My Xmas list 2015!

7 Dec

Xmas is around the corner and better be ready when the guy in red jump down the chimney …Here’s my list and links, mom you know the drill now …

1. I already have a Biscuit and a Huntington Hop but I think I’m missing the Logger by Hamboards ($299), what do you think?

2. I need a bag that won’t move while skateboarding and running, the Base-910 (from $94.99-$104.99) by Equilibrium ticks the boxes with its comfortable fit tailored to hug my body and distribute the weight evenly while land surfing. Also, I can customize it thanks to accessories pouches and this comes handy.

3. I would like to upgrade my tennis game and compare my forehands, backhands, serves, smashes, volleys and spin to the ones of Rafael Nadal, Timea Bacsinszky, Benoit Paire, Sam Querrey … Easy with the new Babolat Pop, the first connected tennis wristband by Babolat. I can, of course, challenge my friends too. Price: $90

4. What about a steadycam for my iPhone 6? I want to “go Spielberg” while shooting my webtv episodes of Chase It, the Show! The Smoothee Universal mount (by wellknown brand Tiffen) is calling my name for only $149,95!

5. To walk (and land surf) the world, I would fancy the limited edition sneakers by Vans which teamed up with The North Face to make the best shoes for for cold and wet weather. No need anymore for the ugly big boots to tackle the winter days! Gusseted tongues, reversed waffle lug out-soles, heat retention, extra grip, water-repellent leather and suede uppers are on the menu to make it the ultimate winter shoes! Available at selected shops around the world. Prices for the MTE range spread from $90 to $130. The #VansxTheNorthFace are hard to get, check on Vans official website.

6. I dreamed about Jiro and his sushis for many years now. Friends of mine told me that he opened a restaurant in NYC. After a little bit of browsing the web I found the restaurant Sushi Nakazawa operated by Dayisuke Nakazawa (apprentice at Jiro’s restaurant in Tokyo). It seems to be the closest to Jiro’s experience and I want in! Degustation menus and sake … About $500 for two.

7. I don’t like the sound of my keys digging in the pocket of my pants, that’s why I need a Key-Bar. I’ll take the titanium bars and stars ($80) with the following options toothpick & tweezer set ($15), key ravines 2.0 ($10).

8. I love jerky (it’s lean, full of protein and omega-3) and I’m into DIY these day, so I think I would like to start making my own jerky. Fleisher proposes a kit “the Fleishers Jerky Crafting kit” with everything but the meat for $29,99. Time to grill!!

9. I’m always running around and I always need to charge my phone … the best of both worls is called Ampy. Ampy is an external battery which charges itself with kinetic energy. Basically, the more you move the more the battery charges itself!! Price: $99

Happy holidays to you all!!

My Xmas list 2013

1 Dec


Dear e-Santa,
This is my 3rd Xmas list yet! And this year again I chose smart products with an edge.
I hope you’ll like it and that the trunk of your car will be big enough to carry it all home 😉
1. Nest Protect
Now that it’s a legal obligation in many countries to have a smoke alarm detector home, let’s comply in style with the Nest Protect. This smoke detector is linked to your home wifi network and can even send you emails. When its alarm is triggered by your smoking toasts, just wave to the sensor and it’s muted! Price: 129$
2. Netatmo
I never know how to dress when I wake up, I need intel! Is it going to be cold, warm, raining, … I never know. With the Netatmo, you’ll be monitoring your very own weather station from your iPhone. Temperature out/in, huminidity, air quality, CO2 concentration, pollution, barometer, all in your iPhone! Price: 169euros
3. D*Haus table
This is not a regular table but a table developed following a mathematical formula invented by the English mathematician Henry Ernest Dudeney back in 1903! The Project was successfully funded on Kickstarter some months ago and is now available to everyone. The D*Haus table offers 8 low tables in 1 by repositionating the 4 distinct shapes that compose the table. Price: 1.500GBP

4. Nike Free Flyknit+
Those would look great on my Cinderella’s feet. With the feel of a sock, no need to wear a sock. The sole is a 5.0 (meaning the thickest of the Free line), super comfie! Price:160$
5. Rubik E.Ion, E.ion System
When you cook, it smells food … Normal that’s why you have an extractor hood (with or without evacuation). The E.ion system by Falmec is the future of your regular extractor hood. Not only it will take care of the kitchen odors, it will also clean the air  in your home. E.Ion models are available ranging from 2.500 to 3.300euros
6. BMX i3
Let’s go serious about electric cars with this BMX. Kilometre range is at the top of the market with 300km on a full charge. If you are out of power, a tiny regular motor will take you to the next plug.
Made of plastic fibre panels moulded and glued together (BMX invented a special glue for this car), with 4 seats and a tiny trunk, you’ll be all set for urban rides and small burbs trips. Price: 30.000€

7. Compression Calf Sleeves /UA1952b
After a long day running like a rabbit you’ll be pleased with the relief coming from those compression calves. Just put them in  after your long day and … REST, the sleeves will do the rest. You have the choice between black and white. Price: 44,95$
8. Mogo by Focal Upright
Stop lolling in your chair at the office and start thinking about an healthy position that will relieve your back, neck and shoulders. It’s also a great object, design, portable, that you will be able to use on the go. I love it. Price: 100$
9. Makerbot Digitizer
3D printer are highly fashionable but the problem is to nurmerize your ideas … not anymore with the Digitizer by Makerbot, the BFF to your 3D printer! Scan any object, edit/correct it and then 3D-print it. A must-have if you are already into 3D printing. Price: 1.550$
