    Pengallan  s Genius Gloves look cool
    Style | Accessories
    From Stephanie Rosenbloom's New York Times review.
    "••••••••••••••••••••••
    Pengallan's Genius Gloves were introduced last year and are hand made in Italy of kid leather and lined with cashmere.
    The thumb and index fingers on both hands flip back so that you can use a touch screen device.
    Sure, there are iPhone and smart-touch gloves that allow you to operate your phone or tablet without taking them off.
    But as Jason Tsou, the founder of Pengallan, likes to point out, his leather gloves can be used with the new iPhone 5's Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

    The time-lapse was created by photographer Sungjin Ahn over one year.
    "The overall goal of this time lapse is to provide the beauty of Joshua trees that only live in the U.S. I thought it would be amazing If I can collect all the footages of Joshua trees with different weather condition like snowing , different type of clouds, sun, moon ,milky way,and meteor shower.
    Joshua trees only live in western Arizona, southeastern California, southern Nevada, and southwestern Utah, which means that we can’t see this trees in different countries but only in America."
