Chipotle Sofritas

The fast food chain first introduced Sofritas - the chain's vegan, braised tofu option - early in 2013, but it really hasn't taken off, until now.

If you're on the west coast, order online now to skip the lines, since many locations are open until 10pm.

At first glance, this appears to be any pile of old trash, but Gregory Kloehn, an artist in Oakland, California, has made it his mission to use these materials to build small mobile homes for the homeless. Called the "Homeless Homes Project", it all starts with dumpster diving in the local industrial areas, selecting the parts for his practical architectural creations and putting together something livable from the salvaged materials.

NYC Subway Car Reef

New York City's subway system is currently the world's sixth busiest, with 1.6-billion annual passenger rides. This means that old subways cars are constantly being replaced with new ones.

Beautiful Greece Street

Have you ever encountered a street, road, tunnel, or pathway so beautiful that it defied words? If not, these images are about to boggle your mind, as all of them exist right here on Earth, including this majestic shot of Molyvos, Lesvos, Greece (above).

You've seen the 12-inch MacBook Air spy shots, now check out a few renders by the very talented Martin Hajek of the laptop in all three colors: champagne gold, slate gray, and silver. While new information has been sparse, it's most likely that this ultra slim laptop will have only a single USB-C port, along with a headphone jack. There are rumors that Apple may offer a 16GB RAM option and / or a Retina Display, but we'll probably have to wait until WWDC in June to see if any of those are true. Let's just hope there isn't a waiting list for the gold model, like there was for Apple's iPhone 6 / 6 Plus at launch. Click here to view the first image in this week's WINS gallery.

Original Power Glove

The Power Glove was originally released in 1989, and although it was an officially licensed product, Nintendo was not involved in the design or release of this accessory. Rather, it was designed by Grant Goddard and Samuel Cooper Davis for Abrams/Gentile Entertainment (AGE), made by Mattel in the United States. For those who grew up in the 80s and could afford an NES, this was a must-have accessory for the console, especially after seeing it in The Wizard. The glove has traditional NES controller buttons on the forearm as well as a program button and buttons labeled 0-9.The user presses the program button and a numbered button to input commands, such as changing the firing rate of the A and B buttons. Along with the controller, the player can perform various hand motions to control a character on-screen. Continue reading for more everyday things that only 80s geeks might still cherish today.
