Hover Boards.

I wanted to do a piece on Hover Boards. For one, skateboarding is a huge passion of mine, and two, the concept is freaking sweet.

We have seen a lot of concepts come out and they all look really neat for what they are trying to bring to the table. Lexus came the closest but real world application just isn’t there. I want something I can cruise on. that I can take downtown and shred the pavement. So although cool, maybe we just aren’t there yet for practical use, until I stumbled across a company simply called HoverBoard.

Now we have all seen those drift boards. people gliding around but I’ve always wanted something more skateboardesque. Now the Hoverboard Technologies board doesn’t actually hover but is more like a drift skateboard with a singular wheel and the concept is not only interesting but it looks amazing as well. The specs on this board are pretty impressive:

Charge time: 16 Minutes

Charge Last: 12 Miles

Speed: 16MPH !!

Weight: 25lbs

The Hoverboard is an impressive piece of technology and comes with all the fixings. Included with  this are customized wheels and lights, speakers to create a gnarly sound track for your day, and eventually possible wheel changes (off road perhaps?!). Here is the video that the Hoverboard Technologies team produced for their Kickstarter campaign:

Now you aren’t going to be taking this board down halfpipes anytime soon, but cruising around town, absolutely! With all this amazing tech and design does come with a hefty price tag. The Kickstarter Campaign is now over but the pre-order price was $3,775. I’m thinking the consumer version will be around $4,000. Even so if you can take out a small loan and pay bit by bit, it may just be worth it. I look forward to seeing the demo days that these guys have in store.

(Although the campaign didn’t reach funding Hoverboard Technologies still has every intention on releasing this product in Summer 16)

    October 21, 2015 is a day that many people in the sneaker world and movie world have been waiting for, for 30 years. It is officially the day that Marty McFly goes to the future to intervene so that his son doesn’t go to Jail.

    Why is this so important you might ask? It’s important because it is the culmination of expectation for future (i.e. present) but after today it will be the first time in History that this movie takes place in the past. Whaaa, mind blown.

    Three futuristic inventions stick out to most people when they hear Back to the Future II; Hover Boards, Flying Cars, and Power Laces.

    I walked outside and looked in the sky, No flying Cars. I went in my house and took the wheels of my skateboard…. nothing happened but when I jumped on my computer at 4:00 PM EST something amazing happened; Michael J Fox unveiled a power lacing shoe

    Tinker and Michael J Fox

    This was a pinnacle moment for fans all over the world. But lets look deeper at a few things that Back to the Future did get right, because beyond the big three there were some things that were pretty spot on.

    Smart Herb Garden: In home Gardening

    Now are we sitting at our kitchen Table yelling “Fruit Please” as an indoor garden drops down from above, no. However Smart Herb Garden has done an amazing job at creating an indoor garden that can pretty much sustains itself in any home. Strawberries, tomatoes and other herbs can all be grown on any countertop.

    Ziosk: Waiter-less Restaurants:

    If only Ronald Reagan was taking orders at Chili’s that would be amazing, but that’s not happening. So for now we will settle for Ziosk: The Table Top Waiter. Ziosk allows you to put your order in, order refills, play games, and even pay. We are heading towards a non-waiter world, and of course it all started with the Café 80’s.

    Back to the Future will always be a cultural staple that showcased what some of the most creative minds could come up with for a fun positive future. 30 years ago the movie hit the big screen and I for one can’t wait to see what will come about in the next 30 years.

    So I’m late to the game I know this. However, I need to talk about a product that has revived not only my Lunarglides, but also my Jordan XI’s. Jason Markk is the a shoe cleaner that I can say without a doubt I would use on any shoe with no worry whatsoever. Below are my favorite Koston’s. Mid Red’s. I made the mistake of wearing them in Portland and stepped on some grass that was hiding a muddy pit. This happened months ago. Below is the before and after using the Markk! Beautiful!

    That’s all just had to let everyone know that if you aren’t sure what cleaner is real trust me this one is. Stop using shout wipes, stop wiping with a basic rag, and Markk it up. (lame I know but just pumped half my shoes look new again!)

