This Titanium Mouse Isn’t Made by Apple

titanium-mouse-by-intelligent-design-00

Undeniably one of the best looking mouses we’ve seen doesn’t come from Apple, but it comes in the form of the Titanium Mouse by Intelligent Design. Hand-crafted in the Netherlands, this is a great example of combining sleek design with the latest technology. The futuristic mouse features an ergonomic palm-fitting body, Grade 1 titanium shell, and a neodymium magnet scroll wheel that provides the user with smooth and functional control. Tech and style geeks should be all over this.

It takes only a few seconds to make your beer frothy; simply pour a little bit of beer into the Beer Foamer, swish it around, then pour it on top of your for the perfect presentation. Don’t be surprised if one day you walk into your favorite hipster bar and find this device being used by your bartender while serving up your beloved IPA.

Take a Look: Inside the 9/11 Museum

inside-9-11-museum-33

It almost seems like yesterday my Dad was waking my whole family up a little after 5 a.m Pacific telling us that we need to come look at this. In shock at what we were looking at on the television screen, it became even more evident after seeing the second plane hit that this was no accident. I was a freshman in high school when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center, but I was old enough to know that this would forever change the course of not only America’s history, but the world’s.

mahabis-slippers-00

Slippers are made to be comfortable, but the funny thing is most of them are far from it. Starting with the sole, you’ve probably noticed the slippers you bought from Wal-Mart are hard on your feet. That’s because they were simply designed for convenience and not for comfort. Mahabis however was designed for both, and they are reinventing the slipper game just the way we’ve always imagined.
