Nixon Black Diamond Watch Concept: Please Make These, Nixon.
You know me, I’m a pushover for cool digital watch designs – even ones which are just concepts. Often times, concept watches are just too difficult to produce, and that’s why they never make it to market.

ODDIO1 Headphones Hide iPod Shuffle 4G in Plain Sight

ODDIO1 Headphones Hide iPod Shuffle 4G in Plain Sight

Sick of the sea? This new motorboat from Iguana Yachts will deploy treads and let just drive your fancy ship right out of the water when you’re ready to get back on dry land. Why does this remind me of a James Bond movie?
