• Autotec’s Gentlemanly Wearable Robot Opens Doors For You

    Autotec’s Gentlemanly Wearable Robot Opens Doors For You

     It’s official. You can’t lock robots inside the house anymore. A new robot arm from Japanese manufacturer BL Autotec should be able to reach out for the doorknob and open the door when attached to an emergency droid, clearing the way for the rest of their robot cavalry to escape. Yep, the damn golems don’t have to fire steel-melting lasers or launch obstacle-blasting missiles anymore. All the limbed robot has to do is wield its mechanical arm, give the [...]

    How To Fill Your Wardrobe With Red Carpet Oscar Dresses

     Though you’ll never be a celebrity, there’s nothing stopping you from trying to look like one. You’ve already copied Sandra Bullock’s hair, eyebrows and lipstick, but wisely kept your own cleavage (good thinking btw). So, why not don her showstopping dress from the Oscars too? But…but…you can’t afford that Marchesa, I know. That’s why I’m sending you over to Chinese warehouse wholesaler Light In The Box, who already have a page up selling replicas of dresses worn by the [...]

  • Bakon Vodka Flavors Your Drink With Some Tasty Pig

    Bakon Vodka Flavors Your Drink With Some Tasty Pig

     Flavored vodka has never been my thing, but I’ve always said I’ll make an exception for one that tastes like roasted pig. The Bakon Vodka isn’t exactly luau fare, but I’m tempted to grab a bite. I mean a swig. Need an excuse to drink in the morning? Uhh, I guess this will do. Dispensing of all that fruity-flavored mixes we usually find for the popular distilled liquor, this one’s laced with the meaty, savory and cholesterol-imbalancing taste of [...]

    Wrap Your Laptop In A Chic South African Cement Bag

     Why buy a run-of-the-mill laptop bag when you can buy one that prepares you for a potential career? That’s exactly what you get with the PPC Cement Laptop Bag, a full-featured messenger bag made from unused cement sacks. What kind of career, you ask? One in mixing cement, of course, as the bag features complete instructions printed all over it. Do you know, for instance, that to mix a low strength concentrate of the calcined limestone and clay, you [...]

  • GasCase Diesel And Fuel Bring Gas Station Chic To The Jetset Crowd

    GasCase Diesel And Fuel Bring Gas Station Chic To The Jetset Crowd

     Here’s a guaranteed way to get you flagged by airport security: bring along luggage disguised as jerrycans. Infuriating airport personnel is exactly what you’ll do with the GasCase Diesel and GasCase Fuel, two trolley cases that epitomize “gas station chic.” Okay, I just made up that last phrase. Paired with a service shirt complete with a name patch, though, that’s about the only way I can describe your blue collar fashion aesthetic. Both bags are made from pickled sheet [...]

    Place Setting Placemats Are Here To Save The Day

     I have no idea what’s supposed to go where on the dining table. As long as the food is on my plate and not anywhere else, I’m set. Of course, that doesn’t inspire much confidence when you’ve got guests you’re trying to impress coming over for dinner. Fortunately, you can practice with the Place Setting Placemats, which draw you an outline of where everything goes when hosting a formal dinner. You may not care where the dessert fork should [...]

    Power Gig Does Rhythm Gaming With Real Guitars

    Not a fan of the way Guitar Hero and Rock Band have dumbed down playing music to the level of button mashing? Then you may find Power Gig: Rise of the SixString refreshing, as it delivers a real six-string experience to the music gaming genre. Announced at the start of the Game Developers Conference earlier today, the novel approach comes courtesy of Seven45 Studio, who develop and publish the game, as well as manufacture their own controller for it.

  • Yes, You Can Now Order A Martin Jetpack And Fly It Soon

    Yes, You Can Now Order A Martin Jetpack And Fly It Soon

    If you told me fifteen years ago that we still won’t have widely available jetpacks in 2010, I would have cried and then kicked you in the head. Its like telling  a little kid that Santa lost his pilot’s license and can’t deliver gifts anymore. . Of course, we’d have jetpacks at WalMart in 2010! Are you crazy? Fast forward to the second decade of the 21st century and we still don’t have the personal flight system that sci-fi dreams [...]

    ExiTool Cuts Seatbelts, Breaks Windows And Helps You Find Your Way To Safety

    Every year, there are more than six million car accidents in the United States alone. Some are nasty that you have no control over and its just bad luck, karma or what ever you wanna call it. Then there are situations that are scary, need quick thinking and action. You never know when you’ll figure in a crazy one, of course – like jumping off a cliff, diving in the water or sliding on a puddle of oil then knocking [...]

    CD Wall Tiles Let You Decorate The Wall With Album Cover Art

    We know you’ve got all of Celine Dion’s albums. Even those recorded in foreign languages. Why hide the Celine love when you can show it off with the CD Wall Tile, a wall-mounted CD case that can turn your beloved collection into a guaranteed date killer – unless you’re dating that chick from the Celine Dion Fans Club, of course. If that’s the case, then someone’s getting action tonight…yeehaw. Since you can get most any music you want off iTunes [...]

