Peak Water - Coffee Filtration System
One of the main reasons that coffee house drips taste so much better than the ones you make at home is the water. While not often talked about, using quality water for your coffee can make a bigger difference than fancy grinders, pour over systems or exotic beans. It makes sense if you think about it: the average cup of coffee is 99% water and 1% plant matter. The Peak Water filtration jug was just launched on Kickstarter and aims to bring coffee house caliber water to your home. The Peak jug uses a maze-like filtration path that forces water through filters while removing unwanted trace chemicals and achieving a balanced pH level. In addition to that, the design is sleek and minimal and would look great on any countertop.

Outlier Ultrahigh Bigroll Backpack
Its Tuesday which means another drop from tech wear innovator Outlier. Today they released an update to their Dyneema backpack, dubbing it the Ultrahigh Bigroll.

The extra long rolltop and dual compression straps allow it to scale load sizes with ease. At almost $500 this bag ain't cheap, but if you're looking for a backpack that will turn heads and last forever, the Ultrahigh is a strong contender.

Parkipelago - Artificial Island Chain
This is a pretty neat find for 'real estate' fans. Fokstrot - a Danish design studio - has started a project called the Copenhagen Islands. The islands are actually man-made platforms that will be daisy-chained throughout Copenhagen's southern harbor to resemble a sort of 'parkipelago.' Each platform will serve a unique purpose: a cafe, a sauna, a diving board, a mussel farm - and as a chain they can support full-featured event space for concerts gatherings and festivals. Using clean design and simple aesthetic, these islands are a smart way to take advantage of the beautiful and abundant Copenhagen waters and attract tourists and locals alike.
