Testing Out Ralph Lauren's Smartshirt, the POLOTECH

Think wearable technology is relegated to your wrist? Think again. Ralph Lauren—which has dressed the American Olympic team and oversees an entire athletic-minded line with Polo Sport—has always had its eye on fitness. The brand's biggest play to date may just be in the release of the first-ever tech-enabled "smartshirt," known as the POLOTECH Shirt. An electrical box plugs in directly to the garment and gathers information from silver threads that are woven through into its fabric. All of this delivers your workout vitals to a proprietary app in real time. It's like the future, but now. The tee monitors see more

Usain Bolt Got Tackled by a Rogue Segway After Winning at the World Championships

Segways are the worst. They look dumb, and they make you look dumb, too. But at least you can choose to ignore them, right? WRONG. You cannot run from Segways. Even Usain Bolt—the fastest man in the world—can not run from Segways. Halfway through his victory lap in Beijing after after running 200 meters in just 19.55 seconds, Bolt was slide-tackled by a Segway gone rogue. From the footage, it appears that it's the photographer's fault for riding the Segway too close to the control track before bouncing off it and careening into the world's greatest sprinter and his very see more

Deflatewhat? Tom Brady Still Sells More NFL Merch Than Any Other Player

Everybody wants to be a quarterback. Even if that quarterback is under investigation for the intentional deflation of a few balls to win a playoff game against an archrival. For the first time in his career, Tom Brady is atop the NFL's quarterly updated list of the 50 players who sell the most gear. Brady's jerseys and other branded merchandise are outselling the leagues' other stars, and it's likely that the Patriots quarterback has Deflategate to thank for it. But even in a scandal-free year, Brady would probably still be near the top of the heap. Seven of the top see more

Rafael Nadal's Abtastic Tommy Hilfiger Underwear Campaign Is Here

Rafael Nadal's new underwear campaign for Tommy Hilfiger has finally dropped in all its tight, white (and navy) glory. It proves there's more than one reason the tennis champ is called the King of Clay, because these abs look solid enough to have been fired in an industrial pottery kiln: The new ads are the beginning of Nadal's two-year agreement with Tommy Hilfiger, which will also see the 29-year-old play ambassador for the brand's tailored clothing and TH Bold fragrance. "Because we're so global now, Rafael Nadal resonates globally in most countries in the world. He also looks amazing in see more

A Parisian Basketball Court That Doubles as Street Art

In Paris' ninth arrondissement, buzzy French fashion label Pigalle has teamed up with Ill-Studio to create a polychromatic basketball court. Wedged between a row of Right Bank buildings on rue Duperré, the space was initially redeveloped in 2009 by Nike with Pigalle founder Stephane Ashpool. The court's intersecting fragments of brightly colored geometric figures were inspired by Russian artist and originator of the Suprematist movement Kazimir Malevich's painting Sportsmen. The court is a tripartite construction, with the floor composed of panels of yellow, blue, red, and white rubber, the synthetic sort typically found on playgrounds. While the lower sections of see more

Floyd Mayweather's Lame Jab at Ronda Rousey: I'm Richer Than You

Professional boxer, rich person, and woman beater Floyd Mayweather has officially jabbed back at also-undefeated MMA fave Ronda Rousey. Rousey originally fired shots at Mayweather last month after the latter claimed not to know who "he" was, despite being up against—and losing to—Rousey for the MMA's Fighter of the Year award. "I can't help but really say that I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once," she said in her acceptance speech at the ESPYs in July, making a not-so-subtle reference to Mayweather's disturbing history of domestic violence. During an interview on ESPN's SportsCenter last see more

MLB Rookie Hits First Home Run, Then Has Best Reaction Ever

Your browser does not support iframes. Last night, Tampa Bay rookie Richie Shaffer did an amazing thing! He hit his first home run as a Major League player—something that's obviously very cool and exciting. However, when he came back to the dugout after circling the bases in what we can only imagine was a moment of glory, he found his teammates huddled, with their backs to him. Don't worry, this unified act of indifference is a baseball tradition. Shaffer took the faux snub in stride and celebrated, albeit all by himself. The result? Pure magic. Check it out, above. see more

Watch Freestyle Motocross Rider Robbie Maddison Try to Win the Entire X-Games All at Once

Robbie "Maddo" Maddison is known for crazy motocross stunts, mostly jumping over things like London's Tower Bridge, the Corinth Canal, and the San Diego Harbor. His latest stunt doesn't involve jumping anything but nonetheless seems far more impossible, because he's surfing. While still riding his bike. The bike has modifications, obviously, but surprisingly few. There are some small fins running along the sides of the wheels, for stability, and the tread on the back wheel extends out like small paddles. Otherwise, it's just Maddo hurtling full-throttle into Tahitian swells in full FMX gear. Fittingly, the video is called "Robbie see more

Yup, Cristiano Ronaldo Just Bought His Agent a Private Island

Robert Louis Stevenson once said that a friend is a gift you give yourself. But if Cristiano Ronaldo is the gift you've given to yourself, your beloved gift might, in turn, gift you an island. At least, that's the case for Ronaldo's agent and confidant Jorge Mendes when the Portuguese soccer star (reportedly!) bestowed upon him a Greek isle of his very own as a wedding present reports Bleacher Report (via EuroSport). Yeah, you read that right—a g-d island. As Greece faces a grim financial future, the country has put some of its beautiful natural resources up for sale, see more
