Nightfall Fragrance Enhancing Wearable

Whatever your favorite aftershave may be, sometimes they just don’t last as long as you’d like them too. With this innovative new product, the Nightfall bracelet captures your favorite scents with just a few sprays, meaning you can smell fresh for up to seven times longer than spraying onto your skin. The design is unique, embodying the phases of the moon and whilst the colors are inspired by the sky at night, the bracelet is still fashionable and can be worn with anything.

JanSport Hatchet Special Edition

 

Personally, I’ve never given a fuck but theirs a title for the leather patch sewn on the outside of some backpacks. Turns out that patch is called “lash tab” or “pig snout”, according to Marie Claire. Historically the outdoorsmen would attach ice axes to the tab with a rope for easy access. Modern assholes may thread some earbuds through it or shoe laces for some fucking style but that totally blows the purpose of the leather tab. I wrote this post originally focused on the leather tab but while at it, I thought I share a cool backpack which your asses.

TrailNest Roof Top Hammock

TrailNest Roof Top Hammock

Hammock camping is convenient because they set up far faster than tents. The TrailNest Roof Top Hammock sets up even quicker since you don’t need to worry about hunting down two perfectly-spaced out trees. The TrailNest mounts to your car’s roof rack and deploys its two arms in an instant. Then, connect whatever fancy hammock setup you’ve got going on, with or without a rain fly and bug net (but hopefully with). While each setup is limited to 250 pounds there’s nothing stopping you from mounting multiple TrailNests to house your friends and/or significant other given a big enough roof rack, and an optional stand and ladder setup makes it easier to get up there if climbing your car is out of the question.

Victorinox Pioneer Nespresso Swiss Army Knife

Victorinox Pioneer Nespresso Swiss Army Knife

Wonder where those Nespresso pods you send off for recycling end up? A few got repurposed as part of the Victorinox Pioneer Nespresso Swiss Army Knife. Uniquely, the bronze-colored scales of the knife are made of aluminum recycled from 24 of the coffee pods, bearing a Nespresso badge on the flip side of the Victorinox logo, as well as a stamp on the base of its blade to constantly remind you. Besides the latter, the knife also bears all the same features as the classic pioneer, also including a reamer and punch, a can opener, two flathead screwdrivers, a bottle opener, and a wire stripper. Limited to a run of 750 units.

Launching shortly. Learn more at Victorinox – $55

Campfire Candle

Campfire Candle

The scents of a campfire evoke vivid memories for us. The smell of a burning Campfire Candle will, too, though it (unfortunately) won’t be accompanied by the smell of steak or perfectly roasted marshmallows. Still, this 100% soy wax candle smells just like a real life campfire, minus the actual smoke, and is perfect to light before cracking open a few cold beers with good friends. Burns for over 80 hours and comes in a small metal can.

Find it at Cool Material’s Shop – $24

Ryobi Air Conditioned Cooler

Ryobi Air Conditioned Cooler

The Ryobi Air Conditioned Cooler doesn’t just keep its contents cool: it’ll can keep you feeling refreshed in the dead of summer, too. By default it functions like a passive 50 quart cooler with an oversized handle, large wheels for trailing along, and a storage compartment for valuables. But it can also double as an air conditioner, cooling the surrounding air using the ice inside. Since it’s Ryobi it’ll also runs off of one of their battery packs for a minimum of four hours, though if you’ve got a bigger one than the P102 it comes with feel free to swap it in for even more cooling longevity.

Grab one at Home Depot – $200

Essential Phone

Essential Phone

A new device conceived by Android (yes, that Android) cofounder Andy Rubin, the Essential Phone is built on some rather lofty principles, namely openness, simplicity, quality, and choice (i.e. absence of bloatware). Its logo-less case, which comes in four colors (black, grey, white, and the aquamarine-like ocean depths) is crafted of titanium and fitted with a ceramic back so it won’t scratch, dent, or bend, even when dropped on its corner onto solid concrete. Moreover it’s got a full edge-to-edge display that hugs the bezel on three sides to outdo even the Galaxy S8 — and to fit that much more comfortably in a single hand. The hardware inside is also top-notch and includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage space, a dual monochrome and color rear camera that produces fantastic imagery even in low light, and an optional 360° camera accessory that clips on magnetically. And more accessories are on their way, amongst them the Essential Phone Dock to which the phone clicks (also magnetically) for a wireless refuelling.

