One thing you should know about the Chinese Year of the Snake is the meaning behind this 2013 is...steady progress and attention to detail. For this reason, all of the "Year of the Snake" shoes have and will be released have acute craftsmanship and very detailed oriented. Nike chose to use their Huarache Air Zoom 2K4 design which was originally released in 2004 to show their steady progression in shoe innovation. The "Year of the Snake" Nike Huarache without a doubt portrays a feared serpent once you lay eyes on it. A blood red upper encompasses the mainly leather sneaker which is brought to life with a matching red and blue snakeskin gold lined toe and heel. To top it off, these basketball kicks have the appearance of a snake's eye at the mesh ankle cutoff, the Chinese snake zodiac sign at the tongue, and a smooth white sole which resembles the glossy belly of those cold-blooded reptiles. As precise and well fabricated as snakes are, why not have that type of attention on your feet? Set to be released January 25th at select retailers and at Nike.com.

A home speaker system at its finest. No need to worry about dragging your phone or laptop around the house as you go from room to room. The new BEM Speaker Trio shares three different wireless speakers that can be seperated 120 ft away from its home charging base, where the speakers share their wireless connection. Even though each speaker is fair small (approximately 6"x6"x6") they surprisingly hold up to 6 hours of battery life while delivering unmistakeable high quality audio. Once this system is set up for use, it can be paired and controlled by any iPhone, iPad, smartphone, or tablet with up to 25 ft of working Bluetooth range.

The two most common ways to damage your smartphone is by either dropping it on a hard surface or dropping it on a liquid surface...water. There are tons of big and bulky cases that can protect your phone from anything short of a bullet, but at that point, you're smartphone's most likely doubled in size and weight. However Liquipel 2.0's nano technology is able to waterproof your smartphone without any kind of hard body case. The way it works is...your smartphone is treated by the Liquipel formula which creates a coating around the entire phone, including the sockets which then creates a watersafe barrier around the smartphone. If you're more of a visual learner, check out the video here. Now they need to develop a coating that makes it shatter proof.

BONUS: Sesto Elemento means sixth element.
The dark knight of the Lamborghini family has finally started production. The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento was first seen two years ago at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, but went back into hiding until now. The Sesto Elemento is to be the lightest Lamborghini produced at just 999 kg which will in turn yield a power-to-weight ratio of 1.75 lbs per horsepower. To give a little perspective...the Aventador weighs 1575 kg and the Bugatti Veyron weighs 1880+ kg. So as a result of the extreme dieting...the Sesto Elemento can go from 0-62 mph in just 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph. At just 20 supercars, you'd have to be no one less than Bruce Wayne to afford one.
