This weekly feature is a round-up, in conjunction with our friend Tim over at Cool Material, of the hot new products appearing online this week. From fashion tips to cool gadgets and gear, take a look at your new obsessions.
Helgrays Vintage Style Watches
They say that if you want something done right you should just do it yourself. That’s exactly what the people from newly launched Helgray Watches did when they couldn’t find the right watch. Each of the four watches combines a modern Swiss Movement from Ronda with vintage and military style design cues in a 42mm case made of 316L stainless.
Nikon 1 V3
Just announced by Nikon, the latest camera to the 1 Series, the V3, is a highly compact, interchangeable lens camera with some chops. Not only does it sport an 18 MP sensor, built-in Wi-Fi, and a new image processing chip, but it can shoot continuously at up to 20 fps with autofocus.
DeskPal Organizes Your Entire Desk
If you’re anything like us, your desk is never really all that clean. It’s not for lack of trying, either–there just always seems to be another pen, jump drive, tablet or memory card ending up on our desk.

Traditional Japanese Higonokami Knives
The higonokami knife was originally made in Japan starting in the late 1800s and is characterized by its lack of a locking mechanism and simple, protruding tang. The style was exceedingly popular in Japan until 1961 when blades were banned. Still, a few craftsmen carry on the tradition today.
GoBe Tracks Your Calories
GoBe’s claim is a big one: Wear it and it will automatically track your calorie intake. If it can really do that, it’s a game changer. GoBe works by measuring the glucose in your cells and thus eliminates the need for manual logging, estimating how many calories you think are in some dishes, and reading nutrition labels every time you eat.
Ember Equipment Modular Urban Pack
It’s hard to find one bag that could be everything to everyone, but this new modular backpack from Ember Equipment is a good candidate. In its most minimal form, the Ember Backpack is a cordura nylon 20L pack with padded internal laptop and tablet sleeves, two weatherproof exterior pockets and six magnetic lock attachment positions.
Srirachup Combines the Two Best Condiments Into One
From the same folks that brought you Barrel-Aged Sriracha, comes this ketchup with a kick. Made with organic California tomatoes, this spicy and sweet condiment will add a new depth of flavor to your fries, nuggets, or whatever else you plan on dipping in it.
Kings of Sweden
Carpet Made of Old Jean Labels
Each of these rugs has been made out of 100% recycled jean labels. Available in two sizes, the carpets are clearly going to be a focal point of whatever room you toss them in.
