NANOCASE BATTERY-EXTENDING IPHONE CASE

When your phone's battery gets hot, it consumes more energy. Nanocase helps extend your battery life by keeping it cool. Inside the low-profile case is a thin layer of graphene that dissipates heat from the back of your phone, resulting in a cooler operating temperature and a battery life boost of up to 20% without the added bulk, weight, or inconvenience of a traditional battery pack. It fully supports wireless charging and is available for the iPhones 8, 8 Plus, and X.

GOOGLE PIXEL BUDS EARPHONES

The comparisons with Apple's AirPods are inevitable. They're also not entirely fair. Google Pixel Buds Earphones are wireless earbuds that offer a super-easy pairing process with their company's flagship phone — in this case, the Pixel 2 — and come with a combination charging/carrying case. But unlike the super-tiny AirPods, these are connected via a fabric cable and have unique feature reserved for their users: near real-time translation. Two Pixel Bud wearers can carry on a conversation in two different languages, with Google serving as the translator. Available in three Pixel-matching colors.

1970 TUPOLEV A-3 AEROSLEDGE N007

The Tupelov Design Bureau is known for designing all manner of Soviet Cold War aircraft — from the military Tu-95 Bear to the Tu-144, the Soviet Union's answer to the Concorde. The A-3 Aerosledge occupies a much more unique place in Soviet history: It was designed to pickup cosmonauts and pilots across the Siberian tundra. The design specs stated that it had to be able to travel over snow, ice, and water. Alexi Tupelov's answer was an aerosledge — a vehicle that utilizes ground effect to skim over the ground on a cushion of air. This A-3 was spirited out of the Soviet Union and received a complete restoration in Germany, making it one of the most interesting and functional relics of the Cold War.
