If you’ve ever searched for a door handle, you know that despite the overwhelmingly wide selection of styles available, it can be extremely difficult to find one that speaks to your style! With the Ada handle, you can put the finishing touch on your door with a look that’s truly your own.
It’s uniquely framed to accommodate a customized insert made from your favorite fabric, wood, metal, or other material. You can even imprint a logo or name on the insert to define your space as your own! If you’re more into minimal, leave it empty and use it as is.

Even Thor’s hammer, the Mjolinr, is breakable, but the Ottolock isn’t! While most bike locks or travel locks are made from metal (making them somewhat reliable, but bulky), the Ottolock uses one of the most light yet powerful polymers known to man. Kevlar. The same material used in bulletproof vests, the Kevlar framework of the Ottolock allows it to be lightweight, but virtually indestructible. No amounts of strength can break apart the Ottolock and even cutting tools like shears, or padlock breaking equipment can cut through metal, but not the Ottolock. In fact, here, watch this video of a blowtorch try to melt the Ottolock and fail miserably!
The simple and immortal Ottolock comes in 3 outdoorsy colors, rolls up and fits in your pocket, and weighs under 115 grams. With the ability to lock anything from cycles, to doors, to even your travel gear, the Ottolock is a robber’s worst nightmare!

The Mono Humster concept car has an identity crisis. The construction has a distinct F1 flavor to it with the way the cockpit is designed, and the signature roll structure behind the driver.

The car aesthetic definitely looks like a functional hybrid, creating a bridge between hypercars and formula racecars. Either which way, it definitely looks like a mean machine!! Plus… are those rear view mirrors I see?!?
The concept car is a work of fiction, designed for the Humster 3D Car Design and Rendering Competition, 2016.

Greats is the first direct to consumer sneaker brand born in Brooklyn, and their quality, courageous color choices, competitive pricing, and wide range of styles should put them on your shoe shopping shortlist. I checked out the Hirsch in Dune and the Royale in a no-longer-available red colorway.
It’s time to talk about climate change. Because Bret Stephens wants to. Stephens, as you may know, is the recently hired New York Times columnist known for holding ugly, entirely unremarkable ideas (Black Lives Matter is “thuggish,” there’s no data to support a campus rape epidemic) that will supposedly “diversify”…
