Word would travel of scientist Giovanni Aldini's electric reanimation experiments on dead criminals in 1803 to author Mary Shelley before the 1818 publish of her book Frankenstein. It was an instance of science informing fiction. In turn, Shelley's masterpiece would then inspire scientist Earl Bakken to develop the first wearable, battery-operated pacemaker. This is only…

Just a few minutes south by plane from Stockholm is Gotland, a lush green island in the middle of the Baltic Sea. At the north end of the island, there’s the wildly serene seasonal fishing village of Hallshuk, where the Swedish electric motorcycle brand Cake developed, honed and officially launched its first production model: the Kalk OR. (We rode that bike along the island’s trails and a purpose-build mini-motocross track, over a year ago.) Cake’s first road-legal production bike, the Kalk&, is now available and we rode it on the considerably less idyllic streets of Manhattan to see how it adapts to one of the busiest urban vehicular environments on the planet.

Along with archival footage of Prince rehearsing for his Purple Rain tour (which occurred the same year he wrote “Manic Monday,” and countless other…

This version (now patented) became an iconic symbol of Italian coffee culture—simple yet dignified. The historically significant eight-sided machine helped to make at-home coffee brewing…

Made famous in 1969's The Italian Job, this glorious Lamborghini Arancio Miura P400 was long-believed to be destroyed, as per the film's plot.
