Bang & Olufsen's BeoPlay line adds a new headphone to the collection, a new over-the-ear model called the H2. The headphone continues the lifestyle-oriented styling of the line with genuine lambskin detailing and rugged textiles. The headphone is much more compact than its larger sibling and features adaptive fit technology that molds to your head for the perfect fit. The headphones are powered by 40mm drivers, a bass port for deeper lows, and an in-line mic and remote.

Sony's gamechanging camera gets a few necessary tweaks with the A7 II. The A7 II maintains the 24-megapixel full-frame sensor that got photography world talking and now that sensor is being matched with a much-needed fater Hybrid Auto-Focus (30x faster than the previous model) and 5-axis, in-body image stabilization.
Those features might just convert those of you who have been waiting for those features to be improved and if you're hoping to pull the trigger on a 36 megapixel A7R II, that unfortunately isn't available...yet. As of this writing, the camera has only been announced for release in Japan, though we imagine a US release date will surely come soon enough.

While concept cars have become a bit tamer and tamer over the years, Lexus has pushed forward with wild concepts that take bold risks in design while giving us a good idea of what's to come from Toyota's luxurious sibling. The company's signature spindle grille is in full-effect here with a striking front fascia that looks like its ripping through the space-time continuum.
The striking lines make its way through the body and down to the unique 20-inch wheel design. The 2+2 also takes the roadster idea into the modern day with a completely roof-less design and a stunning golden yellow paint that is created in a multi-layer process and really brings out the contours of the concept's exterior...Continued

Mophie is hitting all the right buttons with their latest battery innovation, the Powerstation Plus. So what does the Plus mean?

No more fumbling with an extra set of cables when you need power on the go.
Other features include 2.4 amp charging for faster recharges, the ability to charge the phone while plugged into a power source, a thinner design, extra USB port in the larger models, and four capacity options give you more than enough power for up to 8x the battery life.

Dita sought the input of some real aviators for their Flight collection and after showing its sketches to a number of pilots, one pilot asked if there could be a navigator style created for the collection. The company then worked with the pilot and eventually drew up the sleek Flight 005. Styled in the boxier navigator silhouette, the Flight.005 has a big presence with its oversized titanium frame that is both modern and classic in its aesthetic with its subtle, sculpted temple tips and titanium nosepads that'll never wear out.

Better watch out BMW, Detroit has a new fighter entering the ring and it's one of the scrappiest pieces of hardware to ever come out of Cadillac's production facilities. The ATS-V is powered by a 3.6L V6 that puts down 455-hp, 445 lb-ft of torque, and a mind-numbingly fast 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds. Top speed? Just a little under 190 mph.
