    This is Simone Giertz's Wake Up Machine, an alarm clock that slaps you in the face with a rubber hand until you turn it off. Granted it's not the most professionally made machine, which explains why Simone's hair starts gets tangled in the spinner. Still, the concept is there... / Continue →

    This is a red-hot knife built by certifiable crazy person Colin Furth that can cut and toast bread at the same time. He built it using a modified microwave transformer. Could you imagine sawing your own arm off with that thing? Do you think it would it cut and cauterize the ... / Continue →

    The cross-bladed axe is the brainchild of Instructables user KH4 and can cut a log into four pieces with a single swing. For reference, that is twice as many pieces as a regular axe can. Of course it probably takes more power to drive a cross-bladed axe, but I'm practically m... / Continue →

    The Sandwich Knife actually consists of two knives, with one blade offset vertically so when you cut from a loaf, it keeps the bottom of the two pieces of sandwich bread attached. They'll cost around $30 - $40 depending on how quickly you order one, and whether the Kickstarter... / Continue →

    This is the $40 Nut Hammer. It's exactly what it sounds like unless you thought it was some sort of S&M sex toy, in which case my balls just snuck back inside me like Homer Simpson disappearing into that bush even thinking about it. Same goes for a nut tenderizer. You just p... / Continue →

    In what is arguably the best invention since sliced bread, the Butterup Knife (links to Kickstarter where you can order one for around $11) was designed to easily spread cold butter without tearing your bread to shit. It works by grating a stick of butter into smaller, more ea... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like a futuristic TNT detonator, The Airdrop is basically a dehumidifier for use outdoors that can pull water from the air, and use it to water thirsty plants. Which reminds me...*opening closet door* Have you learned your lesson, fern?! "Waaaa... / Continue →

    Google was recently awarded a patent for this 'see with your hand' device, a glove with a fingertip camera/sensors that would allow you to 'see' what your fingers do (SPOILER: boogers) or control a computer with hand gestures. *flipping the bird, computer downloads virus* "[W... / Continue →

    Note: 5-second video after the jump probably NSFW on account of a bra being clapped off and exposing a pair of pastied titties I had to watch three times to make sure weren't mine. The clap-off bra: not as cool as an ogle-and-drool-off bra, but this isn't exactly the future ... / Continue →

    Why it actually needs to grow a sleeve instead of just having one pre-installed is beyond me, but I suspect it has something to do with NOVELTY. Which, fun fact: rich people will pay for. Also, their pets back if you kidnap them. Anyway, the Heatswell Coffee Cup from Amron E... / Continue →

    This is a patent from 1963 for a device that's supposed to make birthing easier by practically shooting babies out of vaginas with the helpful hand of centrifugal force. Basically a woman is strapped into this thing, it starts spinning like mad, and she projectile vomits for a... / Continue →

    Balloon Boy's father, best known for being a jackass loser (and raising boys that look suspiciously like girls, picture related), has gotten into the inventing game, and just released his first POS, the $20 "Bear Scratcher", a tree branch you screw to the wall and scratch your ... / Continue →

    Forgotten for over 40 years, powdered water is back and looks like coke. But don't snort it! Actually, do snort it -- I want to see what happens. More, do more. MORE! Haha, what do you mean, "why is it brown?" Because you've been snorting heroin! I said, "BECAUSE YOU'VE ... / Continue →

    The Snazzy Napper is a real-ass product that, despite the name, isn't really very snazzy (Bedazzle that shit, God!). What it is is a piece of cheap fabric you velcro around your head so you can rest in peace (I'll kill you!) while you travel. Did I mention it has a hole for y... / Continue →

    Stand-up toothbrushes are toothbrushes with an integrated Weeble Wobble (read: weighted base) at one end so they always stand up and don't collect shit particulate laying on the bathroom sink (oh it's there -- you can't see it but it's there). Take one look at this brilliant d... / Continue →

    Hat Cams are perfect for the spy who doesn't really understand spying. I'm looking at you, Mr. Bond. You couldn't spy your way out of a wet-paper bag with a laser watch and bow-tie camera! Also, go get tested. Hat Cams are $30 hats with a standard camera mount attached to t... / Continue →

    Because people are stupid as hell, plus dumb, times I'm so ashamed to be human right now, a recent study of 4,000 morons landed the iPhone in 8th place of the world's most important inventions. Like, the most important inventions EVER. Including jetpacks and lasers. *facepal... / Continue →

    The ThermaHelm motorcycle helmet keeps your brain on ice in the event of an accident. That's important because if you'll recall those anti-drug commercials from yesteryear: a cooked egg brain is no good. Except with buttered toast. I say throw a halved grapefruit into the mi... / Continue →

    This is a very well made stop-motion LEGO short. I highly recommend you watch it. I did -- twice, and I found it really inspiring. Not as inspirational as the Special Olympics, but still pretty good. Lego Short Film Makes Me Want to Play With Legos Immediately [gizmodo]... / Continue →
