Sled Handmade Wood and Leather iPhone Backs


Sled is a company out of Boston, Massachusetts and Brooklyn, New York that crafts handmade leather and wood products into classic and distinctive accessories using natural materials.

Their flagship product, the Runner, is a cowhide and birch wood back housing bezel that completely replaces the glass back of the iPhone 4 and 4S.

It works with both Verizon/CDMA and AT&T/GSM, and adds an unmistakable warmth and unique character to your phone.


…It’s Movie Monday: 10 MPH?

10 MPH

10 MPH is “a comical documentary that follows a pair of aspiring filmmakers as they quit their jobs and turn a friend’s ludicrous idea into a movie. The impulsive purchase of a two-wheeled Segway scooter sets this story in motion when the two friends decide to travel from Seattle to Boston at 10 mph in an attempt to change their lives forever… What ensues is a road trip like none other with a haphazard cast of characters you could only find on a zany 100-day trek through America’s back roads. Each poignant story the two friends discover along the way inspires a craving inside to go out and do that thing you’re supposed to do.”

What’s interesting is that they’ve taken this film to the indie extreme, making money through a partnership with OurStage, and going open source by showing you how to make your own movie with the 10 MPH DIY Manual.

The entire film is shown below, but be sure to check out the 10 MPH site to help support the cause.

“We will disrupt their workday with a mildly offensive blinking neon light”.

…Public embroidery makes vandalism cute?

Public Embroidery

Public Embroidery is vandalism that everyone can agree on. Small cross-stitched figures and words are left on the seats of buses and trains, and probably brighten the day of whoever happens to come across that seat, even if only a little bit. Just make sure to give Boston a heads up that this might be coming stateside.
