This Jacket Transforms Into A Bag And Vice Versa While Keeping Things Within

We all been there: we head out in the warm of the day in just berms, t-shirt and a bag, but when the sun sets and the cold takes over, you’d wish you had brought along a jacket. Then again, your bag wouldn’t fit anyways and having to hold on a jacket when you don’t need it is rather inconvenient and makes you look silly. While it looks like we have put up with this modern day inconvenience, the brilliant minds behind the pop-a-point pencil-style tool pen came up with an ultimate solution: DUOKET. So what the heck is DUOKET anyway? It is a jacket and it is also a bag. It is either when you need, well, either. In other words, it is a transforming apparel/bag.

Classic Flight Jacket Reimagined By COLDSMOKE And The Result Is Awesome

Flight jacket used to be a military pilot thing until (probably) Tom Cruise made it a fashion icon in the movie Top Gun. If you look back at this pop culture outwear, you will probably find it a little dated and you’d only wear it when attending a 80s party, but not unless you are sporting the 2016 iteration interpreted by Venice Beach-based COLDSMOKE. Unlike the classic, the COLDSMOKE MA-1 Flight Jacket is a lot less ‘puffy’ and a tad body fitting – thanks to the emphasis on fit and overall tailoring which sees the outerwear receiving a slimmer cut, replacing the bulky arm pocket with a streamlined water repellent zippered opening suitable for media devices and ditching the traditional elastic bottom for tailored hem that offers the jacket a shirt-like feel.

Manmade Spider Silk Find its Way to North Face’s New Parka, Spider-Man Should Follow Suit Too

Mankind have long envy the astonishing properties of spider’s silk. Spider’s silk is known to be five-time stronger than steel, but yet has far greater flexibility than nylon, thus making them suitable for a wide range applications, including life-saving bulletproof vest and even for building suspension bridges. There is a major stumbling block though; ‘milking’ silk out of spiders are next to impossible – you know, they are not big like cows and on top of that, you would need a gazillion of them to make a decent yarn. This prompted a Japanese biomaterials company, aptly called Spiber, to go on a 11-year long journey to develop a manmade spider silk which they named Qmonos – a word derived from Japanese word kumonosu, meaning ‘spider web’.
