A classic look on one side, a digital smartwatch below

For years, fitness monitors and smartwatches have packed a lot of cool functionality into rather unflattering packages. Unlike a stylish analog timepiece, a bulging digital watch with glow-in-the-dark numbers doesn't necessarily look great with a suit or even casual-Friday ensemble. To get the timeless look of a true analog face, however, you have to give up some of the smartwatch convenience of a digital display. Or do you? IFit has another solution: a rotating watch case that has a digital display on one side and a traditional analog face on the other.  Read More

Velospring Sen Comfort grips use oiled, polished walnut wood (Photo: Velospring / Petra Sc...

Much like the Renovo Coupe and NOX SV electric boat, the Sen Comfort bicycle handlebar grips from Munich's Velospring combine beautiful, ageless aesthetics with innovative technological design. The warm walnut wood cloaks a spring suspension system that minimizes jarring impacts on the hands and wrists.  Read More

The EX 366 is the latest expedition vehicle in Bimobil's line

The Sprinter isn't necessarily the Mercedes-Benz platform that immediately comes to mind when we think rugged, AWD expedition vehicle. In fact, Mercedes has said that the Sprinter is the number one base vehicle for luxury camper vans, not exactly a description that makes one think of muddy tracks and rocky hill climbs. That said, German camper manufacturer Bimobil has managed to create a convincingly tough expedition vehicle by planting its own living module on top of an AWD Sprinter chassis. This is one Sprinter that can travel and camp virtually anywhere in the world.  Read More

The all-new Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe debuts at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show

With a 577-hp biturbo V8 powering a 0-60 mph time of just 3.9 seconds, the Mercedes S63 AMG 4Matic Coupe isn't exactly a slouch. Or at least it didn't seem that way before German tuner Brabus turned it into an out-and-out power-n-speed machine. The S63-based Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe bolts to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and doesn't stop accelerating until the needle hits 217 mph.  Read More

The Zibock offers a new way of finding and riding fresh snow

As we've seen with past debuts like the Snolo Stealth-X and Snowbull, sledding isn't just child's play anymore. The snowbound activity is moving from neighborhood front yards to high-mountain bowls. The all-new Zibock packs small and light for hiking deep into the mountains, then assembles into a full-suspension sled in minutes, providing a sit-down alternative to backcountry skiing and snowboarding.  Read More

The Mercedes-Maybach Pullman with the Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman

The Maybach brand may not have survived on its own, but now that it's "Mercedes-Maybach," Daimler sure seems eager to grow the lineup. Following the launch of the very first Mercedes-Maybach at last November's LA Auto Show, the German luxury marque is getting a new halo. Set to launch in early 2016, the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman is a stretched ultra-luxury motor car with face-to-face rear seating.  Read More

The new Bentley Continental GT Speed

Bentley hasn't yet announced anything too groundbreaking for the Geneva Motor Show, though an all-new sports coupe concept and the much-publicized Bentayaga SUV (yep, that's really the name) seem to be possibilities. Whether or not either of those new models make an appearance, we do know that the Continental GT line will get freshened up at the show. Revisions include more W12 power, modest restyling and new options.  Read More

A single tab of Fire Dragon burns for about eight minutes

Even if you've never been in a situation rougher and more life-threatening than a KOA campground, there's something comforting about knowing that you're prepared to start a fire in the wettest, nastiest conditions that Earth can hurl at you. Perhaps that's why we're always fascinated with versatile, new fire-starting materials, especially when they have awesome names. Fire Dragon from BCB International is a new, ultra-versatile, purportedly eco-friendly way of getting a roaring blaze sparked or meal cooked.  Read More

From trike, to balance bike to pedal bike (C.C. Weiss/Gizmag.com)

New Zealand-based Wishbone Design has offered a versatile, 3-in-1 child's grow bike for several years. Last year, it made headlines by launching a model made from recycled carpet alongside its traditional wooden model. Now it's adding a modular pedal drivetrain to make the transforming bike even more versatile for growing children.  Read More
