    This is the Pillow 13x13x13 IQ Brick (not actually a Rubik's cube, just similar) available from Brando. It costs $320, which is pretty expensive for something I'm inevitably going to throw at the ground as hard as I can, then stab and set on fire. Just saying, you know what h... / Continue →

    This is the Blown Glass Solar System Ornament Set. It includes the sun (not shown) and all nine planets (high-five, Pluto!). Unfortunately, the set costs $375, which is significantly out of my ornament budget this year. I can barely afford to string popcorn together. Beside... / Continue →

    This is the $13 Samus Amiibo Super Smash Bros toy that recently sold on eBay for a cool $2,500 because she was accidentally made with dual arm cannons instead of just one. Apparently somebody was willing to pay a $2,487 premium for that. So now would be a great time to know s... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of Knightscope K5 security robots. They look like a cross between R2-D2, a Dalek, and the kind of buttplug you'd expect to find on a space station. Microsoft already tested a crew of them at its Silicon Valley campus. And you can rent some too, starting as ... / Continue →

    This is the Alien Facehugger Dog Leash made and sold by Etsy shop GCFX. It costs $150, which is a little out of my dog leash budget (I use three shoelaces tied together and a safety pin). Also, the facehugger is actually attached to a black fabric harness, which is hard to se... / Continue →
