Abom Zero Fog Snow Goggles – The World’s First Snow Goggle with Active Anti-fog Technology

Snow sports lovers can now say goodbye to the constant battle with fog up goggles with the Abom (short for Abominable) Zero Fog Snow Goggles. Billed as the world’s first snow google with active anti-fog technology, there are no vents to meddle with or fans to turn on; instead, it uses patented KLAIR technology which consists of an invisible heat-conductive film sandwiched between two anti-scratch coated Carl Zeiss polycarbonate lenses. A rechargeable battery is used to send current through the film to heat the lens and thus, keeping the fog at bay. A pretty ingenious solution which prompts us to think why we didn’t think of that? Perhaps someone did, but the heat conductive transparent film wasn’t invented yet? Continue reading Abom Zero Fog Snow Goggles – The World’s First Snow Goggle with Active Anti-fog Technology

MINI Heads into the Open Water with the World’s First MINI Surfboard

MINI has taken to the sea, but not with an amphibious vehicle as one might have guessed. It now has a surfboard to its name and mind you, that’s a fully working surfboard that we are talking about. Not a concept. Not a prototype. Which is an awesome thing because we hate reading about stuff that we can’t enjoy or buy even if we don’t have the intention of buying. It just feel good to know it is a real thing and not something that sits in the archive and fades into oblivion. Developed by Christopher Weil, head of MINI exterior design and pro surfer Kalani Robb, and working with California-based Channel Islands Surfboards, the world’s first MINI surfboard is not mini in size though. In fact, it is a regular size board blessed with a little bit more volume and armed with low rocker for agility and fast feeling, just like its land-going MINI automobile has been offering.
