Seven different LEGO sets will be available from spring 2015, ensuring lots of racing action and squealing tyres in the children’s room. A large red Ferrari truck drives up – together with the Ferrari F14 T Racing car. What’s more, a McLaren Mercedes pit stop set will also be available, featuring the McLaren Mercedes MP4-29 as well as the home stretch with lights function and two Porsche cars – the 911 RSR and 911 GT3 R Hybrid. Also four sets of stand-alone vehicles wait to hit the track.

Automatic

automatic-xl

The check engine light — that enigmatic indicator that can signal anything from a loose gas cap or old spark plugs, to a worn out catalytic converter or an empty windshield fluid reservoir — is hardly an effective way of remaining in-tune with your car. But with Automatic ($100) you can finally decode that uninformative light, letting you know what kind of help your car needs and potentially saving a trip to the mechanic. And that’s not all it does: helping improve your car’s fuel economy, alerting emergency response in case of a crash, and automatically remembering where you parked are just a few incredibly-useful features.

Automatic plugs into the same port your mechanic uses when you take your car in for service. It’s easily accessible near the steering wheel.

Add in that its beautifully-designed iOS and Android apps are constantly updated with new functionality, and you get the partner your car always needed.

The Mystery Bottle – A Deck of Cards Perfectly Preserved Inside A Solid Glass Bottle

u8d1iehowwy9w6dwnmrl

The Mystery Bottle is an impossible object: a deck of cards, perfectly preserved inside of a solid glass bottle. The cards are real – sealed in cellophane and wrapped in kraft paper. The mystery: how did they get inside?

The deck of cards is wider than the mouth of the bottle, and the glass is guaranteed to be a genuine, unaltered milk bottle. Shake it as much as you want – the deck cannot be moved or removed. Each bottle contains one deck of Mystery Box Playing Cards, created by JJ Abrams, Bad Robot, and theory11.

The Mystery Bottle is an art piece handcrafted by Jamie D. Grant in Canada. He’s been featured in Ripley’s Believe It Or Not and TEDx Emory – but his secret method remains a mystery.

Each bottle takes hours to create. It’s a labor of love that reminds all of us that the things we think impossible maybe – just maybe – might be within our grasp.

You can purchase the Mystery Bottle HERE for $100 and $10 per bottle sold benefits 826 National, a non-profit that promotes creative writing in schools and workshops around the USA. Help us share the wonder.
