Tesla Solar Roof- Powerwall 2

Tesla Just unveiled a game changer in the Solar world. Tesla Solar Roof is an integrated Solar panel into a roofing material. This product is both functional and beautiful

Musk said the secret to the Tesla solar roof appearance is a special coating that becomes more or less see-through depending on your viewing angle. He described it as a series of micro louvers that work like a privacy screen on a laptop, and said the company is working with 3M on the tech. The effect is dramatic in person. From shallow angles, the tiles appear nontransparent. But as your viewing angle approaches 90 degrees, the underlying solar cell becomes more and more visible. The result is a tile that permits the passage of sunlight from overhead, but still looks opaque to anyone at ground level.

For those concerned about the strength of the Tesla solar roof made of glass tiles, Musk showed the audience footage of a drop test to demonstrate that the glass was tougher than materials like clay and slate. “It’s never going to wear out, it’s made of quartz, it has a quasi-infinite lifetime,” Musk said.

“We need to make solar panels as appealing as electric cars have become,” Musk said. He wants to make every roof solar, by making it irresistible. “It needs to be beautiful, affordable, and seamlessly integrated. If all of those things are true, why would you go any other direction?” Why, indeed. Musk makes a strong case, but it’s one he only partially supported this evening; Tesla’s panels certainly look good, but Musk provided no details on pricing, availability, or the installation process.

A Better Battery

The solar roofs are designed to be used with the Tesla Powerwall. Version 2.0, which Musk also unveiled today, is a bright white rectangle, and flatter than the first version, which Tesla released in April 2015. It will cost $5,500 for 14kWh of storage and 7kWh peak power draw. That’s enough to power a four bedroom house for a day.

The new roof and battery are both part of Musk’s master plan to save the world through sustainable energy. Yes, you could go out and buy a solar system now, but the large, purple-black sheets of glass don’t exactly blend in on a period house—or most other properties, for that matter. Beyond a certain grudging respect for your green credentials (and lower utility bills), they don’t make the neighbors jealous in the way a Tesla Model S in the driveway does.

Hatching Dragon Candle

Great Balls of Fire. The Hatching Dragon Candle is here.

Just light up the wick and as the wax begins to melt, the scaly exterior will fall away to reveal a rather coy looking baby dragon.

Everyone knows that if you want to rule the Seven Kingdoms you’re going to need a little assistance of the ‘fire-breathing’ kind. Whilst you’ll never be able to fully train a dragon (no matter what Dreamworks might have you believe), this hatchling gives you the unique opportunity to nurture a close bond while it’s still young.

Aquafaucet Waterfall Spout

These types of faucets are getting more and more popular and this is one of the nicer variations on the market, made by Aquafaucet.

It’s a single handed bronze faucet with ceramic valve.

What you’re paying for here is quality, materials, and most importantly the design and look. You don’t buy this faucet just for functionality; the people who buy this are attracted to the design and the unique look, or think it’ll improve a bathroom or other room with a sink somewhere in their home. That’s what makes it worth it, and it certainly does look great in a lot of different bathroom settings so we can see why it’s a popular product right now.

Ventless Table Top Fireplace

This sleek tabletop fireplace is made by a company called Moda Flame. The fireplace is portable and can be used in any indoor or outdoor setting. It requires no chimney or ventilation thanks to the ventless ethanol fuel that it burns.

Because it runs on ethanol, it gives off a very minimal amount of heat. So this is not the right product if you’re looking for a heat source to replace a traditional fireplace. But if you’re looking to add visual appeal to your home and reproduce the visual effect that a fireplace creates, this is a really good choice for any room in the house.

The ethanol required to run the fireplace is sold separately and is not included.

This particular fireplace model, called Vigo, can burn for approximately 2.5 hours without refilling the tank.

Sentient Live Edge Table

Live edge is a term that refers to furniture made using the entire tree, including the “live” part of the wood- the outer rings.

When a piece of live edge furniture is created, a log is cut into slabs and the entire slab is used, leaving the natural edge.

Live edge furniture design can be found in large pieces like beds and tables, but also smaller ones such as lamps.

Some of the highest quality live edge tables available on the market are crafted by a Brooklyn, NY company called Sentient.

They create a variety of pieces but might be best known for their live edge dining room tables. The picture below shows a live edge table created from two pieces of maple bridged by glass.

Sentient colorado live edge glass dining room table

Live edge furniture is typically created by expert woodworkers that know how to bring out the unique features of each slab, because no two starting pieces are alike (and no two finished pieces will look the same).

Sentient have become experts of this craft and their work goes beyond building for the home- they design and build live edge tables for the restaurant/hospitality industry as well. Over time they’ve built a very solid reputation for the quality of work they deliver.

Here’s another example of a live edge table, one of Sentient’s larger pieces:

Aside from tables, you can find a variety of other live edge furniture on their website including couches, chairs, beds and nightstands.

If you’re looking to invest in a truly unique piece of home furniture for yourself or a family member/friend, we recommend checking out the site. If nothing else, you’ll see some amazing photos.

 

LP Record Clock

Vinylux has come out with a LP Record Clock that’s made from an actual vintage 12″ record. Each one is unique and the artist is randomly chosen when you order. So you can’t choose specific bands or albums.

You can choose between a couple different genres though. Here’s the list:

  • Rock
  • Soul
  • 80’s Pop
  • Jazz

We also found a hip-hop version on the JackThreads website.

These clocks are a good way to add some vintage style to your place. They make a good conversation starter when guests come over because the eye-catching unique look.

If you happen to know a musician or somebody that loves listening to music this might make a nice gift too, and it’s relatively cheap ($40 at the time of writing this).

 

Occam Coffee Table

The simplest solution is always the best. If you’re going to be eating, reading a book, or enjoying a drink in the living room, why not have a table that can accommodate all of this?

It’s about time we get a table that adjusts depending on what you’re using it for.

Eating in front of the TV isn’t taboo when your table has a lift top that raises to lap-level. And serving drinks to guests without even going to the kitchen is easy when you can store glasses underneath.

There’s plenty of room under the lift top for other items too- plates, books, magazines, the TV remote, or whatever else you keep in your living room.

Install a small sound system. Use it as a hidden wine cabinet. There are a ton of options. You could get pretty creative with the storage space that this table provides.

The Occam Coffee Table could be used in any size home, but seems best for an apartment or smaller home where each living area is used for multiple purposes. Since most apartment dwellers get more than one use out of each room, why settle for a coffee table that only provides one single use?

The Occam Table is also a great gift idea, especially if you know somebody that’s moving into a new place.

Here’s a photo showing how the table looks when closed. It’s a great sleek/modern look:

Here are the features/specs:

  • 47.24 x 23.6 x 16.33 inches (120 x 60 x 41.5 cm)
  • The table’s surfaces lift from 16.33 inches up to 21.45 inches ( 41.5cm to 54.5cm)
  • Almost no assembly required- 10 minutes out of the box
  • Extended 3 year warranty to cover mechanical components (hinges, etc.)

 

It’s worth noting that your order can be customized as well. If you want the tabletop to lift in the opposite direction, just tell them and they’ll make it. You can also request different colors/finishes. The standard is material is Walnut with a white gloss painted finish.
