I just received the Card Sharp in the mail and it’s awesome. Disguised as a credit card that easily fits in you wallet, the Card Sharp is perfect as a box cutter, paper slicker or even slicing fruit or vegetables.
The Iain Sinclair ‘CardSharp’ is perfect for those who don’t want to carry a bulking pocket knife. Just be careful with it. It’s very sharp.
This is just a design concept for Samsonite luggage. But I love the way the luggage is split into departments that open like a chest of drawers. This allows a person to organize there items separately from each other for quicker access. This would be very handy for a long trip.
Let’s rock like great great great grandpa did!
When things start to get a little boring in gear and gadget land, I like to get on Etsy and see what kind of creative items people are selling. Sometimes I’m amazed at the things people come up with, and inevitable “why didn’t I think of that.” This happened today when I found an Acoustic iPhone speaker, using an old Gramophone speaker.
I love the mix of old and new technology. Modern with a twist of vintage tech. Plus there are no batteries or cords. Just place your iPhone in the slot and hit play. Plus it’s a great conversation piece.
Check out this video for an example of it’s vintage sound

When I was a kid camping meant sleeping in a tent that leaks when it rains, a sleeping bag that was either too hot or not warm enough and trying to sleep on the hard bumpy ground. I spent many a sleepless night camping in the woods, wondering what all of the weird noises were coming from.
But these days you can buy this comfy Roll-n-Go Memory Foam Orthopedic Camping Sleeping Pad. And I would imagine a much better nights sleep.
The pad has 3-layers of sleep foam, insulates the hard cold ground, with water resistant treatment added. And it folds out at 4 inches thick x 26 inches wide x 78 inches long.
Since summer is almost here it’s time to start thinking about camping. In a series of posts I’ll highlight some of the newest and coolest camping gear around.
First off is the Biolite camp cooking stove. This stove is very eco friendly, as it takes the heat energy from your burning collected wood, and converts it into electrical energy via a thermoelectric generator. This powers a fan which pushes oxygen into the stove, resulting in a strong and clean combustion process. As a matter of fact, it uses just half the wood of a regular stove and creates 95% less smoke. So good for the environment, and keeps your smoke signal down in case you don’t want to found.
You’re welcome Mother Nature.

I love this bag. Filson’s makes good looking luggage, and they have a great reputation for making bags that can take some pretty major abuse. That’s probably why they are a little on the pricey side ($275 for the bag above.) But if your looking for something to last, look no further.
This Sportsman’s Bag is made from 100% cotton oil finish Rugged Twill with 100% Genuine Bridle Leather. And it made in the USA.
Fritz Kola is the vision of Friends Lorenz Hampl and Mirco Wolf Wiegert of Germany. They obviously weren’t catching enough of a buzz off standard sodas like Coke or Pepsi. So they started making their own. Naming it the classic German name Fritz, and putting their own faces on the label. As well as putting 25 mg of caffeine per 100 ml in each bottle. Making it the “most wide-awake” soda in the world. Making their first batch in 2003, they were forced to store the first 170 cases in friend’s and relatives basements and garages. It wasn’t long before the Fritz Kola took off.
Today Fritz Kola is extremely popular in Europe . And it has recently started selling in the UK. Sorry my fellow Americans, but you can’t get it here yet. But hopefully soon.
The days of mid-century advertising is visited in the new book, American print advertising in the 50s and 60s. The book rediscovers ads from the glory days of smoking, drinking and sexually harassing the hell out of women in the office. At least that’s the impression I get from Mad Men. But the book itself is filled with digitally remastered photos of some of the greatest ad campaigns of the 50′s and 60′s. Also is insight into what drove the creators of the ads to create what they did and why.