Intel Compute Card

Intel Compute Card

The Raspberry Pi and Tinker Board give DIYers a good amount of computer in a tiny package. Intel’s Compute Card, though, is much closer to a fully finished product in an even-smaller form factory. About the size of a credit card (though marginally thicker), the device features Intel processors, topping out with a 7th gen Core i5 vPro, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, up to 128GB of SSD storage, and wireless connectivity that includes both WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2. Expect to see these cards built into smart monitors, mini PCs, and a docking station that takes your Compute Card and adds connectivity like USB ports, ethernet, HDMI, and more.

Jammy Portable Guitar

Jammy Portable Guitar

The guitar might be amongst the most portable of popular instruments, but that doesn’t mean much when competition includes drums and pianos. The Jammy Portable Guitar, on the other hand, is easier to lug around than a flute. This 12.6 inch long device is all neck, and telescopes to full size at nearly 20 inches long, with six steel strings on either end for a feel that’s not too far from the real thing. Its fretboard might span only 5 frets but, with the help of its companion app, can be set to the right note. A direct 3.5mm audio output means you can jam to an amp or discretely to a pair of headphones, and Jammy also offers real-time guidance by way of LED-equipped frets that beginners learning to play are bound to appreciate.

Whippet Folding Bicycle

Whippet Folding Bicycle

Designed by cycling lovers for like-minded commuters, the British-made Whippet Folding Bicycle folds a bit differently as compared to more traditional designs in the niche. For one, it boasts dual oval 25CrMo4 tubes for its frame that nestle around the front wheel when folded, compressing down to about 30% of its original volume for rolling around on its real wheel (instead of having to lift the 25 pound bike en route to the office through the building) and for super easy storage in winter, in your cubicle, and in a cramped apartment. The Whippet also uses standard 20-inch wheels, comes with an adjustable saddle and handlebar to accommodate riders of all sizes (or at least from 5′ to 6’4″), and rides comfortably on longer commutes regardless of the weather.

Fuze Card

Fuze Card

One way to slim your wallet is to ditch a bunch of cards. Another is to replace them with a Fuze Card. While it’s not the first device to consolidate your cards, it’s definitely the most promising, feature-wise, with capacity for 30 cards (of the credit, debit, loyalty, membership, or gift variety), NFC support for contactless payment, an e-paper display, and a 30 day battery life. Since it links to your smartphone you’ll get notifications if you leave it behind or if you’ve been pickpockets, and it automatically locks (or wipes, if desired) if it’s out of Bluetooth range. Buttons on the card let you select the card you want to use and it’ll also work anywhere the real card would’ve, including at an ATM.

Find it at Indiegogo – $90+

NerdChef Steel Pizza Stone

NerdChef Steel Pizza Stone

We won’t get too critical of traditional ceramic baking stones: after all, they’ve worked to make delicious, crispy pizzas for quite some centuries. But despite arguments in favor of ceramic due to moisture retention or the fact that it attains higher heat levels, it turns out that metal’s much higher thermal conductivity actually serves your pizza well, especially at the temperatures your home oven can attain (but don’t take our word for it, check out Serious Eats’ J. Kenji Lopez-Alt’s experiments). NerdChef’s Steel Pizza Stone is made of steel that’s bead blasted, sanded to a smooth finish, and seasoned with organic flaxseed oil, the latter chosen for its high smoke point. You’ll need to treat it like a cast iron pan since it’s not stainless, but it’ll reward you for your efforts with perfectly baked pizza and crispy crusts. Unlike traditional stones it’s also completely unbreakable, and it comes in 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inch thicknesses that increase in weight (and cost).

Hit up Amazon for details – $77 to $100

Centre Spin Fidget Spinner

Centre Spin Fidget Spinner

Not all fidget spinners are made equal. Like their other wares, J.L. Lawson & Co’s Centre Spin is a heirloom-quality object designed to keep your hands busy that’s both overbuilt and made start-to-finish in California. The compact, pocketable spinner unscrews to come apart into four pieces, granting access to the USA-made hybrid ceramic bearing inside for occasional cleaning to keep it spinning smoothly. Comes in either stainless steel, brass, or copper, each with a small leather pouch for storage.

