Brikk Marks Chinese New Year In China With 3 Carats Diamonds Headphones

Brikk is one of purveyor of opulent tech and while we are accustomed to the luxed gadgets (and non-gadgets) it has to offer thus far, nothing has quite prepared us for this: a pair of headphones coated in gold and handset with no less 200 colorless diamonds, totalling 3 carats. Now, a pair of audio cans with that sort of bling is probably no big deal. Hell, it could even be deemed tame when compared to the real estate headphones has to offer, but the headphones we are talking about here ain’t no audio cans; it is a pair of in-ear headphones. That’s right. Earphones it is and that pretty much makes Lux Listen HD Headphones, as it is called, a sight to behold.

Freaky Sneaks “Super Nintendo” Shoes Have Real Controller Buttons!

Freaker Sneaks is not shoe brand and that’s probably a good thing, or else this shoe customizer founded by U.K. born artist Jonny Barry wouldn’t be able to turn out shoes that you desired in your favorite, sometimes one-of-a-kind design. Having said that, if you are tired of off-the-shelf sneakers and if you have been bitten by the nostalgic gaming bug, then you should really check out Freaker Sneaks’ Jordan “Super Nintendo” IV. Well, the product pretty much says it all. There’s really nothing we can add on except for two things: it has a colorway that’s a nod the Super Nintendo chassis color and each pair features D-pad and buttons that are actually pulled from official Super Nintendo controllers, and hence they are can actually be pressed.

Twin V8 Powered Seafaring Lexus Is Pretty But, Sadly, Won’t Be Produced

The Lexus Sport Yacht Concept you see here may not be as wild as the spacecraft the Japanese luxury automaker dreamed up for Luc Besson’s sci-fi movie, Valerian and City of a Thousand Planets, it is at least, more down to earth. Nearly two years in the development, Lexus Sport Yacht Concept is the brainchild of Lexus Marine Department and it was a bespoke one-off project with no production intent. This particular example, a running proof-of-concept, was unveiled at Di Lido Island on Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach, Florida, last week.

‘High Performance Derivative’ Of The 2017 Toyota Yaris Looks Kinda Hot!

Toyota Yaris is all youthful and fun, but it is never a ride closely associated with high performance and that’s probably because it isn’t, or at least it never is in most parts of the world that gets this cute little hatch from Toyota. However, in Europe, 2017 Toyota Yaris may not as tame as we believe it to be and rightfully, it shouldn’t be tame at all since it already has developed a race homologation Yaris destined for 2017 World Rally Championships. Sitting in between the super hot Toyota’s WRC contender, the 375 horsepower 2017 Yaris WRC and a regular 106 horsepower Yaris, is a high performance derivative that has 207 horses (210 DIN hp) packed under the hood.

Porsche Design Touched Huawei Mate 9 Cost A Cool $1,480

Once a upon a time, you can’t be called a true business person if you didn’t have a Blackberry. Blackberry was, at its peak, the name for on-the-go business-centric communication and so, it only made sense than that if Porsche Design want to pick a communication device to touch, Blackberry would be it. But the hey days are well over for the Canadian tech firm and with official words that it won’t making smartphone anymore, it only make sense for Porsche Design to look for an alternative to fill PD smartphone void and look they sure did, finding the next PD-touch to be Huawei Mate 9, a device that runs on the almost infallible Android Operating System.

HTC’s Latest Smartphone Has ‘Liquid Surface’, 2 Displays And It’s All About U

Yesterday, HTC reminds me of its existence with the introduction of HTC U Ultra. Sorry for being so blunt. With so many phones in the market, it is easy to sink into oblivion if you are not too careful.

It is about your sound holes, your selfie, your photos, and your everything. It is a large phone. Large by today’s standard, offered by a 5.7-inch QHD super LCD 5 display packing in 513 ppi which has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 with curve edge for protection.
