Some people like graffiti, some people hate it. Any artform that puts droids on the streets is fine by me. No matter how you feel about graffiti, you have to love this secret door that is hidden within a graffiti R2-D2.
Whatever sports or activities you’re into, it’s often nice to be able share your exploits with others via video.

I always hate it when earbuds pop out of my ears, especially when I’m on the bike or on a run. UK designer Michael Young has come up with earphone design that will probably stay put, no matter what you are doing.
Guitars come in all shapes and sizes these days and some people are really pushing the art form.
