Nike’s New Kobe A.D. : “Mamba Mentality”

Kobe Bryant’s legacy continues.

The shoe shows  a stripped down version of the Nike Kobe A.D. NXT and normal Nike Kobe A.D. as each sport a different blueprint-like design on their uppers. Each colorway reflects an emotion in relation to Kobe’s “Mamba Mentality” as purple represents being fearless, red acknowledges passion, yellow reflecting optimism, grey symbolizes Bryant’s neutral yet calm detached emotion and blue as a nod to honesty and trust.

Each model has engineered Flywire cables for enhanced support and strength in addition to a full-length midsole for a lightweight feel on court. Nike’s Zoom Air Unit is placed within its heel for impact cushioning which is complemented by an engineered micro-blade tread outsole for easy movement.

The Nike Kobe A.D. “Mamba Mentality” Pack is set to launch on August 24(8/24) as an homage to both of Kobe Bryant’s jersey numbers.

The Reality Editor App

I need this in my life ASAP!!!!!

Although the world of technology may not be as advanced as we’d like it to be, The Reality Editor is set to make your daily routine a little easier by linking together the smart objects that you own. The app culminates three years of research within MIT’s Fluid Interfaces Lab and has the ability to create an endless amount of possibilities. For example, through the app one may program your lamp to power down upon your departure of that specific room or your car windows may roll up once the stereo is switched off. Nonetheless, the goal is to make life easier while pushing the limits of man-made technology. You can download the app and find further information here
