    GoPro: Wingsuit Flight

    Nov 27, 15 • 687 Views • VideosNo Comments

    It’s no wonder GoPro is doing such a good business in action cams with videos like this. Featuring a debatably sane adrenaline junkie by the name of Uli Emanuele, it aims to make a mockery out of our extreme sports feature by showcasing a wingsuit flight...

    Lofoten Opera Hotel

    Nov 6, 15 • 674 Views • AdventureNo Comments

    Despite looking more than a little bit like Gandalf’s Middle Earth holiday home, the Lofoten Opera Hotel is a real thing – an 11,000 square meter hotel and residential complex in Norway’s Lofoten archipelago and a spectacular architectural triumph....

    Stump Cracked Log Table/Stool

    Oct 14, 15 • 643 Views • GearNo Comments

    Despite looking like a prop from Lord of the Rings/Harry Potter/Insert your fantasy film franchise of choice here, the Stump is actually an ingenious twist of authentic natural materials twinned with modern tech created by Duncan Meerding, and winner of Best...

    Breuer Cabin

    Next time you see someone rooting through a skip or driving rubbish away from the local refuse don’t be too quick to judge – they could be scavenging materials to make something like the Breuer Cabin. Beginning with an uncompleted, ramshackle old hut it...

    Being a legit cool surf dude requires a few simple things – a stereotypical haircut and tan, the ability to pull off at least two rad moves on the waves and a flagrant disregard for your own personal safety. Unfortunately the latter often precludes...

    Cliffside Casa Brutale

    Jul 31, 15 • 505 Views • HabitatNo Comments

    Teetering on the high cliffs above the Aegean sea, this Cliffside Casa Brutale concept is just itching for a Bond villain to raise enough cash to actually set the thing in motion – though we’d wager any such villain would soon end their evil ways in...

    Parrot has made a name for itself building fancy tech toys and remains unquenched in its thirst to churn out Bond-esque gadgetry for big kids. This time it’s taking to the water with the new Hydrofoil Drone, which promises to be about as much fun as you...

    When it comes to appreciating the modern motor there are two types of audience to appeal to. Flashy concepts and revitalised classics will tick a lot of boxes for self-confessed petrol heads, but for some it’s all about the interior – how much time do you...

    We were aware that GQ Magazine had form when it comes to featuring hot girls, but we certainly weren’t prepared for the fact that this form was capable of giving Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret a run for their money. So when they say they’ve...

    Everyone loves a hammock, and you don’t need the best hammock money can buy to enjoy the unbridled comfort of a simple, portable lounger. The most basic balls of string will do the trick but get yourself a good one and suddenly being stranded on a desert...

    EcoCapsule

    Jun 11, 15 • 660 Views • Multipurpose, RidesNo Comments

    Despite looking like a slightly roomier version of those pods in The Matrix that store humans, EcoCapsules are a far more appealing space to be enclosed in and just about the most futuristic retreat we’ve seen yet. Roomy enough to comfortably house two...

    Railway House

    Jun 4, 15 • 682 Views • HabitatNo Comments

    It’s not entirely clear why this semi-detached house decided to separate itself from its neighbour, but going by the interiors we’re guessing it’s not because the owners of the Railway House were frustrated with the loud music but couldn’t afford to...

    Bah, plywood. You’re so 1990s! These days if it’s not a composite blend of at least five different elements and has carbon nanotubes sprinkled over the top we’re not interested. But on the other hand – self-assembly flat-packed go-kart that’s...

    When it comes to superheroes you don’t get much better than Batman. When it comes to video games based on superheroes you also don’t get much better than Batman – or at least where Rocksteady Studios is concerned. After releasing two critically...

    Givenchy was fairly late to bat in the watch arena but has been making up for lost time since. Designs such as the Seventeen Titanium Automatic Edition seem like something worth waiting for as well, achieving that delicate balance between eye-catching and...

    Would it be churlish of us to describe the Volkswagen Beetle as a “Marmite” car? Some people like it apparently. Actually they love it – eulogise about it – it’s one of the most iconic staples of motoring history and this is despite the fact that...

    Getting away from it all is all we’ll ever end up doing if people keep creating luxurious abodes in the wilderness like this. It’s the Nahahum Canyon Cabin, near Cashmere, Washington, created by Balance Associates Architects as a 1500 foot square two...
