    Bathing Bad: Breaking Bad Fans Need A Relaxing Bath, Too

    Seriously, the wait for the last 8 episodes of Breaking Bad is agonizing.  And from what I know, it won’t be up till the second half of the summer.  In the meantime, you can satiate your Breaking Bad longing by playing with your Walter White action figure while soaking in a tub filled with these Bathing Bad Bath Salts. Don’t worry, these aren’t the designer drug variety of bath salts that precipitated a mini-zombie infestation a short while back.  Instead, [...]

  • Luminair Tree Tent: Forget Cabins, Get A Tree House Instead

    Luminair Tree Tent: Forget Cabins, Get A Tree House Instead

    You just bought a sweet piece of property by the lake a couple hours off city limits.  And you’ve been thinking of using it as your hiding grounds in case of an apocalyptic event.  While you can always buy one of those pre-fab Bunkies for that, we’re thinking something like the Luminair Tree Tent will be plenty more appropriate. Just don’t confuse it with Cocoon tree hanging tent we covered in the past. If you’re hiding from threats, a tree-mounted [...]

  • Qumarion Is A Toy Mannequin For Automatically Animating 3D Models

    Qumarion Is A Toy Mannequin For Automatically Animating 3D Models

    Creating a 3D model is hard enough.  Animating them takes the skill required a whole other level.  The Qumarion Humanoid Input Device aims to simplify the process, allowing animators to simply move a humanoid model to register a movement on the computer. Made by Celsys, it’s a miniature articulated mannequin that you can position in various poses.  While similar contraptions have been available in the past, most mannequins have served to act as reference for artists — something they can [...]

    Galaxy Chair Mats Put The Universe At Your Feet

    Chair mats are plenty useful if you want to protect your flooring or carpet from being ravaged by your favorite Steelcase Gesture Office Chair.  Most of what you can get at Office Depot, though, are just plain boring.  Bring a little out of this world inspiration into your workspace with Underfoot Media’s Galaxy Chair Mats. Printed with images from the NASA Hubble Telescope and the Spitzer Space Telescope, the chair mats let you enjoy stunning snapshots of majestic scenes from [...]

  • Invisiplug Power Strips Blend In With Your Hardwood Floor

    Invisiplug Power Strips Blend In With Your Hardwood Floor

    Power strips are basically ugly.  Even when pushed up against the wall, they make for a noticeable eyesore, whether they’re laid across the floor of your media center, bedroom or workstation.  The Invisiplug offers to make them just a tad more presentable. Granted, I’m disappointed that it’s not actually invisible.  Wonder Woman won’t have any part of that.  Done up in colors designed to match wood flooring, however, the novel power strip solution makes erstwhile indispensable eyesores look like a [...]

  • 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 [...]

    Rinse & Chop Plus Combines Cutting Board And Colander

    We’ve seen a lot of awesome chopping board designs, from an OCD Chef Board to one with multiple compartments.  And we don’t mind finding a few more.  This Rinse & Chop Plus Cutting Board definitely belongs in our list of favorites. 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 [...]

    Blue Laser Lamp Illuminates Your Room With Hundreds Of Shooting Lasers

    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, [...]
