• Can’t Afford A Car?  Steal That Shopping Cart And Turn It Into A LOLriokart

    Can’t Afford A Car? Steal That Shopping Cart And Turn It Into A LOLriokart

    Can’t pool enough bills for your own ride?  Here’s an idea.  Steal one of those wheeled grocery baskets and slowly build it up into a usable cart,  just like the LOLriokart, a modified shopping cart that’s been rigged to become a motorized vehicle. Forget about pushing your grocery down the aisle.  With this thing in tow, you can drive down from one shelf to another, all while sitting on the kart like a drooling five year old.  Even better, you [...]

  • Emergency Flares Without The Burn – The Lite Flare

    Emergency Flares Without The Burn – The Lite Flare

    Flares are awesome, but if your car conks out a lot when you drive at night, you can easily burn through a whole lot of them.  Think of the Lite Flare as your extended emergency blaze, offering a more practical alternative to incendiary flares. Armed with two AA batteries, it can flash for a total of 400 hours, taking the place of over 700 regular flares.  It’s safer (no more burns), cheaper (in the long run) and takes less room [...]

  • The Bedazzler: A Dizzying DIY, Non-Lethal Weapon

    The Bedazzler: A Dizzying DIY, Non-Lethal Weapon

    Not too long ago, Homeland Security showed off a new $1 million non-lethal weapon.  Billed as the The Dazzler, the device blinds targets with a strong flash, leaving them dizzy and feeling “sea-sick.”  Since you probably don’t have the cool million to spare, you should be able to replicate it in a smaller scale with The Bedazzler, a $250 handheld incapacitator that mimics the effects of the government-issue instrument. While I’m not sure how effective it would be for temporary [...]

    New e-Wolf e2 Electric Supercar Channels Lambo And Ferrari, Looks Wicked

    Hey, look, another electric supercar.  And one that makes EVs from Tesla, Fisker and Shelby look like they don’t even deserve to use the name.  The e-Wolf e2 is the latest planned vehicle from the German firm, shamelessly borrowing its shape from playboy-worthy Italian roadburners. Don’t let your heart race in excitement, yet, as the unapologetically Lambo-inspired 1.2-meter tall number only exists on paper.  Considering that e-Wolf did show off a working electric sportscar at the Frankfurt Motor Show (the [...]

    Gas Mask Bra: From Undergarment To Emergency Protection In A Couple Of Snaps

    There’s a gas attack, take off your bras if you want to survive!  Yeah, I want to be there when that happens, too.  And if the Gas Mask Bra ever picks up in popularity, that might just turn out to be an accurate account. Able to transform from a brassiere into two protective face masks, the clever undergarment lets you be ready in the face of an unexpected emergency.  You can wear both face masks (if you’re really, really paranoid) [...]

    PC Drawer And Locking Safe Adds A Storage Compartment To Your Desktop Box

    Got a few empty slots on the front of your desktop PC case (who doesn’t)?  Why not put the space to good use with the PC Drawer and Locking Safe, which adds a functional storage compartment to your desktop rig. Classic desktop cases offer a lot of room for front-panel expansion.  Funny thing is, most people really don’t have any use for them, other than for an optical drive and added ports.  In fact, the lot of PC boxes I’ve [...]

    Cassette Tapes Find New Life In Brian Dettmer’s Awesome Skeleton Art

    Still got a stash of cassette tapes from years past?  Rather than throw them out, you might want to draw some decorative ideas from these skull designs, which sees the old audio recording formats turned to snazzy-looking sculptures. Atlanta-based artist Brian Dettmer began fashioning the creations back in 2005 and has produced quite a large set of cassette tape skeleton figures.  To date, he has put together twelve human skulls, one full human skeleton and a number of creations mimicking [...]

    SpaBerry Portable Hot Tubs Let You Plug And Soak, Inspires Suggestive Faces

    Like lounging around in a hot tub wherever you turn up and making ecstatic faces (see guy in the photo)?  Just throw the SpaBerry in the back of your pickup and enjoy soaking in warm suds even in the middle of a forest. We made that sound too easy.  It’s actually not.  Weighing 240 lbs without water, these portable hot tubs should require a little muscle to lug around (like Incredible Hulk-type of sustained strength).  Beyond that, however, all you [...]
