  • USB Wrist Band Fits Geeky Flash Storage Into A Sporty Bracelet

    USB Wrist Band Fits Geeky Flash Storage Into A Sporty Bracelet

    Wearable USB flash drives generally aren’t all that hot. The last one we saw, a pair of Calvin Klein shades with integrated storage, looked decidedly off-putting. These USB Wrist Bands, however, are a whole other story, able to fuse both fashion and function, without being tacky. Created by USB Hub, the wrist-worn accessories look like colorful baller bands, at first glance. A closer inspection, though, will show a raised bump around the connecting area where the actual flash drive is [...]

    Chopper Shocker: The Lowrider Bicycle

    When the world’s gas supply finally runs out, this is what greasy bikers will be rocking down the road. The Chopper Shocker borrows its aesthetics from lowrider motorcycles, complete with wide-profile handlebars and low-mounted seat. Its operation, however, is entirely pedal-powered, making it easily the coolest-looking bicycle I’ve ever seen. Its creators don’t give out much details about the ride, choosing instead to regale us with photos of the unique two-wheeler. That’s no problem, either, given how cool the damn [...]

    Build Your Own Paper Robots Helps You Assemble Your Very Own Mecha Army

    Remember the New York City papercraft models we featured not too long ago? As fun as building those paper skyscrapers might be, they’re not nearly as enjoyable as having an army of paper robots wreaking havoc in their streets. Build Your Own Paper Robots, a hardback volume with an accompanying CD, will show you how to flood it with robot invaders. Authored by Julius Perdana and Josh Buczynski (who, as far as we know, are made of flesh and blood), [...]

    Amateur spies, wannabe paparazzi and 13-year old voyeurs, rejoice!

    Muji Shower Radio Hides An AM/FM Tuner Inside An Innocent-Looking Shampoo Bottle

    Does anyone really shower with a radio on? In case you want to start, you might want to look at the Muji Shower Radio, a fully-functional AM/FM radio hiding under the guise of a shampoo bottle. Of course, it looks more like a baby powder container than a shampoo bottle to me. Regardless, it does look like it belongs on top of a bathroom shelf, ready to do your hygienic bidding when needed.

    YouTube Sensation Dramatic Chipmunk Gets Itself Painted On Canvas

    Remember the Dramatic Chipmunk on YouTube?  Someone has gone ahead and put it to canvas for posterity.  The result is an oil painting that is equally as disturbing as the video hat spawned it. As one of the most popular videos on YouTube, the Dramatic Chipmunk clip has spawned hits from over 14 million people and has been spoofed in countless references, including a South Park episode.  Who could resist a cute pet in such an ominous stare, after all?

    Freestyle Brings The Soda Dispenser To The 21st Century

    Soda dispensers usually have no more than five or six flavors of drinks. Coca-Cola’s next-gen Freestyle soda fountain, on the other hand, will come with more than one hundred choices. That’s right, you’ll soon get to pick from over 100 sweetened beverages right on one box – and it doesn’t occupy an entire room. Coca-Cola’s PR hounds are billing it as the “fountain of the future” and it’s tough to argue. After all, the only things you have to do [...]

    Devotec Solar Sound Speakers Look Like One Sexy Slab Of Brick

    Better portable speakers usually mean harsher power consumption, which makes it problematic for extended playback during outings and other outdoor activities.

    Okhotsk Blue Draft Is Beer Made From Melted Icebergs

The Okhotsk Blue Draft is one of the most unique beers around, counting a couple of unusual ingredients into its mix. Chief among its odd sources is water from melted icebergs that float to the Hokkaido beaches from the Sea of Okhotsk, an area in the Pacific [...]

    The Shweeb: Pedal-Powered Monorail Racing

    A “human-powered monorail” sounds like a lot of work.  Set it up as a race, however, with your participants suspended up in the air, and it begins sounding like a lot of fun.  That’s exactly what visitors get with the Shweeb, an amusement park ride out on New Zealand. The Shweeb consists of a series of rails on a set path, with aerodynamic capsules (enough to fit one person) hanging from it.  Each of the carts is fitted with a [...]

    Teddy Bear Guns – Now Even A Pacifist Can Pack Heat

    There is apparently a tradition at Japanese weddings in which small pink teddy bears are thrown at the bride and groom instead of confetti or rice. The Japanese, being the guys who brought the world Godzilla and Mothra , decided that was well ..lame. What on earth can be fun about throwing a little pink stuffed toy? Better idea, fire them out of a gun. Now that’s more like it (ask any seven year old boy.) Unfortunately for the aforementioned [...]

    Coaster Flip-Flops, So Your Drink Doesn’t Fall In The Sand

    I always knew flip-flops were missing something. I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was. Now I know. This pair of Aperitivo Flip Flops from designer Tommaso Colia fashions the footwear into a usable coaster, fitted with a circular cup holder built onto the surface. That means, when you sit on the sand, you can put it right next to you and use it to keep your beer upright. Basically, it turns erstwhile regular flip-flops into a two-in-one [...]
