Gearing up for this summers Olympic Games, Nike rolled out its newest inventions this week, including the lightest basketball jersey ever, made partly of recycled plastic bottles. The new Flyknit sneakers were also unveiled which weigh in impressively at around 5.6 ounces.

Additionally launched were new apps and technologies which will provide a more interactive user experience for customers. All the new shoes will include the Nike+ sensor which tracks speed, distance and other stats which the user can access through new apps. LeBron James will be wearing the new expensive, HyperDunk+, the first Nike+ enabled basketball shoes.

Mosaicist Isaiah Zagar started the Magic Gardens in 1994, using mostly found objects and donations from the community. Glass bottles line the walls, while the garden is adorned with bicycle wheels from local shop Via Bicycles, Zagar's hand-made tiles, and mismatched mirrors, to name a few.
