Usually on my birthday, i have a fun wishlist gift guide of things i’m lusting after. Well, i’ve decided to mix it up a bit this year, and answer a frequently asked question of what i actually use, love, and bought that i’ve discovered lately… So here it is… in huge collage form… there’s more than what you see above on the next page! Click the images to jump over to read more about them… and while it’s 2am before i have a morning flight… there are also links below with some brief descriptions of why i love them at the bottom (though, i’m fading fast, so this might be added in, or fleshed out a bit, after i land!) Anyhow ~ go explore it all on the next page!!!


Wacom Inkling - It’s all about getting the settings right, then its a dream to use to get sketches and handwriting into the computer (and editable) quickly. This one even travels with me now!
AR Drone - So fun. Can’t wait till NOTlabs start hacking it up…
JCrew Red Leather Cashmere Lined Gloves - i had a craving for red leather gloves… before i head into the cold today!
Clare Vivier Messenger Bag - so soft, in luscious leathery goodness… i have given in to the silver!
Contour+ - we have tried a LOT of mini HD action cams this year (go pro, gopro2, gobandit, etc) ~ and this is by far our absolute favorite! The ability to preview via bluetooth on ios/android is AWESOME… and great hardware design and packaging…
RAM Mounts - BEST. MOUNTS. EVER. And their incredible modular system has something for just about anything you can imagine… their patented ball joints are genius… and they are all made in the US… more to come on that soon… I’d love to someday make some modular art installations out of their awesomeness. (Also of all the suction mounts to use on cars ~ love theirs the most so far.)
Rimowa Salsa Deluxe - Hard to find me traveling without these!
Mushroom Kit - It’s so fun, crazy, creepy, fascinating…
Visual Complexity - Page after page of visual/infographic goodness…
Jawbone UP - while i did strip mine down pretty fast ~ read more on why it’s currently my favorite alarm clock/sleep tracker.
Sonicare Diamond Clean - It has a cup it charges in! and a USB travel case! Oh, and it cleans your teeth amazingly…
Escort Redline + Escort Live - radar detector that links up with your phone? Nice UI, nice hardware, and the perfect system to complement a fun car…
Playseat - when not in the fun cars… you need the seat for playing games… this sure beats trying to mount the driving wheel to a table, etc…
GT5 - gorgeous!
Need For Speed The Run - … and while GT5 is gorgeous/simulator like, i love the silly arcade like world of Need For Speed.
Logitech Wheel Ties it all together…
Vosges Peppermint Dark Chocolate Bar - Mmmmmm my favorite flavor of the holiday season ~ and pairs deliciously with The Macallan above…

Happy to see UP getting some love! I’m mildly addicted to mine… Also jealous of your GT5 setup.
