    Goldfish Trash Bag Makes Your Refuse Look Tasteful, Stray Cats Agree

    Want to mess with the trash collector’s head?  Throw your household refuse into a Goldfish Trash Bag and make them give your garbage a second look. The erstwhile regular trash bags come with a novelty design, making it look like a water-filled receptacle with a few giant goldfish swimming inside.  Watch them pick the pile up and stop right before throwing it into the compactor, double-checking whether it’s really just fake fish swimming in there. Each Goldfish Trash Bag is [...]

  • Diamond Plate Kegerator Cabinet Adds A TV To Your Beer Tap

    Diamond Plate Kegerator Cabinet Adds A TV To Your Beer Tap

    A beer keg with a flat screen TV right next to the tap is a bad idea in so many ways.  Still, I doubt that’s going to stop people from getting the Diamond Plate Kegerator Cabinet.  So, I’ll just pipe off my warnings and hope someone heeds them before it’s too late. See that brand-spanking new HDTV?  That’s about to get doused in beer and ice.  Mark my words.  Every drunk worth the alcohol content in his brew have spilled [...]

  • S T R E T C H Turns Giant Rubber Band Into A Shelving Solution

    S T R E T C H Turns Giant Rubber Band Into A Shelving Solution

    Rubber bands for shelves?  That sounds silly, but the S T R E T C H Shelf (yep, it’s spelled with all those irritating spaces) shows how it can be done, and the results are particularly attractive. The modular shelving solution uses one large rubber band and an array of pegs that you can arrange whichever way you fancy.  Simply position those pegs on your wall, wring the rubber band around them and you’ve got yourself a most awesome-looking wall [...]

  • Camper Bike Adds A Mobile Home To Your Pedal-Powered Ride

    Camper Bike Adds A Mobile Home To Your Pedal-Powered Ride

    A towable camper is great – if you have a vehicle to attach it to, in the first place.  Luckily, those who have ditched four-wheeled gas guzzlers can also enjoy the same motorhome amenities with the Camper Bike, which loads on the back of a utility tricycle like a pickup camper. Used as a sculpture concept, rather than a commercial product, the non-motorized mobile home latches on the back end of three-wheeled Chinese bikes (the ones where the cab is [...]

  • Mattress Wallet Gives Your Cash A Cushy Bed

    Mattress Wallet Gives Your Cash A Cushy Bed

    I’ve always wanted to sleep in a bed of money.  While I doubt that’s possible with my bank account’s less-than-stellar remaining balance, the Mattress Wallet sort of gets me started along the way.  Instead of filling my bed with money, though, it lets me wrap my cash with a bed, instead.  What? Veering away from the usual leather material used to hold your bills and cards, the odd-looking wallet is clad in an authentic mattress design.  From the material to [...]

  • SatanVision: Hellishly Bad TV

    SatanVision: Hellishly Bad TV

    The SatanVision is supposed to represent how televisions will look like in hell.  Barring that the fiery furnace exists, it should play nice with its closest earthly relative, too – the annual Burning Man festival, for which the apparatus was made. Lo-fi and painfully red, the display hardware was created by DIY enthusiast David Forbes, who spent months of his life and $1000′s of his own cash to make the crappiest TV ever.  Well, nobody said he was smart, so [...]

    Wonder Woman Reebok Freestyles Will Go Well With Your Golden Tiara

    Linda Carter fans of yesteryear, who are probably in their forties now, are terrible targets for a funky-looking pair of colorful hi-tops.  Still, how can anyone resist raving over this pair of Wonder Woman Reeboks (official model name is Reebok Freestyle Hi Femme Fatale)? Diana Prince (aka Wonder Woman) gets her entire crime-fighting outfit draped across this special edition Reebok Freestyle, which comes clad in a shiny metallic finish.  Sporting a blue star-spangled heel tab (with the trademark W logo [...]

  • Dunk Mug Keeps Your Coffee And Biscuits All In One Place

    Dunk Mug Keeps Your Coffee And Biscuits All In One Place

    Like to have biscuits with your coffee?  Have less dishes to clean up later with the Dunk Mug, an unusual-looking mug with a place for cookies and biscuits on the side. Because of the modified design, the Dunk Mug is able to handle less coffee than usual, which dampens its thrill a bit.  It’s not the perfect mug, yet, but you have to admit – not having to carry biscuits on your other hand is a heck of a convenience.  [...]

  • Sudoku Solver Robot Answers Puzzles, Writes Legibly

    Sudoku Solver Robot Answers Puzzles, Writes Legibly

    Why bother solving Sudoku puzzles when you can get a robot to do it?  That makes sense, of course, if you can build a text-reading, puzzle-solving and answer-writing android like Swedish hacker Hans Andersson’s Sudoku Solver, which he built using a Lego Mindstorms kit. The robot performs a quick scan of the puzzle, sweeping the light sensor across the page to determine which cells are empty.  Once it takes account of the blank areas, it looks through all the non-empty [...]

    gScreen Spacebook Full-Sized Dual Screen Laptops Coming In December

    It’s not the first time a dual-screen laptop showed up, but the gScreen sure does it in a way no one else did.  Instead of adding a small secondary screen like previous efforts, the company’s gScreen Spacebook throws in two full displays on a single machine. The prototype they’re currently showing around is a 15.4-inch model, sporting two full-sized LCDs.  In compact form, one screen hides behind the other, allowing you to use just one monitor if it’s all you [...]

    Tom Wright’s Street-Legal Bumper Cars

    Bumper cars were crazy fun when I was a kid.  Even as an adult today, they still look immensely entertaining and I’d probably be on one every weekend if only everyone else lined up to ride them weren’t in grade school.  Instead of drawing power from the floor or ceiling like regular flat rides, these bumper cars seen around the San Diego area not only run independently – you can drive them down public roads. That’s right, these bumper cars, [...]

Created by Alexander McDonnell, the TOOB was born after a brief, unsuccessful search for a dome-like projector that he can install at home.  Instead of letting the idea go, he decided to build one as affordably as possible.  The result is a minimalist setup that can [...]

    Next-Generation Rodem Wheelchair Lets Users Board And Get Off Unassisted

    Having a wheelchair is great for mobility, but getting from your bed to one isn’t exactly something most wheelchair users can do autonomously.  The Rodem is a next-generation wheelchair that aims to make sliding into it something that everyone can perform all by themselves. Instead of requiring a nurse to assist you into the wheelchair and off it, the Rodem lets you do that on your own, allowing for more independent mobility.  It redesigns the conventional wheelchair altogether, turning it [...]

    Are You looking to make a difference in this World, but don’t where to begin?  Well, those born in September can start this coming month by asking their friends to forego their birthday gifts and use the money for charity instead. The year before, Charity: Water’s September campaign resulted in 800 people giving up their birthday presents, asking their friends, family and other acquaintances to donate to the organization instead.  This resulted in close to $1,000,000 of donations that brought [...]

    Surf Skiing: Ski The Waves

    Skiers have it tough.  Riding next to snowboarders on the slope, they just look dorky.  Vermont resident Jason Starr doesn’t make it any easier with his new invention, called Surf Skiing, which brings the winter sport to the water. Just like skiing, the new activity involves wearing separate equipment for each foot and holding on to something to push yourself on the water.  Instead of sharp skis, you attach two boards to your feet, with a long paddle to propel [...]
