Before the Dyson guy came along nobody cared about the vacuum cleaner. But now that this brand has made them look cooler and elevated the performance of this ho-hum chore with the introduction of cyclonic suction, we need one. The DC39 is a compact little unit with all manner of advanced engineering plus it can suck peanut butter through a garden hose or some other equally amazing equivalent.
Although Deus is headquartered in Australia, this Sportster-based custom called The American was actually built by an American named Michael Woolaway who works right here in the USA. With a look combining café racer and classic street-tracker design, this Harley-powered leg burner is a great example of an American-made custom that looks nothing like your dad’s hog.
Only a sucker would transfer & store important data on the wack little plastic thumbdrives they were giving out at the trade show. Step it up. Sony’s Micro Vault MACH thumbdrives are a much better idea. They’re made of sturdy, styley brushed aluminum and with 120 MB/s reads and 90 MB/s writes they’re probably faster than the ones you’re using now.
Some crazy bastard once said “art is whatever you can get away with.” These Beatty pendulum lights are a perfect example of that idea. The light’s steel sheet shades are perforated with a blast from a shotgun. Yup, you read that right. A shotgun blast.
You use your iPhone for everything, so why not set it up as a cycling computer, too? Using technology from ANT+, the Wahoo Bike Pack includes a bar-mounted, waterproof case for your iPhone and a wireless speed and cadence sensor. Linked up with Wahoo Fitness App, it tracks all your fitness data: power, bike speed, heart rate, etc., plus it connects wirelessly to any other ANT+ devices you’re already using.
What red-blooded, used-to-smoke-a-little-pot, college-kid-at-heart dude isn’t charmed by an old Volkswagen camper bus? It is the original hippy-hotel on wheels. The thing is, driving one on the freeway is risking certain death. The Dub Box solves this dilemma. By turning the fun end of a VW bus into a plush, custom trailer, they allow you to hit the road with your own little compact pop-top VW camper in tow while still driving a vehicle with safety features like airbags and anti-lock brakes.
The Three Stooges were and always will be the undisputed kings of slapstick. If you’re down with Moe, Larry, and Curly, heck, even that greasy-haired goon Shemp, you’d be a knucklehead not to pick up The Three Stooges: The Ultimate Collection from Sony Pictures. It includes 18 discs with every one of their classic shorts fully-restored plus two discs of bonus material. Due out June 2012.
Did you know that there was an actual Heuer family behind the TAG Heuer watch brand? It’s true, Edouard Heuer began this luxury legacy way back in 1860. One hundred and four years later, in 1964, a young Jack Heuer designed and introduced the Carrera chronograph. To honor Jack’s 80th birthday this year, the brand is releasing a limited edition Carrera model featuring a 41mm case and Jack’s signature engraved in the caseback.
Anyone can walk into a pet store and come out with an aquarium filled with freaky fishes, but are you just “anyone”? Obviously not. For you, something exotic, like a jellyfish tank seems more apropos. And you can’t just walk out of the store with it. You order the tank and set it up, then return to the brand’s website with your jellyfish voucher and they send you one large and two small Moon Jellyfish via overnight express. Who else has one of these?
In the minds of high performance auto enthusiasts, open roof cars are just plain corny unless of course you’re talking about F1. But Lamborghini doesn’t care about them, the guys who buy Lambos are in it for the chicks. Hollywood lawyers, Hip Hop moguls, Russian politicians; those guys. They’ll love the new Aventador J, an aggressively angular 700-horse open roof coupe that goes nearly 200-mph.
