Underwater Restaurant Norway

As far as dining out at restaurants is concerned, it can be pretty standard these days for most. That’s unless you hit up 5 or 6 star places in Dubai for a spot of underwater dining. Well now Europe is joining the fold with its very own underwater dining experience.

The creatively named Underwater Restaurant will be built just off the coast of southern Norway to offer diners an experience like never before. The structure is a unique feat of engineering with a concrete prism which sits semi-submerged and extends five metres into the water with an opened glass end.


Entry is via a oak-lined opening on the shore and guests need to pass through a champagne bar before reaching the restaurant at the tip. Once down there the restaurant can hold up to 100 guests to keep the marine life company. 


Traxxas TRX-4 R/C Defender

The iconic Land Rover Defender may have ceased production but you can still score one in radio-control guise. And it’s just as serious as the real off-roader. The Traxxas TRX-4 R/C is a true-to-form replica of the real car in 1/10 scale that can overcome the most demanding terrain. Aluminium shocks, a steel frame and fully enclosed waterproof electronics means the car can take a beating without frying itself in the two hour runtime it affords.

Sennheiser IE 800 S

The experts in personal audio have returned with an updated version of their high-end IE 800 headphones, the IE 800 S. The latest model features improved acoustics with extra attention given to bass and treble. This upgrade comes complements of Sennheiser’s Extra Wide Band driver which can provide distortion-free music without weighing down the wearer. The units are handcrafted entirely in Germany and come in a scratch proof ceramic housing along with a choice of cable designs. 



Samsung 360 Round Camera

The future of live streaming and VR content creation is here thanks to Samsung’s 360 Round Camera. The professional device crams eight pairs of stereo lenses into a flat cylinder designed to capture everything in crispy 4K video quality and 3D footage at 30fps. It also comes with 2TB of external storage and comes with IP651 water and dust resistance to ensure quality video can be captured in any condition.

Audi Designed TIE Fighter

Darth Vader’s iconic TIE Fighter has been around since the 70s now so when an Audi automotive designer named Jason Battersby decided to pen the modern rendition of the craft, people definitely took notice. The cockpit now glows red and there’s twin blasters to make sure Darth Vader is armed for taking over the universe. Whilst you can’t buy it, it would certainly make for one cool print in the home for any Star Wars geek.
