Ico Bottle Opener

Ico Bottle Opener

Having a unique bottle opener can elevate any drinking opportunity to the next level, and this Ico Bottle Opener from Fort Standard out of Brooklyn is guaranteed to stand out.

Made from 3D printed matte black steel, this complex design showcases the full potential of 3D printed steel, as the design would not be possible to produce as a traditional casting.

Each of the 100 limited edition pieces is produced on demand, and comes with a unique serial number and certificate of authenticity.


…Diesel’s new watch is a freak of nature?

Diesel Freak Of Nature

Diesel’s new DZ4160 watch (aka the Freak of Nature) is definitely an interesting take on the timepiece.

Can’t decide between leather and steel, gold and silver, or futuristic and simplistic? Easy, just go with all of the above and stop worrying about what’s on your wrist.

The split-faced hybrid watch is half of one watch and half of another, and it’s all been crammed together and combined to give you the best of both worlds.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Cadillac One?

Cadillac One

When Obama goes for his inaugural ride in the Cadillac One, he’ll be the most protected president to date thanks to a slew of new safety features.

The president’s limo has always been designed to keep him safe in all but the most dire of circumstances, and this one is no different, as its designed to protect against armor-piercing bullets, projectiles, biochemical attacks, and even bombs that manage to find their way underneath the vehicle.

How much armor will be keeping the Cadillac One safe?

Try five inch thick steel under the car; Kevlar reinforced, shred and puncture-resistant tires with steel backup rims for tire-less high speed escapes; A foam filled gas tank that prevents an explosion, even if it suffers a direct hit; Eight inch thick doors that weigh more than the cabin door on a 757; and bullet proof glass in every window that will stop nearly any bullet that finds its way towards the car.

In addition, the vehicle features night vision cameras, a firefighting system, oxygen generators, shotguns, tear gas cannons, a collection of GPS and communications devices, and even a few pints of the presidents blood should he need an emergency transfusion en route to a hospital.

Don’t expect to see the president making guest appearances at any local drag strips however, since the car takes a full 15 seconds to get to 60 mph, and has reached its top speed once it gets there. Plus, he’d have a tough time getting home since the car gets just 8 mpg.

There are probably plenty of other capabilities that we’ll never know about, but it’s good to know that Obama will be riding around in what amounts to a bomb shelter on wheels when he hits the streets.

…It’s Things Thursday: Moon Dust-DNA?

Moon Dust-DNA

Even if your watch contains parts of the Titanic, there’s now way it’s as cool as the Romain Jerome Moon Dust-DNA.

With a lunar inspired dial featuring real Moon dust, a steel and titanium case that incorporates steel from the Apollo XI space shuttle, rusted steel paws that include fragments form the Soyuz spacecraft, and a strap composed of fibres form a spacesuit worn during the International Space Station mission, the Moon Dust-DNA is about as cool as they come.

Moon Dust-DNA Collection

History doesn’t come cheap, as the watch line will range from $15,000 to more than $500,000, but it’s hard to put a price on exclusivity like this.

…1333 Minna is ready for Fall?

1333 Minna

1333 Minna has been featured on DYH before, but with the release of their Fall line, I figured it was worth a second look.

1333 Minna Hats

With artists like Reyes, Steel, Retna, The Mac, Amanda Lynn, Ewok, Norm, Belsky, Dylan Maddux, Who Cares and Gaussoin making up The Collective, 1333 Minna is bringing together some of the top names in the world of graffiti, and letting them free in the world of design.

Plus, with Amanda Lynn as the first female artist to join the collection, 1333 Minna now also features purses and scarves as they continue to expand their offerings.
