Though it looks like a stool designed to accommodate the bulk and girth of your mother-in-law’s back-side, this is actually a table made from vintage Japanese motorcycle parts. It was designed and built by the boys at Richmond, Virginia’s Classified Moto, creators of sick, one-off custom bikes, and cycle-themed art.

Edgar Hoover’s 48-year rule by fear, force and fraud to today, in which it’s run pretty much the same way.

This isn’t the first bike we’ve featured by master-builder Winston Yeh. From his Shop in Taiwan, Yeh continues to turn out one-of-a-kind customs.

And it’s not a museum piece, it’ll peel you off if you’re not holding on tight. Source

War is super popular these days. Its global appeal is likely the inspiration for this new line of bags from InCase. Even though they’re all designed to carry your very pedestrian electronic gadgets like laptops, smartphones, and tablets, the military styling is clearly apparent. The subdued Moss green coloring and molle-style black webbing gives them that classic soldier vibe we commuters and cubicle commandos are all secretly fiending for.
