Need a Reason to Charter a Yacht for Your Next Vacation? We Have Seven
If you're going to get a new smartphone for the holidays, you better get an amazing one, like this Luxury Gold iPhone 6 Swarovski Brilliance Elite phone. Though it's available in platinum and rose gold, we like the golden hue the best—it's just so dang festive. The 128GB gadget has some serious bling in the form of 24K gold and Swarovski crystals inlaid around the bezel and across the back and bottom of the phone. Not only is the iPhone 6 SIM-free and factory unlocked to all networks (meaning it can be used anywhere in the world), it comes with clear-coat full body protection and is shipped in a cherry oak box.
Hendo is probably the closest you will ever get to actually being Marty McFly. The super successful Kickstarter campaign has so far raised nearly double their $250,000 goal, meaning that the 11 lucky folks who pitched in $10K to get themselves the...
Judging by the photo alone, the Golden Beats On-Ear Headphones & Pill Speaker are literally so hot that they will melt a snowman—keep your creepy stick-hands off, Olaf! Offered exclusively through Neiman Marcus, this limited edition offering includes a Beats Pill 2.0 Speaker and Studio Wireless headphones made by Beats By Dre, both with a fancy golden finish. The headphones feature comfy leather ear cushions, active noise canceling, are foldable, a 3.5mm plug, and integrated volume controls. The Pill 2.0 has a little handle for easy carrying, active syncing technology, surrounded sound, Bluetooth, a built-in microphone, and a lithium ion battery that will give up to seven hours of playback on a single charge. As nice as all of that is, we really just care about the aesthetics in this case and that's because they're gooooold.
No matter how humble you are, it always feels amazing to get noticed for doing something awesome, especially if it happened when you were surfing the waves or shredding down a snowy mountain on a snowboard. But it can be hard to relay just how great of a run you had when you don't have the data to prove it, which is where Trace: The Action Sports Tracker comes in handy. By attaching to whatever you're riding and keeping track of speed, distance, turns, vertical, airs, and calories burned, Trace helps you be a better athlete by showing you what you can do and by helping you push yourself a little farther. Plus, it syncs up with all those Bluetooth-enabled gadgets you already have (like GoPro, iPhone, and Android) in order to take high-quality videos you can share later. The company has also designed accompanying apps, Trace Snow and Trace Surf, which allow you to compare stats with your friends and anyone in the Trace community.
With each new product B&O PLAY by Bang & Olufsen releases, our love for them grows and their BeoPlay A2 isn't about to change that. The Bluetooth loudspeaker not only promises 24-hour Li-ion battery life on one charge and "True...
The new Eclipse TD-M1 wireless speakers look like little friendly jet packs that can't wait to start streaming your guilty love for Taylor Swift. The company promises that the speakers will enhance your listening experience with "speed, accuracy, and clear imaging." With intuitive touch sensor control for the volume and source selection, TD-M1 (the TD stands for Time Domain—how very futuristic of them) is apparently pretty easy to use and comes in white or black. Plus, the egg-shaped gadget was even picked as one of the stand-outs at this year's CES.
Pronto may not be the fanciest gadget (soon to be) on the market, but it's something everyone is going to want. Promising to charge up 12 times faster than its competitors, Pronto capitalizes off of the very familiar term "time is...
The heavy-duty M-Freedom digital speaker from GGMM has a retro radio look to it, mostly thanks to the lone dial on the top. The simple design is encased in leather and has a brushed metal front panel that the 30w carbon fiber speakers sit in. With a range of 100 meters, the gadget is able to switch between up to 16 different devices without having to log in and out and sounds pretty great for being so small. Though it's able to stream music from smartphones, tablets, PC and Mac computers, the Wi-Fi M-Freedom doesn't hook directly into programs like Spotify and Pandora, so you'll still need to play them through those previously mentioned tech units. The M-Freedom is available in brown, black, red, or blue.
Just in time for ghost-hunting season (because what else would you use it for?), Seek Thermal is a neat sensor for your smartphone. Most objects give off heat and thermal cameras like this capture that radiation even in the absence of visible light. The Seek Thermal extension (which plugs into the USB adaptor on Androids or iPhones) actually has a lot more uses than investigating haunted hotels or landmarks. Although slightly less exciting, you can use it around the home to find studs, clogged drains, and water damaged areas, which makes it pretty handy around the home. If you're a camper, you can also scan a dark landscape to search for bears, the boogeyman, or el chupacabra.
We’ve all seen those dramatic, slow-motion scenes—a couple running to lovingly embrace on the beach, a punch being thrown in a bar fight, Fabio’s hair blowing in the wind—and we've all probably daydreamed a few moments of our real life as if it happened in slow-mo. Well, now we can actually capture those real moments with this fps1000 high-speed camera. The camera takes what is normally studio-production technology and puts it into a portable, every-man gadget. The benchmark for high frame rate cameras is 1,000 frames per second, and the fps1000 captures about 840 to 10,000. It’s able to capture the high-speed motion that would normally be filmed as a blur (especially for standard video which captures at about 30-60 FPS), and when played back at normal speed, the images appear in slow-motion without any loss of detail—which is perfect, because we want every detail of our Kim Kardashian hair toss caught on camera.
Original Nixie displays (first introduced in 1955), might have been replaced by the modern seven-segment LED, but American Innovative is bringing them back in dazzling fashion. The AI Nixie Clock combines vintage design with modern technology, including configurable time and date formatting options and animated transitions like fade, twinkle, marquees, curtain, and shuffles. You can purchase a fully-assembled version, or go out on an adventurous limb and purchase a kit to build one yourself (it will take about four to eight hours to build and you'll need access to a smoldering tool). The pre-made clock isn't just hand-built for you though, it's also special because each one is given a limited edition serial number label and registered to you in their database.
Having a great pair of headphones is one thing, but getting a dedicated headphone amplifier is another thing entirely. The MHA100 is the very first amplifier of its kind from McIntosh and gives four digital inputs that allows the gadget to decode...
