With so many cool things coming out each week, it can be hard to wade through all the rock-awesomeness. With ‘Cool Tools’, we’ve done the hard work for you.

This week we saw an insane custom BMW K100 featuring artwork created using 3d models, a Dieter Rams-inspired redesign of the men’s classic shaving razor, an update to the ever-useful Scanner Pro app, how to make a BBQ grill out of a stump and more…

Ready? Let’s go!

This week we look at:


RZR | Shaver


“We created a high quality razor that lasts a lifetime. We believe that the blades should have a small ecofootprint at an honest price.”

Impuls BMW K100


“Artist Fabian Gatermann created his entire motorcycle in 3D and then created a set of polygons through manual iteration and drew them back onto the motorcycle by hand.”


Startup Jobs


“Startup Jobs by AngelList is the easiest way to find a job at a great startup, or find high-quality candidates. Just swipe right!”

Scanner Pro 7 (Updated)


“Scanner Pro can scan any type of document, ranging from a receipt to multi-page documents. Save, email or upload your scanned documents as searchable PDF or JPEG files. “


Welding Cart

“This week I made a cart for my welder. I had some leftover 3/4″ plywood and came up with a simple design that can store all of my welding equipment in one location. The wheels on the bottom make the cart extremely mobile and is a great addition for anyone who owns a welder!”

Swedish Torch BBQ

“This DIY Project shows you how to create a BBQ in a trunk. This is one version of the Swedish Torch method. We used it to cook some stuff: sausages for lunch, melted marshmallows for snack, a French Raclette for dinner with friends, in the forest. Enjoy!”



“‘Wrapped’ delves into the clash between civilization and nature.”

Memories of Paintings

“‘Memories of Paintings’ is an experimental dreamlike video rocking us smoothly through circular moves.
The visual compositions have been created out of paint, oil, milk and soap liquid.”

And there you have it!
