Good morning. The world’s first commercial CO2-capturing plant is now up and running in Switzerland. Using an array of fans and vents, the plant literally sucks in polluted air, scrubs out the CO2 (up to 900 tons of it per day) and packages it for commercial sale, for things like fertilizer and carbon-neutral fuels.

What’s New, Now
Jack Mason Field Chronograph 42mm
Jack Mason’s first-ever bronze watch combines the best of two worlds: that of rugged summer adventure gear, with a durable rubber strap and burly construction that’s water-resistant up to 10 ATM; and the timeless style of a solid bronze case that will look better with age. It’s also a quartz-powered, center second chronograph, which means it’s always accurate, no matter your summertime pursuits.
Magnum Photos Square Print Sale
Right now, Magnum Photos, the international photography cooperative that counts among its members some of the world’s most revered photographers, is hosting its annual Square Print Sale. The collection includes 78 museum-quality 6 x 6-inch photographs, many of which you’ve likely seen before; each photo is either signed or stamped by the photographer or, in the case of deceased photographers, by their estate, making it a rare, certifiable collector’s item. The sale ends June 9, 6:00 p.m. EST.
At Auction: 1966 Ford Bronco 4×4
A flawless restoration of a 1966 model, often thought to be one of the Bronco‘s best years. Along with polished cosmetic details, there’s plenty of new organs under the hood, like an aluminum intake, Edelbrock 650 cfm carburetor and an MSD ignition.
Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD
With fewer and fewer ports built into our technology today, a dock is a great way to expand the number of connections to your computer. Belkin’s Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD can connect eight separate devices through one Thunderbolt cable. The dock supports dual 4K video output and can daisy chain up to five Thunderbolt devices. Clocking in at 20Gbps, the Express Dock HD is eight times faster than USB 3.0; Belkin says it can transfer a 4K movie in less than 30 seconds.

Vadolibero Bike Safe S
Have you seen Vadolibero’s Bike Shelf? It has to be one of the most outrageously indulgent bike accessories ever created. The Bike Safe S, a locking stainless steel wall mount, is a less outrageous yet still indulgent bike storage solution. Upon request, you can personalize the mount with an Italian leather saddle and keychain, available in five colors: dark brown, black, white, yellow and red.
Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Tech Fleece”
This Friday, Nike is releasing a new derivative of the cult-favorite Air Foamposite Pro, updated with some lifestyle-y, dark gray heathered fleece. There’s also a carbon fiber plate on the midsole, glossy Swooshes and a translucent blue outsole.
W & P Designs Extra Large Ice Cube Tray
From the Gear Patrol Store: W & P Designs has improved the overlooked mundanity that is the ice tray. This silicon mold is BPA-free and backed up by a stainless steel frame that will not warp. A protective lid keeps errant freezer flavors away from the four large cubes of ice, but if it does need a cleaning, it will be fine in the dishwasher. Available in gray, blue and white.
