• Arzum Firrin Reinvents The Toaster With A Tunnel Design

    Arzum Firrin Reinvents The Toaster With A Tunnel Design

    The classic pop-up toaster is arguably one of the most efficient kitchen appliance designs.  That’s why it’s still the dominant toaster design we use today.  While the Arzum Firrin probably doesn’t beat it on all fronts, the unique tunnel-like slide-out form should give it some advantages as well. Sporting a unique tunnel shape, the toaster features a slide-out tray sized to hold two pieces of bread.  To use, simply put your breads on the tray, push it into the tunnel, [...]

  • USB Utility Charge Tool Is A Swiss Army Knife For The Modern Times

    USB Utility Charge Tool Is A Swiss Army Knife For The Modern Times

    For most of us, Swiss Army Knives have lost their place in our pockets for daily use.  I mean, why would you really need a mini-knife, a mini-scissor and a mini-screwdriver head when you work in an office cubicle all day?  If you’ve been longing for something to take its place in your pocket, the USB Utility Charge Tool should make for a more useful contraption. Instead of miniature blade tools coming out of its pocket knife body, the contraption [...]

  • Insanity Werewolf Helmet Is Actually DOT Certified

    Insanity Werewolf Helmet Is Actually DOT Certified

    We’d be lying if we said the Insanity Werewolf Helmet is the sleekest motorcycle headgear we’ve ever seen.  It’s like a badly-made mask that, somehow, managed to look awesomely creepy.  And it works. A half-face helmet, it puts the likeness of an ugly werewolf (or a really ugly troll, it could go either way) over the the top of your head, but leaves your face open so you can get a clear view of the road.  Seriously, it looks like [...]

  • Tactical Fire Striker Pen Can Set Your Words On Fire

    Tactical Fire Striker Pen Can Set Your Words On Fire

        When I hear people in battle raps rhyme about putting their pens to paper, I always wonder whether they’re exercising poetic hyperbole or if they really write their bars old-school style with a pen and paper.  While I still don’t know the answer to that, anyone who actually still writes with a pen will probably be best served by this Tactical Fire Striker Pen. You know those old-school writers worked, right?  Mess of dried ink stuck all over [...]

  • Bootlegger Modular Bag Is Like Having 3 Backpacks In 1

    Bootlegger Modular Bag Is Like Having 3 Backpacks In 1

    At first, the idea of a modular backpack sounds a little too much design.  I mean, it’s not like shoulder straps raise the price of pack in exorbitant ways.  The Bootlegger Modular Pack System, however, offers a good argument for a modular pack: it lets you adjust the suspension in ways other backpacks probably can’t. The heart of the Bootlegger Modular Pack System is the Triple-Tramp Suspension, which consists of a comfy backing for the bag and all the straps [...]

  • Helmet Predator 2 Turns You Into An Alien Sport Hunter

    Helmet Predator 2 Turns You Into An Alien Sport Hunter

      I’m somewhat disappointed that the Helmet Predator 2 isn’t actually DOT certified.  I mean, imagine this novelty headgear paired with your Dark Knight or Wolverine motorcycle suit while you streak down the highway.  Plenty wild, right?  Of course, you can always still put it on, ride your bike, and just behead any cop that gives you beef about the helmet.  I’m sure nothing wrong will happen after that. Made by Russian outfit NLO Moto, it’s a costume replica of [...]

  • Pixit Is A Customizable Pixel Art Rubber Stamp

    Pixit Is A Customizable Pixel Art Rubber Stamp

    Customizable rubber stamps never really became a thing.  Mostly, because nobody invented one that’s actually functional and fun.  Well, that could change with the Pixit, a Quirky project that gives you an infinitely customizable rubber stamp. Unlike many multiple-design rubber stamps, this doesn’t involve a rotating mechanical thingie (like the Office Speak Rubber Stamp) or swappable rubber surfaces.  All those, after all, still put a serious limit on what things you can stamp on that Moleskine notebook your aunt got [...]

Made by Joseph Joseph, it’s a chopping board that folds into a curved colander with a perforated end for rinsing and subsequently draining all the meat and vegetables you chop in it.  That way, you go from chopping your [...]

  • Wonderbag Slow Cooker Uses No Gas Or Electricity

    Wonderbag Slow Cooker Uses No Gas Or Electricity

    Slow cookers are awesome — just drop a bunch of ingredients on a pot, go to work, and come home with a cooked meal waiting for you.  However, consuming power an entire day just doesn’t seem like all that great if there’s another option.  Well, there is and it’s called the Wonderbag. Instead of relying on a power source for heating your food, the pillow-like sack takes on a more passive approach.  Just heat your pot of food on a [...]

