If you’re not already following Man at Arms: Reforged, you should be. The show features a talented team of metal workers from Baltimore Knife & Sword, one of the finest swordmakers for stage combat and sparring in the world, and they create cool weapons based on sci-fi and fantasy.

Montegrappa’s DC Comics Pens Still Have That Montegrappa Price
When most people need to buy a pen,  they spend a few dollars for a 10 pack of Bic ball-points. Some style-conscious rich people like to buy pens from companies like Montegrappa, which charges a few hundred bucks for a single pen.

Netflix Daredevil Stills Show Bare-Bones Costume

Netflix Daredevil Stills Show Bare-Bones Costume
I love Netflix, even though it has been a while since any new shows or movies I really want to see have landed there. I have tried to watch several of the Netflix originals, and so far, I haven’t really liked any of them.

Landspeeder Cat Bed for Traveling Catooine
It’s never too early or too late to indoctrinate your cat into loving the things that you love. Like Star Wars. You could always buy your cat a neat Star Wars blanket, or a costume, but they really appreciate beds that look like Star Wars vehicles.

Sony PS4 Yakuza Editions Won’t Cut off Your Finger
In most of the movies I have ever seen about the Yakuza, if you do something wrong you have to cut off your own finger. I don’t think most of us would want to be in the Yakuza for real, but we probably would like to play the new Yakuza Zero game that will land this spring.

Casual hoops fans may not be familiar with NBA shooting guard Troy Daniels, but that might change soon thanks to a news channel’s blunder.

R/C Flying Christmas Tree: Airy Christmas!
Wait. This is what trees do after Christmas? They fly away? I’d better anchor my tree down so I can enjoy it for a few more weeks. You better nail yours down too, because if Otto Dieffenbach’s tree can fly like this, they might all take off.

The Spider Dress isn’t as powerful as Peter Parker’s Spider-Sense, but it’s designed to react to potential danger as well. Designed by “technological couture” specialist Anouk Wipprecht, it has six spiky limbs on its shoulders that move based on the wearer’s mood and the movement of people around.

Batman Bookends: Library of Comics
Your kids will love these cool Batman bookends. Adults will love them too. They’ve got a library sign on one side, and Batman reading on the other. He’s probably trying to figure out how to fix the Batmobile – reading a Chilton’s guide or something.

PocketBook CAD Reader Flex 13.3″ Flexible E-reader: Paper v.1.5

PocketBook CAD Reader Flex 13.3″ Flexible E-reader: Paper v.1.5
Last year, we featured the PaperTab, an extremely flexible E-ink reader prototype. PocketBook’s upcoming CAD Reader Flex isn’t as thin or flexible as the PaperTab, but it is real and will be available soon. It’s a 13.3″ e-reader that should be great for reading up to letter-size (8.5″ x 11″) documents at full size.
