    Breaking Bad’s amazing run may be concluding in eight episodes this year, but that doesn’t mean it will leave our minds and hearts any time soon.  In fact, it’s probably more likely we’ll see a good amount of merchandise to close out one of the best shows ever made for television.  And if that’s what you’ve been looking forward to, you won’t want to miss this Walter White/Heisenberg Action Figure from Mezco. Yep, the 50 year old Chemistry teacher turned [...]

    LEGO Technic Service Truck Set 42008 Pics

    M80 Vertigo Standing Guitar Case: No More Bending Over

    You may not be the best guitar player in the club tonight.  Heck, you’re barely even intermediate.  You don’t care, though — chicks don’t really dig dudes that can wax magical on those ancient instruments with strings anymore.  All you really care about is how cool you can look with one.  The M80 Vertigo Electric Case ensures you’ve got the style over substance part down pat. Bending down to open your guitar case, taking out the instrument and getting back [...]

    Do Laundry at Work: Petit Laundry Swoosh Portable Washing Machine

    Somehow, you managed to convince the boss to let you install a personal fridge, a mini-donut factory, and a single-serve espresso machine in your office workstation. Having a mini-kitchen in your personal cubicle sure is handy, but it does open you up to spills and stains.  Might as well install a Petit Laundry Swoosh washing machine so you can clean your shirt when that happens. A desktop washing machine, it measures a compact 29 x 29 x 44 cm (w [...]

    Ready Fuel Makes Starting Fires Easier, Safer

    Want a quick way to get a fire going during your time in the wild, but not interested in hauling a liter of gasoline in your backpack?  Not a problem with Ready Fuel, a lightweight gel that ignites quickly and burns at high temperatures. Unlike lighter fluid and gasoline, this isn’t just a fire starter.  More than simply igniting when applied to a flame, it can double as the burning material all on its own, giving you a fire that [...]

    All The Cool Stuff You Can Expect From Fred And Friends In Spring 2013

    Chill, Baby Pacifiers - I’m not a big fan of dressing your babies in ridiculous gear. I mean, wait until they’re 13 — they’ll be weird enough without any help from you, guaranteed. Then again, if you need to make your baby look funny to help ease the stress of parenthood, these Chill, Baby pacifiers should do the trick.

  • 2-in-1 Cigar Holder And Flask Supports Your Two Favorite Vices

    2-in-1 Cigar Holder And Flask Supports Your Two Favorite Vices

    If you’re going to hold on to a vice, might as well make it two.  We’re guessing that’s the rationale behind this 2-in-1 Cigar Holder and Flask, which gives you a pocket-stuffed container for your after-work relaxation staples. While styled as a standard drink flask, the container actually comes with a second opening that leads to a slot for two 46-ring cigars up to 7 inches long.  That way, you can follow up a bite of your favorite scotch with [...]

  • Titanium Entry Card Arms You With Two Sets Of Lock Picks In Your Wallet

    Titanium Entry Card Arms You With Two Sets Of Lock Picks In Your Wallet

    Experienced lock pickers can probably improvise opening doors using a whole host of stuff they can find around the vicinity.  Folks who only break into a lock when the need arises (such as when you’re locked out of the house, you lose the cabinet keys or when you discover a hidden treasure inside a locked chest) will need proper tools to do the job.  This Titanium Entry Card should get you sufficiently equipped. Sized to fit into a wallet (3.5 [...]

  • Bacon Shaving Cream Might Just Entice You To Shave Everyday

    Bacon Shaving Cream Might Just Entice You To Shave Everyday

    I personally steer clear of novelty bacon-flavored hygiene products just because they rarely make sense.  Bacon perfume, bacon shampoo and bacon soaps don’t exactly fill me with excitement — who wants to walk around smelling like fried pork belly fat from head to toe? We’ll make an exception for the J&D Bacon Shaving Cream, though. For the most part, it makes sense.  Bacon is great for breakfast; you shave every morning.  Eating a whole bunch of bacon will leave the lower [...]

  • Hot Can Christmas Dinner: Because It’s A Lonely World Out There

    Hot Can Christmas Dinner: Because It’s A Lonely World Out There

    We’re not sure why the Hot Can Christmas Dinner is marketed specifically for the holidays.  If you’re eating alone during Christmas, you’re probably eating alone most of the year, too.  At any rate, it’s here: hot food in a can with no other appliance necessary. You want hot food but you have no cooktop, no microwave and absolutely no way to heat canned grub?  That’s not a problem with this canned holiday feast (ummm… snack), which can self-heat all by [...]

    Kata Revolver 8 Backpack Provides Easy Access To Multiple Lenses

    Sure, that Dryzone 200 and Ultimate Photographers Bag has served you well in your multiple lensman gigs, but you know deep in your heart that the perfect bag is still out there.  Maybe the Kata Revolver 8 PL is exactly what you’re waiting for. The winner of a 2012 Red Dot Design Award, it’s billed as a “revolutionary backpack for professional photographers.”  And the “revolutionary” part isn’t all hype — instead, it features a revolver design for the lens compartments, [...]

  • Baseball Bat Flashlight Lights The Way While You Bash Everything In Sight

    Baseball Bat Flashlight Lights The Way While You Bash Everything In Sight

    Back when I started driving, I always looked at the Maglite in my glove compartment as a potential weapon in case an impromptu traffic spat occurred on the road.  It’s got enough size, enough hardness and enough strength to really crack a bone on someone’s face if you smash with enough force.   But I’d probably trade the toughest flashlight in a heartbeat for one of these Baseball Bat Flashlights. Yes, it’s a flashlight clad in the shape of a baseball [...]

  • A Life-Sized, Realistic-Looking Blue Whale Kite

    A Life-Sized, Realistic-Looking Blue Whale Kite

    What will the world look like if those gigantic whales can soar through the air?   I’m guessing pretty awesome.  While we’ll probably never see that unless a new mad science forces all of Earth’s creatures to evolve, the Blue Whale Kite should give us a glimpse at magical that will be. Made by New Zealand-based Peter Lynn Kites, it’s a giant kite clad in the form of a life-sized blue whale.  Not only is it dolled up like the cetacean [...]

Unlike the last generation’s low-key updates, the new phone gets some pretty significant changes.  From hardware design to specs to features, there’s plenty for iPhone fans to really buzz about. Design The iPhone 5 is bigger than the previous generation model, sporting a 4-inch [...]

  • 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 [...]

    Black & Decker Matrix Makes Your Power Tools Modular

    Carrying a full set of power tools isn’t easy.  Those things are big and heavy, after all.  If you’re looking to do handyman jobs without hauling an entire box of power tools, you might want to invest in Black & Decker’s Matrix Quick-Connect system. 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 [...]
