This new luxury yacht concept is called the Arya Boat and was designed by Marco Schembri with aerodynamics in mind.

There are few better feelings than waking up well-rested and ready to take on the world. Unfortunately, that euphoria doesn’t happen regularly for most people (read: alarm clocks suck). Thankfully Hello has created a “sleeping pill” called Sense that not only promises a better night’s rest, but also tracks your sleep behavior and the environment of your room, and will also wake you up at the precise moment that works best for your body. It comes with a little, unobtrusive device that attaches to your pillow to collect data on your behavior and the environment (including noise and light disturbances) as you sleep.Then Sense will wake you up at the opportune time during your sleep cycle. For those who are a little Type-A and love being the best, Sense also gives you a grade after every night’s rest, so you can monitor its effectiveness as it monitors you overnight.

But there are some drinks out there that you may not be as aware of, like slivovitz or țuică (as well as a non-alcoholic communal beverage of Fiji). Some locals drink and some are more tourist-run, but they're all popular staples of the following 12 countries.
We were all in a tizzy over Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 6 Plus last week and were a little surprised at the reasonable $499 price tag for 128GB (with a two-year agreement, naturally)—after all, it comes with a longer battery life, upgraded camera, and faster CPU. Those interested in better video quality don’t necessarily have to upgrade just yet though.
Princess Yachts has unveiled the newest edition to their M Class fleet, the Princess 30M. While certainly the smallest, the sleek, bold design makes the nearly 100-foot luxury yacht feel incredibly spacious.

V-MODA's XS over-ear headphones will convince you to ditch those earbuds, with a set that is not only customizable with engraved plates, but sounds fantastic. The super slim XS fold in on themselves neatly and settle into a hard-backed carrying case that you can clip to whatever you want, be it your belt loop or your in-flight carry-on bag.
It's no secret that beloved comedian Bill Cosby is an art collector and has, over the years, amassed a pretty impressive collection.

Found in an inconspicuous warehouse in Broward County, Florida, Gurkha Cigars are known to be one of the world's best cigar brands.

With every movie he does, Tom Hardy keeps showing just how dang good he is. Who else could have pulled off Locke?(A movie in which his character was the only one you saw and spent the entire movie making phone calls while driving on a freeway.) And I'm still in awe of his performance in&a
Plenty of cars have rearview cameras, Bluetooth connectivity, built-in GPS systems, and amazing sound systems, but for the longest time motorcyclists have lacked the same luxury amenities—after all, where would you put them? Skully has the answer, and has put all those must-have features inside of its AR-1 helmet.
Wine trends fluctuate pretty often, with new favorites appearing as if over night while old favorites will suddenly be deemed unpopular—only to have the roles reversed soon after.
