Running is a much-dreaded activity to some. The thought of moving, hurting your feet, and getting tired is already exhausting. What more when you actually run? Fortunately, Nike embarked on a quest to make running easier.

Introducing Nike Joyride. It’s a new cushioning technology meant to keep you moving forward. It aims to redefine running as Nike claims this innovative solution can adapt to every runner’s foot, giving a more personalized experience.

This new cushioning technology uses TPE beads strategically placed in zonally-tuned pods, with varying scale depending on how the foot hits the ground when moving around. Nike Joyride aims to lessen the impact your feet receives when you’re running.

Made for every kind of runner

Nike Joyride Run Flyknit will be the first to feature this technology. Whether you’re an all-out runner or a beginner getting into running, this sneaker could be the right match for you. It can handle casual strolls and intense running, whichever is your preferred lifestyle.

Fun with Joyride doesn’t stop there. The Nike Joyride NSW, Nike Joyride NWS Optik, and the Nike Joyride Kids Nova are also coming in the future.

Nike Joyride NSW Setter, which debuted during Matthew Williams’ SS20 ALYX show during Paris Fashion Week, will also be sporting the technology.

The Nike Joyride Run Flyknit will retail for PHP 8,545 (US $168). It will be available after its global release on August 15.

My latest obsession with Polaroid’s latest release — Polaroid NOW — has led me to discover refurbished vintage Polaroid 600 cameras. For 90’s kids, these instant cameras relive our colorful, childhood memories dabbling in popping colors celebrated throughout the 80s until the early 2000s.

Look at this refurbished Barbie Throwback, based on the original Barbie Polaroid released in 1999.

How about this bold and loud Neon Yellow & Pink Cool Cam…

… Or this Pink Cool Cam that screams black and pink (like a revolution).

Remember this Blue ’96 Edition perfectly complementing your windbreaker and fanny packs?

Back then, we have Japanese brand Tomy collaborating with Polaroid as a merch for popular manga and anime Kodomo no Omocha, also known as Kodocha.

Remember when we’re all obsessed with MTV?

Oh, look at this fabulous, super rare, Pink Checkers Polaroid 600!

Hello Kitty fans, can you hear me??????

Ah, this Spice Cam makes us remember the times we dance and sing to Spice Girls — like it’s our anthem before Britney Spears finally took over.

In true Maroon 5 fashion, memories really do bring back you. Seeing these instant cameras made me remember who I was before the world told me who I should be. It felt like an ode to my inner child, calling for retrospection. Remember how fun and young we used to be?

Professionally refurbished by Retrospekt

These vintage Polaroid 600 cameras are refurbished by Retrospekt, a company based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Founded by Adam and KoriFuerst in 2008, Retrospekt started as a project to recreate their beloved instant film products.

Retrospekt uses Polaroid’s original components, and properly clean, test, rebuild and test the products again before sending out. Just like any refurbished vintage product, these instant cameras may show some light wear. Still, Retrospekt guarantees functionality.

And when it arrives at your doorsteps, all you need is just a pack of Polaroid 600 film, and you’ll be back to shooting instant films again.

Huawei just launched its own credit card

Partnered with UnionPay

Published

Nationalistic ties aside, Huawei has created some of the more interesting smartphones of recent history. Throughout the years, the company’s flagship series have brought remarkable performance for a fraction of the usual cost. That said, they also promised to expand their portfolio beyond their usual fare, starting with a flurry of smart home devices.

Today, Huawei has announced a new (and strangest) addition to its menu. In the Chinese launch for the Huawei P40 series, Huawei head honcho Richard Yu announced an official Huawei credit card.

Of course, a tech-endorsed financial service isn’t unheard of. Last year, Apple rolled out the Apple Card, a plastic and virtual service with Goldman Sachs. It’s no surprise that Huawei wants to get in on the action.

Like the Apple Card, Huawei’s credit card is available both physically and digitally. The company will work together with UnionPay, a sizable Chinese financial service. Likewise, the card can link with Huawei’s smartphones for mobile payment options, especially through Huawei Pay or the company’s digital wallet. For security, Huawei offers the same security it provides for its smartphones.

The program is already offering some tempting benefits for signing up. There is no annual fee for the first year. They can also reduce the second-year fee for those who spend enough money on Huawei Pay purchases. Finally, card owners will get travel benefits, like lounge access in certain train stations and airports.

Currently, Yu has not when the card will launch or whether it will launch exclusively in China.
