Preserving Coffee Culture

mokkapikknikk_coffee_01

Mokkapikknikk combines trend and tradition in this modern take on the Turkish cezve coffee maker! The ultra-portable design makes it possible to experience the same authentic experience of boiling beans over a fire. The materials are more durable and backpack-friendly than the traditional copper and wood elements. Packed in the special protective wrap, the collapsable cezve fits together with a bean bag and cups for sharing with up to 4 camping buddies!

The Future of Feel Good

toyota_gr_hv_01

The end of this month gives way to the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show – showcasing some of the largest brands in the game with Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, Suzuki and Toyota making an appearance. It’s going to be a great spectacle and one I’m very much looking forward to however, in the mean time we are fortunate enough to get a few spoilers for the event – the largest in the form of the Toyota GR HV concept.

The design of the GR HV is aggressive and edgy with the matte black body color, disrupted by the glossy window and rear headlight trims. The GR HV represents a feel good movement towards the integration of a slick sports car with the green environmental feel of an eco- friendly car. The traces of red found hidden around the GR HV are smartly placed, purposely stealing your eyes attention and directing them towards some noticeably powerful features around this sporty number. The tiered headlight configuration has a somewhat futuristic feel to it, giving the GR HV a truly intimidating feel to it. The interior is no different, imitating the exterior with it’s sports-like feel found throughout, mimicking the traces of eye catching red. What is the most noticeably playful addition to the GR HV is the delightfully cool ignition button located on the gear stick, uncovered with the flick of the lid – talk about cool.

A Fitbit for Baby Kicks!

Close-up Of Expecting Woman Sitting On Sofa Videoconferencing With Doctor On Mobile Phone

How many kicks should moms-to-be feel every day? The answer is still a mystery as we rely on individual perceptions. However, these micro-movements can be informative if tracked in the correct manner. Bumpe proposes a safe, at home and reliable answer that can be also used after the child is born.

The remote system consists of a wearable device, base station and dedicated app. Its developed passive sensing technology allows for continuous monitoring outside of a hospital and can be safely used from the third trimester. Better yet, Bumpe is there for you and your new baby after giving birth. The sensors gather data over the course of your baby’s development by tracking the infant’s breathing patterns and sleep cycles. Using the Bumpe app, parents can even interface directly with physicians in real time, remotely from the comfort of home!

Good Things Come in Threes

UPDATE: 8 days to go and over 100% funded, grab yours now!

I’ve been a long standing fan of the modular approach to traveling. Take the Leather Duffle from last year for example. The very idea of having three separate bags but handling them as one bag is convenient, not just because it makes carrying items less of a hassle… but it also means all your belongings are in one place, and not scattered about. The Valluse takes that very idea and expands it. A combination of the words Value and Valise (French for suitcase), the Valluse is a triad of suitcases for the traveler, designed in three sizes, but with the ability to be combined into one.

The three suitcases that comprise the Valluse are sized perfectly for taking on a plane. The large case is spacious and can easily be checked into your flight luggage, while the two smaller bags easily fit the dimension regulations for carrying on board as cabin luggage. However the creators of Valluse knew that three bags may be better than one, but carrying three bags can be nothing short of a nightmare. That’s why the Valluse bags were designed to securely lock together, becoming one super-bag that could be easily wheeled around as a single unit. The Valluse united can be easily wheeled with just a single hand, down aisles/walkways, through elevators, and to airport kiosks, giving you a free hand to do everything from call a taxi, summon an elevator, to show the airline personnel your ticket/passport, or even access your phone.

The modular Valluse suitcases come with a hard, Polycarbonate shell that’s virtually break-proof and dent-proof, and can take the roughest of treatment from luggage handlers and still look as good as new, while keeping your luggage inside well protected. A reinforced Aluminum frame gives the Valluse its shape, coupling with the Polycarbonate to increase durability.

Designed to be used in 6 orientations (independently as well as together) the Valluse can be used for everything from long trips to short excursions. With a secure TSA approved lock and absolutely no zippers (the Valluse uses a gasket seal), the bags stay protected from not just theft but rough usage too, and the superior suitcase-interlocking system ensures that your luggage stays conveniently together and in place, much like your travel plans!
