The SpaceLife Jacket is designed to pay tribute to the classic spacesuits of yesteryear Almost everybody will, at some point, have harbored a desire to travel into outer space. But it's unlikely any of us will achieve this goal, unless and until Elon Musk or Richard Branson deliver on their promises to make space travel much simpler and more affordable. Still, if you can't actually make it out of Earth's atmosphere, you can at least buy the T-shirt. Or, more accurately, an approximation of the jacket worn by astronauts.  Read More

The Type 50 displays the time on the front and instructions for use on the back

To the timepiece layman such as myself, most wristwatches are bland, uninspiring tools that do one job. They do that one job extremely well, of course, but they all – with the exception of innovative watches from companies such as TokyoFlash – meld into one inglorious whole.
