What do you suppose the most requested photo from the US National Archives might be? Troops raising the American flag on Iwo Jima? That sailor kissing a random woman at the end of WWII? Nope. It’s Richard Nixon shaking Elvis Presley’s hand.
Over the course of six weeks during the height of the Cold War, almost three million Soviets visited an exhibition that celebrated America. American kitchens, American art, American cars, and most especially American capitalism. The American National Exhibition in Moscow was a full-court press to convince the Soviet people of American superiority. It was supposed to be a showcase for how Americans of the 1950s were living and prospering. But like nearly everything American during this time, it was really about selling the future.
Nixon’s Genie wristwatch has a multiple personality disorder – it thinks it’s a Magic 8 ball! Not only can it tell the time, date, and act as a timer or stopwatch, it can also answer questions with 15 random messages. It’s $US120, and available in a range of colours.

Looking not entirely dissimilar from the Danish Aiaiai TMA-1 headphones I liked so much last year, these Nixon RPM headphones have 40mm drivers tuned for DJ use, along with articulated joints for twisting every-which-way.
Nixon’s Master Blaster Headphones are their top-of-the-line, studio quality headphones. In addition to beautiful, lightweight design, these leather-wrapped cans have 50mm dynamic drivers and an analogue volume dial built around the speaker cabinet.
