Yesterday, Vladimir Putin presented his country with a belated Christmas present: the Avangard hypersonic missile. According to Russian media, it's capable of reaching Mach 20. And if its ability to conduct evasive maneuvers at high velocity is as good as the Russian president boasted back in March, it would render missile defense systems effectively useless.

Tide just announced a new alternative to the classic bottle of laundry detergent. It basically looks and works just like a box of wine, which is sort of funny because of that whole meme about teens eating Tide Pods. But the new Tide Eco-Box is no joke. It’s actually a glimpse into a future where Amazon is dictating what our stuff looks like.

richard buckminster fuller (1895-1983) was one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century and his legacy is increasingly relevant in our age of diminishing resources and technological development. in the 1920s he was already envisioning housing, transportation, mapping, engineering, and construction systems that anticipated what we are living today. and although he’s mostly known for the iconic geodesic dome, it was his ability to think across disciplines like science, engineering, architecture, design and art what really led him to achieve important and lasting contributions.

As we advance into the future, more and more of our devices need charging: phones, tablets, headphones, watches, laptops, peripherals, speakers, and more.

Sure, you can charge things one or two at a time, but to be honest, ain’t nobody got time for that. It’d be much more convenient if we could charge everything at once.

Enter River Bank, the portable power station that might make all of our charging dreams a reality. It can charge up to six devices at once — even your laptop.
