Turing Robotic Industries Phone – Those worrying about the NSA listening in on their conversations and reading their texts now have Turing Robotic Industries on their side. The Turing Phone places a great deal of emphasis on security and offers server-free encrypted communication. In addition to the securing your messages the Turing Phone also touts a material that is stronger than steel. Turing’s “liquidmorphium” is a metal alloy that’s reportedly stronger than steel, and as light as titanium. The specs for the Phone can use a little help and offers a processor found on flagship devices from 2014, but with a large 5.5 HD screen the phone resembles other premium smartphones.

adidas x Avengers adizero primeboost – Unless IronMan is rocking a pair of the adidas adizero primeboost in Age of Ultron, this special project between adidas and Marvel is a lesson in “DON’T.” All the research and development that went into educating adidas fans and loyalists about the premium runner goes out the window when you slap a cheap “Avengers” logo across the heel. I haven’t seen the movie, but I can guess that Quicksilver or the Hulk aren’t reaching for a pair of primeboosts in the flick. This excellent, well-made, running shoe has nothing to do with the movie, and this project is a cheap and dirty way for a sneaker giant to jump on the bandwagon.
Senz x Maharishi – It’s tough thinking about buying an umbrella when you live in Los Angeles, but for those that don’t live in a perpetual drought, rain showers are a part of life. Combat water from the skies with style thanks to the ongoing project between Maharishi and Senz. The accessories maker started making their high-tech canopy-style umbrellas for the UK menswear label last season, and this time Maharishi is using their celebrated camouflage patterns. Look for the Digi-Camo and the Park-Camo to make an appearance on the storm-proof umbrellas.
Spyderco Roadie – After the tragedy that occurred in 2001, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), but a strict prohibition against knives of any kind. In 2013 the TSA planned to allow knives that met a specific guideline, and Spyderco went to work to create the Roadie. Now, the TSA later withdrew their plans, but the Roadie was still a huge success thanks to its rugged design and compact design. The knife is best known for it’s “Double-Dent” holes that allow a quick flip for those who have short nails. Originally available in black, the Roadie is now being offered in red, blue, orange and grey.

atmos x ASICS Tiger GEL-Lyte V – As a sneakerhead since the late-’90s, atmos was the spot in Japan. This little boutique brought the heat. From the co.jp to their own little projects, atmos was ahead of the game. They’re a little late when it comes to the ASICS collaborations, but they definitely come correct. The new GEL-Lyte V does everything right with the use of camouflage, black, olive, and the finely placed gum outsole. This an enticing approach to a classic runner, and will drop next Saturday, May 2.
