The Mute Watch - totally blown away by this. Very cool
Nest: The Learning Thermostat
This has been going around the web like wildfire today, so you’ve probably already seen it and thus I’ll spare you too many of the details. But, I have to say that this new Nest thermostat, created and designed by ex-iPod lead, Tony Fadell, is certainly doing to thermostats what the iPhone did for cell phones.
It’s pretty, it’s smart, and it’s eco-friendly (which in turn, makes it wallet-friendly). Once installed, the device learns your temperature preferences over the course of a week and then will auto-adjust given your habits. You can also control it through your smart phone so that you can do things like turn off the A/C while you’re on vacation. And, apparently it’s as easy to install as a light fixture.
So, will I be ordering one? I wish :( Unfortunately (or…fortunately?) the weather in San Francisco is cool enough year-round that we don’t have a need for air conditioning. But, for all of you across the rest of the country - and especially those friends and family of mine in Texas - I highly encourage that you check it out.
Interesting new concept vehicle for the replacement of the Land Rover Defender. Massive change from what it is now
Put some fun (and aggression?) into your cooking with the Karate Chopper fruit and vegetable knife ($12). Or, as I like to call it, Not-Yo-Grandma’s cutting knife. (Unless of course your grandma is hip and awesome.)
Also amazing? The “Shredder Cheese Grater” - a cheese grater in the shape of an electric guitar. Maybe THIS will get my husband into the kitchen…
Jaguar has announced plans to build a limited run of its stunning C-X75 supercar in conjunction with the Williams F1 team. - Very cool, comes with a petrol engine and 4 electric motors. Sadly they dropped the jet engines that were in the original concept car for the petrol engine. :)
Man quits job, travels 60,000 miles to shoot 37,000 images of the night sky, then stitches them together to create a 360 degree interactive map of the night sky
I’m sorry, I can’t restrain myself. This one seriously made me laugh out loud.
Seriously, click around the store. There are some real winners in there.
