One of the coolest things on a long distance flight is when you are able to bust out an iPad and watch a movie to kill the time. But have you ever thought about how cool it would be to have a virtual glass viewing system? The Headplay is akin to watching your favorite flick on a virtual 52-inch screen, and is said to have a very clear, yet not dizzying viewing experience. With a battery life of around 6 hours, it’s optimal for a long flight and also would be handy for viewing films that you would not want the young child next to you catching a glimpse of. There are ports for VGA and USB, and most reviewers say that it is more comfortable than you would think.

Launched in 2005, this web hub full of the best in made from scratch goods is derived from the Latin word “and if”, or also Italian for “oh yes”. Almost two years later, the site passed $1.7 million in sales and during the month of November, buyers purchased over 300,000 items on the site and spent around $4.3 million in the process.

From one of the world’s most popular bands, One Direction’s Our Moment is a very fruity fragrance that has been embraced by thousands and in a very high demand.
