  • Beach7 AirLounge XL Is A Party-Sized Inflatable Couch

    Beach7 AirLounge XL Is A Party-Sized Inflatable Couch

    Inflatable furniture is far from what can be construed as classy (even if they look really classy like the Blofield Inflatables).  The domain of the sophisticated, it definitely isn’t.  So that picture of the Beach7 AirLounge XL with the nicely-dressed party of folks drinking cocktails probably won’t be your reality.  However, that doesn’t take away from the sheer awesomeness of this thing. A round-shaped sofa, it comes in two parts: a huge outer couch and an inner couch that can [...]

    Thunderbolt Express Dock Is A Glorious All-in-One IO Hub

    Apple’s Thunderbolt ports are pretty great, with the simultaneous 10Gbps upstream and downstream capabilities.  At this day and age, though, it’s really still rare we’ll need to transfer that much data over cables, so might as well use that port to tidy up your mess of a work desk.  That’s exactly what the Thunderbolt Express Dock will allow.

    Starbucks Stainless Steel Chiseled Tumbler – Do Want

    Starbucks is a literal cash trap, making you wait in line for your coffee just long enough so you can admire and impulsively pick up one of the numerous products they have prominently displayed on the shelves.  The next time I’m in, I’ll probably be tempted to  buy one of these Stainless Steel Chiseled Tumblers and I can’t help but give in to the urges.

    Painted Animal Skulls: Manly Décor Can be Pretty, Too

    Putting up roadkill skulls as trophy head displays doesn’t seem like the most appropriate way to dress up your urban chic apartment.  There’s just something very 90s industrial metal about it — not the kind of thing a sophisticated man of the 21st century will use for decor.  Unless, of course, they get finished in bright colors like these Painted Animal Skulls. Made by Stephan Alexandr, these are real skulls retrieved from animals who passed on.  Some are partial, some [...]

    BBQ Bruce Is A Hanging Grill For The Balcony

    Urban living can be nice, but it usually means missing out on small pleasures like weekend barbecues.  If you’ve got a balcony and the next-window neighbors won’t mind the smoke, the BBQ Bruce Handrail Grill should make for a suitable outdoor cooker. Designed by Henrick Decker, it’s a small rectangular grill that hangs onto the handrails of a balcony.  Yep, much like those small hanging flowerpots for small urban spaces.  Instead of holding soil and plants, though, it comes with [...]

    EMX Is An E-Bike With No Pedals, Gears Nor Chains

    We’ve seen an ever-growing field of electric bicycles that teeter the line between bicycles and motorcycles, from the high-speed Stealth Bomber to the downhill-going FX Mountain Moto.  Might as well add another one to this interesting lineup: the motocross-inspired EMX. At first glance, the electric mountain bike looks like your standard pedal-assist MTB.  Except, when you look closer, there’s actually no pedals to assist.  In fact, there’s not even any chain or gears, which makes the “bicycle” classification really iffy.  [...]

  • Zombie Slayer Axe Boasts Gorgeously Barbaric Chain Link Handle

    Zombie Slayer Axe Boasts Gorgeously Barbaric Chain Link Handle

    I always thought zombie-slaying weapons needed to look more like handheld bladed weapons from barbarian movies of old.  Post-apocalyptic bandit gangs just don’t look half as awesome when they walk around with the same crossbows, axes and jungle bolos as everybody else.  The Zombie Slayer Axe doesn’t suffer from this problem. Made by blacksmith Stephen Heeney, it’s an axe designed specifically for hacking zombie skulls.  The creator, in fact, recommends not bothering to use it to chop wood, as it’s [...]
