• Mutant Hammock Lets You Chill In A Giant Spider Web

    Mutant Hammock Lets You Chill In A Giant Spider Web

    When I hear of a Mutant Hammock, I imagine a hammock that devours everyone who lies down in it then spits their bones out like food caught between its teeth.  You know, just like in cartoons.  Unfortunately, that’s not what this hammock does.  Fortunately, it’s still pretty awesome. A project from Knowhow Shop and the Santa Monica Museum of Art, it’s a hammock that looks more like one of Spiderman’s intricate webs spun across multiple tree trunks.  Since Spidey’s webs [...]

While it isn’t the first modular power tool we’ve seen, it’s certainly the most space-saving.  Instead of merely sharing batteries like other modular tools, it allows you to share the same base unit, merely swapping different [...]

    IceHuggy: Coozies For Ice Pops

    Beer coozies are great for keeping your hands dry while keeping your beer chilled.  So why not provide the same kind of convenience for your kids this summer. Not for beer silly, but for their icy treats. That’s exactly the idea with the IceHuggy, a coozie for wrapping around freeze pops, yogurt sticks and other similar icy treats.

  • Henry US Survival AR-7 Hides Entire Rifle In The Stock

    Henry US Survival AR-7 Hides Entire Rifle In The Stock

    We love survival rifles.  They’re potent enough for survival situations, they’re light and they can be taken apart to a compact size for easy portability.  With the world preparing for all sorts of apocalypse scenarios, we doubt it can hurt to arm yourself with one.  This Henry US Survival AR-7 Rifle looks like a great firearm to keep in your emergency apocalypse backpack.

    Google Nexus 7 Tablet Announced For $199

    We’ll probably never get an iPad killer, but we sure damn well can use an injection of excitement in the Android tablet space.  And for all intents and purposes, that just may be what the Google Nexus 7 does. Built by Taiwan-based manufacturer Asus, the new slate takes on dimensions similar to the Kindle Fire, quickly positioning the device as a credible opposition to Amazon’s popular 7-inch tablet.  Adding fuel to the fire (pun intended), Google’s intending to peddle it [...]

    Get Real Ratchet With This Unbreakable Hatchet

    Man with a hatchet versus man driving a giant tractor sounds like a David and Goliath battle.  You can hack at that tractor all you want but we doubt you’ll be able to hack it enough to destroy it before it runs over you and your favorite Best Made Axe.  Well, maybe David can win this one, too, if you arm yourself with this Unbreakable Hatchet. Why would you really need an axe that doesn’t break?  We’re not sure. Maybe [...]

  • Vintage Badassery: A Triple Barrel Revolver

    Vintage Badassery: A Triple Barrel Revolver

    Sometimes, you can put down an enemy in one shot.  Other times, they survive bullets like a video game boss, requiring three, four or more hits before falling down.  During post-apocalypse earth, we’re guessing that will be the norm with mutated humans and crossbred monsters ruling the land and all.  This Triple Barrel Revolver looks like the kind of handgun you should be carrying. Found in the collection of a Russian gun enthusiast, there are no details on the gunsmith [...]

    Cyclone Is A Working Rollercoaster For Your Desk

    Model trains on your desk at work?  Been there, done that.  Lego spaceships and novelty figurines?  So over it.  If you’ve been hankering for something else to make the doldrums of office hours more tolerable, you might fancy trying the Cyclone, an old-school-style wooden roller-coaster. Designed to resemble the wooden amusement park attractions of old, this miniature reproduction simulates all the twists and turns of the classic ride, without the more modern loops and jumps that feed today’s adrenaline-seeking appetites.   [...]

    Randall Jr. Lets You Add Extra Flavors To Your Beer

    Making your own beer sure is fun.  Between getting the right equipment, learning all the steps and experimenting with ingredients, though, it’s a lot of work most people would rather not deal with.  If you’re just hoping to add a slight off-kilter taste to your favorite off-the-shelf brand, setting up a microbrewery is overkill.  The Randall Jr. Personal Beer Infuser should prove a more appropriate solution. Made by Dogfish Head, it’s a  simple contraption for adding extra flavor to your [...]

    Houreisen Face Exercise Mask Gives You A Natural Face Lift

    Face lifts and botox can make sagging cheeks look tight again.  Unless you’ve managed to set up plenty of expendable income, though, expensive surgery is probably not an option that’s readily available.  Maybe you can try this Houreisen Face Exercise Mask, which supposedly tightens sagging cheeks by “giving your face a workout.” Worn on the lower side of the face, the mask hooks to your ears and while cradling both cheeks.  I guess it’s supposed to pull the skin upwards [...]

    If you’re serious about preparing for the zombie invasion, you know better than to stock up on just guns and bullets.  Loud and exhaustible, they’re not exactly the thinking man’s zombie weapon of choice.  You need something quiet and recyclable for use multiple times over like the M48 Ranger Hawk Axe.

    Trucker’s Friend Is A Multi-Tool For Big Rig Drivers

    Any time a multi-tool looks like a hand-to-hand combat weapon right off a post-apocalypse movie, we have to gush. And gush like young girls at a Justin Bieber concert is exactly what we do at the Trucker’s Friend, a multi-purpose tool designed for the cats with greasy mesh caps, flannel shirts and a sweaty crack sneaking out the back of their pants.  Or whatever other truck driver stereotype you subscribe to. Made by Innovation Factory,  the contraption integrates a number [...]

    Double Barrel Pistol Fires Two Bullets In One Action

    Two bullets hitting the same target is always more fun than one.  That’s why every video game super cop  simultaneously fires a pistol from each hand at some point.  And that’s why people gushed over the ridiculous Doppleglock.  The Double Barrel Pistol simplifies the two-bullet action, letting you shoot a pair of slugs using just a single gun. Made by Arsenal Firearms, the deadly weapon can fire two .45 caliber rounds at the same time.  Just like video game guns [...]

    Why camp in a regular tent when you can make your temporary shelter in a giant hammock?  We guess that’s the perfect rationale behind the Tentsile, a tent designed to dangle in the air like a hanging bed of canvas.  Except with more floor space. Or hold on, maybe its to protect you from walkers when the apocalypse arrives! Just make sure its high enough so they can’t bite your behind while you are sound sleep.

Why not just use something like the BBQ Pizza Pan or cook the dough straight on the grate?  While you can hustle a pizza that way, in no way can it produce that classic wood [...]
