to be honest, i am not quite sure if this is Nixon’s handy work or somebody else’s but what matter most is these time pieces look super wicked cool. if you think the glittery colors of the world of wristwatch makes you look a little sissy, than perhaps these stripped down Nixon Raw Steel wristwatches will make you feel a whole lot manlier. instead of the shiny chrome or gold (or whatever), these watches are of pure raw steel finish which are sure to turn heads. these are the perfect examples of minimalism at its best. despite being raw finish, the watches still maintain it’s original form and functionality. currently, there are three raw steel that you can choose from: Chronicle SS, 42-20 Chrono and the 51-30 Chrono but of course, if you have huge pockets, there’s no stopping you from grabbing all three of them. there’s nothing like a cold, chunky raw steel on your wrist. yes?

frankly speaking, Radio Controlled model (or some called it Remote Controlled model) is the last thing you would expect to have a ‘world’s fastest’ tag to it but in this case, this is exactly what this DIY RC car has achieved. meet Schumacher Mi3, touted to achieve a shattering 161.76 mph (about 260 km/h) top speed and is hence, crowned the world’s fastest RC car. if i were you, i’d stand way clear when this baby is streaking around. i used to pilot a RC truck that made 60 km/h and i already found it hard to keep it in control, hence at 260 km/h, the Mi3 just made it into the insane territory.

one look at the image you will know exactly what the product is about. this pair of flip flops may not be able to let you make a call like Agent Maxwell Smart but it can certainly stash away cash, keys or whatever while you chill out in the swimming pool. however, one thing puzzles me. if there is a hollow in the flip flops, isn’t that going to take away some form of arch support? anyway, though it is a nice idea, but don’t expect this to protect your stash if the public pool you frequent has flip flop thieves. you know, they just want your flip flops but you might just be giving them a bonus or two. well, that’s just a thought.
