Christopher Ward, Has done it right!
This is the watch, you can have many others but this watch is it! Powerful, strong, elegant, simple, you could keep going.  Try not to be fooled by the $1,030, price tag, this watch is worth much more than that. Save up this will be your go to watch. Omega, has held that honor for years, in my book, but wow you can't deny this watch it's due!

Given that amateur geologist William Gregor discovered titanium in Cornwall in 1791, you might have expected us to have introduced this strong and lustrous metal into our range before now.

However, it was worth the wait. The C11 Elite is a true titan of a diving watch and is guaranteed to win admiration and admiring glances in equal measure.

With the strength of steel, but 45% lighter, combining with remarkable anti-corrosive properties (particularly against sea water), titanium could have been created for use in diving watches. When you add the precision engineering of one of the best and most attractive cases available, incorporating an internal countdown bezel, to the finest Swiss made helium release valve and a design that oozes with stylish authority, you begin to understand why our resident diver, Chris, is drooling over this particular watch.

Only 500 C11s in this colour combination will ever be produced which will make this legend-in-waiting even more desirable if thats possible?

Brakeboard gives skateboarders a brake!

The Brakeboard is a skateboard truck (axle) with a built-in brake system. It allows for powerful and controllable stopping and smooth speed control down steep descents.
Until now, stopping or controlling a skateboard down any hill at speed has been a challenge. Foot braking and power-sliding require a high level of riding skill. With the Brakeboard, all riders can enjoy controlled hill descents, either by maintaining a velocity continuously or simply braking from speed at a hill's end.
The brakes fit any longboard and can retro-fit your existing board. They ride like any normal truck retaining the regular turning abilities. Pushing and sliding are also not affected by the brake. You can even use your existing longboard wheels.
The Brakeboard is an excellent way to introduce yourself to the sport of longboarding and, for the initiated, it adds a further dimension to riding.

Unfold, Add Water, Have Fun! Oru Kayak

What's really to say, folds into a nice, little big, messenger bag. Now I am sure there are limits to where and what you should really go out in, but for the easy going, take a nice paddle up the coast this is perfect. Storage, well fold up stick in a corner of the garage and well, all done.

We’re a new company dedicated to unlocking the wonder and discovery of the great outdoors— even for city dwellers.
At Oru Kayak, we believe that spending time outdoors makes people happier, healthier, and more productive. Our products offer a way to explore and connect with the natural world—even when you live in a city. We hope your Oru Kayak journeys are as fun and fulfilling as ours have been.
Designer and founder Anton Willis grew up in rural Mendocino County, with easy access to rivers, lakes, and the ocean. In 2008, a move into a small San Francisco apartment forced his fiberglass kayak into storage. Inspired by an article on new advances in the art and science of origami, he sketched a few ideas for a folding kayak. Sketches turned into countless paper models, and over 20 full-scale prototypes. After user-testing on dozens of bays, lakes, rivers and oceans, Oru Kayaks are ready to explore the world.

Lezyne Drive Pro

Simple, looking like a light from a Model T, this light is perfect and portable. Clip and go.
The lens is made of high-grade optical material and serves as an activation button that cycles through four flash and one solid mode. The CNC machined aluminum body makes the Drive a durable and weather resistant light. The Composite Matrix back plate can be unscrewed to replace the two CR2032 disposable batteries. The multi-position silicon rubber strap attaches directly to the back plate to secure the light to a wide range of handlebar and seat tube diameters.
The price seems to be right anywhere from $14-$28.

Head Trauma, Reebok Has a Solution! CheckLight

At CES 2013, mc10 and Reebok revealed the Checklight, a product built to help protect athletes who play football, hockey and other impact sports. Today, you can purchase one of your very own in men's, women's or children's sizes for $149.99 from Reebok's website. For your money, you get the sensor strip, a skull cap to keep it snug on your noggin and a micro-USB charger to keep it powered up.
For those who've forgotten, the Checklight's a head impact indicator powered bymc10's flexible electronics technology that gives athletes and medical personnel simple, actionable information about impacts to the wearer's head. It's not a concussion detector, per se, but it does provide information about the location, number and intensity of impacts to your dome -- so it's a valuable tool that can help identify those in danger and keep them out of harm's way. Well worth $150, we'd say.

A ‘SMART’ BALL, Basketball That Is!


  • Instant feedback - shot by shot or every dribble 50 different head-to-head competition choices 
  • Skill-based leveling workouts that get more difficult as you improve 
  • QuickTrain shot analyzer for shot speed, shot arc, and backspin 
  • QuickTrain ball-handling for power dribbling, speed dribbling, and off-hand dribbling 
  • Works with Android 4.0 and greater and iOS 5.0.5 
  • Stores workout and competition history for up to 4 players for 3 months 
  • Indoor/Outdoor synthetic leather cover 
  • Wireless recharging and up to 8 hours of battery life Up to 90 ft. range from hand held 
  • Men's and women's/youth sizes
Used in conjunction with the four included training apps – including one allowing head-to-head competition against anyone, anywhere also using the technology – 94Fifty provides players instant feedback and hard data, allowing information to be processed in real time, facilitating faster improvement.
The basic philosophy is simple: That which gets measured can be improved, and too many aspects of training in basketball aren’t measured. A coach can call a jump shot “too flat,” lacking the proper arc to go in consistently, but that language is imprecise. Instead, the ball will communicate the exact angle of a shot to a smart phone and tablet. If 45% is what a player needs, he’ll quickly learn what that looks and feels like coming out of his hand.

2013 Outdoor Must Haves!

Coffee is definitely a luxury at the campsite, but nothing will put more pep in your step than a tin cup full of java before you hit the trail. For the longest time, this meant packing along a sandwich baggy full of grounds and a couple filters and brewing it like a hobo, but this nifty little gizmo from Handpresso changes all that. Using a pre-pressed coffee packets and a hand pump to get the right water pressure, the Wild Hybrid is undoubtedly the most portable espresso machine we’ve ever encountered

There’s something to be said for completely unplugging every so often, and even though high-tech gizmos definitely aren’t necessary for getting out and enjoying nature, we here at DT we know from experience that the right assortment of tech gear can make outdoor excursions simpler, safer, and more fun. These days more and more companies are making gear that’s designed to withstand the elements, so we’ve rounded up our favorites and put together this definitive guide to the best summer outdoor gear.

Ringtool at

Ringtool is designed to provide maximum functionality with minimal form. It's manufactured in the same hardened and tempered stainless steel Leatherman uses on its multitools so is durable and strong enough to last several lifetimes despite being virtually weightless. It can be kept on a keyring for bike adjustments, assembling furniture, adjusting snowboard bindings, opening that ritual end-of-the-day-beer, and other miscellaneous daily needs. It’s easy to use too, much like the turning of a door key, between the thumb and bent forefinger. To be clear, this tool is not meant to replace more serious tools but rather to be readily available in the case of emergency or spontaneous need. 
I am an industrial designer with several years of industry experience bringing good ideas to life. I’ve worked alongside manufacturers and engineers to take countless products to market, from with conceptual sketches to production part. In addition to experiences of my own long-distance bike touring and cycling within the city, Ringtool was the product of countless conversations and testing with cyclists, mechanics, architects, designers, and material experts. I have quotes from two foundries located in here in northeastern USA for both tooling and prices per part so all I need now is your help with the funding to be able to pull the trigger for the first batch.
If this campaign is a success and you receive the tool I would love to hear your feedback and will try my best to incorporate any changes you think might make the product even better in the next version. I am deeply appreciative for your considering to support making this long time dream of mine a reality.
