Forget HDTV: the NFL and 3ality Digital will show next week’s Raiders vs. Chargers game live in 3D at three theaters in LA, New York and Boston. Too bad it’s not open to the public.
This video puts our office hoops game to shame: watch as several French kids put a Parkour twist on recycling cans, with amazing long-distance kicks and behind the back tosses.
Quick Fire Pool does away with opponents and pits you against the timer; basically, pocket as many balls as you can in a given time, with extra time and points for special moves.

It doesn’t get much more real for skateboarders than these two Steiner Sports decks, hand signed by pro legend Tony Hawk and Bam Margera of CKY and MTV’s Jackass.
Based in Costa Mesa, CA, skate company Cyanide has a style that’s “dead” on for us: their skateboard decks (printed by Deckpeck) feature the Four Horsemen; the line art is killer.
Even those who don’t skate will find Touchgrind to be worth some “air”-time; it’s a simple iPhone app that uses your fingers to ride the board. The game will be available late November.
There are RVs and then there’s the Nike 6.0 ill Mobile Truck; this skate ramp on wheels comes with a BBQ and camper shell; it’s also armor plated and based off an Adam Haynes design.
Manchester United fans, your watch has come: Hublot’s Red Devil Bang sports a red and yellow colorway on a black ceramic case; the 45 min. timer equals a soccer match half.
Made with solid oak + stainless steel and fitted with a chunky glass top, this Offside Football Coffee Table’s dual functionality is designed to minimize any objections of the feminine kind.
After a three year hiatus, Red Bull Rampage is back, and we found the freeride mountain biking footage above as exhilirating as ever. It’s held at Zion National Park in Utah.

For golfers who like high-tech, Ogio’s Anomaly Golf Bag features a lightweight exo-skeletal frame, a 10″ Uniter 15 club top, 3-point ergo handle and 13 accessory pockets. Thanks, Ben!
K2’s Auto bindings feature a cable fed tow strap, eliminating the need to use two ratchets and ensuring an even hold across the entire foot: in short, very shreddable. Thanks, Ben!

While $2k seems steep for an isolated exercise machine, we like the Ab Solo’s creative merger of shooting hoops and doing crunches; it even keeps score. Feel the burn!
Gamer Grub is an unusual energy drink that sounds like a geek’s typical diet; with flavors like Action Pizza, Strategy Chocolate and Racing Wasabi, we really hope this tastes good.
We love multifunction gear, which is why we like Suunto’s Core Watch: designed for outdoorsy types, it packs an altimeter, barometer and compass. Oh, and it tells the time, too.
Skate 2 isn’t just another skater game; it frees the player to get on and off their board at any time. Feeling obnoxious? You can even kick your skateboard at innocent passersby.
