I just bought one of these for my office. Google will have nothing on us after we launch these suckers all over the work space!
I think I have voiced how I feel about Facebook, so this is pretty wild to me, the facebook friend sleeve tattoo, BEHOLD. To tell you the truth I am not even going to try to hate on this, I think it is pretty gnarly and definitely original. The tattoo is composed of 152 friends and was designed by Pretty Social and the tattoo artist is Tattoo Dex.
In commemoration of the BMW 328 75th anniversary (no, not the leased 328 in your neighbor’s garage), Bavarian Motor Works has created what really can only be described as a breathtaking reintepretation, recently revealed at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Como, Italy. Aptly called the BMW 328 Hommage, its resemblance to the original 1930′s 328 is a bit of a stretch, but BMW has managed to create a striking if not downright sinister look using a mix of throwback queues and stylings from modern models including the 6 series, Z4 and Vision ConnectedDrive concept revealed at the Geneva Auto Show.

When was the last time you memorized a cell phone number? Put a picture in a photo album? Created a real, physical invitation for a party? Thanks to Facebook, we don’t have to deal with any of those inconvenient, non-technological, memory-related things anymore. In our opinion, that’s change for the better. With Social Memories, you can document everything that happened on the social network quickly amassing more information about you than even Google. Social Memories takes all your pictures, albums, likes, favorite vocab words, popular status updates and a bunch of other socially important statistics and then aggregates it into a book perfect for your coffee table. Or, if $27 seems a little steep for what’s essentially a narcissistic trip down memory lane, you can make a book for free and share it with all the same friends that are in it. $27
I don’t know if it is because I am hard to impress with cool stuff, or I just see so many gnarley things searching for stuff for zoot that I have become numb, but this is a product that really got me excited. The company is called WeWood and they make watches that are made completely from natural wood. Feel the difference nature can bring. Completely absent of artificial or toxic material. The best part about these time pieces is that when you buy one, they will plant a tree because of your purchase. They have partnered up with tree planters, American Forest, the nations oldest non profit conservation organization. One Watch One Tree One Planet is their moto, and not only are these watches impacted the Earth in a amazing way, they are also friggen awesome looking, double whammy. They range from $119 to $139 and are available for men and women. My birthday is coming up so if anyone wants to buy me one I won’t be upset, thanks. Go to their website found here to get yours, and mine.
There are few things in life as serious as a bullet. Most of us don’t have to rely on one of man’s most deadly weapons on a regular basis, so we don’t have use for bullets regularly. Pens are a different story. Signing checks, bar tabs and taking notes will be less of a chore and more of a reason to show off – if you have a Fisher Space Pen that’s made from a real .375 caliber bullet. Getting your point across will never be as easy as it is with this bullet pen. You can buy it here for $25.
Thomas Meyerhoffer’s portfolio is something other product designers would kill to call their own — or certainly smash their 27-Cinema Displays in sacrifice. His first success came in 1994, when he designed the first pair of wrap-around-lens ski goggles, the Smith V3. In 1996, he led Apple’s eMate design team, which preceded the iMac. From 2002-2006, he created rear-entry snowboard bindings for Flow that allowed boarders to click in while standing up, and he developed the Chumby portable computer. Given this pedigree, it’s only natural that in 2008, he decided tackle surfing by starting a surfboard company. The Meyerhoffer 2 series is Meyerhoffer’s latest creation and is described as a “shortboard in a longboard”. Essentially, the design pushes the widest point of the board further to the rear, to provide responsive turning while maintaining an easy paddle and glide on smaller surf. Ranging from 8.1 to 9.6 ft. big guns, these minimally-styled wave riders have clearly made a splash in the surfing community, judging by the fact that the entire 2011 line is already sold-out. The good news is that more on are on the way for you Spicoli’s in the audience. So keep an eye glued to their site if you crave an oversized pantone-colored tongue depressor of your own.