    Want a fancy lighting system that turns your room into a moody scene straight out of a horror/sci-fi flick?  The Firefly Blue Laser Lamp is your best option for doing just that, dispersing hundreds of blue laser lights flying around you. A portable lamp, it comes shaped like a giant dice out of a role-playing tabletop game with over two dozen sides, allowing it to spread the lasers in all directions from where it sits.  The result is a bunch [...]

    Plair Simplifies Streaming Content To Your TV

    There are plenty of solutions for wirelessly streaming content from computers to the TV.  Most of what we’ve seen, though, require you to buy into proprietary standards like Airplay or to mess with the streaming features on your favorite set-top box.  So far, the Plair is the most straightforward, portable streaming solution we’ve seen. Created by NewDealDesign, it’s a WiFi-enabled dongle that plugs into theTV’s HDMI port.  From there, just download the app onto your mobile device or open the [...]

    Mazooka Is A Bazooka For Firing Marshmallows

    Back when you went through a Hunger Games phase, the Bow and Mallow grew to become your favorite way to annoy family and friends.  Now that you’ve gotten over it, you want a new way to fling marshmallows: we recommend getting one of these Mazookas. One-upping your standard handheld marshmallow shooter, the toy takes on the form of a shoulder-fired mallow launcher, allowing you to pelt enemies with sugary treats Rambo-style.  It’s got power to spare, too, hurling mallows at [...]

    Full Size Racing Car Simulator Puts A Replica F1 Car In Your Home

    If you’re going to spend an unjustifiable amount of money on a racing simulator, might as well choose one that’s as realistic as it can get.  Other than having your own track built in the backyard, we doubt there’s anything that brings realism better than a full-sized F1 racer as a gaming platform, which is exactly what the Full Size Racing Car Simulator delivers. You know how gaming rigs now up the realism by using genuine bucket seats for race [...]

    Chill Puck Keeps Your Beverages Colder For Much Longer

    Once you take a beer can out of your stealthy DQM Chinook Cooler, there’s no choice: you either chug it down or it gets warm soon enough.  And warm beer really isn’t my cup of beer.  Doesn’t have to be that way, though, if you have the Chill Puck. A modified ice pack, it’s designed to attach to the bottom of a can, cooling down your booze long after you take it out of the chiller.  According to its creators, [...]

      Sometimes, you leave the house and it’s cold out, so you get back in and pick up your 30/30 Multi-Jacket.  A couple of hours later, the weather turns warm and you’re stuck having to carry a jacket around you no longer intend to wear.  Well, that sucks.  Not a problem with the S-Lab Light Jacket, a superlight windbreaker that you can fold up and cram into your pants pocket.

    Grip Clip Puts Storage Slots On Your Glasses – We Don’t Mind At All Actually

    Real nerds don’t wear pocket protectors anymore.  I mean, who wants to dress like a stereotype from the 80s, anyway?  If you’re going to go full nerd, you need something way more outrageous than that: we suggest the Grip Clip. When you go full nerd, glasses (make that GI Joe glasses) are mandatory — no contacts allowed.  And when you rock glasses, this little accessory adds a storage clip right on your glasses’ temples, allowing you to hold pencils, markers, [...]

    Who Thought Baby Masks Will Be This Creepy?

    You’ve had your fun with that Horse Head Mask and even upgraded to a Unicorn Mask once you got bored.  Now, it’s time to take it to the next level of creepy.  And, I swear, I’ve never really seen a mask that made me cringe the way these Lifelike Baby Masks do. Made by artist Landom Meier of Hyperflesh, it’s a real mask that depicts the likeness of a bald little baby doing one of his baby faces.  The result, [...]

    Crazyflie Nano-Quadrocopter: Your Army Of Mini-Drones Is Here

    Your Parrot Drone may be awesome, but there’s nothing stealth about it.  The thing’s just too big to fly without drawing massive attention.  If you want a smaller, stealthier drone to satisfy your whims, you may want to turn your focus on the Crazyflie Nano-Quadcopter instead. Sold as a kit, it’s not exactly the fun-out-of-the-box experience you’ll get with other toy quadrocopters in stores.  If you’re the type who likes to fiddle with your toys, though, this is about as [...]
