    USB Comb Saves Your Data, Fixes Your Pompadour

    Your hair is constantly a mess, requiring periodic grooming.  You need a comb.  However, with a cell phone, wallet, iPod, flash drive and other small things in your pockets, there’s really no room for anything else.  Here’s an idea: trade in the flash storage for this USB Comb and never look disheveled again. Sporting both a full-sized comb and a USB flash drive (right on the handle), it’s a clever compromise for anyone who likes to keep their hair neat [...]

  • The Royal Cart: A $55,000 Mini-Hummer Golf Cart

    The Royal Cart: A $55,000 Mini-Hummer Golf Cart

    Golf carts are never bad ass.  Small, underpowered and geared for prancing around 18 holes, it’s normal for them to be fittingly understated.  Custom tuner Bad Ass Golf Carts don’t seem to think so, however, especially not after their latest creation.   Called The Royal Cart, the motorized golf course vehicle is clad like a shrunken version of a Hummer H3. Rather than a beastly-looking cart, though, the tuned-out ride looks like a cartoon version of the mid-sized SUV – 18-inch [...]

    Honda EV-Cub Motorcycle Features All-Electric, 2WD Drivetrain, Inter-Vehicle Communications

    Bicycle-like in frame and ran by electric power, the Honda EV-Cub is the auto manufacturer’s vision of motorcycles within our immediate future.   Sure, it’s not the same burly and macho bike we’ve all been accustomed to, but the sleek little number brings a lot of advantages to the table. Sporting a two-wheel drive (separate motors running each of the front and rear wheels), the bike should offer more stability and traction on loose and wet surfaces than its rear-wheel counterparts.  [...]

  • Bottle Your Own Perfume With The Missisippi Distiller

    Bottle Your Own Perfume With The Missisippi Distiller

    With a name like the Missisippi Distiller (yep, they misspelled Mississippi), there’s little room to suspect this thing does anything but produce cheap alcohol in some obscure garage in the middle of nowhere.  As it turns out, that’s not what it does at all.  Instead, the distilling machine is designed to extract scented oils from plant leaves, so you can concoct your own perfumes and fragrances (and, perhaps, your own moonshine, too). Looking like an apparatus out of a mad [...]

    Bottle Opening Hammer, The Alcoholic Handyman’s Best Tool For The Job

    Zombie Shooting Gallery: Target Practice For Future Survivors

    Video games are evil.  Learn a real skill instead.  So quit that Left 4 Dead game for a minute and turn your attention to the Zombie Shooting Gallery, a tabletop shooting arena that lets you take out a never-ending supply of brain-eating villains. We love video games just as much as the next guy, but we all have been spending an extended amount of time staring into rectangular boxes nowadays, aren’t we?  At the least, the game lets you play [...]

    Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon: The Greatest Movie Never Made, Turned Into A Book

    Vaporware fans rejoice!  Stanley Kubrick’s unfilmed ouvre on Napoleon Bonaparte, which many consider to be “The Greatest Movie Never Made” (I know how stupid that sounds),  is celebrated on a new collector’s edition book that details all the two years of work the director has spent in preparation for it. Discussed by Kubrick fans and film buffs for over forty years, Napoleon was supposed to be one big-ass epic.   In fact, the director was said to have amassed an “unparalleled [...]

    Undercap Puts A Brief On Your Head… No, The Real Head

    Still thinking up a costume for Halloween?  Slip your Handerpants gloves on, throw the Undercap over your head, wear briefs over spandex pants and call yourself the Underwear Avenger – saving the world from going commando one sweaty enclosed area at a time. Ok. That’s gross. Regardless, there’s no denying the innate awesomeness of the Undercap, which is touted as an underwear for your head.  Whether you like to wear wigs, baseball hats, ski caps or any other type of [...]

    Norfolk Southern NS 999: The World’s First Battery Powered All-Electric Train

    Plug-in electric cars make plenty of sense now.  But a train?  Norfolk Southern just unveiled their prototype locomotive, the 100% battery-powered NS 999. Developed in partnership with the US Department of Energy, the Federal Railroad Administration and Penn State, the barreling green beast won’t be carrying a diesel engine like other trains.  Instead, it’s going to roll using a 1,500 horsepower electric motor, powered exclusively by a 1,080 units of 12-volt lead-acid batteries. The Norfolk Southern NS 999 can carry [...]

    ACG Surf Racks Add Board Mounts On Your Bicycle, Makes For Instant Roofing Too

    Bicycling to a surf spot sounds like a stupid idea.  Picturing it, in fact, hurts my head.  That is, of course, until you chance upon one of the products from ACG Surf Racks, which adds a mounting panel on your bicycle for surfboards of various shapes and sizes. I’ve seen side-mounted board racks in the past, but ACG’s overhead compartments appear to be a much better idea.  Sure, that pipe hanging in front of you can be distracting, but you [...]

    Here’s one good reason to wear a suit when you leave the house.  Japanese company Haruyama Trading claims they’ve managed to produce a men’s business suit with integrated protection against the H1N1 virus, killing the organisms upon contact. How does it keep the disease at bay?  According to Haruyama, their anti-swine flu suits are coated with chemical titanium dioxide, which reacts with light to help break down and eliminate the H1N1 strain.

    Law & Order Coloring Book: Why Watch Crime When You Can Color It?

    I love TV crime drama – it’s my guilty pleasure.  The long-running  (19 seasons and counting) Law & Order series has been part of my annual viewing diet for a good amount of time now.  I’ve never been an avid fan, but I do catch it (along with those other spin-offs) whenever I can. Dealing with murders, robberies and other similar cases, without the hip angle other detective shows bring along, it’s not exactly the kind of thing that receives [...]

    How fun would it be to drive a car that tilts?  If the Nissan Land Glider concept does make it into production, you’ll know soon enough. Barely wide enough to fit one driver in the front seat, the tiny electric car features a computer-controlled steering system that literally leans the chassis during turns.  The effect is quite the sight to look at, with the entire vehicle shifting its weight on one side like a speeding motorcycle. The Nissan Land Glider [...]
