Walking down the streets of Chicago, two guys happened upon a 1920s Magnavox R3 Horn Speaker in a shop window. Inspiration struck and they decided to create their own representation of a modern horn speaker. This is fantastic for a few reasons. We love gramophones and horn speakers for the looks and the sound, but don’t have the wherewithal to modify an old school one for our new devices. It keeps the vintage aesthetic, clean lines and sound, but modernizes the way you use it. 3:4 scale reproduction of the original horn, Bluetooth 4.0, 3.5mm input and a built-in lithium ion battery for up to 15hrs of playback time. You read that right; it will work completely wirelessly. We finally have a way to get vintage sound through Spotify.

If you’re looking to unplug on your next vacation, you could stay at a quaint bed and breakfast filled with doilies and wicker, or you could trek out to Scotland to stay in The Beermoth. The converted 1956 Fire Service truck is now a small living space complete with oak parquet flooring, a hearth and kitchen for cooking and for heat, and a rugged appeal that won’t be matched. The side panel can be rolled up so you can take in a bit of nature from the comfort of your bed or relax at night with the breeze and a bottle of Scotch. At around $100 per night, it’s the way to take in the Scottish countryside.

The ROK Espresso Maker is a non-electric method of making amazing espresso; choose your coffee blend, play with the grind, apply the pressure.

It doesn’t quite produce the espresso that a professional machine with a steam boiler could however it comes mightily close. As a general rule it requires 8 – 10 bar of pressure to extract all the flavour when making coffee to produce a ‘full fat’ espresso. The ROK can achieve this through manual and variable pressure and this where others, mechanical or otherwise, fail.

The ROK is easy to use and clean and once you have experimented with grinds and pressure you can create lovely crema. No more wasteful pods and coffee blends that are average at best.

A traditional sailing boat that once carried cargos of spices across Indonesia is now available for couples to charter – at a cost of £17,000 a week. Boasting a private chef, a spa therapist, and decked out with antiques and art, Alexa is a luxurious two-masted vessel made for just two people. With one 31-metre cabin, the motor sailor is Incrediblue’s newest addition, and is now available for explorations around the Indonesian Archipelago.
