With unrivaled quality and practicality, a small company out of Germany gets Sneakhype’s vote for the best iPad case on the market. Each case is handmade to your specifications, so each is truly one of a kind. I have had both versions of the iPad and have had cases by Incase, Apple, and others, and I have been twice as happy with my germanmade case than any other I’ve owned. Unlike popular minimalist cases, these cases actually protect your iPad in a practical manner that allow you to throw it in your backpack or briefcase (or satchel for your hipsters), but the birch wood enclosure doesn’t add nearly the weight you think it might. The binding allows it to angle just the right amount on your lap. My iPad 2 fits snug in the rubber corner grips, but can easily be removed to put in the integrated stand. The thing even has a magnet in it so it does the automatic on/off thing — a nice touch. Besides all the legit reasons to like it, I think it looks frikkin’ dope. The germanmade site has a configurator where you can design your own — chose your color, materials, even emboss… More →
These guys have absolutely killed it with this video, and their last one for “Wings”. Really diggin’ what these guys got going on right now. Let us know what you think!
This is the Animal Chair collection. It was designed by Spanish artist Maximo Riera. We actually showed you his Octopus chair a little while back but Maximo has since added a Walrus and Rhino chair to the collection as well. So dope. He also plans on creating Lion, Beetle, and Whale chairs in the future. We can’t wait to see how those turn out.
Today’s video is actually the trailer for “The Rum Diary” starring Johnny Depp. The film was adapted from Hunter S. Thompson’s novel, ”The Rum Diary” and tells the story of an American journalist named Paul Kemp who moves to San Juan, Puerto Rico to work for a failing newspaper. Once he is there, Kemp indulges in all the alcohol, drugs, and women Puerto Rico has to offer. The film is set to hit theaters October 28th.
Chad Ochocinco just got himself a pair of custom gold plated Beats By Dre. He hired jeweler Ben Baller to make the pair of one-of-one headphones which are outfitted with over 500 grams of Gold (Gold is currently over $1,400 an ounce). Take a closer look after the jump.
Just watched this documentary on Lions, Tigers, and Leopards. Check this out: a cat’s night vision is 8 times better than humans’, largely due to a reflective coating they have on their eyes that traps in light. It’s because of this coating, called the “tapetum,” that makes cats and other animals’ eyes glow in headlights or flash photography.
There have already been quite a few Air Yeezy 2 sightings but this is the first time we have spotted the new Yeezy’s in the Zen Grey colorway. Kanye West debuted the new colorway last night while on stage with Jay-Z performing their hit “Otis” at the MTV Video Music. The new Zen Grey’s look very similar to the original Zen Grey’s. They feature a zen grey upper with a glow in the dark sole and solar red lining. No word on a release date yet but we’ll keep you updated.
Now this is a trend I can truly dig. Planking, owling, and whatever else are good for a few laughs, but I actually think most of these are dope. This is called Sleeveface, which is “one or more persons obscuring or augmenting any part of their body or bodies with record sleeve(s) causing an illusion”.
