You can wear this hoodie on Mars

Let’s recap what happened in the video above. The hoodie was dragged mercilessly through gravel for over an hour, then battered by the ocean by being tied to the back of a motorboat, and to dry it off, a blow-torch was involved. Now I can’t think of anything that could withstand such treatment (no, not even the Nokia 3310)… but Vollebak’s 100 Year Hoodie can, and will continuously brave the elements and survive.

The 100 Year Hoodie was named that way for a reason. Built with a Kevlar weave, the jacket will literally be with you all your life, and probably all your child’s life too. Made with space and military grade materials, found in space suits and war-armor, the jacket can withstand temperatures on Mars, 2000 washes, and over a 100 accidents (life safely, the jacket doesn’t guarantee to protect you!)

Oh, and it’s probably one of the only clothes that ages gracefully with time, like a brass ornament, or a leather wearable, looking slightly aged after years of wearing, but with absolutely no sign of damaging, or giving up!

Giant LEGO Space Shuttle Can Actually Fly

Many fans fondly remember LEGO set #1682, the Space Shuttle Launch. It was released 27 years ago, and is a classic. Well, last month Adam Woodworth created a tiny drone version of LEGO’s shuttle that could fly indoors, which was cool enough, but now he has created a larger version that can fly like an RC plane.

This version flies pretty well. Woodworth is actually an aerospace engineer, so it is no wonder it takes to the sky so easily. This shuttle is five times as large as LEGO’s original, and its made from 9-millimeter-thick foam sheets instead of hundreds of plastic bricks, which would be way too heavy. The motors were mounted to the moving elevons on its wings, which gives it better maneuverability in the air.

NASA needs to bring back the shuttle program, but this time it should build its ships from LEGO.

‘Face’ the music


Not only are the X12 much more secure inside their case, they also look like a friendly face and eyes when open, making tech more humane and accessible. The case has a rotating lid with a semi-circular opening that aligns with the semi-circular hole in the component below to reveal the concept earphones, placed one beside the other. This completely negates chances of the lid accidentally opening and revealing the wireless earpieces, like the Airpods or the Doppler earphone cases (which have flip lids).

The case and the earphones match color beautifully and come in anodized pink, blue, and black metal finishes. The earphones have an extra brushed metal plate on them, for variation. They nestle perfectly into their casing which also acts as a charging hub for them, looking like the eyes of an innocent and friendly robot head, when the lid on the case is swiveled to open… making them instantly lovable and desirable!
