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.
Chicago Comb Co
Chicago Comb Co. Matte Black Steel Comb
Everyone knows that one of the easiest ways to make something look cooler is to finish it in matte black. The Chicago Comb Co. has done just that with the new edition of their popular Model No. 1 comb.
Scratch-n-Sniff Jeans Smell Like Mint
The scratch-n-sniff coating will release a cool mint scent that will last for up to five washes – depending on how you care for them – and will help counteract your natural odor. They’re available in a slim fit that tapers from the knee down and are made with Japanese fabric.
Cobra IRAD is a Radar Detector For Your iPhone
Besides handling your standard radar detecting functions, the device works with an app on your smartphone to deliver live updates on cop sightings, speed traps, and other things you might want to be aware of if you have a lead foot. It provides 360-degree protection and can display information visually on your screen.
Cool Material Shop
Mvmt Watch Collection
Each is made with the same attention to detail and high-quality parts as many more expensive watches, but there is no crazy markup that leaves your wallet aching.
Stanley Sons Checker Set is Also a Bandana
We really don’t play checkers all that much, but that might change when the weather gets nicer because of this new outdoor set from Stanley & Sons. The board is a 22″ x 22″ cotton bandana that’s discharge printed squares. Each of the twenty-four game pieces is a handmade ceramic checker glazed and stamped with S&S on the bottom.
Graphic Design Card Desk
The Design Deck features the standard 52 cards each with pieces of useful design information plastered on them so you can grasp the basics of graphic design while you play.
OurVodka is Truly Local Vodka
“Our/Vodka believes in local power. We believe that things don’t have to be done in a certain way just because they’ve been done like that for a long time. It’s locally produced, hand bottled and engaged in our community.”
Canvas Watch Co.
Canvas Watch Company Crowdsources Watch Design
Yes, this is another watch company launching on Kickstarter, but the crowdsourcing for Canvas Watch Company doesn’t end with the platform they chose to launch on. Rather than applying numbers and markers to the face of the watch itself, they’re printed on the inside of the sapphire crystal.
