    This is the Alien Facehugger ski mask and Chestburster sweater available for preorder from Mondo. The ski mask costs $30 and the sweater $85. Unfortunately, there is no money-saving combo pack available. That's a shame. Obviously, I'm going to wear the facehugger mask to w... / Continue →

    Because Japan is the world's greatest innovator, these are women's stockings that have individual spots for your toes, and fake painted toenails printed on them. I just bought a pair but I am not impressed. "You put them on upside down." Oh. Also, are stockings supposed to ... / Continue →

    This is GROWTH, an origami pot created by London-based design firm Studio Ayaskan. The pot can be expanded as your plant grows so you don't have to repot. How convenient. You do have to add more soil though. Unfortunately, GROWTH pots aren't currently for sale, sorry to bur... / Continue →

    This is the Mona Lisa Copycat Art Scratcher designed by Erik Stehmann and Leonardo da Vinci. You might remember Erik from his previous line of cat scratching posts that look like dogs. You've probably never heard of Leonardo da Vinci. Did he invent pizza? Copycat Art Scratc... / Continue →

    Suckers, get it? It's double cool in this case because octopuses have suckers on their tentacles. Obviously, he took his suckers with him though. I don't know, I'm not that smart and none of my former teachers will admit that they taught me. Inky the octopus escaped the Nat... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a little girl cosplaying as BB-8 at WonderCon 2016 last weekend. Precious, right? She doesn't seem to know what to do with all the people around her watching and taking pictures. I wouldn't either. I do not like crowds. If a bar or restaurant is cr... / Continue →

    This is the Rocking-Knit, the brainchild of former art and design students Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex. It uses the rocking motion of the chair to knit a hat while you relax, preferably with a lemonade or iced tea in hand. Rocking without a lemonade or ice tea in hand is li... / Continue →

    This is Miss Meter, a $15 tape measure designed by OTOTO (and available for sale HERE) in the shape of a giraffe. The longer the tape, the long its neck gets, all the way to 2 meters (~6.5 feet). That is a long neck! Although actually pretty average for a real giraffe, whose... / Continue →

    This is the BBQ Toolbox from SUCK UK, a portable barbecue grill in the form of a classic red toolbox. "You're a BBQ toolbox." Damn right I am, I love grilling and I don't care who knows it. Unless you're the local fire department, in which case I was nowhere near that park o... / Continue →

    These are the pixelated lips of Canadian makeup artist Andrea Reed of Grey Girl Beauty. Pretty cool, right? What do you think? "I think I am in love." Haha -- the Microsoft Windows 95 logo, ladies and gentlemen! Keep going for a closeup.... / Continue →

    This is a model of a Japanese sushi restaurant built by LEGOManiac Dr. Pei. It's filled with a bunch of unique patrons like samurai, astronauts and aliens, and even has a functional rotating sushi conveyor belt. People are so clever. I am not very clever. On my last job app... / Continue →

    This is the Star Wars birthday cake (Happy Birthday Alexander!) with illuminated lightsabers made by Flickr user Lorenzo Wood. It uses two Neopixels LED strips to make the lightsabers glow. They are not edible. I'm kidding, everything is edible. Those lightsabers will burn ... / Continue →

    Why are you throwing money away? This is the old Macintosh Plus that Redditor HaHaBird modded into a trashcan. He cleverly replaced the computer's glass screen with a hinged acrylic panel, presumably to keep smells contained. My trashcan smells awful. I'm not sure what's in... / Continue →

    This is the $32 Melting Toht Candle available from Firebox. As it burns, it looks more and more like brutal Gestapo agent Arnold Ernst Toht as his face melts off at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, when the Nazis open the Ark of the Covenant and suffer the wrath of God. T... / Continue →

    This is the Fatboy Picnic Lounge, a 82″x 107″ picnic blanket that looks like an oriental rug. Unfortunately, It does not fly. It also doesn't cost less than $249, making it a little bit out of my picnic blanket budget at the moment. Let's just sit on the bare grass. "But wh... / Continue →

    This is the Volkswagen Beetle toy that Redditor Muppaphone spotted in a taxidermied beetle exhibit at the Cleveland Museum Of Natural History. Those museum curators -- such a wild bunch! Seriously, they are though. Because one time I got a behind-the-scenes tour of a museum ... / Continue →

    This is a Smart Car with a photographic wrap to make it look like the driver is riding a motorcycle. I think it's real, but it could be a Photoshop job. At first I thought the front fork of the motorcycle extended past the fender of the car, but I think the bottom of the fend... / Continue →
