I just discovered Method’s Ocean Plastic Soap Bottle. It’s the world’s first bottle made with a blend of recovered ocean plastic and post-consumer recycled plastic, a combination that results in a uniquely gray resin.
How fantastic is this? How much do I love this brand?
Admittedly, we were first seduced by Sweeteeth's irreverent packaging for their “Call of the Wild” port wine caramel chocolate bar, but once unwrapped it became immediately clear that the contents inside were also worth a healthy drool. While “Call of the Wild" oozes with sticky sweet caramel for an indulgence that is best shared (and may inspire a little mating of your own), the other two bars we tried from John Eric Battles—the Charleston, SC-based chocolatier behind Sweeteeth—downplays the sugar in favor of spicier concoctions. "Cinnapsis" is a crunchy blend of dark milk chocolate, dried apples, candied pecans and cinnamon, while "PB+C" combines dark and milk chocolate for the silky shell, which is filled with natural peanut butter, cocoa butter and chipotle peppers, and is topped off with pink Himalayan sea salt.
Few cameras command the sort of cult attention that follows the Ricoh GR. With four digital versions to date, the fifth—announced today and simply named the GR—looks only to enshrine this status. The advanced compact category is full of point-and-shoots that come in around the $900 mark, with nearly every major manufacturer hoping to find a holy grail model that will marry portability and performance. The new GR comes as close as any we’ve seen.
To start, the body is structurally stunning. Even more discreet than the minimalist style of theNikon Coolpix A, the GR seems to be hoping to beat competitors at their own game. A slightly pebbled finish on the metal body adds grip, which is helpful given that the GR is lighter than it looks—there’s nothing worse than accidentally flinging your camera when you go to frame a shot
The Lego Block Bag is a scale replica made from yellow 100% cotton denim which has an unbleached creamy yarn running through it. Little flecks of cream and brown give the denim a lovely variation throughout the surface. Dimension: Height = 6 3/4”- 17 cm; Width = 9 1/2” - 24 cm; Depth = 4 1/4” - 11 cm
In 2010 Recon released the world’s first Heads-Up-Display-enabled snow sport goggles, capable of displaying real-time statistics like speed, altitude, time and temperature on a full-color micro LCD screen. Now, three years later, the innovative company introduces a faster, smaller, more advanced version of the Heads-Up Display (HUD) on a specifically engineered pair of polarized sunglasses. Driven by a miniaturized dual core processor, the Jet features everything from Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ANT+ and GPS to a high-def camera, dedicated graphics and a comprehensive suite of location-based sensors. Essentially, the Jet is as powerful—if not more so—than your iPhone.
