1. KEEP CLEANING WITH SWAPPABLE BATTERIES
The Bosch Unlimited skirts around the problem of runtime on cordless vacuums by using an exchangeable battery pack and quick charger. The quick charger recharges the battery in under 60 minutes, and the battery is the same used in Bosch’s 18- volt Home & Garden cordless system. The Unlimited can be detached into a handheld spot cleaner, without the need to snap any accessories into place.
2. THE ULTIMATE ART BAG
This one’s for the person for who can’t stop sketching.

If the UR-105 looks like an armored plate, that’s by design. URWERK says the bezel is supposed to evoke the breastplate for a knight’s armor. The UR-105 features URWERK’s iconic satellite indication; a carousel carries four satellites, each carrying three-hour numerals. They parade and reveal themselves past the minute rail to show the time.
