April 2016 Rewind

Every month we round up the best new technology, killer design, and upcoming events in SPROUT’S Monthly Rewind.


  • Shinola: This Detroit based watch company combines inspired design with a well spun backstory for a marketing slam-dunk.
  • Access Pack: The North Face prioritizes organization and ease of access in the new Access Pack.
  • Hoverbike: The internet’s favorite mad scientist is back at it, this time building a functioning “Hover bike”.


  • Alien Stompers: Reebok gets all the detail right in the limited edition Alien Stomper Sneaker. (You won’t even want to throw away the box.)
  • 3D-Printed Shoes: 3D Printing is everywhere, so why not shoes? New Balance announces the release of the first high performance running shoe with a 3D-printed midsole.
  • Audi Longboard: In Audi’s new concept, the vehicle itself doesn’t really matter. What’s interesting is what’s inside of it: a beautiful electric longboard that automatically charges when it’s stowed inside the rear bumper.
  • Sketchy Bikes: Drawing a bicycle from memory is harder than it looks. Take a look at some of these crazy sketches made real by artist Gianluca Gimini.
  • Dyson Hairdryer: Four years and 1,010 miles of hair after its conception, it’s ready: the British electronics company unveiled the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer.
