The newest addition to the Thodio arsenal, the A-BOX is straight from the army-literally. An original ammobox with 2 x 70-watt amplifiers and woven kevlar speakers (the yellow stuff used in bullet proof vests) the A-BOX pumps out crystal clear sound, even at high volumes, and comes equipped with an integrated rechargeable battery. Your iPod/mp3 player can be connected on the outside during peacetime, or inside of the box so you can protect your iPod from bullets and stuff.
Put a Ring On It
In the realm of automotive-themed fashion accessories, there's a fine line between gimmicky trinkets and the truly intriguing. This ring falls in the latter category. Launched in 2010 out of the NYC area, Kinekt Design rings fuse together a modern aesthetic with nifty physical interaction. See those gears? They actually work, spinning both sides of the handsome ring-a product "complex enough to play with, yet simple enough to wear."
Named after the most badass of cross-continent rallies, the L.G.R. Dakars do sufficient justice to their namesake. Like any vehicle in the Dakar rally, these sunglasses are built to take a beating: handmade Italian celluloid acetate frames and mineral glass-tempered Barberini lenses that are both impact resistant and hard as hell to scratch. Add to that the retro, elegant styling, and you've got yourself a surefire winner.
Catch of the Day
Regular old table-top aquariums too pedestrian for you? Bored with your flat-panel tv? Here's what you need: the AquaVista 500. A sweet, wall-mounted aquarium sure to bring any room to life. Ideal for fresh water tropical fish and equipped for saltwater environment, the self-contained unit goes anywhere you can hang a painting.
An Elemental Touch
Looky here-a collection of superbly crafted Suunto timepieces exclusively manufactured in Finland. These stylish, urban-inspired watches combine unparalleled craftsmanship with precision digital technology in a unique coalescence of function and form. The collection consists of three watches: Elementum Aqua, Terra, and Ventus, specifically designed for Diving, Mountaineering, and Sailing. The names directly translate to Water, Earth, and Wind, which are the three elements that surround the activities the watches are designed to help navigate through. Too bad it wasn't Earth, Wind, and Fire. Love that band.
Always Be Prepared
Unless you're a dedicated weapons specialist, you probably wouldn't need half the stuff on this new gadget. But the last thing you need to be worried about is having the right tools on you at the right time. From a beefy combo straight/serrated field blade, needle nose pliers, and fuse-wire cutters, to a carbon scraper, bottle opener, large bit driver and more, the Leatherman MUT EOD has everything you could possibly need for your specialized line of work. All in a compact, menacing stainless body.
