A special edition whiskey available for a limited time, Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select has been created to honor Frank Sinatra’s fifty-year friendship with Jack Daniel’s. It turns out Sinatra was a big fan of the Jack Daniel’s brand and this latest whiskey offering is an homage to the two American icons. It’s been “matured in proprietary oak barrels for a bold flavor, timeless character and exceptional smoothness” and the vessel in which it comes in itself is unique: taller and sleeker than a traditional JD whiskey bottle with a weighted base, an embossed metal shoulder label, and a Jack Daniel’s Country Club logo that was created by Frank himself. The bottle and the liquor both seek to reflect Sinatra’s sleek and stylish look and his timeless good taste, and it appears they have succeeded. You’ll be able to get your hands on your very own bottle of Sinatra Select in the coming months from high-end retail stores and major airports worldwide, so be on the lookout.
Designed to withstand the elements encountered by those in Law Enforcement and the Armed Forces (that’s what LEAF stands for), the Atom SV Hoody Multicam by Arc’teryx LEAF will keep you warm and dry even when you really shouldn’t be.
It’s a mid weight insulated hood style jacket that provides ultimate core warmth, no matter how adverse the weather conditions. It’s your perfect companion whatever the challenge, be it “special recon tasks, rotary wing aircraft mounted or ground mobility vehicle mounted direct assault tasks,” you name it.
The Atom SV is incredibly light and breathable, and utilizes Arc’teryx-developed Coreloft™ insulation, which has a very high warmth-to-weight ratio and the advantage of retaining its warmth when wet. The insulation structure is also resilient enough to resist compacting so it can be stored and returned to full loft repeatedly without sacrificing performance.
To put it bluntly: it’s one bad-ass jacket.
If exploring the outdoors is your thing and you need something to fuel your passion – literally – we have the answer: the Jetboil Sol Ti cooking system.
This upright canister cooking system is the ultimate way to boil water fast and efficiently, no matter what the season.

It’s an all-in-one solution with an integrated burner base and 0.8 Liter FluxRing cooking cup, has a reliable push-button lighter, and the lid features a pourable spout and strainer or can be drunk from directly.
The package also comes with a pot support and stabilizer tripod, an insulating cozy, and the bottom cover doubles as a bowl and measuring cup.
It truly is an all-in-one solution and it truly is awesome.
If you’re in the market for a new camera then definitely consider the new Samsung GALAXY Camera. It’s pretty cool: think smartphone-cool but for your camera.
It’s a great looking device and has many features that ultimately make taking great photos easier like the “Smart Pro Mode,” which allows you to easily choose the right setting for your particular situation. And that’s always a good thing.
It also shoots video and records at an amazing 120 frames per second and 720×480 resolution, allowing you to playback your footage in slow-motion with crystal clear quality.
There’s an in-camera editor that utilizes the 4.77″ HD Super Clear Touch Display, voice control feature so you can tell it what to do without pressing buttons, and also the ability to share your photos with other devices via WiFi.
As you’ve probably guessed, we’re only scratching the surface here.

It’s amazing how much technology can advance in even the smallest, most seemingly simple products. Like the new IE 800 earphones by Sennheiser.
These German-designed bad boys feature ground-breaking technological advancements that we’ll never fully understand, but we can sure appreciate.
There’s the extra wide band (XWB) transducer system, which with a diameter of only 7 mm, makes it the smallest extra wide-band sound transducer available in dynamic ear canal phones. And to the layman, this means incredible, distortion-free sound quality.
The IE 800’s also feature other significant improvements over previous models including state-of-the-art dampened two chamber absorbers (D2CA) and better ergonomically designed, oval-shaped ear adaptors.
They’re made from only the highest quality materials like scratch-resistant ceramic meaning they don’t just perform well, but look awesome too. And stay that way.
Frankly, there’s no better way to enjoy music on the go.
The new 80L Ozone wheeled travel case by Osprey makes for the perfect way to travel with ease and style. The 80-liter volume gives you ample room (it’s the biggest of the Ozone series) while its weight of only 4lbs 15oz (2.25 kg) ensures that it’s very much still classified as lightweight luggage.
It’s a durable case and includes some nifty features to make your journeys that little bit easier – things like the grab handle for carrying the case instead of wheeling it along with the zippered vertical and top pockets allowing for easy access to items on the fly. There’s even a rear panel compartment, too.
The Ozone also features three external compression straps to secure your load further as well as protect the zippers, and the main compartment has zip access with lockable sliders and internal compression straps to keep things like clothing neat and in place.
To top it off, it looks pretty slick in light green.
Why buy plastic components for household items or toys for children when you can build your own? Seriously, the Replicator™ 2 desktop 3D printer by MakerBot can actually do that for you, and to an incredible standard.
Considered one the best desktop 3D printers on the market, it has a resolution capability of 100 microns. This means each layer height is impossibly thin, resulting in smooth surfaces without any post-production.
The build volume of the machine is 410 cubic inches which is pretty big (37% more volume than the previous model), giving you significant space to create bigger creations or get more done at the same time.
These machines traditionally work with ABS plastic but the Replicator™ 2 also works perfectly with PLA, a renewable bioplastic that sticks to the platform reliably and practically avoids peeling, curling, sliding, or shrinking completely. And it’s better for the environment, too, requiring 32% less energy compared to using ABS plastic.
To top it off, the overall chassis on this beast offers industrial level strength to ensure it is stable and durable enough for high-speed printing and the powder-coated steel makes it resistant to changes in temperature and humidity.
Now it’s just a matter of learning how to use it.
Top Scandinavian design group KiBiSi bring their talent into the office with the strikingly simple X Table, a manually height adjustable table that “accommodates multiple working positions and daily reshuffling.”
The keyword here is “manually” – meaning no motors, just pure kinetic power. This is a good thing; you’re only adjusting the height after all so the X Table saves electricity and “keeps users active.” Hey, if this counts as exercise, we’ll take it.
It works in the same way as carjacks, ironing boards, and other such tools that have managed to rise just fine without the need for motors, and any technical components are neatly integrated within the table top, resulting in a clean, simple design.
It’s ultimately like any other table that does what tables do best, but at the same time, it’s so much more. And it even comes with an optional storage solution for all your office supplies.
If you’re after plenty of brute force with equal amounts technological sophistication, the new MV Agusta Brutale 800 will literally be music to your ears.
Its new 800 engine pushes out a whopping 125 horsepower with torque “comparable to a 1000cc” and with a relatively light weight of only 167kg, it certainly has a unique power to weight ratio.
The three-cylinder engine in question debuted on the Supersport F3 675 and was the starting point for further significant technological advancements such as a counter-rotating crankshaft, which is a first for a production bike.
The Brutale 800 also features 8 level adjustable traction control, adjustable suspension that gives any rider complete control and personalization, and includes an advanced electronics system that keeps the engine and bike as a whole working optimally at all times.
It looks awesome with the three-cylinder engine almost completely exposed. As they say, go naked or go home.
