    Sosu Barrel-Aged Sriracha: Your Favorite Hot Sauce Fermented In Whiskey Barrels

    Alcohol tastes good when you put it in barrels to age for a while. So why not try the same with everyone’s favorite hot sauce? That’s exactly what Sosu Sauces did with the Sosu Barrel-Aged Sriracha. From the same guys that gave the world the similarly quirky Srirachup (a sriracha catsup), the new sauce combines the immensely popular Thai condiment with the craft of fermentation. Taste is described as spicy and fruity, with a lingering smokiness from the oak barrels. [...]

    Skull Wall Mirror Lets You Look Like A Supervillain Every Morning

    That GQ Mirror you have by the closet is awesome, allowing you to feel like a male model every time you fix your hair in the morning. It’s a great help when you need that little extra boost of self-esteem and confidence to begin your day. But what about those mornings when you want to walk around all wicked and sinister, like when you’re holding tough negotiations with suppliers or competing in an ironman triathlon?

    Sprout Is A Pencil That Turns Into A Plant

    Remember the Pooleaf, those ballpoint pens that look like an indoor plant when bundled together into a cup? Yeah, that was pretty cool. These Sprout Pencils can also turn into a plant, except instead of artificial plastic flora, it can grow into real herbs when buried in soil. A pencil with a seed inside, you can use it like any regular pencil for writing, sketching, and tapping on the desk any time you get anxious and fidgety. Rather than merely [...]

    Korg tinyPiano: A Toy Piano With Real Instrument Sound

    Toy pianos for young children have been around for seemingly forever. Why do you think so many young children grow up to become hipster musicians with no health insurance when they grow up, after all? We kid, we kid. The Korg tinyPiano is a modern update on the popular toy, injecting it with a little more musical muscle under the lid. At first glance, it looks like any of the toy pianos children have played with for the longest time. [...]

  • These Floyd Legs Can Turn Pretty Much Any Flat Surface Into A Table

    These Floyd Legs Can Turn Pretty Much Any Flat Surface Into A Table

    Over the years, we’ve seen various clamp designs that let you create impromptu tables out of any flat slab. So far though, I have yet to find one I can actually purchase. Well, that ends now with these Floyd Legs. The concept is simple: attach a clamp to a table leg, so it can be attached to one corner of a slab of wood, metal or some other material that can serve as a tabletop. That’s it. As long as [...]

    Tranquility Pod: Hatch Inside This Egg And Reinvigorate Yourself

    Remember when you were little and you’ll hide inside a closet and feel so comfy while encroached in that tight compartment. So comfy, in fact, that you’d sometimes fall asleep and sometimes spend hours on end doing nothing? Turns out things don’t change much when you grow up — except you need a bigger space to fit your grown-man frame. And that’s exactly what this Tranquility Pod offers. Designed by Alberto Frias, it’s basically a giant egg with a hole [...]

    Man Cave Décor: F-4 Landing Gear Wall Sculpture

    Apparently, there’s a way to salvage parts of decommissioned military jets, which I didn’t even know was an option in life. And it makes me sad that I didn’t devote my days to that pursuit. So color me jealous that some dude was actually lucky enough to salvage a whole load of landing gear doors from retired military F4 phantom jets, then refurbished them into these F-4 Landing Gear Wall Sculptures that inject a dose of aviation-inspired aesthetics into your [...]

  • Crock-Pot Wemo Smart Slow Cooker Can Be Controlled Remotely Using Your Smartphone

    Crock-Pot Wemo Smart Slow Cooker Can Be Controlled Remotely Using Your Smartphone

    Slow cookers (and pseudo-slow-cookers) are awesome, letting you cook food with the most intense flavors, all while requiring minimal kitchen skills. It’s like the appliance version of MSG. And while programmable slow cookers have already solved the problem of irregular work and social schedules messing up your dinner plans (e.g. you come home to pot roast falling apart like hashed meat after having to do 4 hours overtime at work), it still would be fun to be able to just [...]