    Sunglasses are one of those items that people spend way to much money on for no reason. Yes, I admit that I have fallen victim through out the years, Oakley, Spy, Tom Ford, and RayBan. I’ve had em all. And what for to just lose them at a pool party to call the next day pretending that the bartender is going to tell me that he has found them but in realty he tell’s me no one has turned them in as hes wearing them.

    But I digress. Heat Wave offers really dope affordable option with some sick designs. Designs that include straight clear to elephant print, Hello Jordan 3. I’m not saying that they are sporting a brand new style that you have never seen. But they offer a classic style that will look good at any pool party or beach. This is not a sponsored post, I’m just tired of losing my glasses and decided to look into some brands that offer affordable eye wear. Check out Heat Wave now and pick something up.

    Sometimes whats happening in the streets isn’t street wear, shoes, or music, it’s tech and video games. And today after many years Fall Out 4 has been announced. This is the culmination of 5 for a new Fallout and 7 years of an original title. Peep the trailer Below:

    This game looks beautiful. The trailer gives a feeling of past and present jumping. We get to see how the world was before the Waste Land, and that is exciting! We are going to get more info when E3 Comes around in about a week or so, and hopefully we will see some actually game play footage. More then but for now just put that trailer on repeat and enjoy!

    Ronnie Fieg Gel Saga are a summer staple. And this year is no different with the partnership with Kith x Diamond Supply Co.

    The shoe sports the Tiffany Blue that Diamond Supply Colabs are known for and hype-beast every where rejoice for another shoe that they will not obtain.

    But it all seriousness the shoe looks gorgeous and if like any of the other Fieg’s we know the quality will be out of this world. The only question you need to be asking your self is how long will you keep them on ice before you hit the street in them.

    lore1
    lôr/
    noun
    1. a body of traditions and knowledge on a subject or held by a particular group, typically passed from person to person by word of mouth

     

    Being on the west coast we are experience the New Year later than most. Being able to relish in the last moments of 2014 is something I actually enjoy doing. It give me an opportunity to actually think about what I’m going to miss about 2014, what I’m glad is done with in 2014, and the exciting future ahead of me in 2015. Too often you hear people say “Don’t look back” but looking back allows us to see what we accomplished and what we didn’t and the hopes of creating better in the future.

    With that being said, Next year I look forward to all the amazing brands that are going to be created by the people out of their bedrooms and garages. I look forward to all the musicians who are going to take the chance and post that song that they have been hesitant to produce. All the artist, who are going to express themselves on the canvas and on  the streets. StreetLore is about all these things. We are in the streets who speak the truths, and in that purist form share that knowledge with each other. So when I think about 2014 I think about that. I think about the lore of the last year. The old and the new stories, the traditions , and the knowledge we have gained. All I can say is, 2015 is going to be a great year.

     

    What to look for in the begining of 2015:

      The back pack. The essential item missing in most peoples wardrobes but is a staple for anyone on the move. So many companies are out there making packs but at the end of the day, the quality and style are tops at Herschel Supply Co. If you are looking for a backpack, duffle, or even a fanny pack the simplicity of the designs and the contrasts of the lining make these a must have for anybody.

      Herschel hit the scene back in 2009 and has quickly become a name that is synonymous with simplicity designs with artistic integrity. Based out of Vancouver, Canada; Herschel Supply Co. has set up dope online shop with an unreal amount of styles and designs. If your planning a trip and might be hitting the streets the best way to make sure everything you have fits on you back is to pick up a Herschel.

       

      (Herschel didn’t endorse this post, The backpacks are just that unreal!)

      If you haven’t heard; Q-Tip sent Iggy Azaela to school. Not in a way that most would be call a beef but in a way that most need to approach Hip Hop. This came from an attack/beef after Azealia Banks criticized Iggy on Hot 97 days ago. Iggy Struck back but soon after Q-Tip thought he would school the Australian Rapper on the fundamental ideology of the rap game. The highlight of the tweets, which can still be found on Q-Tips’ Twitter, was summed up by this following tweet:

       

      Rappers like Q-Tip understand the history of where the rap game has been come from. So often we see these club bangers, one-hit, repetitive beats, and those are fine, but lets not forget where we came from and that true art and poetry are the root of this expression.
