Drop the camera once and it’s done. The lightweight plastic and aluminum body is no match for pavement impact. But instead of getting hosed on the ridiculously over-priced extended warranty, look into Camera Armor. The protective skin works just like the case you have on your phone: absorbs shock, while giving you access to all the buttons, ports and controls you need.
Car dudes, don’t worry. This is not the actual nose of a Shelby Cobra 427. The two-man design team at Poland’s LA Design Studio know better. The body panels they use for their 427 Collection of custom, Cobra-inspired furnishings are actually reproductions made to exact specs from raw aluminum. Complete with factory-correct headlights, chrome accents and hardware, they’re built to inspire, not infuriate. We repeat, no Cobras are harmed in the making of this furniture.

It’s a sick and tragicomic look into the seedy world of gambling. Are you in?

The two have now combined forces to create a special edition 25’ Airstream camper outfitted for sporty, rugged adventures from sea to shining sea.
If you run out of impressive things to talk about, you can say it’s a souvenir from the plane crash you survived. It does look pretty real. With the polished aluminum patchwork, exposed screwheads and a fat 78” width, it’s nearly true to scale. This time, your tall tale might actually fly.
You like bikes. Cafés, chops, street trackers, customs … they’re all good. Bike EXIF is the place you’ll find your daily dose of cycle culture and 2-wheeled perversion. They’ve made a great calendar of the year’s best bikes. Sorry, there are no bikini-clad vixens, but there are also no OC Choppers. It’s a fair trade if you ask us. Just this once.
A fusion of minimalist refinement and structural precision gives British designer, Miranda Watkins’, creations a look of distinction. Her “Martini” travel cocktail set, commissioned for a Wallpaper Magazine exhibition, combines pewter & cork in an elegant outcome.
Even if you agree that neither Jay Leno or Conan O’Brien are even the least bit funny, you might still get a kick out of this exposé chronicling the battle between the two late night goofs.
