Masters of Tradition - Japanese Steel Knives. Dyson Lightcycle 60-Year Lamp. Dyson might be a world-renowned vacuum proprietor but that doesn’t mean they shy away from the interior design realm.

Dyson Lightcycle 60-Year Lamp

In fact, their background in industrial design has helped them to advance their newest venture — an innovative, long-lasting lamp named the Lightcycle. The Lightcycle takes everything that we love about a traditional lamp system and elaborates upon it — leaving us with a technologically advanced, modern-day version of the adaptable indoor light source. Intelligent LEDs adjust depending on the amount of ambient light in the room, while an age-adaptive system actuates based on the age of your eyes. If you’re doing something that requires more (or less) light, the Dyson Lightcycle will dim or brighten after determining what you’re doing — proving the perfect light source for reading, watching television, or using a smart device. 20 Best Tactical Combat Knives of 2019.

Heimplanet Inflatable Backdoor Tent

Their latest contribution is the Backdoor Tent, a four person inflatable frame tent with a unique design, and an incredibly wide range of uses. This is one piece of camping gear that is destined to last for the long haul.

AutoAdvance Hybrid Hammer Nail Gun. Of all the tools a person should own, the hammer is definitely one of the simplest and most important.

It took six long years and at least as many prototypes to get it working, but inventor Michael David Young finally managed to create a manually-operated hammer that doesn’t require the user to hold the nails in place. Rather, in a similar fashion to a nail gun, it accepts a bundle of collated nails and auto-dispenses them as needed. Nitecore Tiny Monster TM10K Flashlight. When it comes to everyday carry, outdoor, and survival applications, Nitecore is one of the biggest names in portable illumination. And there’s good reason for that, as evidenced by their newest release: the TM10K Flashlight.
