The hunt for the coolest gadgets in the world continue this week and we’ve got something for the FOMO sufferers right through to the angry girlfriends who don’t like ring marks on tables. If you also like the idea of $1,000 earphones, issue six will definitely make you happy. Poorer, but happy.
#1 Equinox Snowcoach
If you’ve ever been that kid left out in the cold as your mates shredded the slopes in their powered snowmobiles, then your FOMO fears have been answered. Equinox have created this badass snowcoach which allows you to hook up to any snowmobile and tag along for the ride as the other guy freezes their nuts off. It’s made of polythylene to keep weight down and has room for up to two people. Gas shocks come standard to provide the smoothest of rides and there’s also an ATV conversion kit so that it can be used with quad bikes during the warmer seasons.
#2 White & White LED Clock
Take your living quarters back to the old school days with this very cool digital clock designed by award-winning product designer Vadim Kibardin. The modern 3D interpretation of the traditional digital clock features white LEDs with white frame digits and an alarm and 24 hour time display mode. During the evening hours the light sensitive sensor will change the brightness of the digits to a less intense white.
#3 Library Wallpaper By Mr Perswall
Can’t fit a real library in your apartment? Fake it ’til you make it with this sweet library wallpaper from Mr Perswall. It features some of the world’s greatest books in one-dimension and will undoubtedly amaze guests (or piss off the drunk ones looking for something to read).
#4 Concrete Water Absorbent Coaster
What’s cooler than concrete? How about water absorbent concrete…for your drink. This water absorbent coaster is handmade of non-toxic recycled ash to give it its unique properties. No more ring marks to annoy your girlfriend, the coaster is also heavy enough so that it won’t stick to your glass.
#5 Qlocktwo Watch by Biegert & Funk
Qlocktwo is changing the way people tell the time – one word at a time. At first glance the watch looks like a random jumble of letters on a screen, but touch a button and it will light up the time in words. Words are displayed at five-minute intervals, while four small dots give the precise time in minutes.
#6 Sennheiser IE 800 Headphones
Audiophiles on the move can now demand the very best in aural pleasure with the Sennheiser IE 800 headphones. Rich detail and a smooth tonal balance are beautifully packaged in these small in-ears which trade up the bulky armature drivers for Sennheiser’s specially developed 7mm “extra wide band” dynamic drivers. The tiny full-range transducers can cover a wide frequency range (8 – 41,000Hz) with incredible clarity and feature dual vented enclosures to direct airflow away from the diaphragm for crystal clear sound. The price alone suggests that this is no ordinary in-ear unit too. The IE 800 features scratch-resistant ceramic housing, two protective meshes to protect the inner electronics from outside contaminants to ensure quality meets longevity. Five pairs of silicon ear tips are also included to assist in noise isolation.