    Toy Travel Agency: Because Stuffed Bears Enjoy Seeing The World Too

    Everyone needs a break. Even non-living things. At least, that’s according to the Toy Travel Agency, who takes your beloved Barbies, GI Joes and Furbys on tour around the City of Prague in the Czech Republic. Uhhh… Surreal? You bet. Concocted by 22-year old decorator Marek Hlavka, the idea was pitched to a panel of local businessmen for a reality TV show last month. Oddly enough, he managed to get two investors on board (Tomio Okamura and Dana Berova, a [...]

  • Opera Pop-Up Camper Makes Outdoor Camping A Genuine Luxury

    Opera Pop-Up Camper Makes Outdoor Camping A Genuine Luxury

    Yes, it’s really just a pop-up camper. For some reason, though, I’m very keen on the Opera’s official billing as a “mobile designer suite.” Both inside and out, the thing unabashedly screams luxury. Low and sleek, it looks nothing like the bevy of motor homes you can find campers hauling down RV resorts during the summer. The stretched canvas cover, in fact, looks more like a fancy event tent than bivouacking equipment.  Want to indulge in sumptuous sophistication while dirtying [...]

    Carpuccino, A Coffee-Powered Automobile

    If coffee fuels you in the morning, why can’t it do the same with your car? We’ve known about coffee’s potential as a biofuel for a while. Now, somebody’s actually gone ahead and used it in the Carpuccino, an automobile that pulls its juice out of granulated coffee beans. Created for the British show Bang Goes The Theory, the car will go on display at the Big Bang Science Fair in Manchester, as part of an exhibit to show off [...]

    Who’s the real master of your domain? Doesn’t matter what your wife thinks when you’re the one sitting on the Brobdingnagian Sports Chair, a ridiculously huge folding chair fit for a king. Tired of tall people always blocking your sight while sitting in the bleachers? Not anymore. With this chair in tow, you’re guaranteed to be the biggest douche guy in the stadium and you don’t even have to look like Kanye West to do it. Sexay. The Brobdingnagian Sports [...]

    Rii Mini Wireless Keyboard Puts An All-In-One PC Accessory In Your Hands

    Do you really need another keyboard? Probably not. But who can say no to the Rii Mini Wireless Keyboard, a handheld input device that combines standard computing keys (including F1 to F8), a trackpad, game-friendly buttons and a laser pointer? Yes, I guess you do need a handheld keyboard. Especially one that squeezes in a slew of all-in-one features that will let you control that multimedia PC you’ve hooked up to the HDTV while you’re lounging six feet away on [...]

    G-Shock Hyper Color Man Box Watch Is A Colorful Girl Repellent

    There’s no Guinness Record for the ugliest watch of the galaxy.  If there was, though, I wouldn’t be surprised to find the G-Shock Hyper Color Man Box ranking high on the aspirants’ list. Clad in a cornucopia of intentionally uncoordinated bright colors, it looks like an 80s fashion accessory dreamed up by Cyndi Lauper, while she was stoned on crack cocaine, singing “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.”  Seriously, though, imagine how good this will look with a mismatched pair of [...]

    Lacoste Alligator Lace Gives New Meaning To Logo Shirts

    Alligators are the only animals I love more than my retarded dog.  In fact, if one ever wandered into the house, I’ll be tempted to feed the mutt to the reptile just to make it stay.  So imagine my joy when I saw the new Lacoste and Campagna Brothers collaboration, the Alligator Lace, which creates an entire shirt out of nothing but Lacoste’s embroidered alligator logo.  For real. You know that small, iconic Lacoste emblem that goes into the overpriced [...]

    Truckbot Is An Intelligent Robot With A Smartphone Brain

    Got an old smartphone?  Don’t trade it in and don’t sell it for cheap to anyone who vaguely resembles a mad scientist.  If you do, you may be aiding in humanity’s demise against the robot invasion.  Proof: the currently dumb, but potentially powerful Truckbot, a robot with a smartphone grey matter. The brainchild of Tim Heath and Ryan Hickman, the first-generation droid may look like a sloppy patch-up job now.  In fact, it looks nothing more than a miniature handcart [...]

    JakPak Jacket Is A Sleeping Bag, Emergency Shelter And A Tent

    When you need to camp for the night while trekking in the woods, having both a tent and a sleeping bag does sound awesome.  Carrying them around while you’re climbing rocks or slaving over tough trails, however, doesn’t.  With the JakPak, a jacket that can transform into either a sleeping bag or a covered shelter, there’s no need to compromise either way. A versatile garment for active, outdoor lifestyles, it can turn from an all-weather jacket into a personal sleeping [...]
