A new iPhone case promises to make monitoring your vital signs even easier. Called Wello, the case has sensors built in that can give you a picture of your overall health after holding it a special way for just a few seconds. The slim device measures your heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, and blood oxygen levels and displays the ECG waves from your heart — you can even test your lung function through a small included attachment you blow into.
Wello is open for pre-orders today in United States as well as Canada, China, India, Hong Kong, Singapore, the United Kingdom and across the EU. Early buyers can earn $10 for each person they get to pre-order — depending on how many people you refer, tracking your health could be not only easy, it could be free. $145

It might be cold outside at the moment, but that isn’t stopping Dyson from launching its new range of cooling fans in the UK.
The new Dyson Air Multiplier fan is, claims the company, up to 75 per cent quieter than previous models without compromising on that “blow-ability” the previous models are famous for.
It’s not just the noise levels that have been reduced for the new fan-less fan. The cooler comes with a new remote, a new sleep timer, and the chance to set one of 10 airflow settings to make sure you stay cool.

The country of Mexico has no shortage of stunning bachelor pads, and the CHK Arquitectura designed House Maza is among our personal favorites.
The contemporary dwelling was completed back in 2012, and features 5,263 square feet of living space. The home is situated in a natural setting surrounding the Lake of Valle de Bravo, and blends nicely thanks to the lush vegetation running all throughout the home’s facade. In fact it’s almost difficult to tell where the outside ends, and the inside begins due largely in part to the massive floor to ceiling windows and doors that open the interior up completely to the outside elements. The residence has been equipped with a multi-car garage in the basement, and a tour through the house reveals individual spaces designed as scenes – providing a unique experience for visitors and residents alike.

Maiden Noir has teamed up with Japanese brand Buddy for Spring 2014. Buddy is a small independent footwear company based in Osaka, Japan and was founded in 2011 by Tetsu Iizuka. The footwear is handcrafted with care in small batches. For the Maiden Noir Spring 2014 collection, the brand produced a mid-top Chukka in three versions. Next to a special round collaborative leather tag on the laces, a special in-sole tag has been designed. We especially like the more subtle black/vegetable tanned leather option from the collection.
