Sidewalk Fired EggStepped outside lately? Ma Nature’s set the sun to broil. To avoid having our faces melt off, we’ve been squatting in the office afterhours to soak up the free A/C. But, you can only have so many chair races and cheese-puff eating competitions before growing so bored that you resort to working just to escape the tedium. Thus, this hefty schmear of new accessories from plucky brands like PlasmaGlow, Smittybilt, Hi-Lift, INNO and ATS Designs.

PlasmaGlow Lightning Eyes LED Headlight Strips—Legend has it that these automotive lights came into existence when a particularly comely strip of flexible, sticky-backed wiring caught the eye of mighty Zeus, who took the form of dazzling LED lights and had knowledge of the wiring, which in turn begot these PlasmaGlow lights.
