Looking Big

Looking Big

There are plenty of magnifying glasses out in the market and we really don’t need another one to join the bandwagon. By adding an unique functionality that differentiates it from the rest, the Scanning and Share – Magnifying Glass forces us to give it a second glance. The design is simple … magnifying glass, but the handle doubles up as a projector that scans and beams the portion placed under the glass.

Next-Gen Neck Support

Next-Gen Neck Support

One look at Handsome’s modern Neck Brace design and its focus is on lightness and discretion becomes apparent. While neck braces are the simplest solution for stabilizing the head, they’re often the most obvious and cumbersome. To combat this problem, the new design utilizes an open and lightweight nylon structure weighing in at just 80 grams. It not only feels cooler but is more comfortable by placing the weight of the head on the sternum rather than the collarbone.
