Revolutionary rowing shell builder Chris Maas has done some pretty special things with sailboats as well – his Moth and International Canoe were some of the most beautiful pieces of worksmanship ever to grace the high-performance dinghy world.
But as a brand new dad, our own Senior Editor was more impressed with Maas’s present for his new granddaughter. From Facebook:
At 1 1/2 years old it seems like it’s time for the granddaughter to raise her game. So I built her a little sailboat model to give her the idea. It was supposed to be simple – just a carved block of cedar, a dowel for a mast and a piece of brass flat bar for a keel. It got a little out of hand…

The coolest toy we’ve seen on the inter webs in ages, this living global wind map is moveable and spinnable and zoomable anywhere on the globe. That would be cool enough for hours of contemplation, but author Cameron Beccario and team are constantly adding new features too; you can check winds all the way up through the stratosphere and play with multiple projections of the world. For extra holiday fun, plug it into the big screen between games (or Cast it if you’ve got one of these cool new toys) and wow your family with the trippie snow globe. Keep tabs of new developments on their Facebook page or in the SA thread. Once again the Pixies are our title inspiration.
