Inherent Vice

Sure to be one of the most talked about films this December, Paul Thomas Anderson finally gives the world a look at Inherent Vice:

"When private eye Doc Sportello's ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin...well, easy for her to say.

It's the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that "love" is another of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," that's being way too overused--except this one usually leads to trouble.

With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists... Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp--all Thomas Pynchon. "

You can also get 5MP shots at 5 fps and the go-anywhere design means its ready for anything with its water/dirt/sand-proof design. The HERO4 is their most robust camera yet with 4K30 and 2.7K50 video capability (Black Model), 12MP image captures, built-in WiFi and Bluetooth, and a touch-enabled display (Silver).

Montblanc Metamorphosis II

Pens are the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Montblanc, but take one look at the Metamorphosis II and you'll know that watchmaking is a part of their business they're taking very, very seriously.

The name comes from its incredible face-changing dial that consists of 82 moving components that can dynamically switch the face to a classical layout to chronograph by just pushing the slide on the left side of the watch. Obviously it's something that has to be seen to be believed. View the Metamorphosis in action after the jump.

HK-based retail chain Kapok is getting a very special pair of sunglasses this season. They've commissioned Smith and Nobru to craft a frame from buffalo horn found in the Tibetan plateau.

Using 50 separate operations to create each frame, the horn is cut, pressed, and flattened and is then finished by hand. Definitely something to think about when you're throwing down a nice chunk of change for that mass manufactured piece that you can grab at any sunglass shop in the mall.

$450, Kapok
