With E1, you get the convenience of a tiny action cam that fits in the palm of your hand and the quality of a professional rig that can cost into the tens of thousands.

Civilware USA Gripper Knife  

Sometimes you need a big knife to handle epic tasks while looking like Crocodile Dundee, but, let’s be honest, often times you don’t. What you need is a portable and durable knife you don’t mind having on you at all times, something like the Gripper Knife from Civilware. The low profile knife is designed to fit onto your key ring and seamlessly slip into your everyday carry. Each is cut from 1095 carbon steel and comes with a slim sheath for transport. At an overall length of just 4.25″, the Gripper Knife won’t feel like a ball and chain when slapped to your keys, and it will make quick work of so many of the tasks you encounter that don’t require your machete-like blade.

8 Things I Learned After a Month with the Apple Watch

This is not a review of the Apple Watch. I’m not going to tell you about battery life, the newfangled interface, or which apps are worth downloading. What I’m going to tell you about are bigger things: How did it change my life? What’s it really good for? Will it kill you? Because, when it comes down to it, shouldn’t every purchase improve your life? Here are 8 things I learned after a month with the Apple Watch.


The Vertical Record Player Inspired by Dinosaurs 

First it was Float from Gramovox, and now we have another turntable turning things around. TOC is a vertical record player designed by Roy Harpaz, and it was created with ease of use and clean design in mind. Inspired by the age of the dinosaurs—”T” for the Triassic period, the “C” for the Cretaceous period, and the “O” for the Jurassic period in the middle and the shape of an egg—the vinyl spinner features modern niceties like LED touch buttons and sensors that allow you to actually skip tracks. Complete with a carbon fiber brush that keeps the stylus clean and a set of bearings that allow TOC to play even warped records, the stylish turntable is as much an advanced performance piece as it is a piece of art. No word on if it will end up being produced for sale.
