    This is the $15 Game of Thrones Stark Direwolf Sculpted Mug. It holds 12-ounces of coffee and booze, has "WINTER IS COMING" printed on the side and a 3D gray direwolf head in the bottom. Will it be enough to scare away whoever's been sneaking laxatives into my coffee every mo... / Continue →

    This is a knife block that looks like an X-wing fighter (£70, ~$120). It comes with and holds five different knives (cook's, bread, carving, utility and paring). What's your favorite kind of knife? Mine is a ninja sword. "That is not a knife." And my penis isn't a laser gun... / Continue →

    This is the mecha smartphone holder ($90) made and sold by Etsy shop MechWorld. It looks like it's made out of a bunch of cabinet door hinges and other hardware. It also looks like it would be a real treat to accidentally step on in the middle of the night. "But why would it... / Continue →

    This is the $35 Cleaver Clutch Bag available from Kreepsville 666. Apparently it makes the perfect accessory for an eyeball ring and Photoshopped bloody arm. However it does NOT make the perfect accessory to an actual crime, because it's going to draw attention. When somebod... / Continue →

    This is the Cell Phone Holder Party Cup available from Perpetual Kid for $9. It's a cup with a silly straw that's shaped to hold a touchscreen smartphone. I can't tell if your drink actually passes through the straw around the phone, but it would be a shame if it didn't. It'... / Continue →

    Because everyone likes pretending they're a knight when they cook, James Brown (no not THAT James Brown, silly! The one with the green hair in the video after the jump) has created a Kickstarter for Combat Kitchenware, a line of cookware with weapon handles instead of plain on... / Continue →

    Way back in the day people used to drink out of animal horns as a sign of badassness. Or maybe they were for satanic rituals. Truthfully, I'm not sure why the hell they did it, but they did. Me? I drink out of a plastic chalice that says, "GW'S HAPPY SAUCE" on it in puffy p... / Continue →

    This is a leather Majora's Mask wallet crafted by artist Jacob Vadnais. Apparently he makes and sells them in his Etsy store but there aren't any for sale right now because how could wallets this cool NOT go like hotcakes? Just look at the detail. It's really...what's the wo... / Continue →

    This is the BevBuckle. At first glance it might look like a regular old belt buckle, but IT IS SO MUCH MORE. Namely, a beer holder. You see, the front plate folds down and a metal ring pops up to hold a can or bottle. Just make sure you have your belt on tight or your might... / Continue →

    This is the Clopen Shelf from Torafu Architects. It might just look like a plain old shelf, BUT IT CONTAINS A HIDDEN DRAWER FOR VALUABLES. Don't own any valuables? Welcome to the club. The drawer is only 23mm (~0.9 of an inch) tall though, so you can forget about stashing a... / Continue →

    This is the Vice Canister series from designer Jonathan Adler. Truthfully, I wouldn't really judge you if you had a ganja jar. Or a mushroom one, provided you have a job and they for weekend/festival use only. But if you have a quaalude or downer jar expect to be judged HARD... / Continue →

    This is a video from Cornell's Creative Machines Lab (for the last time: WE DON'T NEED ANY MORE CREATIVE MACHINES. Microwaves and vibrators -- that's it) featuring a robotic "jamming-based gripper" capable of picking up and throwing any object. The concept is simple: there's ... / Continue →

    Seen here hanging out with the shoes of his fallen enemies, a half-ton scrap metal Transformer shows off his wine-storing capabilities. Not bad, Optimus Wino, but let's see how well you store my foot up your ass! HI-YA! Okay, that might need a tetanus shot. Per Craigslist a... / Continue →

    The tablet claw is a G.I. Joe kung fu one-hand grip for the iPad. It has a ring on the back you stick your fingers through. Plus it has two other integrated stands (vertical and horizontal) for when you're not holding it (or need to pick a boogie without playing Angry Birds w... / Continue →

    I've got that same hat! This is a beer saddle for your dog. It holds four cans or bottles. I don't know about you, but I could really go for a warm beer covered in dog hair right now. The saddle fits most larger breeds (and crush most smaller breeds) and is currently on cle... / Continue →

    The Magnogrip bracelet is a magnetic bracelet that holds nuts and bolts and screws and other metal bits so they're easily accessible when you're building manly-ass things like dollhouses. You can order the MagnoGrip magnetic wristband at Amazon for $11 (USD); there's also a pi... / Continue →
