FLOATING SURF GRIP
For travelers the GoPro is the #musthave gadget. So far nothing new. But, for surfers, the GoPro wasn't really useful. If you fell, the camera would sink and sleep forever with the fishes. Luckily, those days are over. Thanks to the Bobber Floatable Grip.
This grip does what needs to be done. It floats. That means it safe to take you GoPro with you when you go surfing. And that means awesome amateur footage awaits you. What are you waiting for. Book your tickets to Bali!

AROUND THE WORLD
IN 125 YEARS
If you love traveling as much as we, you’re probably curious to find out about as much places as possible. But that’s all future talk. Unfortunately there’s no such thing as a time machine that allows us to travel to the past. However, National Geographic (NG) and Taschen try really hard to relive the ‘good old days’ by using paper.
WHERE TO BUY AN IPAD
A lot of people these days have gadgets from Apple. iPhones, iPads, Macbooks... Almost everyone has at least one. But what us travelers intrigues is the huge prize differences all over the world.
So, it's time for you guys to finally know where it's best to buy one. Knowing this will literally save you hundreds of dollars. Apple is from the States so it's not that weird to find out they're pretty 'cheap' over there. But certainly not the cheapest. For this you need to travel to Malaysia.
If you're from Argentina you're out of luck. It's probably cheaper to to buy an airplane ticket to Malaysia and buy one there than in your own country.
Sometimes we just love gadgets. By sometimes we mean not really often. It sounds a bit negative and it actually is. We think like this because most of the time gadgets are overthinked and just not for us. Except for this Doorbot Doorbell.
The beauty of this little gadget is in it's simplicity and the need of knowing. Knowing who's at your door, even when you're not home. Because that's what this little devil does. After someone pushes the doorbell your smartphone or tablet gets a notification. Once you activate the app you're able to see and speak to the person who pushed the button.
This way you can tell your visitors that you'll open the door in a few seconds or say you're not home. Even when you're on a holiday on the other side of the world. As long as you have wi:fi of course.

FOOD & DRINKS
What's your favorite? Red? Blue? Black? Gold? You don't know what we're talking about? It's about mr Johnny Walker of course. Their Platinum blend is now available in the US and yes, that's worth writing about.
To be completely honest with you guys: we're not really good whiskey drinkers. We try, we really do. But it seems like we're having trouble adjusting to the bitterness of the drink. That having said, we do like to order a glass or two when chilling in a random hotel bar. And with this new Platinum blend by Johnnie Walker, we've got 1 more option to choose from.

Excuse us for giving boats and yachts a litle bit more attention then usual. That's probably because the weather over here keeps getting better and better... Today we want to show you the Antagonist yacht, by Artofkinetik.

BOOK: COOKING WITH NAPALM
DO YOU LOVE EATING SPICY FOOD?
You don't mind a Ghost Chili or two? Or are you just fascinated how come some people on this planet can eat these things without feeling sick for a few hours? Read this Cooking with Napalm book!
For most people time is money. Having a private jet is quite nice, but it doesn’t really save you time. Well, that’s about to change thanks to this Saker S-1 Jet. This personal airplane reaches a top speed of Mach 0.99, which is ridiculously fast.
This toy of course doesn’t come cheap. It will cost you at least USD 7,000,000. But hey, as we’ve mentioned before, time is money, so maybe you’ll earn it back one day (we doubt that though). All the negativity aside, it’s pretty awesome to have your own jet of which you don’t even need to have any military training, right?

GUCCI'S FIAT 500
BIG ITALIAN MUSCLES
This feels like a collaboration from heaven. Fiat and the luxury fashion house Gucci. But, when we think about it, it sounds logical. Both are big Italian players in their profession.
We think that a normal Fiat 500 is one of the most beautiful cars ever build. Now that Gucci customized it, it even got more beautiful (we didn’t know that was even possible).There are also a whole lot of cool goodies you get when you purchase this car. Want to know which? Check the images beneath.

ABANDONED THEME PARK
THROUGH THE EYES OF PATRICK KAUFFMAN
Beautiful landscapes are a big trigger to start a new travel adventure. Some places in this world a hard to come by but do exist. Take for instance this abandoned theme park in Germany. Photographer Patrick Kaufman got up close and personal and shot some truly amazing images.
Rarely does a photograper come across a place like this. This is such a place that makes you want to visit Germany and it's hidden theme park. In this case we know where this is but we don't want to spoil fun for future travelers. Kauffman reaches extraordinary heights with these pictures, that's one thing that's for sure.

VESPA 46 PIAGGIO
PIAGGIO'S NEWEST SCOOTER
It’s been a while since we’ve last seen a cool and decent Vespa scooter. Which actually is pretty weird because Piaggio’s scooters are very popular in the Netherlands.
The coolest thing they could do (and did) with a brand new Vespa is keeping in mind the design of the old MP6 from 1946. It’s obvious they used this almost ancient design if you look at the lines of the design. And it’s still modern.
The Vespa 46 is up for release in 2012 and comes with a 155cc motor. We don’t know how much money this thing costs so we can’t help you with that.

