Super.Natural Men’s Striped Sport Tee
When it comes to versatile workout tees, style usually takes a backseat to performance. But Super.Natural’s Striped Sport Tee looks as good as it performs.

Having an organized tool chest is one thing; keeping it organized is another. Triton’s PowerMat and MagClip use rare earth magnets to keep your sockets and hand tools organized and in place, whether on the wall or in cabinet drawers. When you go to look for that socket, you can be sure it’s right where you left it (not down behind the tool cabinet). Learn More

It doesn’t matter if you’re changing up your swing or sticking to what you know best; Ecco’s Biom Hybrid golf shoe will adapt.

It’s a premium speaker that leaves you looking like a musical savant. $2,700

Dom’Up treehouse
Dreamed up by a Dutchman and designed by a Belgian, the Dom’Up is a luxurious treehouse — but it’s built to not hurt any trees. The cabin is held up by an innovative fastening system that allows it to float in between trees. Its floors are made from natural wood and the structure is primarily galvanized steel. And in the end, you’ll get 172-square-foot of treetop living. ~$28,000 ()

Chromebook Pixel 2
Armed to rival Apple’s new 12-inch MacBook, the Pixel 2 is the fastest Chromebook yet. It features a 5th-generation Intel Core processor, a 2560 x 1700-pixel resolution touchscreen display, a USB Type-C charger that promises 2 hours of battery life after a 15-minute charge, and that’s just scratching the surface.

When it comes to modern electronics design, everything tends to fall under Apple’s shadow, at least in conversation. Sony Design: Making Modern is a reminder from renowned designers Deyan Sudjic, Chip Kidd and Ian Luna that the look and feel of our everyday objects has just as much to do with the Sony Walkman and Handycam as it does with Steve Jobs. $75
