This is one of the most unique rings ever produced. Crafted from aerospace grade titanium, it is a comfortable and smart looking ring. Hidden inside is an assortment of useful tools. It has a working bottle opener, a straight blade perfect for cutting packing tape or fishing line, a serrated blade for tougher things like nylon strapping or those tough to open electronics heat sealed packages, a saw for cutting plastic and wood, and it has a comb! Although the comb is tiny, it actually does a surprisingly good job on the 'stache or head! You would be amazed at just how handy this ring is.
The ring is custom made in exactly your size. The width remains at 9mm. The Brushed finish seems to work best, so I left off those options. The inside of the ring gets a polished finish for comfort. Although the ring can be engraved, the internal lines will affect the letters a bit. I recommend the Roman font if you will be engraving inside. There are brass rivets that hold the plates together, and they add a touch of class.
This utility ring is not to be confused with a toy. It is a finely engineered and crafted piece of functional art that anyone would be proud to wear.

first imagelimited edition 'blade-runner' hard drive for LaCie by philippe starck
influenced by the mysterious, incredible power of information technology, french designer philippe starck has collaborated with
LaCie to create the 'blade runner' - a limited edition hard drive that combines an anthropomorphic metal interior with an angular
cage-like shell. the concept asks the question; can we truly confine technology to a cage? with only 9,999 produced, the device is
made available with 4TB of memory and comes equipped with 10GB of complimentary
'wuala secure cloud storage' and user-friendly backup software using high-speed USB 3.0 as its main interface. featuring an LED
power button indicatior coming in the form of starck's signature symbol, the hard drive is wrapped and protected by an aluminum
exterior case, shielding the inner-components from overheating, ensuring file preservation. "in my design nothing is useless –
style, symbolism or functionality," says starck. "in the 'blade runner', the warm interior electronics
are encased in a mystifying shell, and the blades are the radiator that cools it down. the suspension gives space for air to circulate
around the hard drive, and the metal material increases the temperature conduction."

TV+Wheelbarrow-ish stand = TV Barrow
We love watching movies in bed, but we also love watching stuff in the living room. To fulfill both loves, we built a wheelbarrow for our screen so we could easily move it around and maneuver up and down small steps.
The 700c road bike wheel is attached to a bicycle fork. The rest of the parts are machined aluminum connections that fit around standard 1″ aluminum tubes. Each component is secured with set screws so the legs are collapsible and the tilt of the screen is adjustable.
TV Barrows are built to order.