AREAWARE ALARM CLOCK
THANKS TO DESIGN, YOU'RE ALWAYS ON TIME
We write and talk a lot about different iPhone cases and docks. It’s interesting you know… We just keep stumbeling upon cool new docks. Today isn’t different. Take a look at this Areaware Alarm Dock
Most iPhones are put to sleep next to the bed. On a night stand. This can be done in a more fashionable way. And for that you need the Areaware Alarm Dock.
The Alarm Dock uses a nostalgic product language to meet the progressively thin and disappearing profiles of consumer electronics. Place an iPhone or iPod Touch running a flip clock app onto the dock, and see an iconic and meaningful form return to your nightstand.
Kosten: €35,- inclusief 'lip clock app'

LEICA IPHONE 5 CASE
DESIGNED BY MAXIME DE KEISER
Leica has gone hipster. It’s been like this for a while (even before Instagram existed) but it seems like it’s getting even worse. Not that we mind, but still...
The benefit of Leica going hipster is the fact that their amazing cameras reach a bigger audience. You’d still have the ‘price tag problem’ but more an more people know now what Leica is. So does Maxime de Keiser of Les Forges MDK. Hij created this concept iPhone cases but we predict that these will hit stores pretty soon. Just like those Vans sole cases.

During Baselworld 2012 OMEGA presented their all new Speedmaster racing watch. And the only thing we can say is wow. This could even be the most beautiful watch they've made so far. And we're not even exaggerating.
The first Speedmaster came out in 1957 and was worn on the wrists of men and women driving high-performance automobiles. But that time has gone. This new one has a 40 mm stainless steel case with a matt black aluminium tachymetric ring on its bezel.
The Speedmaster Racing is powered by an exclusive OMEGA calibre 3330 column-wheel chronograph which delivers such reliable timekeeping performance and stability that the chronograph comes with a full four-year warranty. A huge winner from Omega for 2012. Don’t miss the video at the bottom.
Price: around € 3.500,-

TRAVEL BAG ROLL
MADE BY DEWARS X FSC
We like riding our bikes. Not just because we’re Dutch, but also because it’s good for the environment (and our health). So when we stumbled upon this Travel Roll we immediately knew we had to buy one...
This roll is constructed out of water repellent waxed canvas and trimmed with leather straps. The good thing about this product is the fact that it’s multi-usable. It can serve as a dopp kit, a tool kit, or a knife roll for the accomplished chef.
Can it get any better? Yes it can. The travel roll is accompanied by a custom Dewar’s flask and custom monogramming is available for an additional USD 15.

A few weeks ago we received a new headphone. It was this Skullcandy Navigator Black/Black. The company said we could try it and do whatever we want with it. Well, we sure tried it and now decided to give it to you. Maybe.
Before we get to the giving away part, we first want to explain why you want this one so bad. Maybe after reading these words, if you don’t win (we can’t all be winners), you might consider buying one. But the buying part is not really that important. It’s important for you to know there actually is something else except Beats by Dr. Dre.
The thing we like about this Navigator headphone is the fact that it’s not that massive. In a way, it’s even quite elegant. We’re no DJ’s and we certainly don’t like wearing a huge headphone. It looks ridiculous and messes up the hair you know (plus it's also bad for make-up, so we're told) ... Anyway. How about the sound? Well, that part is taking care of, seriously. High tones are pretty decent and the bass is for sure not as good as a random Beyerdynamic, but those headphones will cost you a bigger part of your salary then this gentleman. For just USD 100 this is the perfect choise for you.
Extra cool is that this Navigator is compatible with your smartphone so it lets you take phone calls and has a microphone so people can actually hear you on the other side of the conversation.
As we've written before. We decided to give this awesome headphone away. Interested? This is what you need to do to participate.
GLAD GARBAGE TENT
THE BEST FESTIVAL SOLUTION
You probably like attending festivals around the world just like us. But something has bothering us for quite some time know, and it seems like Glad (big trash bag company) has found the perfect solution.
Glad came up with an idea to make a disposable tent in which you can sleep during your favorite festival. At the end of your music adventure you simply turn the tent in a trash bag, collect your waste and head home. This way your life becomes a lot more environment friendly and the people at the festival have much less work cleaning up.
Win win for everyone? Looks like it because the tent was tested at SXSW 2013 and received lots of positive feedback. Hopefully its just a matter if time before we see (and use) this thing at our own favorite festivals.

BLUELOUNGE IPHONE 5
One of our favorite gadget manufacturers goes global with their latest iPhone 5 Minidock. And that's something we cheer for! Oh, the dock also looks very slim and cool, which of course is also very important.
Bluelounge used to focus on the Americas only, which resulted in some disappointed faces her at our HQ. We ordered the PlugBug but found out it wasn't compatible with our voltage. Well, that's no longer possible so we just placed our order. You should do the same you know...

INCREDIBLE STONE VILLA
Sometimes we come across a home or appartment that's just to good to be true. Today that happened. Again. Take a look at this extremely cool villa that's called Les Cavalies in Provence, France. The interior (and exterior) will leave you flabbergasted.
FERRARI F12 BERLINETTA
SUCCESSOR TO THE 599
Forget the Bugatti Galibier we wrote about a few days ago. Meet the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. The fastest Ferrari ever build. This is the car everyone wants to have (except for those who live near spead bumps).
