    Corkscapes Hand Cut Wall Decals Add Cork Decor To Your Room

    Corkboards are plenty useful.  They are, however, a far cry from being affable to look at, which is why we tend to keep them out of the way, such as inside our office cubicles, on the side of the fridge or some other part of the house where they won’t be very prominent.  Corkscapes offer a way to bring corkboards into more prominent areas of your digs. How?  By turning them out in fancy, decorative shapes that make them every [...]

    DARPA Warrior Web Suit Remains HIdden, Gives You Monster Strength

    Being a soldier ain’t easy.  Not only do you put your life on the line day in and day out, you also do it while carrying heavy packs that can, occasionally, exceed 100 pounds.  The DARPA Warrior Web Suit looks to help with that burden. Currently in the prototype stage, it’s an exoskeleton that’s meant to be worn like an undergarment — that is, hidden under your military fatigues.  That way, you don’t go around dressed like a half-human, half-robot [...]

    Shut Up And Take My Money – B Hybrid RC Car And Quadcopter

    We still don’t have flying cars regularly plying our skies in 2013 and we doubt they’re getting here any time soon.  Might as well get our fill of futuristic rides with RC toys, right?  The B Hybrid Car and Quadrocopter is exactly the kind of flying car we’d like to have sometime in our future. Actually can I have one now please? In flight mode, it’s a quad-rotor RC helicopter that will take off vertically, then hover and fly towards [...]

    Colin Selig Recycles Propane Tanks Into Beautiful Chairs And Benches

    Ever seen one of those large propane tanks they keep in warehouses or transport using big trailer trucks?  Those have really limited life cycles because once they start to corrode or get damaged, they’re, essentially, thrown out — repairing them is rarely allowed because of the critical nature of their function (i.e. holding gas under pressure).  We’re not exactly sure what happens to those tanks when they’re discarded, but somebody has started using them to build fine-looking Propane Tank Chairs.

    Wheat Beer Shampoo Cleans Your Hair With Booze

    Drinking  beer or any kind of alcohol as a matter of fact in moderation is fine in our books.  Unless you’re trying to lose a gut or nurse a sickness, that is.  If you’d still like to have beer around even as you cut down, though, you could get it in other ways.  Like this Wheat Beer Shampoo. The perfect complement to your Dogfish Head Beer Soap, it’s a real shampoo made partly with wheat beer.  That way, you can [...]

    Agent Brings Dual Processors, Wireless Charging To Smartwatches

    It’s inevitable — smartwatches (yes, we guess that’s a word now) are likely going to be a big part of our future.  The relative success of the Pebble watch is testament to that.  As expected of any new gadget category, the competitors are going to descend and the Agent Smart watch is among the most interesting we’ve seen. Created by Secret Labs and the House of Horology, it brings a sporty aesthetic that feels just a tad more masculine than [...]

    Turnstone Buoy Is A Tilting, Swiveling Exercise Seat Helping You Burn Calories

    Many of us spend the day sitting on our backsides, then come home to do the same thing in our comfy couches.  While you can always get one of those standing desks to shake off some calories, going upright for an entire workday doesn’t sound all that fun either.  And those exercise machine office chairs are just way too big for your cramped cubicles.  Maybe the Turnstone Buoy will make for a more suitable solution. A stool designed for “active [...]

  • Plume Is A Better Mudguard For Bicycles

    Plume Is A Better Mudguard For Bicycles

    Existing bicycle mudguards work well enough.  Well, aside from the fact that they’re usually ugly.  And that a lot of them aren’t very durable.  And that they’re really easy to steal.  The Plume is looking to change that. Billed as a “better mudguard,” it brings a streamlined design that makes it a better fit with the look of most bicycles in the market.  It’s slim, compact and unobtrusive, making for a mudguard that hardly makes a dent in your bike’s [...]

    2014 Honda Grom Brings Big Bike Aggression In A Small Motorcycle

    We’re not exactly sure what category the 2014 Honda Grom fits in. It’s 12 inch wheels remind us of Honda NSR 50 and NSF 100 mini bikes which are great beginner mini  bikes to get into motorcycle racing. Although it is too big for a monkey bike; a heck of a lot sportier than a scooter; and about 3/4 the size of a conventional street motorcycle.  Basically, it’s a small bike with big bike looks and a smattering of big [...]

    Single Handed Barber: DIY Self Haircutting Made Easier

    You like cutting your own hair.  Like many who do, though, you usually end up having to bring it to a stylist anyway because, let’s be honest, cutting you own hair is just a horrible idea.  The exception to this is when all you’re doing is trimming your scalp to create a close-cropped hairstyle — just invest in a good electric trimmer and you’re good to go.  The Single Handed Barber just might be the best electric trimmer for DIY [...]

    Celebrate Daft Punk’s Newest Album With This Replica Helmet

    Daft Punk’s latest album, Random Access Memories, just dropped this week.  And while I’ve quit buying music for a long time now (between streaming services, free internet radio and YouTube, buying songs is just overkill for me), the occasion definitely makes lusting for this replica Daft Punk Helmet very appropriate. Created by Etsy seller Mauricio Santoro, it’s a true-to-life recreation of Daft Punk member Thomas Bangalter’s crazy sci-fi-quality headgear.  That way, you can hit the clubs pretending to be that [...]

Made using sturdy nylon, the ropes come with a special reflective strip that’s woven right into the line.  While it won’t light up all on its own, it will reflect brightly when the beam of your Giant [...]

    World’s Biggest LEGO Set Stars Wars X-Wing Starfighter – Biggest Picture Gallery!

    We’ve said it once, we’ll say it again: make something very huge and it becomes indomitably impressive. Apparently, the same thing is true with LEGO sets because this gigantic LEGO Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter brings a whole bundle of awesome. A replica of the assault spacecrafts bearing the X-shaped wings from the Star Wars universe, it’s been built to a life-size 1:1 scale, measuring 11 feet tall and 43 feet long, with a 44 feet wingspan.

    Elio Is A 100 Mph, 84 Mpg Three Wheeled Car For $6800 – And We Want One Bad!

    Sure, three-wheeled commuter cars still look odd.  Despite that, you can’t deny they likely have a place on our future roads, with new ones popping up on a steady basis.  The Elio, a new entrant to this half-motorcycle, half-car category, might be one of the most interesting. Housing a 1-liter 3-cylinder front-mounted engine, the Elio puts out a paltry 70 hp. While that may not sound much, it’s enough to push the lightweight ride to respectable speeds of 100 mph [...]
