Grilling season is officially here but you know what they’ve been saying about those old summertime staples: burgers & dogs. Seafood is probably a better choice and when you do it right—like skewering up some shrimp and veggies, you may never go back to the old tube steak.
By now you know that the earbuds you got for free with your phone aren’t quite cutting it. For running, hiking, biking, and the like, Westone’s ALPHA crossover headphones are built to perform. They’re weather resistant, featuring a replaceable reflective cable with a 3-button control system and mic.
Biking to work is a good thing, unless you hit a few puddles or catch a rain shower on the way. Then you spend the rest of the day with a sketchy brown stripe running up your back. Ass Savers are little click-on fenders that mount to your saddle to prevent mud butt. They’re made of recyclable PP plastic and weigh only 15 grams.
After 30 years as the frontman for Iron Maiden, it’s safe to assume that Bruce Dickinson knows a thing or two about beer. But in creating their signature Trooper ale, the band didn’t just license the logo for a beer label. Dickinson actually worked to develop the classic English Ale with the experts at Robinsons, a 175 year-old UK brewer. Available late summer in the USA.
To create the new Galaxy S4 Zoom, Samsung took an Android 4.2-powered smartphone and grafted it onto a 16-megapixel point & shoot with a 10X zoom. With this thing, you might be able to win Instagram without buying followers. Available late 2013.
This thing will turn your garage into a service station. The space-saving, ceiling-mounted unit offers a retractable 25-foot utility cord, an on-demand air pump, and a hands-free 100-watt LED work light for tackling all those weekend projects.
The Buoy Chair moves like you do. It tilts one way then another, it swivels; it leans in, leans back. Whatever you’re comfortable with. You can adjust the height and carry it around by the handles. It’s available in 6 colors with 25 fabric options for the seat.
Finnish people know how to keep warm. First they invented the sauna, now they’ve redesigned the axe to make splitting firewood a cinch. When you strike the log, the unique design of the axe head automatically detaches the chopped portion of wood. End result: you’ll actually look like you’ve done this before.
PS4 is coming. You’ll have to wait a few more months but currently there are over 140 games in development optimized for the new system’s x86 processor, with its 8-core combined CPU/GPU, & 8 GB of unified GDDR5 memory. Translation: sick graphics, instant boots from sleep mode, etc. The PS4 will also offer all the multimedia options you need via Sony’s Video Unlimited service and unlike Xbox One, it’ll support used games.
Made of lightweight, waterproof Amphibiskin fabric and backed by adventurer Bear Grylls, the Glider is a tarp slash camping shelter that also happens to work as a drinking water retention system. It’s the first shelter to offer you a drink; a design that integrates raingutters into the corners, allowing you to attach 4 water bottles at a time for collecting drinkable rainwater.
