But on top of that, the Diana+ offers a removable lens and super-small aperture for pinhole images, two image formats (12 or 16 square shots on a standard 120 roll), an endless-panorama feature, and both a standard tripod thread & shutter lock for easy shake-free long exposures. Each package includes the beautiful “Diana Vignettes” book, packed with over 200 pages of Diana history, Diana+ images, and more. Uses medium format 120 film.

C2™- Climate Control

C2™- Climate Control

The C2 Climate Control (2007) employs a patented, energy-efficient thermal technology to deliver both heating and cooling from a single, compact unit. Consuming just 1.5 amps of AC current, the C2 uses approximately 90% less energy than a typical space heater. At the optimal distance of 18″ from the user, this portable unit can increase air temperature by 32 degrees and decrease it by eight. Control the fan speed with a slide of the finger on the touchpad and change the direction of the airflow simply by adjusting the roller ball on top of the unit. The C2 not only improves your comfort level, it filters the air around you by intercepting particles of dust, pollen and dander as small as five microns. The filter can be removed for cleaning and likely won’t need to be replaced for the first few years of use. And, because the C2 is not a space heater, it doesn’t contain any exposed heating coils, chemicals or harmful emissions. No filling with water or recharging is necessary. The unit will shut itself off after four hours, as an added energy saver. UL listed and plugs into a standard 110v AC. The C2 Climate Control is a fully licensed product of Herman Miller®, Inc.

Strida Folding Bike

Strida Folding Bike

The first Strida Folding Bike (1987) was invented when Mark Sanders wanted to address his difficult commute into London with an elegant, clean and portable solution. In just 15 seconds, Strida collapses into a compact unit that can be wheeled along like a unicycle or stowed in the included shoulder bag. Ideally suited to the urban commuter, the single-speed Strida features a greaseless Kevlar chain to keep clothing pristine on the way into the office. At 19.5 lbs, it’s a versatile and adjustable transportation solution, accommodating riders 5’4″– 6’4″. The design has won several design awards for its subtle handling, aesthetics and engineering details. But the raves from owners throughout Europe and Asia are as much due to its peerless performance.
