Obey Essex Fedora

Obey Essex Fedora

We’re not too big on funky hats, but this tweed, short-brimmed Essex Fedora by Obey is cool enough without being over the “top”. It’s wrapped with a stacked satin rope and feather.

Luiza Barroso and Quentin Vaulot’s Oficio Workstation concept makes a space for those who are both messy and neat, by designating one half of the desk for clutter.

House of Liu Shaolin Monks

House of Liu Shaolin Monks

Unfortunately, we came across the Student edition (above) of House of Liu’s awesome Shaolin Monk vinyls too late. However, scope out this equally cool bronzed Rotofugi version.

Lewis Leathers Hi Tops

Lewis Leathers Hi Tops

The store’s navigation is tedious, but these Lewis Leathers Hi Top Sneakers are worth the journey: we dig the combination of black leather, zippers, double stitching and tire tread bumpers.

Photos: Tetrapod Beaches

Like relics of a lost civilization, tetrapods are employed by the Japanese government to minimize beach erosion. These concrete barriers and others like it cover over 50% of the coastline.

Basketball games have come a long way on the consoles, enough so we had to do a double-take on this NBA 2K9 teaser. It’ll be on store shelves in October for Xbox 360, PS3 and PS2.

Indamixx Portable Studio

Indamixx Portable Studio

Indamixx takes Samsung’s Q1 Ultra touchscreen UMPC and turns it into a mobile mixing studio, with multi track recording and editing, Wi-Fi, Skype, and internet browsing. It’s Eminem!

Trailer: Babylon A.D.

Trailer: Babylon A.D.

Babylon A.D.’s trailer doesn’t reveal much plot-wise, but what we do see has us sold: stealth bombers, Russian submarines, cyborg implants, psionic combat and Michelle Yeoh kicking butt.

Swords (T-Shirt)

Swords (T-Shirt)

Obsessions with sharp, pointy things aside, we like Swords for its simple, silhouetted style. Made by freelancer Ryan of A-OK Mart, the tee is limited to a run of 75.

Concept: Asterisco Hub

Concept: Asterisco Hub

The Asterisco Hub isn’t the most practical of concepts (it’s quite the space hog), but it works on two very important levels: 1) it looks cool; 2) it can be used as a ninja star on short notice.

Bionic Commando: Rearmed

Bionic Commando: Rearmed

We’ve been craving a classic side scroller shoot ’em up, and Bionic Commando: Rearmed answers the call. This game ain’t weak sauce–it’s tough–but it does have co-op play. Soundtrack is here.

Xten Chair

Pininfarina’s Xten Chair has advanced ergonomic features befitting its sporty heritage: lumbar support, adjustable headrests and arms, and synchronized back and seat tilting.

Check out these screens from Eidos’ upcoming Batman: Arkham Asylum game: man are those visuals smokin’ (in a dark, gritty way)! A cross platformer, it’s for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC owners.

Paul Smith Closer Shoe

Paul Smith Closer Shoe

Made with Italian Nero glace leather, Paul Smith’s Closer Shoe seems conservative. However, the striped, retro-colored webbing and embossed typography on the soles say otherwise.

Chaiten Volcano Eruption

Chaiten Volcano Eruption

These jaw-dropping photos are of Chilean volcano Chaiten as it erupted in May of this year, surrounded by a swarm of lightning bolts. It continues to be active as of July. Thanks, Ryan!

Laser Beam Music Generator

Laser Beam Music Generator

The video (above) of the Laser Beam Music Generator is dorky, but the premise is interesting: six laser beams, 64 music sequences and 19 genres for some crazy solo jam sessions.

Film: Big Buck Bunny

Film: Big Buck Bunny

Big Buck Bunny is a funny animated short with overtones of Rambo. What makes this film unique is that it was created with free software; all its data, characters and textures are open source.

Tumi Ducati Moto Backpack

Tumi Ducati Moto Backpack

Strida Folding Bike

Strida Folding Bike

We like Areaware’s Strida bicycle for what it doesn’t do: it won’t take up a lot of space because it folds away, and it won’t soil your clothes with grease thanks to its clean Kevlar belt.

Vaja Custom Mouse Pad

Vaja Custom Mouse Pad

if you’re fine with a cheapy $5 mouse pad, Vaja’s custom-colored pad is not for you. Starting at $60, this sleek, two-toned pad is wrapped in leather which develops a patina over time.
