4moms Origami Stroller
People asked me “what was the craziest thing you saw at CES?” The week was a blur but I think it was this.
Also, I work at The Verge now.
This is something I need. Desperately. I loose my keys AND my phone in my apartment all the time, though almost never at the same time. The Cobra Tag covers all your bases. If you lose your keys your smartphone can help you find them. If you lose your phone your keys can make it ring.
This is probably the best thing ever.
As is tradition, the bride and groom exchanged gifts prior to the wedding. While Matthew purchased Emily the watch that she had always wanted. Emily commissioned a custom ring for Matthew’s shooting hand (as opposed to for his wedding band). This one of a kind band has the depth of field scale from his favorite lens, the .95 Noctilux. On the sides, the ring features both Matthew’s name and The Leica Guy moniker on one side, and the Lens information including name, filter size, and serial number on the other.
This is amazing.
Solar Powered Bikini
The solar powered bikini pictured above is wearable power… kind of. Really it is a completely impractical bit of wearable power. I mean, lets think about it logically. If you are trying to harness the power of the sun why would you use an article of clothing with the least amount of material/surface area?
Also, I don’t think you can go in the water in something that is sewn together with “conductive thread.” The whole thing is impractical. I’m all for wearable power, anything to keep my phone from dying but the whole thing just doesn’t add up.
(Side note, this picture was taken in 14th Street Park at 15th street and 10th avenue in New York. ((you can tell by the design on the top of the fence and you can see a bit of the High Line just past the building… I worked near there for a year and a half.)) No one goes there to sunbathe.)
Inspired by Back to the Future 2. Honestly if they can shrink that motor they’re onto something.
Roc Nation Aviator Headphones
Available in your choice of three different colors, the Aviators sport a foldable design and an “optics-inspired” polycarbonate speaker housing, along with a pair of 40mm full-range mylar drivers with neodymium magnets, and a tangle-free nylon cable complete with an in-line mic and controls.
I’ll take a pair in white please. No price yet just listed as “June.” Love the addition of the in-line mic and controls. That’s what really sold it for me… well that coupled with how sexy they look.
