Wear the Oldest Space-rock On Your Wrist

Unlike the LIV Rebel watch that was designed to be a maverick, or the Ferro AGL watch that takes inspiration from aircrafts, The Zelos watch series take on a classic style that never dies. In fact, the watches are designed to age like fine wine. They’re also the only crowdfunded watches to be made out of the world’s oldest known actual meteorite!

The Zelos watches are available in three variants, all with a Swiss Automatic movement at their heart. The Gallant, Avant, and Visionary all take on exquisitely classic styles, with a Stainless Steel/Bronze body and a Sapphire Crystal glass on the top. The leather straps are courtesy Horween Chromexel, USA’s oldest and most premium leather tannery, dating back to 1905. The Avant’s design is nothing short of intricate, with a dial that allows you to stare right into the heart of the watch, the Gallant’s style is simple, elegant, and mirrors your personality. None of them, however, match up to the Visionary that has a dial made from Meteorite. The only watch of its price range to have a Meteorite dial (and the only watch on YD to make use of this cosmic material), the Visionary is literally out of this world! Each piece of the 4.5 billion year old Muonionalusta meteorite has a texture called the Widmanstätten, achieved from cooling slowly over millions of years. The Widmanstätten texture on each watch is unique, giving you a timepiece so exquisite, no one on the planet has the same design as you!

The Zelos watches are designed to withstand time itself. Like the meteor that develops its beautiful texture over years, the Zelos watches age with sheer grace. The watches with the bronze body start developing a patina with time, giving them a vintage quality that only looks better as the years go by.

Watches evoke premium and aim at becoming precious keepsakes, but there’s nothing more precious than a watch that has a century of craftsmanship in its leather straps, centuries of innovation in its Swiss Movements, and a billion years of slow aging and maturing in its dial. The meteorite used to carve the dial has aged for a million years, having seen most of the earth’s life cycle, and having withstood four whole ice ages. While most Meteorite Watches cost nothing short of tens of thousands of dollars, the Zelos Visionary is the only watch that puts 4.5 billion years of inter-cosmic history on your wrist at its early-bird price of $520. Watches don’t get more classic, premium, and vintage than that!

The Nike watch of future past!

mn_wearable_1

Back in the day, Nike launched the Triax series of sports watches that all had a very interesting design detail. All the watches had an asymmetric design with a tilted watch face that not just made it easier to read the time, but also became an iconic era for Nike and design.

The M&N Watch tips a hat to the Triax series with a modern day watch/fitness wearable. It uses the Xiaomi Mi Band’s wearable component, fitted onto a custom made asymmetric watch strap that allows one to have the finest present technology on your wrist, paired beautifully with arguably the most iconic watch design detail from the past!

Where no vacuum has ever cleaned before

vc500_1

You call it the VC500, I call it the Pinocchio Vacuum! This little concept dustbuster comes with an extendable snout that allows it to clean your car inside out, reaching hitherto un-cleanable crevices and gaps like the underside of the seat, or what I call ‘places where dark matter exists’.

The telescopic snout/hose extends upto twice its size, allowing you to maneuver it into hard-to-reach spots, while the vacuum is designed to handle dry as well as wet cleaning. Couple that with its incredibly portable size, the VC500 may be just the perfect handheld appliance to clean the interiors of your car!

Designers: Yu-Chung Chang & Cheng-Yu Yang.

Red Bull Gives Your Vacuum Wings

redbull_cleaner_01

The idea of an energy drink company making a vacuum is weird and unexpected, yet the result is totally awesome! The Red Bull Robot Cleaner applies the brand’s simultaneously sporty and minimalist aesthetic to an autonomous robo-vacuum for an all new tough look and easy-to-use functionality. This, paired with a powerful turbo mode, means it kicks butt when it comes to performing… just like you when you drink a Red Bull!

FaceTime on your Apple Watch?!

The Apple Watch goes as close to working as efficiently as the smartphone in your pocket. It even comes with a gallery that allows you to view your photos, but it lacks one crucial detail. The Watch lacks a camera.

Battery is probably the main concern, since cameras hog a tonne of juice. The solution? The CMRA strap! Made by the guys behind the hit video messaging app Glide, the CMRA strap puts not one, but TWO cameras on the strap of the Watch! Positioned in a front/back configuration, the strap can either film you, or what’s going on in front of you.

The CMRA strap comes with 24-hr batteries of its own, so never fear. Both cameras are HD enabled and LED lights shine up to notify you if the camera is in use. Choose from 4 classic colors, white, grey, ocean blue, or black, and you’ll even get yourself a free (for a limited time) charging dock that charges not just the straps, but the watch too. Mr. Cook, do take note!
