The Hornet’s rugged design makes it the perfect introductory scooter for kids! Oversized tires take on rocks and uneven terrain, expanding its range, and because there are 4, it’s easy to stay upright and balance while riding. The narrow back half also allows for an innovative yet simplistic braking and suspension system for a smoother, safer and more controlled ride. Made of ultra-strong materials like carbon fiber and chrome steel, it’s built to withstand all the wear and tear kids can give and last for years to come!

Post-it notes. The world would be in chaos without them. Nobody would remember anything. Nobody would be able to turn their office walls into superhero murals. Nobody would be able to leave passive-aggressive messages on the doors of communal refrigerators. And nobody would be able to have the sort of epic Post-it note battle that recently took place in New York.
It all started innocently enough. An employee at Harrison and Star wrote a simple “hi” in Post-it notes on her window and waited for somebody to respond. And somebody did. They wrote “sup”. So far, so civil. But it didn’t stop there. Oh no. It was only just getting started! Both buildings host a number of marketing [...]
The Zero Degree inhaler is a modern twist on the ancient practice of aromatherapy to revitalize body and mind! Unlike slow absorption or ingestion methods, the design utilizes dry inhalation because it’s the quickest way to deliver stimulants directly to the brain. Its pocket-friendly, compact size also makes it a lot more convenient. With just a simple twist, air is able to enter through openings located at the back of the inhaler & flow past its unique blend of herbal extracts. No matter where you go, all it takes is a few deep breaths for total stress relief of the mind and calming of the body.

Not talking about the north and south poles! I’m talking about the metal poles in buses and subways. I cringe at the idea of sitting on a toilet in the winter, imagine having to hold on to a stainless steel pole for support during a subway ride! *shudder*
Anyhow, the Latch is here to save you the trouble of having to deal with the fact that ‘winter’s coming’. The Latch is just a silicone sleeve that fits over the pole. Silicone feels great to touch, and also improves one’s grip. Its insulating properties make sure you never have to deal directly with cold metal. It also comes with a hooping point, to hang your bags, umbrellas, and other paraphernalia, because holding [...]
The Concretus is the kind of speaker that becomes the topic of conversation, but it isn’t the kind you can carry around showing everyone. The reason? It’s made from concrete. Yes! The concrete used to build massive homes, malls, offices! It may seem to be an unusual choice of material, but its uniqueness lies in that very fact (Concrete isn’t new to the audio world, if you remember). Concrete in itself is a material with imperfections, but it contributes to a larger sense of aesthetics, making each product unique in a way, because each speaker has a different surface finish, different air-bubbles in different places. The controls are made out of metal, standing out like a [...]
As any Master’s student will know, a thesis isn’t just a paper. A thesis is the physical manifestation of several months of your life, and during that time both you and your thesis can end up developing a close-knit bond. It’s natural. But there’s a limit. And as you can see from these pictures, this guy went beyond that limit.
Deciding that he couldn’t bear to part with his thesis without some kind of fond farewell, 26-year-old Morris Vanegas, a student at MIT studying a duel masters in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, chose to say goodbye with a romantic photoshoot. Obviously. “To my lovely thesis, whom I had to turn into MIT today,” wrote Vanegas. “You made me a better [...]
You probably think I’m going to make an Inception reference, but I’m not! Let’s move beyond stating the obvious and talk about the Foreverspin. Our planet Earth spins at 1040 mph, but we don’t feel a thing. We just accept the fact that in 24 hours a massive orb of fire a million miles from us does a round of the sky all around the world, just to be back the next day. The Foreverspin is a spinning top that allows us to tune out the world and bring our attention to the amazing, ever-hypnotic, spinning movement. The machine milled top comes with an exquisite surface finish, and in five material variants. These materials are carefully curated for their spinning abilities. The [...]
