REVIEW: the “Unpocket” from @the_affair & @zoltancsaki

8:15 pm in conversations,fashion?,internet,objects dustin hostetler


I’ve had a chance to spend a couple of weeks with the Unpocket, something I backed on Kickstarter what seems like a million years ago, and I have to say it was worth the wait.

Billed as “Simple privacy management for the under-surveillance society” it may seem a little silly to some. The Unpocket disconnects your device from RFID, GPS, WiFi and Cell. No, I’m not concerned about the NSA or CIA tracking my every move (yes I am), but I am in love with the notion of going radio silent.

I recently got an Apple Watch, and I’ll admit it’s a little rude and distracting to be constantly glancing at my wrist while in a meeting. Now, I place my phone in the Unpocket during a conversation and consciously tune out my alerts. It instantly mutes my watch and leaves me focused on the people I’m with.

Pictured above with an iPhone 6 and a Macbook, it’s the perfect size for most devices, and can double as a passport holder or even a simple wallet. The fact that it’s water resistant also makes it great for travel.

No, I’m not paranoid (yes I am) but the Unpocket is a lovely addition to my computer bag that sends a thoughtful message to the people I WANT to be surveilling me.

Mark Mothersbaugh Eyewear

2:31 am in art,fashion?,objects dustin hostetler


Faesthetic #13 contributor, and all around one of my biggest heroes, Mark Mothersbaugh has launched a new line of spectacles and I’m in love.

Not only are they made out of beautiful resilient metal, but the models / designs are wonderfully quirky in the most perfect way. You can own them without fear that they are made for Motherbaugh’s face. They look as good on you as they do on him.

I had a press pair sent to me, and was frankly depressed that the model size was too small for my head. Thankfully a coworker and good friend was happy to snap them up and jesus… just look at them. So good. So shiney. So nice.

So why is Mark an idol of mine? To say he is a renaissance man would be an understatement to his impact on the world. From DEVO, to his visual art, to his huge impact on pop culture in the form of soundtracks… and now his serious take on fashion… The man is the man. When I grow up I want to be Mark.
