We love the advances taking place in solar technology. Powermonkey’s Explorer is easily the most unique, versatile & rugged portable charger we’ve seen thus far. It’s in the details. A Velcro strap attaches to your pack for charging on-the-go. The rubberized covering protects against the inevitable spill. An LED display reveals battery capacity & level-of-charge. Compatible with most portables, of course this one snagged a Red Dot in 2010.
The Navy Chair was designed by Emeco for its United States namesake in 1944. Coca-Cola collaborated with the design house for the production of the vintage-inspired 111. Manufactured from recycled Cola bottles, each chair salvages the triple ones bringing new meaning to “Always Coca-Cola.”
Skinny dipping just became a video option. KODAK’s Playsport is waterproof up to 10 feet. With 1080p HD recording, image stabilization & compact form factor, this cam gives you everything you need for filming life – wherever it takes you.
Mobile devices are great for catching a flick during your boss’ weekly, inspirational “meeting” or for keeping the kids happy during the journey to grandma’s. But the small screen makes your eyes water after an hour or so. If you find yourself needing movies on the go & lust after something that can handle 720p HD video with a tastier screen than your iPhone – consider the Cowon V5. A slick user interface housed within a 4.8″ touch screen coupled with classic looks makes it melt in your hands.
This one brings a nostalgic smile to the face of every GenXer. Hand-crafted of walnut, maple & cherry, the PacMan Cutting Board is assembled with FDA-approved, water-proof glue & treated with mineral oil and beeswax. 80s yearning with every slice and dice.
My parents met at a Stones concert in 1965. This one’s for them. Exile on Main St. stands as one of the greatest albums of all time. Pressed on vinyl & CD, the Super Deluxe Edition includes 18 remastered originals along with 10 unreleased tracks, 30-minute documentary DVD & 50-page photo-book. This is the holy grail.
Need a pick-me-up from last night? A McClure’s Bloody Mary is the cure. Base flavoring extracted from cayenne and habanero spicy pickles with tomato paste & fresh pressed cucumber juice. If this mix doesn’t cure you, it will at least help you feel better by supporting a family-run business where every jar is hand-packed, cucumbers hand-sliced & labels, printed with soy and vegetable ink by wind-powered electricity.
