ICON Prints by DKNG Studios

The idea behind the ICON project, as told by designers Nathan Goldman and Dan Kuhlken: “Every film has one. A signature prop, set, or location.

Examples include Office Space, Groundhog Day,…

The clock has a built-in antenna that receives signals from the WWVB radio transmitter in Fort…

Kanex DoubleUp — Two-Port USB Wall Charger for iPad and iPhone

As the title suggests, the Kanex DoubleUp is a wall adapter that accepts two USB cables. It’s powerful enough to charge two iPads relatively quickly, thanks to each USB port’s 10.5-watt output, and it has helpful status LEDs on the front to let you know if your device is fully charged (green) or still charging (orange). I like that it’s small enough…

Rotring 800+ Mechanical Pencil and Stylus Hybrid

The Rotring 800+ is a combination of stylus and retractable 0.7mm mechanical pencil. Give the cap a small twist to extend or retract the mechanical pencil—while retracted the 800+ acts like any other stylus, perfect for use on an iPad. The hexagonal metal barrel adds a certain heftiness and quality that feels great in the hand, and thanks to its knurled grip,…

Cameron Moll’s Letterpress Posters

If not, now is a good time to look at his store because he’s having a buy-one-get-one-free sale until July 31, 2014. My personal favorite is the…

The bttn

The bttn is an interesting little gizmo that reminds me of a Griffin PowerMate but without the volume-dial component. What looks like a simple colored button (hence the name) is actually a web-connected device capable of executing interesting commands, similar to those of one of our favorite services, IFTTT. In fact, IFTTT is a service bttn is capable of tying into, along…