  • Belkin WeMo Maker Kit Smartens Up All Your Gadgets And Machines

    Belkin WeMo Maker Kit Smartens Up All Your Gadgets And Machines

    A connected home is awesome and all but replacing everything in your digs with newly-minted smart counterparts (e.g. smart locks, smart doorbells, smart winches) just isn’t a fiscally responsible option for everyone. Heck, it’s probably a horrible idea for a lot of folks. The DIY solution? Hack an Arduino as a remote switch, then use it to control legacy appliances from a central source. Since not everybody is going to be stoked about having to do complex coding and electronics [...]

  • ToastyMUG Keeps Your Hands Toasty While Sipping Hot Coffee

    ToastyMUG Keeps Your Hands Toasty While Sipping Hot Coffee

    There’s a reason why they put handles on coffee mugs — most people simply don’t want to burn their hands trying to enjoy a steaming cup of hot morning coffee. Apparently, not everyone likes to do that. Some people, as it turns out, are more Daenerys Stormborn in their relationship with high temperatures, preferring to cup their hands around the mugs to keep them toasty. Really. The ToastyMUG was created for them. Designed by Sabrina Fossi, it’s a glazed ceramic [...]

    MyLifter Is A Semi-Smart Motorized Ceiling Storage Lift System

    There are plenty of options for motorized overhead storage platforms, even more if you’re willing to put in some DIY work yourself. If you’d rather get a set-it-and-forget-it kit to save yourself any extra work, we have a feeling you’ll enjoy MyLifter. For the most part, it’s an erstwhile standard motorized storage set that you can install on the ceiling for various overhead storage needs. Except they integrated a few smart features that should make it a bit more convenient [...]

    Bedjet Is Personal Cooling And Heating Climate Control System For Your Bed

    Foul weather, whether it’s too hot or too cold, is an all-night problem. However, it becomes especially annoying when you’re trying to sleep and can’t because your body just can’t seem to settle in. The Bedjet is a new climate control appliance that aims to help with that. Designed by Mark Aramli, a former spacesuit engineer for NASA, the device will latch on to the side of your bed then blow either cool or warm air between the sheets. Why [...]

    Loopits Stash Your Gear On Wall-Mounted Elastic Bands

    We never run out of a need for wall-mounted storage fixtures. And while a shelf (or, our personal fave, many foldable shelves) can definitely take care of many needs, we’d rather skip the elaborate mounting and installation if we can in favor of something simpler like Loopits. A simple customizable mounted storage, it uses a large elastic band to create a holster of sorts, ready to sandwich any object you put between its soft, stretchy material against any surface. You [...]

    Searzall Turns A Blowtorch Into A Controlled Cooking Machine

    Most of us have probably seen chefs on TV (or Youtube) use a blow torch to help cook certain dishes. And while it looks like an awesome idea, chances are, you’re going to just mess up trying to do the same thing. Think: charred food, burnt countertop, or worse, kitchen on fire. Yeah, bad idea. The Searzall can change that, turning an erstwhile regular blowtorch into a controlled cooking equipment that minimizes the hazards of using one. A blowtorch attachment, [...]

    Invisiplug Deluxe Adds USB Ports To Hardwood-Style Power Strips

    We loved the original Invisplug power strip, which came with designs that made it really blend in with hardwood floors. These days, though, a power strip just isn’t all that complete without a USB port in tow. The Invisiplug Deluxe brings that modern amenity to its functional yet decorative power strips, so you can finally get rid of that ugly power strip you keep around for its USB-charging powers. Bearing the same three options in wood grain finishes (light natural, [...]

    These Blueprint Placemats Show You How To Engineer Simple Kitchen Fare

    After seeing these Engineering Blueprint Placemats, I now want an entire cookbook rendered as engineering blueprints. These are so awesome. If I had a doomsday device, in fact I will demand that all instructions, recipes and user guides worldwide be converted to exactly this format. Failure to comply will mean the end of civilization as all of mankind knows it. Created by Awkward Engineer, it’s a set of placemats printed with an engineering-style blueprint that shows instructions for making dead-simple [...]
