LEGO Leica M Camera

When it comes to the best things that start with the letter L, LEGO and Leica are pretty high up on the list. Combining the two of them has finally happened (and surprising it hasn’t happened earlier), which is exactly what Chris McVeigh did with his LEGO Leica M Camera Kit. If that name sounds familiar it’s because McVeigh is also responsible for custom LEGO kits for vintage tech and retro LEGO kits that allow you to build everything from Apple computers and boomboxes, to an arcade complete with air hockey table. The LEGO Leica M Camera isn’t the first camera replica that McVeigh designed, but it’s easily one of his best creations yet for the builder in your life.

Tarform's Electric Motorcycle is Not What You Would Expect

You have a lot of options when it comes to emission-free, all-electric, modern transport. Most are designed to be good for the planet, but sacrifice style in the making. Tarform is switching it up with a modern electric motorcycle that checks all the eco-friendly boxes while still exuding all the rat bike style you crave. This unique bike that’s equal parts Brooklyn and Stockholm (a homage to the team that started Tarform), along with Cafe Racer and Flat Tracker, combines the simplicity of form with modern technology. As the brand describes it in the video, it’s “a vehicle that embodies the spirit of craftsmanship, advanced manufacturing and a clean technology in order to distill the form to only the essentials.” That means a bike that’s capable, clean and built with the latest and greatest tech to last.

This Scrambler by NCT Motorcycles is a Beast

We’ve seen a handful of Austrian firm NCT Motorcycle’s custom bikes in the past. But their latest creation – a BMW R80 Scrambler they’ve named ‘Olivera’ – definitely makes our hearts skip a beat. Maybe it’s the simplicity to the build, maybe it’s the contrasting olive green and black paint job, or maybe it’s all of the above. Whatever the case, this completely rebuilt bike is an epic masterpiece. Even better, the build isn’t just an upgraded appearance, as it included upgrades like all-new electrics alongside Motogadget components, a powder-coated frame for extra durability, all new seals in the engine, and more.

They’ve added another stunning piece to their catalogue with this 1985 Toyota Land Cruiser they’re calling ‘Project Sequoia.’ While the name might conjure up a drive through the redwood forests of California, the drop-top style of this matte black Toyota is just as suited to beachside cruising.

Nintendo is Restocking the NES Classic Next Month

Nintendo will be re-introducing the NES Classic sooner rather than later. The retro mini-console was a fan favorite since its original launch in November 2016 and spearheaded the shift towards classic systems getting miniature updates — the latest company to get into the mix was SNK, with the Neo Geo. The NES Classic was originally discontinued in 2017 to the disappointment of many fans who hadn’t been able to buy one. This led to people being forced to buy a console through eBay, where prices tripled in the days following the announcement.

This Shower Beer Holder Is Something You Need

Ever so often something comes around and we think, do we need that? And the answer is no. But do we want that? Here, and in so many other cases, the answer is a resounding yes. What is the shower beer after all? It’s not the after work beer with a purpose. It’s not the beer you sip and savor to admire the craft of your brew. The shower beer says, I do what I want, when I want. And the shower beer holder makes that act of self-respect two steps easier.The all-in-one silicone holder grips smooth surfaces, like the glazed tile in your shower (or the marble or metal, depending your level of luxe). There’s nothing to install, just stick it on, and your can of beer will stay out of the spray of water and at the ready when it’s time for a gulp. Need? Maybe not. Want? Absolutely.
