Nostalgia, it seems to be the foremost theme in camera design these days. The Pentax K-01 is no exception. If it weren’t for the 16 MP optical sensor and full HD video capture capabilities, you might think this thing took film. Lucky for your wallet it doesn’t, it does however take all K-mount lenses making it quite the versatile little weapon.
There are loads of portable speaker systems out there to choose from. Few of them are as original as the Bag Of Rhythm from House Of Marley.

The dock will play and charge iPhones and iPods and the Aux input lets you plug in just about any other audio device. Built as a totebag, you can just throw it over you shoulder and take the party anywhere.
That annoying British chef with the stupid mop of blond hair loads his pancakes down with stuff like walnuts, organic kiwi, and carob chips, but who really eats that crap?

Some people head to the mountains for skiing and snowboarding to disconnect. Yeah, these people actually want to get away from talking on their phones. For the rest of us, there’s a new gizmo called the Speakgoggle that will help seamlessly and simply combine Bluetooth phone conversations and skiing.

Take that, recluses.
Originally designed for rescue and response operations, the Phibian is an all-terrain beast that hits highway speeds on land and does 30-mph on water and it’s perfectly road and sea legal. The Phibian will also carry 15 passengers or 3300 hundred pounds of cargo. If you’ve been dreaming about building a cabin somewhere out on a remote island, add this high speed amphibian to your wishlist, it will come in handy.
The Cinch is better than the standard SLR camera strap for two reasons. It features quick-adjusting pull tabs that let you crank it down tight or loosen it up to get the shot with one easy pull of the strap. The other improvement is that instead of using your camera’s two top strap mounting brackets, the Cinch mounts to only one and the other connector goes though the tripod mount which keeps the camera in a more natural and easier-to-carry position against your body. If you tote a big, heavy camera around, you’ll want this.

You might buy a pair of Well Rounded Sound speakers based just on their looks. Nothing in their line of compact, high-quality speakers comes hidden away in a boring black box. No, their rounded speaker enclosures are made of a recyclable composite material and covered with colorful New Zealand wool felt or natural wood veneers. And they’re not just pretty. They’ve got high-output drivers, classic paper cones with aluminum phase plugs and they thump. Even the smallest ones.
