Astronauts are golden retrievers of human beings. The rest of us have to live vicariously through their resplendent existences while we sit back and watch hours of cats reacting to fidget spinners. Now, Reebok has decided to make our astronaut envy even worse -- it's finally revealed the space boots for Boeing Starliner astronauts and goddamn are they fly.

There's an obsession with "immersion" in virtual reality. Everyone wants to find the next way to make VR experiences feel more real. So far, the best ways to do it have been room tracking sensors that let you walk around a designated area or wireless hand controllers that let you grab things in the virtual world.

Hiking from Mexico through the United States and all the way up to Canada on the Pacific Coast Trail is just a little bit beyond a stroll in the park. It took Andrew Holzscuh, the hiker in the video, 166 days to take on over 4,184km. He got it done with only four pairs of shoes.

You can get safes camouflaged as everything from water bottles to cans of shaving cream, but our new favourite way to protect your valuables might be this Nike shoebox strongbox that few intruders will even think to look inside -- unless they're really after a rare pair of Jordans.

Way back in 2008 BMW revealed an especially outlandish concept car called the GINA Light Visionary Model that traded metal body panels for a flexible lycra-like fabric wrapped around the vehicle. It wasn't exactly pretty, which makes it harder to understand why Puma would use it as inspiration for a new shoe.
