GoPro HERO4 Session – The action sports photography market has been blowing up, and GoPro’s latest project looks a lot like the Polaroid Cube. Shrinking down on the already small camera is the Session, the latest entry in the GoPro line up is 50% smaller and 40% lighter than previous HERO4 models. Don’t let the low-profile fool you because it can still capture video at 1080p, has an ultra wide angle lens, and can get 10 frames per second in burst mode. It may lack an active display, but the smaller size means it can get into more spaces to create more content.

ASUS ZenPad S 8 – With smartphone sizes increasing year after year, the tablet market continues to shrink. While everyone is losing market share, ASUS is not giving up on the tablet market and releases an all-new ZenPad. The ZenPad S 8 touts a sweeping 8-inch screen that has double the pixels than other HD devices. In addition to the sharp screen, the ZenPad S 8 is razor thin and touts a 64-bit Intel Atom Z3580* processor and 4GBs of RAM. With all that power, web browsing is a breeze, video playback is smooth, and multi-tasking works like a charm. While Google has given up on the Nexus 7 and Apple has hardly improved on the iPad Mini, ASUS is making some big strides in the tablet world.

Kendrick Lamar x Reebok – While everyone is wondering which sneaker brand signed the biggest athlete, I always felt Reebok had the biggest impact when they swooped up Kendrick Lamar. The kid can spit, he’s young, connected with Dre, and did I mention he can rhyme? This hotly anticipated sponsorship has finally resulted in a limited pair of Ventilators. The classic Reebok runner arrives in a seemingly innocuous cream suede, but the heel accents tell a different story. With a bold “BLUE” and “RED” across the back Kendrick pays homage to his Compton roots, and the rubber gum sole is the icing on the cake.

UNDEFEATED x XBOX – How do you bring life back into your brand? A useless collaboration with a streetwear brand might work. Redmond-based Microsoft has tapped Los Angeles’ very own Undefeated to work on a special collaborative XBOX controller. The controller features UNDEFEATED’s block logo streaming across the front in a white typeface and is accompanied by a canvas carrying case. The military-inspired case arrives with velcro across the front, and a couple of tactical patches. This nifty collaboration will only be available to friends and family, but hint at a bigger collaboration later.
