-twin motor ever.

It may not be a lifesaver like soap-on-a-rope is for jailbirds, but there’s no denying that this is a good idea. What else can be done with those gross little slivers of soap that nobody wants to touch? The design of the Stack bar features a cradle to host your shrunken sliver, giving it place to live out its final days and eliminating waste.
For the classic Swiss Army brand Victorinox, clever functions are a part of everything they make. Integrated into the case of the Night Vision model is a trio of LED lights. With a push of the button a blue light illuminates the face, another push and you get a bright-white flashlight, 2 pushes and a red battery-sensor/find-the-watch-in-the-dark light begins to pulse.
