Add This Picard Action Figure to your Collection: Make it So

When it comes to Star Trek, I am Team Picard. That said, I do like the new Star Trek films as well. Action figure collectors and Star Trek fans will want to add this impressive Jean-Luc Picard action figure to their collection.

QMX’s photo-perfect action figure of TNG’s Captain is 1/6th scale (12″ tall), and it’s not cheap at $199.99. But the figure is incredibly-detailed, with screen-accurate Starfleet uniform, more than 30 points of articulation, and comes with several interchangeable hands and weapons.

One of those appears to be the flat facepalm hand that memes are made, as well as a cup of tea, earl grey. The figure is available now at ThinkGeek or direct from QMX.

The soul of a motorbike in the body of a bicycle

Designed to be everything from your primary mode of transport, a recreational two-wheeler for adventures, to your last-mile commute device, the Maxfoot dons many hats. With its robust-yet-foldable frame, and wheels that were designed to take on any sort of terrain, the Maxfoot MF-19 is easily shaping up to be the best, most affordable two-wheeled electric ride out there.

With its chunky 6061 Aluminum alloy frame and 4-inch treads, the Maxfoot sort of hovers in the intersection between being a motorbike and a bicycle. When you ask the makers what it truly is, the answer seems to confirm that too. The Maxfoot was made to battle congested roads while providing a solution that’s safe, energy-efficient, good for your health, and easy on your wallet. It packs a pedal-assisting rear-wheel motor with a wattage of up to 1000, along with 7-speed Shimano gear system. Powering this motor is a 14Ah battery that delivers a remarkable average of 60 miles on a single charge, with pedal-assisted speeds of up to 28mph. To make these rides as smooth as you’d expect from a motorbike, the Maxfoot houses a dual-suspension on the front and a 6-bar linkage suspension on the rear. Right up front, each Maxfoot comes armed with a 5″ backlit smart-LCD dashboard display that even doubles up as a power-bank, allowing you to connect and charge your smartphone or GoPro while on the move.

The Maxfoot’s tech specs are pretty marvelous, but two things truly steal the show. The first is its portability. The 6061 Aluminum alloy frame imparts a sturdiness and lightness to the Maxfoot, but its folding design is what truly makes it a portable solution. With two hinging points, the Maxfoot folds in half right near the seat, and its handlebars fold inwards too, making it occupy less than half of its footprint, allowing you to stow it in your house, carry it up and down the elevator with ease, or even stash it in the backseat of your car if you’re using it for last-mile travel. Its second show-stealer is its phenomenally competitive price-tag. With an early-bird price that’s lower than the retail cost of an iPhone, the Maxfoot gives you a reliable, robust, energy-efficient mode of transport that can get you from A to B in a jiffy, no matter where you are. Available across three tiers, the Maxfoot is built to be water and dust-proof, allowing you to comfortably take it for a ride in the rain, on the beach, or even off-road, and each bike comes with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty.

This GPS enabled Salomon ski goggle ensure safety is a button away

Backcountry skiing is adrenaline packed, snow-oriented frenzy that certainly isn’t for the faint hearted! As with all adrenaline-fueled activities, there is an underlying element of danger that keeps participators on their toes but is ready to catch them off guard at any moment… with backcountry skiing, this threat is avalanches.

The Salomon Vector offers a heightened level of safety over your standard pair of ski goggle; packed into the striking design is GPS module that, when activated, communicates with the paired mobile app that your family and friends will have installed on their phones.

Activating the alert is nothing short of an intuitive fuss-free method of interaction; a single, large button is positioned on the top face of the goggles, when the user feels as they are in danger they simply hold the button down for five seconds… and wait.

This pair of sleek, stylish and safety-focused goggles have the skiers safety at the forefront of their design!

Designer: Sebastian Halin for Salomon