DJI Spark Drone

DJI Spark Drone

By far the smallest drone coming out of the Shenzhen-based company’s factories, DJI’s Spark Drone is both simpler and smarter than its larger brethren. For one, it can be deployed on the fly without the need for a remote, launching from the palm of your hand to be controlled using nothing but hand gestures to position it just right and snap photos (namely selfies). Then, it lands back in your palm. These smart features extend to make Spark aware of its surroundings as well, avoiding obstacles and landing itself using a slew of sensors that include GPS, 3D sensors, a vision positioning system, and even its primary camera. Despite its beer can-sized body it’s still equipped with a 2-axis mechanical gimbal, four powerful motors with enough propulsion to brave strong winds and hit speeds of 31 mph, and a battery good for 16 minutes of flight time. Of course it’s also got more long range control options as well, including your smartphone (for a range of about 330 feet) and 1.2 miles with DJI’s optional HD WiFi dedicated remote, which also makes use of your smartphone as a display.

Marc Newson x Hodinkee Hourglass

Marc Newson x Hodinkee Hourglass 3

Overthought, overdesigned, and extravagant to a fault, you’ll still definitely not want to drop a Marc Newson x Hodinkee Hourglass, especially once you’ve had a peek at the price tag. The hefty, oversized borosilicate glass shape is formed using a complex choreography of torches and turning machines — and all completely by eye, no less — before being filled not with sand but with roughly 1.25 million nanoball spheres made of copper-coated stainless steel, with an added anti-corrosion layer to prevent them turning green over time. Flip it over and the nano balls run through the narrow neck to measure the passing of exactly ten minutes. The run is limited to a total of 100 numbered units that will ship in small numbers one the coming months thanks to the particularly demanding production process.

Find it at Hodinkee – $12,000

Victorinox SwissTool BS

Victorinox SwissTool BS

Stainless steel won’t oxidize in normal working conditions. But if you operate in the extremes, the Victorinox SwissTool BS multitool is for you. Its eponymous burnished — or black oxide — steel is even better protected against corrosion than standard stainless. While that mightn’t matter if it wasn’t packed with functionality, it is: the tool includes flip-out pliers, two blades (one straight, one serrated), wood and metal saws, a metal file, a chisel, wire cutters, a handful of screwdrivers, a bottle opener, and a few more totalling 29. It’s particularly well suited to stealthy all-black everyday carries.

Biki Underwater Fish Drone

Biki Underwater Fish Drone

If it doesn’t look anything like your typical drone, that’s because it isn’t. First and foremost, the Biki Underwater Fish Drone explores seas, not skies, and does so while foregoing propellers for a more natural-looking caudal tail fin that propels the drone to 1.12 mph while remaining rather silent. It’ll dive to a maximum depth of nearly 200 feet, with dual 114 lumen spotlights to illuminate its path and a stabilized 4K UHD video camera and wide-angle lens to see. Biki operates in shallow waters using a smartphone or tablet with real-time video streaming, and with a handheld sonic remote for deeper dives. About 90-120 minutes of battery life means it lasts way longer than flying drones, though if said battery runs low (or if remote communication is lost) it’ll surface, with a built-in GPS guiding it back to the launch zone for recoup.

Find it at Kickstarter – $550+ [via]

Schon DSGN Clip Pen

Schon DSGN Clip Pen

One of the best and most minimal pocket pens around is finally getting a clip in the form of Schon DSGN’s Clip Pen. The way it works is no different than the previous iteration: the 4-inch long pen’s cap unscrews and then screws onto the back, exposing the writing tip all while extending it to a more traditional length of 5.75 inches for better grip. Though the aforementioned cap now boasts a stainless steel clip secured by two T-6 torx screws, perfect for securing its position in your pants or shirt pocket. Cleverly, this clip also sticks out just enough to double as a screwdriver for the pen’s brass set screw (on the tail end) that hides grants access to the ink cartridge. And last but not least the upcoming iteration of their D1 refill adapter gives you options besides the Fisher Space Pen cartridge, including Ohto needlepoint and Pilot Hi-Tec C Slim.
